Still less Socialist than Obama, because Obama keeps it a secret.
 
2012-05-06 02:39:07 PM  
Still better than Obama.

The correct headline is "Hollande Conquers France" I just can't find any news sites smart enough to know this though.

Out of all people they had, they elected a farking Norman? WTF is wrong with you people?

Elect a Socialist. Sounds like France has been hitting...

Oooh, an actual socialist. So many Americans have no idea what those are.

Sacre bleu! C'est tragique!

Socialism - the wacky idea that everyone should benefit from an improving economy.

No wonder it'll never work.
 
2012-05-06 02:41:42 PM  
When do they surrender to Spain?

Did they ever stop?

I think a lot of electoral chaos will be sweeping across Europe. Asia will stay on its various courses at least until economic collapse hits China, and naturally nothing ever improves in the USA.

♫ What a wonderful world ♫

Free Radical: Finally, FOX can go back to hating the French again.


They hated France when Chirac was in charge and he was in the same party as Sarkozy. Fox hates France no matter what they do.

Headline flashing on BBC News:

"Sarkozy: Let's be a united and patriotic France"

Won't see any Americans politicians saying anything like that.
 
2012-05-06 02:42:06 PM  
Dammit. OK. Here's mine

France surrenders to the March of History

Why that was not trollish enough for a green, I do not know
 
2012-05-06 02:42:19 PM  
Gotta say this should be fun to watch.
 
2012-05-06 02:42:24 PM  
Good.

Sarcozy is a tool.
 
2012-05-06 02:42:50 PM  
So, French Farkers (or people who simply know more about politics than I do): Did Marine LePen's supporters not vote, or weren't they enough, or what? They sure as hell wouldn't have supported Hollande, right?
 
2012-05-06 02:42:54 PM  
This isn't that weird. The French president in the nineties was socialist.

Maybe France were fans of Greg

Question: What does an actual Socialist leader want as reform? And what changes HAD he already made in France?

I'm American so Socialist is, literally, a bad word here. But I'm curious about countries where it is an actual political platform.

kxs401: Oooh, an actual socialist. So many Americans have no idea what those are.


its really very simple - if you aren't a pro-Jesus republican then you are a dirty atheist socialist. that's the Republican way! which is like the chicago way, only with more tax breaks and less murder.

as for the article...if France elects a socialist does that mean we have to invade them?
 
2012-05-06 02:43:47 PM  
I think anyone who thinks the France/surrenders hurr durr joke is funny surrendered their sense of humor long ago.
 
2012-05-06 02:44:15 PM  
I think at this point they're screwed no matter who's in charge.

I did respect the man's taste when it came to women's posteriors.

/Got nothing.

So... austerity programs not particularly popular.

Heh, who'da thunk?

From the NY Times:

"Analysts have said Mr. Sarkozy will need the votes of an overwhelming majority of Ms. Le Pen's supporters to win. But the latest surveys show the president getting little more than 50 percent of the National Front vote."
 
2012-05-06 02:44:48 PM  
Well so much for the EU the way Germany wants it.

His positions are all on his wikipedia page. Nothing insane as far as I can see, though certainly he'd be a far leftist in America.

France was Socialist before. But now it's Double Socialist.

I'll always remember Sarkozy for giving us this moment, which led to one of my best headlines:

quatchi: So... austerity programs not particularly popular.

austerity programs usually translate as 'f*ck the poor/protect the rich'. i'm sure that sort of plan is wildly popular with around 1% of the population.

leevis: I think at this point they're screwed no matter who's in charge.


I thought France was one of the better off countries in Europe. The only reason they're in trouble is that they own a good bit of the debt in the countries that are actually sucking right now (Italy, Greece, Spain, etc.)

Correct me if I'm wrong though.
 
2012-05-06 02:46:05 PM  
Oh man, this and the election in Greece are going to have huge ramifications for Europe. Maybe they'll reject austerity and bring the financial you of cards down. I can only hope.

cman: Out of all people they had, they elected a farking Norman? WTF is wrong with you people?


Hey at least this time they didn't just burn the city and announce their over-lordship. The really important question here is whether the new guy's wife is hot.

/I'm betting that's a big no
 
2012-05-06 02:46:12 PM  
Well, the euro is farked.

Mrtraveler01: I thought France was one of the better off countries in Europe.


Depends on the metric. I mean, they are a large country so they have a lot of stuff, but they do have very high unemployment and they have serious social problems.

kxs401: Oooh, an actual socialist. So many Americans have no idea what those are.

if europe implodes, that'll screw over the US (and eventually China). this would not be good for any of us.

Hollande makes Obama look like a hardcore Tea Partier, but Fox will still treat them exactly the same.
