(Reuters) - French President Francois Hollande's approval ratings have tumbled to their lowest level since he first took office in May, a new poll showed on Sunday, as France's grinding economic stagnation and record unemployment show little sign of easing.

According to the Ifop poll for Sunday newspaper JDD, Hollande now has a 43 percent positive rating, down from 54 percent in August - one of the sharpest drops in over a decade.

Well, that was quick!

I’m reminded of the interview of Will Smith, who was saying how great France was, how well they’d received his movies, and how decent they were to black people. One of the interviewers asked him what he thought of the new 75% tax on the rich. He just gulped, and said something like, “75%? Really? That’s a lot.” End of conversation.

Look at what happens when you elect a “talker” instead of a “doer”. Anyone can talk a good fight. Look at our President. When the going got tough, he got going...to hide in Las Vegas.

How nice of nobama to take time out of his busy campaign, golf, vacation and “Dinners With Barack” schedule to school Hollande. What a guy!

I bet the next president will be a woman and her last name will be LePen. The French Nation must fall flat on her face before it can be restructured—and re-organized. It will come but not without protests and riots. Not a place to visit in 2013-14.

Sure recipe for catastrophe!

See FR thread
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2934539/posts

 ”French right-wing politician Marine Le Pen on Friday suggested Jews should be banned from wearing the kippa, or ritual head-covering for Jewish males, in public places.”

To all FReepers: I have been warning you about Marine Le Pen, the daughter of neo-fascist Jean -Marie Le Pen for years, since I first began this Ping list. She is her father in drag.
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. MLP is no kind of conservative; she is a totalitarian Statist anti-Semite and her party, the National Front, is nothing more than gussied up National Socialism.

H/T Sunken Civ for the heads up.

There are signs everywhere with Sarko and the slogan “Miss me yet?” Sarko’s popularity has rebounded greatly and people have buyer’s remorse.
Hollande is a colossal failure and many are betting he will never finish out his five year time. And his “companion”, Valerie Trierweiler aka “la favorite” and “ Le Rottweiler” is now the most hated woman in France!

It sure is a head-scratcher. What'd they expect?

Let's hope we're not in the same situation two months down the road.

He can easily raise his popularity again, by Blaming Bush for all of France’s problems.

Same thing is about to happen here in the U.S. in November.
