The Superstar Obama's Apology Tour

Great Article from the Wall Street Journal on the President's Apology Tour
...In less than 100 days, he has apologized on three continents for what he views as the sins of America and his predecessors.

Mr. Obama told the French (the French!) that America "has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive" toward Europe. In Prague, he said America has "a moral responsibility to act" on arms control because only the U.S. had "used a nuclear weapon." In London, he said that decisions about the world financial system were no longer made by "just Roosevelt and Churchill sitting in a room with a brandy" -- as if that were a bad thing. And in Latin America, he said the U.S. had not "pursued and sustained engagement with our neighbors" because we "failed to see that our own progress is tied directly to progress throughout the Americas."....

....A superstar, not a statesman, today leads our country. That may win short-term applause from foreign audiences, but do little for what should be the chief foreign policy preoccupation of any U.S. president: advancing America's long-term interests.

"President Barack Obama came into office apparently believing that his non-traditional background, charisma and good intentions could placate dictators hostile to America and ease global tensions. ... But so far the world's thugs do not seem to appreciate that new goodwill. ... Obama's confusion about the world's bad actors suggests that he needs a general refresher course in the world of thugs. ... Being anti-American and mouthing tired charges about imperialism, colonialism or capitalism do not make a thug authentic or populist. By definition, thugs acquire power illegitimately. They keep it unlawfully. And they exercise it illegally -- regardless of their professed concern for the 'people' or their gripes against America. Thugs are thugs, and they come in all ideologies, colors and religions -- from Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe to North Korea's Kim Jong-il to the late Slobodan Milosevic of Serbia. ... Most of the world's problems are caused by a handful of thugs. Any time one can be isolated and replaced by a consensual government, the world gets just a bit safer. ... So, Mr. President, do not talk to a thug unless you absolutely have to. Do not apologize to -- or put our trust in -- one. And whenever people rise up against a thug, speak out immediately and forcefully on their behalf -- and let the thug, not America, worry about the consequences of the spread of freedom." --Hoover Institution historian Victor Davis Hanson

Since Obama feels it his duty to apologize in my place, I would like to apologize in his. I'm sorry we have a President who has decided to abuse our allies while embracing our enemies. I'm sorry that he treats the office of president with no more dignity and grace than an arrogant celebrity, while lowering the White House to the party level of the playboy mansion. Most of all, I'm sorry that we couldn't find agree on a true conservative to run against him.

I agree with the above comment completely!

I am sorry we have Obama for a president, period. He's spending us into oblivion and embarassing us to boot! I don't think he'll stop at anything. What is his true agenda anyway? Destroying America? Sure seems that way to me!

Great article by Carl Rove. Thanks for the link.

Kentucky Con & Gayle - Amen to your comments!! I couldn't agree with them more.
When I try to figure out Obama's true agenda - I think back to the 2001 Chicago radio clip that was broadcast right before the election - Obama tells us what his agenda is:

"But the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth. And served more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society. And, to that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution, at least as it has been interpreted.

And the Warren Court interpreted it in the same way that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties—it says what the states can’t do to you, says what the federal government can’t do to you, but it doesn’t say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf. And that hasn’t shifted and one of the, I think, the tragedies of the civil rights movement was because the civil rights movement became so court focused, I think there was the tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change. And in some ways we still suffer from that."

In Obama’s America, we’ll finally be able to break free of the “constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution” — and in so doing, achieve “social justice” through “redistributive change.”

Obama is a Marxist and despises the freedom America has had; therefore he apologizes to other countries for our success and our freedoms. He apologizes that "America has been a shining city upon a hill whose beacon light guides freedom-loving people everywhere."
