Sarkozy doesn't think much of Barry
“Sarkozy thinks that President Obama is incredibly naive and grossly egotistical - so egotistical that no one can dent his naiveté.”
The Frenchman thinks so little of Obama, in fact, that he fears for the free world: “he’s very worried about what that means for the West because the president of the United States is the leader of the free world. And if the president of the United States isn’t going to lead the free world, it isn’t going to be led.”
As we can see, Sarkozy isn't enamoured with Barry as much as Barry is enamoured with himself. Glad to see that Sark is seeing what many people in America have already seen in the last eight-plus months. We don't see leadership from this president. We see demagoguery. We see thug tactics. We see potential corruption. We see appeasement in the face of our enemies.
We don't see a leader. We see an empty, obtuse suit that relies on empty rhetoric and sycophantic supporters.
Barry needs to shape up, if he wants to stay in office. If he continues on this path 2012 may be a watershed year for politics in DC. I don't think that we can get him out of office then, but with the 2010 midterms around the corner, and the 2012 congressional elections, we could cut Barry off at the knees. People aren't pleased with what he and the Democrat-controlled Congress is doing, and those same people are prepared to take their frustrations out on those Democrats. (Harry Reid is already facing a Waterloo moment in Nevada, and the passion of voters this year will be made evident if the voters in Nevada can Daschle him.)
Kudos to Sark for emphasizing what leaders like Gordon Brown and Angela Merkel are thinking right now. President Bush never froze our allies abroad out, never stood for appeasement, and never would have abandoned our allies the way Barry has. Sark's showing there's a growing disillusionment in Europe over Barry. They might have been dazzled by the charisma that Barry had, but they're seeing that charisma is all this empty suit has.
