Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Don't you see the problem? oppose Rick Perry, he is one og this crazy texans like Bush. Fine. But that keeps you pretty helpless against Mitt Romney, very much not a Texan. The more thoughtful american progressives are against this kind of rhetoric, Texas this and the south that. Rightly. Right-wingers are all over the US and most of the leaders actually dwell in  New York or DC.

So your opinion - it is all right to blame " Germany" for everything, it will hit some of the right people -  is quite self-destructive. It lets right-wingers in the rest of the EU of the hook. That is enabling one of the oldest right-wing tactics, to blame everything on outsiders (bicoastal eleites, new York, Hollywood)
