Spoiled Children of Divorce

Exemplary Children of Divorce – Nicholas Sarkozy

I’m studying the leaders at the G-8 meeting and have found a Gem. French Prime Minister Nicholas Sarkozy grew up in Splitsville. If no other members are Children of D then this is obviously the reason why there is so little progress in Global Warming issues in my opinion.

Sarkozy’s Father left his Mother and his two brothers in 1959 when Sarkozy would have been around 4 years old. Although successful and wealthy the Father left his first family in difficult financial circumstances. According to Wikipedia the Father remarried twice and had 2 children with his second wife. I don’t know if his Mother remarried.  It sounds like Sarkozy had a strong relationship with one of his Grandfathers.  (Grandparents sure do make a big difference in the Exemplary Child of D’s lives.)

Sarkozy himself is on his 3d marriage. He has 2 sons from his first marriage and one son from his second marriage. He’s attracted to extremely beautiful women apparently and it seems there is a lot of intrigue in his relationships. That alone is qualification for French Citizenship.

Wikipedia describes Sarkozy’s feelings about his childhood and difficult resentments towards his Father:

During Sarkozy’s childhood, his father refused to give his former wife’s family any financial help, even though he had founded his own advertising agency and had become wealthy. The family lived in a small mansion owned by Sarkozy’s grandfather, Benedict Mallah, in the 17th Arrondissement. The family later moved to Neuilly-sur-Seine, one of the wealthiest communes of the Île-de-France région immediately west of the 17th Arrondissement just outside of Paris. According to Sarkozy, his staunchly Gaullist grandfather was more of an influence on him than his father, whom he rarely saw. Sarkozy was, accordingly, raised in the Catholic faith of his household. Nicolas Sarkozy, like his brothers, is a baptised and professing Catholic. Sarkozy also said recently that one of his role models was the late pope John Paul II.

Sarkozy’s father Paul did not teach him or his brothers Hungarian. There is no evidence suggesting that there was an attempt to educate the Sarkozy siblings about their paternal ethnic background.

Sarkozy has said that having been abandoned by his father shaped much of who he is today. As a young boy and teenager, he felt inferior in relation to his wealthy classmates.[12] He suffered from insecurities (his physical shortness of 1.65 m, 5 feet 5 inches, or his family’s lack of money, at least relatively to their 17th Arrondissement or Neuilly neighbours), and is said to have harboured a considerable amount of resentment against his absent father. “What made me who I am now is the sum of all the humiliations suffered during childhood”, he said later.[13]
