Krauthammer: Europe Doesn’t "Give A Damn" What U.S. Says Under Obama
Charles Krauthammer offers his analysis of President Obama's G20 speech: The second thing I picked up is the subtlety of the gibberish he offered on Europe -- which was the only thing he could do because the fact that he didn't have anything to say or to offer is the perfect reflection of the decline of the American influence everywhere in the last three and a half years. I think it's a bigger decline in U.S. influence in all areas of the world -- in the Middle East, in Syria, in Europe, economically and every other way than any other three and a half years since the end of the second World War.
This is a president who speaks for the United States so weakly that nobody cares what he says. The Europeans care what Angela Merkel says about Greece and Spain and Italy. They don't give a damn what the United States says because it is irrelevant.
