Sarkozy Is Back And Wants To Give You ‘Everything’

Sarkozy lost to Francois Hollande of the Socialist Party who has presided over affairs with his lover on a scooter, anemic economic growth, multiple terrorist attacks despite a dramatic expansion of the surveillance state and a State of Emergency, the rise of the Far Right and a general sense of “je ne sais quoi” in the country. Sarkozy is not without his own interesting track record. The Napoleon-sized leader (in height and ego) is famous for his controversial response to riots against police brutality in French ghettos, throwing a fancy dinner party on the night of his election victory, frequent yacht trips and “surprising” his allies by telling them he started bombing Libya in 2011.
