The usual suspects are apoplectic about the fact that President Obama admitted that recently the US has been derisive and dismissive towards Europe. Of course as I pointed out earlier that's not all that he said, but it suddenly came to me why these people are so upset at what he said. THEY are the main ones he is referring to when he talks about people having those fucked up attitudes towards Europe. You don't see liberals or progressives or Democrats wagging their fingers at the EU or France or Spain. Its the wingnuts who came up with "Freedom Fries" and it was John McCain who said he might not meet with the President of Spain. What they are really made about is that President Obama called them out and as Congressman Grayson said the other day, "a stuck pig squeals loudest".
