"At the town-hall style appearance in Strasbourg, Obama invited questions from his French and German audience heavily made up of students in a sports arena. Even though Obama talked about the event as a way to interact with young foreigners, he did most of the talking and took only a handful of questions.

He acknowledged "my French and German are terrible" but noted that translators were on hand. Much like during his presidential campaign, Obama paced the stage with a microphone, like a talk show host."

Too much cultism, not enough realism.

Do people actually believe that the demonstration in NY against Wall Street was spontaneous? Look at the people who are protesting. They don't work, they don't pay taxes. They are sponsored by the democrat party.

That is all the democrat party does..sponsor protests, make the signs, gives out loudspeaker, gives the chants.

Please tell the Wall Street people to move to Florida. Move out, taxes are lower here.

Please inform the "protesters" to protest the high salaries of movie stars...is Julia Roberts worth $20,000,000 for one movie?

Cap the salary for movie stars.

Please inform the "protesters" to protest the high salaries of athletes...$45,000,000 for 4 years is outrageous.

Cap the salary for athletes.

This mass protesting is a result of the sixties' mentality. Vote out democrats.

Let's get back to a civilized world. Democrats encourage lawlessness.

Democrats want to take away your freedoms.

Vote them out in 2010 and 2012. Vote out local candidates who want to raise your taxes, too.

You forgot to cap the salaries of ALL politicians (Local, State, and Federal) at $52,000 per year, with no pension and no medical benefits. Any Politician caught taking a bribe along with the one offering the bribe will face a mandatory public execution ten minutes after the trial ends.

I live in Germany.
In Germany everyone is honored.

France is a country which has iits own past.
Obama is a product of a country which strives hard to realize the AMERICAN DREAM.

Most of the citizens of the globe have other views and DREAMS..

Are you serious?

Well, movie stars and athletes are not asking for any bailout.
Movie stars and athletes haven't run any ponzi schemes or given bad loans.

I spent more time in Germany than you probablyu have on this planet and most assuredly did more for your country's freedom and prosperity than you did ... I know your conscript paper tiger armed forces, so I can say that without reservation.

Having said that, you do have the basics down right, however. The system here sucks bigtime and it is called entitlement addiction. It works very simply. Give everyone everything they want for doing nothing but voting for the socialists that give it to them.

Pay for this by penalizing the people that work to keep the place running halfways decently. As you see, it is pretty much the same thing you had in Europe, to the point that we call it Euro-socialism.

You might kindly tell everyone how bankrupt your countries are and how hopeless a return to sanity seems, with most of the newborn citizens being muslim and not becoming part of European society, not speaking the languages.

Say, here they come from south of the border too and they make us press one for English ...

Globalization really sucks.

Do us a favor and keep the socialist bastarb ... we'll trade him and his big-butted black widow wife for .... hmm, let's say Merkel, Beckenbauer and ... ah what the hell that's enough and we'll throw in both Clinton's for next year's first round draft picks.

(Geez, I sure hope he is as thick as he seems, we really need to get rid of these duds :-)
