French President Disses Obama; Calls Nuclear-Free Pledge "Hot Air"

The American President's call "to free the world of the menace of a nuclear nightmare" was hot air, Mr Sarkozy's diplomatic staff told him in a report. "It was rhetoric – not a speech on American security policy but an export model aimed at improving the image of the United States," they said. Most of Mr Obama's proposals had already been made by the Bush administration and Washington was dragging its feet on disarmament and treaties against nuclear proliferation, the leaked report said.

So basically, all Obama brought to the table was the same old, same old, and rhetoric is all Obama has.

Where is the "change" from the previous administrations? Wasn't he supposed to be the Anti-Bush? Why does his foreign policies seem to be the same in many ways? Even other foreign leaders are starting to notice that.

Obama has been spouting conservative rhetoric with little to actually back it up for months. That's all he has.

"The President is annoyed by what he sees as the naivety and the herd mentality of the media," said a journalist who is privy to Elysée thinking.

Join the club, Sarkozy. We are currently having a membership drive. We've been fighting against the "naivety and the herd mentality of the media" for years.

I, also, find it interesting that it is a British paper that once again takes aim at Obama while the media here is dead silent on the digg at Obama by another major foreign leader.
