We should be ashamed of ourselves.Where do we get off thinking that freedom and democracy are superior to dictatorships and terrorism….?Oh,the arrogance of America.Who do we think we are?
Up until Barack Obama and his new Secretary of State Hillary told me I didn’t realize just how boorish Americans could be.I feel like the party guest who suddenly realizes that nobody really wants him there.Thank God that Barack is on top of it and making my apologies for me.Thanks Barry…I owe ya’ one.
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama gave his first formal television interview as president to an Arabic cable TV network, telling Al-Arabiya that when it comes to Middle East matters “all too often the United States starts by dictating.”
I’m sure that he has a lot of examples of that to point to.Like the time we told Iran to stop hanging gay people or maybe the time we told Syria to stop building a nuclear facility.Hell…we don’t even bother doing that with Iran and they remind us almost every day.Then there was the time we got all up in the face of Hamas when they starting lobbing what would be thousands of rockets at Israel.How about the time we publicly condemned the Taliban for stoning little girls who’s only crime was trying to learn to read.
If some of you are having a hard time remembering all that it is probably because it never happened.We don’t even complain when some Islamic terrorist cuts of the head of a soldier and posts it on the internet.Oh sure…we get mighty fired up over the obvious crime against humanity of putting a pair of panties on the head of a captured terror suspect but that’s because that was really over the top.Don’t even get me started on the Congo or Somalia.
It’s a new day I guess.America is back.We can all breathe a sigh of relief now.Even Hillary says so.
“There is a great exhalation of breath going on in the world as people express their appreciation for the new direction that’s being set and the team that is put together by the president,” Clinton said.
“We have a lot of damage to repair.”
Yeah…like all the damage we did freeing 50 million people from slavery and oppression.Like all the damage we do trying to keep Iran in check or keeping China from annexing Taiwan.Maybe she was referring to how we got Libya to abandon it’s nuclear aspiration and move away from being a state sponsor of terror.Was she referring to the billions and billions of dollars we send to Africa to combat AIDS?
Yup…I guess little Miss Hill yearns for the days of yesteryear when her husband Bill ran the show and the United States was being attacked all over the world.But at least they liked us.
Now that I’m on the subject.Why did President Obama send George Mitchell to the Middle East and not his spanking new Secretary of State Hillary Clinton…?You would think that with all her experience dodging sniper fire she would jump at the chance.She could take Bill along and he could introduce her around to all his buddies in Dubai.
Ahh…she must be busy just listening.
