What a pompous presumptive person.. He could at least wait until he is appointed Leader in Germany –
His speech there as a “private citizen” was a joke – he trotted out his goat header dad and his mothers middle American experience.. are people buying this tripe?

FIRST OF ALL THAT WAS OVER A MILLION PEOPLE!
NOT THOUSANDS, THEY CAME TO HEAR THE TRUTH!
BECAUSE THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE!
HE IS A WORLD LEADER, AMERICA IS BLESSED TO HAVE
A MAN LIKE HIM IN OUR COUNTRY, THAT'S WHAT THE
PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD KNOW, THEY AREN'T PLAYING THAT I'M A CONSERVATIVE AND I'M A LIBERAL
GAME, THAT WE PLAY IN THE UNITED STATES!
THE PEOPLE IN THE WORLD KNOW HE SHOULD BE THE
NEXT PRESIDENT, AND HE WILL BE ABLE TO WALK DOWN
PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE WHEN HE IS ELECTED, AND NOT
WORRY ABOUT GETTING PELTED WITH EGGS!

I never saw a shot of anwhere near 200,000 people much less 1 million.
I wouls saw if Obama is so popular in Europe , then you should appoint him as your leader so he can "set you free".
He is a total fraud with no experience and we dont need on the job training here.

Being a indipendent, Phil sounds like he's already drank the koolaid. Too bad he doesn't sound more objective. He sounds to angry to be objective anyway.

Phil, there was over 200,000 not over a million, and there were two reggae concerts before and free beer. HMMMM wonder why there were that many. Kinda easy to keep drunk people around if you're offering more free beer.

No opinion on the visit, think it was another typical politician, smooth at that, making his move for the presidency. We'll see if it works or not. No man should be treated like a saint or a semi-god phil. If you really look at any man the warts will show, and yes he does have them too.

How many electoral votes will Germany have come November?
