President Barack Obama’s hot-mic moment with French President Nicolas Sarkozy was more embarrassing for the latter than the former, with the French president calling Benjamin Netanyahu a “liar” and Obama only complaining about his daily dealings with the man but that hasn’t stopped Mittens Romney from getting his back up and hissing.
Sarkozy of course didn’t realize his microphone was hot (in today’s world that’s being very naive) during a down moment at the G-20 summit in Cannes, France. “I cannot stand him,” Sarkozy was reported as saying about Netanyahu. “He is a liar.” President Obama responded, “You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him every day!”
Mittens Romney automatically attacked, accusing the president of being “disdainful of [the] U.S.-Israel Relationship.”
“President Obama’s derisive remarks about Israel’s Prime Minister confirm what any observer would have gleaned from his public statements and actions toward our longstanding ally, Israel,” Romney said.
“At a moment when the Jewish state is isolated and under threat, we cannot have an American president who is disdainful of our special relationship with Israel. We have here yet another reason why we need new leadership in the White House.”
Well Mittens, first, when has Israel not been “isolated and under threat” you wind bag; second, because the President doesn’t like Netanyahu doesn’t mean he doesn’t like Israel – plenty of people can’t stand the sight of you but love the Mormon Church, Massachusetts and Michigan. This is a whole lot of much ado about nothing and you need to worry more about Herman Cain right now than about President Obama.
