    Obama returns to Berlin, no longer a 'superstar'

    WASHINGTON — Five years ago, when Americans had not yet made up their minds on their choice for president, Europe had. More than 200,000 people crowded the streets of Berlin — a favorite backdrop for U.S. politicians reaching for history — to hear then-candidate Barack Obama promise to turn the page on the unpopular policies of George W. Bush.

    "Germany meets the superstar," the news magazine Der Spiegel proclaimed on its cover.

    As he heads to Europe on Sunday for a visit that will culminate with a sequel to that Berlin speech three days later, Obama has been demoted to mere president.

    For many Europeans, Obama's tenure has been a lesson in lowering expectations. >>>

    "He's become somewhat demystified."

    Obama's failure to close the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, detention center, his escalation of drone warfare and small steps on global warming are among the reasons the sheen has dulled, polling shows. Another may have been added with the recent revelations that Obama has expanded Bush-era surveillance of phone calls and email. >>>

    The audience awaiting him Wednesday will undoubtedly be more skeptical. >>>

    In his unabashedly lofty speech five years ago, Obama asked the massive crowd to envision a world without nuclear weapons, a planet Earth healed, without racial or sectarian divisions.

    "These are the walls we must tear down," Obama said. "This is the moment to stand as one."

    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    What is the power of the Secretary General of the UN vis a vis the US President?

    Obama’s German Storm

    LONDON — Germany is normally a welcoming place for American leaders. But President Barack Obama will walk into a German storm Tuesday provoked by revelations about the Prism and Boundless Informant (who comes up with these names?) surveillance programs of the U.S. National Security Agency.

    No nation, after the Nazis and the Stasi, has such intense feelings about personal privacy as Germany. The very word “Datenschutz,” or data protection, is a revered one. The notion that the United States has been able to access the e-mails or Facebook accounts or Skype conversations of German citizens has been described as “monstrous” by Peter Schaar, the official responsible for enforcing Germany’s strict privacy rules. When the German bureaucracy starts talking about monstrous American behavior, take note. >>>

    There is a parallel between the drones and the surveillance program. Overshoot is inevitable when essential checks and balances erode. One flying robot becomes an army of them dropping bombs. A request to monitor one e-mail account becomes a technology-driven lurch toward capturing all the Internet traffic coming into the United States. And Germans start having nightmares about the digital footprints of their lives stored in a vast facility in Utah. >>>

    NYTimes

    The Germans at least, seem to be able to remember some of their history. Meanwhile all Mosques are secure because they are the only ones exempt from the 0'Bamboozlers surveillance techniques.

    Kind of like airport security aint it?

    Why settle for being the former president of a (backward,racist) country when you can be 'president' of the (liberal) world? You wanna see REAL graft and corruption in seek of tyrannical power?? Oooo... look no further than the UN.

    Clinton sought this at the end of his second term too. Onward, upward and that sort of thing ...

    The President has to go through Congress to spend the money of hard-working Americans. The Secretary General does not.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.
