The new president in 2013 is going to have one huge mess on his/hers hands. Obama's goals are looking more like he wants to neuter the United States. He sort of reminds me of an obese teenage girl looking in the mirror and wanting to see a slender version of herself. But there is the world of dreams then there is the world of reality. The world of reality must always be addressed first.
So while Obama was racking up more symbolic 'firsts' to quench his ego by chairing the Security Council and passing a meaningless pipe dream from his father, Sarkozy steps up and assumes the title of Leader of The Free World:
“We live in the real world, not the 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.
