Zapatero Re-Elected

Posted by Mike on March 9, 2008

Spanish voters re-elected Jose Luis Zapatero’s Socialist government today by a narrow margin over the Party Popular. U.S. media is calling it an affirmation of the government’s gay marriage and divorce policies.

Normally I take U.S. media declarations regarding political mandates with a thousand grains of salt, but maybe they’re right this time. The Spanish economy is faltering and this year’s pre-election terrorist attack occurred on Zapatero’s watch. Perhaps the Spanish are still grateful for Zapatero’s retreat in the War on Terror’s Iraq front.
