Laura Ingraham’s Blast

Laura’s E-Blast
July 25, 2008

“EUROPE FAWNS, AMERICA YAWNS: The political transformation is underway. The world is hungry for change … or maybe it’s just a bunch of screaming Germans hungry for sausages and beer.

Make no mistake: Barack Obama’s speech in Berlin’s Tiergarten park was one of the most revealing and, frankly, terrifying moments of the campaign so far. We witnessed a man who may very well be the next president of the United States APOLOGIZE to a bunch of foreigners for his own country’s failings! He told the crowd of 200,000 that he addressed them “as a fellow citizen of the world” and then dropped this bomb: “I know my country has not perfected itself. At times, we’ve struggled to keep the promise of liberty and equality for all of our people. We’ve made our share of mistakes, and there are times when our actions around the world have not lived up to our best intentions.”

Apparently lost on Obama and the crowd was the incredible irony that a Nazi flag would be flying over Berlin at this very moment if it weren’t for the sacrifices made by the United States and our allies in WWII; hundreds of thousands of Americans died to liberate Europe and prevent the spread of tyranny around the world.

The crowd, of course, was enthralled with the speech. But there’s a very simple reason why Obama’s been received like a rock star everywhere he goes in Europe: the European people have no desire to see America remain the world’s number one power!

Here’s the bottom line: The United States can’t afford a commander-in-chief who travels to other countries with his hat in his hand and begs for some understanding. We need a president who will stand up for America, not apologize on her behalf. And if Obama had no qualms about delivering this speech to the European public, what’s to stop him from doing it in private with Ahmadinejad in Iran?

Say goodbye to America, the superpower; say hello to America, the good global citizen.

  1. Yeah right, we need someone like Bush to tell the world to go to hell and we’ll do what we want, that makes sense? One can’t imagine how proud many Americans were to see over 200 hundred thousand coming to see an American that wasn’t a protest? And has America made mistakes, hell yeah where do you want to start…Chile, Iran, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Guatemala, Cuba, America’s Native Americans, Central America, Africa, corporate support for the Nazi’s early in the war, sell out to China on imports…that’s just a few? And as for you Laura it took women 146 years before you got the right to vote, slavery…

    If McCain went to Germany, he’d be lucky to get 200 people, however, George Bush would get probably over a hundred thousand. But the problem with George, is these would all be protesters…
