"The Morality Battle"
Sarkozy reportedly believes that because of the DSK affair, the PS has lost the "morality battle" and is therefore in a much weaker position going into the 2012 presidential elections. I think he may be right, although he's hardly standing on the high moral ground when he says this. Count on Marine Le Pen to remind voters of the Woerth Affair, the cigars and jets bought by ministers with the Republic's money, the payoff to Bernard Tapie, Bolloré's yacht, the post-election dinner at Fouquet's, the luxurious vacations, Alliot-Marie in Tunisia, Sarkozy's pretend marriage to Cécilia right up to the divorce, Casse-toi pauvr'con, etc.
