Another ‘general policy’ bites the dust’: Kerry and Biden meet with Netanyahu election rival

President Obama recently gave this excuse for why he wouldn’t meet with Benjamin Netanyahu when he’s in the country for a planned speech to a joint session of Congress (less any Democrats who are definitely not boycotting but just might be too busy to show up):

A meeting so close to Israel’s March 17 election could be seen as helping Netanyahu.

“I’m declining to meet with him simply because our general policy is we don’t meet with any world leader two weeks before their election,” Obama said in an excerpt of a CNN interview released on Wednesday.

Obama said that’s his administration’s “general” policy, because it generally only applies to Netanyahu:

Just days after letting everyone know they wouldn’t be on hand to greet and listen to Netanyahu, both Biden and Kerry met with Israeli opposition leader Isaac Herzog on the sidelines of a security conference in Munich, Germany on Saturday. And this just a month before Israel’s March 17 elections.

Kerry and Biden plan to airdrop a few thousand “Herzog 2016” yard signs on Israel on their way back home, but other than that the Obama administration is staying out of that election.
