President Franklin Roosevelt’s plan to govern France was given so much credence that US occupation dollars were printed. Meaning that, despite over 50, 000 Frenchmen dying fighting the Germans & Italians and approx. 1.5 million French soldiers fighting alongside the British and the Americans until the very end of the war, our American allies, who only joined the war effort 2 years into the war, sought to treat us more harshly than the Germans had treated us: When Roosevelt Planned to Govern France. Not only were the American people true to themselves and quick on the trigger – the American electorate got behind Bush without batting an eye or giving it a thought – but the American people also elected to mock and ridicule one of their most faithful allies for refusing to go on an unwarranted and unjustified blood feud.
It is a “deer in headlights” expression. It means he’s afraid of being exposed as a fraud. He has no choice but to lie, in order to keep his lips planted on his boss’s butt. It doesn’t bother him to lie, as we can see by the size of this whopper, but it bothers him to be exposed as a liar, and this lie is so big that it can’t be covered up. It’s the equivalent of a loud, wet fart. No one didn’t notice. As most people know, the French are an arrogant nation and exceedingly proud of all their accomplishments. The problem is that Americans are just as arrogant, with the added bonus of being quite a bit more ignorant. As such, when two proud and arrogant people come into contact, antagonism is to be expected.
