Obama in Deutschland

I owe this one to a guy over at Matthew Yglesias’ blog, at the Atlantic. Notice the resemblances, right down to the angle of the diagonals. Very Sprockets! Meanwhile, some nutter moron named Patrick Ruffini is complaining that Obama is using a foreign language (German) to communicate with foreigners (Germans) in a foreign country (Germany). What socialist nonsense will follow this act of depravity?! Pay him a visit and let him know what you think, why don’t you?

As Yglesias says, “Apparently it’s now unpatriotic to so much as concede that they speak foreign languages in foreign countries. Or maybe American politicians should only be allowed to speak in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and the UK.”

By the way, the last president of this country who spoke a foreign language with any degree of fluency was Thomas Jefferson. And we wonder how we’ve got ourselves so isolated and arrogant.

  1. Could Obama possibly be a president that sees other countries as sovereign nations and not as wannabe States of the U.S.?


  2. Laugh or cry. I’m afraid we will end up w/the government we deserve, and Obama will be another ignored genius. If his name had been O’Bama, he could have snagged a few votes from the hard-core Irish contingent. I remember a black woman telling me “Black mens is pitiful”. Well, “mericans is pitiful.” I’m grateful to be aware enough to see it unraveling. (That’s my pessimistic side. I have a very positive ‘n spiritual side, too…)

  3. While Obama may have a different opinion, you have to appreciate the simplicity of the Bush approach to understanding sovereign nations:

    “Tribal sovereignty means that; it’s sovereign. I mean, you’re a — you’ve been given sovereignty, and you’re viewed as a sovereign entity. And therefore the relationship between the federal government and tribes is one between sovereign entities” –President Bush, Aug. 6, 2004
