When did Benjamin Netanyahu become an unimpeachable source?

Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu


This story from Cheetoville is making the rounds thanks to the usual suspects:

Netanyahu: Romney Lying About Their Friendship

Bibi Netanyahu told Vanity Fair

“I remember him [Romney] for sure, but I don’t think we had any particular connections, I knew him and he knew me, I suppose.”

~Bibi Netanyahu, July 2012 in Vanity Fair Interview, (middle of Page 4)

But, to hear the pathological liar, Mitt Romney, tell it the two were as thick as thieves (no pun intended) while they both worked at Bain Consulting Group in the 1970s (not to be confused with Bain Capital.)

Romney to the New York Times:

ROMNEY: “We [Mitt & Netanyahu] can almost speak in shorthand. We share common experiences and have a perspective and underpinning which is similar.”

[…]

In April 2012, Romney said:

ROMNEY: “Israel’s current prime minister is not just a friend, he’s an old friend”

Romney has touted his ‘friendship’ with Netanyahu as being “nurtured through meals in Boston, New York and Jerusalem.”

Look, it’s no surprise that Romney is a pathological liar and is lying about his “friendship” with Bibi to garner the Jewish vote — duh — But I would urge all my Jewish friends to remember that no one, of any religion or non-religion, can believe a thing that comes out of Romney’s mouth because he lies like a smelly old, nasty rug.


Romney must be lying because the two men have differing accounts. It couldn’t be Netanyahu that is misremembering things from 30-40 years ago. It’s also not possible that the two men had different perceptions of the closeness of their friendship.

What is most amusing about this nothingburger is that a statement by Benjamin Netanyahu on just about any other subject would be greeted with skepticism from Progworld. He disagrees with Mitt Romney and suddenly he’s an unimpeachable source.

This is really weak sauce.


BTW: This post is not intended to bash Netanyahu or the nation of Israel. I just wanted to highlight the hypocrisy of the progressives.

    Wait until we see if Israel bombs Iran. I’m sure the Cheetos will stand behind Bibi.

  2. jeffhas says:

    That’s called ’embellishment’… He would have been lying if they’d actually never met.

    I love that this is ALL they have?… That this is the BEST they have…

    They have to know they are screwed.

    • myiq2xu says:

      I wouldn’t even call it embellishment.

    • Lizzy says:

      But hey we ALL know Romney is a pathological liar! He can’t possibly be telling the truth. What high public offical do we know whose moving mouth always denotes a lie? bho. Perhaps it isn’t advisable to comment on someone’s veracity when you support Obams.

  3. angienc says:

    More Obot projection — Romney is the most secretive candidate evah! Romney will say anything to get elected. Now Romney is a pathological liar

    Jesus Christ, every day really *is* opposite day in Obamaland.

  4. Weak sauce indeed. When are we going to hear a comparison on policy prescriptions. I really could care less if the man won a Frisbee throwing competition 40 years ago or whatever. These distractions really look desperate. Let the President run on his record. Period. I believe it was General Wesley Clark who said “If you want to know what someone is going to do, take a look at what they’ve done.”

  5. Anthony says:

    After a whole day of MSNBC bashing Romney and his “shocking, un-Presidential, insulting faux-pas”, I’m not surprised.

    Maybe he should’ve brought a couple of iPods? or a few unplayable DVD’s? Or asked Ann to squeeze a tool belt over an ill-fitting cardigan? Who knows…..

  6. Lulu says:

    I remember reading another guy that worked there at the same time said they were rivals. Not unfriendly but definitely rivals. Then Netanyahu left to do his thing and Romney stayed and eventually run the place and makes lots of money. Since Romney ran the place for a significant time I think he views everyone who he worked with as his friend and colleague. Netanyahu may not have the same fond memories of success.

    Obama: “Bill Ayers? He’s just a guy in the neighborhood”.

  8. votermom says:

    Wait wait wait – the horrible eviiil Bain Capital has already produced one head of state who has, incidentally, already publicly schooled Obama?

    Remind me -why exactly is Mitt’s Bain experience supposed to make him unelectable?

  9. votermom says:

    OT Sarah tweets a pic of her & Todd in Chick-Fil-A

    • SophieCT says:

      This is good?

      • angienc says:

        If you think the government should grant permits to businesses and/or “warn” businesses not to “come to their city,” based on the CEO’s religious views, then no, it’s not good.

        Of course, that means you don’t have much use for the First Amendment either. To each his own.

        • SophieCT says:

          How the heck did you read all of that into what I wrote. I don’t think that at all which is why I didn’t write it.

          • myiq2xu says:

            Angie spends a lot of time in the front lines dealing with Obots. Sometimes she’s a little quick on the draw. She kinda reminds me of Animal Mother (but smarter and better looking)

        • myiq2xu says:

          The whole nontroversy seems to have fizzled. They didn’t get the reaction they were hoping for.

        • angienc says:

          Thank, myiq — but I wasn’t quick on the draw at all. SophieCT can deny it all she wants but it is pretty clear what her question “This is good?” meant to anyone who hasn’t been under a rock for the last few days.

        • angienc says:

          BTW, the actor who played Animal Mother is on Twitter — he’s a conservative & he’s hilarious fighting Obots @adamsbaldwin

          (No relations to Alec Baldwin).

        • SophieCT says:

          Oh Angie, FCS.

          What I do think is that if Chick-fil-A wanted to stay out of the fray, they shouldn’t have made statements that put them dead into the center of the fray. Should gay people just turn the other cheek? Obviously, they didn’t mean we shouldn’t eat there, just that we shouldn’t have the same rights everyone else has. So, I have to wonder, if people (like Sarah) make a point of going there in the midst of the fray, is she in fact declaring that she is also against gay marriage? Even if she wasn’t, her followers would interpret it that way. When people applaud that, it is hardly something I can describe as good. YMMV.

        • angienc says:

          First, you’re basically admitting, contrary to your denial above, that you *did* mean “all that” so I’m not crazy for thinking it (as you implied). Thanks for that, at least.

          Second, FCS the views of the CEO of Chick-Fil-A have been known for a LONG time — since the beginning of when the restaurants first opened & were closed on Sunday. The Left *created* this recent fray. Point.Blank.Period. Denying that is denying what actually happened — which I refuse to do just because I personally support SSM.

          Third, get over yourself. If *people* don’t want to give Chick-Fil-A their business because of the CEO’s religious views (the same views, btw, that Obama held as of 6 months ago) that’s fine. We all — as individuals — have the right to decide what businesses to patronize based on whatever criteria we want. I *never* implied otherwise. But when city mayors & other government officials start talking big about Chick-Fil-A not being “welcome” in their cities, that’s a bunch of horseshit that has *absolutely nothing* to do with SSM or gay rights. Because as I said, if you think that it is OK for government officials to decide who gets permits, etc based on religious views then the views of the Chick-Fil-A CEO is the *least* of your problems.

        • SophieCT says:

          Yeah Angie, I can see how wanting full rights as a human being and a citizen of this country means I’m against the First Amendment. Gosh, it’s so obvious–I can’t believe I didn’t see it.

          • angienc says:

            Yeah, that’s EXACTLY what I said. I don’t know if you are being purposefully obtuse or if you actually are too self-centered to separate yourself from the issue of SSM to recognize — for the umpteenthed time — that the GOVERNMENT telling a business it isn’t welcome in a certain city based on the CEO’s religious views is so wrong that ALL of us should be against that action regardless of our views on SSM or any other issue. And, that includes YOU as a gay person. Like I said: if you either can’t or refuse to “get” that, you’ve got bigger problems than the CEO’s of Chick-Fil-A’s religious views.

            And, btw, your surprise in your post above to find out that Sarah Palin is against SSM is beneath you. But, FTR, it is quite obvious that she went to a Chick-Fil-A today *because* of the ridiculous stances taken by the SF, Boston & Chicago mayors, not specifically about the issue of SSM (i.e, to say “look at me! I’m against SSM”). The actions of the Boston, Chicago & SF mayors have taken this far beyond the issue of SSM. Of course, seeing how you are too self-centered to even ACKNOWLEDGE that any other issue exists, you probably will just continue to deny it & make this all about YOUR right to be a ‘human being” — because we all know that hinges on the religious views of the Chick-Fil-A CEO.

        • SophieCT says:

          Angie, I don’t want the government to shut them down. I didn’t say it and I didn’t think it. Not that you care what I think because you already decided what I think, and quite possibly every thought I ever had.

        • angienc says:

          Seriously, Sophie, you’re just embarrassing yourself now.

          Next you’ll tell me “I know you are but what am I.”

          I’m done having any kind of interaction with you because this is the THIRD time you have purposefully misconstrued what I wrote to pretend that I’m the one misconstruing yours.

        • Some people are eating at CFA and making a point about it because of the FA thing Angie mentioned, and because most CFAs are franchised, meaning they are owned by locals who may or may not agree with Cathy on gay marriage. They lose business when politicians play fast and loose with the law to score political points.

          IMO, gay rights as they relate to boycotting businesses shouldn’t even be a political consideration. It should be a moral one. I’ve not eaten at CFA in over 10 years because I was aware and I care where my dollars go and what they support. But I laugh my butt off at these newbies on the train because they are falling for marketing when they didn’t care before. Or were ignorant, which says a lot about how much they pay attention, or how many actual gay people they have in their lives. I call them t-shirt slogan activists, and it’s a pretty shallow commitment if they are just now finding out.

      • catarina says:

        Mayor Thomas Menino is an Obot and a fascist bully control freak.
        Mean, dumb, and re-elected over and over by his army of union goons.

        He already has way too much power when it comes to who gets to do what in the City of Boston.

        I’ll go to Chick-Fil-A on Wednesday for the buycott, because I live in MA and Mayor Menino does not speak for me.

        Since exactly fucking when does a business have to endorse gay marriage to get an operating license in the United States of America?

        Plus, what Angie and Lola said.

        • catarina says:

          PS Should have just said, Im going to Chick-Fil-A because I hate fascism. Has nothing to do with gay marriage, which I support.

    • tommy says:

      The Palins are having fun.

  10. DM says:

    It’s a plus that Netanyahu sees Romney as just an acquaintance. No president should have too close a relationship with a leader of another nation. It’s better if the president of the U.S. knows that other nations are looking after their interests, not the U.S.

  11. yttik says:

    LOL, wait! They forgot the next paragraph which is how Netanyahu feels about Obama:

    “Netanyahu’s encounters with President Obama have been marked by slights, misunderstandings, mutual suspicion, and downright distaste. One Obama aide says they keep hearing Netanyahu has evolved but have yet to see any signs of it. At home, Netanyahu scores points with his every slight of Obama, to whom the Israelis have never warmed.”

  12. Erica says:

    This article makes the relationship sound a bit different than the foaming at the mouth comments from Cheetoville do:
    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/08/us/politics/mitt-romney-and-benjamin-netanyahu-are-old-friends.html?pagewanted=all

    And this one points to Netanyahu maintaining neutrality during our election process:

  13. tommy says:

    To the progs, Netanyahu is a war-mongering ZOMG neo-con. Now suddenly the dude has credibility. Lol

  14. Erica says:

    OT: watching the opening ceremony of the Olympics, incredible, and somehow honors the people who built and transformed the country. Don’t tell them they didn’t build that! And the Queen, well, she rocks!

    Today I saw a little girl for a check-up. She’s having her first swim meet tomorrow morning and told me with great confidence, “I’m going to the Olympics!” And I said, “with that attitude, I don’t doubt it!”

      Always encourage kids to go for their dreams. Maybe they won’t make it but they’ll never get anywhere if they don’t try.

      I had a step-father who told me I didn’t have what it takes to become a lawyer. He said he was just being realistic.

  15. myiq2xu says:

  16. myiq2xu says:

    Now this here is what you call an opening ceremony:

    • soupcity says:

      Awesome. The ceremonies last night were kinda pathetic. By the time they set up the giant baby on the field, my daughter and I were howling. No one will ever measure up to Beijing, I fear.

    • leslie says:

      thank you for posting this. i never saw the Beijing opening ceremony. In fact, I haven’t seen the opening ceremony in any of the last 20 years. So this was wonderful.
      I did watch the replay of the London opning ceremony and was a little disappointed. Expecially after seeing this. But the lighting of the “torch” and the fireworks were stunning. Unfortunately, the inclusion of Wir Paul was a big mistake. (as angienc or someone said earlier.)

  17. “lie…lie…liar…lie…lie…liar.” This is the oldest trick in the Obama playbook. Everybody who might possibly best him in anything is a lying liar. I can’t wait until the tell-all books come after he’s out of office. I bet the people working for him can’t stand him either.

    I’ve started making lists of things Obama has lied about and dropping it into comments with accusations that he’s a liar, because he is, and it needs to be known.

    • myiq2xu says:

      Ironically, it’s when he occasionally tells the truth that his followers don’t believe him.

      • myiq2xu says:

        I almost forgot – how are you feeling?

        • I’m feeling pretty good. It was hell, because apparently I have curved roots on my teeth, so it was some work for my dentist to get them out. But he and I were both troopers and we made it through. I love the guy. We trade key commands and coding tricks because we’re both computer geeks. Heh.

          Anyway, the Vicodin is doing its work, and I just rested today and finished watching the rest of season 4 of Breaking Bad. What a finale! Now just two more episodes of season 5 tomorrow and I’m all caught up. I’ll be able to participate in the Sunday night thread, assuming there’s one this week.

          Thanks for asking!

          • myiq2xu says:

            I had 3 wisdom teeth pulled in one day when I was in the army. The painkillers work better if you wash them down with alcohol.

            Take care of yourself.
