Boehner Aims To Mend Relations During His Trip To Israel

House Speaker John Boehner is heading on a trip to Israel, a trip that he says was planned months before his invitation for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address Congress and his subsequent re-election. Boehner made it clear that this wasn't a "victory lap."

During his Sunday interview on CNN's "State of the Union," Boehner discussed mending the damaged relationship between the U.S. and Israel. He said, "I'm the most open, transparent guy in this town, and I'm going to be myself, and if there's anything I can do to repair it [the relationship], I'd be happy to do it.

Boehner did blame the problems on President Obama by saying the administration put so much pressure on Netanyahu that he had no choice but to speak out on the Iran nuclear talks. Boehner doesn't blame Netanyahu and said, "I don't blame him at all for speaking up. I think the animosity exhibited by our administration toward the prime minister of Israel is reprehensible."

When asked about whether or not he thought an agreement would be reached, Boehner conveyed that he has "serious doubts." He also said, "I just don't understand why we would sign an agreement with a group of people who in my opinion have no intention of keeping their word." If there is no agreement, Boehner promised to act "very quickly" to reinstate and increase sanctions against Iran.
