CZECH PRAGUE NEWSPAPER ARTICLE ----
an article in the Prague newspaper, Prager Zeitungon.
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of
entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to
limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the
necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing
to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far
more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America .
Blaming the prince of fools should not blind anyone to the vast
confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive
a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to
survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their President.”
Origins: This item circulated in November 2012 supposedly reproduces an article that appeared in "the Prague newspaper, Prager Zeitungon." This appears to be a misspelled reference to Prager Zeitung ("Prague Newspaper"), a German language weekly newspaper from the Czech Republic which is also circulated in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
However, the version of this item circulated online provides no other contextual information (such as a publication date or headline) to help track down if and when it was actually published in Prager Zeitung. A search of that newspaper's web site currently pulls up only one article which mentions Barack Obama, and that mention is an incidental reference about the level of security provided to a U.S. president.
Even if the Prager Zeitung or some similar newspaper did reproduce this item it likely did not originate there, as this bit of text was circulating anonymously as far back as 2009 and did not pick up an attribution crediting it to the Prager Zeitung until much later.
