TV: Sarkozy Elected French President

Sarcozy%20wins.jpgAccording to television projections (via Reuters), conservative Nicolas Sarkozy won France's presidential election, beating his Socialist rival, Segolene Royal, by a comfortable margin. Royal, had borrowed from the playbook of her Islamofascist supporters and warned that if she didn't win there would be violence and brutality unleashed in the country; apparently it didn't work:

Forecasts by four pollsters showed Sarkozy, 52, a hardline former interior minister, won around 53 percent of the vote in the second-round ballot and will succeed fellow conservative Jacques Chirac, who was president for 12 years.

Turnout was predicted at about 85 percent.

Royal has already conceded defeat.

The WaPo describes Sarkozy as an avowed fan of the United States who campaigned as a champion of law and order who would toughen immigration laws and boost economic growth and employment with free market reforms. He was a stark contrast with Royal, 53, who portrayed herself as a mother protector in favor of softer reforms that would strengthen and expand France's vast social welfare state.
