If the French think Obama is haughty... 

Steven Erlanger has an interesting piece in today's New York Times  talking about Euro frustration with President Obama's foreign policy methods and priorities.

But it was this passage that seemed so funny to me:

"A lot of the problem is the fault of the Europeans themselves, said Hubert Védrine, a former French foreign minister. 'Europe for         Obama is not a priority, not a problem and not a solution for his problems,' he said in an interview here. 'Obama keeps a distance and has a kind of hauteur' with European leaders, Mr. Védrine said. 'But that’s not a sufficient reason for Europeans to act like spectators' as Mr. Obama tries to cope with his challenges. 'I think it’s necessary to help him,' he said."
