As I wrote last night, this may become a daily feature on Right View From The Left Coast!
Today, the honor of Idiot Of The Day goes to our Dear Leader, President Obama, and his abysmal speech before the freak show a.k.a. the United Nations general assembly.
Just a note.
The Dear Leader, President Obama, was followed by the Libyan dictator and Mickey Rourke double, Mohamar Khadafy.
One can leave it alone at that, but one needs to dissect the speech from the Dear Leader, President Obama, as to why he gets this wondrous title for a day.
Take a look at the second paragraph from the Dear Leader, President Obama:
I have been in office for just nine months, though some days it seems a lot longer. I am well aware of the expectations that accompany my presidency around the world. These expectations are not about me.
Ok, we all know that when the Dear Leader, President Obama, says that it is not about him, well it is always about him.
Get to the third paragraph of the speech to get the first taste of apologizing for what a wretched nation the United States had been but a few months ago:
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. Part of this was due to opposition to specific policies, and a belief that on certain critical issues, America has acted unilaterally, without regard for the interests of others. This has fed an almost reflexive anti-Americanism, which too often has served as an excuse for our collective inaction.
Dear Leader, President Obama, the reason that many of the freak show you were speaking to has the anti-American attitude is because they do not like the United States. They do not like what we have stood for well over 230 years as a nation. These freaks do not like the fact that the United States will always act in the interests of the United States. pure, plain and simple.
Now, to his credit, the Dear Leader, President Obama, does the obligatory 'my responsibility is to act in the interest of my nation and my people, and I will never apologize for defending those interests.' yada, yada, yada. And literally in the next breath he talks about 'the interests of nations and peoples are shared.'
The Dear Leader, President Obama, went on to talk about sharing mutual interests and acting in concord, yada, yada, yada.
and there is this funny line from the Dear Leader, President Obama:
Speeches alone will not solve our problems .
Really? Well, it sure has been all that you have done in regards to your vaunted so-called health-care "reform".
Now back to the Freak Show.
The Dear Leader went on to talk about all the things that he did since he took office.
Remember back to the beginning of this post, when the Dear Leader, President Obama, said that the expectations were not about him.
Sure, Dear Leader!
As he goes on to discuss his "Four Pillars" policies, this is the coup de grace as to why the Dear Leader, President Obama, gains the title Idiot Of The Day.
In reference to the Israel-Palestinian war, the Dear Leader, President Obama, makes this moronic statement:
The goal is clear: two states living side by side in peace and security - a Jewish State of Israel, with true security for all Israelis; and a viable, independent Palestinian state with contiguous territory that ends the occupation that began in 1967, and realizes the potential of the Palestinian people.
I highlight the "ends the occupation that began in 1967 because it shows that the Dear Leader, President Obama, is just stupid about the 1967 war.
Over 200,000 Arab troops from Egypt, Jordan and Syria were massing on the tenuous borders of Israel with the full intention of wiping off the Jewish state once and for all. Israel knew that this was coming and launched a surprise air assault on the Egyptian air force, the strongest of the Arab armed forces. The Israeli air force decimated the Egyptian air force. In six days, against supposedly some of the strongest armies of the world, Israel gained the Golan Heights from Syria. The West Bank from Jordan. The Sinai peninsula and the Gaza Strip from Egypt. Israel gained much more than double its total land area. Over the years, Israel gave the Sinai back to Egypt, a large portion of the West Bank and all of the Gaza Strip to the Palestinians. The only territorial gain that Israel did not give back was the Golan Heights. To equate Israel with being an occupying force akin to a conquering nation is absurd. If they could, they would give up every bit of land gained if the Arab and Islamic fanatics would just leave them alone.
The whole speech is sophomoric at best and shows that this president, The Dear Leader, Obama, is way in over his head.
We can only be thankful that there is now only 1,214 days left of this presidency.
But, at least the Dear Leader, President Obama can say that he gets the Right View From The Left Coast IDIOT OF THE DAY!
