Retweeted by David AxelrodSmart of Boehner to bury retreat on Homeland Security bill on the day when Bibi's visit will dominate the news.Speech broke no new ground nor offered realistic path short of war. But apocalyptic language & GOP cheerleading tailor-made for his base.Not a plan.Eager for Bibi to make the turn and share his plan for preventing Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. What's Plan B?Iran is a grave issue. But make no mistake: Bibi's speech is more about an "existential threat" to his own electoral prospects in 2 weeks.
