More Buffoonery… Obama Insults Sarkozy on the Birth of His Daughter (Video)

More Smart Power…
What was meant to be a joke resulted in a major insult. Barack Obama tried to be funny at the G20 this week but nobody laughed.
Obama told his global audience,

“I want to make mention that this is our first meeting since the arrival of the newest Sarkozy, and so I want to congratulate Nicolas and Carla on the birth of Giulia… And I informed Nicolas on the way in that I am confident that Giulia inherited her mother’s looks rather than her father’s, which I think is an excellent thing.”

Nobody laughed.
Here’s the video with some rude Frenchman talking over Obama.

The Washington Times reported:

President Obama came, he saw, he insulted.

“Obama insults Sarkozy,” blared the headline on one French website, taking umbrage at Mr. Obama’s wayward remark at the G-20 summit here about the physical appearance of French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Mr. Obama thought he was making a gentle joke about Mr. Sarkozy, host of the summit, when he congratulated Mr. Sarkozy and wife Carla Bruni on the birth of their baby daughter on Oct. 19. Instead, Mr. Obama caused a minor international incident.

“I want to make mention that this is our first meeting since the arrival of the newest Sarkozy, and so I want to congratulate Nicolas and Carla on the birth of Giulia,” Mr. Obama told reporters shortly after his arrival at the G-20, with Mr. Sarkozy at his side. “And I informed Nicolas on the way in that I am confident that Giulia inherited her mother’s looks rather than her father’s, which I think is an excellent thing.”

He added, “And so now we share one of the greatest challenges and blessings of life, and that is being fathers to our daughters.”

Mr. Sarkozy, who is said to be very conscious about his looks, did not appear greatly amused by the comment, and some observers who attended the meeting said Mr. Obama’s remark fell flat.

    This is more of the “smart” diplomacy we were promised. Truly, this man/child is socially inept. He seems to be the only one who laughs at his “jokes” – kind of like his “special olympics” “joke” on the Tonight Show.

    Winning friends, and influencing people — that’s our President Jug-Ears.

  • dnb

    The French seem to be in need of a sense of humor. This is a very usual remark on the birth of a child; not an insult to the father, but a compliment to the mother. Nothing to see here; let’s move on to something important.

  • Annoyed In Illinois

    This comment about a man’s looks came from someone who has:

    1) jug ears,
    2) purple lips
    3) a notable speech problem when pronouncing words ending with “s”,
    4) speckled gray and black hair,
    5) a nose wide as his mouth,
    6) a constant air of stale cigarette smoke about him,
    7) a outsized skull that makes him a candidate for someone’s bobblehead day,
    8) somewhat of a drinking problem, and

    has a wife who looks like her face was mashed at birth and the offended tissue and cells landed down in her hips.

    Just another day for the most damaging and pathetic person to ever occupy the Oval Office. And to think we regarded Clinton as the scummiest low-life of them all.

    He’s “confident” ( oh, that’s re-assuring) ‘that she inherited her mother’s looks”. No wonder tha joke fell flat. The smartest man that ever lived now has the power to determine what a newborn infant will look like. Is that kinda like being confident that spending 787 billion dollars will keep un-employment below 8%, or that Solyndra is a great investment? Wonder if he can predict this, ONE TERM PRESIDENT, buddy.

    Dear God an embarrassment once again. We only have little over a year to put up with this lack of chrism, lack of etiquette, lack of the skills it takes to represent America with \moral character.

    I was listening to Newt and Herman speak tonight and Obama could never compete with their intellect.

    Charm and wit was Reagan’s strong points. No comparison has Obama. And tonight the charm and wit of Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich was on point, struck a profound difference in the horrible choice Americans choose in ’08.

    Once this nation has made the correct decision to vote out Obama, the confidence and respect the Americans will have and the other nation will in America.

    And was that referring to Black men who leave wife and kids at home then to go on welfare row.

    I have discover that Obama lacks confidence. And this is the reason why he doesn’t speak well in public settings. His teleprompter is of utmost importance and essential tool in his arsenal.

    Yet, even with that HIGH POWERED friend, one he couldn’t be without, didn’t seem to save him. BAD TELEPROMPTER, BAD!!

    From The Telegraph:

    “Sarkozy appeared to appreciate the joke, breaking into a broad smile – a welcome change after days of grimacing over Europe’s economic debacle. ”

    “Despite the gravity of the situation the joke briefly managed to break the tension at the G20 meeting in Cannes, with other world leaders, including the German chancellor Angela Merkel and Prime Minister David Cameron joining in the laughter.”

    You guys are the buffoons.

  • Bonanza driver

    Sarkozy, Merkel and the other european heads of state are still trying to figure out how the nation that won WWII and the Cold War is now led by mocha colored femme bot named Hussein. It is quite disconcerting I’m sure…We are currently the joke of the world…

    I really can’t stand the way Barky always uses people’s first names to try and make things appear so personal and unofficial. Instead, he just looks like the retarded sociopath that he is who can’t mimic the thoughts and actions of a normal person. It’s pathetic.

    But this still doesn’t compare to when he rapped that toast to the queen over the pleasant rhythms of God Save the Queen. That was a true classic of diplomatic buffoonery. Even Shrillary was impressed overcharged.

Go back and read the article for the quotes from the majority of French sources that called the so-called “joke” an insult. Leave it to our supposedly “smart” president to try and make a joke that results in an international incident. More “smart diplomacy” ??? — more like another episode of the gaffe-tastic duo of Barack & Biden – or Dumb & Dumber.

  • Patty

    It is very difficult for Obama to give compliments, if you all haven’t noticed.

    And this has some deeper and physiological meaning for Obama. I do believe his childhood was rough. And he is now using this to act tough with Congress and to applied a compliment has not been his specialty.

    WMAL EXCLUSIVE: Former Clinton Accuser Kathleen Willey Throws Her Support Behind Herman Cain

    Amanda Gaines

    November 5, 2011

    WASHINGTON — Kathleen Willey, a former White House aide during the Clinton administration who accused the former President of sexually assaulting her, says she will support GOP frontrunner Herman Cain in the next presidential election.

    Cain, one of the most popular choices for Republican nominee in the 2012 elections, has been fighting sexual harassment accusations from anonymous accusers for the past few weeks. Willey says much of the news media is blowing the allegations against Cain out of proportion, while Willey’s accusations against Bill Clinton were largely covered up…

    Dave-O, there was only one cited French website. If you get your news from the Washington Times, I am not surprised.

    Iraq is now lost, and it’s Obama’s fault
    Charles Krauthammer
    National Columnist
    Posted: Saturday, Nov. 05, 2011

    WASHINGTON Barack Obama was a principled opponent of the Iraq War from its beginning. But when he became president in January 2009, he was handed a war that was won. The surge had succeeded. Al-Qaida in Iraq had been routed, driven to humiliating defeat by an Anbar Awakening of Sunnis fighting side-by-side with the infidel Americans. Even more remarkably, the Shiite militias had been taken down, with American backing, by the forces of Shiite Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. They crushed the Sadr militias from Basra to Sadr City.

    Al-Qaida decimated. A Shiite prime minister taking a decisively nationalist line. Iraqi Sunnis ready to integrate into a new national government. U.S. casualties at their lowest ebb in the entire war. Elections approaching. Obama was left with but a single task: Negotiate a new status-of-forces agreement (SOFA) to reinforce these gains and create a strategic partnership with the Arab world’s only democracy.

    He blew it. Negotiations, such as they were, collapsed last month. There is no agreement, no partnership. As of Dec. 31, the American military presence in Iraq will end.

    And it’s not as if that deadline snuck up on Obama. He had three years to prepare for it. Everyone involved, Iraqi and American, knew that the 2008 SOFA calling for full U.S. withdrawal was meant to be renegotiated. And all major parties but one (the Sadr faction) had an interest in some residual stabilizing U.S. force.

    Three years, two abject failures. The first was the administration’s inability, at the height of American post-surge power, to broker a centrist nationalist coalition governed by the major blocs – one predominantly Shiite (Maliki’s), one predominantly Sunni (Ayad Allawi’s), one Kurdish – that among them won a large majority (69 percent) of seats in the 2010 election.

    Vice President Joe Biden was given the job. He failed utterly. The government ended up effectively being run by a narrow sectarian coalition where the balance of power is held by the relatively small (12 percent) Iranian-client Sadr faction.

    The second failure was the SOFA itself. The military recommended nearly 20,000 troops, considerably fewer than our 28,500 in Korea, 40,000 in Japan and 54,000 in Germany. The president rejected those proposals, choosing instead 3,000 to 5,000 troops.

    A deployment so risibly small would have to expend all its energies simply protecting itself – the fate of our tragic, missionless 1982 Lebanon deployment – with no real capability to train the Iraqis, build their U.S.-equipped air force, mediate ethnic disputes, operate surveillance, and establish the kind of close military-to-military relations that undergird our strongest alliances.

    The Obama proposal was an unmistakable signal of unseriousness. It became clear that he simply wanted out, leaving any Iraqi foolish enough to maintain a pro-American orientation exposed to Iranian influence. Message received. Just this past week, Massoud Barzani, leader of the Kurds – for two decades the staunchest of U.S. allies – visited Tehran to bend a knee to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

  • Matt


    Maybe we shouldn’t have invaded a country without understanding the history or politics.

    This ending is inevitable whether we leave this year, next year or in 10 years. Krauthammer initially believed this war could be won in less than a year. And now that the inevitable is happening he is more than willing to parse the blame.

  • Matt


    The Democrats in Congress supported it because of politics and most of them were no more educated on the area than the Bush administration. But there were plenty of principled liberals who opposed it on the grounds that there was no end game. There was a strong belief that the Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds would not be able to form a stable coalition government and it seems they were right.

    He’s done a good share of bowing to some. He’s joined in lawsuits against our own states with others – inviting that foreigner to come to our Congress and sh#t all over the US to standing ovations from America-hating dems.

    Barky only treats traditional allies of the US (which I don’t include the French in, but many do) like sh#t. He prostrates the US to any enemy of America … in a sort of a submission thing … and he just loves to make a fool of himself in order to denigrate and degrade the office of the Presidency. Anything to destroy our culture, systems and institutions. That’s all Barky’s ever been about.

    Any self-respecting nation would have had such a person wearing an orange jumpsuit long ago.

    You’ll notice that every great speaker will loosen up the crowd with a joke. It gets everyone in a good mood, and everyone is kinda on the same wave length. It’s just something that some people do, that is, those who can. Obama has horrible timing, horrible joke choice. He makes jokes as dignitary to dignitary like he’s in a sports bar juking around with his beer drinking buddies making a joke like guys do about the other guys looks. The joke was suppose to be that Obama was glad his daughter takes after her mom because her father is to ugly, ha, ha. You know how it’s supposed to go. Except the President of the United States doesn’t make jokes about how ugly the other guy is…..ever! That’s something his young staff people do, not the President. He’s supposed to be above all that. And his young staff people wouldn’t even do it around the President either. They would do it with each other at the bar that night, but not on Air Force One, or especially in some executive meeting. But then everyone is embarrassed to death when this man child President does it, it’s not even funny, it’s humiliating and insulting.

    Obama goes around the world cutting America down to all our enemies, gets laughed out of all these G8 and G10 meetings with his stupid ideas that are obviously failed attempts at blowing smoke up the dresses of the other industrialized nations, and makes bad taste jokes in front of all these dignitaries, sends cd’s of his speeches to the Queen of England, sends the Winston Churchhill bust back to Great Britain, and don’t think for a second if Obama never once thinks about what the other countries of the world feel about the choice for President of the people of America. Because after all we’re the one’s who picked him. Well, about half of us did, but the people of the world don’t really care about which half of the American’s voted for this fool.

  • WillofLa

    American’s, please vote this man out of office in 2012, just so that maybe we’ll have a couple of people left on the Earth left who like us for some reason. It sure wouldn’t be because we did a good job picking Presidents, you know?

    Patty with a y!

    The number of Democrats and Republican who were in favor of invaded Iraq was major at the time. When decided to leave it was agree upon in 2011 provided that the commanders felt that the Iraqis were trained and in shape enough to carry on for themselves. Discussions seems to wane when Obama came into office with the leaders in Iraq and now, it will not be a Victory if we compromise with Al Queda or the Muslim Brotherhood ready to come in and take it over. We have many troops in many nations to this day.

    This war can’t be in vain, even if you and others feel it is time to go. I believe in hearing from the commanders.

    And this is Obama grave mistake. And here is an example of Obama socialist and radical views:

    General Fired Over Karzai Remarks

    KABUL, Afghanistan — A senior American general stationed in Afghanistan has been fired for criticizing President Hamid Karzai in a published interview.

    The NATO and American commander in Afghanistan, Gen. John R. Allen, announced in a press release on Saturday that he was dismissing Maj. Gen. Peter Fuller, the deputy commander for programs at the NATO training mission in Afghanistan, effective immediately. “The decision follows recent inappropriate public comments made by Maj. Gen. Fuller,” General Allen said.

    The statement was issued early Saturday morning in Kabul, which was still Friday in the United States, where General Fuller had been on a speaking tour. It came shortly after a Thursday interview with the two-star United States Army general was published by the news Web site Politico.

    General Fuller was responding to remarks made by President Karzai a week earlier in which he told a Pakistani interviewer that Afghanistan would come to Pakistan’s aid if attacked by the United States.

    “Why don’t you just poke me in the eye with a needle! You’ve got to be kidding me,” General Fuller said. “I’m sorry, we just gave you $11.6 billion and now you’re telling me, ‘I don’t really care?’ ”

    General Fuller also described President Karzai as erratic and inarticulate.

    Obama has had a resounding success in Iraq – he has been victorious, not as a US Commander-in-Chief, but as an Islamofascist who is handing Iraq over to the Iranian Ayatollah. All of the upheaval of the past few years in the middle east has been carried out according to Obama’s plan. Just yesterday his administration, via Hillary/State Dept. announced that “we” will be satisfied with the Muslim Brotherhood being in control of Egypt.

    I always enjoy reading your posts!

    The agreement was not to leave in 2011 if the commanders felt they were in shape to take care of themselves. The agreement was to leave in 2011. What the commanders think is irrelevant.

    Iraq is now lost, and it’s Obama’s fault

    And read top post of article posted #43

    It didn’t have to be this way. Our friends did not have to be left out in the cold to seek Iranian protection. Three years and a won war had given Obama the opportunity to establish a lasting strategic alliance with the Arab world’s second most important power. He failed, though he didn’t try very hard. The excuse is Iraqi refusal to grant legal immunity to U.S. forces. But the Bush administration encountered the same problem, and overcame it. Obama had little desire to. Indeed, he portrays the evacuation as the fulfillment of a campaign promise.

    But surely the obligation to defend the security and the interests of the nation supersede personal vindication. Obama opposed the war, but when he became commander in chief the terrible price had already been paid in blood and treasure. His obligation was to make something of that sacrifice, to secure the strategic gains that sacrifice had already achieved.

    He did not. After years of allegedly clumsy brutish force, Obama was to usher in an era of not hard power, not soft power, but smart power.

    Which turns out in Iraq to be … no power. Years from now we will be asking not “Who lost Iraq?” – that already is clear – but “Why?”

    Obama’s use of first names for other heads of state isn’t intended to convey familiarity or friendship. It’s a condescension; Obama doesn’t know these people at all nor does he care to, he treats them as one would a servant.

    The specific joke – basically, “thank goodness the child takes after Mama!” – is very American in nature, a peculiarity in which we try to compliment the baby and the mother with a good-natured dig at the father. This is why we have a diplomatic corps: to brief and prepare the President on the cultural niceties as well as the policy status.

    Since we have a career cadre of these people, it’s not their fault. Obama is famous for his indifference and inattention to detail when he is not particularly interested in the subject. He blows off briefings as soon as he begins to get bored and apparently has a very short attention span.

    Unforced error. Normal procedure as practiced for more than a century would have the President’s remarks for an international audience and with a major head of state reviewed by the State Department for protocol. Ad-libbed personal remarks should be avoided at least until one has a strong personal relationship with the counterpart.

    “Watching the video it seems to me that Sarkozy laughed.” what did you want him to do? there is nothing gracious or dignified about obama. maybe sarkozy wasn’t upset by what was
    said [as it kindda’ goes along with the territory] but with the delivery……don’t give up your day job son. some people are painful to listen too and make you wish someone would bring out the hook to get them off the stage.

    “Iraq is now lost, and it’s Obama’s fault….” interestingly bumbles and mumbles may have had no contact – as in any hard pressed dialogue – with maliki to actually be seen as work. maybe
    this has been clarifide which is a distinct possibility since i was out of the loop in world and national affairs for almost a week and have to play catch-up. my own view – if you can’t be bothered to actually put time in with me to settle a matter you don’t want that matter settled and i’m pretty much on my own. sometimes people leave you with the courtesy “well ge together real soon” any you don’t hear from them….words just words.
    [[Iraqi government spokesman Tahseen al Shaikhli said he could not explain the lack of contact between Maliki and top-level Americans. “You’ll have to ask (Obama) why he didn’t intervene before this, or call before this,” he said.]]

  • Obama the community organizer, behaving with all the class he used when he was standing on a street corner shouting through a bullhorn and passing out Marxist literature.

    There is a place for jokes like that. Among a close circle of friends, at a bar, maybe a pickup softball game, but not at a public appearance of heads of state.

    Obama wouldn’t know decorum and propriety if they both walked up behind him and bit him on his skeletal backside.

  • Also, it’s disingenuous to try to defend Obama’s incredibly boorish behavior by saying that Sarkozy smiled. So what? Should he have reached over and slapped Obama? He put the best face on a ridiculous gaffe by our Idiot-in-Chief.

    Just a quibble, the rude Frenchman talking over” is the simultaneous translator English to French for the French audience, not say a reporter talking over the speech, it WAS the speech as fast as the translator heard it.

    ANd “yo, your mother’s so fat/ ugly” banter is NOT appropriate for 1) public diplomatic presentations 2) private diplomatic meetings when you really aren’t onthe close personal terms such joking requires.

  • squeaky

    imagine finding yourself the straight man to a goofy comedian who has no delivery technique and if he did he wouldn’t know how to use it? i would tell o to not give up the day gig but he’s even worse at that. with billy mays gone maybe they can use a hawker [usually on in the middle of the night so no loss].

    “..incredibly boorish behavior by saying that Sarkozy smiled. So what? Should he have reached over..” he kind of looks like “oh God” give me patience. europe probably liked obama more for his weak knees.

  • Island Girl

    Sarkozy’s sons are lookers.

    Come one guys – this is ridiculous. It was a joke. Gateway Pundit is now becoming overwhelmed with it’s own for of Obama Derangement Syndrome (ODS). I have no love for Obama but this is just stupid. There are plenty of things to disagree with Obama about – PLENTY – but now you’re acting mental. Try being professional and deal with the issues. Who really cares what some frog newspaper reported.

    Obama can just send him some DVD’s as an apology. I hear the Queen returned hers.

    a lot of pre-talk, Paul Ryan’s plan being the center of attention,
    the actual Herm Newt ‘discussions’ start about the 15:00 mark…

    hope you enjoy it as much as i did..

    I’m in the mood for some poetry:

    UNDERGROUND by Barky

    Under water grottos, caverns
    Filled with apes
    That eat figs.
    Stepping on the figs
    That the apes
    Eat, they crunch.
    The apes howl, bare
    Their fangs, dance,
    Tumble in the
    Rushing water,
    Musty, wet pelts
    Glistening in the blue.

    Obama working hard to make USA the laughing stock of the world. What an empty Suit!

  • jorgen

    I hope for Obama’s daughters that neither of them end up looking like their parents.

  • The one crying in the wilderness

    Aw mane, that ain’t nothing. That’s a compliment. What real heterosexual male wants to be a pretty boy…none and nada. To the commentators on here blaming Barack, get real. Barack has to be the worst president in history so Bush can’t be. Don’t you know your history.

    Even an Ethiopian carried the cross of the Scepter of Righteousness don’t you know. So Obama and the troubles of colored men in America were already prophesied.

    Mr. Sarkozy, who is said to be very conscious about his looks, did not appear greatly amused by the comment, and some observers who attended the meeting said Mr. Obama’s remark fell flat.

    Quelle Surprise.

  • Cathy Thomas

    You people are truly racist buffoons.

  • bob

    Video w someone talkin over it so you can’t hear for yourself if there was laughter. Incorrect reporting from the racist washingtom times saying Sarkozy was not amusedin contradiction to the reporting from other papers. One anonymous source saying the joke fell flat in contradiction to other reporting. Shake and stir! I didn’t realize it took so much effort from so many to keep you guys happy racists!

  • digitusmedius

    No one laughed except the translator. Obama Derangement Syndrome, is it the cause or the effect of insanity?

  • Gzoref

    Wow, Obama Derangement Syndrome is killing you guys. I thought insulting the French was the highest form of patriotism…except when a Democrat does it I guess.

    Keep winning.

    President Obummer
    Could no one be dumber?
    Yes, he’s quit the drummer
    While all through the summer
    He proved yet again to be droll
    His numbers keep falling
    While congress keeps stalling
    To compromise on anything at all
    Now just in time, and no less sublime
    Are several new witless twits
    So, that’s all folks
    America’s jokes
    All wait in the wings
    While the USA croaks
