New Book Cites Obama Describing Netanyahu in 2012 Campaign as 'A Pain in the Ass'

Double Down, published Tuesday, also reflects Obama’s 'hands-off' approach to Middle East peacemaking at the time. Obama 'relished' reports of Biden confrontation with Netanyahu, authors claims.

At the height of his 2012 election campaign, U.S. President Barack Obama told his campaign staff “We all know that Bibi Netanyahu is a pain in the ass,” according the new and much discussed political book “Double Down, Game Change 2012” that came out Tuesday in New York.
