Nicolas Sarkozy puts Barack Obama in the doghouse

  1. "France has been cooing along with everyone else over the arrival of Bo Obama at the White House, but the master of America's new First Dog is no longer in good odour with President Sarkozy.

    Mr Sarkozy is pouring cold water on President Obama's efforts to recast American leadership on the world stage, depicting them as unoriginal, unsubstantial and overrated. Behind leaks and briefings from the Elysée Palace lies Mr Sarkozy's irritation at the rock-star welcome that Europe gave Mr Obama on his Europan tour earlier"

  3. haven't we had enough macho talking and acting presidents? GWB was enough for two lifetimes. It is a sign of insecurity rather than strength really.

    Sarkozy has a hot wife going for him... way hotter than Michelle Obama but that's about it since he is the French president after all. France has never been much of a leader in the recent world history and that probably won't change under him either. The French like to chatter but action has never been their strong suit.

  4. Sarkozy is the real bitch if he has to smile in Obamas face then talk shit about him behind his back

    Sounds like he's just jealous that Obama is more popular in Europe then he is

    ........Hmmmmm................ What was the question again?
     
  6. Obama went to Europe hoping to accomplish two critical missions. He wanted the EU to grant additional stimulus and for Europe to place more troops in Afghanistan. Obama struck out on both. Sarkozy and Merkel said "no can do" but Sarkozy said "hey you can still come over and eat!" So Obama went to France and everyone loved his company.

    The Headlines in the States: Because of Obama, America Finally Is Loved By Europe Again.

    In Europe the stories were generally along the lines of, "Obama was exceedingly graceful after we rejected his policies of bigger deficits and more war."
     
  7. France is a nuclear power with a UN veto, enough said. Just because they have enough brains to not engage in "liberating" missions around the world does not make them weak.

    Don't fall into the trap of thinking French are weak because they got rolled by the Germans in WWII. US army would have been rolled as well if it were in a similar position in 1940.

  9. Why should we take a guy seriously knowing that he is married to an ex-pornstar?

    Would you bite from a bread which was partially eaten by 18989776767 guys before you did?
     
  10. She is not an ex pornstar she is an ex model. She did however, have nude pictures of her floating in the public domain.

    Any woman who publicly bends over and shows her ass in a public way in the manner similar to the picture above is the kind of woman you NEVER marry.
