French Voters Call On Obama To Run For President To "Give French People Hope"

Tyler Durden's picture

As French voters look set to make a massive swing to the right in their upcoming presidential election (see our notes on the topic here and here), a group of frightened liberal protesters have decided to back a relatively surprising, if impossible, presidential candidate in 2017, Barack Obama. 

And, lest you think this is a joke, a quick walk around Paris even reveals campaign posters for "Obama17" plastered all around the city.



The group of protesters who launched the effort to bring "hope and change" to France are urging French citizens to visit their website to sign a petition to convince Obama to enter the race.  They figure that 1 million signatures should do the trick.

Meanwhile, asked why they support Obama, protesters told ABC News they're looking for a candidate they "really admire" and "someone who could lead us to project ourselves in a bright future to give French people hope."

Why Obama? "Because he has the best resume in the world for the job," reads the website, which is in no way connected to Obama.


"At a time when France is about to vote massively for the extreme right, we can still give a lesson of democracy to the planet by electing a French President, a foreigner," reads the website in French.


A spokesperson for the group told ABC News Thursday morning, "We started dreaming about this idea two months before the end of Obama's presidency. We dreamed about this possibility to vote for someone we really admire, someone who could lead us to project ourselves in a bright future. Then, we thought, whether it's possible or not, whether or not he is French, we have to do this for real, to give French people hope ... Vive la République, Vive Obama, Vive la France and the U.S.A."

And while we have our doubts about the likelihood of this plan working out, might we suggest that Hillary Clinton would make a great candidate for a senior cabinet position in Obama's new administration.



Of course, while it's a genius plan, if we understand it correctly, there is just one minor problem...the French president needs to be, well, French.

40% popularity for FN is not massive.

That means 60% are voting against Le Pen!

chiswickcat's picture

40% is huge in any 'democratic' election. What was Trumps? 30%?

This would be a blessing for the Conservative French. A few years of him and "Les Républicains" party will be stronger than they have ever been.

It took Obama less than 8 years to destroy the Democratic Party and Liberal media here, how long would it take to bring the French leftist poof's to their knees?

Best idea ever, I endorse it fully in fact I think we should do whatever we can here at fight club to make this happen.

Can foreigners sign that petition? Better yet can we vote in the election, I don't see why not...after all they can vote in ours, hell even dead people can so it's only fair right?

Obama as french President, that is just years of comedy gold gift wrapped enough to make a career out of. God I really want this to happen.

Obama 2017 France!

Yes I will have that please.

Sounds like their media and our media are on the same propaganda channel.

This is delusional.

Imagine a guy who has led two countries, neither of which he was born in.

Socialism doesn't work. Corruption doesn't work.

Obama only fed a delusion of "hope".  Most of the things he touched deteriorated.  He doesn't have the Midas touch.  He's got the Medussa touch.

How can a British subject be elected as President of France?

Dodgy Geezer's picture

They can have him.   Though maybe Blair or Hillary Clinton would like to have a go as well?

What a useful thing to do with old failed politicians!  Make them President of France. Or Greece. Or somewhere...

MORONS!    Of course, the frenchies LOVE to bomb brown people.   Look at Libya -- O'Bomber is just what they need to carry on the tradition.. Maybe they can get McLame as a bonus bomber.   IDIOTS

If French voters want Obama for their President, France is beyond hope.

Want to bet we  can supply 20-30 million signatures in support of him being President of France just to get him out of the US?  I am not so wild about the French anyway - I think Obama and the French deserve each other.

The french people that want obongo for their leader are a perfect example of:

"These people are so ignorant, they don't even know they are ignorant."

Oboinko will just do more of the things that are creating problems in France.
So, the problems will become worse until finally the country will be in a shambles.
Then the people that are there for the freebies will leave, and the people that actually do stuff can put the country back together again.

Who knows how much money will be wasted and how many lives will be lost because of this.

Oh well, the world needs a good purge. Maybe obama is the enema the world needs.

This is what the loony French can expect from Barack Obama: 1) disinformation, 2) distraction, 3) demoralization, 4) destabilization, 5) created/exploited crisis, 6) government" solution" to the crisis, 7) normalization to the new tyranny, 8) trash the French system of government, 9) repeat.

That's how it worked in the good old USA.

There are non left. They used them all for sandniggers.

Sorry, my bad ... make that a certified copy of a 'Certificate of Live Birth'. They have lots of them in Hawaii, easily alterable.

Now this is something I would support!!!

Then Obama can REALLY get bitched slapped in foreign policy.

If he won France could finally solve some of their big pressing issues of the day, like which bathroom to use.

I don't think the world can get any stupider but I know it will. God save us please.
