Obama Trashes Israeli Leader Netanyahu to Sarkozy: “You’re Fed Up With Him… But I Have to DEAL WITH HIM Every Day”

French and American Leaders Tell Press Promise Not to Report the Story–
It took three days for it to come out!

Barack Obama and French President Nicolas Sarkozy trashed Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu this past weekend at the G20 meetings.
YNet News reported:

French President Nicolas Sarkozy reportedly told US President Barack Obama that he could not “stand” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and that he thinks the Israeli premier “is a liar.”

According to a Monday report in the French website “Arret sur Images,” after facing reporters for a G20 press conference on Thursday, the two presidents retired to a private room, to further discuss the matters of the day.

The conversation apparently began with President Obama criticizing Sarkozy for not having warned him that France would be voting in favor of the Palestinian membership bid in UNESCO despite Washington’s strong objection to the move.

The conversation then drifted to Netanyahu, at which time Sarkozy declared: “I cannot stand him. He is a liar.” According to the report, Obama replied: “You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him every day!”

The remark was naturally meant to be said in confidence, but the two leaders’ microphones were accidently left on, making the would-be private comment embarrassingly public.

The communication faux pas went unnoticed for several minutes, during which the conversation between the two heads of state – which quickly reverted to other matters – was all but open to members the press, who were still in possession of headsets provided by the Elysée for the sake of simultaneous translation during the G20 press conference.

“By the time the (media) services at the Elysée realize it, it was on for at least three minutes,” one journalist told the website. Still, he said that reporters “did not have a chance to take advantage of this fluke.”

The surprising lack of coverage may be explained by a report alleging that reporters present at the event were requested to sign an agreement to keep mum on the subject of the embarrassing comments.

And the press gladly went along with the cover-up.

    Here’s the real difference between Netanyahu and the Fraud in the WH:

    Comrade Barry and Sarko are themselves two despicable liars. Both will go down in infamy.

  • myohmy

    Thank God. We are back at the real story of today. That Obama is a failed president and Europe is bankrupt. Look at China trashing European for being slot and indolent.

    “You’re Fed Up With Him… But I Have to DEAL WITH HIM Every Day”

    Took the very words out of my mouth, except the object of my referenced “him” is the mulatto in the White House.

    And it strikes me that the principled members of Congress could also be uttering those same words.

    BTW, I don’t believe for a NY second that BHO deals with Bibi every day!

    Even with the elevator shoes, Sarkozy couldn’t carry Netanyahu’s jockstrap.

  • Sarkozy ought to hear what he thinks about him……

  • If Sarkosy really did say what Obama quotes him, I am surprised and dissapointed regarding Sarkosy, I had thought that he would know a bit more about diplomacy and good statesmanship ; but with Obama ,well, the wait for Jan 21 2013 seems long indeed.

    Sarkozy set him up. The classless opinko shows his traderous true colors.

  • FurryGuy

    Just how long will it take to repair the damage to our international relations when Barry gets voted out of office in 2012? With all of his blundering and foot-in-mouth ramblings so far and the long year ahead we may be as ostracized for a long, long time.

  • Epsilon

    Big deal. Obama was scolding Sarkozy for voting for Palestinian membership in UNESCO. Obama pointed out that regardless of Sarkozy’s opinion of Netanyahu, he still has to “deal with Netanyahu every day” (and therefore cannot adopt such an attitude like Sarkozy’s).

    In other words…Obama has to deal with the fallout.

    Without hearing the actually audio, you can’t assume the tone. Choosing to capital letters and
    an exclamation point is just your way of making it sound far more inflammatory than it may have been.

    Didja miss the part that said “despite Washington’s strong objection to the move (to make Palestine a member of UNESCO)?”

    Y’know, we expect this from the French – what with them being historically anti-semitic, soft on terror and Nazi collaborators. But for the American president to bitch about the Israeli leader? Disgusting. Granted, I’m not surprised in the manner he did so – behind the man’s back and while thinking no one else was listening. And granted, Obama is historically anti-semitic and soft on terror, but this is ridiculous.

    “BTW, I don’t believe for a NY second that BHO deals with Bibi every day!”

    Yeah. If he did, he’d bitch more often cause everyone knows Bibi doesn’t take any of his crap. Yet another reason why Israel rocks.

    “And how would Herman Cain be a worse President?”

    How would ANYONE be a worse President?

    That’s just too bad, barry boy. The American people bear the distasteful burden of hearing your narcissistic delusions on a daily basis. To say nothing of suffering from the continuing economic ravages of your socialist nonsense exacerbated by the flying cow’s exorbitant lifestyle

    Netanyahu will tell fewer lies in a lifetime than Comrade Zero manages in a day while exhibiting more principle and intestinal fortitude in a few seconds than Zippy will ever muster in aggregate. I’d never insult the people of Israel by offering them 0bozo in exchange for Bibi, but I’d throw in some boot if they would take 0bowma in exchange for a trained flea.

    It is amazing how inept this sphincter really is. The more the MSM covers up for him the more he steps in it. I think we all need another reminder of “how smart he is” from that same media.

    You realize that when you refer to BHO as a “mulatto” you give ammunition to those that call conservatives racist. There are plenty of legitimate things to criticize the president for without bringing race into the equation.

  • Joe College

    Maybe when he lost that special election for Weiner’s seat Obama decided to turn on the Jews. I suspect he wants to blame them for the problems he has caused. Obama seems to be sending just that signal to his supporters. We now see the OWS left marching against Israel in an organized fashion. It is becoming a movement.

    Traditionally, a pathetic little authoritarian like him would blame the Jews for his own failings. Maybe that’s Sarko’s story, too. I would have thought better of him.

    #11 – episilon – if Obama was really playing Henry Kissinger in this dialogue – don’t you think the White House would have released the actual audio tape to prove that? The fact that they haven’t done so proves that Obama was, in fact, likewise trashing Netanyahu – like most rational and objective people already can surmise.

  • BurmaShave

    Obama to Sarkozy: “You’re Fed Up with [Israeli Leader Netanyahu] … But I Have to DEAL WITH HIM Every Day”

    Pity Netanyahu; he has to deal with [two-faced] Obama every day. And as we know, THAT IS A REAL TRIAL.

  • Tyranny’s Bain

    Make no mistake, this was no accident. It was a “message” to Netanyahu.

    We are living in perilous times.

  • progressoverpeace

    Tyranny’s Bain commented:

    Make no mistake, this was no accident. It was a “message” to Netanyahu.

    This was an accident, but Barky couldn’t care less. Anything that might injure the US and Israel’s relationship is what he’s been looking for. His hate of Israel hasn’t been a secret. His initial foreign policy was to blame everything on Israel building apartments in Jerusalem – which his national retard in charge of something called “Al Quds”! Yep.

    Barky is exactly who and what many of us have been saying he is for over 3 years, now. This is why Netanyahu never should have bothered visiting Washington while such an enemy of Western civilization was in charge, there. There was nothing to be gained by it.

  • Joe College

    Tyranny’s Bain, I think it might be on purpose too. It’s too much like his recent jew/janitor gaffe. As I said above, I think he is positioning to blame the Jews for the problems he himself creates. There is a strong undercurrent of that in OWS.

    What he is doing with these ‘gaffes’ is getting out the message to his supporters.

    For Obama, this is normal considering the sermons he listened to for 22 years in that church, as well as his upbringing and education in Indonesia I suppose.

    The pivot point for his turn on the Jews was the special election for Weiner’s seat which they lost. Obama probably figures the Jews aren’t doing him any good anymore so he might as well use them as scapegoats for his failed policies.

  • gus

    Accident or not, why would ANY COUNTRY be our ALLY when they hear sh!t like this??
    Obama is an amateur. Other nations know this.

  • jainphx

    More and more every day I find that I hate this guy. Hate for a guy that goes out of his way to walk all over his country and our best ally, and don’t tell me he doesn’t do all this on purpose. Medved a supposed conservative Jew, goes out of his way to say Obama’s policies are wrong, but NOT on purpose. Even with all the evidence of his anti Israel policies, the most conservative of our Jewish brothers can’t see him for what he is.

  • gus

    Obama was raised Muzzlim. He loved the very Father who abandoned him and his mother.

  • American Woman

    Liz, I agree.

    We actually need a POTUS like Netanyahu. Someone, who loves his country and would be willing to die in defense of it. Unfortunately, we ended up with a Marxist liar, who plays footsies with the Muslim Brotherhood and al-Queda.

  • Dr. Aharon Liebersohn. Author of “world wide agora”

    Who cares what they think on Netanyahu! They don’t like a strong Israeli leader that is more capable and intelligent than they are. And acts according to Israel’s Interests. They are used to boot licking Israeli leaders.

  • gus

    Dr. Aharon. No offense sir, but Obama isn’t used to anything but being “given” too. He hates Israel, because he has been raised and schooled and indoctrinated by Anti-Semites. AND, he is a CULTURAL MUZZTARD with SEVERE…..DADDY ISSUES.

    He hates Israel and Netanyahu SCARES HIM.

  • Do we expect better from the foreigner Hussein bin Obama?

    ‘Insider: We have an administration directly responsible for the killing of hundreds of civilians in Mexico. The killing of our own border agents. The wasting of billions of taxpayer dollars that went back into the hands of Obama campaign donors. A Justice Department that dismissed a clearly proven voter intimidation case – that was on record declaring its intent to ignore race-based crimes where Whites were the victims. The shutting down of energy production industries in the Gulf – only to turn around and allow other nations the right to drill our oil. This president allows Middle East nations that were once at least somewhat cooperative with the interests of the United States to be over-run by Muslim extremists – and they call that kind of thing a fu—ing victory for the administration! Talk about your “Mission Accomplished” moment! This president golfs more than he governs. He doesn’t meet with his own cabinet. There’s people in that administration who have never spoken to the man! When he is at the White House he sits up in that second floor room of his watching TV and waiting for the next batch of orders to come to him from Jarrett. A president that embraces radicalized union-backed protesters calling for socialism, who destory property and rape the weak. He has repeatedly pissed off Democrats and Republicans at every turn. Every fu—ing turn. At every fu—ing level. This guy has sh-t on the office. Sh-t on the responsibility. Sh-t on the history and tradition of the office that he, by some tragic accident of which I personally played a part it – now occupies.

    So I ask you – you seem to think I got all the answers – so I ask you…HOW THE FU-K DOES THAT HAPPEN? HOW DOES IT CONTINUE TO HAPPEN? Because I don’t know. I’ve seen it. I’ve done it – just about all there is to do in this town…and I don’t know how it’s happening.’

    Is any further proof needed of how biased and corrupt the leftist media is? The way they toady to their paymasters is immoral and shameful.

    Sarkozy is a typical french collaborator…..still sucking up to the germans.

  • Most of you are idiots…

    Many of these posts here are idiotic. Disagreeing with Israeli foreign policy does not make an individual antisemetic.

    There is a war going on in Israel. In the last decade, many Palestinians have died in comparison to few Israelis. Yet somehow Israel is losing this war, and badly. This is because they are not fighting a conventional war – they are fighting a PR war. If Israeli politicians do not wake up to this fact the country will eventually alienate itself completely.

    You idiots need to learn that it does matter what the rest of the world thinks.

  • Robert Lansley

    Read between the lines always. Comments out of context are always misconstude! Wake up to reality insofar as all Politicians do not and never have relayed all the truth to the people who elected them. Olbama may not have produced good results but the fact remains he was elected under your democratic system.
    As for the Middle East problem I think is is fair to say that most people throughout the world are fed up with Israels stance, with the exception of Isreal and it,s people of course.
    There is a wider picture to consider throughout the world other than the needs of the few with their own personal interests at stake.
    If there is a GOD then he must see all that goes on in his name and how the world is an unsafe place due to prevailing racism, albiet disguised. It is good that the world is not run by rascist minded people.

    Thanks for yet another demonstration of what passes for ‘progressive thought’ from the typical liberal. This Republic will be so much better when you, Comrade Zippy & the rest of your crowd are repatriated to your natural environment, squatting in some sandy Turdistan mud village picking over the garbage heaps.

    I am vegetarian. I am a Jewish atheist. I am ok with high tax rates, even though that means less money for me. I am ok with people getting healthcare at hospitals and not having to pay for it if they can’t afford it. Yes, I am liberal.

    What am I not? Pro war or Religious. #55 is exactly that. Although the idea of left wing and right wing are now entirely relevant to the context you discuss them in, most rational Americans would group pro war religious people on the right side of the spectrum. #55 is just like any hardline right winger born in America, the only difference being the origin his views are aligned to. Your underlying ideas are the same, there is just a different nationality behind them.

    @ 60 Fail, Nazi’s were and are socialists, you and other libs call them right wing to deflect the shear hatred and intolerance of the left. Jewish hatred has been a majority view of the left since the left began

    NAZI = National Socialist Party remember? So please stop trying to pin that particualr ideology on the right.

    Also most religious people are not are NOT pro war, nice straw man their you made. Most view war as a last resort and understand the concept via a premise known as righteous anger. For example Jesus had a righteous anger and vented it upon the moneychangers in the synagogue.

    War fought in righteous anger for the purpose of freeing an enslaved people or removing a genocidal maniac is not an inherent evil.

  • Hobbitually conservative

    “many Palestinians have died in comparison to few Israelis.”

    You didn’t clarify whether these Palestinians died as a result of unprovoked attacks, defensive responses of Palestinian attacks, natural causes, or even perhaps honor killings.

    We do know that the Palestinians are kind of partial to blowing up buses, stores and stuff in Israel, so how much of the death do they bring upon themselves (to kill a few of your brothers, and then soak up all the sympathy when Israel responds)? Just wonderin’?

    Sarkozy says the Israeli PM is a liar, which probably means the PM said something about him that is true, and he doesn’t want Obama to believe it is true – one liar to another.
