Democratic presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) arrives to deliver a speech at the Victory Column in Tiergarten Park in Berlin, July 24, 2008
El Rushbo on the Barack Obama Berlin speech today:
Rush Limbaugh accuses Obama of believe that he will single-handedly reverse the damages caused by the US, which is apparently a nation of philistines.
â€œThis is change. But ladies and gentlemen, if you are wondering when you hear Obama talk about change, this is it. The change is: America sucks, America’s deficient, America’s guilty, but America is now willing now to pay the price because we have a Messiah who understands the faults, the egregious errors made by the United States and her people. We are racist, sexists, bigots, homophobes. We discriminate against people who worship differently than we do, have skin color different from ours, and we have not always behaved properly in the world. And we torture. And we, of course, are biased against people who want to get into our country illegally. We have a lot to pay for. Not to mention that we are primarily the country responsible for climate change, shrinking the Atlantic coastline, melting the Arctic ice. This is the change. You want change? This is the change. Now, I think he knew he was on some thin ice.â€
Flap thought he had heard this speech before and he HAD. The presentation was excellent, short on substance and will probably mean little in the long run up to the political conventions.
Not too many voters in Berlin, Germany.
