It appears that at least one German didn’t continue swooning over the Dork Knight after his first visit to Germany, a visit that he made when he should have been campaigning (lying) at home.. In an article entitled “Obama’s Nice Guy Act Gets Him Nowhere on the World Stage” (spiegel dot de), Gabor Steingart wonders out loud about our President. His points are valid but they need a bit of focus.. Allow me to assist..
“When he entered office, US President Barack Obama promised to inject US foreign policy with a tone of respect and diplomacy..it’s not working..” “Promises” substantially lighter than helium is the Obama specialty. Anyone familiar with his shampaign to the degree that the Americans were subject to isn’t surprised by this revelation. “Respect and diplomacy” Obama style consists of an endless series of “courtesies and groveling”. “Respect and diplomacy..it’s not working..” Mr. Steingart, that is the Obama nomenclature. He has had the same effect upon the American public. Directly because of him, several million of them aren’t “working” either..
David Axelrod “senior advisor” to Obama, talked to the media in Seoul instead of America’s intrepid leader. This Asian endeavor, as with every other endeavor both foreign and domestic by these political poltroons, is by all accounts the atypical miserable Obama failure. The designated Obama excuse maker said, “the public’s expectations had been too high..” “High expectations” have been the moronic mantra of this candidate since Day One. His Bolshevik bleating of “hope and change” based upon the experience of his 143 days in the Senate, allowed the cow eyed liberal base to swallow his Eucharist of Folly hook, line and stinker.. Suddenly “high expectations” are a bad thing, especially when he has to actually produce something other than his usual kaleidoscopic cornucopia of Demokratic dementia..
“The mood in Obama’s foreign policy team is tense following an extended Asia trip that produced no palpable results..” Tadaaah! Welcome to the world of liberal politics. “No palpable results” is the goal that they strive for, it is their standard operating procedure. “No palpable results” is usually followed by yet another demand for yet another infusion of tax dollars because money heaved about is the patented liberal panacea for problems of their own making.. By the way, on the domestic front “no palpable results” would be quite an improvement over the Obama “Target America First” policies that he has already inflicted..
“The Asians smiled but made no concessions (to the) ‘first Pacific president’, as he called himself.” We went from a failed flabby philanderer who called himself “the first black president” to the first black president calling himself “the first Pacific president..” The imaginary “first black president” was also known as “the first fondler” and the “progressive pervert” here in America. By the way, when he wasn’t using women as humidors he was getting smacked around by Obama’s Secretary of Statists..
“Obama said that he wanted to listen to the world, but Obama’s currency isn’t as strong as he had believed..” He had better “listen to the world” because the world now owns more of America than Americans do thanks to his reckless policies of exorbitant taxation, endless handouts to the non-productive and an unprecedented totalitarian rule. “Obama’s currency isn’t as strong..” No kidding. Because of Obama AMERICA’S “currency isn’t as strong” either, just ask the Chinese..
The Japanese “pulled out” of an agreement relative to the refueling of American ships in the Afghan War, Obama got zilch (other than a stern talking to about his devaluing of China’s ownership of America) from Beijing and China giggled in his face relative to his squawking about “greenhouse gas emissions”.. Since the liberals have taken the “or else” out of any or all of the “diplomatic discussions”, Obama’s hot air strikes from the USS Retaliation will never be taken seriously anywhere by anyone..
China decided to take the humiliation one step further. The only people who are less concerned about “human rights” than the Chinese are the liberals, just look at how they treat the poor here in America. Never the less, Obama said before going to China that “freedom of expression is a universal right”. While in China, he was made a fool of by going to a “joint press conference” (just the thought of a “joint press conference” is every liberal burnouts dream..) with Chinese President Hu Jintao “at which questions were forbidden..” A real man would have reiterated the “universal right” business and he would have crowed about China’s horrible human rights record but Obama was too busy making sure that his slip wouldn’t show while he practiced more inappropriate bowing..
Of all people even Bill Clinton back in 1998 while in China, brought up the Tiananmen Square massacre in front of the murderers. At the end of this “exchange”, Chinese president Jiang Zemin impishly said, “I believe this is democracy.” Obama is so quick to be subservient and obsequious to anyone in foreign government, he cuts them off and prostrates himself before them before they have a chance to be servile to him.. China for good measure, decided to play a little “thump the chump” with Obama, saying “America should clean up its government finances and the weak dollar is unacceptable..” Bonus question: What would have Obama done at Reykjavik with Gorbachev?
Just for fun while he was floundering like a mackerel out of water in Asia, Obama decided to address the Iranian nuclear situation with his usual goofy grimaces and snorts of derision.. “Obama mentioned ‘consequences’ and he also said, ‘time is running out’”.. Mr. Steingart points out that that “was the same phrase Bush used against former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein shortly before he sent in the bombers..” What do you think that the chances are that Obama has the bombers all gassed up ready to head for Tehran? Obama, the “Palastinian progressive” has also been justifiably slapped down recently by Israel relative to his childish demands over the Israeli settlements in Gaza. Obama on the world stage is about as frightening a visage as having Ru Paul as your opponent in a cage match..
“Obama advisers fear a comparison with former Democratic president Jimmy (Dhimmi) Carter..” Their fear is justified. Iran and North Korea are operating unencumbered, China says, “Jump” and Obama immediately responds with “How high?” The world’s aggressors are salivating over the election of the “Great Enabler”..
“Obama’s new foreign policy has been unsuccessful elsewhere..” Mr. Steingart, Obama’s domestic policy is actually worse than his foreign policy embarrassments.. For the sake of brevity, let the record show that Obama is “unsuccessful EVERYWHERE”..
