McCain: Obama, Get Over Israel 'Tantrum' President's priorities 'so screwed up that it's unbelievable' By Polly Davis Doig, Newser Staff Posted Mar 22, 2015 1:03 PM CDT 115 comments Comments In this Feb. 5, 2015, file photo, Sen.

Scott Applewhite, File) (Newser) – President Obama pulled no punches in his blunt assessment of Benjamin Netanyahu's campaign rhetoric, and John McCain is today taking his own jabs at Obama. Appearing this morning on CNN, he said, "The president should get over it. Get over your temper tantrum, Mr. President." He dismissed Obama's priorities in the region as "so screwed up that it's unbelievable," dismissed Netanyahu's comments as "the least of your problems," and dismissed Obama's consideration of a UN resolution backing a Palestinian state—except to threaten it, saying, "then the United States Congress would have to examine our funding for the United Nations." He continued: "It's time that we work together with our Israeli friends and try to stem this tide of ISIS and Iranian movement throughout the region, which is threatening the very fabric of the region." Other highlights from your Sunday dial, per the Hill: Kevin McCarthy on Obama's Bibi response: "It's not about him, it's not about the administration. This is about the mutual concern we have for Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon. This administration should be better than this." Homeland Security Committee chief Mike McCaul on Yemen: "Yemen is one of the most dangerous spots in the world. And now, because we are withdrawing completely, we will have no intelligence footprint or capabilities to monitor what AQAP and ISIS and the Shia militants are doing in the region." Calif. Gov. Jerry Brown on Ted Cruz's pending announcement: "That man betokens such a level of ignorance and a direct falsification of scientific data" (because of his views on climate change). "It’s shocking and I think that man has rendered himself absolutely unfit to be running for office." McCain on Cruz: "He is a valued member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, him and I are friendly and I think he is a very viable candidate." But, "Lindsey Graham is the one I think knows best about national security."
