Obama, CItizen of the World?

leave a comment »

For the first time in the United States since the American Revolutionary War, we have a presidential candidate who was a citizen of another country.

Is being citizen of the world is more important to Barack Obama?

“People of Berlin, people of the world, this is our moment. This is our time,” he declared, offering himself “not as a candidate for president, but as a citizen, a proud citizen of the United States and a fellow citizen of the world.”

Obama’s speech, the centerpiece of his presidential-style sweep of the Middle East and Europe, set a global agenda as expansive and audacious as any contemplated by a candidate for United States president.

Putting Obama in the White House will set forth a new agenda that has nothing to do with the middle class.
