Getting caught on an open mic seems to be a right of passage for many US Presidents. Some prior incidents include Bush’s four minute rant on Hezbollah and other world leaders, Reagan joking about bombing the Soviets and Clinton berating an aide. Recently, at the G20 summit, President Obama joined the club while talking privately with French President Sarkozy. The conversation between them turned to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu where Sarkozy commented to the effect, “I can’t look at him [Netanyahu] anymore, he’s a liar.” Obama in turn replied, “You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him every day!” The anecdotes were ignored by the press after they agreed to remain mum until the French publication Arret Sur Images decided to run with it.
