    That's it ? How does that even make the news ? Anybody who knows a bit Sarkozy already knows that. It's not even criticism.

    I can't believe Chirac was voted France's most admired political figure. He was one of the worst president, mostly because he just sat there doing nothing except making grand but useless speeches. Sarkozy was elected because he represented everything Chirac was not, a man of action, ready to make unpopular but necessary reforms and tackle the immigration issues.

    Inappropriate declarations ? I only wish Sarkozy had really put those words into action. There is nothing inappropriate about being tough on crime. That's exactly the kind of attitude that made me hate Chirac. He just a flaccid, senile grandpa who should have quit politics before he became president.
