Here are some excerpts from president Obama’s September 23 address to the United Nations, with comments:
Obama said: I come before you humbled by the responsibility that the American people have placed upon me, mindful of the enormous challenges of our moment in history, and determined to act boldly and collectively on behalf of justice and prosperity at home and abroad. Comment: While your economic plan is going to kill economic growth at home and abroad.
Obama said: I have been in office for just nine months — though some days it seems a lot longer. Comment: We Americans think it seems like a lifetime.
Obama said: 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. Comment: Mistrust fomented by Obama’s media friends in the worldwide press and by Obama’s own constant criticism of America.
Obama said: … because the time has come for the world to move in a new direction. We must embrace a new era of engagement based on mutual interest and mutual respect, and our work must begin now. Comment: Then why are you alienating our allies like Poland by withdrawing the missile shield, Mr. President?
Obama said: On my first day in office, I prohibited — without exception or equivocation — the use of torture by the United States of America. I ordered the prison at Guantanamo Bay closed, and we are doing the hard work of forging a framework to combat extremism within the rule of law. Every nation must know: America will live its values, and we will lead by example. Comment: Yes, prosecute our CIA guys and treat the terrorists like rock stars. Yay, America…
Obama said: I have outlined a comprehensive agenda to seek the goal of a world without nuclear weapons. Comment: Yet Obama buddy Jimmy Carter helped to overthrow the pro-American Shah of Iran in 1979, leading to the Iranian regime today that is the biggest nuclear proliferator of all.
Obama said: To confront climate change, we have invested $80 billion in clean energy. We have substantially increased our fuel-efficiency standards. We have provided new incentives for conservation, launched an energy partnership across the Americas, and moved from a bystander to a leader in international climate negotiations. Comment: We can solve all of the world’s energy problems with nuclear power, which Obama opposes because it is not controlled by the government. And his “investment” is always government money going down the drain financing inefficient sources like windmills.
Obama said: Those who used to chastise America for acting alone in the world cannot now stand by and wait for America to solve the world’s problems alone. We have sought — in word and deed — a new era of engagement with the world. And now is the time for all of us to take our share of responsibility for a global response to global challenges. Comment: Except that most world governments are run by lazy socialists like the Euros, who won’t lift a finger for anyone except themselves.
Obama said: Or we can be a generation that chooses to see the shoreline beyond the rough waters ahead; that comes together to serve the common interests of human beings, and finally gives meaning to the promise embedded in the name given to this institution: the United Nations. Comment: Uh, sir, the body that has contributed the most to world peace, stability and prosperity is called the United STATES.
Obama said: A fragile consensus stands in the way of this frightening outcome, and that is the basic bargain that shapes the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. It says that all nations have the right to peaceful nuclear energy… Comment: So why do you not want America to use peaceful nuclear energy? Or rather your enviro radicals like Van Jones do not want America to use it.
Obama said: That brings me to the second pillar for our future: the pursuit of peace. Comment. Yes, the “peace” that we saw when your union thugs were beating up health-care protestors in the streets of America.
Obama said: That effort must begin with an unshakeable determination that the murder of innocent men, women and children will never be tolerated. Comment: Does that include the unborn?
Obama said: The danger posed by climate change cannot be denied. Comment: It damn sure can be denied. It’s all a hoax.
Obama said: And that is why the days when America dragged its feet on this issue are over. We will move forward with investments to transform our energy economy, while providing incentives to make clean energy the profitable kind of energy. We will press ahead with deep cuts in emissions to reach the goals that we set for 2020, and eventually 2050. Comment: Those “deep cuts” in emissions means gasoline at $8 a gallon so that nobody can afford to create any emissions.
Obama said: It’s hard to change something as fundamental as how we use energy. I know that. Comment: Everything you know about energy comes from an enviro fearmonger pamphlet.
Obama said: And this leads me to the final pillar that must fortify our future: a global economy that advances opportunity for all people. Comment: Yes, except white people who pass firefighter tests in Connecticut.
Obama said: … we will work with the world’s largest economies to chart a course for growth that is balanced and sustained. That means vigilance to ensure that we do not let up until our people are back to work. That means taking steps to rekindle demand so that global recovery can be sustained. Comment: Which all your debt and taxes will make impossible.
Obama said: Growth will not be sustained or shared unless all nations embrace their responsibilities. Comment: Yes, their responsibility to abandon no-growth socialism in favor of capitalism.
