Hold the Freedom Fries. The new French President-elect François Hollande wants the world to know that he speaks Englishbetter than proudly pro-American Nicolas Sarkozyand isn't out to "make things difficult for Barack Obama" on issues like Afghanistan.
"Yes, I speak English, more fluently than the former president. But a French president has to speak French!" Hollande told Slate.frin Englishin a wide-ranging interview published one day after he beat Sarkozy in a runoff election.
The Socialist was to meet with Obama next week before two important international summits: a G8 gathering sure to focus on ways to pull the world economy out of its slump, and a NATO meeting to discuss the way forward in Afghanistan.
Hollande said he saw potential areas of agreement with Obama on economic issues and praised the American president for charting a different foreign-policy course than his predecessor.
"I will therefore assert France's independence without making things difficult for Barack Obama," said the new French leader.

The french are going to assert their independence without making things difficult......lemme guess, they're going to become part of Germany again without a fight?
Lol, what a slut.
Pretty cool that the new French Presidente’ likes to insult Bush even though he is long gone. s/ These commies simply cannot understand that most people actually wanted what President George W. Buch had. He is living in there heads rent free. Good luck France (and I really mean it) with your new Soviet leader. You elected him, just remember that.
Doin’ the French Mistake....
As long as OStalin has a couple of pallets of freshly printed American money for him I think their relationship will be friendly.
Hollande knows that Ubama will have much more “flexibility” after the election.
He’s easy for the preezy.
So...who’s gonna be the “pitcher” and who the “catcher”?
To borrow a phrase, it sure sounds like Hollande has agreed to become Obama's French poodle.
Warning to Hollande - Obama has been known to eat dog meat...
