Another Date Night For the Obama’s … This Time in Paris France as Barack Snubs France’s President Nicolas Sarkozy for Dinner


Date night with Michelle Obama seems to be causing “The One” a lot of difficulties. One would have thought that after Barack’s last “date night” debacle in NYC that he would have learned his lesson. GUESS NOT.


Dinner, ah, um, Let me consult with my teleprompter

For Barack Obama, date night with Michelle more important that US-Europe relations with France. There is a nice slap in the face to an ally. Especially seeing that Obama and his family are in  Obama turned down a private dinner with French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

President Obama’s reluctance to spend more than minimum time with the French leader on his visit for the D-Day anniversary has come as an embarrassment to the Elysée Palace.

America’s First Family will not be dining with President Sarkozy and his wife, Carla Bruni, even though they are staying at the residence of the US Ambassador, yards from the Elysée apartments where the Sarkozys spend their weekends.

The Obamamesiah’s excuse was as follows:

“I have a very tough schedule and I would love nothing more than to have a leisurely week in Paris, stroll down the Seine, take my wife out to a nice meal, have a picnic in Luxembourg Gardens,” Obama said, pointing out that he was caught up in dealing with the pressing financial crisis at home.

“Those days are over for the moment,” Obama said, but promised to spend more time in France when he is an ex-president.

“I think it’s very important to understand that good friends don’t worry about the symbols and the conventions and the protocols,” Obama said.

“I think you guys are reading too much into my schedule.”


Obama plays the “I am too busy” card and  “he was caught up in dealing with the pressing financial crisis at home”. What days are over Mr. President??? You did go out to dinner in Paris with your wife, it just happened to not include the President of France. That did not seem to stop him from going out with his wife, for a night out on the town and dinner in Paris. Barack Hussein Obama has much to learn if he thinks that symbols and protocol do not matter. Such as giving the British PM a box of DVD’s and the Queen of England and iPod.

Obama thinks he is above symbols and protocol.  Really, then why did he feel the need to bow to a Saudi King? Trust me, Europe is all about the protocol. Who is being the cowboy who goes against normal convention?

Barack Obama can get nothing right. Because he took such a hit on the embarrassment of dining in NYC at the tax payers expense during a recession, he now over reacts and insults the President of France thinking it will look good that Barack is getting a value meal at McDonald’s rather than dinner with Sarkozy. Unreal.

UPDATE I: King Obama has a WH food tester … from Hot Air. Who knew that this was still being practiced.

AFP confims

 US “taster” tested the food being dished up to President Barack Obama at a dinner in a French restaurant, a waiter said on Sunday.

“They have someone who tastes the dishes,” said waiter Gabriel de Carvalho from the “La Fontaine de Mars” restaurant where Obama and his family turned up for dinner on Saturday night.

I am inclined to agree with Say Anything, exactly how much does the food tester make? Being paid to travel and eat food … Obama or no Obama, where do we apply?

      Hi my name is Red and I am an idiot.I think I know a whole lot but I am just an idiot that worships Rush Limbaugh
      SM: Once again SM allows a comment to show just how stupid and clueless people are. What’s the matter, cannot debate an idea, have to try and insult people instead?

      Who worships Rush? I am able to come up with my own common sense opinion on any matter.

      Poor Jason, born without a brain or a clue. You on the LEFT are a sad, pathetic group of people. You hypocrisy is above anything that exists anywhere. If GWB had done any of this he would have been considered a fool. But because it is the LEFT’s Chosen One, their God … it makes it oK.

      Obama is so typical, actually he is worse than typical. He pretends to be something that he is not. He talks a great game, a dangerous one in fact.

      Barack Obama is the black Jimmy Carter and will be remembered over time as the same failure as President as Carter was. It will take a Republican President like Reagan to once again save America from the social experiment that was the election of Barack Hussein Obama.

      Jason, try actually putting some facts or even an opinion out there next time … if you can strings together a sentence without profanity or insults. Think ya can … doubt it, now crawl back under your rock, troll boy.

      For reasons known only to him, President Obama avoids certain Bible verses:
      Proverbs 19:10 (NIV): “It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury – how much worse for a slave to rule over princes!”
      Also Proverbs 30:22 (NIV) which says that the earth cannot bear up under “a servant who becomes king.”

      John Bible Verses

      Since when was Obama a servant or a slave?

      My understanding is that he was President of the Harvard Law Review!

      seems the media has bought the obama lie of jobs saved and created. there have been no jobs created or saved in my area.
      my son has been laid off from his job since November,08. my daughter is taking classes at the local college in the medical field but, no one will hire her even part time and she is an A student.
      supposedly there are summer jobs opening here but according to the newspaper, you must be disadvantaged. which means black or mexican to get one of these jobs. it a ridiculous lie by the obama administration and no one but the obama owned media is buying it.

      #7 Maybe your children do not have the skills to make it in the real world.Ever think of that?Maybe they are not trying hard enough.Instead of blaming Obama, and the blacks and mexicans they should work on their resume or get additional job skills.I have 2 jobs and work 60 hours a week because thats what it takes.Im not gonna cry about it.Or maybe, just maybe, they are bigots like DADDY DAVE and no one wants to hire them!
