Do you know any Europeans? I do, a lot of 'em. The first thing that they comment on when they get here is the size of this country. It stuns them. Then they start to figure out why we don't (or didn't) have 8 languages and train service to every village. We are big, very big, and the only other big developed countries that have a size like ours are much more undeveloped than we are. Go to Russia or China or even Canada. Look around, learn something.
This is all about Obama wanting more money to buy votes.
