"President Obama will join other G8 leaders today at the posh, French seaside resort of Deauville. On the agenda: proposed global regulations for the Internet, post-tsunami Japan, and military escapades in North Africa. Bizarrely absent from the top priorities listed by hosting head of state Nicolas Sarkozy is the most urgent issue of all: the need to rein in massive government over-spending and debt. ... It all provides a rather tumultuous backdrop for Mr. Obama’s trip to the G8 Summit. But he’s not the only participant facing a bumpy ride." (05/25/11)
