One could also easily argue that one was a little teapot, short and stout. One could demonstrate this by bending one arm to make the "handle", and the other arm into the "spout". This would not, in fact, make it the truth.

hurdboy: Mrtraveler01: France isn't that bad off is it?

S&P already downgraded them (shortly after the US downgrade). Whether or not you believe S&P is another matter.....but nobody in Europe is really in great shape. Eighteen months of a spend-your-way-to-prosperity government won't help matters. The US is a pretty good example of that.


Eh? The US is an example of spending promoting growth. Obama has managed to save US industry, shrink the public sector, and grow the private sector. He saved the US (and your credit rating downgrade was due to the Republicans political shenanigans).

Outside the US he is widely thought to have done an incredible job. But I appreciate that in the US this may not be as important as abortion or something.

In this one case it may not be. France trying to pump-prime it's way out of debt by borrowing yet more may be the straw the break's the Euro's back. Just maybe the EU will halt it's slide towards a socialist superstate and go back to being a free trade area.


and how would life under another Sarkozy presidency be any different?

newsflash: there is very little difference between political parties in France when it comes to economic policies.

I guess Fark Independents have collective amnesia. A couple of years ago Eurostar decided to not order trains from a French company, buying them from Siemens instead. Sarkozy's government tried to sue Eurostar to force it to buy French trains, despite there not being ANY contractural obligations to for Eurostar to do so.

Mrtraveler01: 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.


I'm pretty sure you hear every American politician say that. Before and after which they tell their audience that half of the country wants to destroy everything that America stands for.

T-Servo: How the far-right was the real winner in French elections.

I'm not sure I'd agree, but... I'll miss Carla Bruni.


So the far right was able to pull the losers farther right. Yep, big winners there, manipulating the people who end up with no power. I predict similar "big wins" by the Tea party this fall here in the US.

randomjsa: Trust the French to take a look around at left wing ideas falling apart all around them and decide, hey, we need more of this.


Scandanavia is doing pretty well and they use left-wing ideas.

But you're nothing more than a binary thinking troll so why should I bother?

smooshie: Mrtraveler01: If you think it was bad in France, check out what happened in Greece today:

The neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party could enter parliament for the first time if the exit poll prediction of it winning 6.5 -7.5% of the vote comes to fruition.

wat.

Doe this even matter? No offense to the Greeks, but it seems like their fate is sort of out of their control.

Weaver95: as for the article...if France elects a socialist does that mean we have to invade them?


We've certainly established a precedent that we believe it is our right to do so. And the rest of the world didn't really do much to stop us other than some grumbling here and there. So I really don't see why we shouldn't. You know, for national security.

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.

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

Heh, who'da thunk?


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.
