U.S. Republicans hit back after leak of Sarkozy-Obama exchange on Netanyahu
A day after Presidents Sarkozy and Obama get caught deriding PM over a 'hot mic', Republicans make very clear who they feel is no friend of Israel.

<snip>

"It didnt take long for Republicans to sharpen their talons a day after French President Sarkozys embarrassing exchange with President Obama became public knowledge.

The Republicans immediately incorporated the story into a narrative of attack against President Obama, questioning his commitment to Israel.

In a formal statement, Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney said Wednesday that President Obamas derisive remarks about Israels Prime Minister confirm what any observer would have gleaned from his public statements and actions toward our longstanding ally, Israel.

We cannot have an American president who is disdainful of our special relationship with Israel, said Romney in the statement.

Republican presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann called on President Barack Obama Tuesday to apologize to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the unflattering exchange.

I call on President Obama to immediately apologize to Prime Minister Netanyahu, and I also believe that the president should demonstrate leadership and demand that the French President Sarkozy do the same, Bachmann said."

1. Why does Bachmann hate this country?
Obama should tell Bachmann to go pound sand.
