Update: Sarkozy- Obama’s arrogance could endanger the West; Obama has only spoken to McChrystal ONCE since giving him command in AfPak;Iran test firing missiles; French Embassy provides transcript; French President Sarkozy says ‘Obama dreams of a world without nukes..we live in the real world, not the virtual world. And the real world expects us to take decisions’

Update:9/30 – More on Sarkozy’s views of TOTUS as American media finally begins to cover it, albeit in a small way:

That’s right the President of FRANCE thinks Obama is so arrogant it endangers the West, and I agree! GIRD YOURSELF WORLD. Video courtesy of GatewayPundit, go read their entire post!

Update: Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse we find while TOTUS is planning his trip to lobby for the Olympics for his buddies in Chicago, he has only spoken to our Commander on the ground in theatre of war ONCE. Yes ONCE. He has done more interviews than GWB/WJC combined and talked ONCE to our General on the ground.

Malfeasance! Abandonment of his PRIMARY DUTIES! Unreal.

WashingtonTimes has the quote from CBS:

The military general credited for capturing Saddam Hussein and killing the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq says he has only spoken to President Obama once since taking command of Afghanistan.

“I’ve talked to the president, since I’ve been here, once on a VTC ,” General Stanley McChrystal told CBS reporter David Martin in a television interview that aired Sunday.

“You’ve talked to him once in 70 days?” Mr. Martin followed up.

“That is correct,” the general replied.

This revelation comes amid the explosive publication of an classified report written by the general that said the war in Afghanistan “will likely result in failure” if more troops are not added next year. Yet, the debate over health care reform continues to dominate Washington’s political discussions and other issues. On Monday morning the White House announced President Obama will travel to Denmark on Thursday to lobby the International (sp) Olympic Committee to select his hometown of Chicago for the 2016 summer games….

So he has his priorities in order right? And when he steals the Olympics from Lula and Brazil, will Lula bash blue eyed bankers again? GOD BLESS THE TROOPS AND AFGHANI PEOPLE AND GOD SAVE THE WORLD since America is clearly no longer on watch.

The biggest names behind Battlestar Galactica —stars Edward James Olmos and Mary McDonnell and executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick— sat on a panel in the Economic and Social Council Chamber with UN representatives to explore what the show had to say about world issues over its four-season run. Moderator Whoopi Goldberg led the panel through two hours of discussion that touched on race relations, terrorism, gender equality and a host of other issues.One of the UN reps, Craig Mokhiber, even took the opportunity to say to McDonnell, “Shame on you, President Roslin” for her treatment the Cylons in the show, specifically endorsing the use of torture and using dehumanizing tactics toward them. But it was the person next to her, Olmos, who raised the roof. ..

One of the things I love about Roslin is she kicks ass and takes names and doesnt frak with the safety of the fleet, figures the UN disapproves!!

In the most provocative moment of the evening, Olmos angrily declared to the audience that race and racism are illusory concepts, created by oppressors to encourage hostility toward other cultures. “There is only one race, and that is the human race!” he shouted, before inciting the crowd to chant along with him, “So say we all!” over and over, in a moment that paralleled Commander Adama’s inspirational speech at the end of the BSG pilot.

Taking questions from the audience, Moore and Eick revealed some of their creative process, like how the show’s gender neutrality was a natural consequence of their decision to re-imagine Starbuck as a female character. Moore closed with, “We had [the characters] trying to grapple with really complex moral and ethical dilemmas in the guise of a weekly television series about killer robots in outer space.”
