Schwartenberg. Schwartenberg? Schwartenberg!
So, maybe it wasn't de Gaulle after all.
Apparently, we doubt the Esquire at our peril.
According to Mona Charen, Jan. 14:
Prince Felix Schwartenberg of Austria was asked in 1848 how his country would respond to Russia's help putting down a Hungarian insurrection. "Austria," he replied, "will astound the world with the magnitude of her ingratitude." ....
Confer The Stunning French?
Today [Nov. 23, 2004] is the birthday of Charles de Gaulle, the French general and president (1890-1970) who allegedly told Winston Churchill, regarding the aid and efforts that the Americans and British had provided for the liberation of France from her Nazi overlords: We shall stun you with our ingratitude.
"But it sounds like De Gaulle."
