The Germans are starting to look really bad. America used to be able to count on Germany for consistent pro-American sentiment, but the left-wing Chancellor is trying to win the upcoming election by criticizing America's policy on Iraq. Now Germany's justice minister has said, "Bush wants to divert attention from his domestic problems. It's a classic tactic. It's one that Hitler used." Wow, a German politician comparing an American president to Hitler. I think Germany has hit a new low. You can read the short article here.

I still think the Chancellor's conservative challenger, Edmund Stoiber, has a good chance of winning the election. Stoiber says that "one of his first jobs if he wins Sunday's German election will be to repair harm done to Germany's name abroad by Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder's 'isolationism' on Iraq."
