Obama Is Europe’s Man

by | 16th, June 2008

SAYS Paul: “New York Magazine’s Daily Intel blog warns Europeans that the more they cheer for Barack Obama, the greater the chance he will lose”:

The Americans who would listen to the advice of Western Europe are the ones who listen to the BBC feed on NPR in the morning for their international news and opinion — in other words, the people who are already going to vote for Obama. The people who he is trying to win over at this very moment, as he campaigns in the red states, are the ones who will view a European endorsement as a total minus. Remember when there was a movement to rename French Fries “Freedom Fries” over here? Yeah, it’s those people who will be alienated by your support. Frankly, they think you’re a bunch of Socialist sissies.
