One of the nicest moments of the election night.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-z1L7xxmQsU

ok... i've just realised this now... both Thomas Hollande and Jean Sarkozy (the sons) are both very Hot, very attractive men... gah Smiley

and i guess i am just learning about him, sounds like a fun guy Tongue

Jean Sarkozy looks like an arrogant stupid young rich asshole (which is what he probably is). Thomas Hollande looks like a naive lefty student. Two living stereotypes.

Definitely their father's sons then.

Comparison of the 2nd round victories of French Presidents:

1965: De Gaulle - 55.2%
1969: Pompidou - 57.5%

1974: Giscard - 50.81%
1981: Mitterrand - 51.76%
1988: Mitterrand - 54.02%

1995: Chirac - 52.64%
2002: Chirac - 82.21%
2007: Sarkozy - 53.06%

2012: Hollande - 51.63%

Best result: Chirac 2002
Best result under "normal" circumstances: Pompidou 1969
Worst result: Giscard 1974

1969 arguably wasn't "normal". Turnout was dreadful and the runoff opposed two right wingers (the latter explains the former, of course).

Yes, but Poher was a mainstream anti-gaullist right candidate. Le Pen was not "mainstream" by any standards.

Of course. Still I think it's fairer to include only classical left-right confrontations in the "normal" category. Not that it makes the picture any brighter for Hollande. Even more so if you look at the % of registered voters instead of valid votes.

I believe the anti christ will be a socialist, so for him to control europe, he will need socialist governments in place. I believe that we are seeing bible prophecy fulfilled. These people don't want balanced budgets, they don't want austerity, and many don't want to work, they want a nanny government to take care of them, and this is why the anti christ will be so well received. I can see his campaign slogan now, TRUST ME, I WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU, it will require a little mark though, in your hand or forehead. I believe he will confiscate the wealth of the developed countries, and the wealth left behind by raptured saints. THis will cause commerce to prosper, as the Bible says. Just imagine the stimulus effect this would have. I believe we might already know this man, although I don't have a clue who he is.

... Are you kidding me... i was going to report this, as it is extremely offensive to me as a Socialist/Social democrat but i've decided to let it be as the rediculousness of your comments will cause most of us to just laugh or shake our heads. I am hoping that this was intended to be ironic or sarcastic, but yikes.
... didn't we have an anti-christ already? Oh ya wasn't he a Nazi... an extreme right-wing facist capitalist? Tongue
If you can't have an adult conversation without bursting into Falwell then please go, i'm sure their is a religious zealot message board somewhere (do ppl still say message board? lol)

You clearly don't know King.

One doesn't need to know him to see the post's wit. The three last sentences should make anyone understand...

Yeah, it was a nice moment. But only because it proved that journalists, especially those on France 2, are useless idiots who are entirely and beyond useless. Last night was about as ridiculous as Wolf Blitzer getting high off the Minnesota caucus sites.

What I really wonder is : would Sarkozy have won with one week more ? Or would the voters have settled with this standing ? Just thinking to it makes me shudder.

You guys are exagurating it. It always gets closer the closer you get to election day. Had the election been a week from now the campaign would have began a week later and we'd still have the same result.

EDIT: Although it is an intresting trend, if it continues Hollande will be down to single digits by the next election. Tongue

I'm all in favor of temporary banning Antonio until after legislative election. Otherwise, he'd kill us with his pessimism.

Jon Huntsman would have tied with Mitt Romney in the NH primary.

One more week... but it wasn't. This is just silly.

Well, I noticed something I missed on election night.

Hollande won Basse-Normandie (!), won Calvados quite easily, was very close in Manche and managed to win a circonscription in Orne (!).

Manche is especially a very bad result for the right and I don't know really why.
Bad, OK, but that bad...

I don't think the only fact Cazeneuve was one of the four spokesmen is a reason Tongue
And on nuclear matters, well, on Flamanville and La Hague, Hollande is almost on line with Sarkozy.
Maybe rural upset translating, here more than anywhere else, by a "revolutionary" vote against the right ?

I'd say it's because politics means less in the UK and our politicians are as much to blame for that as anyone.
