Somehow, Less Than Presidential


In recent memory, it has been almost tradition for the president to go abroad when things are going badly domestically.

This started, at least in recent memory, with Nixon, when he had his problems with Watergate, Vietnam, etc: He went to China. Many presidents since then have done the same thing when things get sour at home.

Obama is no different. With his numbers tanking and having been in decline over the last 10 months, he does this Asia tour to make himself seem more presidential. More subterfuge from the magician.

He preaches governmental reform with freedom of speech in China, yet he wants to empower the government here to take liberties away. He bows like a coolie to the Emperor of Japan, several times, yet he expects us to bow to him. He assigns the trial of KSM to Manhattan, where the terrorist may enjoy legal protections that citizens have, in my opinion, to one, appear fair to our detractors and enemies, and two, to showcase the Bush administration in a negative light. I bet he hopes they spill the beans about gitmo, so as to get the public against something he is against and get the attention off himself.

And that is the crux of all of it: To get the negative attention off himself. Like a con man who is discovered as such, he will try to spin to gain confidence of his mark again and the mark is us. Are you buying into it?

Thank you for reading this blog.

Obama is a freaking disgrace. And, by him and his comrade Eric Holder deciding to hold the terrorist trial in NYC, he has proven that he REALLY hates America. He just cares about his own image and ego. Its utterly sickening....

@Tim: He sold us more than a bridge.

@Teresa:It's worse than that. It's not that he just hates America. he hates how we got here, what makes us great, and the fact we are number one. He hates capitalism, and he hates libertarian and objectivist principles. He hates everything America stands for and in order to make us socialist, he must tear it all down. It's straight out of Marx.

The problem with Obama going overseas is he looks awfully leisurely rather than presidential. He does a lot of playing whereever he goes. What are his golf plans in China? Surely its not too late in the season over there for 18 holes.

China is similar in size to the US. I am sure he'll find somewhere to play.
