Does anybody know what moment it is?

In his sermon to the Germans, Barack Obama presents himself both as Barack the Baptist and the Obamessiah. Nevertheless, Americans naturally root for the underdog to prevail. For pride to take a fall. Don’t we instinctively seek to puncture the grandiose pretensions of a blowhard? It seems to me that this is the question that Obama’s speech elicits.

And one more question. I wonder if Americans will appreciate Obama’s deprecation of the United States on foreign soil for his own self-aggrandizing purposes. Surely one does not need to be a conservative Republican to recoil from this display.
