QOTD: Obama, on open mic, tells Netanyahu ‘it’s good to get away from Congress’

“It’s good to get away from Congress.”

— President Barack Obama, while talking with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during his first trip as president to the Middle Eastern nation Wednesday. The president’s comment was caught on an open microphone, and provoked hearty laughter from Netanyahu. This comes nearly a year after another Obama open mic moment, when he told then-Russian President DmitryMedvedev that he’d have more flexibility on missile defense “after my election.”
