Obama Agrees That Netanyahu Is A Problem

From an annoyed (that this came out) Reuters:

Sarkozy tells Obama Netanyahu is a "liar"

PARIS (Reuters) – French President Nicolas Sarkozy branded Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "a liar" in a private conversation with U.S. President Barack Obama that was accidentally broadcast to journalists during last week’s G20 summit in Cannes.

"I cannot bear Netanyahu, he’s a liar," Sarkozy told Obama, unaware that the microphones in their meeting room had been switched on, enabling reporters in a separate location to listen in to a simultaneous translation.

"You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him even more often than you," Obama replied, according to the French interpreter.

This should make a great campaign ad, come next fall. That is, if Israel still exists. (By the way, how much longer will that interpreter have a job?)

The technical gaffe is likely to cause great embarrassment to all three leaders as they look to work together to intensify international pressure on Iran over its nuclear ambitions.

Why has Obama ever been truly serious about pressuring Iran over its nuclear weapons program? Or France, either, for that matter?

The conversation was not initially reported by the small group of journalists who overheard it because it was considered private and off-the-record. But the comments have since emerged on French websites and can be confirmed by Reuters.

In other words, the world’s news media tried to cover for Obama. But it came out despite them.

Obama’s apparent failure to defend Netanyahu is likely to be leapt on by his Republican foes, who are looking to unseat him in next year’s presidential election and have portrayed him as hostile to Israel, Washington’s closest ally in the region

Those evil Republicans will just seize on anything, no matter how innocuous.

They are so damn partisan.

    Heard today on talk radio, sorry I can’t remember which host said this,(Think it was Bortz) but the comment was to the effect that Jews will still vote for Obama, no matter how bad it turns out for them.

    Then the comment was made by a Russian Jewish woman caller, who has been in America for a long while now and said that all the Russian Jews in her circle would NOT vote for him. They have lived it under the communism and recognize it when they see it again.

    The thought evolved that it would be American born Jews of whom many are clueless and will vote for Obalmy like brain dead Dems. But Russian Jews and other Jews from other communist countries see him for what he is.

    Makes sense to me. Many Jews from NYC and other lib areas seem to buy into the victim “gimme” routine.

    My wonder is how they can watch the way Obalmy is shafting Israel and being so supportive to the Arab counties? Can’t they SEE?

    Makes me so sad to see people not stand behind their own…especially when their own are being ‘beat up’ by punks and bullies who surround them.

    Long live Israel and I’m praying the Lib Jews wake up before its too late for them…and us. Obalmy would shove them under the bus at his first opportunity!

    There’s so many people under that bus, it will soon qualify to be named as a mountain.

      This will be a serious test of Jewish integrity. It’s been said by Jews that, “The worst anti-Semitism is committed by Jews against Jews.”

      All during the Iranian nuclear weapons buildup, the Democrat/progressive/crypto-Marxists have attacked every person who blew the whistle on it. The Jewish vote empowers these despicable traitors to the Western Tradition.

      If the Jews don’t abandon Obummer and the ‘progressives’ in droves, what else can we say about them other than “They reaped what they sowed”.

    Yes, and I seem to recall GWB being given the same consideration when he made his “Hezbollah’s gotta stop this sh*t” remark near a live mike -oh wait…

    Let’s get this right. “WE” have a creampuff, wrapped in a pantie-waist, surrounded by left-fisted anachronism.
    Mr. Netanyahu is 180 degrees polar opposite. He would have his people and country, “without” capitulation or compromise, 100% FREE. We are fighting against the same things here. Evil. So, On Israel, On America. I’d also say “On Wisconsin” but that would be “badgering” you. If we don’t support Israel, we are proping up Iran.

    (steam coming out of ears)

    Almighty God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Lord God Creator of all there is, the God who calls Israel His …. will defend His people and destroy those who seek to make a mockery of Him, His Everlasting Covenant and threaten His Own.

    Yeah,yeah, yeah. Blame the Jew. Wouldn’t be the first time…

    With a friend like Obama in the Whitehouse, who needs enemies?!

  7. David says:

    Perhaps Obama was being considerate? This clip could be great for the Prime Minister’s party election campaigns!
    An unreliable ally is more dangerous than a determined enemy.
