What exactly was he talking about

There were too many gems from Pres. Obama's speech in Strasbourg the other day to do a full and honest vetting of just how horrible of a representative this guy is for the America that I love. But I'll focus in on just one line for now:

Obama said "In America, there is a failure to appreciate Europe's leading role in the world."

My question is: in what role does Europe lead THE WORLD?

There may be--MAY BE--some areas where a country here and a country there have the best program in the world. There are dozens of countries in Europe, after all--hopefully one of them gets something right.

But how have they exported that program to THE WORLD?

Economically? Politically? How?

And has been pointed out in other forums, this was not a simple misspeak. These were prepared comments, and he purposefully chose to describe Europe's role as the preeminent role in the world. In other words, America's role is NOT as the leader of the free world--at least in Obama's world.

Not an "important" role--which would be undeniably true.

A "leading" role. Coming from the man who represents what many others--especially in this country--think is the country that "leads" the world in just about every worthwhile endeavor.

I would like some insight as to what the President thinks regarding this, please.

Not "clarification of what he said"--it's pretty obvious what he said. And again, he was reading a prepared text of his trusty teleprompter.

In what ways does Europe--all of Europe, mind you, just like his comments--"lead" the world?

Will anybody ask that of him or of his team?

Enquiring minds want to know.
