American Head of State Holds Summit Conference with French President

Perhaps President Chirac will speak only to a fellow Frenchman.

An Associated Press news story headlined Kerry Tries to Improve U.S.-France Ties describes a recent diplomatic conference between two anti-Americans, the French President and self-anointed Head of State John F. Kerry.

We can all be grateful for Mr. Kerry’s selfless willingness to rush to France just before the inauguration of our President.  So good of him to condescend. 

Mr. Kerry apparently believes that American voters last November endorsed the liberal-socialist foreign policy position that licking the boots of the French is a more urgent matter than fighting the War on Terror, setting up a new Cabinet, and preparing to reform Social Security, the tax code, and the military services.
