Obama in France : Live Report (4)

Publié le

16.48 p.m.

He is on his way to the Elysée... But he is very late : he was supposed to arrive at 2.45 p.m.
What happened ? Was it intentional : he probably wanted his visit to be as short as possible...

But, don't worry, we won't resent him...
On TV, all the journalists are speaking of "a new Kennedy" : they have nicknamed him : "the black Kennedy". Do you know we have always been fascinated here by the Kennedy myth? But really, I don't understand the comparison...

What strikes them too is the presence of so many American reporters : dozens of buses were waiting for them at the airport. Just like a presidential trip...

And the plane ! It's incredible to see that : his slogan ; his logo...

However, I notice that apparently, Obama will avoid any contact with the French public. No cheering crowds as in Berlin for the moment...

The Black Kennedy? Senator Kennedy had many more years of experience in the Senate than this always running for something man before Senator Kennedy ever ran for the Presidency. I have enough French blood in me to believe that the French of today know the difference between substance and empty Image. Barack Obama is a political hologram. We will defeat him in the fall for the sake of my country AND France!
