The art of doublespeak – Israel Opinion, Ynetnews

This is the custom: In Israel, the prime minister looks to his voters, makes plenty of noise, and flexes his muscles like a Doberman. Yet when this PM visits the president, be it Obama or his predecessors, he speaks and acts like a Poodle. For that reason, the political lexicon includes the term “Poodlman” – one who barks and even bites like a Doberman, while becoming a Poodle in the president’s presence.
