The Berlin Speech


Not his most bestest speech, but he threaded the needle pretty well with crafting a pretty interesting, yet non controversial, speech about international affairs... not an easy task. Also, that was a lot of Germans. Waving American flags even. Remember when they shut down the city of Mainz because they were afraid of Bush protesters? Good times.

Right now, the right wing talking points appear to be that trying to convince Europe that terrorism is a global challenge is unAmerican and disrespectful, and that the United States isn't a part of the world. Uhm yeah.
