- Isn't this the president that was going to change the U.S. image in the world? Certainly, he has done everything possible to apologize for the way that evil war-monger George W. mistreated those poor terrorists. Certainly, he has done his best (if you really believe it) to keep his 2008 promise of closing Guantanamo. Certainly, he has promoted the Arab Spring, now becoming the autumn prelude to the Arab winter. And, he drew a red line for Syria and it's leader and has acted on that, right?
- Oh, and how he has improved our image in the rest of the world. Why just look at the progress he's made with Vladimir Putin. He promised he'd have more flexibility after the November elections. He got that and ole Putin is kicking him in the face (we had a lower and more appropriate body part in mind but propriety prevents us from saying) over the one-year amnesty given Mr. Snowden.
- And of course, those folks in South America love the U.S. more than ever, right? More dictators, more communists, more of them joining together in opposition of the great imperialist to the north.
- And let's not forget Canada. Yes, it wants to send its oil to the U.S. in that environmentally evil Keystone XL Pipeline but our environmentalist leader who wants to promote jobs and energy independence (as long as its hot-air or more Solyndras) has it building a new pipeline to its east coast with a pending one likely to be financed by the Chinese to the west coast.
The latest hype about the potential terrorist danger only illustrates this 'leader's' impotence. Many Americans wonder whether these alerts aren't something contrived to justify his government snooping into their e-mails and phone conversations. Many can't help but wonder how his 'foreign policy' has failed so badly. Many wonder how he could possibly claim that Al Quada is on the run. But when you failed to respond and protect your embassy in Benghazi, why would you not show your tail and run in the face of other potential humiliations when you haven't established the ability to protect your own citizens in American embassies or across the Muslim world?
