Why do Europeans love Obama so much?
I have noticed over and over again on the web, and talking with my friends in Europe that Europeans really love Obama, in fact if they could vote it would be a landslide election. Of course all the info they get is from the media, so what is the European media telling people about him. You can do a Google search and see long lists of glowing articles about him. In the last two elections here in the US in 2000 and 2004 all of Europe thought that the democrats would win by a landslide and in both cases they were shocked and dismayed.
Maybe it is because Obama wants America to be like Europe in many ways. He wants higher gas prices, wants to ban new drilling, and limit the importation of oil. He wants to pay for universal health care, just like Europe. He want to raise taxes to the point that you are working for the government. Obama wants a weaker military, just like most of Europe.
Maybe it is true that he has become a celebrity. Everyone knows how Europe loves those.
Europeans are blogging how they would love to be Americans, just to vote in this election.
But we here in America don’t want the be like Europe, with little economic growth, with a growing stronghold of atheism, with a weaker family structure than even the United States.
If you are in Europe, please tell me your view of Obama, I really would like to know if/why you support him.
