Sacre Bleu! Obama To Celebrate Independence Day In...France?

Bad enough that the guys can't bother to stick around on native soil during our greatest national holiday, but to flee overseas in order to raise some money for his foundering re-election campaign?  And to France, no less, scorners of all the fruits of our free land?  Breitbart:

Apparently tiring of US soil as a source of campaign dollars, the Obama campaign is headed overseas -- with its celebrity friends in tow. The European Obama campaign starts next week in Paris on July 4 with a reception organized by various fundraising heavy-hitters. Independence Day fundraisers in Paris – now that’s a flag-waving campaign.

The Obama campaign will host events in Geneva, Switzerland in August as part of their “European outreach effort.” George Clooney will headline a fundraiser there, with 150 tickets going for $20,000 per piece.

Now wait, I know what your thinking: "Wow.  It really is all about him".  But that could not be further from the truth.

Actually, Obama is making a great sacrifice here.  You know he and Moochelle would love to spend the 4th of July kicking back at a barbecue, scarfing down hot dogs and ice cream and drinking sweet, syrupy sodas. But Obama is going through great pains here to re-enact a great scene in American history:  He is none other than the re-incarnation of Ben Franklin, and he is re-enacting 'ol Poor Richard's 1776 trip to France, undertaken to raise money to sustain the American Revolution.

And here we have Barack, bringing history alive 236 years later, as he goes to the French begging for money to help sustain his particular revolution, hoping to find a sympathetic hearing among the Continent's socialists.  A latter-day Founding Father, he is! ( Really - note all the  "adjustments" he's made recently  to the Constitution as well...)

He's not disrespecting America by turning his back on us on Independence Day; that's just FOX News talk. He's actually just trying to educate and enlighten our people by replaying a great historical ignorant f*cking racist.  If only the American people weren't so dumb, they'd  be grateful to have a great man like Barack Obama, sacrificing his holiday in order to help them.

And himself.  To plenty of foreign money.   But that's a patriotic story for another day...

Obama will not be in France on the July 4th; George Clooney will be. Learn to read.

That's OK. While the initial story was mis-reported (I suppose even Obama isn't that dumb, although his gratuitous dislike of his own nation makes any insult seem plausible), I have no doubt that while his physical body will be in America on Independence Day - going thru the motions at various ceremonies, with an aide whispering in his ear, "cover your heart, sir!" - his soul will be in France, collecting Eurocash from Eurotrash for his campaign. No doubt he'll be in touch with Clooney throughout the day, frustrated that he is stuck Stateside dealing with such menial and trivial matters...
