Sacré merde! Obama goofs on the French

Normally, I would be all for snubbing the French, but they got a more conservative president than we do here in America right now (I keep wondering if we got sucked into Bizzaro World somehow), but this is just dumb. Nobama sent a letter to the president of France who has been wanting to sit down and discuss world events with him. Problem is, he sent it to FORMER French President Jacques Chirac. From Red State on Obama's newest foreign policy blunder.

"I am certain that we will be able to work together, in the coming four years, in a spirit of peace and friendship to build a safer world."

Original source - Le Figaro. (Warning: French)

Needless to say, Sarkozy is upset with the faux pas. Too bad his TelePrompter didn't update him on France's change of government two years ago.

Incase you lefties are just attributing this to a once in a while slip up, Gregory of Yarddale posts over at Teh Resistance about Nobama's messups for one week!

As the prostitute said to the leper, "Thanks for the tip."

Everyone knows Obama is an idiot -- I swear he probably doesn't even know who the President of France is -- his teleprompter has no clue either!

Former French President Chirac's Foundation sends congrats to newly elected United States of America President Barack Hussein Obama.

Obama thanks him and suggests they work together for peace and prosperity over the next four years.

Predictably, right-wing blogosphere goes nucking futs. See Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit for the most entertaining take.

The Christian Science Monitor has the real story that Hoft missed:

Is there any evidence that Sarkozy is upset?

If George W Bush had done what Obama did, it would have been on every "newscast" and front page for weeks. Liberals are hypocrisy defined.
