Who Needs Enemies With Friends Like These?

When I read last week that there were over 20 House and Senate Democrats that planned to boycott Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to Congress this morning, I was furious.  Today, I read that the numbers had increased to 50.  Those members of Congress are paid to do a job by “we, the people”…
