Barack Obama Go Home!
I guess Europe has gotten tierd of President Obama this week. The American Media has sparkled Americans with Michelle Obama’s fashion, while keeping the fact that Europe is tired of the President. Iain Martin posted this article about Obama, here’s the link if you care to read.
Martin ask, Isn’t it time for him to go home yet? It is good, in theory, that the new President of the United States is taking so much time to tour Europe. He arrived in London last Tuesday, has been to Strasbourg, Prague yesterday and now he’s off to Turkey. It shows, I suppose, that he cares about the outside world and that is ‘A Good Thing’. But his long stay means that we are hearing rather a lot from him, way too much in fact. His speeches have long under delivered, usually leaving a faintly empty sensation in this listener even though I welcomed, moderately, his victory last year as offering the possibility of a fresh start and a boost to confidence.
Martin added, Am I alone in finding him increasingly to be something of a bore? Most of the serious answers that I listened to were interminable, windy and not very impressive. At points there were pauses so long that it appeared he had simply lost his train of thought. From Obama, “When I was born,” (Everything usually leads back to him, you’ll notice)… “the world was divided, and our nations were faced with very different circumstances. Few people would have predicted that someone like me would one day become an American President.” (Him again).
Martin then ask, Is there a computer which churns this stuff out for him? Yes Martin, their is. This is one of the reasons I read foreign news. You know the American Media will not print something like this. Especially when it’s aimed for their choice for President. Has Obama overstayed his welcome or not?
Hum…sounds like an EMPTYSUIT to me.
