That was the joke headline a Boston Globe writer named Kirk Scharfenberg placed atop a 1980 editorial about a speech by President Jimmy Carter, thinking it would be removed before it was printed. But it wasn’t found and fixed until tens of thousands of papers had been printed.

Pity Mr. Scharfenberg is no longer with us. Because his memorable gaffe is the perfect heading for President Obama’s performance yesterday in Berlin, whence he delivered his usual bromides about peace with justice and the danger of nuclear arms. The muted crowd says it all: just 4,500 people, all carefully invited.

Normally it would be unfair to judge a president’s remarks by their reception rather than by the substance. But not in Obama’s case. Because this is the flip side to the frenzy he generated five years ago, when he went to Berlin as a candidate and spoke to an adoring crowd of 200,000.

Back then, OBAMA WAS A “ROCK STAR.” He spoke to the masses as a “citizen of the world.” MOST NEWS COVERAGE PASSED OVER THE SUBSTANCE, which seemed to be that if we all came together in A GLOBAL KUMBAYA MOMENT, AIDS would be defeated, the people of Bangladesh fed, the slaughter in Darfur ended, nuclear arms abolished, Muslim extremism put to rest and so on.

Now Obama has returned as president. For most men, that would only make him more powerful. But the DIMINISHED CROWDS & ENTHUSIASM parallel the strained ties with allies, not to mention the GENERAL DISAPPOINTMENT THAT HIS PERSONALITY HASN’T BEEN ENOUGH TO DELIVER THE “HOPE AND CHANGE” HE’D PROMISED.

In fairness to President Obama, it’s not that his Berlin speech yesterday was any more mushy than the one in 2008. It’s just that the first time around, so many chose not to notice.

Thank you for republicans. Why should congress be able to opt out of programs they force in the public? Shit president nobama is letting unions opt out. He surely would not want to piss off his base.

Union got waivers that extended the time period before they have to comply.

There was never the option to for unions to "opt out"

Wow, Bush abandons Afghanistan to go to war in a country that had nothing to do with 9-11 or Bin Laden & you have the nerve to blame Obama.
If you want a Democracy,as you claim, then doesn't everyone vote??
The only hope for peace in Afghanistan is a government that is open for all. Otherwise you guarantee war.
You are the most irresponsible, dishonest poster here.

"Bush abandons Afghanistan "???

Dumb Dave, you are a Kool-Aid drinking moron.

Abandon = "To give up by leaving or ceasing to operate or inhabit"

OK flake, tell how Bush "abandoned" Afghanistan...

<quoted text> DB, you should go see a doctor or something, seriously! I'm not being funny bro at all. Somethings wrong that has you playing these crazy scenarios in your head. Now you're saying Obama is setting up a future terrorist attack so he could remain in office. Everyday it's a different scenario deviously thought of by Obama with plans to takeover the world like "pinky & the brain." The man is the president of the USA. America is still America & always will be. It's hard to give your claims any credit when, you watched the conspiracy of Bush & binLaden unfold but, you deny any connection though it's clear as day. After watching that debacle displayed, I believe anything is possible but, what true connections do you really have? You're making up stuff in your head line a " paranoid schizophrenic." Where are you getting all this stuff from DB?

You are correct. It does in fact say "voluntarily inactive". Do you know why that is? The answer is simple. If mrs. nobama did not give up her license voluntarily it would have been court ordered. She committed a no no.

Prove it or STFU.

The answer is that to maintain your law license you need to follow through with yearly educational activities & maintain malpractice insurance.

But hey, you keep believing that April Fool's Day email sent out to dupe dumbasses like you.

Bring up a factcheck.org that disproves anything I have posted to you. That you are not a liberal loon? That you do not detest those who are successful? That you despise those idiots who bust their butts to provide for their families? Those who who support our police? Those who support our military? Those who want less government intrusion into their lives? Those who think president nobama is a disaster? Those who hate to see the deficit increasing at record rates?
Looking foreword to your stock response, "It's Bush's Fault".

<quoted text> How exactly did you expect this thing to end DB? America is not at war with another country, a stationary object, a single landmass populated by people in which we could easily target, bomb, & destroy. Al Qaeda is not an army. They are an organization stretched across a plethora of countries. You will never win against an organization with no true leader or base in which to attack. They will continue to receive aid & weaponry from similar organizations across the world for no more than a distraction. This is not an Obama ordeal. This is Bush's mess playing itself out exactly how it was destined to when he decided to chase a ghost by invading a country for a handful of criminals. You beat Al Qaeda by homeland security not military might!
"You beat Al Qaeda by homeland security not military might!"

Right. Common urban mindset. Put bars on the windows and doors so Trayvon can't get you. Coward.

Duh! Trayvon will never go away until you walk outside and kick his azz. But you'd rather put dem chain links on your windows and live in fear.

Wait until Trayvon steals your Welfare Cheese from the mailbox. Wutcha gonna do den, eh, bro?
