Number One, He’s French

That could also be numbers two through five, but James Poulos is more imaginative with “Five Reasons François Hollande Is Destined to Fail,” and includes this astonishing fact:

As Gideon Rachman observes, France “is a country where the state already consumes 56 per cent of gross domestic product, which has not balanced a budget since the mid-1970s, and which has some of the highest taxes in the world.”

Read the whole thing. The French excel at three skills: Surrender, collaborating with the enemy, and sodomy. Not exactly a formula for economic success, no matter who’s president.

    Stupid frogs.

  • Ford Prefect

    So just checking; the five things were:

    1. He’s French
    2. He’s now head of a country of Surrender Monkeys
    3. He’s now head of a country of enemy collaborators
    4. He’s head of a country of Sodomites
    5. He’s French.

    What could go wrong?

    This should bode well for the Brits at least it did last time the French elected a socialist to be president. Might help boost French exports too.

  • Quartermaster

    You left out the wine bibbing part.
