I will try google.translate with some editing of my own to make it a litte more readable:
Club of liars, demagogues, ignorant
Team of the U.S. Republican candidates: from scandal to scandal
A reality show full of awkward moments do the U.S. Republicans in their primaries forward with ignorance, lies and scandals, notes SPIEGEL ONLINE
correspondent Marc Pitzke. The party ruined the reputation of the country - and even has to fear the comeback of the ultimate scandal noodle.
Africa is a country. In Libya, the Taliban rule. Muslims are terrorists, immigrants are usually criminal, Occupy protesters always dirty. And women
who feel sexually harassed, should please not put up such a fuss.
Welcome to the wonderful world of the U.S. Republicans . Or rather: the Distortion World in her presidential campaign. For months they hoof it around
the country with their traveling circus, from debate to debate, from scandal to scandal, to be recommended for the most powerful office on earth - and
rootlessness is not taboo to them.
Sure, on the road to the White House always all kinds of things go wrong. Goof-ups, blunder, embarrassments: No campaign would do without them. And
this time it would all certainly very funny - if ones laughing were not stuck in the throat.
Because these eight would-be candidates are happily ruining not only her own reputation and that of her party, the party once worthy of Abraham
Lincoln . They ruin the reputation of the United States.
They lie, feign bluster and talk so silly stuff. And they prove a political, economic, geographical and historical ignorance that George W. Bush
appear as a scholar and make even friends of the party cringe. "When has the GOP lost touch with reality?" Said flabbergasted Ex-Bush speechwriter
David Frum in the "New York Magazine." Ronald Reagan's chief of staff Kenneth Duberstein speaks of a reality show, columnist Peggy Noonan ("Wall
Street Journal"), even from a freak show.
The latter nails it probably the best.
Platitudes instead of program: In serious times that require brains, wit, these figures only waffle, insulting the intelligence of all Americans. But
like all freak shows they would also be unthinkable without their stage (the by sheer political correctness almost obsessively neutral U.S. media)
(?????really??ManFromEurope) and their receptive audience (the apparently overnight stupefied party basis). Despite the below grade levels of this
primary campaign press and TV stations one clown after another cheer for the new runner up in pretty reliable news cycles of 45 days.
Cain is a caricature of content
For example, Herman Cain . He is stitting out allegations by arguing that the vast majority of ladies whom he had met in his life had not complained.
In the recent affair was revealed on Monday a woman who says to have been for 13 years his mistress. Cain dismisses this nonchalant - even though his
attorney Lin Wood denies anything but clear. A consultant for Cain announced now at least him to reconsider his campaign - which may mean that he
drops it soon.
This wouldn't be a loss. Cain is a caricature of content.
As head of the pizza chain "Godfather's" he destroyed jobs earlier, he now shows himself as a job magician. He mastered neither the basics of the
economy nor shows rudimentary knowledge of politics and cartography. Libya confuses him, China he thinks it not a nuclear power, other questions he
answered categorically with the exclamation, "9-9-9", the symbol of his tax cut plan, which would increase the taxes for 84 percent of Americans.
(oops, have to go, try to understand the rest..)
Disturbed all the temporary rise of Cain? Not at all: Since 1 October, he donated his fans more than nine million dollars.
Newt Gingrich, the disgraced political dinosaurs
Or Newt Gingrich, the latest darling du jour . Because of the disgraced political dinosaur can say more complicated sentences than the other, the U.S.
media glorify him reflexively to the "man of ideas" ("Washington Post"), although these ideas are often miserable. If not offensive - such as the
firing, school caretaker and to do their jobs for poor children.
For the high-handed Berufsdemagoge is neither punished deserve to have and now selling it as a Washington outsider as the chutzpah, as a lobbyist
millions of dollars. Or for play, moral authority, even though he is divorced twice - the first woman, ill with cancer, he surprised everyone with the
divorce at the bedside, the second one he cheated with a 23 years younger employee, while serving as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives the
impeachment Bill Clinton's advance drove in the Lewinsky affair. Chutzpah already there.
The Americans have short memories. Forget that Gingrich was driven in disgrace from Congress reprimanded the first speaker in U.S. history because of
ethics violations. Or that he always sharp scars along the border of racism when he speaks of Barack Obama. Or that he had a 500,000-dollar credit
line at Tiffany's, during his campaign in the Meanies sank - and he railed against the national debt.
The media here to thank him but by his courtly umtänzeln daily. And the Republican voters, by making him sit in the polls just to the front. Mr.
hypocrisy as a right hope.
"People are hungry for ideas," said Gingrich's just former Clinton nemesis whose "success" in an interview with the conservative magazine
"Newsmax". "He is rewarded for thinking." Not only the Republicans have lost their minds.
"Um, sorry, oops"
Rick Perry - his unspeakable are legend
And the other candidates? Rick Perry's legend is unspeakable. His "Ooops" moment of South Carolina , his often drunk slurred voice, his TV ads,
Obama put the words into the mouth, has not said (Americans are "lazy"), his claim as governor of Texas have created a million jobs, although there
were in fact only 100,000: Elsewhere, Perry would be discredited as a serious candidate for a long time. Not in the USA.
Michele Bachmann . they have while they have relegated to the courts, yet they must continue to pretend that she was a serious candidate Ron Paul's
fan base is all the more committed, more confused he talks . Jon Huntsman - the only one who from time to time useful suggestions making - has been
played at the base, since it is relatively favorably commented on the Occupy demos.
If Mitt Romney , the flip-Flopper eternal and at the end almost guaranteed candidate, although nobody likes him right in the party. Stock still, he
says his phrases by heart, after all, he carries it since 2008, when he failed, to make John McCain's nomination alienated.
Simply ignore everything?
Romney as investors raked in millions and kills jobs, and now he plays the savior of the economy - with a "business plan", the business magazine
"Forbes" as dubbed dangerous and asks whether it would certainly be serious. Not to mention Romney's TV spots, which also abound in falsehoods that
So a nice club. A club of liars, debtors, unjust, adulterers, exaggeration, Pharisees and ignorant. No wonder that David Remnick, the editor of "New
Yorkers", is already the "decline of America" looks.
.. (it goes on like that)
