Open mic night at the G-20 summit yields a big surprise

The G-20 Summit in Cannes, France was a smashing success. Things went well despite Obama telling some really bad jokes about Nicolas Sarkozy's less-than-movie-star looks and unwittingly confirming for Michelle that he thinks Carla Bruni is a hottie. Waving and ruining to another group photo, this time for Prime Minister Singh of India, the president actually thought that he was qualified to offer economic advice, despite America's 9% unemployment and mountain of debt, to a world on the brink of economic Armageddon.

After all those missteps, it's wonderful to know that France and America emerged from the summit standing side-by-side on common ground. Years after the Freedom Fries controversy, Nic and Barry's friendship was rekindled when it was revealed that both men can't stand the prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyhu.

Being the Scripture scholar he is, Barack Obama should know that Jesus warned:

Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees. They just pretend to be godly. Everything that is secret will be brought out into the open. Everything that is hidden will be uncovered. What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight. What you have whispered to someone behind closed doors will be shouted from the rooftops.

There you have it. Two yeasty Pharisees, one who switched off the Teleprompter but forgot to check the microphone and another whose vertical challenges put him in perfect proximity to be heard telling Obama that he "can't stand" Benjamin Netanyahu and that the Israeli leader is a "liar."

Not that Nicolas initiated the conversation. According to a French publication, after the press conference where Obama laid out a plan of action to save the world from economic destruction, the two men retreated to a private room. It was there that Obama allegedly broached the subject and criticized "Sarkozy for not having warned him that France would be voting in favor of the Palestinian membership bid in UNESCO despite Washington's strong objection to the move."

The French leader and the US President were so anxious to rip Bibi apart that they blurted out their feelings openly, both of them unaware that the private conversation was being broadcast for over three minutes on the headsets still on the ears of journalists.

In order to protect the confidentiality of Sarkozy and Obama, the reporters who heard the insulting remarks were then asked to protect the two leaders by "signing an agreement to keep mum on the embarrassing comments."

One member of the media confirmed that "there were discussions between journalists and they agreed not to publish the comments due to the sensitivity of the issue." Like what? The sensitive issue that Barack Obama is a phony, two-faced, Israel-hating liar?

One good thing is that the broadcast of Sarkozy and Obama's private hatemongering session confirmed for Mr. Netanyahu once and for all that he was right not to use the phones in the White House and that in the future he should not turn his back on the guy who hugged the Islamic Turk at the G-20. As for Jewish voters leaning toward Obama in the 2012 election: Do you finally get it?

So it's official: Rather than steer the French president toward amity with Israel, historic Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama added to the anti-Israel sentiment that presently permeates the world, replying, "You're fed up with him, but I have to deal with him every day!"

Which is exactly how most of America feels about you right about now, Mr. President: "Fed up" and sick of dealing with you every day.
