“Obama who had concerns that France could elect a future president who undermined America foreign policy.”

Isn’t it amazing who this man, who bows to and embraces despots and dictators, perceives as America’s enemies?

to be honest Sarkozy aside the French have not exactly been the best “friends” we could hope for
De Gaulle was a pain and an ungrateful one at that
Chirac a corrupt pain who delighted in forging relationships with Iran and Russia at our expense
Mitterand a royal pain

Zer0 is just pissed that Mrs. Sarkozy is hot vs. FWOTUS.

This has very little to do with Obama. The truth is that the French have been amazingly obnoxious in past, especially under Chirac, who was obsessed with tearing America down several notches, to be utterly thwarted by W. Bush at every turn.

One of the things they did was to conduct a full scale industrial espionage campaign against US businessmen flying to and from France: copying their computer hard drives, photographing the contents of briefcases. Very aggressive stuff. A lot of this peaked with the Airbus vs. Boeing fight, France backdoor dealings with Saddam, and a bunch of other very seamy campaigns.

And while the both countries had strict rules

I recall reading someplace that France was actually one of the top 5 perpetrators of espionnage against the U.S. Primarily industrial espionnage. (and I think the reports all referred to them as “Country A” so as to avoid offending them)
