And of course the French President acted like an idiot as always hehe

We're having friends over tonight so I guess I should get off my ass and clean a little bit. Maybe.

I saw the speech he gave in Berlin; it was ace. Did you get to see him?

No no he didn't give any speech in Paris. I walked passed the Presidential residence that day though, which I guess is where he was ^^

obama didn't give a speech in paris because of political reasons. it would not go over well in middle- and small-town america to have crowds of thousands of frenchmen praising and cheering the senator from illinois. john kerry was accused of being more "french" than "american" back in 2004, so while i'm sure obama would have loved to have made some big show at the élysée, it wouldn't have played well for him back in the u.s.

I know you are an Obama supporter Markus but from the outside what do you think about Obama representing the United States abroad?

Do you think he has the ability to help repair America’s image in the world?

Yeah, same question here. I'm always curious to know what the perception of the candidates is outside of the U.S., where the media often creates all these crazy distortions.

Don't be too optimistic. Obama stands for the interests of the US-oligarchy. He brings hope, because he's black. But that's mostly a wrong conclusion. He is not a Black Panther. Even gay mayors or woman chancellors would never fight for more humanity, although being representatives of an oppressed section of the population. Thats my observation. But let's be very optimistic! What do you think?

Well....repair? :P

As long as I can remember people over here have been pissed off at all the stuff America is doing around the world. Bush just took it to a whole new level :P

I guess people will like him less once he will represent the US when tehre are some conflicts of interest...Afghanistan etc. But still it will be a million times better than Bush :)

"Repair" may have been the wrong word; I understand that repair is a bit farfetched. I think what I should have said was "improve." I'm not looking for 100% but anything in the black would be much needed at this point...
