Help me out here folks Could he really be this stupid????
Now Obama has insulted French President Sarkozy!
Oh no! Obama sent a letter to Chirac, saying he looks forward to working with him the next four years. Le Figaro, French newspaper is horrified at the faux pas. Doesn't Obama ever consult his staff before acting? Sarkozy is the President there! It's like Sarko writing to George Bush and saying he looks forward to working with him. Chirac is the FORMER president.
Here is a translation of the letter in Le Figaro:
Vendredi 20 mars 2009 OBAMA PREFERS CHIRAC !
Barack Obama does not seem to know that in May 2007, French voters elected Nicolas Sarkozy to the French presidency, to succeed Jacques Chirac who had been president for twelve years.
Yesterday, we told you Sarkozy is irritated because Mister O. refuses to tell him if he will accept to meet him personally in the next few months.
Strangely, we have just learnt this surprising piece of news :
Barack Obama wrote a letter to Jacques Chirac to tell him about his desire to "work with him" for the next four years ! In a letter described by Chirac as "very nice," Obama wrote, "I am certain that we will be able to work together, in the coming four years, in a spirit of peace and friendship to build a safer world." The use of the word "peace" was taken to be an indirect reference to Chirac's stance against the US intervention in Iraq, which Obama had also opposed.
This revelation was made by the online edition of the daily Le Figaro on Thursday.
Vendredi 20 mars 2009 OBAMA PREFERS CHIRAC !
So, if I understand well, Mister O., who has already despised Gordon Brown, behaving with him as if he did not know he is Prime Minister of Britain, does not even know the name of the French president.
I wonder if someone had told him, when he came to France last summer, that the man he met was NOT Jacques Chirac !
In any case, for Sarko, the blow must be terrible : he has tried to persuade Obama to invite him in Washington for months, and now he learns that his predecessor might soon be Obama's guest at the White House before him ! http://europumas.over-blog.com/article-29271371.html edited to add the original french article: http://www.lefigaro.fr/actualites/20...es-chirac-.php
This can’t be real.
Its real easy to insult the French but Obama has gots to go
Is this for real
Sounds like Jimmy Carter all over again!
Is this Onion?
I saw this earlier and thought it was a joke, too. Is it for real?
They couldn’t have been that stupid, could they?
Does Palin sound smarter than Obama yet? You Bethca!
Let’s not forget that candidate GW was hailed an idiot for not knowing who the president of Pakistan was in a reporter’s game of gotcha.
Can this possibly be true?
I can imagine Barky not knowing who the President of France is, but there is no way he writes his own letters. Surely the rest of the people in the administration know.
LMAO, and they said Sarah Palin didnt know anything about foreign policy.
Too bad the French President’s name wasnt on a teleprompter somewhere.
And the Left is still convinced that Bush was a dork, and that Obama is some kind of intellectual heavyweight.
Who’s got the BS meter?
..."yeah get me the Office of Protocol, he did it again"
Carter was much brighter than this guy. Course, that’s not saying a lot.
Sarkozy’s response should be: I look forward to working with you George!
Sacre Bleu! Of course you know zat zis means war!
I could see that as an SNL skit:
Scene -- the new fuhrer is in the Oval Office penning a letter. Close up on him as he writes...
"Dear " (he looks up at the Teleprompter) "Mr. Il"...
No link after the link? It’s B.S.!
Here is a Google search. I am going to drill down on some of the links
Said in my best 1980’s voice, “No way!”
I know 0 is stupid, but this would be way beyond stupid.
Yes, this is for real.
Is this satire?
Here is a link I found on a Hannity board, but it is in French and I dont speck Surrender Monkey.
I can see why he has sealed his college transcripts.
Apparently not. We’re toast.
From a Hannity site -
I have the link to the French online newspaper ‘Le Figaro’ that reports on the letter President Obama wrote to Jacques Chirac but the site is in French.
He is said to have written, “I’m sure that we can, over the next four years, work together in the spirit of peace and friendship to create a safer world.”
From europumas site: (the English-translated page)
Shame on you, Mr. Obama.
Well, so the guy not only says whatever the teleprompter tells him to say, but writes whatever the 20-year-olds running our state department tell him? Good Lord — I knew who the Prime Minister and the President of France were when I was 18!
Roughly, it says, “Bendenzee ovah, mes ami”
So what if it is a mix of German and French.
Keep it up, Odumbo. The more he pulls these stunts the quicker the voter challenged will see the light.
The translation in the posted article is correct.
Either O and his staff really are this stupid, or they’re trying to get a shadow government going in France.
Oh, my gosh. This is for real. Can we recall this moron?
And the French are reporting that, too...with a video clip!
SUN MARCH 22, 11:00 AM By James Carter in Atlanta I thank Obama because ... He finally took away my title of WORST PRESIDENT EVER. —Sincerely, Jimmy Carter
Holy cow.. I just checked it out and your right. I was absolutely sure this was satire.
I posted it Saturday and I believe that someone later in the thread verified it.
Can’t make this stuff up, seriously.
