The US President is weak, the Spanish leader is dim, the German Chancellor is clinging on to Frances coat-tails and the head of the European Commission is irrelevant.
That, at any rate, is the world according to President Sarkozy, who has spent the week airing his unvarnished opinions of Barack Obama and an array of international politicians abruptly ending Frances honeymoon with the US and needling Washington on several strategic issues.
In the latest in a stream of accounts from the Élysée Palace, Mr Sarkozy was quoted yesterday as telling an all-party group of MPs that Mr Obama was inexperienced and indecisive.

A cheese eating surrender monkey kicking @ss.

Sarkozy is very smart. He saw how the Kenyan insulted Gordon Brown. So Sarkozy is getting in his licks first. PLUS Sarkozy saw the Kenyan in action at the G20 ans saw what an untutored numb skull he is.
MEANING stupid American are conned by 0bomo demagoguery but not a European politician who has come up the hard way. Vlad Putin also got a good look at our Kommie Kenyan
This Hungarian man is leading France quite well.
Someone ship Sarkozy some more jalapeno cheese. He’s come to life!

Sarko also has a delightful sense of humor; he is very in touch, and he gets it.
“Mr Sarkozy was also reported yesterday to have cracked a dubious joke about Europes Obamamania. According to LExpress news magazine, he mentioned Mr Obamas planned visit to Normandy for the D-day anniversary in June, saying: I am going to ask him to walk on the Channel, and hell do it.”

Note: No evidence of a broken collar bone seen here!
Or an oversized butt. If I were Sarko, I don’t know where to get the strength to govern in the mornings if she was my FL :)
The longer Obama stays in office the more obvious it will become to the world that he is an incompetent fraud. He is a national embarrassment.
Hey lefties! Don't you just love the love? The world is our oyster now. /s
All of the above!
must agree with you on this. :-)
