that this is huge. The RW pundits just really can't get this story in a box they can control, so they are in panic mode.

The images of hundreds of thousands greeting him in Europe will freaking blow them away!

4. "just really can't get this story in a box they can control" - you
are so right! It will be amusing to listen to how they try to spin this. And probably revolting.

5. Andre Mitchell said "It will make Obama seem even more foreign"
Apparently it is "foreign" for an American President to have a positive image in Europe. She also said it will seem "anti-American". And this "reporter" still has her job?

7. Just heard another winger say he can't look "TOO presidential"
or he'll seem "presumptuous." Unbelievable.

14. Pretty low bar is right!
I just saw a squirrel that looked more presidential than Bush. Tail proudly flipping back and forth. Gathering food to take home to his family. Climbing to the top on his own with no help from rigged tree branches.

Senator Obama was more presidential than Bush when he was a twinkle in his mother's eye. (Come to think of it, that was quite some twinkle, eh?)

Did the events below make JFK look more "foreign"?





Translation: Kennedy: "I am a Berliner"
Triumph for freedom - Hundreds of thousands celebrate the American President.

15. campbell brown from CNN - on Obama's suggestion to learn another language...
was just about to ask whether it could be seen as 'unpatriotic' to learn another language but one of the panel, i forget who it was, just pounded her on that before she could finish her line. one of the best public ass whoopins' I've seen her deservedly get.

19. They're out of their minds. The point is this is equivalent
to not wanting Blacks to read and write. In my opinion the mindset is still there. Let's be serious. There is NOT one single disadvantage to learning another language. ONLY advantage. To think it's unpatriotic is retarded.

I wonder hearing that the Chrysler building is being sold to the Chinese is unpatriotic. No, that's just helping the national debt.

32. I no what you mean...
and it has been happening a lot more lately. Brown is another Republicon who uses bush's talking points a lot. I really,really can't stand that Rick Sanchez on CNN their are so many things that are obvious and irritating about him. He seems to think that when we turn on a newscast we want to hear his opinion and desciption about a piece he is about to show. He also talks over the guests..

If that sounds mysogynist, too bad. I'm a woman so I can say it. And it's true.

12. This is what I keep thinking the Republicans will say
in order to discount Obama's enthusiastic reception on his tour: Who cares if foreign countries like him? He's running for President of the United States, not President of Europe.

16. I think the MSM is following him around waiting for a "mistake."
ANY "mistake" they can blow up into something "controversial."

It's crazy how many such "mistakes" they let McCain get away with!!!

23. wait until he gets to Europe

They will turn out in the hundreds of thousands as a way to try and encourage the United States to make the right decision.

It will be their only opportunity to 'vote'.

33. The poor dears. I have an image of Brit Hume, home pouting in
a corner of his kitchen, refusing phone calls.

Actually it's kind of hard to tell when Brit Hume is pouting and when he is not pouting. He always seems to be pouting, whether he's pouting or not.

Europeans are likely to turn out in droves to hear Senator Obama's addresses, and who could blame them? They've had to endure 8 years of Bush as well. They could use a lift, and Obama will likely provide it.

38. M$M has been in an absolute stir since Obama mentioned the
words, "media ownership diversity."

Got all the one-percenters in a tizzy. What will happen to their multi-million yearly contracts?

We should all take a lesson from the news readers. They know how to act in their own best interests.
