Obama backs Spain through testing times

US PRESIDENT Barack Obama has pledged his country’s support to Spain as it battles to get its economy back on track.

Obama discussed the Eurozone crisis with Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy by telephone and acknowledged that Spain faced ‘difficult challenges’ in its fight against the debt crisis.

It comes as Rajoy moved a step closer to asking for a full bailout from the EU on Friday, but warned that he needed to know what conditions would be attached before agreeing to any deal.

Meanwhile, Spain’s King Juan Carlos is to meet with union leaders to discuss the economic crisis amid claims that the government’s austerity measures are making the situation worse.

  1. So, tell me, what’s the difference between
    one hundred and twelve million people voting
    once for a president, and fifty five million
    people voting once with twenty eight and a
    half million people voting twice for a president,
    or any combination thereof? It’s the difference
    between a dictatorship and a democracy.

    Congratulations Mr. President, you just became
    the Bashir Assad of the U.S., dictator of the
    Syrian States of America.

    After That election? Nobody can claim that the US.
    is a democracy, anymore.

  2. Should anyone who thinks that Obama is a Marxist be allowed to vote – absolutely not! In fact they should be forceably fed Largactyl.

    I have seen American idiots spouting off that Hitler’s Germany/Austria was a very good example of how bad a Socialist State could be – you morons, Hitler and his clever cronies wanted to draw in all the disaffected Socialists and Communists – that is why they called their blatantly Fascist movement – the National Socialist Party – got it now.

    Of course the USA/UK (and most other countries) are not democracies, these countries are ruled by a very small elite for their own enrichment. In the US blue collar workers actively campaign for tax cuts for the super rich – you can’t get more brainwashed than that.

    The Spanish have been given hundreds of billions over the years and mostly squandered it on ego trips now squeeky voice/Rajoy wants more with no questions asked and what is so sad is that the professional parasites/politicians will give him OUR money to save their own ego trip – the Euro.

HAVE YOUR SAY...
