The Real Fools
The following quote is attributed to an article in a German-language paper in the Czech Republic knows as the Prager Zeitung. I was unable to find the article on their website--it does not appear to be all that thorough--however further research/commentary indicates it may have simply been a comment from a reader of one of their articles.
Nonetheless, the comment, translated from German into English, provides an interesting perspective into the American voting base. Could the comment be accurate with respect to the masses who supported and voted for Obama? Could we be about to repeat the offense in similar fashion on the GOP side? I'll let you be the judge.
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."
"The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”
