Economist supports Sarkozy

No surprise there, then. The magazine has been of the opinion for as long as I can remember that France is a basket case, economically speaking. What the French need — according to the Economist — is a short sharp shock to jolt them out of their state-subsidised complacency. The editors clearly think Sarkozy is the man for the job.

Hmmm… This is the magazine that also supported George W. Bush for the presidency.
