The French want Obama to lead them. Seriously, who can blame them?

Courtesy of CNN: 

Could France elect Barack Obama president? Not really -- but that's not stopping the organizers of Obama17, a guerrilla campaign trying to entice the former U.S. president to head to Paris. 

"It's totally crazy, but the cool thing is that once you get past that, you start thinking that maybe it's possible. Who cares that he's not French? He's Barack Obama," one of the campaign organizers told CNN. 

They've launched a website and they put up 500 posters of Obama around Paris last weekend, said the organizer. He asked to be identified only as Antoine. 

They're hoping to get 1 million people to sign a petition urging Obama to run.

This can't happen of course, but some citizens in France are panicking because they are on the verge of electing their own version of Donald Trump, Marine Le Pen.

Hopefully they will be luckier than we were, and THEIR voters will be a little smarter.

    Obama needs to come to Australia and be our new PM. Australia has about 8 US military bases, every president including Obama has added another one (for the wingnuts, no, they're not to protect us but so that Americans can invade other countries and kill their citizens without having to travel too far and also because America's big satellite spying operation is headquartered in Australia- bet you didn't know that) so Obama may as well be President of the constituency of thousands of Americans secreted behind barbed wire performing their evil deeds making Australia a prime target with the blessing of our pointless wingnut government.

      WHOA, no I didn't know about the satellite HQ.
      Thanks for telling me. This sucks!

    After what took place in the USA last Nov 9th, the only thing Americans can claim is exceptional about the people is their profound stupidity (by electing Trump, nay, even allowing him to be a viable candidate). I just hope the rest of the free world can say this planet from that level of foolishness. It's very sad that a once great country has fallen so far and so fast.

      There are only a few qualifications one need have to run for Prez, according to our Constitution.
      However, in cold, hard reality, you must have billionaire corporate donors BUY the office for ya.

      I'm surprised I must explain this to you.
      Have you any idea of the degree this last election was compromised? Is this an example of your exceptional stupidity?

      WTF are you talking about 5:00am? The GOP should've taken Trump out before he even won one primary. Since the party machine neglected to do that, the 62 million people who voted for Trump proved that America is exceptionally stupid, among other things.

      I'm surprised I must explain this to you. Is this an example of your exceptional stupidity?

      5:21 thinks the GOP is a philanthropist organization, bound and determined to work for the good of the nation as a whole.
      Aaaaand the rest of the 17 or so who coveted the GOP nomination were somehow better people/candidates? They had NOTHING to offer, either.

      Try harder to cool your burn.

      It was the electoral college that actually elected drumpf.

      Mrs. Clinton garnered WAAAY more votes than drumpf.

      I must agree that anyone who actually voted for drumpf is exceptionally stupid.
      To paint ALL Americans as such is stereotyping(a refuge for ignorance), and untrue since drumpf didn't get 100% of the popular vote.

    "THEIR voters," Jesse. They're is the contraction for they are.

    Correction made, I think this is a slap in Trump's enraged face. He keeps saying how hated Obama is (I read that from the Trumpeters, too, that no one in the world respected us due to Obama.) More lies. More hate. And they pretend that Trump is 'doing what he said, has already accomplished half his promises!' What? he's done nothing but create hatred, chaos, and fear. He DID intend that. And Bannon moreso. They are evil. And everything they accused Hillary of doing, they have done tenfold, including getting a serviceman killed needlessly. Nice work, GOP. You own this mess-please clean it up pronto.

      Still not corrected. He shouldn't criticize Palin ir Trump with a stupid mistake like that.

      Were you just being ironic with your typo, 4:49?

      @4:59 AM WTF is ' ir '? Stupid mistakes? Pot meet kettle. Try proofreading your own mistakes.

      ir ??? just sayin' -- we all make mistakes like this.

    Hey kids President Obama can lawfully run again in the USA. There are no rules, laws or reason he cannot. President Roosevelt was elected for 4 terms. He died in his 4th. So impeach the rump now and elect Obama 2020

      Evidently your double wide doesn't have a copy of the US Constitution. May I suggest the 22nd Amendment to read.

    2. Anonymous6:08 AM

      I'll bet you have a lot of warm caring friends & family who love you, 5:36.

    3. Anonymous7:05 AM

      I like 5:36 because 5:36 obviously has a brain and is willing to correct totally erroneous and incorrect information, like the poster at 3:40 is spewing.

      I think I read the same post the other night from the same person and shook my head.... The lack of curiosity is strong with 3:40. Probably gets their information from The Young Turks or Politicususa or Palmerreport lol.

      With the geniuses like 3:40 on the left, Trump should have a cakewalk to the 2nd term.

    4. Anonymous7:47 AM

      Oh Thank you Bozo, did I say Vice President or President? (: fake news gets attention :) Maybe read the 12th amendment along with the 22nd. Debate class can start after that.

    5. Anonymous7:53 AM

      Yes I cannot wait to see the genius in the white house attempt to lie under oath. And tomorrow? oh tomorrow the so called president is in HUGE BIGLY trouble with that constitution sitting in yer double wide down yonder.

    6. Anonymous7:55 AM

      30 day fakewalk. and cant make 60 days.

    7. Anonymous8:36 AM

      Evidently ms Conway and bubba bannon correct the fake news too.

    8. Anonymous8:49 AM

      What part of the 12th Amendment 7:47? You mean this part: "no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States."?

    9. Anonymous9:27 AM

      Maybe they mean the part that says a past 2 term president can actually be a VP. That has never been tested. I thought trump was going to repeal the 22 so he could be king rump rigger?

      The heritage constitution is not the same as the USA constitution. Don't forget to read the whole enchilada, amendments, repeals, arguments, and outcomes.

    11. Anonymous10:26 AM

      Heritage Constitution? What?

      Obama cannot serve as President or VP. Simple enough. Cannot happen. Will not happen.

      Dumb argument anyways, as he is well on his way to make hundreds of millions of dollars in speeches and books and foundations.

  5. Anonymous6:08 AM

    THEIR voters (not THEY'RE)... sorry, had to edit...

  6. Hopefully they are keeping a close eye on Russian interference and have protections in place.
