    Out with the dwarf ! (French presidentials)

    Postby lotek » 08 May 2012 06:04

    Most of you won't relate much to this piece of news, but finally France got rid of that embarassment of a leader it had chosen for itself...
    Bunch of arrogant racist bigots, good fucking riddance !

    nb
    I do know that in a biparty situation, the alternative is rarely any better, but at least the new one has to pretend he cares about the people.

    To be fair, Sarkozy himself was shocked. He knew what the polls were saying. He reads the papers and watches the television – or at any rate employs people to do it for him. So Sunday’s truth had been staring him in the face for days, even weeks. Yet, as his rancorous TV debate with Hollande confirmed, he saw himself as France’s elected monarch right up until the final hours and was mentally unprepared for the fact that the Bastille was about to be stormed again.

    It was the same 31 years ago for Valery Giscard d’Estaing – the last French president to be thrown out of the Elysée and a man, if it is possible, even more arrogant than Sarkozy. Both men should have known what was happening, but each was deceived by his own rhetoric. Ask not for whom the tumbrels roll; they roll for thee.


    right on, right on.

    The daily show with John stewart was poking fun at all the elections (france, russia, greece) he asked of the french leaders, why do all these middle aged fellows have such hot girlfriends or wives? i thought that was interesting, otherwise, I knew little to nothing about French political landscape.

    Hope your happy with your new leader, we are up to bat here in november with not much better of choice, a liberal socialist elite brainiac, vs a cardboard cut out figure.

    I'd like to be confident but I doubt from the start any system that doesn't hold its politics accountable for their actions...
    It's just that NS was a proper douche and the embodiement of everything I dislike about those people. He played on fears and hates to further his agenda and didn't even try to pretend.

    At least Hollande is supposed to be a socialist, so hopefully we'll see a difference with the dream world of the right wing, full of absolutes and enemies.

    But then again, I left France partly because of the brave new world that was being put in place, and now I'm away I have no immediate intention to go back though, left or right won't change the fact that as much as I like France, it lacks fundamental pragmatism on all subjects.

    (for example most people now wil have done quite a few different jobs in order to earn a living. In France recruiters will ask you why the unstability, when elsewhere they will recognize someone ready to to whatever is necessary to work, and of course the fact that nowadays only a rare few stay in the same job forever_and you'd have to be blindingly stupid not to understand that)

    EDIT TO ADD
    not sure about the hot gf, but carla bruni might have been once but the scalpel has taken its toll on her... and DSK didn't know they were prostitutes because they were naked.

    I listen. But there's no way I could vote for Obama in good conscience.

    If a decent indy pops up I'll consider that.

    I'd now consider a move to France.

    I've seen reports of US news where they said this election could have drastic consequences for the economy (of the USA).
    Is it because socialist means commie ?

    I never thought our little country could have any effect on anything (apart from a few three eyed fishes in Mururoa)

    They're afraid y'all will repeal the austerity measures and the EEU market will crash, affecting ours.

    I'm not really sure what the new president's stance is on that, my main focus was to get rid of Sarkozy before he succeeded into handing over France to the far right...

    Merkel is bound to go if I understood things correctly, so it seems those deals can be rewritten.
