Only an un-American individual can say and believe that government is the source of prosperity when it was and is the prosperity of the private sector that funded government...
look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something -- there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. (Applause.)
If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business -- you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own.
Perhaps Obama simply hates America.
- Look to our friends in Eastern Europe. Both the Chech Republic and Poland thrown to the Russian bear. A gift to Russia.
- Look to Honduras: following their constitutional law and removing a man from power for unconstitutionally attempting to remove his term limits. Who does the administration support? The would-be tyrant and friend of Chavez, of course.
- Now this below...
A strong communist nation is good for our would and should not be contained? Could an American President have said this? Sadly, yes. The O.
Is there a communist/socialist or tyrannical nation not supported over a democratic nation by this man?
But, of course, he can fall back on his educated cultural sensibilities (recall "merci beaucoup") and:
Perhaps video of the photo above will better explain:
How many times did he bow? I lost count...
But what is his history in this respect? How about this video:
Perhaps he feels it is prudent to show respect. Lets see how expresses his respect for one of our closest allies:
Sigh: Perhaps President Obama is attempting to meet cultural expectations. Can he meet the expectations of his own country?(H/T Ace) :
Again. Who is this man?
In yet another move, apparently to humiliate an ally of the United States, Obama disrespects Netanyahu.
Bejamin Netanyahu was left to stew in a White House meeting room for over an hour after President Barack Obama abruptly walked out of tense talks to have supper with his family.
When the Israeli prime minister stalled, Mr Obama rose from his seat declaring: "I'm going to the residential wing to have dinner with Michelle and the girls."
As he left, Mr Netanyahu was told to consider the error of his ways. "I'm still around," Mr Obama is quoted by Israel's Yediot Ahronot newspaper as having said. "Let me know if there is anything new."
For over an hour, Mr Netanyahu and his aides closeted themselves in the Roosevelt Room on the first floor of the White House to map out a response to the president's demands.
"There is no humiliation exercise that the Americans did not try on the prime minister and his entourage," Israel's Maariv newspaper reported. "Bibi received in the White House the treatment reserved for the president of Equatorial Guinea."
The true embarrassment is our imperialistic President of arrogance. Any president who disrespects a visiting head of state, an ally, in this manner is a lost soul.
Perhaps soulless doesn't cover it. Obama also ushered the Dali Lama out of the back door of the white house past the garbage.
What kind of man treats allies and friends with such disrespect. Who is Obama?
In Nov 2009 Obama was busy bowing to Chinese President Hu Jintao. At around the one minute mark Obam gives multiple bows and one that is quite deep...
Sigh...Yet another bow to Chinese President Hu Jintao.
