Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I've been listening to the "Barry Talk" in Berlin. I cannot watch him. This is the first time since the 2004 Democratic convention that I've listened to him speak. I have read his SOTU addresses and a few of his speeches during his POTUS tenure. These I assume now as I did then were written by others.

I have not reached the end of "Barry Talk" yet. The content of this extemporaneous presentation of his political expertise is as inane as anything produced by his predecessors and his successor.

I will say by the way. You Europeans, you guys like a lot of rules and a lot of meetings. And you've got a lot of governments. It's hard to keep up sometimes. Okay. You've got the commission. You've got the parliament and you've got this, and you've got that. When I used to come over for meetings, I'd be like, Didn't I just meet with them? No, that's a different thing. This is this. And, okay. Everyone's talking for a long time. So I understand that frustration.

And that's not all. I've had to stop several times to scream in order to reach 01:17:20.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
