    Just one day after socialists in Germany suffered defeat, American democrats turned against democrats and killed the public option. European turn to the right gave signal to American left that, if they continue with their socialist agenda, they will share the same fate.

    Europe’s Socialists Suffering Even in Downturn

    Just six months ago, the same New York Times asked Obama if he was a socialist, and get reply from him: "The answer would be no". - March 7, 2009. Today, American Democrats finally stud up against liberal socialism and hopefully returned to their path.

    Actually, if one uses common sense (I know you may have a tough time of it) the reason that the specific people in Europe lost is because they were the ones in office during the economic collapses in the respective countries. It has little to do with beliefs, rather to vote out the ones in charge during the crisis.

    Socialists in France lost elections before the economic collapse, Sarcozy won in 2007.

    Keep telling yourself that Rob.

    Then explain how the Prime Ministers Party came out relitively unscathed.

    He did not win in a landslide either. He won with 53% in the end.

    Besides, Sarkozy is a hypocrite.

    He probably is a hypocrite. What that makes Obama?

    But this is not thread about Sarcozy, but about socialism in retreat. Please stay on the topic.

    The world had seen one of the worst economic crisis since WWII, so therefore the party in charge is going to get results such as that time.

    Some of the leaders were able to stay in office due to the fact that the people saw their opponents as obstacles to them getting stuff done.

    You're the one who brought up Sarkozy. (Spell his name right please)

    I have made my point.

    They have finally woke up to the fact that socialism is a FAILED agenda and CAPITALISM is the way to grow their economies. They have had years of practice at socialism, you would think that our leaders in the congress would learn from someone else's experience, but don't count on it. They will press on with their omnipotent, egotistical leader Obama.

    @ Dogbert

    True, but I mentioned him as an argument to your statement:
    Instead of France, I could mention Belgium or Netherlands, my argument would still be correct.
