I cringe every time I hear of the next planned Apology Tour. How could you NOT be embarrassed by Obongo gifting the Queen of England with an iPod filled with show tunes PLUS inauggeration scenes and Obongo speeches? Or him bowing down to the king of the muzzie world as he gratefully accepts a dookie chain that made him look like a drug dealing pimp? Or glad handing with good buddy Hugo Chavez? Or urging nuclear non proliferation by pledging the U.S. to give up all its nukes? I don't need to 'graciously disagree' with dnf; this president makes a mockery of the office and the nation every time he sets foot on foreign soil.
I'm at least happy now, as are many other Americans, that we don't find ourselves 'cringing' every time our president travels abroad, wondering if he's going say something stupid, trash etiquette, or otherwise be a poor reflection on our good people. It got embarrassing to hear people laughing in the audience....when he wasn't telling jokes.
