Ich bin ein Frankfurter

President Obama wearing traditional German lederhosen

I am in Europe this week meeting with the G-20 leaders to discuss the global economy. My first stop was in Frankfurt, Germany. The folks in Frankfurt are suffering mightily from the deep recession here.

Last night, I held a town hall meeting (technically it was a "beer hall" meeting) where I took questions from the audience. Prior to the meeting, I thought long and hard about how to convey the proper tone.

I wanted to show the German people that I respect their culture; that I identify with their problems; that I am one with them. That is why I chose to wear the traditional lederhosen for this important event.

After 90 minutes of questions and answers, I ended the meeting to thunderous applause. Overcome by their adoration, I spoke in words reminiscent of another American President who was also adored by the European masses.

"Ich bin ein Frankfurter!!!"

Nope, this is not the official website of The White House. It's a parody of  No person, department, or agency of the U.S. Government approved, endorsed, or authorized this site. No animals were harmed while making this website (except maybe that one time when I was a little late feeding my dog his dinner).
