Some French are a dreaming of getting Barack (----) Obama to run for French pres-even though being native born in France is a requirement.
Well looks like a group of French voters are urging former President Obama to Run on for the French president this spring.
A group of voters in France is urging former President Obama to run in the French presidential election this spring.
“At a time when France is about to vote massively for the extreme right, we can still give a lesson of democracy to the planet by electing a French President, a foreigner,” the French website for “OBAMA17” reads, ABC News first reported on Thursday.
OBAMA17 is that name of the group that needs to get 1 million signatures, but it seems to be a stupid waste of time as France requires presidential candidates to be native, just as the US did.
But the logic is not ruling the day, and there are posters all over France with Obama's beautiful mug prominently displayed.
The group is jockeying for 1 million signatures, even though Obama is not French and France requires its presidential candidates to be natives.
“We started dreaming about this idea two months before the end of Obama’s presidency,” an OBAMA17 spokesman told ABC. "We dreamed about this possibility to vote for someone we really admire, someone who could lead us to project ourselves in a bright future."
