Der Spiegel Declares Obama “Decidedly Average”

There is a 12 page captioned  photo gallery entitledAn Average President on the website of German media giant, Der Spiegel.  It appears they are distinctly underwhelmed by the performance of our first African-American, Nobel Prize-winning President.   ~LTG

skippy’s health plan and water.

In Texas there is a town called New Braunfels , where there is a large German-speaking population.
One day, a local rancher driving down a country road noticed a man using his hand to drink water from the rancher’s stock pond.
The rancher rolled down the window and shouted:
“Sehr angenehm!
Trink das Wasser nicht. Die kuehe haben darein geschissen.”
Which means: “Glad to meet you! Don’t drink the water. The cows have pooped in it.”
The man shouted back: “I’m from New York and just down here campaigning for Obama‘s health care plan. I can’t understand you. Please speak in English.”

The rancher replied:
“Use both hands.”
