Obama meets with other world leaders in France

Deauville, France (CNN) - President Barack Obama landed in France Thursday for meetings with the leaders of the world's leading economic powers, following a high-profile visit to London.

Obama discussed a range of security and economic issues during a one-on-one meeting with Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev. He was also scheduled to meet with Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan and participate in a full day of talks with other leaders of the Group of Eight nations.

  2. The Day of Financial Reckoning is HERE - The Great Democrat Welfare Society Ends

    So Obama there to brag or lecture others about our 9% unemployment, 1.7 TRILLION dollar deficit (as far as the eye can see), nearly 15 TRILLION dollars in debt, 1.8% yearly growth, sky rocketing food and fuel prices, declining dollar, new Libyan war effort, ...???

    I cannot for one minute believe that any of these other leaders considers what this buffoon has to say seriously. Economically Obama has ben an UNMITIGATED DISASTER for the USA. He's selling socialism while socialism has bankrupted half of Europe. The nightmare must end in 2012 or the country is toast.

    This dude saves the world almost as much as Will Smith.
    In fact, they have the same weird ears! Maybe, that's their secret.
    Go win another Nobel Prize for either killing OBL or saving the global economy.

    WHY are we even talking to the French. We had to bail their country out from German occupation and rule twice. They didn't even put up a fight in WWII. We werent' allowed to fly over their country to get to Gahdafi we had to fly around and do an in flight refuel to get their. Then they didn't want to have anything to do with the Iraq war. So why are we talking to these cowards. Let them mire up in their own conceit. We should have nothing to do with them..... period.
