French to Obama: Sorry, Mon Ami

As our wonderful friends in Europe turn their backs on the Afghan effort, I went back and looked at the script, from last fall, which clearly stated:

1. The rifts between the U. S. and Euope were Bush’s fault.

2. Therefore, getting rid of Bush will usher in  A New Era of Smart Power Diplomatic Listening.

I know that was the script. I heard it quoted a thousand times before the Election. I just can’t  figure out what’s gone wrong now. Why, why won’t those French folks help now that Le Bush is gone?

 Oh, well, looks like I won’t be eating that beret after all. Can’t recall who said it, but it’s true: Nations don’t have friends; they have interests.
