‘I’m sorry for America’ tour

THE FOUNDATION

"No country upon earth ever had it more in its power to attain these blessings than United America. Wondrously strange, then, and much to be regretted indeed would it be, were we to neglect the means and to depart from the road which Providence has pointed us to so plainly." –George Washington

Obama: Smug at the UN

FOR THE RECORD

"Barack Obama took center stage at the United Nations on Wednesday and continued his ‘I’m sorry for America’ tour. Despite leading a nation that defends others, pays for others, promotes freedom for others, and shelters others, Obama once again talked about the past in order to make himself more accommodating and caring. Word to Obama and other left-wing ‘speak softly and carry a wet spaghetti noodle’ types…. his message was exactly what other nations want to hear. But it’s not because they want a kindler, gentler America to get along with. It’s because they want an America that will continue to pay the bills, continue to bail them out of emergencies, and let them run amok with their policies. Obama gave them everything they were looking for. … Obama echoed previous world speeches by highlighting what he thinks is wrong with America: ‘I took office at a time when many around the world had come to view America with skepticism and distrust. Part of this was due to misperceptions and misinformation about my country. Part of this was due to opposition to specific policies, and a belief that on certain critical issues, America has acted unilaterally, without regard for the interests of others. And this has fed an almost reflexive anti-Americanism, which too often has served as an excuse for collective inaction.’ At this time, do you think that he addressed the ‘misperceptions and misinformation’ about America? Did he describe how America really is? No. Did he explain that America has not acted unilaterally? Of course not. … When talking about Iraq, Obama did not mention how the Iraqis are now free from an oppressive dictator and holding democratic elections. Instead, he simply said, ‘In Iraq, we are responsibly ending a war.’ When talking about Afghanistan, he never mentioned the Taliban. Obama did, however, talk tough against one nation: Israel. … I would be remiss not to mention that Obama did receive some praise for his speech. Cuban dictator Fidel Castro praised Obama for his efforts on ‘climate change.’ The news story notes that ‘the former Cuban leader on Wednesday called the American president’s speech at the United Nations "brave" and said no other American head of state would have had the courage to make similar remarks.’" –columnist Bobby Eberle
