French Proverb:  While the dogs growled at each other, the wolves devoured the sheep. 

鶴蚌相爭,漁翁得利

While the dogs growled at each other, the wolves devoured the sheep.

 

For example: 

In pushing for legislation, Obama is cunningly making political gains ahead of the November election.  If the immigration reform does pass, Obama will get the votes from these eleven million illegal immigrants and their friends and families who are legal immigrants.  If the immigration reform does not pass, Republicans will be condemned by the legal immigrants who are friends and families of the illegal immigrants and Obama will benefit from that too.  While the dogs growled at each other, the wolves devoured the sheep.
