I only regret we won't elect a socialist leader.

The thing I want to know is how come French politicians get all the hot babes to be their "partner".

I mean how does a guy who's name sounds like a new sauce for breakfast sandwiches get to bed this every night:…

Yeah..Valerie Trierweiler.

You know what...we don't even have stuff that looks like her around here!!

Yeah, remember when the Socialists deregulated the banks, started all kinds of foreign wars based on lies, and then caused the economic collapse 2008? I can see why Wall Street is worried.

Well, I'm not too worried. The French have had a Socialist as President (Mitterand) before. Wall Street should know better. They will be fine.

Who cares what a bunch of welfare queens think? When those incompetent neurotics on Wall Street go out and get a real job, I'll pay attention to their hand-wringing.

Sadly I have not seen this "socialist election" lead to a spike in gold prices. Must be a slow news day or mistranslation.

@8: After Cleavon Little's character in "Blazing Saddles":
One more move and the banker gets it.

That article fills me with the glee of anti-banksta schadenfreude. Here's hoping Hollande implements every one of those policies that Wall Street fears! Especially the 75% top tax rate! (But not the lowering of the retirement age. You're a lovely country, dear France, but you really need to stop mismanaging your pension system.)
