Leader of the Pack (Updated)

‘RATS

Fox News:

“As you probably know, some American politicians and American journalists refer to Washington, D.C. as the ‘capital of the free world’. But it seems to me that in this great city, which boasts 1,000 years of history and which serves as the capital of Belgium, the home of the European Union, and the headquarters for NATO, this city has its own legitimate claim to that title.”

Last week, Democrats thought it was Mexico City. This week, Brussels. Next week, Havana?

He’s right about this, though; it sure ain’t Ogabeville.

It’s Jerusalem.

Or even Tehran. And Shanghaied Caracas.

UPDATE: Jonah G.:

Joe Biden’s Brussels Spout

Then there’s the fact that the EU has set up shop in Brussels. Surely this was really Biden’s only point. He was telling the unaccountable Lilliputians of the Eurocracy that Gulliver sees them as equals now.

We’ve gone through the looking glass. Brussels has no love for freedom as we define it in the American sense, and it has little to no power to promote it in any sense. The pencil pushers in Brussels have almost as much contempt for democratic sovereignty and free enterprise as they do for common sense. Indeed, in the endless quest to ratify the EU’s constitution, the leaders of the effort insisted that the voters’ opinion didn’t matter.

Brussels doesn’t stand for freedom, it sits for its own self-aggrandizement, social engineering, the tyranny of legalisms, and diplomatic argy-bargy.

It’s not just offensive that Biden thinks Brussels might deserve the title over Washington, it’s terrifying that he might actually think Brussels is in the freedom business at all.
