Editor’s note. From time to time, Simone sends us short commentary like the one below. We will publish the most interesting of these. These thoughts came in response to the Macron victory in the French election.
I am glad France has reversed course. I am glad Macron is pro-European. But why? oh why? couldn’t we do it here? Why do we have to put up with these Mafia criminals in the White House? And who will have the guts to sack them?
Our current resident makes Nixon look like a saint and George W like a genius. (and Marine Le Pen like a nuisance)
I guess we can thank our overly long campaign season and our electoral system for our woes.
Macron was a dark horse but perhaps will prove to be a good one.
