Read this — eventually we will all hate Obama too

Take a look at this post.

The media is very schizophrenic in nature.  This article does highlight a very important point which is that Europe will eventually turn on Barack Obama as soon as something happens that can be depicted as cowboy diplomacy if he is elected President.  Obama was treated as royalty with over 200 thousand folks hanging on his every word in Berlin.  This love affair is romantic but often short lived.  It speaks not to the man himself but to the nature of our foreign relationships.  The underlying issue is that America is loved for its money only, and hated for its superpower.  No country that amasses so much military and economic power goes unchallenged to at a minimum balance the power scale.  This will be a painful lesson but one that will be repeated in every American Presidency.
