Germany on Obama's Europe Rant: 'Overbearing, Arrogant, Absurd'

OBAMA LECTURES EUROPE ON DANGERS OF ONGOING DEBT CRISIS. SERIOUSLY.

I’m reminded this morning, as has been the case multiple times over the past three years, of Rush Limbaugh’s comments in respect to his time on the radio during the Clinton years — “the best thing that ever happened to my listenership,” Rush said, “the gift that keeps on giving.” Such is the case with the unbelievable presidency — and the utter failure thereof –of Barack Hussein Obama, and his effect on The Rat’s Right. Muchas gracias, el presidente.

Try as I might to focus on other issues, this guy just keeps on giving — to the extent that I am compelled to write about his latest antics, lest I fall hopelessly behind. Speaking of which; not content with merely limiting his condescending lectures to Americans and Congressional Republicans, Mr. Know-It-All, and his trusty sidekick, lil’ Timmy, have been getting after Europe pretty good lately as well — with the same predictable results Obama receives at home: “Pitiful and sad,” said one newspaper. “Overbearing, arrogant and absurd,” said another. Yep, that’s our boy king, alright.

Only Comrade Obama has large enough brass cojones to lecture Europeans ( or ANYONE) on the dangers of their ongoing debt crisis; let me say it again slowly in case you missed it:

B-a-r-a-c-k  O-b-a-m-a  i-s  n-o-w  l-e-c-t-u-r-i-n-g  E-u-r-o-p-e  o-n  t-h-e  d-a-n-g-e-r-s  o-f  i-t-s  O-N-G-O-I-N-G  D-E-B-T  C-R-I-S-I-S.

Here’s Captain Hypocrisy in all of his splendiferous hypocritical glory earlier this week:

“European inaction is scaring the world; they have not fully healed from the crisis back in 2007 and never fully dealt with all the challenges that their banking system faced. It’s now being compounded by what’s happening in Greece. They’re going through a financial crisis that is scaring the world, and they’re trying to take responsible actions, but those actions haven’t been quite as quick as they need to be.”

How in the hell can this guy keep a straight face? Is that not the most incredibly ballsy thing (on record) that’s ever come out of this hypocrite’s mouth? This is the guy who was going to regain the “respect” and “trust” around the world that he told us George Bush had squandered. Seriously? Barack Obama is quickly becoming (if he’s not already there) the laughingstock of the entire world. WOW.

Offended by Captain Delusional’s unsolicited advice, Europeans have suggested that the U.S. get its own house in order before it thinks about lecturing the world. (Um, YEAH) Obama’s remarks were ”arrogant” and “absurd,” Germans said on Wednesday. Observers in Germany claim (correctly) that Obama is in no position to criticize other countries, given America’s own $14-trillion pile of national debt, and the ongoing stalemate over the the U.S. deficit. Some Europeans claim (again, correctly) that Obama is simply trying in vain to deflect attention from problems at home. Welcome to “pin the tail on the donkey,” Europe; you just correctly assessed “the donkey.”

From the widely-circulated Bild:

“Obama’s lecture on the euro crisis … is overbearing, arrogant and absurd. … In a nutshell, he is claiming that Europe is to blame for the current financial crisis, which is ‘scaring the world.’ Excuse me?”

The American president seems to have forgotten a few details. The most important trigger of the financial and economic crisis was U.S. banks and their insane real-estate dealings. The U.S. is still piling up debt; the American Congress is crippled by a battle between the right and the left. The banks are gambling just as recklessly as they did before the crisis. The president’s scolding is a pathetic attempt to distract attention from his own failures. How embarrassing.

From the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung:

Dark clouds have gathered over the American president. The gloomy state of the economy is putting a damper on Obama’s future prospects. The optimism of the past is gone, replaced by a cheap search for a scapegoat.”

“Obama thinks he has found one. He blames the Europeans for reacting too late to the debt crisis. We Europeans are apparently taking on too little new debt to get out of the crisis. But we are already feeling the wonderful effects of borrowing too much money.”

Finally, from the financial daily Handelsblatt:

That’s not how friends talk to each other. That applies particularly to friends who have themselves failed to get a handle on their own, self-made crisis. Barack Obama governs a country where, despite billions in state aid, the economy is stagnating, companies refuse to invest despite calls for patriotism, and which gets embroiled in one political trench war after another … Now this country is dispensing advice, suggestions and finger-pointing.”

“These are suggestions that have already failed to work in the U.S. Aside from the lack of success, the collateral damage is immense. It manifests itself in a loss of government credibility, a loss of trust in the currency and the paralysis of any sort of dynamism — because the crushing debt mountain is robbing the famously optimistic Americans of their confidence.”

“The fact that Barack Obama knows full well that things are much more complicated in reality does not help. Indeed, it does the opposite. In the desperate battle for his re-election he’d rather construct myths, such as claiming that the Europeans alone are responsible for the American mess. Not only is this fundamentally wrong, but — coming as it does from a friend — it’s downright pitiful and sad.”

Yes it is, Germany…yes it is. Oh, and that “friend” thing? You might want to check with Israel on that.

You don’t suppose Roger Ailes has gotten to all of those German newspapers, do you?
