Asked if Democrats might skip Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress about Iran next month, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi answered, “I don’t know.”

On one level, I hope the Dems stay home. That way, there won’t be any confusion about which party is most devoted to American and Israeli security.

The implied threat is remarkable — and a sign of how bent out of shape the White House remains over Speaker John Boehner’s invitation to the Israeli prime minister. The growing anger is turning what aides initially called a breach of protocol into a dangerous test of how far the party will go to defend President Obama’s foolish pride.

Iran is the most dangerous nation on earth, and Obama’s disproportionate reaction to the planned speech reveals his determination not to have reality intrude on his craven negotiations with the mad mullahs. By all accounts, he has offered so many concessions that the deal in the works would effectively approve Iranian nukes.

Israel will be first in the cross hairs, and Netanyahu won’t be shy about saying so. But America won’t be safe, either, so he is alerting us to the danger Obama refuses to see.

Dems who go along with Obama’s recklessness will be putting party over country. Most have been doing that for six years anyway, but skipping the speech will mark them as unforgivably guilty.
