Sarkozy: “Obama is insane!”

Somewhere deep in the recesses of my memory, I seem to recall President-elect Obama promising to restore our relations with the rest of the world. Somehow, I don’t think it’s indicative of an improvement when the French President says Obama is insane:

A new report circulating in the Kremlin today authored by France’s Directorate-General for External Security (DGSE) and recently “obtained” by the FSB shockingly quotes French President Nicolas Sarkozy … as stating that President Barack Obama is “a  dangerous[ly] aliéné”, which translates into his, Obama, being a “mad lunatic”, or in the American vernacular, “insane”.

According to this report, Sarkozy was “appalled” at Obama’s “vision” of what the World should be under his “guidance” and “amazed” at the American Presidents unwillingness to listen to either “reason” or “logic”.  Sarkozy’s meeting where these impressions of Obama were formed took place nearly a fortnight ago at the White House in Washington D.C., and upon his leaving he “scolded” Obama and the US for not listening closely enough to what the rest of the World has to say.

Bear in mind that Sarkozy, while I have a great deal of respect for him (as opposed to his corrupt predecessor), is not the most unbiased source when it comes to Obama. In fact, he seems to crave the President’s attention. And yet, he has in the past scolded Obama for failing to deal with reality, which, you have to admit, can be a sign of a deranged mind. So perhaps multiple experiences have lead him to this conclusion. At the very least, the French President seems to be following roughly the same line of thought as the Hollywood writer.

So, has our President’s little choo-choo gone chugging around the bend? Is he a fruitcake with extra nuts? Should we pad Oval Office?

Nah. As I said before, I think he’s a callow egotist who needs to grow up. He can do (and is doing) enough damage just being that. He doesn’t need to be insane, and calling him that only serves to weaken the legitimate criticism he so richly deserves.

AFTERTHOUGHT: And did the Russians really steal that report, or did the French “let” it be stolen? Thinking

UPDATE: To clarify a point made in the comments, the source newspaper seems more than a bit … questionable, to be nice about it. I should have made that more clear, rather than assume people would get it from the post. Next time, I’ll put it in bright, red letters: quotation here is for illustrative purposes and does not necessarily imply endorsement. The thrust of the piece merely reminded me of earlier Sarkozy-Obama frictions (see links) and questions about the President and personality disorders. (See other link.)

    If it is on the Internet, it must be true, right?

    Did you look at the source article? I’ve never seen a website with so may PayPal “Donate” buttons on it. But if you read down, the same article that says the Russians say the French say Obama is nuts, it also says that:

    “For any of the few Americans left daring to oppose Obama we had previously warned about the massive death camps he is preparing for them, but which these most strange of peoples continue to deny the existence of in their naïve belief that if they choose not to believe a thing it makes it not true.”


    “And for those even daring to expose the truth of what is being done to the American people Obama took the unprecedented step this week of authorizing for the first time in American history his secret government intelligence services to assassinate one of their own citizens without benefit of trial”


    “In finding the deliberately hidden clues as to what will happen as The Great Game nears its inevitable climax all caution must be taken, including to whom you might tell your most secret of thoughts”

    Are you really endorsing all this?

      I would think my tone and the “Nah…” would tell you that I wasn’t.

  2. Porkchop says:

    Nah. The original article itself says they don’t know if it is true… three lines from the bottom, after the death camps and other actually crazy pronouncements. I’m not going back for a quote because I had to reboot after visiting the site… it did weird (but temporary) things to my machine.

    Google “French Obama Insane” and look at what kind of sites are reporting it as credible news. The whole thing is more likely to be fictionalized bullshit than anything resembling fact. It’ll be a good test for Fox to see if it shows up there.

    The problem is that just the repeating of it will make it harden into “known” fact, whether you’ve got a disclaimer or not: just the -link- does that. So repeating it when you don’t think it is true doesn’t help dispel it any.

    Your link to your hat tip doesn’t work. He either pulled his post or you link is bad.

    • Phineas Fahrquar says:

      Tsk. If you’re going to quote dodgy sources, at least don’t hide the fact you did it.

    Every story I have seen on this winds up leading back to EUTimes, which is an amazingly bad website.
    The place is a cesspool of anti-semitism.
