You Can't Be TOO Careful

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."

Cue the apologies, if not resignations, in 3…2…

UPDATE: Here it is in the original French article…

"Je ne peux plus le voir, c'est un menteur", a lancé Sarkozy. "Tu en as marre de lui, mais moi, je dois traiter avec lui tous les jours !", a rétorqué Obama.

Poor President #Compromise. Always he has it worse than anyone else.

Just like W said, it's HARD bein' president.

And the GOP is going to be ALL over that comment. I think Obama's future chances just took another nose dive.
