His poll numbers over here may be falling, but the New York Times found a place where Barack Obama is still very popular and bringing the hope: The slum-like banlieuesoutside Paris dominated by Muslim immigrants, in Thursdays Feeling Slighted by France, And Respected by the U.S. by France-based reporter Scott Sayare.
The residents of this poor, multiracial Paris suburb say they have been abandoned. For 30 years, they say, the French authorities have written off Bondy and neighborhoods like it, treating their inhabitants as terminal delinquents and ignoring their potential.
Obama evidently has the French slum vote locked up:
There’s nothing in those “slums” but mosselimbs.
Not wonder he’s popular.
Boy they are really reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaching aren’t they? The desperation to say anything positive about this idiot is palpable.
Look for increases in absentee ballots from france.
Perhaps they polled the folks out burning the cars?
Perhaps if they integrated and learned French and didn’t riot when they don’t get their way, they wouldn’t be in the slums.
Can’t pack them in here anymore
but he sure has the French slum vote locked up, now if he can only get them to vote in America.
Have they polled Kenyans yet?
Obama promises to make Americans just as miserable as they are.
