Sarkozy to France; Drop Dead

The French President boards the straight talk exprès:
"France has been asleep for the past 25 years... We have a difficult international context, all the more reason to accelerate reforms," Sarkozy said during the one-hour and 40 minute interview marking his first year in office.

"Of course, I have made mistakes," he said, adding that he and his government had not sufficiently explained reforms.

....Sarkozy lamented that previous governments had lacked the courage to go far enough and had brought reforms to a grinding halt at the first sign of resistance.

"In France, there is always a good reason to do nothing, always someone who is unhappy," the 53-year-old president said.
