French pessimism

In France, any charm Francois Hollande might've had is already wearing off:
Francois Hollande's honeymoon on the French and the international stage has been brief. His approval rating has come sharply down to earth and if his predecessor Nicolas Sarkozy was viewed as hyperactive, he has been faulted as too passive.

Less than 3 months after the dancing at the Bastille in celebration of Hollande's electoral victory, France is highly pessimistic about the future and this pessimism cuts across all parties. [...]

While the new president and the new Socialist government can hardly be blamed for the recent gang violence in Marseille that prompted the city's mayor to request the government to call in the army to subdue the gangs, it hardly contributes to a feel-good factor.
What I'm wondering is why not many people went out to vote in the parliamentary elections this year, which might've at least helped on that end. Those jihad riots in cities like Marseille are just what I thought they'd want to try and prevent, yet they didn't even go out to vote properly for any of the politicians who might've had the courage it took to deal with them.

And who knows what the future holds now?

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
