  • Barack, you sly devil you!

    He woos foreign leaders almost as well as he gets many Americans all hot and bothered.

    "President Obama really found the consensus," Sarkozy told reporters after the meeting. "He didn't focus exclusively on stimulus ... In fact it was he who managed to help me persuade [Chinese] President Hu Jintao to agree to the reference to the ... publication of a list of tax havens, and I wish to thank him for that."

    In her news conference, Merkel noted that "the American president also put his hand into this."
    If the guy can make a French AND German leader all moist and get a Chinese to show his unmentionables, what can't he do?

        All of this should be expected from a good president. We haven't had one in a long time.

          Although it should be noted that finding agreement, even with your enemies, isn't actually all that difficult -- even Neville Chamberlain could do it. The tricky part is finding that agreement without giving away too much in the process, so I'm going to be interested to see what all Barack's given away during this conference.

          Edit: Along that line of thought, I only just now noticed how the article ended:

          The warm words followed weeks of sharp divisions between the U.S. and the United Kingdom, on one side, and France and Germany on the other...
          French and German reluctance ultimately prevailed.
          So the leaders of France and Germany were only too happy to complement Obama on giving them exactly what they had been asking for. And this is what "should be expected from a good President"?

            IMHO we still don't.
