Romney’s True Friend, Bibi
Only your real friends will tell you when your face is dirty.
Mitt Romney on his friendship with Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu:
We can almost speak in shorthand. We share common experiences and have a perspective and underpinning which is similar.
Shorthand? Wow, that is beautiful. Tell us more!
Israel’s current prime minister is not just a friend, he’s an old friend.
Okay, I’m convinced. Let’s see how Mitt’s amazingly close bond with Bibi would affect his role as President.
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?’
Wonderful. This is surely something which every American dreams of – a president whose loyalty to an old friend has him placing the interests of a foreign nation ahead of those of the U.S. There is no better definition of a friend than this, is there?
And what does Netanyahu have to say in return about his “old friend”, Mittens?
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.
I suppose? Too funny. Listen, if Romney is going to go through the trouble of lying, is it too much to ask that he at least put in the effort to make it a lie that is not this easy to refute?
What is wrong with this guy?
