Czech President Vaclav Klaus Quote on the Election of President Obama-Unproven!

Summary of the eRumor:  
This is an alleged quotation from former Czech Republic President Vaclav Klaus about President Obama's election. Some say it appeared in a Czech news paper editorial.
 

The Truth:  
This quote goes back as far as 2010 on the various boards on the World Wide Web but TruthOrFiction.com has not been able to determine its origin or authenticity.   It is uncertain if President Václav Klaus said this.   It may have appeared in an editorial or reader comment in the Czech newspaper.

One board, the Freepublic.com, attributed the quotation to Prager Zeitung, a news paper in the Czech Republic.  

Political commentator Bernard Goldberg and Fox News contributor even shared the quote about 10 days after the reelection of Barack Obama.   On November 16, 2012 Goldberg wrote this on his website:

This Pretty Much Sums It Up …

I received this from a friend … and wanted to share with all of you. Please tell me what you think.

Perfect Quote

“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 the 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."

A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:


“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 the 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.”
