When France opposed the illegal war in Iraq and led the coalition of the unwilling against being suckered – Bush started calling them “Old Europe” and renamed French Fries to Freedom Fries. Now he goes crawling on his hands and knees begging the French to forgive him and give him money and troops to help bail him out in this important election year.
Now Americans are hated everywhere. He has empowered our enemies and alienated our friends. And his stunts like Freedom Fries will cost the lives of more Americans because he hasn’t figured out that if you piss people off they aren’t going to do you any favors.
