This Is What Our President Thinks of Us

For all those who said that Obama's administration would be a renaissance for the US, consider the following word:

"Addressing a crowd of some 2,000 mainly students from France and Germany, Mr Obama said: In America, there is a failure to appreciate Europe's leading role in the world..."-

Yep, that's it. We didn't have anything to do with winning WWII. We didn't liberate France or save the UK from the devastation of the German bombardment. We were just guys who happened to be hanging around. Europe runs the world. All of industry and innovation comes from Europe which is why so many folks seek to emigrate to Europe, right?

Wrong. If that's the case then why do we see so many people seeking political and economic asylum in the freedom of the American lifestyle? Why are so many Mexican, Guatamalans, Koreans, Chinese and Vietnamese moving here rather than Europe? Yet Obama maintains that Europe is the engine that makes this little planet tick. Let's consider for a few minutes the numerous organizations largely funded by US dollars. How about the UN? We pay the majority of the costs for that largely anti-American organization. How about UNESCO? We fund that. What about Red Cross? That's funded heavily by the American government. What about the countless programs that domestically support the indigent and ill even when they aren't residents here? And frankly, look back to international disasters and who do they call? France? Germany? No, they call US. They call the United States because we have the will and the way to make things happen. But our "Dear Leader" would have the world believe that we are lank also-rans incapable of walking down the street without a keeper. Is this what you expect of your elected leader? Or do you expect him to hold his head up as the leader of a sovereign nation that owes nothing to such pumped up puppets as the Saudi Royal Family? To bow before men who are slaveholders and misogynists is to say that you approve. So what's next? Will Team Obama insist on dipping the US flag at next year's Winter Olympics? Will we tie our economy into the Euro? Anything is possible. And remember, those who chose not to ask the hard questions voted for this guy. They have no room to complain as he dismantled our economy and makes us into a pallid doppelganger of our past glory.

Wouldn't it be great if we just started acting like all the other countries in the world and withdrew all our aid to all other countries. Withdraw financial support from the UN and other such organizations. Quit sending aid to every country that has need.

I know that won't happen - but I wonder if we did that how quickly people would come asking us to forgive them for their constant slandering us and please help them again.

They hate us because they are dependent on us. Its like the employees who always gripe about the boss. You can't be a leader and have everyone like you. That's just a fact.

Obama doesn't have a clue about how that dynamic works. But then, he's never been in a real-life leadership position and doesn't have any experience with what I call playground politics. He's just not a leader.

The whole thing makes me so sad.
