It was rotten of President Sarkozy to exclude an invitation to Queen Elizabeth!

Both the Queen and Prince Phillip were serving in WWII when Obama’s mama was still in diapers. In fact, I believe, Elizabeth is today, the only living head of state who actually served in uniform during World War II.

Many of the current heads of state aren’t worthy of being in the same company as the magnificent men and women who served in wartime. If, once, they ever educated themselves enough to know and realize and respect the sacrifices of those who came before, in their greed and preening self regard, they have forgotten it, now.

Leeches, many of them!

Mr Sarkozy’s dream date would be dinner somewhere spectacular such as the Jules Verne, an Alain Ducasse restaurant on the Eiffel Tower. The Obamas were reported on French celebrity websites to be planning a meal there.

I've eaten there with my wife on our 2nd honeymoon to Paris. It was very romantic. And the view was spectacular, the city and most especially my wife!

He probably went to a mosque in one of the banieules instead.

What an embarrassment this guy is to our country.

Probably afraid that Obama couldn’t keep his eyes or his hands off Carla...

Ugghhh...not likely. BTW..we NEVER hear of Obie's previous 'girlfriends' prior to Big Mama. Of course Larry Sinclair has some opinions.

All he cares about is ‘sticking it to the white man/woman’ and he’s been doing it with gutso.

After four years of this, I do not doubt that he’ll be fleeing to another country for refuge.

It’s because BO wouldn’t be able to converse with an intelligent person.

Bingo! 0 cannot spend any length of time with any educated person who is not bowing down to him, literally or figuratively. He cannot afford to have his lack of historical knowledge and his inability to speak without his teleprompter found out. Wouldn't a conversation with Rush or Thomas Sowell be revealing.

There’s only room for one “French” President. Obambi is clearly “out-frenching” Sarkozy, both in foreign policy and in arrogance.

"It was rotten of President Sarkozy to exclude an invitation to Queen Elizabeth!"

The 65th D-Day observation was not scheduled as a formal international event, like the 50th and 60th.

TOTUS made it one with his last minute (maybe two week) notice that he was coming on his way back from the middle east. That would have been fine until PM Brown decided he wanted to come.

You just don't issue invitations to heads of state (The Queen) unless you know they can say yes. With time running out, the invitation was given to The Prince who could make it.

Look, Sarkozy and Merkel and most of EU are not happy at all with Osama dropping in like a peasant and making populist appearances all over the Continent.

I don’t understand that kind of crap. Why is it that people,men and women,have to spend thousands of dollars on shoes and clothes? Insecurity? Or maybe to prove to the world they are better than most people. Especially those who are head of states. So many so called leaders of countries all over the world living the high life and their people suffer in so many different ways. And Obama was suppose to be all about the people,there again he proves himself a liar.

Wow. Priceless. Simply priceless. Disturbing is the first thought that comes to my mind.

How unsettling, such utter raw emotion, antagonism, belligerence as ugly, emotionally dissonant as anything to emerge from the 60's anti-white establishment I have ever seen. I suppose having to sit among all those white folk must have been too much.

To make matters worse, what does The COMMUNE Organizer do? He goes to Germany before D-day for no other reason than rub Buchenwald in Merkel's face. No state dinner, no diplomatic business, no invite.

This after saying to his comrades in faith and dictatorship that The Holocaust is the same as the Palestinian emigration from Israel.

This guy is a Black Liberation theologist who hates western civilization.

excellent point.

Obama had absolutely no intention of attending the D Day commemoration. A few weeks ago, they realized it would make a great photo-op for him, and he demanded an invite.

He cares nothing about things American, Western, or European. It is all about him.

The arrogance of Obama is dumbfounding. He is a guest of a sovereign nation and and ally, on the heels of a mild reconcilition between our nations, and he declines the invitation of the sovereign leader to join with dinner?

Are you bloody kidding me?????????????????????????????????????

Isn’t it the White House, not the Elysee Palace, that is bathed in shame.

I’m dumbstruck. I already hate Obama. Who is this ass? Just when you think he can’t do anymore damage...
