Absolutely nauseating, in case anyone caught the Newsweek editor on MSNBC's Hardball (which they should rename softball) with Chris Matthews. Between this and Brian Williams' obsequious nose-up-the-butt
series on Obomo this fawning media lovefest grows worse daily. Has the media now become like the North Korean press reporting on Kim Jong Il?
I found a much more realistic description of Dear Leader's latest junket HERE now granted I know it's an op-ed piece, but I happen to agree with it, especially the, ahem, "ironies" the author, Ralph Peters, points out about Dear Leader's revisionist history:
So OK, we'd like to hope Obomo, decked out in his dookie chain that he bowed to receive from Saudi King Abdullah's peeps, fared a little better in Europe but I hear Sarkozy's peeved the Obomos stood him up for din-din in Paris.Women can dress any way they want in Saudi Arabia. Just my analysis, based on Obama's insistence that Islam recognizes "the dignity of all human beings" and that Muslim women must be free to make their own decisions about what to wear. Surely, fashion choices extend to Mecca and Medina, not just Detroit and Paris?
"Islam has always been a part of America's story." Guess the Founding Fathers missed that one. But I'm assured that George Washington turned to his mullah in the dark days at Valley Forge, that Daniel Boone read the Koran around the campfire, and that al Qaeda stood by us at the Alamo.
Yeah, there was that misunderstanding with the Muslim Barbary Pirates, when they killed, kidnapped and enslaved American citizens for years - but who's perfect?
There are "nearly seven million American Muslims." Who knew? We all thought there were three or four million, max. Is this a preview of the predetermined results of our upcoming census? [Note to editor: Confirm numbers with ACORN.]
"It was not violence that won full and equal rights" for black Americans. So much for the Civil War and my ancestor, who volunteered to wear Union blue and paid for it with his life. I thought a half-million Americans died fighting to end slavery. Silly me. Still, it was brave of our president to highlight slavery's "lash of the whip" in his speech, since his own ancestors, as Muslims along Africa's Swahili Coast, would have been complicit - if not actively engaged - in enslaving their fellow black Africans for Arab masters. As a self-proclaimed "student of history," Obama surely knows that.
Aren't those pesky Jews ever going to go away? Yes, denying the Holocaust is "hateful." But let's get a grip. Palestinians "endure . . . daily humiliations." Their lot's "intolerable." Israel "devastates Palestinian families." No wonder our president shunned wicked Israel during his trip - sending a clear, if unspoken, message that Jews are now fair game.
"America's strong bonds with Israel are . . . unbreakable." Yup. And they're issued by Chrysler.
And about that dookie chain and pendant: I think someone else had a go at extremely tacky and tasteless gifting. Check out the gift from Saudi Arabia; it's pretty generally agreed even by a black reporter in the Washington Post that this ghetto fab necklace looks like something a rap star, pimp or drug dealer would wear (LOL).
Who besides me think this was intentional?
