Obama's Global Expectations

I was reading an article on Yahoo News about Barack Obama and his expectations around the world if elected President of the United States and I can't help but feel very irritated about what the article says.


Here's all Barack Obama has to do to meet the world's expectations if he's elected president of the United States:

End an unpopular war in Iraq, heal misery in nations hit by the global food crisis and stop global warming in addition to building bridges to Muslim countries and reverse the unilateralist approach of the Bush administration.


Later on in the article it says:


In the Middle East, Israelis are suspicious of his suggestion that he might reach out to Iranian leaders; many lament the defeat of Hillary Rodham Clinton — whom they see as a more loyal friend of the Jewish state.

Some Arab leaders in surrounding countries are jittery over Obama's promise to curtail the U.S. military presence in Iraq because of fears an outbreak of civil war could quickly spread beyond its borders.


The President of the United States is elected to take care of things in the United States. He is elected to fit the needs and interests of the people of the United States. He is elected to represent the best course of action on behalf of the people of the United States.

He is NOT elected to suit Israelis, Iraqis, "Arab leaders", Canadians - none of them. He is elected by Americans for Americans, and I am sick of this importance that is put on pleasing the rest of the world.

When will we the people demand that our President stand up and take care of things at HOME? Why can't we please our people first? Why do we not care about what our people think first? Even on the news you hear about these people, in the United States, blasting politicians because they would not support this country or that country's safety and security.

How about we stand up for our own god damned security? We have borders for a reason. We're sovereign, and they're sovereign, for a reason. When are we going to take care of our own economy, our own security, our own health, our own technology and every other internal problem BEFORE we try to please the rest of the world?

I'm sick of this bull#. I'm sick of hearing people in this country complain, like American Jews or American Muslims, that we are not doing enough to support their home countries or their people. If you care so damn much, go back over there and help them out yourself.

I'm not one to tell people to "get out of my country" like every other ignorant American says to anyone who disagrees with them, but when is enough enough? Its time to start worrying about Americans and America before we worry about taking care of everyone else. We have enough problems as it is.

Obama' s global expectations can be understood best by following the money. It comes from George Soros, the Hungarian socialist manipulator of world finanacial markets.

He profits from bankrupting societies and then controling the government from within.

I am a Democrat; and I am now supporting McCain.

Why would you be aware of Obama's corruption and then turn around a support McCain? You don't have to vote for one or the other, you know.

I will vote for McCain because I do not want to see another civil war in the United States. And I know from long experience that no third party candidate (Ron Paul) can EVER win a Presidential election.

You know why they can't win? Because people think they have to vote for one or the other. People don't focus on the policies and the issues, its just gotten to the point where people vote for who they think is going to win, or who is their skin color, gender, from their state or any other nonsense reason they can think up.

There is no 'global expectation' from the rest of the world, just a lot of people moaning about America's influence, rightly or wrongly. Not everyone.

I wish people would remember that bringing the troops home does nothing except make the Muslims happier. Does it make the US a safer place? No. There are still billions of extremists ready and willing to harm us, regardless of where the troops are. 9/11 showed us very clearly;
If you don't go to them, they come to you.

Me ? I would prefer the battle to be happening over there instead of in my back yard, thank you very much.

Sure the next president could focus on the US itself, make things better at home, meantime China is taking over the world, but hey..... if that's what ya want...

I am absolutely amazed that that line of logic makes sense to people. "THE TERRORISTS WILL FOLLOW US BACK HOME!!!!11" Its like you people just regurgitate old Bush sayings and use them as some sort of valid argument.

If "they" "hate" us so much, and they supposedly have the capability to attack us, don't you think they would do it no matter where we are? Our presence in foreign nations is nothing new, yet they allegedly attacked us on 9/11.

Do you think terrorism didn't exist before 9/11? Do you think we weren't doing everything we could, or at least should have been doing everything we could, to prevent terrorism?

So what exactly happened on 9/11 that makes this anything new? What happened on 9/11 to make it even somewhat truthful that, as long as we're deployed in two wars, the terrorists won't attack us? The wars recruit MORE EXTREMISTS. That is MORE people we have to worry about. That is an INCREASED risk of attack.

Do you think there aren't sleeper cells in the United States? Do you honestly think that there isn't even one lone extremist who isn't waiting to take orders from a dead boogeyman in a cave?

Start thinking on your own and stop spitting up the Bush propaganda as a valid argument.

If you think its such a problem, you go over there and fight it.

Thats what I can't stand about arm chair "patriots". You wave your Go America! signs and declare your "patriotic" support for the wars, and this support somehow makes you a good American, yet you're too afraid or would be too inconvenienced to go over there and help out.

Its people like you that tell "conspiracy theorists" that if they're so upset with how things are in this country to go and change it; to stop complaining about it and take action.

Where's your action against this over-exaggerated threat you've decided to buy into wholeheartedly? Is it too much of an inconvenience for you?
