And Koddos to @FoxNews for covering the story. You can read (Fox’s take on it click here):

Understanding the French Elections

UnknownThe French presidential elections to be held in two-rounds on April 23 and May 7 are unlike any France has seen since the Fifth Republic Constitution went into effect in 1959. And if polls are right, the winner of the second round will have a hostile majority in Parliament. France may well become ungovernable.  If France slips into anarchy, it could well take the European Union down with it. Continue reading →
