You’ve Been Jacques’d

All those discussions of cheeseburgers and cordial walks on the beach in Sea Island may have given a false impression. It seems that Chirac and Bush aren’t quite good buddies again.

From Chirac on Bush comments about Turkey joining the EU: “If President Bush really said that in the way that I read, then not only did he go too far, but he went into territory that isn’t his,” Chirac said of a remark Bush made over the weekend.

“It is is not his purpose and his goal to give any advice to the EU, and in this area it was a bit as if I were to tell Americans how they should handle their relationship with Mexico.”

Concentration is important!
