Many congratulations to obama for finally standing up to say something about his Muslim brothers in Iraq who had the "fair and democratic election" that went so wrong. Of course, it helps when the leader of Germany is standing right beside you the whole time. I can imagine the conversation that went on just before he went out there:
"So, uhhhh, you're going to stand by me if I say mean things?"
"Oh, sure. Say what you'd like, barack. We're here."
"And, uhhhh, if they get mean back, I can count on you to help me, right? I mean, I don't usually make decisions on my own or anything."
"Sure, you go sound tough. We'll be right behind you."
And then he tried to be tough. Unfortunately for him, nobody even blinked an eye.
