Netanyahu: Romney Lying About Their Friendship

Netanyahu: Romney Lying About Their Friendship
byTeam Sarah4Choice

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


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."

1. I don't know which one, but either Romney or Netanyahu is lying.

And if it's Netanyahu, he's lying about Romney lying.

37. Does it matter?

Even if they are best buds and Netanyahu is lying to distance himself, it's a good thing.

I think Mittens is the liar in this case though.

4. It's like Romney doesn't know the things he says can be fact-checked

He really just thinks that everything he says is true by virtue of him having said them, doesn't he? Because he's a rich, handsome, Anglo-Saxon, dammit, and how dare us peasants to even think about checking up on what he says!

9. Does anyone really think he's handsome?

His head is too big. And those graying temples do not come across well, IMO.

If you like to imagine Ward Cleaver being hard on your beaver, Romney's your kind of guy.

16. No. He's photogenic, meaning he has regular features, but his

dead, beady eyes and thin lips are very unattractive.

20. He probably knows,

but he thinks he can skate by simply because he's not Obama, and because the not-really-liberal media gives him passes sometimes.

5. Romney can't open hs mouth without sticking his foot in it.

I hope the Dems land on him like a ton of bricks.

These gaffes (lies) are worth their weight in political gold.

13. They are both cut from the same cloth, so

they could be friends. Incidentally, Netanyahu is a buddy of Rush Limbaugh.

and then he will say "guess what, I'm lying."

posthumously.

I wish Rmoney would continue his world tour - three or four more weeks, minimum!

Seriously, he could go to Antarctica and he'd somehow manage to piss off the penguins.

34. Good lord. Just as an aside, did anyone see Romney's full quote from...

...that article?
"I'd get on the phone to my friend Bibi Netanyahu and say, 'Would it help if I said this? What would you like me to do?'"


What the puppet-of-Israel fuck? Are we that far gone that a presidentail candidate can openly say something like that?

Is that a real quote? Is that taken out of context?

If that's true, if that quote is accurate, I seriously don't know if I've ever seen a presidential candidate so openly grovel to an Israeli government. Can you imagine if a presidential candidate openly said that he would call another country's government and ask what they'd like him to do, like a store clerk calling up the boss to see if he has permission to break a hundred dollar bill for a customer?
