FIGAROVOX / TRIBUNE – The career of Emmanuel Macron, ENA at Bercy through Rothschild, has been meteoric. Frédéric Saint Clair, the darling of all Paris should be wary because it now will face the country.
Frédéric Saint Clair is an analyst in strategy and policy communication. He was special advisor to Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin. His book, The recasting of the right is to be published in September in the Salvator Editions
“The Macron phenomenon”. “The Macron UFO”; “The darling of all Paris”; the flattering adjectives have stopped raining on this young technocrat, became an investment banker at Rothschild and member of the firm Francois Hollande at the Elysee Palace, and finally Minister of Economy. An undeniable talent for business. The controversial standpoints in government. A minister from among the most prominent. And then, of course, a resignation, which, it is believed, should be able to put this free electron in the race for the Elysee in 2017, at the head of his movement “RUN!”. Everything goes very fast. It would therefore be useful to dwell on it not Emmanuel Macron has just passed and that will probably prove more difficult than it seems. What does this resignation?

first of all, obviously, an ambition. Ambition is a quality good enough for the voters, except when it is disproportionate. Except when it shows a personal interest that goes beyond the general interest. And it could be that the French see this side step a form of ingratitude for Francois Hollande, who has made this unknown young banker of the public minister of the Republic, who gave him a status, and even more, which gave him the necessary recognition without which its start in politics would have been a chimera. It should be noted, incidentally, that any speech to mark a form of recognition a posteriori are do nothing, actions speak for themselves. They might as French also see it as a mark of confidence that neither the balance sheet nor the content of the program justifies Emmanuel Macron. Politicians often forget that the ideas they carry and they consider most relevant and useful than those of their competitors appear mostly extremely mundane time to the people. And lean balance sheets that are linked for decades only confirm that judgment. There is therefore, in the momentum of Emmanuel Macron, the obvious sign of a lack of knowledge of popular political psychology.
How did he become the darling of all Paris? In three stages: 1. The power. 2. Contrast. 3. dream.
It also collects, in his decision to resign, a lack of knowledge of clean power strategies in political and media elite. Let us ask ourselves this question: How did he become the darling of all Paris? In three stages: 1. The power. 2. Contrast. 3. dream. Power is one born of a dominant political position, and that always fascinates; especially the media who like to put the power stage, to the starifier. The contrast is marked by constantly shift between reaffirmed his membership in a socialist government trying, somehow, to resist the liberal siren for social work and social liberal position. Macron in such a government, is constantly on the side of the forbidden, the taboo side. He regularly crosses the red line. He transgresses and it creates an emulation; it fosters all expectations. We thus come to the third element, the dream, born of the singular position of a talented young aristocrat in which anything goes because everything seems to succeed him. France needs to dream. She loves fictional characters which it can identify. The media are quick then create statues that they know will last a long, because once the soaring passion, the idol will be sacrificed. Often at the slightest mistake. Often so blind as unilateral and she was praised some time ago.
Emmanuel Macron should be wary, and do not forget that all Paris will represent France on glossy paper.
Emmanuel Macron should be wary, and do not forget that all Paris will represent France on glossy paper. Once it is no longer Minister of Economy, once it is off the pedestal where François Hollande invited to climb once he has both distanced the left of the PS, but also with its social democratic component, once it enters into competition with the multiplicity of candidates, ie the multitude of individuals engaged in politics, and who feel that their ideas are better than others, when position can not encourage the media to constantly turn to him once he has lost that aura conferred on him being minister of economy in 38 years, for no more than a politician like so many others, when he will have his ideas appealing, not just the image that gives it a privileged status, as soon as he will have his spokesman earlier than that, both of the class policy, but also intellectuals and especially above the bistro conversations will quickly denigrate the proposals he has put so much time working, once the statue has been reversed, leaving almost the only man in the middle a huge crowd of people only concerned about their little petty interests that will convince yet to be elected at that time Emmanuel Macron measure that this step aside, which seemed awfully bold and necessary, had actually clumsy and early.
