ok...while I do not agree with him fully as our President, I really think this is getting too insane for my likings
"1. Offended the Queen of England"
How? I missed this, but in all seriousness, she is a figurehead. Yes, bad form if he did offend her, but not a big deal.
"2. Bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia
4. Kissed Socialist Hugo Chavez on the cheek. "
These are customs to their countries. It would be insulting to not. And that's the last thing we want to do to a potential big enemy (Chavez) and
someone who controls our oil (King of Saudi) and lets not forget, wasn't Bush photographed holding hands with the Saudi King?
"22. Low altitude photo shoot of Air Force One over New York City that frightened thousands of New Yorkers."
Not HIS job to inform the individual citizens that this is happening. He can't go door to door saying "hey, just so you know, we'll be taking some
pics of a plane HEADS UP!"
"15. Appointed a Homeland Security Chief who identified military veterans and abortion opponents as "dangers to the nation." "
I would agree that SOME!! are. These two groups have radicals just like any...this statement could have been taken out of context, or the Security
Cheif is at fault more than Obama. Those were his words.
"18. Told the Mexican president that the violence in their country was because of us"
if it wasn't for our demand for drugs that are illegal here, the drug wars going on in Mexico would not be happening. So yes, it is our fault.
"23. Sent his National Defense Advisor to Europe to assure them that the US will no longer treat Israel in a special manner and they might be on
their own with the Muslims."
Something we've needed to do for the longest time. We have a history of silently sitting back and patting Israell on the head saying "it's ok, they
are bullies not you" When Israel is not that innocent.
Yes I did just pick a few out, but those are the ones I feel informed enough to comment on.
But what is the real point of this? It's yet again another chain mail type of thing that will lead to a thread of "YEAH! OBAMA BAD!" "NO HE'S
NOT" type thing.
Let's stop polarizing our country farther? Doesn't that seem like a smarter way of going about this?
