Remember Obama was going to repair our relationships with our allies?
For unknown reasons, voters actually BELIEVED that a liberal nutso-anti-American president with no understanding of anything outside the classroom other than what he’d read from Alinsky could actually “repair” international relationships – or any other kind. I mean, heck, he’s already set-back American race relations 40 years, and he’s only been in office 16 months!
(One could make the case this is a result of liberal-union-mal-education of two generations of American voters, but I have made that case so many times I am tired of repeating myself. Do be aware, however, that unless teacher unions are outlawed, each succeeding generation of Americans will be less-well-educated than the preceding generation for the first time since the invention of printing. This certainly is true of Boomers – they are far less-educated than their parents, and of all generations subsequent to the Boomers – Gen X, Gen Y, etc. THIS is a heckuva legacy for “progressives” to leave as we become a third-world nation of babies electing empty suits and spending money that won’t be earned over the next century, if ever.)
Yes, adults with brain cells understood this to be folly all along – that’s why we didn’t vote for the man.
And now, a word from one of the leading opinion-makers in that international scene Obama was going to repair:
“Let me be clear, I’m not normally in favour of boycotts, and I love the America people. I holiday in their country regularly, and hate the tedious snobby sneers against the United States. But the American people chose to elect an idiot who seems hell bent on insulting their allies, and something must be done to stop Obama’s reckless foreign policy, before he does the dirty on his allies on every issue.”
