In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

  1. I hear Ben Rhodes’ opening line for Obama’s Berlin speech is:

    Ich bin ein stasi.

    Edits are going back and forth between White House and State. Some discussion as to– Ich bin ein stasi OR Ich bin Stasi.

    Victoria Nuland is on stand by for consult.

    1. Er ist ein Teufel, gnädige Frau! “Stasi” ist einfach nicht gut genug…

      Der “Kennedy” Bezug, aber…Mir gefällt es!

  2. Another bang for the buck trip. Just read that the G8 spent $50₤ million on the gabfest. The “bystander’s” comment sums it up nicely. Of course, the IMF paid Ireland/UK back with another $1.27 billion bailout today.

    By 2pm, when President Obama’s armoured Cadillac – “the Beast” – swept through the centre of Enniskillen in a 20-vehicle motorcade, 50 police officers were lining the sides of the town’s old bridge, with armoured Landrovers parked at either end and inflatable police dinghies buzzing slowly in the lough below.

    “All that for one man?” said one bystander, as the small crowd, barely outnumbering the officers, turned and went back to their business with a grin and a shrug.

    1. P.S. to the NRA: One other thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun: a fully armored vehicle. But apparently, normal American citizens aren’t allowed to own those, either.

      OTOH, we’ve found out what it takes to get Obama to work a full day — ship him across the pond to the land of blarney.

  3. laughing.. 15 min “Walk & Talk” .. heck BO can’t walk and chew his gum at the same time

    Germany’s PM Merkel was seen muttering.. great, everyone else has to deal with the King of the Sand Traps until tomorrow afternoon. I get a bonus day of Tuesday into Wednesday. Maybe I should stay in Ireland.

    Meanwhile.. Has Blarney (Carney) been resting up with new things to spin once his fearless leader returns?

    1. Who talks like this? You mean other than Louis XIV and Genghis Khan.

      “And what my girls are learning is that every day, their home gets bigger and bigger and bigger. It is no longer just the South Side of Chicago or Washington D.C., but it is Moneygall, it is Dublin — it is the world. And that is true for you.”

      1. You? Is that “me” you? Oh, yes, I am such a world citizen, Michelle–I have been Europe a total of 10 days–and never to London or Paris. What insulting garbage! Let’s see how the world embraces your kids when their pop is no longer president.

  4. It tends to rain in Ireland. Do the Marines have a detail standing by with umbrellas at port arms?

    I’m just waiting for him to have a full-dress honor guard clean up after Bo. It’s nothing less than his TRUE feelings about the United States’ service personnel anyway…
