According to  The Local - France's news in English patrons at Harry's Bar in Paris commented, 
"If Romney wins, it's gonna be a disaster!" said retired neurosurgeon Jean-Marie Dessama.

Romney was widely derided by patrons, with some bashing him for "religious extremism" while others called his policies "inhumane" or "reactionary".

Obama may have won 50% of the electorate Tuesday night, but he won an overwhelming 78% across the Atlantic. President Barack Obama, reelected on November 6, has many friends in France – even on the far right! (Although it’s a running joke among Americans that a far right French politician falls dead center on an American spectrum.)
