chuck_the_tv_out knows French socialists are at least better than Democrats:
No surprise, but I’ll never trust exit polls after 2004. The socialist won’t roll back the lower retirement age or other money saving things though. At least in france, the socialist actually wants france to survive. Unlike here where the leftists hate this country.soycd blames the wellfare voters:
Looks like the welfare voters came out and voted in large numbers. It will be like watching a fiery vehicle crash for the next couple years. Hopefully Germany lets them burn.UKrepublican has a different take:
As a very conservative Brit, I can only express my delight that the odious Sarkozy has lost..... Just like Merkel and pretty much every other Euro leader, he was happy to sell his people and everyone else to the disgusting Euro project. Britain is going to be the resistance to the socialist disease once we get rid of Cameron.I can't tell if his anti-Frenchness is from being a Freeper, or just British.
jonatron infers that every single French Muslim musta voted socialist:
"Islam is the second-most widely practiced religion in France behind Roman Catholicism by ... with an estimated total of 5 to 10 percent of the national population." - Wikipedia SARKOZY HEADING FOR LOSS TO SOCIALIST 53.3-46.7Verginius Rufus is sure racism is involved somehow, he's just looking for where:
Maybe it's anti-Hungarian prejudice. Sarkozy is Hungarian on his father's side. Marie Antoinette was the daughter of the Queen of Hungary and they guillotined her. On his mother's side he's part Greek Jewish and part French Catholic by descent, according to his Wikipedia biography.B.O. Plenty knows socialism never works:
Well, what the hell.... ... maybe Socialism will WORK this time....??except Norway, Sweden and all the other socialist democracies all over Europe?
jimbo123 hopes for a Nazi resurgence:
Maybe the germans will send in the panzers again.nutmeg has a bunch of crazy opinions:
This is highly disturbing... I haven't been to France since 1997, but was hoping to visit perhaps in the next year or two. Looks like France is off the list for us for the foreseeable future. Idiot French voters. I'm worried about the Jewish community in France, among other things there... :-( When does the Socialist and his floozy take the oath of office?Paragraph 1 - can't visit France anymore.
Paragraph 2 - France is Nazis now
Paragraph 3 - I also hate the new First Lady.
Paladin2 laments he's going to have one lest cudgle to beat Michelle Obama with:
Too bad, I’ve enjoyed the various pics of Carla and the 1st Wookie.grumpygresh hopes that this crashes US markets:
A big domino has fallen for the Left. The markets will roil; the Iranian situation will also become more precarious as France moves towards the radical Islamic position. A weaker and unstable EU should also increase the chance for a US market decline and collapse thereby increasing the likelihood hussein’s defeat. J’espere.Cincinna explains this new guy is a sekret Nazi:
Marechal Pétain, a fascist, was the Nazi collaborator who headed the Vichy government. It was his young assistant, François Mitterrand, who was responsible for forcing French Jews to wear the yellow Star of David, then supervised the deportation of French Jews to Nazi death camps. After the Allied victory in Europe, Pétain was tried and executed as a traitor. Mitterrand hid his past, went over to the left and the Socialist Party, and the rest is history.princeofdarkness knows the Muslims are coming:
France: A Sharia-state in 5-10 years. With this new Socialist, I’d give it 2-3 years at best.
