President Obama, who would open the floodgates to hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees if he could, praised Germany’s Angela Merkel this week for being on the “right side of history” in regards to accepting immigrants. At a speech in Hannover on Monday, the president was effusive in his admiration.
“She is giving voice to the kinds of principles that bring people together rather than divide them,” Obama said, taking a not-so-subtle shot at conservative Europeans who are warning of an Islamic invasion.
Because Obama has faced strong opposition to an influx of Syrians into the U.S., the German press accused him of hypocrisy. Der Spiegel, an influential German paper, pointed out that Germany had accepted nearly twice as many refugees over the last year despite being four times as small.
“It is a pity that the chancellor could not turn to him when she needed help with the refugee crisis,” the paper wrote.
What’s more pitiful, actually, is that we don’t have a president willing to explain to the German chancellor the folly of her ways. Instead, we have a president who is simultaneously wrong and embarrassingly weak. He’s supposed to be the most powerful man in the world; instead he mopes around Europe, wishing he had the time and the skill to turn America into the socialist, open-bordered paradise he envisioned eight years ago.
