Ass kissing naturally, to a French audience.
Hat tip to Gabriel Malor at Ace of Spades.
……In a speech in France, a country that has been a bastion of anti-US sentiment in recent years, the President said: “In America, there is a failure to appreciate Europe’s leading role in the world. Instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive.
Arrogance is something Obama knows quite a bit of. He even reminds his counterparts: “I won”.
The Euros haven’t been too enthusiastic about fighting a war against the Islamic threat, even as radical, violent muslims gain power and influence within their own borders.
Obama is trying to balance his insane popularity in Europe with asking them to contribute more troops in Afghanistan, but in spite of their adulation, there won’t be a military response.
Gabriel put it best:
He’s a coward with an inferiority complex, a desperate desire to win the approval of his perceived European betters. What an ass.
