Interesting article. Yes, for the French to say “Arrogant” …is making a strong statement about Obama. How about narcissist?

I can understand why someone might hesitate when listening to Obama’s idea (Iranian talks with no preconditions) which undermines the careful strategy of the coalition, in order to make a name for him self. Empty suit or over inflated ego? Either case, it is an unstable situation for all the countries in the region to have a US President that is weak on foreign policies and procedures.
