A Babelfish translation of the caption embedded in the image EXIF data:

Obama had thanked the citizen of the capital and “the German people” for the prelude of its speech in Berlin for it prepared receipt. He does not come as a candidate for the US president shank to Berlin, but as American citizens, he said in its 20 minutes is late speech begun. The road 17 of June between Brandenburger gate and the victory column was at this time full from humans. Photo: Gero Breloer DPA/lbn +++(c) DPA - Bildfunk+++

For me, that photo evokes the sound of a toilet flushing.

Barry wants to take $2500 from every American alive to help alleviate “world poverty”.

As if it’s never been done before.

We’ve been doing it for almost a Century already.

And they *STILL* hate us and want to kill us.

Revelation 13
1And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

2And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

3And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

4And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

5And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

6And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

7And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

8And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

9If any man have an ear, let him hear.

10He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

11And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

12And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

13And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

14And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

15And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

16And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

Anyone remember the guy who wanted a picture of Obama and Obama told him to get lost. That was a USA citizen and happened in the USA though.

Obama's trip is a farce.

Germans are susceptible to the Cult of Personality. This collectivist rabble is frightening. They look like they could easily be dispatched to do the Master’s bidding. I keep coming back to “The Final Conflict” of the Omen Series starring Sam Neil as Damien Thorne aka The Anti-Christ and the comparisons are chilling. I refer to his following as The Disciples of the Watch, which anyone who is familiar with the movie would understand. I know it’s just a movie and it’s ludicrous to try to establish similarities but does anyone doubt that these monsters are capable of evil if directed by You Know Who?

EuroSocialist are people waiting for someone to tell them what to do, that is BHO’s base in the US also...this is not going to be well received by the fly-over voter. IMO the arrogance of the Media & the Pretender has now jumped the shark.

In all seriousness, this picture freaks me out.

That was my wonder too. Why exactly are they are so enamored by this guy? I don't get it. Very strange phenomenon going on here. Has he performed any miracles that I'm not aware of?

It's not like there isn't a precedent for Germans going ballistic over a lunatic whose greatest talent was reading prepared speeches.

Just about any line from the show works for this photo:

"Genius! By seemingly embracing the cliches of the vest, he is underscoring its excruciating banality." "

"Vould you like to touch my monkey? Touch him! Love him! Liebe meine abst-monkey"

"I'm happy as a little GIIIIIRL."

Look into my eyes, what do you see?
Cult of personality
I know your anger, I know your dreams
I’ve been everything you want to be
I’m the cult of personality
Like mussolini and kennedy
I’m the cult of personality
Cult of personality
Cult of personality

Neon lights, a nobel prize
The mirror speaks, the reflection lies
You don’t have to follow me
Only you can set me free
I sell the things you need to be
I’m the smiling face on your t.v.
I’m the cult of personality
I exploit you still you love me

I tell you one and one makes three
I’m the cult of personality
Like joseph stalin and gandi
I’m the cult of personality
Cult of personality
Cult of personality

Neon lights a nobel prize
A leader speaks, that leader dies
You don’t have to follow me
Only you can set you free

You gave me fortune
You gave me fame
You me power in your god’s name
I’m every person you need to be
I’m the cult of personality
Look into my eyes, what do you see?
Cult of personality
I know your anger, I know your dreams
I’ve been everything you want to be
I’m the cult of personality
Like mussolini and kennedy
I’m the cult of personality
Cult of personality

Neon lights, a nobel prize
The mirror speaks, the reflection lies

I’m the cult of personality
I exploit you still you love me

I tell you one and one makes three
I’m the cult of personality
Like joseph stalin and gandi
I’m the cult of personality
