America is not enough…

July 23rd, 2008 · No Comments · Politics

…Obama is shooting for President of the WORLD! I will say that it’s nice to imagine a politician representing America in a major foreign country being received with entusiasm (sorry, all 12 citizens of Standbyyourmanistan, your love of W doesn’t cut it).

That being said, the ongoing pre-election Coronation of Obama continues to bug me. Illustrating the point:

“It is not going to be a political speech,” said a senior [Obama] foreign policy adviser, who spoke to reporters on background. “When the president of the United States goes and gives a speech, it is not a political speech or a political rally.”

“But he is not president of the United States,” a reporter reminded the adviser.
