What's funny to me is this newspaper article I read today said that Obama's speech today in Germany was one of the most anticipated in U.S. History.
Is not this type of coverage a bit over the top? They -- the media -- seem to treat Obama like he is the second coming of Christ.
The media noted that flags were cut out of cardboard so the crowd had something to wave at Obama.
Of course, it would make sense that opinion of Obama in Germany, and the rest of the world as well -- including the radical Muslims -- would be high on Obama, considering his plans to calm down the Arrogant America. He has a vision of the New World Order.
Two-hundred thousand Europeans showed up to listen to Obama because they think he supports them in their view that America is to blame for much of what ails the world today.
Obama wants to decrease the military, decrease our military mite around the world, which would bode well for radical nations around the world who don't want America "bullying" them around, and other nations who don't want to see America "bullying" the rest of the world.
With a diminished American military, one with no defense weapons in space (which Obama pledges to stop), we won't be able to defend ourselves against a nuclear attack, making America more vulnerable.
However blind they are that a more vulnerable America makes it far easier for Iran and North Korea to get its way. Maybe even provides an opportunity for them to build up their nuclear programs (without the United States knowing about it.)
Obama wants to raise our taxes, both in the name of government programs intended to "help" the poor, but also in the name of global warming or climate change. Obama actually thinks he's doing something good by all of this, but other nations are eager to watch as all this government results in a sputtering American economy, which brings the "arrogant" America more on par with the rest of the world.
This is not necessarily my opinion, but the opinion I think a good portion of the rest of the world has toward America, and Obama. Not all of the rest of the world, but at least enough to garnish excitement about attending an Obama speech with as much "anticipation" as the Germans did for this speech.
And I don't know if the media is trying to pull one over on the American voter here, but I do know this: A large number of American voters know what the media is up to, as evidenced by a new Fox News Poll showing Obama has lost 2 points to McCain in the past week, and is now only up by 1 point.
They know that the American media will do whatever it takes to muster up sales, and right now Obama is good for sales far more than McCain, as evidenced by the one reporter available when McCain got off a plane the other day.
You'd think they'd pretend to be non-bias for one day and have at least 2 reporters on McCain. Or at least one magazine cover with McCain on it. When I went to the library the other day, Obama was on the cover of six magazines, McCain zero.
So, while McCain trudges forward, the media has turned a blind eye to him and is drumming up enthusiasm toward Obama, particularly now that the rest of the world is all hyped up about him. But an intelligent America is not buying into the hype, as polls show.
The neatest thing of all about the "anticipation" and "love" of the rest of the world for Barack Hussein Obama is: They don't get a vote.
