Obama "extraordinarily impressed" by European *leadership* . . .

Posted by Olog-hai on Sat Apr 4 19:42:36 2009

Well, what's not impressive about a fascist majority in Italy (which just took over the majority European People's Party in Brussels), a sizable neo-Nazi minority in Austria (and a burgeoning one in the source country for that party), a pseudodemocracy of a federal government in Brussels that's not accountable to the people whatsoever, a "social market economy" forced on whatever country joins that imperial union, yada yada yada . . . ?

(There's some more on the air, where Obama talks about Europe's leadership in the world. Oh, if he'd only look beyond the surface . . . how about what they're doing in Africa?)

Obama says he's impressed by European leadership

STRASBOURG, France (AP) President Barack Obama says political maneuvering in Europe is about the same as it in the United States.

He says there's a lot of "wheeling and dealing," too.

Obama spoke Saturday at a news conference after the 60th anniversary NATO summit in Strasbourg, France.

It was his first meeting of this kind as president.

Obama pronounced himself "extraordinarily impressed" by the quality of leadership he saw at the gathering.

He says he had built relationships with many of the European leaders present, either having met them before his election or on their visits to Washington.
