U.S. President Barack Obama continues making statements that raise questions about his foreign policy credentials.
While touring Europe, Obama, a former chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on European Affairs, had the misfortune of saying this:
It was also interesting to see that political interaction in Europe is not that different from the United States Senate.

Perhaps President Obama should appoint Arnold “The Governator” Schwarzenegger as his advisor on Sports and Austrian Affairs.
In the meantime, how about a “Sprechen Sie Austrian?” bumper sticker?
