Obama’s Odd Pick for USA’s New Best Friend

“We don’t have a stronger friend and stronger ally than Nicolas Sarkozy, and the French people.” (President Barack Hussein Obama)

If the France is America’s strongest ally in the world today, we are in far deeper trouble than anyone could have possibly imagined.  We might as well hoist the white flag as we surrender to our enemies throughout the world.  We need look no further than France itself (typically French “leaders”) for lessons on how quickly one can hoist a flag of surrender.

In yet another example of either the ineptness or lunacy of Obama’s foreign policy, the President has managed to not only further insult America’s strongest ally — Great Britain — but has made the insult all the more unpleasant by naming France as America’s new best friend in th world.  Of course, Israel, who used to be a close second to Great Britain, has been given the brush off — like old lint –from what is becoming more and more apparent is our country’s first “post-American President.”

The term, first coined by former Ambassador John Bolton (George Bush’s representative at the U.N.), was in response to an Obama speech at the United Nations.  In that speech, the President’s words appeared to signal a departure from long-standing foreign policy stances, particularly concerning the state of Israel.

In just the two short (seems like much, much longer) years that Obama has been in office, he has managed to distance America from our staunchest allies in the world, including Great Britain and Israel.  The latest move, in publicly naming France and Sarkozy as our nation’s strongest ally in the world, is laughable if it were not so sad.  Dr. Nile Gardiner, a former aide to Lady Thatcher, stated as much when he said, “To suggest that Paris and not London is Washington’s strongest partner is simply ludicrous.”  Ludicrous indeed!

While Obama — for whatever inexplicable reasons — may like Sarkozy and France better than David Cameron and Great Britain, no one in his or her right mind would ever want France as America’s go-to country in the world.  Just when we would need it the most, France (and her esteemed leaders) would be nowhere to be found.  After all, past is prologue and what a prologue France has had when it comes to bailing out in the big fight!

Who a person has as a best friend says a lot about the character and judgment of the person in question.  If your best friend was an abusive, no-good husband and father who constantly cheated on his wife, one would have to question your character and character.

If one sits under the preaching of a leftist, anti-American pastor for 20 years, chooses “to hold his political coming-out party” in the living room of unrepentant terrorists, and who picks France and Sarkozy as his new best friends, it just might make you wonder about our President’s character and judgment.  I’m just saying.
