Bye bye Jacques

I'm fascinated by the remarks of House Foreign Affairs Chairman Tom Lantos:

"I am so glad that the era of Jacques Chirac and Chancellor Schroeder in Germany is now gone," Lantos said to applause.

He said under the successors of Schroeder and Chirac, Angela Merkel in Germany and Nicolas Sarkozy in France, relations with the United States "will take a very positive turn."

Very interesting to me that we have a Democrat praising the new center-right governments of continental Europe. Or as Don Rumsfeld would say, "Old Europe."

Now perhaps Lantos can say something positive about our relationship with Colombia, instead of throwing our South American ally under the bus like Nancy Pelosi did.
