Yes, I agree entirely that the economic "program" he ran on was indeed "kind of stupid", and I'm sure he knows this. Thats precisely the point I tried to make above -- he's going to have to change that since his constituency will no longer be the vestigal Giscardiens but a new generation who have had enough of "kind of stupid" cliches and want to see someone who can assess issues lucidly and propose serious solutions.

Which is what I think JG was doing in his article. So my point was that Bayrou's party, since its new, may be the best opportunity to get past "kind of stupid" economics.

I'd be the first to applause if he changes his line, but he has been running on this "public debt is evil" for all his long political career so far, so I don't hold my breath here :).
