Same as usual. Many French complaining and sinking into dejection, rather than being spurred to organize and push for constructive but realistic solutions (or political-battle plans) at the European level.

@ Anonymous,

The French had a very good plan for achieving those objectives. They voted to elect a president who said (well, implied) that he had exactly the sort of constructive but realistic solution and the political will to implement them. Unfortunately, Hollande has neither the plans nor the will to do what is necessary to save France from the looming political and economic disaster.

At the time, however, most people (myself included) thought that the French had made a wise choice; they are understandably dejected because their last, best hope turned out to be a presidency in custard.
