"I can't stand him. He's a liar," Sarkozy said of Netanyahu, according to CNN.
Obama replied, "You're tired of him; what about me? I have to deal with him every day.”
In an off-mic situation, Obama and Sarkozy are discovered not to trust Netanyahu, and Sarkozy went so far as to call him a liar. Not only did Obama refuse to defend him, but chimed in by saying he has to "deal" with the Israeli prime minister every day.
The disdain of these two world leaders for their ally was apparent. It is also apparent that the president's support of Israel publicly is only a facade.
I truly hope the American people are taking serious notes now that they have finally seen our president's true feelings about Israel and the fact that the uneasiness that has been created since Obama's tenure is deep-seated and very personal.
So Obama can continue to give hollow speeches trying to ease the concerns of his Jewish constituency, but alas the dirty laundry is out in the open for everyone to see and finally understand.
Amazingly, or perhaps not, the mainstream media barely reported the story, and yet if it were a Republican president causing such a gaffe it would have been front-page headlines for quite some time.
What does it mean when our president joined in the denigration of one of our most trusted traditional allies? What does it tell us when the mainstream media glosses over the story?
It means that people need to learn to think for themselves and not trust a jaded media that, instead of reporting the news, manipulates every situation to fit their agenda.
