Yeh some of his UN speech sounded good, the parts of his speech when he tried to emulate George W Bush and George H W Bush.
When he clumsily inserted Ferguson to show the world we aren’t perfect in America. Ugh, double Ugh. I thought, “Can’t we impeach that bastard!?” Isn’t he supposed to know a little bit about the law? This shooting is still under investigation, and he has no business interfering in a legal matter under investigation? Hasn’t he ever heard of “presumed innocence?” How dare he assume the guilt of the policeman, without any consideration that this was a tragic but legal shooting.
Does anyone seriously believe the world delegates on the verge of going to war against global terror extremists were sitting there thinking, “But what about Ferguson?” That’s idiocy. The only person thinking about Ferguson was President Obama and the real question is why?
This speech proves once again that Obama is not a serious man. His badly trained mind is a warehouse of the sort of leftist and progressive received wisdom and dull clichés that pollute our universities, media, and popular culture. He represents the moral idiocy and fashionable self-loathing that signals to our enemies and rivals that the United States can be had.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a president who loved the United States, was proud of the United States? There’s never been a perfect nation but no other leader consistently apologizes for general and specific deficiencies. Largely unreported at the time but very telling is that after the devastating earthquake in Haiti, the US Marines went to render aid. President Obama ordered that the Marines take down their display of the US flag for fear the Haitians would fear we were invading them. Of all the nations there, the US was the only country not flying the flag. Why shouldn’t France be ashamed to fly their flag? Haiti was once their colony, it was impoverished while a colony and after. Do you think the Haitians worried about invasion? My guess is they would love to be a part of the US. BTW, of all the nations, the Haitians clearly favored aid rendered by the US Marines. The US military is known for the world over for competent humanitarian relief efforts. The UN has an abysmal record of corruption, including sex trade and abuse, during much of its peacekeeping missions but I don’t hear Obama apologize for them. http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/obama-brings-ferguson-un_806086.html
Obama, much like the European and Scandinavian nations, has a history of reaching out to “moderate” Muslims but not knowing who’s moderate and who isn’t . It never matters because coddling the Muslims never works. Why aren’t the “moderate” Muslims working hard to reassure the world they don’t agree with the extremists? Multiculturism and appeasement is working out horribly for Europe and Scandinavia, why can’t we learn from their mistakes? Isn’t President Obama’s top priority to protect America, not build the self-esteem of Muslims and/or Arabs? http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2014/09/worst-un-speech-ever-obama-praises-muslim-cleric-who-called-for-slaughter-of-us-soldiers/
The liberal media can make fun of me all they want. This act was still disrespectful. The comparison to Bush’s lame salute is pathetic. Bush was carrying his dog, and awkwardly trying to still show respect by saluting, albeit an awkward salute. Obama couldn’t bother putting his Styrofoam cup in the other hand. Was he just too lazy? Doesn’t care? Too stupid? I don’t think he cares. Why is this such a big deal to conservatives? Because Obama has a record of disrespect and lack of appreciation of the military, both before and after he became president. George W Bush might have been clumsy but there’s no doubt he respected the military, so did his WWII hero pilot dad. Trust is earned and Obama has most definitely not earned the trust to give him a pass. http://hotair.com/archives/2014/09/24/liberal-press-loves-latte-sallute/
