You can always count on Europe. As President Hanky Panky's approval rates are falling—and rightly so—his European admirers are growing by the day, with more joining the fan-club every time he manages to bring America further down:
President Obama makes US popular in Europe again, Pew poll says

Europeans have grown fonder of the US since Barack Obama became President, but Israeli affections have cooled and the Muslim world has barely noticed the new man in the White House.

These are the findings of a global opinion survey published by the Pew Research Centre yesterday. The poll found the biggest change in mood in Western Europe.
Well yeah, of course. Falling economy, rising unemployment, deceitful Left-wing politicians running the show—and record deficits—while seizing private businesses, intimidating their shareholders into silence and submission, and devising ever more audacious taxpayer money-grabbing schemes compared to which Bernie's Ponzi looks like amateur night: now, thank to Obama, my Eurofellow-citizens can truly identify with America.

Quite predictably, the French are the biggest Marxist-America groupies:
The French love America, with 75 per cent pronouncing themselves favourably disposed towards the US. Britain rings in second with nearly 70 per cent, up 16 points since last year.
I'm getting tired of writing I told you so, and you're probably tired of reading it, but still, when it comes to Obama and the French: I told you why he was the perfect candidate, when he was so unfortunately elected.

And no, it has nothing to do with a sudden, renewed Gallic love for the U.S. of A.—Make no mistake, the French are as anti-American as ever. Bush gave them a fierce, proud and powerful America, and they hate him for that. Obama is the agent of a declining one and even, perhaps, the artisan of her demise1.

And they love him for that.

"The greatest pleasure is to break your enemies, to drive them before you, to take all the things that have been theirs, to hear the weeping of those who cherished them, to press in your arms the most desirable of their women—Genghis Khan."

Call me Mr Not-Very-Nice but I can't help drawing connections between these two bits of news coming down the wire this morning. First the Times (of London), that has taken this preposterous habit of calling the terrorists "militants":
Osama bin Laden's son 'killed in US drone strike'

Osama bin Laden’s son Sa’ad was is (sic) thought to have been killed by a US strike in Pakistan, it emerged today.

Sa’ad bin Laden, a prominent figure in the murky relationship between Iran and al Qaeda, was believed to have gone to Pakistan after spending a number of years under house arrest in Iran, according to US intelligence officials.

It is understood that a missile fired from a drone aircraft killed him earlier this year this year, according to a report on US National Public Radio.
Ka-boom. Who's your Daddy now?

Next, Fox News. Emphasis mine for, you know, drawing connections:
Stone Age Murder:1 Spear Wound Shows Human Killed Neanderthal

Newly analyzed remains suggest that a modern human killed a Neanderthal man in what is now Iraq between 50,000 and 75,000 years ago.

The finding is scant but tantalizing evidence for a theory that modern humans helped to kill off the Neanderthals.

The probable weapon of choice: A thrown spear.
Has it been so long since the 101st pulverized Saddam Hussein's rabid offspring? Man, time flies.

Still, as I was saying in introduction, I see connections and progress here. An alternate title for this entry could have been, perhaps:

The Modern Man
From Thrown Spears To Unmanned Aerial Vehicles: Whacking Neanderthals Since the Stone Age (and loving it).

I am pretty sure I'm not the only one enjoying the irony here:
"Swine flu may force Muslims to abandon Haj pilgrimage to Mecca"
No Holy Barbecue of Hajj this year.

Oh well. Allah can't always be akbar, can he?

And because regulars of this blog like it, and newcomers might miss the "Holy Barbecue of Hajj" reference, here's a repost:

America, America, hast thou forgotten thine finest thinkers?
"Give no bounties, make equal laws, secure life and property, and you need not give alms. Open the doors of opportunity to talent and virtue and they do themselves justice, and property will not be in bad hands. In a free and just commonwealth, property rushes from the idle and imbecile to the industrious, brave and persevering." — Ralph Waldo Emerson, quoted in Paul Johnson's Intellectuals (p. 142).
Meanwhile, the White House Obamination is pulling all the strings to drag the USA down to the level of France, and further downward, if he gets a chance.

Thanks for wrecking the place before I have any chance to get there Barry.

Make no mistake though, and take it from this Frenchman: the real cost of socialized health-care is a spiraling free fall to misery — which, incidentally, includes lower health-care standards — for it is a decisive point of no return down the road to Socialist serfdom. Once they get this far-reaching wealth-killing device in place, the rest of society falls with few hope to recover, if any: businesses and jobs, freedom and ethics, everything goes down the drain.

Et merde! Have you learned anything from the failure that is Europe?
