Petition Calls for Obama to Run for French Presidency

Millions of Americans have been wondering and speculating what Barack Obama will do after leaving the White House.

We’ve seen speculations that range from playing golf and living off his pension and wealth to running for some other political office either at the national level or at some state level. One political pundit went to suggest that Obama run for governor of Illinois or mayor of Chicago. Another source before the election suggested that if Hillary Clinton won the election, she could name Obama to the Supreme Court. That was the most frightening prospect of all. Placing Obama on the Supreme Court is no different than putting a pedophile in charge of a daycare facility.

The idea of Obama following the example of Hillary Clinton when Bill left the White House and ran for the US Senate. That’s another frightening prospect to know that Obama would be working along other Senate ultra-liberals like Schumer, Franken and Sanders.

Just as America rescued France in World War I & II, it’s possible that France could be on the verge of recuing America.

Francois Hollande was sworn in as the President of France on May 15, 2012. He is up for re-election on April 13, 2017, and a growing faction believe they may have found a candidate to defeat Hollande.

With their election less than a month and half away, a petition has been circulating throughout France, trying to gather 1 million signatures to put Barack Obama on the ballot. The petition is called Obama17. Obama posters have been tacked up in Paris reading ‘Oui on peut’ – ‘Yes we can’, which is also the slogan of the campaign initiative.

The website set up for the Obama17 campaign states:

‘Barack Obama has completed his second term as president of the United States… why not hire him as president for France?’

According to The Daily Mail:

“It should be pointed out that Obama would have to learn French and become a citizen before he could even be in the running to be France’s president.”

“The creators of the petition, who wanted to remain anonymous, told NPR it was a joke but it was started out of frustration about politicians in France in general.”

“‘We were thinking about French politics and saying that we were fed up with the fact that we all the time had to vote against someone and how it would be cool to be able to vote for someone we admire. We came up with Obama,’ one creator said.”

“‘It’s definitely a joke. But it could make people think a little bit about what we could do differently in French politics… the idea was to make people wake up’.”

Joke or not, there are probably a few million Americans who would gladly chip in to give Obama French lessons and buy him a one-way ticket to Paris. France or any other nation is welcome to the most traitorous person America ever had in the White House. If only it weren’t a joke.

However, France already has a huge problem with Muslim refugees and terrorists, the last thing they need is to elect a leader like Obama who will only open their borders for more refugees and terrorists.

It’ll be interesting to see how many votes Obama gets in the French election.
