Did Obama Do Le Pen a Favor by Endorsing Macron in French Election?

Did Obama Do Le Pen a Favor by Endorsing Macron in French Election?

“appeals to people’s hopes and not their fears.”

Obama endorsed Emmanuel Macron for President of France yesterday in the tightly contested election which will take place this weekend. Obama’s record on involving himself in the affairs of other countries might have Marine Le Pen’s team smiling.

USA Today reported:

French candidate Emmanuel Macron endorsed by Barack Obama

Former president Barack Obama, who is wildly popular in France, has formally endorsed French presidential hopeful Emmanuel Macron, an independent centrist he calls the candidate of “hope.”

The unusual high-profile endorsement by a former U.S. president in a foreign election amounts to something of a proxy fight with President Trump, who has spoken positively of right-wing candidate Marine Le Pen of the National Front party.

Obama’s remarks appear in a taped message, with French subtitles, posted on Macron’s campaign En Marche!website.

“I have admired the campaign that Emmanuel Macron has run,” Obama said. “He has stood up for liberal values. He put forward a vision for the important role that France plays in Europe and around the world, and he is committed to a better future for the French people.”

In a none-too-subtle reference to his own campaign, Obama said Macron “appeals to people’s hopes and not their fears.”

Here’s the video:

Macron accepted the endorsement but Obama’s record on these matters isn’t great.

Some people saw another side to this situation:

Outside interference does seem to be a Le Pen theme.

This guy has absolutely no concept of right and wrong. It’s no wonder his legacy lasted as long as a Saturday night blowie. He just can’t help himself to look stupid.

Of course this guy would do anything that will continue the Muslim invasion of Europe.

    In agreement with PFG: Macron would give the Kenyan hope that the muslim invasion would continue.

    He’s despicable.

As the old saying goes, hope in one hand and $hit in the other, and see which one fills up first.

“Hope” is not going to stop the Muslim invasion. That is going to require deliberate action from the French people, starting with voting against idiot establishment politicians like Macron who want to keep implementing the same stupid policies that got France into the mess it’s in now.

Obama does have the Anti-Midas Touch: Everything he touches turns to sh*t.

I wonder if the Dems/media are going to lose their mind over “America meddling in French elections”?

“Thank you for the endorsement, Mr. Obama. Who do we make the check out to?”

Well, that is encouraging, for Marine Le Pen.

Obama is concerned that France will withdraw from the cover-up of CAIR (Catastrophic Anthropogenic Immigration Reform), which was forced by social justice adventurism in elective regime changes from Libya to Syria to Ukraine. Well, perhaps not Ukraine, where the refugees were able to stand their ground with aid from their Russian neighbors.

“appeals to people’s hopes and not their fears.”

If he’s going to continue his career of pretending to “lead from behind,” he’s going to need a new jingle. That one’s long past the point where it’s started to stink up the place.
