Stilinga is still shocked:
was it really Kermit on Michelle Obama's shoulder?
Has she seen right?
She cannot believe her eyes!
Stilinga cried when the Obamas arrived at the White House, after Bush.
We, here in Europe, were very touched by this big change in the US. We thanked the US people for this new President.
But now... what is this?
What are the Obamas doing: advertising?
Are they the chosen celebrities for the Kermit and the Muppets new movie advertising? And why?
Is the USA Presidential couple gone mad?
What about elegance, sobriety and institutional representation?
What about a pure cerimony made for the only glory or the US Democracy and the people?
Why are Michelle and Barack Obama on the stage with the products of the US movie industries and of the famous beverage?
No Prime Minister, no President would ever accept such a ceremony here in Europe or everywhere else.
Are these the only USA values that the Presidential pair needs to spread all over the world? Companies? US Economy? Nothing else? just marketing?
Is USA a democracy or something similar to Disneyworld?
Please tell me that you feel the same difficulty. Let us out of this disgusting nightmare.
