Obama Thanks French President for New Orleans
French President Francois Hollande is keeping most of this week's state visit to the U.S. around the Potomac, but our own prez was sure to give a nod to the end of the Mississippi. During remarks at an arrival ceremony welcoming Hollande Tuesday, President Barack Obama thanked the French for New Orleans.
Speaking next to Hollande on the White House's South Lawn, Obama reflected on the U.S.-France relationship, "from a field in Yorktown to the beaches of Normandy to the mountains of Afghanistan."
Obama then ran down the more physical things that the U.S. can thank L'Hexagone for providing.
"This capital city, designed by (Pierre) L'Enfant," he said, speaking of Washington, D.C. "Our Statue of Liberty, a gift from France."
Then came our turn, indicating that perhaps First Lady Michelle Obama is still pushing for her dream trip.
"And something many Americans are especially grateful for, New Orleans and the French Quarter," Obama said.
Some laughter then emerged from the assembled crowd.
In the highly-choreographed activities of the state visit, New Orleans won't go unrepresented. Mayor Mitch flew to D.C. to attend a luncheon in honor of the French President that was hosted by Vice President Joe Biden. Secretary of State John Kerry and other dignitaries were also expected to attend.
As for the food, the assembled guests also have New Orleans to thank:
While in D.C., Landrieu is also holding meetings on New Orleans' murder reduction strategy and the development of Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport's new terminal, his office said. He will return to New Orleans on Wednesday.
