Europeans are underwhelmed with the latest Obama Drama. With the sanctimonious attitude of a faux professor, Obama lectured Europeans on the importance of restoring fiscal responsibility to the European Union.
As humorous as it sounds, the Europeans found nothing to laugh about; in fact, they are insulted and indignant over the presumption of a profligate wastrel like Obama lecturing anyone concerning fiscal responsibility.
In California on Monday the 26th Obama warned the Europeans about their debt, stating that the European inaction was:
scaring the world. (That they)…have not fully healed from the crisis back in 2007 and never fully dealt with all the challenges that their banking system faced. It’s now being compounded by what’s happening in Greece. They’re going through a financial crisis that is scaring the world, and they’re trying to take responsible actions, but those actions haven’t been quite as quick as they need to be.

(Dublin, Ireland) Even before President Obama touched down in Ireland Monday, the country was abuzz with talk over his visit and the country’s ancestral connections to the president that go back many generations.
Now that he’s here, he is expressing a similar sentiment. “The friendship and the bond between the United States and Ireland could not be stronger,” he said after meeting with Enda Kenny, the country’s Taoiseach; the Head of the Irish Government.
“Obviously it is not just a matter of strategic interest, it’s not just a matter of foreign policy; for the United States, Ireland carries a blood link with us,” The president continued.
It is his own bloodline that the president will explore in a visit to the tiny town of Moneygall, where his great, great, great grandfather, Falmouth Kearney, once lived. Kearney was the son of a shoemaker who, in 1850 at the age of 19, immigrated to the United States and began a new arm of the family tree that eventually reached Stanley Ann Dunham, President Obama’s mother.
This tee shirt is just one of the many items being sold in honor of the president’s visit to Ireland this week.
While in Moneygall, the president is expected to visit one of the only two pubs in town, Ollie Hayes, where he may sip a Guinness or perhaps a Smithwick’s on tap. One Dublin cab driver told Fox, “He’ll have to go into both of them because if he doesn’t, he’ll put one out of business.” It turns out that the second pub is also owned by the Hayes family, so there should be no hard feelings there.
The larger Hayes is expected to be where the president will stop. The owners are quite proud of the town’s connection to the president, displaying a multitude of memorabilia dedicated to him, including a large bust.

BRUSSELS — European Union nations agreed to give $89.4 billion in bailout loans to Ireland on Sunday to help the debt-struck country weather its banking crisis, and sketched out new rules for future emergencies in an effort to restore faith in the euro currency.
The rescue deal, approved by finance ministers at an emergency meeting in Brussels, means two of the eurozone’s 16 nations have now come to depend on foreign help and underscores Europe’s struggle to contain its spreading debt crisis. The fear is that with Greece and now Ireland shored up, speculative traders will target the bloc’s other weak fiscal links, particularly Portugal.
In Dublin, Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen said his country will take euro10 billion immediately to boost the capital reserves of its state-backed banks, whose massive bad loans were picked up by the Irish government but have become too much to handle. Another euro25 billion will remain in reserve, earmarked for the banks.
The rest of the loans will be used to cover Ireland’s deficits for the coming four years. EU chiefs also gave Ireland an extra year, until 2015, to reduce its annual deficits to 3 percent of GDP, the eurozone limit. The deficit now stands at a modern European record of 32 percent because of the runaway costs of its bank-bailout program.
Cowen said the accord — reached after two weeks of tense negotiations in Brussels and Dublin to fathom the true depth of the country’s cash crisis — “provides Ireland with vital time and space to successfully and conclusively address the unprecedented problems that we’ve been dealing with since this global economic crisis began.”

AP – Nov. 18: Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen pauses as he speaks to delegates at the IBM Smartcamp Global Finals in Dublin, Ireland.
DUBLIN — Debt-crippled Ireland formally applied Sunday for a massive EU-IMF loan to stem the flight of capital from its banks, joining Greece in a step unthinkable only a few years ago when Ireland was a booming Celtic Tiger and the economic envy of Europe.
European Union finance ministers quickly agreed in principle to the bailout, saying it “is warranted to safeguard financial stability in the EU and euro area.” But all sides said further weeks of negotiations loomed to define the fund’s terms, conditions and precise size.
Ireland’s crisis, set off by its foundering banks, drove up borrowing costs not only for Ireland but for other weak links in the eurozone such as Spain and Portugal. Ireland’s agreement takes some pressure off those countries, but they still may end up needing bailouts of their own.
The European Central Bank — which oversees monetary policy for the 16-nation eurozone and first raised alarm bells about a renewed cash crisis in Dublin banks. Sweden and Britain, not members of the euro currency, said they also were willing to provide bilateral loans to Ireland.
