French Bashing Could Be Ending

Funny how those things work. The French, who Ol' BC really had the ass for not too long ago, recently elected Nicolas Sarkozy. How would that change one's perspective? Logical question. Sarkozy is the son of a man who fled Hungary when they were invaded by the Soviet Union and settled in France. He campaigned on a platform of repairing relations with the United States as well as cutting back on the nanny state socialism of France. Amazingly, he was elected by a comfortable margin. Why? French socialism was failing miserably as is the case in most countries who've embraced it for some time. He preached more work, less taxes and controlled immigration to stimulate an economy which had been stagnant or shrinking for a good while.

This reminds Ol' BC of another such story - Angela Merkel in Germany. First female Chancellor. Here's a lady who grew up in communist East Germany. She ran on a platform of repairing relations with the United States as well as cutting taxes and growing the horrid German economy whose unemployment had reached well into double digits. Germany was failing and Merkel knew why. Socialism.

Here's the question of the day. Why don't we hear more about these European leaders who are saying kind things about the U.S.? The media in the U.S. is focused on reporting anything negative about our country.

And get this, folks. The United States seems ready to elect Hitlery Clinton, who happens to be running on a platform that nearly doomed France and Germany, as our next president and the media in this country is doing everything possible to make it happen.

Just an observation.

I think it is hilarious that after all Bush has "accomplished" that Clinton is perceived by you as the "Doombringer"! Chicken Little, party of one?

Ah, but there hasn't been much Bush praising around here. His tax cuts were too small, although effective, and he allowed and prompted too much spending. One thing to keep in mind though is he told us when he ran both times that that was what he was going to do. When you look at the alternative in each election the choice between poor and awful was obvious.

Well, of course it is academic to say it, but something tells me that the candidates who ran against Bush would very likely not have dragged us into such a place as we are right now.

It is interesting to note that WWII was fought with U.S. money and sacrifice. I wonder how long ago the present war would have ended had the American people had to pay for it with their own money and sacrifice as opposed to the billions we are borrowing from China to pay for it.

The American public is asleep. It explains both Bush's election and the fact that the public has not mobbed the white house en masse and lynched him. Adding up his alienation of foreign powers, his constant war rhetoric, his illegal invasion of a country based upon lies, his administration's condoning of torture and invasion of privacy, and his disagreeable record on the environment and health care seems to me like reason enough to have booted him long ago.

This is slightly off the track, yet when I think of the alternatives to who we have, something tells me that a boiled potato would have made a better president. Hell, a raw cabbage might better have pulled it off.

Slightly off track.

It's always great to see such insightful rebuttals, though! Well said, gentlemen!

I'll say.

The fact that Hitlery Clinton even has a chance at a nomination for ANY party, let alone one of the big ones, is evidence of this.

You'd think after Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, FDR, LBJ, Castro, and the rest of the socialist/communist crowd, they'd get the message.
