Sarkozy’s Contempt for Obama

2009 September 30
by bc3b

The contempt with which the president of France regards the president of the United States was displayed in public last week.

Nicolas Sarkozy was furious with Barack Obama for his adolescent warbling about a world without nuclear weapons at a meeting Mr. Obama chaired of the United Nations Security Council last Thursday (9/24).

“We must never stop until we see the day when nuclear arms have been banished from the face of the earth,” President Obama said.

What infuriated President Sarkozy was that at the time Mr. Obama said those words, Mr. Obama knew the mullahs in Iran had a secret nuclear weapons development site, and he didn’t call them on it.

‘President Obama dreams of a world without weapons…but right in front of us two countries are doing the exact opposite,” Mr. Sarkozy said.

When a country that prepares for war by increasing production of white flags calls Obama out, it shows how little confidence people like Sarkozy, Merkel and Putin have for “The One.”

Obama and Sarkozy see eye to eye on some things, but not many. Yes, Barack – there’s no junk in that trunk, but she’s also jailbait.

    Derided by the French as weaklings?

    We have met the enemy, and he is us.

    As I posted a few days ago, its time to decide if Obama is a man or a mouse. He knew about the nuclear development site while he was addessing the UN, but didn’t say anything about it. Was he afraid? Of what?

    Even if he didn’t have solid proof (though I’ve read that Bush made him aware of the possibility last December) that he would be willing to share with the world, when the world found out about the site, that was another opportunity for Obama to man up.

    I watched that greta clip BC provided. When you get to the part of the clip where Sarkozy, Brown and O at standing at the podium look at Sarkozy’s stance. He’s two steps away from O, his shoulder is turned away from O, has his hands in his pockets and has a facial expression of “Why am I standing here with this dork?”

    Is jindal so freakin blind that he can’t see the public opposition to obama care? If he wants the GOP to join in that goatrope, than he is another myopic RINO with cerebral rectumitis.

    Dry out your barf bucket then read this piece.

    Now I have noticed of late a shift in some of LAT’s content to a more centrist position. I guess fears of going extinct focuses the mind. Anybody know if their editorial board has had a reshuffle in the last couple of weeks?

    This is a messy time for the nation’s politics. And this seemingly serene autumn day is quietly crucial.

    Despite all the excitement and promise of a fresh Barack Obama administration cleaning house from eight years of Republican rule and with a Congress in the lopsided control of his own Democratic party, the nation’s capital is mired in partisan pushing over healthcare, among numerous fractious issues. And it’s likely about to enter a bitter war over war.

    DD, just the first few lines makes the whole thing unreadable.

    1st, the Republicans didn’t have 8 years of rule. 2nd, Congress doesn’t have a “l0psided” control over the Democrat party; the Democrat party has lopsided control over Congress. 3rd, the reference to “cleaning house” is one of the most insane comments I have ever read. The Obama administration is so full of criminals and communists it boggles the mind. 4th, we all know there wouldn’t be a “war over war” if the election were next month instead of next year. 90% of the Democrats will miraculously turn hawkish again, if only for a few months.

    Jindal is a bright guy, but he lacks charisma and apparently courage.

    It’s interesting comparing Jindal’s remarks with Palin’s Hong Kong speech There aren’t many with courage in the GOP in the GOP: Palin, DeMint, Bachmann, Sessions, Barrasso, the boys from Oklahoma.

    It’s time for the GOP to take the offensive because we have the momentum – Tea Parties, Obama is at -11 today as strongly support has declined to 28% (49 favorable/51 unfavorable).

    Even some liberals, like Howard Fineman, are starting to criticize Obama, but many Republicans just want to play nice.

    Dr. Dog, #10–I noticed that as well. I thought that was extremely revealing. I think the marxist is already a laughingstock behind closed doors as people discover just what an empty suit he is, and what an arrogant #$%@* he is at the same time.

    Evidently Sarkozy, Merkel and Netanyahu are now the de-facto leaders of the free world, since the marxist has abdicated that role.

    In re-reading Jindal’s comments, what upsets me the most is that he is pulling an Obama – making apologies for the GOP. While Obama is seriously wounded, Republicans seem to be trying to prop him up (Jindal on health care and Romney on Obama’s decision to personally push for the Chicago Olympics).

    By the way, apparently, Michelle travelled separately on Air Force 2.

    Yeah I know thats why said get out the bucket. The money quote is the last two paragraphs —

    Here’s the entire Obama transcript. But notice anything missing here? No more mention of the original 9/11 bad guys, the Taliban. No mention either of defeating them. And no more mention of making it safe for democracy to flourish in Afghanistan.

    Through such overlooked omissions are the political goals and measures of American victory in Afghanistan being subtly shifted without any notice or announcement by the Obama administration.

    Another words we are going to get the Left’s version of “Mission Accomplished”. When the WH does the goal post move, we ought to call’em on it, hard.

    Be careful. A short dumpy looking Froggy conquered nearly all of europe and almost Russia before being whipped. The French may prefer brie and sex in the afternoon but they have a diabolical streak to look out for.

    Wikipedia describes Timothy Treadwell (April 29, 1957 – October 5, 2003) as:
    an American bear enthusiast, environmentalist, amateur naturalist, eco-warrior and documentary film maker.

    That they failed to also describe him as a DELUSIONAL MORON shows how poor wikipedia can be.

    Treadwell lived among the coastal grizzly bears of Katmai National Park in Alaska for 13 years…at the end of his 13th season in the park he and his girlfriend Amie Huguenard were killed and partially devoured by the grizzly bears.

    If Obama wants to personally “go Treadwell”, then fine…GO! But Obama wants all of US to “go Treadwell” with him.

    And unlike the patient Alaskan bears, the Russian, Iranian and Chinese “grizzlies” won’t wait 13 years to eat us!!

    WoHo! SCOTUS will hear MacDonald case to decide whether incorporation is implicit in the second amendment and binding on States and local governments.

    “SCOTUS will hear MacDonald case to decide whether incorporation is implicit in the second amendment and binding on States and local governments.”

    Should be interesting, let hope the court doesn’t go wobbly.
