Fox News has the full-monty on the electoral happenings.
Fox News-Conservatives raced toward victory in some of Europe's largest economies Sunday as initial results and exit polls showed voters punishing left-leaning parties in European parliament elections in France, Germany and elsewhere.
Some right-leaning parties said the results vindicated their reluctance to spend more on company bailouts and fiscal stimulus amid the global economic crisis.
First projections by the European Union showed center-right parties would have the most seats — between 263 and 273 — in the 736-member parliament. Center-left parties were expected to get between 155 to 165 seats.
Right-leaning governments were ahead of the opposition in Germany, France, Italy and Belgium, while conservative opposition parties were leading in Britain and Spain.
I don't know if this political shift is any sort of prognostication for things to come here in our country. But, it is somewhat striking to note the underpinnings of this election, they are indicative of why the Euro-Left stands to lose so many parliamentary seats. Their genetically wired lust to spend, spend, and spend some more, regardless of future consequences.
