Israel "diss": The not ready for prime time President is at it again at the G-20!

"Jews supporting Obama need to ask themselves a question: Why?"

This article headline appeared in TPC back in March 2010 when questions arose over the treatment of Benjamin Netanyahu during a visit to the White House.

Treated as the proverbial "red-headed step-child" the Israeli Prime Minister was offered none of the pageantry typically offered to foreign heads of state visiting the President of the United States.

No state dinner and in fact the President left the PM of Israel alone for an extended period to go and have dinner with Michelle and the kids.

That's no way to treat the leader of a country, particularly one that last I checked was reportedly supposed to be our friend and strong ally.

Would the leader of any other country have been treated with such little respect by President Obama?

The question posed at that time was how any Jews could vote for a man whose past included ties to anti-Jewish figure Louis Farrakhan (through Reverend Jeremiah Wright) and who through his actions (not his carefully chosen words although he did mention a move back to the 1967 borders) is obviously not a very good friend of the Jewish State.

And now this exchange between Nicolas Sarkozy and President Obama at the G-20!

Two of Israel's supposed staunch allies had this exchange at the G-20, overheard through the good fortune of a technical failure of some microphones. Those reporters who heard it were of course then asked to refrain from reporting it although one did.

So the question is whether on top of all of his other obvious shortcomings, this President deserves your vote the second time around in the 2012 election (that is if you voted for his the first time)?

You make the call!

"... According to a report posted Monday on the French Web site Arret sur Images, the exchange between Mr. Obama and Mr. Sarkozy was picked up by open microphones and overheard by half a dozen French journalists, who were still wearing headsets they had put on to hear simultaneous translation of Mr. Obama’s public remarks.

Mr. Obama, the Web site said, began by chiding Mr. Sarkozy for not warning him that France would vote to admit the Palestinians into UNESCO, a step the United States opposed. From there, the two men began discussing the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.

“I cannot stand him,” Mr. Sarkozy was quoted as saying. “He is a liar.”

Mr. Obama is reported to have replied, “You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him every day...” (Source)
