So, Obama bows before the King of Saudi Arabia, the same king who holds our nation hostage with his oil because we just won't drill our own. The President of the United States of America bowed before the king of a nation who manipulates our economy by the amount of oil his country produces.
This is just another in a series of forehead-slapping moments that our "experience is not necessary" President has provided us, and the world, with in less than three months in office.
Let's take a stroll down less-than 90 days of memories since January 20, 2009.
Ah, yes, we started the new year with an emergency spending package to save the economy. Yet, more than half of the spending occurs AFTER the economic crisis is predicted to be OVER. That's the same as if you were in a sinking ship, and then mortgaged your house to pay for the fix after you've reached port...ignoring the fact that there is still a hole taking on water as you spent that money. If the money was needed on an emergency basis, why is it being spent in the months leading up to the mid-term elections...AHA!!!!!
Oh, and then the budget with defense spending cuts, yet it is nearly double the current budget.
And let us not forget Obama's tact, statesmanship, class, and historic gifts he has bestowed upon heads of state. Instead of reading my personal opinion, please read the words of Ian Drury, writer for the Daily Mail, a UK newspaper. The article is entitled "To my special friend Gordon, 25 DVDs: Obama gives Brown a set of classic movies. Let's hope he likes the Wizard of Oz."
Ian Drury's piece...
As he headed back home from Washington, Gordon Brown must have rummaged through his party bag with disappointment.
Because all he got was a set of DVDs. Barack Obama, the leader of the world's richest country, gave the Prime Minister a box set of 25 classic American films - a gift about as exciting as a pair of socks.
Mr Brown is not thought to be a film buff, and his reaction to the box set is unknown. But it didn't really compare to the thoughtful presents he had brought along with him.
The Prime Minister gave Mr Obama an ornamental pen holder made from the timbers of the Victorian anti-slave ship HMS Gannet.
The unique present delighted Mr Obama because oak from the Gannet's sister ship, HMS Resolute, was carved to make a desk that has sat in the Oval Office in the White House since 1880.
Mr Brown also handed over a framed commission for HMS Resolute and a first edition of the seven-volume biography of Churchill by Sir Martin Gilbert.
In addition, Mr Brown and his wife showered gifts on the Obama children giving Sasha and Malia an outfit each from Topshop and six children's books by British authors which are shortly to be published in America.
In return, the Obamas gave the Browns two models of the presidential helicopter, Marine One, to take home to sons Fraser and John.
Wow! What a statesman. What a brilliant gift-giver. What a leader!
Oh, and then he does even better with his gift to the Queen of England.
He gives her an IPOD loaded with showtunes and pictures of herself on her visit to America.
And, then he bows to the King of Saudi Arabia, then his mouthpieces Robert Gibbs and MSNBC, say he was bending due to the height difference. Nice attempt at spin. Too bad the video shows differently.
Obama is a joke. He cannot speak without a teleprompter. If he does, he makes insulting comments like he did on the Tonight Show, where he insulted the bowling abilities of children in the Special Olympics. Yes, our President made fun of his own bowling ability by making light of the difficulties children in the Special Olympics deal with.
Oh, and I love the fact that my grand children will be giving half their paychecks to pay down the debt we have incurred in only the last 80-some-odd days. Washington through Bush (43) totalled up less debt and deficit in the 230 years of this nation's history than Obama has in less than 3 months. We went over two centuries with less debt than we have amassed in 2 months.
And, Obama still writes checks on American tax payers with wreckless abandon.
Instead of relying on the abilities of Washington, DC, area chefs, knowing full well that White House chefs are among the best in the world, Obama spends tax-payer money to fly in a PIZZA chef from St. Louis, ingredients, dough, and utensils in tow, to the White House for a casual luncheon with over 140 people. He flew a PIZZA chef, staff, and business partners, along with the ingredients, from St. Louis to DC for a lunch. All on your and my tax dollars.
Not to mention the almost daily extravagant balls and parties and dinners the Obamas host in the White House, or in Chicago, to impress their 'friends' and co-horts.
All at our expense.
Meanwhile, they tease us and stir us up to get mad at AIG execs getting their contractually obligated bonuses. (No one dare tell you that the AIG execs who recieved the bonuses are in different divisions than those responsible for the failed portions of the company...oh, Keith Olberman didn't tell you?)
I am counting the days until November 6, 2012, when we can get back to normal. When we can get some class, honesty, decency, and leadership in the White House.
