Yesterday I wrote about the Obama campaigns apparent belief that he will soon coroneted as President of the United States. Now today Instapundit believes he is running for President of the entire earth based on this news from Patrick Ruffini:
This is pretty extraordinary. A candidate for the American Presidency is using flyers printed in German to turn people out for his campaign rally in Berlin on Thursday. This flyer can be found on a bilingual page on BarackObama.com advertising the event:
The German flyers bear Obama’s campaign logo and say “Paid for by Obama for America.”~~~
So, this isn’t just some sober, high-minded foreign policy speech, part of a foreign trip occurring under the auspices of his official Senate office. It is a campaign rally occuring on foreign soil. They are using the same tactics to turn out Germans to an event as they would to any rally right here in America.~~~
The sea of Germans drummed up by the Obama campaign will be used as props to tell us Americans how to vote, and the campaign isn’t trying to pretend otherwise. That’s breathtakingly arrogant, and par for the course for Barack Obama.
I’m at a loss to understand this mans arrogance. Popularity for Obama in Europe will do NOTHING for him in the United States. Is it just for the photo op of thousands of adoring Germans groveling over the messiah? Or is it just one huge ego trip?
I’m betting its both.
The man gets creepier by the day.
