Smarter Than the Aaaaverage Bear!

That’s OUR guy on the world stage!

…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.

Thank God we’re free of that gaff-prone Bush, calling people assholes and all that.

You know, Obama really cracks me up bitching about Bibi that way. Now maybe he has a clue how we feel about him.

UPDATE: You were probably wondering why you hadn’t heard about this little kerfluffle. Silly little peoples, why do you think?

…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.”

Of course! It’s what you thought! The mainstream medias was being “sensitives”!

    Wow, and they just took a whooping in New York for anti-Israel intent. Imagine what happens now if the right takes advantage of this.

    The media wasn’t being “sensitive”, they were kissing Obama’s a$$.

    Goodness gracious the Won and Sarko sound like two little girls. Did they also stamp their little feets too. I guess this helps make up for their little spat over the Won indirectly calling Sarko ugly.

    Good Lord. The press couldn’t wait to publicize Reagan’s “We begin bombing in five minutes,” which was a JOKE, and they agree to cover this up. Madness.

    Instapundit is positing that it’s a set-up so they can pretend hands-off when Israel smacks the crap out of Iran.

    I’d say what a sorry day THAT will be when we have to go, “Hey! I can’t control them Israeli whackjobs!” instead of, “You murderous Iranian assholes deserve every f8cking thing you get and MORE, and I wish we’d thought of it first.”

    The campaign ads write themselves here.

    On a larger note – this is not new behavior. The Soviet willfully straved to death millions of their own people, and Walter Duranty won a Pulitzer “reporting” for the Times about how the Soviets were teh awsumms!o!n!e!! The difference is that it takes much less time to pull back the covers on these cover-ups and “gentleman’s agreements.”

    The press does the same thing for the UN. I remember going to the journo’s website once(they have their own website for people covering the UN) and looking at their mission statement. Right there it print it stated that the mission of the UN was so good that they,en masse, had decided not to report the darker side. So if you ever wonder why there is no reporting of the rape squads, etc., now you know the rest of the story.
