Now Obama has insulted French President Sarkozy!

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

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.

And the Left is still convinced that Bush was a dork, and that Obama is some kind of intellectual heavyweight.

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"...

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.

http://www.lefigaro.fr/actualites/20...es-chirac-.php

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.”

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!
