Just how much do the Internet’s conservatives support Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who gave a “partisan” speech to Congress Tuesday?

They go much farther than just using the Twitter hashtag #IStandWithBibi.

For many on the far right, taking sides on the issue of whether Netanyahu should even be speaking at Capitol Hill has more to do with being anti-President Obama than it does being pro-Israel.

Using Twitter, they’ve made one thing clear: they really, really wish Netanyahu would extend his Washington trip for about, say, four to eight years.

Ironically, the beginning of Obama’s presidency was filled with accusations from the far right questioning his American citizenship. For some, the idea of having a foreigner president isn’t such a bad idea after all.
