WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama has called France's new president-elect to congratulate him on winning Sunday's election.
The White House says Obama told Hollande that he looks forward to working with him on a range of shared economic and security challenges.

Wow, what took him so long....
” Obama calls new French President-elect Hollande “
What was he supposed to call him??
A socialist France is all the more reason to unseat Obama.
France has been socialist forever. This is not news. The Zero has to go, but this is not a change in France’s political landscape.
He probably told him, “I can spend more money than you can! Nyah, nyah!”
They can all go vacation in Cuba while getting the world’s best health care in beds beside Hugo.
Farewell to the fair.
Well, since France is bankrupt too, I doubt Hollande can to anything to pull his emaciated arse out of the fire.
BTW, based on the S&P futures tonight, Ms. Market does not like this. Tomorrow may be an interesting day on Wall Street!
“Bonjour, comrade Hollande. Forward!”
Oh I’m sure they had a good chin wag and a knees up laughing!
....probably Obama’s first thoughts.
"...did the new french president know that he dislocated an ear bone when the phone cord got tangled around his neck as he bowed?"
You’re right about that.
I read this comment:
“Guess Euro elites will never learn. France will have to go down the tubes to learn the simple lesson that whatever you tax, you diminish. Humanity has countless lessons, but the impulse for power trumps experience and memory. You will elect another Socialist with predictable results.”
I would add one word. The impulse for power trumps experience and memory AND logic. I pray all the time we are never so stupid in America, but the left has spent years dumbing down American education, making us forget our roots and founding principles.
Learn from the Welsh. Do what you must to preserve your language, culture and customs. Success in spite of oppression is the best revenge.
Sorry old chap, only Hollandaise.
Obama high-fived Hollande and thanked him for that great sauce he invented.
Reportedly, one of the first things he’s going to do is to impose a 75% tax on the rich.
So, he’s going to take a dying economy, and a dying country, and take it over the cliff a lot faster.
The guillotine should be brought back and used on the people who do the voting in France, since they’re the ones who have brought that country to its knees. If something is not working, doubling down to do more of it, is stupid and suicidal.
But, let’s see if the rich in France are just going to sit idly by and relinquish their wealth to the government. Interesting and dangerous times ahead.

At town hall meeting in Powder Spring, Georgia on Tuesday, Obama said, “It’s embarrassing when Europeans come over here, they all speak English, they speak French, they speak German. And then we go over to Europe and all we can say is merci beaucoup, right?”
How can anyone govern a nation that has two hundred and forty-six different kinds of cheese?
Charles De Gaulle
I sometimes wonder if science and technology weren’t the disease. Progress is evil.
Maybe the cuban doctors can work on his shrinking problem. Maybe prescribe 50 cuban cigars a day?
Wonder if Obama told him he would more 'free' to help; after his re-Election, 2012.
Anytime a 'socialist' wins; it is a loss for our planet. Survival MO's shift; and we know; not for the better.
True; but there are degrees by enlightenment. . .will know more; when we see if Hollande expects the French to 'work' for their supper; and if the women can put their Burqua's back on; as they walk France's streets et al.
I for one, will always stand fore square for progress in the real, not socialist sense.
Earth First! The other planets later.
Hollande ... isn't that some kind of sauce that French chefs smear over a cooked horse?
It should get interesting... on both sides of the Atlantic.
The uncharismatic Mr Hollande, who has never held any ministerial office and is the first socialist to win the French presidency since Francois Mitterrand in 1988, has been an outspoken advocate of rewriting the plans to save the [Euro].
He wants a new preamble written into the new European fiscal pact signed by 25 EU nations to water down calls for austerity measures.
He is demanding a change to strict rules which dictate how much member states can spend, without which most observers believe a new European economic crisis is inevitable.
After his victory he said that one of his priorities was to preserve our social model a reference to Frances generous welfare state.
The new president has pledged to spend an extra 20 billion euros in the years ahead to kickstart the economy and wants to slap a 75 per cent tax rate on those earning more than one million euros a year, or around £850,000.
Hmmm; nothing about preserving the 'cultural' model of France. Can only guess per Hollande; 'burqua's up'!
But don’t dare accuse this cheese eating surrender monkey a Socialist. The DNC nazionale democrat-socialists will haff none of dat talk!
