Who cares about France. No matter who wins, they are still going to hate us.

Royal is probably already calling her goons to begin the riots.

Good for them.

Let the riots start, maybe the police will finish them this time.

I am afraid America is going to have to learn the hard way about corrupt socialism, as France has done with Chirac. It is worrysome to see how long it took for the WhiteFlaggers to figure it all out. Socialism DOES NOT WORK, it never has and it never will. Socialism always fails because it cannot pay for itself and maintain a viable economy based on individual productivity...and our own Congressional socialists do not care about what they are trying to do, which is simply regain power, and instill socialism as the backbone of America.....

I don’t think that a crucial number of people in America even know what is being done to them by our socialists, and what the socialists have planned for this country — because all they do is read the leftist MSM. Big problem for us...

Yes we know. FOX has already reported Sarko as the winner. I don’t see things changing with that percentage gap.

No need to be too excited. True, Royal needed to be defeated as she is virulently anti-American and radically socialistic (promises of enormous pay raises and bans on firing, etc.)...but Sarkozy is still Chirac’s boy.

The good news is that Chirac is now gone (and until Sarkozy prostitutes himself - which he will - eligible for prosecution for his bloodshed and bribes) from Office just as are Germany’s Schroeder and Canada’s Martin and Saddam Hussein and every other major anti-Iraq war leader.

...whereas pro-Iraq-War Bush, PM Blair, and PM Howard are still in power.

We care about France. The many hundreds of FReepers who have been posting on these threads and taking great interest in this election.

This is a great opportunity for France. A great day for France, and a great day for Americans. A strong, pro-American France as a friend, ally, and trading partner is very important to us.

In addition, no more “freedom fries” and we can drink French Champagne and wonderful French wines again.

Sorry...you are wrong. I was over there in December for a week and stayed in several French homes. Many, many French citizens are just as fed up with the liberal, socialits, marxist, abetting, corrupt governmental policies in their country as we are in ours.

They are voicing those feelings in the vote today and I believe it will make a difference...they sure hope it will.

Those folks I spoke with, who feel this way, still, to this day, hold the United States in high esteem. I hope we give them reason to continue to do so in our own next election cycle, instead of ourselves turnig to the very thing they are now rejecting.

Sarko is definitely not “Chirac’s boy” . They broke several years ago. Chirac brought him back intop his government because he was the most competent, and the most popular member of the UMP Party.

Sarko was success, in no small due to the fact that he was able to totally unite his Party behind him, with no opposition.

Chirac, in the end supported Sarko, and Bernadette Chirac was very often at Sarko’s side when he appeared at Rallyes.

It’s better for the US if there is a more American-friendly administration in France as opposed to one intent on sabotaging us. Pretty simple why many FReepers care about this.

The reason Royal losing this election should be important to us is because her loss bodes very, very badly for Hillary.

Just imagine if Royal had won. Hillary would go on and on and on in upcoming debates about how France made the “right decision” to elect a female [liberal] President and that the US needs the same thing [a liberal female President] to get things back on track too.

“Who cares about France?”

I do. Despite it’s problems and current politics, France is (or was) a great country and culture. France is part of Western civilization and Western civilization (of which the USA is a part) must stick together against the Islamofascist terrorist war against America, Israel, the Jews and all of Western and Anglo civilization.

Sure, there are many things to dislike about parts of French life and politics, etc., but overall they have added much to world culture. And all Frenchmen are not “cheese eating surrender monkeys”. There are some tough French military.

I admit, much of Europe and the UK are disappointing today, but it’s not over quite yet.

America and the world need Europe and it’s culture and contributions to a more rational world civilization.

We must stick together against Islamofascism and it’s backwards, primitive, barbaric and savage culture, beliefs, behavior, religion and plans for a world caliphate.

Napkin, let's try to wish them well today.

They are electing what is almost a rightwing leader. And one that has considerable courage.

I'd point out that both political parties in this country are pulling for him quietly. And he is on very good terms with our president.

Let's be nice today. Give this Frenchman a chance. He's no Chirac and he's no socialist.

Royal warns..or is this a threat?

"It is my responsibility today to warn people of the risk of his candidacy concerning the violence and brutality that would be unleashed in the country," she said, suggesting that unrest was especially likely in the volatile suburbs that were the site of rioting in 2005.

My view is it is a step. What I don’t know and I suspect the other posters are asking is is he outside the welfare state consensus in Europe. Or will he just continue the slide while being a bit less anti-American?
