Obama to meet with Sarkozy

Washington (CNN) - U.S. President Barack Obama will meet with French President Nicolas Sarkozy at the White House on January 10, according to a White House statement released Tuesday.

France is assuming the presidency of the G-8 and G-20 economic groups in 2011.

Obama "looks forward to working with President Sarkozy to sustain the global economic recovery and create jobs," the White House statement noted. "The two presidents will also discuss a broad range of current foreign policy and security issues."

    Interesting. All these world leaders have suddenly been making surprise visits to Afghanistan and now meeting up with each other. Not my first rodeo........something is brewing.

    Hopefully Sarkozy can educate our inexperienced and incompetent president on how to creat jobs. He hasn't shown he knows one iota about it up to now.
