Using Sarkozy Against Obama
The RNC’s research arm, not distracted by scandal, is still firing away at its target. Today’s best oppo dump: a bunch of quotes (and reported quotes) from French President Nicolas Sarkozy. To wit:
Sarkozy Mocked Obama’s Naïve Approach To Nuclear Weapons, Telling United Nations “We Live In A Real World Not A Virtual World.” “Nicolas Sarkozy, the French president, came close to mocking his American counterpart for the good intentions, which Mr Obama had heralded as an ‘historic’ step towards nuclear abolition, even though it set no specific targets or fresh mandates. ‘We live in a real world not a virtual world… And the real world expects us to take decisions. President Obama dreams of a world without weapons … but right in front of us two countries are doing the exact opposite.’” (Alex Spillius, “UN Leaders Back Nuclear Resolution But Grow Impatient With Iran,” Telegraph, 9/24/09)
And it goes on.
