Germany's Hangover - The Thrill is Gone

Much has been made of Barak Hussein Obama's "Foreign Experience World-Tour" compliments of the American Taxpayer and his speech in front of Germany's trip to Germany and the overwhelming "success" of his speech in Berlin in front of more than 200,000 Germans, in which he spoke of Europe's responsibilities.

Just to recap bobama_berlin_rallyefore I get to my main point, Barak Hussein Obama gave a speech in Berlin in front of a crowd estimated at more than 200,000 Germans.  What has not been reported in the American media (but has been reported elsewhere) is that Obama was not the main draw for the day!  Der Spiegel Online reported that a free concert featuring two of Germany's most popular bands, reggae artist Patrice and rock band Reamonn were scheduled to perform that day, in that venue. 

So here we are several days removed from a fake, setup "speech" in front of a bunch of concert goers who were not there primarily to see Obama and we learn that Germany now has an Obama sized hangover.

It seems that the same German politicians that were drunk with Obama-mania have sobered up to the reality of what Obama actually said in his speech. During his speech in front of 200,000 drunk German's, Obama declared that more NATO troops were needed in Afghanistan to allow the U.S. to cut it's presence.  The "billions of dollars" the U.S. would save he told CNN News on Friday, 7/25 could "finance lower taxes for middle class families in the United States."

Dieter Niebel, the Secretary General of the German Free Democrats (the opposition party to Chancellor Angela Merkel) responded to Obama by saying "Under no circumstances will the German taxpayer pay with more money and more troops for Afghanistan for tax cuts in the U.S."

Welcome to George Bush's world, Mr. Obama.

Obama has lived under the myth that once George Bush is out of office, that the rest of the world will simply rush to his (Obama's) side once he's elected President to share more of the burden of the War on Terror. 

Another Obama myth shattered. Simply because his Greatness, Barak Hussein Obama declares it doesn't mean it's true. 

Erwin Huber, chairman of the center-right Christian Social Union of Bavaria, called Mr. Obama's statement "a disappointment for Europe and Germany." Mr. Huber, who belongs to the sister party of Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats, also said that "it is the opposite of solidarity and partnership when one side is to make more sacrifices and the other gains an advantage from it."

Translation: Go piss up a rope, Obama.  Germany has been getting a free ride from the U.S. in the War on Terror and it's not about to pony up now simply because the occupant of the White House has changed.  Nay, Germany will continue to live under the umbrella of protection that the United States of America has provided, and will continue to criticize just how that protection is provided.

This is the type of inexperience that 143 days in the United States Senate that would manifest itself should the most inexperienced, incompetent, unqualified person to ever run for President occupy 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. 

"His disciples lead him in, and he just does the rest. That deaf, dumb and blind kid sure plays a mean pinball."
