What a strange float! But erloser means ‘savior’ according to the translator I checked. An upside-down savior who’s head has cracked the cement it landed on? Maybe ‘loser’ is correct after all.

It actually means Savior as in the Messiah and the correct spelling is Erlöser or Erloeser

The Germans, after all, have experience with “saviors” who turn out other than advertised.

ROTFLOL! As I started reading I thought you had made a spelling error. As I got to the end, I realized you didn't.

Maybe they’re saying “the savior” is cracked?

“The savior” has fallen?

“The savior” has fallen and cracked up?

Crash and crack savior?

I don’t know, I guess I’m not supposed to get those Germans and their sense of humor.

That's why this is a great float!

Just a year ago, the Germans (along with over half of Americans, and much of the rest of the world) were practically worshiping Obama. Now, he's crashed to earth. It's like the left lost their saviour.

The moral of this float: Just because the MSM gives you wings and a halo, it doesn’t mean you can fly.

If you go to the website it translates erloser as liberator. I checked it against an on-line translator site & got savior. Looks like the savior went boom!

"Erloser" might very well be 'savior' but the picture shows Obama(space)der(Loser). The translation would be "Obama the Loser.

Actually it's "Erlöser" or "Erloeser" (for the umlaut-deficient), a religious title which usually refers to Christ as the Redeemer. "And deliver us from evil" translates into "und erloese uns von dem Boesen" in German. Erloeser -> he who delivers others.
