Another Reason to Like the French

I’ve liked the French every since they tossed out that liberal embezzling crook Jacques Chirac and elected Sarkozy, the French dude with the conservative ideals and sexy wife uh, wives. And now I have another reason:

French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who sought during the 2008 presidential campaign to associate himself with Barack Obama, has become sharply critical of the American president, often comparing Obama unfavorably to himself, according to an article published this week in the authoritative French daily Le Monde.

The article quotes Sarkozy twice recently criticizing Obama in public, and says he’s twice gone on the record criticizing Obama in recent weeks. Asked last Monday in a television interview of his sweeping attempt to reform several sectors of French government simultaneously, Sarkozy pointed to Obama’s made health care reform his sole focus.

“I didn’t see that that made things simpler,” he said.

Smart guy, that French dude.
