Barack Obama invited the new socialist President-elect Francois Hollande to the White House later this month.
The AFP reported:

President Barack Obama invited French president-elect Francois Hollande to the White House later this month, expressing hope the pair would work “closely,” a spokesman said Sunday.

In a telephone call to congratulate Hollande on his election victory, Obama “indicated that he looks forward to working closely with Mr Hollande and his government on a range of shared economic and security challenges,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said in a statement.

Obama and Hollande “each reaffirmed the important and enduring alliance between the people of the United States and France,” the statement read.

The US president is due to host the leaders of the Group of Eight rich nation’s club at his Camp David retreat in Maryland between May 18-19, followed by the NATO transatlantic alliance summit in Chicago on May 20-21.

In his call to Hollande, Obama “proposed that they meet beforehand at the White House” for a bilateral meeting, Carney said.

Stocks plummeted tonight after the socialist party won in France.

    Truly amazing. The French have lost their minds. This is their thinking:

    “Let’s tax the hell out of the rich and hard-working so the young and lazy can have lots of free stuff!”

    Seriously? And what is the motivation of the rich and hard working to keep working hard if they have to give 75% of what they make to your lazy asses? Don’t they see this? Can they possibly be THIS stupid.

    The most amazing part is that Liberals actually really believe that THEY are smart and Conservatives are dumb. If it weren’t so scary it would be hilarious.

    “His” Camp David Retreat? Wow…

  • Bill Mitchell

    This is actually great for Romney. He can point to France and say, “See America? Is THIS what you want? Do you want to BE France?” Elect Barack Obama to a second term and you will BE France.

  • Justice Beaver

    Turds of a feather…

    Stupid France. The Red-Green alliance will destroy what little is left of the republic.

    We have to become more visible in making the case for conservative issues and our support for Romney. He’s been saying and doing all the right things lately. We need to back him up – and watch his back.

  • TrickyDick

    I would actually enjoy watching the inevitable fall of Frances economy into a depression if I didn’t know it will adversely afect our own.

    If we don’t get Zero out in Nov, we can follow France, and the rest of the EU, off the cliff.

    I wonder if after at least two years the French will start to have buyers remorse.
    If the wealthy are smart, they will leave post haste. Bit of news re Hollande and the Rottweiler, as she is called.

    I had to be dragged kicking and screaming to Romney’s camp, and am still not comfortable with him yet. To start, I have stopped referring to him as Mittens and am prepared to work tirelessly to get him elected in Nov. Redwine is right. We do need to back him up, and have his back. Not feeling anxious most times worrying about the future of our great Republic would be a great relief.

  • Economan

    The French and the idiots who voted for Obama have something in common, a bad case of stupidity. Can’t those French just look at what Obama has done to our economy?

    Good luck dumb-asses!

  • Maxwell Jump

    Hollande got the kids vote. Yay. A couple of years from now, after they get handed the bill for what their votes have wrought, I wonder if they’ll still be cheering? Tho I imagine it’s kinda hard to cheer while wearing a burka.

  • lizzy84

    Note the Algerian, Moroccan, Tunisian and Palestinian flags on display in the Place de la Bastille to celebrate the Socialist victory in France:

    France is circling down the drain.

    I need to warn my fellow GWP’ers that they’re quite possibly misreading both the Sarkozy loss, as well as the coming Romney-Repeat.

    Bill Mitchell writes above:

    “Let’s tax the hell out of the rich and hard-working so the young and lazy can have lots of free stuff!”

    There are a few who feel this way, but very few and insignificant. We groan when Obama utters the latest strawman by saying “There are some who say that… ” and inserts an insanely outlandish claim, to which he is the moderating position. Let’s not do that ourselves either. Most Occupiers I know personally do not embrace this position. Most Tea Partiers do not embrace the Klan (as DHS, Napolitano, Holder, the New York Times, the Democratic Party, and others in the manufactured media insist).

    Sarkozy lost France because he proved that he too is just another paid-off political whore who has continued the looting of France for the purpose of empowering global elites. Consider this thought: the only difference between American Republicans and Democrats is who each bribes and pays off to continue power while they strip the place bare. Bush and Obama are no different in that both took on insane amounts of debt so that the assets accumulated could be transferred to those who backed them. Both signed IOUs that pledged the American people to pay back to China and elsewhere that they borrowed and gave to their fat-cat friends.

    France is no different. Sarkozy came in promising reform, but did the same thing Bush II did (and McCain certainly would have done). The American people threw out Bush. The French threw out Sarkozy. Obama is probably next, but electing Romney will probably be the death of the Republican party. Hey… I know, we’re all screwed now. You Romney folks voted for him, and the Tea Party spread its votes across too many candidates. Our failure is a consequence of our stupidity as a people.

    The French people see their country being given over to Islamists, to global elites, and they rejected the latest set. They’ll certainly fail once again, embracing hard-left Socialists. But what else can they do?

    Nobody speaks for us anymore. We’re the sheep in the slaughterhouse.
