President George W. Bush and German Chancellor Angela Merkel
In his victory speech, Sarkozy said he wanted to tell his "American friends that they can rely on our friendship ... France will always be next to them when they need us."
Gone is Germany’s former Chancellor Gerhard Schröder and leaving is France’s lame duck President Jacques Chirac and foreign relations with America are on the mend.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President-elect Nicolas Sarkozy have both extended a hand of friendship to President Bush.
It is quite ironic how these two countries attempted to unite with Russia to economically trash the United States of America are now under new leadership and now their foreign policy is to distance themselves from Russia and embracing President Bush.
The French have put their money on a politician who has always vowed to radically and swiftly liquidate France's historic mortgage -- the civil servant apparatus, the privileges of teachers and social workers, and the influence of the unions.
During a recent visit to the United States German Chancellor Angela Merkel rejected Senator Hillary Clinton’s request for a breakfast meeting. The German President did not desire to be entangled in US domestic politics which is a clear sign that our allies and not anti-Bush!
The astonishment over Angela Merkel is all the more immense when one considers that she has not only managed to tromp across the world's red carpets without mishaps, but, in the short time of her chancellorship, she has also taken the country back to where it belongs -- at America's side.
To be clear, the world, after experiencing the failed policies of the left, is shifting to the right and as usual the America Left is behind the world movement with its radical movement to the far political left.
America would do good to heed the lessons learned from France and Germany, countries which railed against America with their leftist leaders in place but extraordinarily these countries have rejected those leaders and have come back to the United States in friendship.
This is but a reminder of what a disaster American politics would be in if in spite of the examples of France and Germany the American people elected leftists such as the Democrats.
Democrats hold the same old antiquated ideologies that the European left formerly held and is now running from.
France and Germany’s recent turn to the right will be the remedy to most of their ills and if in 2008 America chooses to turn to the left we will once again hear those immoral words, “How can 57 million people be so stupid!”
But, this time those words will be right!
