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