He said, he said ...
Posted by: McQ on Tuesday, October 28, 2008

On the one hand, you have the Israeli newspaper Harretz saying this:
French President Nicolas Sarkozy is very critical of U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama's positions on Iran, according to reports that have reached Israel's government.

Sarkozy has made his criticisms only in closed forums in France. But according to a senior Israeli government source, the reports reaching Israel indicate that Sarkozy views the Democratic candidate's stance on Iran as "utterly immature" and comprised of "formulations empty of all content."
On the other hand, you have Ben Smith reporting this:
The French Embassy puts out a statement denying the Haaretz report that an Israeli official said President Sarkozy was troubled by his Iran policy:

The remarks attributed by the newspaper Haaretz to the president of the French Republic concerning Sen. Obama's positions on Iran are groundless. To the contrary, the in-depth discussions between the president of the Republic and Sen. Obama on Iran during their meeting in Paris in July demonstrated a broad convergence of views on this issue. President Sarkozy and Sen. Obama agree to oppose Iran's development of a military nuclear capability.
I'll just say that having listened too and read some of Obama's foreign policy positions, I would have no problem agreeing with describing them as "immature" and "formulations empty of all content".

For the most part they are idealistic pap which ignore the reality of international relations for the fantasy of unselfish cooperation based on what Barack Obama thinks is the best for all.

I'll also say that if I had said what is claimed to have been said and I was the President of France, I'd deny it too [my guess is this statement came in the form of a leak from a staffer or someone close to Sarkozy].

That promised 6 month confrontation is looking more and more like a good bet.

Sarkozy is obviously racist.

IF President Bush is wrong to unilaterally go to war, would not a President Obama be equally wrong to unilaterally go to negotiate?

Ah, in other words, they’ve been written by a giant like Professor Scott Erb.
