What is the best way to say this? Considering the current demographics of Germany, and the readiness state of the Bundeswehr, they will be very lucky to hold Berlin and Hamburg.

Time to leave. Keep our alliance with, and support of, Israel. Keep the Strait of Hormuz open. Leave Afghanistan. Otherwise, cut off all foreign aid, including that which goes to the Palestians and Egypt, and just let these guys stew in their own mess.

‘Fan in Chief’ Obama honors Olympians at the White House

“You guys inspired us, and as president, you made me especially proud to see what you guys did on the world stage,” the president continued. “You could not have been better ambassadors.”

(Note to Pres. - Might want to walk back the reference to "ambassadors")

I see some irony in these actions. The Moslem Jihad is quite possibly going to succeed in getting its best friend in the world thrown out of the American Presidency, or, perhaps it will trigger what the tinfoilers among us expect.

Not a penny to any foreign country except Israel, bring all our troops home and seal the borders. University of Texas and North Dakota State University both evacuated for bomb threats today. Is the October surprise to ensure BO’s re-election starting early?

Obama campaign in 2008:
“The world hates the US because of Bush. Elect Obama and the world will respect and like the US again.”

My paraphrase; but they said EXACTLY this and need to called out on it by the Romney campaign sometime soon.

Germany? Not sure why they were attacked.

The US embassy in Sudan says all protesters have been “expelled” from inside the compound.

U of TX Austin and N Dakota State U are being evacuated because of bomb threats.

The Germans showed us that they loved Obama when he was campaigning for President the first time. They knew he was useless and it was a ploy on their part to reduce our competitiveness with them in the business world. Now the chickens are coming home to roost for them. What’s that Billy Dean song......SHOULDA BEEN A COWBOY!
