All right! This is a bunch of Pure Crap!!!! Not to mention Pure Gall! You better be hoping we keep our Soverignty..Who helped keep you free in WW2? Who helped rebuild Europe? Do ya suppose if we are all one big happy ‘one world government’ we would be able to help you as we have in the past? Crap that’s what it is crap and bull!
The European media would like to take away Americans’ sovereign rights to elect their own president. They are contending the right to vote in the upcoming American elections:
“American presidential elections are not ‘home affairs’. American decisions have repercussions all over the globe…. Hence, the world should be given the right to vote.”
And they are salivating over Obama:
The left-wing Frankfurter Rundschau compares Obama not only to Kennedy, but also to Presidents Lincoln and Roosevelt
“Obama is the candidate of the idealists…. Obama also happens to be the candidate of choice for the foreign press…. Many in Europe would like nothing more than a ‘European’ America.”
In the Netherlands, the left-leaning De Volkskrant reports that the US primaries are giving the Dutch “goose bumps…. Obama has the authenticity that the Dutch electorate craves.”
In France, the center-left Libération says the new leader of the French Socialist Party should be someone with Obama’s profile:
“The French Left seeks a charismatic leader, age 46, of mixed race, to deliver a message of hope and unity. At a time when American Democrats are discovering their new hero, it would be a good time for the Socialist Party and their friends to find a Barack Obama to end their internal quarrels.”
Meanwhile, in an online poll at the center-left Le Nouvel Observateur, Obama has an overwhelming 60 percent of the 2,680 votes cast, double Clinton’s 30 percent. The late President Kennedy is lagging behind, with only 4 percent of the votes.
In Britain, the centrist Times of London confirms that the Tories are suffering an identity crisis by reporting that
“Tories and Labour both hope for a sprinkling of Barack Obama’s stardust. Ripples of excitement from the campaign of the presidential contender have crossed the Atlantic, and British politicians are agog.”
After months of glorifying Obama, European media have tried to portray his losses to New York Senator Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire and Nevada as part of an elaborate conspiracy to keep a black man from becoming the 44th president of the United States. After Clinton won the New Hampshire primary, for example, the Milan-based, center-right Il Giornale reported that Obama was the victim of vote-rigging.
In Germany, the Financial Times Deutschland opines:
“there is something narcissistic at the heart of the idea that Clinton was breaking down at the thought that America might be recklessly throwing away the chance to be governed by her. Chronic egocentrism, narcissism, self-pity-these are exactly the qualities that to this day make Bill Clinton so hated by his enemies.”
The state-sponsored Deutsche Welle argues that although Clinton’s victory in New Hampshire is being put down to her display of ‘genuine’ emotion, it is actually a further example of “US politics descending into self-parody.”
And so on, ad nauseum.
The last quote and most insightful ironically, comes from the LeftistGuardian:
“reflecting on the wide-open campaign of 2008, it’s obvious that British critics-and European critics generally-are guilty of smug superiority and ignorance in writing off the strengths of the American system…. Instead of dismissing American democracy in our snooty way, we need to ask what we can learn.”
With the people of Europe casting their votes, America would be just like the E.U. Europe hardly has the skerrick of a leg to stand on with their own democracy in tatters. The right to referendum has been lost. Leftist and weak-willed leaders have conceded their power to the unelected E.U. elite.
If the mainstream media of Europe is anything to go by, America is perhaps the last bastion where Leftist thinking hasn’t yet completely drowned out any other voice. What a mess.

Salty Dog comment sums it up:
europes preference should serve as an indicator of just what kind of a president that obama would make were he to be elected.
its enough to scare any sane american into a republican vote were they contemplating otherwise.
obviously the europeans feel obama would be more easily manipulated to suit their leftist socialist needs. this should serve as a wake up call for americans, as europe obviously has plans for them that they would not approve of.
it is unbelievable that europe has the gall to proclaim they should have a say in american politics, perhaps america should have had a say in their politics as well, if we had been given some imput, i can tell you there would not be an E.U in existence today.
