    [The classic "Do as I say, not as I do" by Obama telling the French to not start raising taxes or increase spending when that is exactly why they voted Hollande in and Sarko out in their bonafide John Francois Kerry "Austerity is just so hard to do" move. The French just wanted to join Barry in his patented "Laissez les bontemps roulez!" governing style. Greece is just so gauche!]

    "Just a tad ironic.

    Via Beltway Confidential:

    President Obama’s spokesman warned the new socialist president-elect of France not to implement his campaign agenda of ending austerity measures, indicating that such a reversal could damage the world economy"

    If only they would realize that cutting spending and cutting taxes is what we all need to do.

    If the mic had been on again behind the scenes, I'm sure we would have heard Obama tell him to wait till after our next presidential election to destroy the economy.

    You can't even make this up. Obama is admitting his economic policies failed.
