Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not GWB, neocon vanguard. GWB is the destroyer, pestilence, considering the pattern of regime adjustment to turn-key economic policy since RR-MT. Sadly, the republic would not let either Mitterand or Chirac die peacefully. If anything, Sarko's purpose is to clear the remaining brush of the welfare state for his successor. In this respect perhaps his methods are Clintonian -- see how he wavers in popular gusts of disapproval. He was pronounced the 68th best dressed person by Vanity Fair magazine just last year. But Sarko has fallen far, fast in best of breed esteem. This is the price he willingly pays. His end 4 years hence forshadows Obama's more than Brown's enfeebled administrations (for UK democracy is moribund. Remember: peenackers always broadcast, to normalize, and their objective is always free capital flow.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
