    The French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, described the Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, as a "liar" in a private exchange with Barack Obama at last week's G20 summit in Cannes that was inadvertently broadcast to journalists.

    "I cannot stand him. He's a liar," Sarkozy told Obama. The US president responded by saying: "You're fed up with him? I have to deal with him every day.":lol:

    I'm sure they do. Everyone gossips about their peers. Sarkozy's statement is stronger than Obama's since it is more explicit and it's first. Obama's is mostly innocuous, but is clearly not a rush to defend him.

    Obama is proving that he supports others who are against the Prime Minister of Israel.

    While both pretend they are not. :eusa_whistle:

    On purpose of gaffe?

    Hard to say...

    You mean he supports the entire world? :lol:

    It must be frustrating as heck dealing with Israel. They spy on thier allies, kill the citizens of allied nations, strike enemies on the sneak without telling anyone and generally are pretty nasty to the leaders of countries allied with them. That, and they don't feel they have to engage in any sort of diplomacy with thier neighbors.

    Netanyahu is even wearing out his "welcome" among Israelis. That's, pretty hard to do.

    More Sallow Logic.

    It's an either or logical question I asked. Either they staged it or it was an accident Sallow.

    Your response has nothing to do with that logical question of mine.

    Truly you are lost with logic.

    If--> Then--> Else has to be supported by facts. :eusa_whistle:

    So, you know how to push the quote button Sallow, but you have no idea how to use and support a logical response to a logical question with only two branches.

    So, truly you are a moron of the nth degree...

    The administration's official response is that the U.S. was much more supportive of Israel than France on the Palestinian statehood proposal in the U.N.

    You quoted me and didn't respond at all to the quote. Then you did it again.

    Special ed classes?

    :clap2:
