Socialist President Of France François Hollande Cleverly Endorses Mitt Romney

François Hollande, the Socialist President of France, is apparently quite aware that Americans hate only one thing more than the snooty French. And that is: snooty French socialists.

Hollande, who recently unveiled his controversial plan for a 75% income tax rate on people making more the equivalent of $1.3 million per year, was asked by reporters at the UN General Assembly this week whether he was backing either candidate in the U.S. presidential election. The self-aware Hollande pointed out that, in America, “as you’d imagine, if a socialist supported one of these candidates, it would cost him dear,” adding “I suppose I should endorse Mitt Romney.”

Jokes aside, Hollande said he was not officially endorsing either candidate. “I’m not saying that to get embroiled in the American electoral debate,” he said. “But it’s true that between President Obama and what I’m representing here today, France, there are common goals.” (François, stop helping!! Stick with the Romney endorsement!!)
