Funny to see Sarkozy starting to do an U-turn on all the policies France advocated for decades!

Sarkozy starts having cold feet with the Eurozone.

Sarkozy wants to pull out of the Shengen Agreement.

Sarkozy advocates protectionism.

All this goes against what France has be preaching to other countries in Europe, and will be welcome in horror by other European leaders.

Wish the arrogant narcissist dictator we have as a President would do the same.

20 MILLION ILLEGALS and counting here in the U.S.

Gesticulation of a desesperate man (bordering burnout ?)- I would be more worried about this aspect of things than about what he says.

French small businesses who are the heart and lungs of our economy would be hard hit by such measures - proverbially shy regarding exporting, the formality-free eurozone gave them the extended market they needed without having the guts to go for it
