    The Prager Zeitung's Obama article email

    As many have undoubtedly received the following email, as I did recently, I thought I would do some fact checking. I wasn't able to determine its authenticity via Snopes, but did manage to find the source online and use a translation engine to determine the following:

    While I may agree with it's content, the email is certainly viral as it misrepresents the facts. The email incorrectly attributes the following as part of a 28 April 2010 newspaper article appearing in the Czech Republic Newspaper, The Prager Zeitung; when in fact, it was a reader's commentary for a March 2010 newspaper article appearing in said media.

    Subject Line: Multitude of Fools

    The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

    The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool.

    It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.
    One can follow the link provided for another source that largely supports my stated findings.

    The good news, at least, is that not everyone in Europe is a mindless fool. Let's hope that attribute is contagious in America in 2012.

    There is most certainly a thread of truth to it. We as a country have lost our way and need to return to our roots.

    Regardless of the source, it was well spoken. This sort of electorate comes from years of water fluorination, mind numbing TV, and obsession with what America's Idols are doing. Time for some real change is coming; we can make a difference if enough of us wake up.

    Have searched the Prager Zeitung website for the article in question. Searched all articles that mentioned Obama, articles went back thru 2009. The article is not online. [Yes, I read German.] Although I agree with the sentiments expressed in the email, we do not need half-truths or made up stuff to make the case that our Pres is a socialist and a revolutionary trying to usurp our Constitution. 2 Chronicles 7:14
