Even Israel PM Netanyahu would beat Obama in 2012 …
Americans polled prefer Israel Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over President Barack Obama. I think the real news here is that 51.5% actually rated Obama positively. That is a far cry from his present job approval numbers.
“A poll conducted by the group Greenberg Quinlan Rosner found that 52.3 percent of Americans rate Netanyahu positively, compared to 51.5 percent for Obama,” reports Israel Today Magazine. “The results of the poll were enthusiastically discussed on Israel’s Channel 10 News on Thursday.”
The Washington Examiner called the polling firm to confirm and request the full data, including margin of error, but hasn’t heard back yet. The poll reportedly asked questions of 800 U.S. citizens.
Of course Barack Obama showed his true feelings of Israel when he was overheard on a hot mike at the G-20 meetings with French President Nicolas Sarkozy complaining about Israeli Prime Minister Banjamin Netanyahu.
“Obama began by reproaching Sarkozy for not warning him in advance that France would vote in favour of Palestinian membership of UNESCO,” the website reported. “The conversation turned to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, with Sarkozy saying ,’I don’t want to see him anymore, he’s a liar.’
“To which President Obama replied: ‘You’ve had enough of him, but I have to deal with him every day!’ Obama then asked Sarkozy to try to convince the Palestinians to slow down with their UN membership drive.”
Real classy Barack, putting the “Hussein” in Barack Hussein Obama.
