After Jeb accurately cited the French Socialist work week of 3-days, but employed it as an insult directed at Marco Rubio, the French were quick to demand an Apology.
Without considering the ramifications, Jeb Surrendered to the French and publicly Apologized for his remark.
It was then that French Officials demanded yet another, Immediate, Apology for Jeb usurping their traditional place in the world and what they consider to be an extremely important part of the French Identity.
While we are waiting to see how the Jeb Campaign responds, makeaneffort contacted several retired Diplomats for comment but none would speak on the record. However, the consensus was Jeb’s total lack of awareness when it comes to one of the many French sensitivities could lead to an International Incident. They also believe it would be worth remembering the French invented Offense originally as a way to pass time. All three agreed if Mr. Bush apologizes yet again there could be no end in sight for this controversy.
Two of the Diplomats we spoke with also offered for consideration the wisdom of electing a President of The United States who Surrenders to the French. The third declined to comment on the fact Jeb was being considered in any way at all before or after this incident.
We will update this post as this story develops.
