France Elects Macron, Status Quo Intact [VIDEO]

It wasn’t even close. Emmanuel Macron won in an absolute landslide over Marine Le Pen in today’s French presidential election.

So, what happens next for France? Nothing new, unfortunately. As I wrote earlier, Macron is a socialist dressed up in a fancy slogan and hands extended to right and left – which earned him the “centrist” label. Even Obama endorsed him. He must see some similarities there.

Macron has said a lot of nice things about reaching out to both right and left. It remains to be seen if he can actually pull a governing coalition together. Macron technically does not have a political party – En Marche is a movement without a political machine behind it. Will Macron need to return to his Socialist party roots in order to govern effectively? As the major left-wing parties have already endorsed him, does he actually need any right-wing support? Only time will tell – because the June parliamentary elections will determine whether he gets a governing majority.

But as it stands, France has voted to stay with the status quo. Read into that what you will.

    Sad, but not surprising. The last time they actually stood up to anyone was during the American Revolution. Since then, they can’t seem to surrender fast enough..

    So, did France just elect Obama-Lite?

  • Scott says:

    I see what you did there…. I just can’t help hearing the Scotsman from the Simpsons, calling them ” Cheese eating surrender monkeys” … seems more appropriate than ever…

  • J Walter says:

    Wasn’t it misogyny to not elect the female?

  • Scott says:

    nope, but only because she was conservative… at least compared to maroon… oops, Macron
