You know, Obama is embarrassed to be an American

Did he really say this? You know, I thought he'd have learned from Michelle's gaffes.
"You know, it's embarrassing when Europeans come over here, they all speak English, ..."
F-word you Pierre.
"... they speak French, they speak German. And then we go over to Europe, and all we can say [is], "Merci beaucoup." Right?"
Wrong pinko. Never a moment of embarrassment for this uni-lingual American. I say "Thank you, very much." Not that girlie language gibberish.

You know, Barack should go run for President of France, a country he isn't embarrassed about. You know, they really like Socialists over there.

Shall we assume that his daughters are bi- or tri-lingual?

You know, that is his business, not ours. Likewise, he can keep his nose out of what my children learned from their fine WEAC foreign language teachers.

You know, what embarrasses me, is a 47 year old presidential candidate who speaks with a Valley Girl verbal-tick.. You know.

There is that little matter of geography, concatenated with widespread use of multiple languages.

Now, consider a drink made with milk, ice cream, and optionally added flavoring, mixed in a blender to barely-flowing goo. I speak Rhode Island (frappe - technically ends with a long "A" from the French original word but I have never heard it), Massachusetts (cabinet), Connecticut (milk shake - which is ridiculous, there should be no ice cream in a milk shake - just powdered chocolate [optionally malted] and sugar, and I don't care where chains like McD got the term), and I think Maine (freezie?). Which covers about the same amount of territory as half of "western" Europe.

In Italy, 200 lire is translated as "thank you" even if the recipient is deaf.

Dad - I was thinking the same thing. When in Europe, everyone speaks VISA and Mastercard.
