Citizen of the World?

Editorial - July 25th, 2008 - The New York Sun

So Barack Obama, whose father is from Kenya and who attended school in Indonesia, now appears before a crowd of 200,000 cheering Germans in Berlin to proclaim himself a "citizen of the world." It makes you wonder whether he's running for president of America or secretary general of the United Nations . . .


It's amazing how far away Mr. Obama will travel to avoid Senator McCain's invitation to participate in a series of joint town hall meetings. As the Democratic primary season wore on, the more voters got to see of Mr. Obama the less they seemed to like him. Maybe Mr. Obama's campaign aides are hoping that if they can just keep him out of America for the rest of the campaign he might be able to eke out a victory in November.

The speech Obama gave was filled with Marxist pledges to give America's wealth away to the poor of other nations. It was also filled with inaccurate statements, even mis-stating his father's reason for coming to America among a litany of falsehoods (listed here).

The arrogance of Obama even doing this foreign trip was echoed when we find out that Barack Obama has established a transition team already. This is usually done when the candidate is confident of victory.

Of course it is obvious, he thinks he has already won.

What is also obvious to Americans, he is not one of us.
