    Says the French Prime Minister to Mr. Obama.

    'When people are dying, you must come back from vacation': French foreign minister seems to slam Obama for golfing while Iraq burns

    Obama is on Martha's Vineyard while Iraq undergoes regime change and terrorists slaughter ethnic and religious minorities

    Calling heads of state to lobby participation in humanitarian assistance program – in between golf and fundraising

    Washington Post columnist wrote that the president 'risks fueling the impression that he is detached as the world burns'

    French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius has a message about Iraq for Barack Obama: Get back to the White House and do something.

    'I know it is the holiday period in our Western countries,' Fabius told a radio interviewer Tuesday in France,' but when people are dying, you must come back from vacation.'

    Obama is on a family and golfing holiday in a ritzy neighborhood of Martha's Vineyard but says he will come back to Washington briefly on Tuesday before returning to fun, sun, and more golf.

    I think Obama is mostly detached from world affairs, but this only shows the laziness of the French prime minister. He's in a position to do something, but doesn't.

    The french are a bunch of pussies who would still be under Nazi control if we hadn't came to their rescue. Fuck the french Prime Minister.
