Our President is an apologist who lacks the courage and backbone to stand up for America and her principles and interests abroad. He also has no business flying to Copenhagen with his wife, risking his esteem and clout, to advocate fiercely and passionately for America on the high-stakes global stage that is the International Olympic Committee deliberations.
Our President is trying to do too much, shoving his maniacal "change" agenda down the throats of the American people with breakneck pace. Unless of course he flies to Copenhagen to try to bring a great honor to America in which case he is the laziest, most irresponsible, most derelict president in the history of our nation and that includes that fucker Van Buren.
This is this judgment of the right-wing noisemakers to whom this President can do absolutely, positively no good. This is the judgment of the "unappeasable opposition."
One would think most Americans would put politics aside to rally behind their leader and his earnest efforts to bring the glory of the greatest games on earth to the greatest country on earth. One would presume too much of some people.
"He's the president of the United States, not the mayor of Chicago," said House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Loompaland). You're right Congressman, he was only elected by the country, not Chicago, dur!
“The first lady should have been the 'lead' here,” Esteemed Chairman of the RNC Michael "Where's The Fire?" Steele said. “Let her go and sell Chicago.” Exactly, Mike. This is just the kind of insignificant, womanly, "cute" idea that can best be handled by a chic. Like redecorating the powder room.
“If [health care] is that important, Mr. President, then stay home and get it done." Ah, nicely done Steelman. I see what you did there. But why, pray, would you care to "rush" health care reform?
A few more samples of conservative glee and joy over America's loss:
RedState's Erick Erickson: "Hahahahaha. I thought the world would love us more now that Bush was gone. I thought if we whored ourselves out to our enemies, great things would happen. Apparently not. So Obama's pimped us to every two bit thug and dictator in the world, made promises to half the Olympic committee, and they did not even kiss him."
Hahahahaha America sucks SO MUCH!
Limbaugh: "[This is] the worst day of his presidency."
A case to be made, except when you've decreed every day of the past seven months with the same title, the effect is muted. Sorta like how even though you've lost 80 pounds, you're still 240 pounds of douche.
Hannity: "Gang violence in Chicago leaves a teenager dead, and the shocking events are caught on tape. Should the President be pushing to bring the Olympics to this city?"
A child was assaulted by a larger classmate on a playground in Washington, DC. Should Obama be condoning such hate by LIVING there? A man was mugged on a street in Manhattan. Why did Obama CHOOSE to go to college there? Hawai'i is a hotbed of violent volcano eruptions. SHOULD OBAMA BE ENDORSING VOLCANOES BY (ALLEGEDLY) BEING BORN THERE????
Malkin: "Goodbye, 'Yes We Can.' Hello, 'No, You Can’t.' Like Icarus, President Obama’s giddy ego flight has ended with melted wax and fallen wings. This is a big win and a massive relief for taxpayers."
Yes we can revel as our president crashes to earth like a mythical Greek character while we stand on top of the flag in our earned victory over the Obamalympics! And if your pride is still hurting in a recession that has already shaken it to the core, just think of all the taxes you won't have to pay that you likely wouldn't have had to pay anyway!
Beck: "[It cost] approximately $1.2 million to fly Air Force One over to Copenhagen and it will spew over a million pounds of CO2 into the atmosphere, while at the same time [Obama] lectures us on carbon emissions."
$1.2 million is a quite a bit less than the amount of advertising revenue Glenn's variety show, on which quite a bit of hot air is emitted, has lost since July.
"Obama's just going to Copenhagen to find out commie ways to make Americans HAPPY LIKE THE DANISH."
Unattributed, but I'm sure somebody said it.
Yes folks, while the President and his wife and his wife's wife Oprah went to Copenhagen to appeal to the all-powerful IOC to award the 2016 games to the Windy City, displaying not only a deep and abiding affection for their home city but immense pride and love for country, conservatives back home were busy actively rooting against not only an American president but an American city in America full of Americans.
appeasing terrorists. When he spoke to French and German students about American relations with Europe, it was dubbed the "Apology Tour." But when this president stood up as a champion of America before the world (as he always has), he was told by these same ethnocentric chest-beaters to take a seat. I for one would rather my president serve as our greatest, most active ambassador to the world, exhibiting what is best about our country and promoting it with conviction and pride yet touched with humility and grace. And I would rather my president take a large risk to do so, leave his reputation and name on the line, take a shot for my country, than to sit back and let a weaker advocate take his place. That's the kind of leadership I expect from my president. I root for America, not for a political party. Curious how the people who wrongly accused me of doing just the opposite just a few years ago are inexcusably guilty of it now.
