    "Obama invites Hollande to White House"

    "President Barack Obama congratulated French president-elect Francois Hollande for his victory Sunday, but warned of "challenges" ahead, a clear reference to Afghanistan and eurozone debt crisis.

    The US president was among the first world leaders to welcome Hollande's election as France's first Socialist president in nearly two decades, a result sure to have major implications for Europe as it struggles to emerge from a financial crisis..."

    Nothing exciting about that Mrs Keet, we have had one for 31/2 years and a Muslim too.

    Keety, have you ever posted anything even remotely related to shooting of any kind, never mind trap shooting, on this forum? Just curious. Inquiring minds want to know.

    "François Hollande will strike fear into the hearts of the rich

    He has admitted that he 'does not like the rich' and declared: 'my real enemy is the world of finance'

    France will be waking up today to its first Socialist President for 17 years – and bracing for radical change. There are all kinds of reasons why one might fear a François Hollande presidency, especially if you are a prosperous French person.

    The 57-year-old Socialist has openly admitted that he "does not like the rich" and declared that "my real enemy is the world of finance". This means taxing the wealthy by up to 75 per cent, curtailing the activities of Paris as a centre for financial dealing, and ploughing millions into creating more civil service jobs.

    Add an explicit threat to renegotiate the euro pact to replace austerity with "growth-creating" spending, and you have one of the most vehemently left-wing programmes in recent history..."

    Hussein's new best friend and to think he is a devout socialist. Spots on a leopard never change.

    skeet-between you and me, a couple of bucks, the bet, how long this french looser stays in office before France slides down the financial tube in bankruptcy.
    What say you? Lee

    slic lee--I would like to take that bet. $50 says he stays in office at least 1 year and France does not declare bankruptcy within that same year. We should define bankruptcy as defaulting on its government bonds.

    Are you in?

    Did you guys hear that Jeep is considering production on a new truck? They said liberal pukes won't be allowed to buy one. Only gun owners because they will have a gun rack in the back window.
