Obama's role during the Israeli elections was larger than reported, according to a pollster for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party.
"What was not well reported in the American media is that President Obama and his allies were playing in the election to defeat Prime Minister Netanyahu," John McLaughlin, a Republican strategist, said in an interview on John Catsimatidis's "The Cats Roundtable" radio show broadcast Sunday on AM 970 in New York.
"There was money moving that included taxpayer U.S. dollars, through non-profit organizations. And there were various liberal groups in the United States that were raising millions to fund a campaign called V15 against Prime Minister Netanyahu," McLaughlin said.
He noted an effort to oust Netanyahu was guided by former Obama political operative Jeremy Bird and that V15, or Victory 15, ads hurt Netanyahu in the polls.
"The State Department people in the end of January, early February, expedited visas for [Israeli] Arab leaders to come to the United States to learn how to vote," McLaughlin said.
"There were people in the United States that were organizing them to vote in one party so they would help the left-of-center candidate, Herzog, that the Obama administration favored," he added.

U.S.-tied anti-Bibi group vows: 'We are here to stay' http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3269513/posts
I think Bibi is starting to play hardball. Good for him.
First Obama lost the House. Then the Senate. Now Israel.
Yet another thing he touches goes to hell.
And his backers continue to support him.
Another thing Clinton did successfully that Obama can’t—defeat Bibi in an election.
It looked like gold. Then he touched it. Now it looks like him.
I hope Bibi goes after the Obamaites criminally for interfering in Israeli elections.
nobama: It’s not nice to fool around with God’s Chosen People. You’ll get burned every time.
and smells like him, too.
Maybe Bibi can mess with our elections, supporting Ted Cruz, just to mess with the dems’ heads?
Is it getting late? Should I go to bed?
I want Ted Cruz to win so badly, I can’t stand it!
The only thing that gives me pause is my serious fear of the oncoming collapse of our economy - that the dems will try to blame anyone else to avoid the truth - that their ridiculous outdated socialist-marxist ideology is, once again, failing, and destroying our country and it’s citizens.
what a useless pos obama is.
The narcissist in chief will never get it.
His 15.5 minutes of fame and being liked were over years ago. He is living in the past but his mentally deranged mind will never accept it.
He simply can’t accept he is no longer liked by the majority of the planet. In fact; he is more hated than any US President - ever.
Sadly, before him, citizens of other countries understood it was the politicians in the USA that were the problem. Now, thanks to this hater in chief, the world thinks all Americans are like him.
We know it’s not true but they don’t and therein lies the problem...
That is necessary! We have NO business in meddling in Israel’s elections. Who do we attempt to dictate to next?? Britain, Canada, France?
“There were people in the United States that were organizing them to vote in one party so they would help the left-of-center candidate, Herzog, that the Obama administration favored,” he added.”
Yeah, that worked out real well. Not complaining, though. I mean, it’s great that (for once) the disastrous touch of Obama worked in our favor, LOL.
One must wonder if the Republicans will investigate the use of US taxpayer money to influence the Israeli election.
Surely, that violates one or more Federal laws?
And why aren't WE going after him?
Interfering in the election of a foreign country USED to be illegal. did the law change - or is the Pres_ent above ALL laws?
Another thing Clinton did successfully that Obama cantdefeat Bibi in an election.
This is actually strike two for Obama.
Obama sent the Clinton’s Stanley Greenberg and Obama’s team of DNC operatives, Ayers Acorn and SEIU Community Organizers, Trumka’s AFL-CIO thugs, and Media Benjamin Code Pink operatives along with many members of the media to the Middle East to work on the ground there to simultaneously overthrow Egypt’s Mubarak, Libya’s Gaddafi, Israel’s Netanyahu, The King of Jordan and Syria’s Assad as well as the Yemeni (actually ground zero for the Arab Spring riots) and Iraqi governments as part of the Obama’s Arab Spring Putsch.
Greenberg was heavily involved in both Mubarak’s overthrow and in the attempt to overthrow Netanyahu using populist message, mass open air organizing parties and concerts and the promise of the emergence of a “new,unknown, young, and exciting Obamaesqe charismatic Israeli Progressive candidate” to replace Netanyahu and the Likud.
Many of the Obama anti Mubarak organizers including Ayers and Meda Benjamin were almost killed when one of the riots they incited went out of their control and backfired on them.
The latter. Sigh....
