Rooting for the French and Germans at the G-20? Wierd….

I never thought that I’d be rooting for the President of France and the Chancellor of Germany to have their way over the President of the United States and the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, but I am glad that the two more conservative of the leaders are not just prodding along with the US and UK. The UK doesn’t have lot ground to stand on, but I have no doubt President Obama is going to do his best to try and push President Sarkozy and Chancellor Merkel into agreements they’re not comfortable with. Stand strong, Mr. President and Madame Chancellor.

I haven’t been a fan of some of Sarkozy and Merkel’s actions. But I am glad they’re opposed to huge amounts of spending to kick start the economy. They at least understand one common conservative principle: spending your way out of debt is not a good strategy!
