Embarrassed by His Countrymen
July 27, 2008
The presumptive Democratic nominee for President of the United States is embarrassed by his fellow countrymen:
“It’s embarrassing when Europeans come over here, they all speak English, they speak French, they speak German. And then we go over to Europe and all we can say is merci beaucoup.”
Liberals castigate everyone for being Eurocentric, but whose approval do they seek?
Bush’s popularity in Africa is something like 80%, they love him in Colombia, etc. But since Europeans don’t like him (except for Blair, and Sarko, and Merkel, and Berlusconi, and…), Bush is unpopular. Q.E.D.
Even if any of this actually mattered, as Charles Krauthammer hilariously pointed out, Obama himself can’t speak French – or Spanish.
