Leave it to Matt Drudge to ding President Obama on his failure to arrange a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
For the first time since taking office, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is slated to visit the United States without meeting US President Barack Obama. The lack of a meeting later this month comes in the midst of roiling tensions between Jerusalem and Washington over setting red lines for Iran’s nuclear program.
Some have seen the absence of a face-to-face conversation as a further sign of strain in the relationship.
But, the pirate photo which was taken in 2009 was revived by the Obama Campaign for International Talk Like A Pirate Day. Here is the tweet:

You know it is all priorities for the President.
Somehow, I think meeting with the Israeli Prime Minister over Iran’s development of nuclear weapons is a bit more important. But, maybe Obama will be MORE flexible after the is re-elected?
Anyone want to make a bet on that?Barack Obama, Marr Drudge
