Posted on 07/25/2008 5:25:04 AM PDT by Zakeet
So Barack Obama, whose father is from Kenya and who attended school in Indonesia, now appears before a crowd of 200,000 cheering Germans in Berlin to proclaim himself a "citizen of the world." It makes you wonder whether he's running for president of America or secretary general of the United Nations, and it is reminiscent of Senator Kerry's ill-fated 2004 debate pledge to subject American policies to a "global test."
Not that these columns are against a judicious internationalism. Mr. Obama's turn toward the idea of global responsibility is actually a welcome note coming from someone who spent the primary campaign demagoguing Senator Clinton on the charge that free trade deals her husband signed were sucking American jobs from Ohio to Mexico and Canada. If you are really a "citizen of the world," why should it matter?
We'd settle for a president who is a citizen of America, thank you very much. Or at least one with the humility to recognize that the president is elected by Americans, not Germans.
It's amazing how far away Mr. Obama will travel to avoid Senator McCain's invitation to participate in a series of joint town hall meetings. As the Democratic primary season wore on, the more voters got to see of Mr. Obama the less they seemed to like him. Maybe Mr. Obama's campaign aides are hoping that if they can just keep him out of America for the rest of the campaign he might be able to eke out a victory in November.

The graphic below shows, the only difference between o-B-ama and o-S-ama is just a bit of B.S.
I think Obama may end up spending most of his time this campaign in Europe.
By the way, I saw a woman debating Chrissy Mathews and some punk Dem on MSNBC and she made a great point. The reason Obama made this trip was to give him some experience, otherwise he has none. Of course Mathews was busy talking over her mouthing Bush and the Dem was busy lying.
“he’s running for president of America or secretary general of the United Nations”
POTUS, then UN Sec Gen where he makes the deal with Israel...
I still do not understand how a person can run for president and not have to prove he is a natural born citizen. Is there no proof required. Is it easier to get a passport than run for president?
I could care less if his mother was a baby mama or whether he was Muslim as a youth (except this makes another proven
lie). But I care that the Constitution is followed.
Couldn’t a court force him to prove his citizenship?
And then the doomsday clock starts ticking and the world has 7 years left.
Why or why is he traveling like he is president? You ain’t there yet, obama my boy.
Left Behind describes the Anti-Christ and Obama fits in many ways except Obama is far too stupid. 57 States give me a break.
Unless he will have 57 -60 States in his tenth year as POTUS.
I have yet to see conclusive evidence he is an American citizen. Some photoshopped image of a Hawaiian Certification doesn’t cut it.
I think he is counting on the voters being stupid, and it looks like a lot of them are. Now they are claiming when he said 57 states, he meant he had been to some of them more than once. I also think he thinks getting elected is just a minor technicality. If he loses he will just take it anyway. Recounts recounts and more recounts. If he can get this far without having to prove he is a US citizen, he won’t meet with much opposition when he steals an election, especially if it is close.
If he can get in, and he will, he doesn't plan on giving it up. I think when he talks about his 10th year he is talking about ruler of the world, not POTUS.
Those are nice little gaffs thrown in to make him “human”.
And McCain thinks the MSM are his pals, ditto middle-of-the-roaders.
YOU CAN’T BE SERIOUS.... STUPID? Americans, voters or not, are certifiably stupid - the whole world knows it - they have Bill Clintons’ election - twice - to verify it.
I am dancing with glee. Obama just lost the November election.
1) He did not mention Jesse Owens in his Brandenburg gate Speech before a measely 50,000 circus goers. 2) He did not visit US troops in hospital. 3) He has no viable energy policy position. 4) He has no record of acheivement of presidential timbre. 5) He has made statements repeatedly which reveal nauvete and even stupidity. 6) His campaign exhibits media forms such as posters and web sites which are historically totalitarian 7) Obama has shown that he is easily controllable by liberal socialist aristocratic money and associated ideology which are distinctly un-American and unpatriotic. The only thing Obama has going for him at this point is that John McCain has not yet taken advantage of these weaknesses to put Obama to bed for good.
I beleive McCain is biding his time , waiting for a time line of political attack from which Obama can not recover prior to the Nov. election.
Obama as a candidate has offered himself to early in his political career. He is toast.
Better still, composted toast.
Between Hillary and Hussein, I would prefer Hillary by a mile. Make that a million miles.
you think another clinton presidency will be any better?
have you forgotten waco?
contra american laws, u.s. military tanks were used to kill religious innocents.
children were eating their spaghetti o’s and ask their parents,
“is this a made for tv movie, or did it happen?”
most americans had no idea, nor did they care.
Yes. Not a doubt in my mind.
have you forgotten waco?
Waco was a fluke. Get over it.
