After Hollande's victory, the 1% is already warring on the rest of us.
Sarkozy, the first Socialist candidate to win in France since 1988, was the 11th European leader ousted in the wake of global economic collapse brought to us by the banksters and their government accomplices-enablers. ((Una Merkel next?)

Reagan, the Democratic Leadership Council and many others worked hard to spread to Europe what Sarkozy called the "American Model." Europe has seen the results of Rightist economic policy and is rejecting it. The 1% is already going crazy in its latest battle on its war against the 99%.

Already, the Guardian is saying Sarkozy's loss was "personal," to Sarkozy; the Daily Mail is bemoaning the French vote for a "return to ruinous spending;" and the investor class is either panicking and/or manipulating markets.

BTW, President Obama as already invited Hollande to the White House. No offense to anyone, but I hope Hollande politely declines on the ground that he has a rapid transition that requires all his time and attention right now.
