"Choosing Nicolas Sarkozy would be a dangerous choice," Royal told RTL radio.Yes, it is her "responsibility" to warn the French that there exists a veritable army of barbarian marauders poised to burn down the nation... a bleak fate only to be averted by pleasing the barbarians through the selection of a Socialiste to the presidency of France. Funny that no one asks her why such an appalling criminal element would seemingly welcome a Royal presidency... what is it about the socialist candidate that violent brutes would find so calming? If I knew that a thug preferred a particular candidate to win over another, I'd be more drawn towards the side that the bad guys are opposed to. But then, I'm not a socialist.

Pressed on whether there would be actual violence, Royal said: "I think so, I think so," referring specifically to France's volatile suburbs hit by widespread rioting in 2005.
A relaxed Sarkozy laughed off her comments.
"She's not in a good mood this morning. It must be the opinion polls," he told Europe 1 radio.
"She's finishing in violence, in a certain state of feverishness," he told reporters during a trip to the Alps. "When I hear her remarks, I wonder why a woman of her qualities carries such violent feelings. It adds nothing to the debate."

"There remains two days to stand up (...) to seize your ballot (...) Stand up for a strong France (...) Stand up for light!" she declared, exalting, during a public meeting at Lorient in mid-afternoon.
