A Frenchman Is The Most Charismatic Conservative on the Planet!

I never thought that I would be saying this, but the French of all people have gotten themselves a real leader. 

Imagine having a President that is interested in controlling illegal immigration, understands that the EU’s euro currency is overvalued, hurting European economic competitiveness in global trade.

Sarkozy said raising interest rates would prevent people and companies from borrowing and investing. He blamed inflation on rising prices for commodities like oil and said doubling or even tripling interest rates would not bring oil prices down.

“Don’t tell me that to fight inflation, we must raise interest rates,” he said.

He accused the EU’s trade chief, Peter Mandelson, and the head of the World Trade Organizationof pushing trade proposals that Sarkozy said would lead to a 20 percent drop in European agricultural production and a 10 percent cut in its agricultural exports.

“That is 100,000 jobs lost. I will not let that happen,” Sarkozy said.

John McCain needs to take some cues from Sarkozy.  Sarkozy didn’t become popular because everyone agrees with him, he didn’t specialize in “reaching across the isle”.  He’s popular because he says what he thinks and does what he thinks is right without waiting for some focus group to tell him they approve. 

McCain reminds me of Henry Clay of Kentucky, a “Great Compromiser” who lost the election to a leader with a vision.  Today’s circumstances do not require someone who is adept at working within a coalition government, but someone to lead us away from the path of Socialism and Appeasement that Obama is presenting.
