“There is nothing more noble than the public service.” says president Obama during his stay in Strasbourg.

You can clearly see he does not know the public and more than this  the public is taken by surprise by his way of behaving and talking.  I am sorry Obama hesitated to name more public services the youth can consider. I think he was not sure about what would qualify as public service and what not in Europe so he stayed in the safe zone. Also,  it is not his job to tell European youth this… However, I would have loved to hear him say something like volunteer or work in public libraries 🙂  That would have required at least a couple of minutes of thinking for our politicians to try to understand what these words mean.  Anyway president Obama is the first politician (that I have found)  so far that has this kind of motivating discourses for youth in Europe.

Very interesting…
