Skip to comments.Obama: Bibi is a Pain in the... New book quotes the American president as expressing
Posted on 11/05/2013 8:46:50 PM PST by Nachum
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Barack Obama are not known to have had a good relationship, but the American president seems to have taken it a bit too far.
In a new book that was released Tuesday, Obama is quoted as expressing what he really thinks about Netanyahu during his 2012 presidential campaign.
According to the book, Double Down, Obama said that "We all know Bibi Netanyahu is a pain in the a**" when discussing the conflict between the Israelis and the Arabs.
"Double Down" was written by MSNBC correspondents Mark Halperin and John Heilemann and it reveals behind-the-scenes political stories from the American presidential race in 2012.
The quote about Netanyahu by Obama, which was reportedly made during a meeting between the President and his aides a year before the elections, is the only time Israel is mentioned in the book.
Relations between Obama and Netanyahu were strained during Obama's first term, with supporters of Obama accusing Netanyahu of interfering in the U.S. election in favor of Obama's rival, Mitt Romney. Supporters of Netanyahu, meanwhile, accused Obama of trying to keep Netanyahu from being reelected last January.

Thank you kindly for making me fall off my chair from laughing so hard. ROFL.
I wish Bibi was our President.
I would suggest something more explosive than Preparation H!!
Actually, I was thinking more along those lines myself. Got to watch how you phrase things these days.

Isn't MSNBC antisemitic? Maybe the quote's in the book because the writers agree with it... Do you know? I don't...
I would love to know all the things Bibi has called Obama in private.
Glad to help.
Sorry for my salty language
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Our President understands some Jews just don't know their place.
OMG! I LOVE it!
You have enriched my Weltungshung with your Erudite Colloquialism Today!
Thank You! :-)
Apparently Bath House Barry, the chickenhawk from Nairobi, doesn’t know what happens to evildoers who mess with God’s People.
Glad i could put a smile on ya with a turn of the tounge
Besides being one heck of a statesman, I have always found Bibi a sexy guy. OK flame away but I know for a fact that I am not the only woman that thinks that.
It is crystal clear as spelled out in the Bible but he either thinks it is not true or he doesn’t care. Either way, he will be dealt with.
Let's turn it around.
Well, B. Hussein O., what if Israel were US ally (what if, Hussein...!) and US needed Israeli protection, or dire assistance for survival, and Netanyahu was recorded saying you were a pain in the ass.
I'd like to know your response, Mr. Big Britches. Just remember who you insult on your way up when you are on the way down, so to speak.
A world of difference.....and we got the short end.
True - my nephews, ages 11 and 13 speak more elegantly - with a far more cogent use of the English language than B. Hussein O.
BHO lowers the bar again.
You are correct - you are not the only woman who thinks that!
I was let down when I heard he had had a sexual indiscretion. Bummer.
Still, he is one sexy fellow. Maybe that contributed to the indiscretion - being like a rock star in the political arena. Netanyahu groupies everywhere.
Not excusing him - just excusing him. <8^)
No flames from this quarter.
