The EU-SSR Constitution Goes Down in Flames

This is a good thing, despite how the MSM may spin it.

PARIS -- French voters rejected the European Union's first constitution Sunday, a stinging repudiation of President Jacques Chirac's leadership and the ambitious, decades-long effort to further unite the continent.

Now the question is, will Black Jacques Chirac, who seems to know best for everyone, listen to his own people?

Chirac, who urged voters to approve the charter, announced the result in a brief, televised address. He said the process of ratifying the treaty would continue in other EU countries.

"It is your sovereign decision, and I take note," Chirac said. "Make no mistake, France's decision inevitably creates a difficult context for the defense of our interests in Europe."

"...creates a difficult context for the defense of our interests in Europe.", I hate to remind you, but your IN Europe.

Anyhow, as any good communist, the powers behind the European Union of Soviet Socialist Republics will keep taking votes till they get what they want.

EU leaders in Brussels, Belgium, vowed to continue their effort to have the constitution approved.

Hey, they should talk to Christine Gregoire, she knows how to keep counting the votes till they come out the way you want.
