United States President Barack Obama invited German Chancellor Angela Merkel to Washington on Wednesday, hoping to mend fences after a row provoked by revelations of U.S. eavesdropping on her cellphone, AFP reports.

Obama called Merkel to wish her a speedy recovery after her recent skiing injury and invited her to visit at a “mutually agreeable time in the coming months,” the White House said in a statement quoted by the news agency.

Merkel reacted furiously towards the end of 2013 to revelations that the National Security Agency had been listening in on her mobile, telling Obama in October that this would be a “breach of trust” between two allies. …

I’m pretty sure Obama already had a bustectomy...

He regurgitated the thing to Great Britain.

"Hey, Angela! I heard you fractured your pelvis! You have to lie down for weeks? That's a shame. Tell you what -- why don't you hop a plane -- try to get a window seat, okay? You can cross the Atlantic and land in DC. Traffic might be bad, but everyone likes a nice car ride, eh? When you get here, I'll be really busy and keep you waiting for a few hours. Then we can have a pointless conversation and I can make some bad jokes about your phone conversations that we've all listened to. Then you can fly back and see your doctor ...
okay?"

“...President Barack Obama invited German Chancellor Angela Merkel to Washington ...”

Yes, and he will probably spy on her .... maybe she needs an anti-Slow Joe pill.

Hey, Merk: if you plan to stay in the White House don’t forget your flyswatter.

Return the stolen German gold bullion, stop tapping Merkel’s phone. Then maybe she’ll think you are a friendly nation.

Creepy SOB Obama.

He’d still never treat her as badly as he did Netanyahu. Maybe a little less special than the Muslim Brotherhood, I’d guess though . . . ?

Supposedly Merkel called Bam up and actually cussed him out after she learned he was eaves dropping on her cell phone. I would have done the same thing.

If I were her I would accept Barry’s invitation and tell him to have my gold ready so I could take it back home with me.
