What Sarko & Bummer were really thinking
So these two slickster politicos get together and accuse Benjamin Netanyahu of lying? What's wrong with this picture?
Obama lies every time he ... (you know this one). Even the Democrats can't listen to him anymore, 'cause they can't keep track of his dizzying flights of fancy. There he goes again!
Bam talks as much as Fidel Castro in his heyday. And for the same reason. He loves to hear himself talk. Nobody's listening, he's just talkin' to himself on TV, and millions of followers try to listen.
What's El Jefe saying now? Dunno, but it sounded great!
Bibi Netanyahu is a survivor in the rough and tumble world of Israeli politics, and my guess is that he's been known to shade the truth once or twice. But Bibi is the only one in this fabulous trio who has risked his life in combat, repeatedly. Ask his buddies if they trust him.
Bibi's brother was the only paratrooper who died at Entebbe. He led from the front.
Who do you trust more, Bibi or Barry O?
Right. Me, too.
In my Carnac the Magnificent way I will now read what they were thinking.
Sarkozy thought bubble:
"I can't figure this guy out. He knocked over Mubarak and now all the Arab regimes are crumbling. He told Israel to commit national suicide.
Is he just aliené (a madman) or what?"
So Sarko tries to get a rise out of the Messiah.
"I can't stand that guy Netanyahu, he's such a menteur terrible..."
Just imagine Sarkozy's Paris taxi driver sneer when he says that.
Bamster thought balloon:
"I need to show this little freak I'm smarter than him."
Says with his million dollar, golden smile:
"Yes, I gotta take that s--t from him every day when we talk on the phone!"
One-upped him with that one.
It's just two poker players trying to fake each other out. This is what they do for a living.
Bamster and Sarko are connoisseurs of the lie, as they say over there. They admire a slick lie like a fine wine or a good cigar. Sarkozy does it because he's a French politician, and Bam because he's learned his art with the Chicago School of Performing Arts. They've always known how to sucker most of the people most of the time, which is why they are where they are.
Charles de Gaulle, who founded Sarko's political party, wrote in his autobiography that he lied so much in political life that half the time he didn't know if he could believe his own words. Politicians go on automatic, like theater actors performing the same show over and over again.
"Did I just say that? Hmmm .... I wonder if I was lying. How can I tell what I mean?"
Gotta check with Valerie and Axelrod.
