As the Transcendent One makes his way across Europe, and as the Germans pick themselves up from their collective case of the vapours, my natural curiosity was peaked relative to a point or two, involving and/or collateral to, “the Speech”..
Correct me if I am wrong but the election in November is going to be held in the United States and the last time I checked, we weren’t going to be electing a King of the Universe. So what does the gathering of 200,000 Germans have to do with the issues that a United States presidential aspirant should be addressing and shouldn’t he be addressing them within the United States? I also understand that the left couldn’t assemble that many head of liberal back home because they are spread out in order to protest the war, protest W, burn flags and other liberal convulsions of subversive expression or they are sleeping off yet another “bad trip”… My anonymous sources have told me that the reason for the size of the assemblage in Berlin was due to a flyer handed out by the Democrats the day before that asked for volunteers to amass at that time for another invasion of Poland..
This transparent attempt to garner “experience” or “credibility” on the “world stage” is irrelevant. Quite honestly, if the Germans or any other hodgepodge of collected Euro peons, find some American political tyro to be to their personal liking, that should automatically be sufficient evidence for that candidate’s immediate expulsion from the election process..
Since it was so important to court the Europeans, the Anointed One cancelled a visit to our wounded troops who are recovering at Landstuhl Medical Center and at the Ramstein Air Base. An Obama campaign shill/zombie said that such a visit would be “inappropriate” because that was during the “campaign-funded” part of his field trip. Considering that last blasphemous statement politically, (which is the only way that the left thinks) Obama would have been speaking to more registered American voters had he visited the wounded soldiers and stopped by the air base than he did in Berlin. Please keep in mind that the liberals “support the troops” they just don’t want to be bothered by them when the Europeans and the duplicitous media are waiting..
Strangely, Obama himself not more than a few lines into his monologue said, “I speak to you not as a candidate for President, but as a citizen—a proud citizen of the United States..” All right then, if Obama was just a “proud citizen”, and not a politician/candidate, then why not swing by and talk to the troops? Just for the record, I would like to know how just long he has been “proud” because we know that it took quite a while for his wife to finally reach that point..
Shortly there after, Obama said, “I don’t look like the Americans who’ve previously spoken in this great city…”. At this point, I feel that this speech which was supposedly titled, “A World that Stands as One”, should have been called, “Ich bin ein Black Guy”. I guess that the politics of racial recognition are acceptable as long as the white folks aren’t the ones doing the recognizing.
Obama felt compelled to start telling his “life story” as any politician does during a campaign stop OUTSIDE of the United States. His father, “wrote letters to universities until somebody, somewhere answered his prayers..” The liberals view themselves as God therefore they can never get beyond their own atheistic “Self as Savior” limitations. Universities don’t answer prayers, God does. That appears to prove either one or two things. Either Obama was not paying attention to the “Reverend” Wright’s sermons (otherwise known as the “hate filled homilies of horror”) or it points out just how infrequently he attended the church at all…
Obama then began to speak darkly (sorry..) of the “Soviet shadow” that swept across Eastern Europe. He spoke of a “retreat (that) would have allowed Communism to march across Europe.” History helper for the candidate: For generations, the liberals gleefully surveyed and paved the road that the Communists marched on… The liberals were the ones who were so enamoured with “Papa Joe” and his cronies during this period. The left has reflexively apologized for the crimes of their comrades regardless of where and when these crimes were committed. The left refused to accept that the Soviets were actively working towards America’s demise and in a number of cases, the lefties were ardently aiding and abetting the Communists in that task. After nearly seventy years, a liberal has apparently come to recognize and acknowledge the evils of the “Soviet shadow.” I suppose that we should be thankful for any concession from the left relative to their Communist cohorts regardless of how late in the Cold War it happened to arrive..
Here is a 21st century helpful hint for the Senator: try taking that approach relative to today’s “War on Terror”. It is hard to imagine that you are having trouble recognizing the “shadow” of radical Islam and its “march across Europe” or the radical elements fermenting and festering within our own borders. It is equally hard to imagine that you don’t see your statist friends enthusiastic enabling of the Islamofascists. You are either insanely gullible or you are inherently duplicitous. Neither character flaw is palatable in a commander in chief..
Obama just couldn’t resist paying homage to the left’s environmental Buddah Al Gore, when he went on about the “cars of Boston melting the ice caps..” Personally, I am more concerned about the preponderance of hot air that BHO/JFK was personally responsible for and the “carbon footprint” that “Air Hope-a-Dope” is depositing in our fragile atmosphere as it wings its way around the globe..
The left is still convinced that poverty is the root cause of all evil. On that, Obama said, “poverty and violence in Somalia breeds the terror of tomorrow..” Terror is not bred by poverty. (Actually, terror has been bred by the ineptitude of Carter and Clinton..) Terror comes from an individual’s lack of morality, lately inspired by flea bitten Imams who are inspired by their own warped interpretations of the Koran. Blaming terrorism (or crime) on the poor, insults the vast majority of the poor who have the virtue to understand that participating in terror (or crime) is immoral and abhorrent. If the left is correct about poverty causing terrorism, then the following must be true.
The overwhelming percentages of terrorists are Middle Eastern. The Middle East supplies the United States and the world with crude oil. At the inflated price that these savages are extorting per barrel, the streets of the Middle East should be lined with gold, but poverty is rampant. Why haven’t the collectivist liberals demanded that the emperors and the potentates “redistribute” the oil wealth, thereby eliminating Middle Eastern poverty and therefore terrorism, in a matter of minutes? It is infantile to even consider that as a realistic possibility, but that is what should logically transpire syllogistically, if we were to implement this twisted liberal “logic.” They will never understand that it is ideology and not income that drives the terrorist and that is just another reason why the left is inherently dangerous.
This was a great quote, “In Europe, the view that America is part of what has gone wrong in our world, rather than a force to help make it right, has become all too common..”” May I rephrase that? ..On the left in America, the view that America is completely responsible for all that has gone wrong in our world, rather than a force to help make it right, has become all too common.. Those of us even mildly observant have concluded that we are fighting a two front war with two enemies retaining similar goals, the terrorists and the liberals..
Obama the Red couldn’t help poking his weenie into the collectivist campfire when he spoke of wealth that “we” create and “we” must “share its benefits more equitably” because that would be “fair for all.” Even in front of hundreds of thousands, his redistributionist urges couldn’t be quelled. Who is this “we” that he spoke of? I prefer to think of it as the free market, but the left is absolutely convinced that their Soviet inspired centralized form of government creates wealth and that is the only kind of “creationism” that these boobs believe in..
Obama said that Europe and America must “send a direct message to Iran” about its nuclear “ambitions.” Senator, you are a little late relative to the “ambition” part, but it was adorable of you to try anyway. The left would send its “direct message” to Iran in a pretty pink envelope with a hint of perfume sprayed upon the paper.. I would prefer to send that “direct message” from the bomb bays of a fleet of well stocked B-52s. The Iranians hate us anyway, so I say lets give them a few megatons worth of good reasons to do so.
There were still more childish soliloquies, to “reduce the carbon”, to “give hope to those left behind”, to “shun discrimination” and to “keep the promise of equality”. My favorite from near the end of this knee slapper was, “every language is spoken in our country”. Thanks to the left, we are quickly reaching the point where we will “press twelve for English”…
If you need definitive proof of the inexperience of this liberal, please remember that every topic that Obama addressed was incubated and exacerbated by the policies and procedures of the liberals that have preceded him for the past sixty years and he didn’t even acknowledge that glaring fact. So what would an Obama administration be like? To suddenly expect the left to “change” its stripes would be, as the learned Dr. Gene Ciliberti says, the same as asking a chair to become a table..
With the Democrat’s proclivities for allowing the dead to vote within the inner cities, for counting every minority vote at least twice and for their bellowing for the felons to be allowed to vote again, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they demanded that the whole world be allowed to vote in November. If that ends up being the case, the new “King of the Universe of Fairness, Hope and Change” would be well on his way to victory over…uhh…who is he running against? Who??
