Der Spiegel Writes …’Obama Comes Across as Cold, Arrogant and Elitist’


I  thought that President Barack Obama was an International rock star, man of mystery and loved by Europe … Guess not. From the German media media Der Spiegel come the following that ‘Obama Comes Across as Cold, Arrogant and Elitist.’

It was a failure of historic proportions.With US President Barack Obama’s Democrats having lost control of the House, there seems little hope for progress during his two remaining years, say German commentators. Obama himself, they say, bears much of the blame.

On Tuesday, US President Barack Obama and his Democratic party were issued a stinging defeat in the mid-term elections as the Republicans gained control of the House of Representatives and installed themselves in 22 governor’s mansions.

Several German opinion-makers were clear that the election was more of a referendum on the president, who comes across as “cold, arrogant, and elitist,” and less of an endorsement of the Republicans and their policies. There is widespread agreement in the editorial pages that Obama failed to make the case for his administration’s accomplishments, a fact that he himself has acknowledged.

      I recall reading a previous article concerning Obama’s trip to Indonesia….and the diplomats there described him as someone who does nothing but eats and s~~t’s…..!!!!!!!

      Watch out Asia, here comes the a~~hole in his empty suit…who is he going to offend this time…?

      An elitist in politics is considered someone that is only there for themselves and could care less about the average Joe….actually thought of as a snob!!!

      Couldn’t care less if he bows and scrapes and kisses rings now. The world has his measure. A heart felt thank you to the voters of the United States of America:)
