Obama invites Hollande to White House
AFP ^ | May 6, 2012

Posted on 05/06/2012 5:45:18 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

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.

Perhaps Hollande can share some of his election tips:

1. promise immigrants the right to vote
2. cure voters of their addiction to “foreign oil” and get them addicted to government handouts forever
3. promise a reduced retirement age

Forget Austerity, here’s to Dependency

First question Obama will ask Hollande...

How did you manage to sell them on a 75% tax rate?

Obama to Hollande: "Hope and Change."

Hollande to Obama: "Apres moi, le Deluge!"



Nos genuflectitur ad non princeps sed Princeps Pacem!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

When, if ever, will the people in the U.S. wake up to see what Obama plans for America? do they know or just not care that we are following Europe down the rabbithole?

Hollande has promised more government spending and higher taxes — including a 75-percent income tax on the rich...

Who gets tips from whom?

No problem, Sarkozy's fans here have told us it doesn't matter if the President of France is socialist by American standards. As long as he vacations in the United States and kisses our leaders butts, he's a "breathe of fresh air"

The first two phone calls he made after being crowned were to muzzies.

The Red Commie Bears Picnic

Picnic time for commie bears
The little red bears are having a lovely time today
Watch them, catch them unawares
And see them picnic on their holiday.

See them gaily gad about
They love to play and shout;
They never have any care;

At six o’clock their mummies and daddies,
Will take them home to bed,
Because they’re tired little socialist bears.

Thank AAC for the ping.
  
Will he and live in girlfriend, Valerie Rotweiller, um,  Trieweiller, be spending the night in separate bedrooms? 

 High fiving his fellow socialist and live-in girlfriend might be risky for Barry. Americans dont take kindly to such carryings on.

 BTW, Hollande will have huge problems with the Vatican, and traditional countries in Latin and  South America, as well as African nations. 

 Hollande’s son, Thomas, (by Segolène Royal, another live in girlfriend he never married) who has been a spokesman for his father, needs to clean up his act. Literally!

As a start, I would suggest Thomas get a haircut, clean clothes, and start learning to use a four-letter word: S-O-A-P. He might also work on his French, which is atrocious if he is going to speak in public as a spokesman for the French president.

” Hollande has promised more government spending and higher taxes — including a 75-percent income tax on the rich...”

If they are truly rich, they can live anywhere they want...
which means they won’t live in France....Isle of Man, maybe.
This socialist moron doesn’t care if revenues go down...we must be “fair”

Sooooooooooo.....If I make 4 dollars, the gooberment gets 3....I would rather DIE than take this in the rear. Everywhere in the world that they have tried to “soak the rich” the rich leave. Ask SOL how the surtax on the wealthy in Maryland caused them to move down south to Florida : )
