DUBLIN — He downed a pint of Guinness with a distant cousin and checked out centuries-old parish records tracing his family to Ireland. From the tiny village of Moneygall to a huge, cheering crowd in Dublin, President Barack Obama opened his four-nation trip through Europe on Monday with an unlikely homecoming far removed from the grinding politics of Washington and the world.
“My name is Barack Obama, of the Moneygall Obamas, and I’ve come home to find the apostrophe we lost somewhere along the way,” a clearly tickled Obama — make that O’Bama — told the overflow throng at Dublin’s College Green with his wife, Michelle, right by him. “We feel very much at home.”
Just another campaign stop along his way. It is beyond me how anyone with half a brain can buy anything the man says or does as something other than for the sole purpose of his re-election effort. He’s not nearly as clever as he thinks he is!
Seems like our neighborly Brits know a thing or two more about our President than many Americans. Or maybe it’s that they aren’t as easily fooled? Seems appropo to me! Good thing his campaign stop in Ireland went well! “Feels like coming home“, yeah! Now he can count on all the Irish-American vote, huh?
“The term is reportedly a Punjabi word meaning someone who is too clever for his own good, according to the newspaper.” Looks like it fits!
