Report: Sarkozy calls Netanyahu 'liar' (Obama AGREES, Caught On Open Mic!)
YNET ^ | 11-7-11 | YNET

Posted on 11/07/2011 10:52:07 PM PST by tcrlaf

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.

A member of the media confirmed Monday that "there were discussions between journalists and they agreed not to publish the comments due to the sensitivity of the issue."

Report: Sarkozy calls Netanyahu 'liar'

Microphones accidently left on after G20 meeting pick up private conversation between US, French presidents. Sarkozy admits he 'can't stand' Israeli premier. Obama: You're fed up with him? I have to deal with him every day!

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.

"Translation: Bibi lives in his head."

For the reasons you skillfully imply, but meta-wise, also because Bibi commands the respect that Bobo and Boneapart can only dream about...

Nothing that Bibi didn’t already know I suspect. Most world leaders probably don’t like each other very much. Bibi will laugh it off and worry about more important issues.

What is more surprising: that Obama and Sarkozy hate Netanyahu so much or that the media was totally complicit in covering it up?

Dear Sarkozy and Obama:

You may be surprised to learn that many americans have a great deal more respect for Bibi than for either of you two bozos. In fact, if we were allowed, we would vote for Bibi as our own.

I remember when Jesus’ name/title wasn’t simply an exclamation, especially on a conservative site. Certainly you’re not the only one, and I don’t mean to single you out, but His name is worthy of worship and allowed for entreaty, but was never meant for being used lightly.

I agree. Thank you for stating this.

And just think . . . When the S.O.B. gets re-elected, we’ll have another 4 years during which we cannot sit down without great discomfort because of the giant carbuncle on our national butt from this clown’s constant digging around in our private parts.

The twerp is a suppurating pustule on the face of America, a bleeding ulcer in our collective belly, a dangling hemorrhoid from our trash-dump portal, a pair of missing incisors from our friendly smile, a slimy blot on our continental landscape, a stack of unpaid bills on The People’s desk, a trail of muddy footprints across our parlor carpet, an unflushed toilet in our public latrine, an obscenity in our general discourse, and a nightmare in our communal sleep.

And y’know what . . . I bet this won’t even cost him the big-city Jewish vote. This sumbitch is very likely gonna be re-elected and spend 4 more years embarrassing and bankrupting the place while accomplishing absolutely nothing of positive value, just basking and grinning in the spotlight and frying up our assets in the fat of the land.

What’s even worse is that whenever he leaves office, he’ll join the emeritus ranks and flit around delivering speeches on his wonderful accomplishments and how far he dragged the rednecks kicking and screaming along the progressive path toward the golden city of Kumbaya. He’ll give anti-American commentary a la Carter, and drag in embarrassingly large sums for blathers-kite and balderdash a la Clinton.

He’s going to wind up being a bigger embarrassment than the Edsel, pet rocks, Roseanne, PeeWee Herman, Susan B. Anthony dollar coins, Watergate, and professional “wrestling” combined.

Don't think so. Sarkozy knows that 0, being the narcissist that he is, has no restraint and he baited the snot out of him knowing the mic was on.

He and Carla laughed it up last nite over their fromage and merlot.

Once again though, Bibi looks the statesman and world leader, while Obama looks like a petty narcissistic sociopathic tyrant.

GO BIBI!!

The question is... What was Obama’s remark before Sarkozys’ to prompt that?

"You're fed up with him, but I have to deal with him every day!"

As usual, it's all about him.

Obaba lies as usual...talks to N. every day? Like, really? Every day? Who’s the liar again?

Jews are what I call “stupid smart people” as they seem to have learned nothing from Nazi Germany. Their support of the USA “Democrats” (Socialist Fascist Party) proves thus.
