International Relations with the Obamateur

I have no idea if this is true. But apparently, from the links at the Gateway Pundit, the French press believe it is. And I'm expecting they are as dependable as our MSM.
In his latest faux pas Obama managed to pi$$ off France...
President Obama wrote Jacques Chirac saying he was looking forward to working with the former French president in the coming four years(?)
Monsters and Critics reported:

US President Barack Obama has indirectly praised former French president Jacques Chirac's fierce opposition to the US-led invasion of Iraq, the online edition of the daily Le Figaro reported on Thursday.

In a letter described by Chirac as 'very nice,' Obama wrote, 'I am certain that we will be able to work together, in the coming four years, in a spirit of peace and friendship to build a safer world.'

The use of the word 'peace' was taken to be an indirect reference to Chirac's stance against the US intervention in Iraq, which Obama had also opposed as senator.
Nice. Not only does this piss off an ally, but it makes for another laugh for our enemies. You know if Bush had done this he would have been lambasted by every press organ in the US. But since Obama is their messiah we can expect another pass. (Try googling the news on the subject. M&C was the only one this morning when I wrote this to mention it.)

So let's see, the Obamateur has pissed off England, and now France. Who's next? Probably Australia and then Canada and no doubt Poland. It probably will take him a little longer to get to Germany and Japan. But it is nice to see him trying to get chummy with Iran and Syria.

This just seems way too stupid. But the blogs I've read have links to French News carrying the story. I'm really really hoping this is a joke. (But I won't hold my breath.)
