27. Obama did not refuse to meet with Netanyahu... that is pure FUD and republican FUD at that

 

The White House denied published reports that Mr. Obama had rejected Netanyahu's request to meet with Mr. Obama in Washington next week. No such request was made or rejected, White House spokesman Tommy Vietor said.

U.S. and Israeli officials confirmed Tuesday that Mr. Obama would not meet with Netanyahu when the Israeli leader goes to New York for the U.N. General Assembly later this month. Both sides cited scheduling issues and rejected suggestions that Netanyahu had been snubbed.

Some U.S. officials have bristled at what they see is Netanyahu's attempts to exploit the U.S. campaign season to push Mr. Obama into a difficult position. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were discussing a sensitive diplomatic matter.

The U.S. officials stopped short of accusing Netanyahu of taking sides in the election, but the Israeli prime minister has a longtime relationship with Republican candidate Mitt Romney and with Sheldon Adelson, a casino magnate and top donor to the Republican Party. Romney, who visited Israel in July, has repeatedly criticized Mr. Obama's handling of the nuclear issue.
