Right-Wingers Flip Out: Obama's a Citizen of the World!
If the McCain campaign and the right blogosphere are horrified by Barack Obama because he called himself a "citizen of the world" in his Berlin speech, then they should be really furious at the liberal hippie who said this:
I've had to make some very difficult decisions, as you know, and I made the decisions based upon what I think is in the best interest of my country, the security of my country. But I also believe the decisions I have made will end up helping people realize the great blessings of liberty. I believe people ought to be able to worship freely, or not worship at all, but you're equally a citizen of the world. I believe that poverty and hopelessness in the spirit can be changed. I believe the United States has got an obligation to help others.
...And so the purpose of my visit here to Vienna has been to work with my European Union counterparts to join in a common alliance for the good of mankind.
Wait -- that was no liberal hippie, that was George W. Bush in 2006!
