He's far, far more popular than any German politician and I don't see what's wrong with that. So Annika's answer is neither surprising nor wrong in any shape or form...I would have been shocked if she said she wants to meet Angela Merkel
Well,I can't speak intelligently about either Merkel or Joachim Gauck,but I'd much rather meet my OWN president,whether a good leader or bad,than some incompetent buffoon from some OTHER country.If aye DID seek an audience with a foreign president,it would be someone who had actually accomplished something....of course,if you consider crippling an already-weak economy by running up a 7 TRILLION-dollar deficit in less than 4 years,then o-BUM-a is your guy
Why is he so popular in Germany?Did he promise a blow job to every German male in return for tariff concessions(and perhaps a vibrator for all the women?)
?My guess is that Germans don't really pay close attention to what's happening in the US,and I can't blame them cuz it's not their country,but maybe they see him as some kind of hero who will impose pure-hearted,altruistic European-modelled socialism on the greedy,shallow gringos....Jimmie,if you had seen so many of your countrymen gunned down by automatic weapons...and you KNEW that the piece-of-shit American president had made a deal with arms dealers to not monitor foreign assault-weapons sales(i.e.,to our wealthier narcos who have plenty of money to buy them),then you might not be so quick to accept the bullshit that emanates from that vile fraud's propaganda machine
This wasn't a personal attack at all on you,Jimmie,but it's more personal for us in Mexico because it's not just political rhetoric...it's about life-and-death issues,as I indicate above...am off to work so will read any response later,but thank you for your input

Don't you just love it when someone rambles aimlessly for 5 minutes and then says, "To make a long story short"?
