After a Sunday AM new-show blitz and a Mon. eve. appearance with David Letterman, and with his Cap & Trade legislation stalled in Congress, getting more and more attention by folks terrified of huge tax increases for energy, and with his health care agenda being attacked by both right and left, what’s a good little Obamessiah to do? Why, go to the U.N. of course and overexpose himself some more. Lots more!
So, after deciding to become the first President of the United States to preside over a meeting of the UN Security Council on the 24th, proceeded by a couple of days hobnobbing with the diplomats in the General Assembly, what do ya think he would pick for his opening topic? The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? Nope. The resurgence of Al-Qaeda and the Taliban? Nope. The looming terror threat of 12 Al-Qaeda sleeper agents on the loose right now in the U.S. giving the F.B.I. and Secret Service fits? Nope. The timid economic recovery and increasing unemployment within the context of the interconnected world economy? Nope. Well, Okie — what the hell was it then?
Bwwhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! You say. You got to be totally off your rocker. But wait — like Ginzu — there’s more. According to CBS News who quotes the Chosen One thus:
“It is true that for too many years, mankind has been slow to respond to or even recognize the magnitude of the climate threat. It is true of my own country as well,” Mr. Obama said at a climate change forum hosted by United Nation Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. “But this is a new day. It is a new era. And I am proud to say that the United States has done more to promote clean energy and reduce carbon pollution in the last eight months than at any other time in our history.”
Reread that last comment slowly . . . The hubris of this guy is astounding! Bet this next one bags our smoker-ion-chief a box o’ Cubans: Fidel Castro praises Obama on climate change — Noooooooo. Reeeeeally? Aw, shucks — Dude!
Barack Obama’s call for action on climate change and his admission that rich nations have a particular responsibility to lead has received strong praise from an unusual source — U.S. nemesis Fidel Castro.
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.
Actually, no other American head of state would have had the
courage temerity to make similar remarks. After that tour de force, on the same day, he decided to tackle Israeli/Palestinian peace: the lack of progress on this is making him . . . ah, cranky.
“It is past time to stop talking about starting negotiations; it is time to move forward,” Mr. Obama said Tuesday after meeting with the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, and the president of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, on the margins of the United Nations General Assembly’s opening.
“Permanent status negotiations must begin and begin soon,” Mr. Obama said, flanked by Mr. Netanyahu and Mr. Abbas. “So my message to these two leaders is clear: despite all the obstacles, all the history, all the mistrust, we have to find a way forward.”
Today, he’s addressing the ENTIRE WORLD and telling them that Uncle Sam ain’t gonna be there for them anymore, not on his watch!
In his first address to the U.N. General Assembly, Obama sought to set a new tone in U.S. relations, moving away from the unilateralism of his predecessor, George W. Bush. He coupled conciliatory words about a “new era of engagement” with a summons for other nations to shoulder more of the burden.
“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,” Obama said.
“Now is the time for all of us to take our share of responsibility for a global response to global challenges.”
In response to Obama’s speech Michelle Malkin writes:
Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton noted Obama’s extraordinary self-referentialism mixed with Wilsonian naivete and anti-Bush subtext, and joked that the president “did everything but break out and ask ‘Can’t we all just get along?’”
There was a momentary delay before blood-stained, jihadi-enabling thug Moammar Gadhafi took the podium. He’s babbling about “climate change” and waving around the U.N. charter. Praises “our son” from Africa, Barack Obama.
It’s a cum-bye-ya world, don’t ya know? If you ask reeeal nice, and put some purty-please with some suga on it, them bad ol’ boys around the globe will just stop all that killin’, all that nuclear-bomb makin’, all them wemen-desecratin’ activities, join hands and create a Utopia right here on this ol’ Earth.
And, he ain’t done yet! Tomorrow — he presides over the UN Security Council meeting where my bet is he’ll officially announce at least his intention to unilaterally disarm the U.S. nuclear arsenal. That should get him some applause, oh ya betcha!
Can we wake up now? I’m not likin’ this nightmare . . .
