Das Thrill is Gone

Obama is in the news on the other side of the pond:

In Europe, where more than 200,000 people thronged a Berlin rally in 2008 to hear Barack Obama speak, there's disappointment that he hasn't kept his promise to close the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, and perceptions that he's shunting blame for the financial crisis across the Atlantic.

Blame Bush, blame Berlin. Whatever you do, don't accept any responsibility for your own failures.
