President Visiting Monticello

President Obama and French President François Hollande will visit Monticello on Monday, The Hill reports. That’s just one day before Hollande’s state visit to the White House. In a statement, the White House said that “the residence of Thomas Jefferson, one of the United States’ earliest envoys to France, Monticello reflects Jefferson’s affection for the people of France, the long-standing relations between our two democracies, and the shared values we hold dear: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” There is no reason to think that this will be a public event.

  1. This will be a public event in the sense that traffic will be snarled on the south side of town, involving many unwitting members of the public.

  2. Who eats the most cheese? Americans!
    Who surrenders in Vietnam & Iraq & Afghanistan: Americans!
    Who does Homer Simpson look like? A monkey!

  3. Iraq? Did I miss something….?

    France, you have to go back to what, The Battle Of Hastings…but won with Normans who really were Vikings…who did lose in a few superbowls.

    But yes, we will be spending an assload of cash, setting kids free from schools and screwing the traffic, parents etc etc so some ass gabbing French socialist can come and tell his secrets to BO, who cannot even flirt with a blonde German chick at a funeral without getting the stink eye from his SO who is not as pretty as Homers wife.

    But I will hand it to the Fench leaders… they do show up with good looking spouse!

  4. France did not have a worldwide empire by losing every battle. GHW Bush did a better job in Irag than GW Bush, by stopping where he had agreed with the UN to do so. The soldiers on the second Iraq war were betrayed like the soldiers of WWI by their leaders, and did not leave in triumph.

  5. Just to keep things in proper historic perspective…
    “According to the British historian Niall Ferguson, France has participated in 168 major European battles, out of which it won 109, drawn 10 and lost 49, making the country the most successful military power in European history.”
