Suddenly, Fox Wants The U.S. To Be More Like The French


Remember the days when Fox News mocked John Kerry for being too French? When we were supposed to boycott France? That was so last decade! Now that France's high court has overturned a measure raising taxes on the wealthiest, Fox News wants us to take a lesson from them. Just pay no attention to the fact that France was proposing a tax rate of 75% on its highest earners, much higher than anything being proposed here.

Guest host Juliet Huddy announced on Fox & Friends this morning that President Obama "may want to look across the pond for some guidance." Never mind that France's measure was overturned on a technicality. Fox News producers called this a "defeat for socialism" in its banner on the lower third.

As the three cheered the results for those French "job creators," host Dave Briggs offered a suggestion for Americans: "Perhaps there's a lesson learned here."

Who knows, maybe Fox will be raving about Marco Rubio's or Jeb Bush's "Je ne sais pas quoi" in a few years!
