Our European Arrogance? NO NEED TO APOLOGIZE!

Below is an email I just received, thanks AGB, and I realize it has been circulating since April, 2009 but the powerful message is still timely. I don't know about you, but I am sick and tired of Barack Obama bashing this great nation.

Ever since the Obama's hit the national stage it has been made popular to apologize and worse to bash us on foreign soil. At the start of their presidential campaign up to and including their failed bid in Copenhagen to host the Olympics, the apologist-in-chief couldn't resist his anti-American rhetoric.

The below email went viral, apparently in response to Obama's Anti-American Euro-tour. He had the audacity to explain to a French crowd that,
“In America, there is a failure to appreciate Europe’s leading role in the world. Instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive.”

Of course all of this big bad arrogance in America was prior to his rise to the WH. Barack Hussein Obama, The One, arrived to fix it all...Maybe, now the bride of Barack can finally be proud of our country.

Powerful Email (I sourced it all and it is amazingly accurate and humble):

1. The American Cemetery at Aisne-Marne, France: 2289 of our Military dead

2. The American Cemetery at Ardennes, Belgium: 5329 of our Military dead

3. The American Cemetery at Brittany, France: 4410 of our Military dead.

Apologize to no one. Remind those of our sacrifice and don't confuse arrogance with leadership.

If I added correctly, the count is 104,366 dead.(With the Unknown and Missing it's more!)

And we have to watch an American elected leader who apologizes to Europe and the Middle East that our country is "arrogant"!!

By the way, the offer made by the soviets was much bigger than the Americans. Just for the record.
