"fellow citizen of the world." Said President Obama in Berlin, Germany, as he addressed a very large crowd of Europeans, 90% couldn't speak English, posing as the world leader he hopped he'd become after the election. The press had a field day, leg shivers and all, purporting that he will bring back the respect we've lost around the world under the Bush administration. Really? So far, the "teleprompter & chief" has done one pitiful job of showing our power and strength to the rest of the world. Here are just a few examples of how our new president has performed on the world stage in his short, but I'd say already too long , career:
Guantanamo Detainees May Be Released in U.S.
"Attorney General Eric Holder said some detainees being held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, may end up being released in the U.S. as the Obama administration works with foreign allies to resettle some of the prisoners."
I say let them stay at Mr. Holders home until they find their way.....what an idiot!
Obama 'ready to drop shield plans for Russian help on Iran'
Eastern Europe, the new democracies, counting on the U.S. to show them how capitalism is done, well.....their screwed.
Reports: Russia confirms Iran missile contract
Putin is trying to catch the drool falling down his chin as he sees his new Russia rattle its sabers and flex its oil mussels, knowing that Pres. Obama has neither the will or even the ability to take him on in the foreign policy arena. He ran the K.G.B. for god's sakes, and Obama ran what, not even a pop-cycle stand.
Obama Wants to Disarm U.S. Pilots
This is just stupid, head-in-the-sand, pre-9/11 thinking. I say let everyone on the plane have a gun, and see if any idiot helling "Allah Akbar" gets two steps towards the cockpit.
Producing Panic in America's Allies
"Notably, President Obama did not respond to greeting messages from America's Mideast allies until weeks after he'd entered the White House. The Iraqi leadership had to wait three weeks. Afghan President Hamid Karzai waited 40 days. Leaders of traditional allies such as Morocco, Egypt, Turkey, Jordan and Saudi Arabia didn't wait as long - but got only protocol calls devoid of political content.
Obama's emissaries to the region have made it clear that the new administration is keener on cultivating its foes than courting its friends. "

Rebuilding Hamas' killing machine
"Palestinian police officers salute during a graduation ceremony in the West Bank town of Jenin May 9, 2006. Heil to Pali Victory"
$900Million. That's what the Obama administration is going to provide Hamas, the government of Gaza, to use to "rebuild" their area after they brought on a thumping by Israeli forces. This is what goes for foreign policy under Obama and Clinton. By the way, in the founding documents of Hamas is the expressed goal of destroying the state of Israel, killing all Jews and Islamic rule over all the earth. Gee, where can I send my check.....schmucks!
This administration truly has no idea what they are doing, in foreign relations, the economy, world trade, you name it. So looking at how things are starting out in regards to regaining the respect lost under Bush, hows that going for ya Mr. Obama, hows that going.
