Drudge has the transcript of Obama’s speech in Berlin.
I’ve never heard a major political speech of this scope that had the term “herding goats” in it… especially by the third paragraph.
As I expected, there were a few “blame America” euro-suckups. Here’s just one toward the end of the speech:
I know my country has not perfected itself. At times, we’ve struggled to keep the promise of liberty and equality for all of our people. We’ve made our share of mistakes, and there are times when our actions around the world have not lived up to our best intentions.
Mistakes? Like Reagan precipitating the fall of the Berlin wall, crumbling the Soviet Union, or the U.S. saving Europe’s tea-sipping, cheese-eating asses — twice — from the very nation in which Obama was speaking?
The Berlin crowd seemed to love it, so with any luck, Obama will be elected president… of Germany.
Update: A Mississippi death row inmate who was convicted of beating a man to death with a claw hammer used his final statement before he was executed last night to… endorse Barack Obama.
“Claw hammer killers for Obama!” Ah, change.
