IT'S STRANGE TO HEAR COMMENTATORS SPEAK OF THE UR BRINGING AN END TO ARROGANCE...:

Sarkozy pours scorn on Obama's 'inexperience' (Danny Brierley, 17.04.09, Evening Standard)

FRENCH president Nicolas Sarkozy has labelled his US counterpart Barack Obama "inexperienced and indecisive".

The unflattering assessment of Mr Obama's political abilities came during a sweeping broadside against a host of world leaders. Mr Sarkozy has also reportedly labelled the Spanish leader as dim, the German Chancellor as clinging on to France's coat tails and the head of the European Commission as irrelevant.

In the latest candid communiqués from the Elysée Palace, Mr Sarkozy was quoted as telling an all-party group of MPs that Mr Obama "was elected two months ago and had never run a ministry. There are a certain number of things on which he has no position. And he is not always up to standard on decision making and efficiency".


...given that he's never run anything but thought he could govern America effectively.
