And this is the thanks Obama gets for campaigning for him? That might be exactly what Harry Reid hears from Obama just as soon as the president hops in his DeLorean and returns from 2008.

Politico:

The most powerful Democrat in Congress, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), on Monday night publicly rejected President Barack Obama’s decision to use a recent speech to lay out aspects of a potential peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians.

“The place where negotiating will happen must be at the negotiating table – and nowhere else,” Reid declared in a speech to an annual gathering in Washington of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). “Those negotiations … will not happen – and their terms will not be set – through speeches, or in the streets, or in the media.”

Hamas has joined Harry Reid and Israel in rejecting Obama’s suggestion that the 1967 borders be used as a starting point for negotiations. We’ll now wait for Chris Matthews to point out that all sides agreeing to disagree with Obama is part of the president’s ingenious way of baiting opposing parties into finding common ground.

As worked up as Reid got over this, you’d think that Netanyahu had just told him the Palestinians support de-funding cowboy poetry:
