    No. 44 Has Spoken
    By Gerhard Spörl

    Anyone who saw Barack Obama at Berlin's Siegessäule on Thursday could recognize that this man will become the 44th president of the United States. He is more than ambitious -- he wants to lay claim to become the president of the world.

    It was a ton to absorb -- and what a stupendous ride through world history: the story of his own family, the Berlin Airlift, terrorists, poorly secured nuclear material, the polar caps, World War II, America's errors, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, freedom. It's amazing anyone could pack such a potpourri of issues into the space of a speech that lasted less than 30 minutes.

    One has to be an imbecile to castigate Obama based on a German magazine. Suppose some magazine from a foreign nation praised him, would that change your mind? Of course not, you puppets want the buffoons who brought us to the brink of another great depression back. Why, because you can't get past your narrow minded partisanship and your losing to democracy in 2008.

    The picture is kinda meaningless, but if Obama were to stop the drones you wackos would be crying like babies. You do now every chance you get. Europe is ahead of us and behind us in many ways, the nonsensical austerity over there has created more economic problems, and you fools will vote for a flip flopper who will bring back the same. Hopefully democracy will once again pick the right candidate: Obama / Biden 2012.

    "Conservatism is the theoretical voice of this animus against the agency of the subordinate classes. It provides the most consistent and profound argument as to why the lower orders should not be allowed to exercise their independent will, why they should not be allowed to govern themselves or the polity. Submission is their first duty, agency, the prerogative of the elite." Corey Robin

    Don't care what a German magazine, or any other foreign entity, thinks of my President.

    All that matters is what I think.

    I'm not impressed.

    With my President.
