    Talk with Menendez and his associates, Pelosi, Reid, and Schumer are Obama clones and therefore are not in complete control of their mental faculties. The congress on the other hand are a captive audience who must stand, smile, and clap while they are being fed hogslope by Obama. Having a true Allie of the U.S. Such as Bebe addressing them will be a refreshing shot of true patriotism which they are in desperate need of. Bebe represents the truth, speaks from the heart and has a genuine concern for the welfare of the United states and Israel….those attributes are in complete opposition to the Obsma regime.
