OR MAYBE I JUST MISUNDERSTOOD THE POINT
Perhaps he was temporarily rendered senseless by the crowd, estimated at 65,000 people, that showed up for Obama's rally in Roseburg ,Oregon. Whatever the reason, Obama once again showed his proclivity for international bias, that probably overshadows his concern for the "beer drinking, gun toting and church going" Americans.
This is not as bad a knock on us Americans as his wife Michelle's pejorative comment about never being proud of America until her husband decided to run for President. Never the less, the statement about other countries feelings about us, shows me he is more concerned about International opinion than he is about our maintaining our present life style! "We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK,"
He said this as part of an attack on the presumptive Republican nominee, John McCain. Since,as President, he would be riding in a taxpayer payed limousine ,and living in a White House with the best air conditioning system tax payers can buy. I guess he doesn't have to worry if we have to put up with discomforts and alterations in our life to satisfy his Ecological aspirations.
While President Bush is a "Johnny come lately"on a call for drilling for fossil fuels here at home, Obama is throwing in the towel for Americans, because he doesn't want to offend the rest of he world. Never mind the fact that China and India are marching toward financial greatness with little or no regard for the Kyoto agreement from which they are exempt!
