Flamboyant Sarkozy belittles Obama
Nicolas "Show-Off" Sarkozy has done it again and this time he has eclipsed all his previous best stunts. Widely known for his dislike for the US President Barack Obama for stealing the media spotlight, the French President never seem to miss a beat when presented with an opportunity.
France's flamboyant President Nicolas Sarkozy has "insulted" three world leaders, including American President Barack Obama, over a brief lunch at Elysee Palace, a British newspaper has claimed.
Sarkozy suggested Obama was "inexperienced", Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero wasn't very clever and German Chancellor Angela Merkel didn't share his foresight about how to tackle the global financial crisis over a lunch session on Wednesday, 'The Daily Telegraph' reported.
Nicolas Sarkozy has never been one to endear himself to his fellow heads of state. He has irritated with his boastfulness, exhausted with his hyperactivity and offended with his tendency to launch televised policy decimations and send text messages during meetings.
But, impressive though his track record is, he may now have outdone even himself. In the space of just one lunchtime, the French president has managed to belittle Barack Obama, patronise Angela Merkel and insult José Luis Zapatero by questioning his intellectual firepower.
