Number One, He’s French

Posted on | May 7, 2012 | 8 Comments

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.

    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.
