Obama's boundless chutzpah
Who ever heard of an American political candidate going on a fact-finding mission to a foreign country and asking to deliver a speech at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin as if he is a world statesman of established renown?...

Barack Obama's chutzpah knows no bounds!
True, he is running for president of the United States, but why would not a nation such as Germany insist that John McCain be given the same privilege if Obama is so served?
Will it become customary now for all foreign statesmen visiting Germany to address huge rallies such as we witnessed on television this week to hear Barack Obama?
If Hillary Clinton had made such a request, the media would have crucified her as a megalomaniac! Even with McCain's length of service in the Senate, it seems very unlikely that he would ever have been granted such an outlandish request.
But the American media tumbles all over itself to report Obama's pre-emptive victory procession across the Middle East and Europe. He is lauded as a young messiah for every move he makes. I think the Republicans are just beginning to resent the media's foreordained anointment of Obama exactly as the supporters of Hillary Clinton did before Obama became the presumptive nominee with the rabid support of Democratic bigwigs.
The last presidential election was handed to George W. Bush over the lingering howls of the Democrats. This election this fall will be handed to Obama by Democratic superdelegates and an adoring media. When will the common citizen be recognized as capable again of making his/her own decisions without the intervention of these arrogant politicians and overweening know-it-all pundits on radio and TV?
Yesterday I went downtown to the license bureau to get my 2009 tabs for my truck. I had to laugh when I read the sign for the new $1.75 technology surcharge that was added to my fee.
Here is an agency that will not accept a credit card, a debit card, an electronic fund transfer from your bank, but they will kindly accept your good old-fashioned paper check. Maybe if they collect enough money with the idiot tax, they too will be able to do business as most of us do in this age of technology.
The left-wing loonies are out in force. The Democratic-run House Judiciary Committee is running "un-impeachment hearings." For what purpose? Wasting our tax dollars on self-righteous self-promotion, that's the purpose. Dennis Kucinich sees this as a way to continue his eternal search to focus the spotlight on himself to bolster his ever-dwindling relevance.
Then we have the "protestors" coming to the cities to "shut down" the Republican convention. This is all about "look at me," not politics.
I'll give you a clue, Democrats. If you want to change, vote for it this November. These loony tactics drive regular voters away, thus you are injuring your own cause.
The fact that carpet-bagging Al Franken is nominated for Senate shows this as well.
When the election results in November are not to your liking, look in the mirror as to the cause.
