State of the Union: Barack Obama gets an F for world leadership

by Bob in Breckenridge ( 144 Comments › )
Filed under Barack Obama, Democratic Party, Politics, Progressives at January 28th, 2010 - 5:30 pm

As usual, we have to go overseas to read REAL journalism that exposes the truth about our miserable and petulant little man-child in the White House, the Failure-in-Chief, AKA The Zero™…

As expected, Barack Obama’s 70 minute State of the Union address focused heavily on the economy and the domestic political agenda. This was hardly surprising in the aftermath of last week’s catastrophic defeat for his party in the Massachusetts special Senate election, where the Republicans scored an historic victory. American voters are turning strongly against the president’s health care reform package as well as his big government vision for the economy, which has contributed to spiraling public debt and mounting unemployment, now standing at over 10 percent.

But the scant attention paid in the State of the Union speech to US leadership was pitiful and frankly rather pathetic. The war in Afghanistan, which will soon involve a hundred thousand American troops, merited barely a paragraph. There was no mention of victory over the enemy, just a reiteration of the president’s pledge to begin a withdrawal in July 2011. Needless to say there was nothing in the speech about the importance of international alliances, and no recognition whatsoever of the sacrifices made by Great Britain and other NATO allies alongside the United States on the battlefields of Afghanistan. For Barack Obama the Special Relationship means nothing, and tonight’s address further confirmed this.

    I have just started reading Marc Thiessen’s new book, Courting Disaster: How the CIA Kept America Safe and How Barack Obama Is Inviting the Next Attack
    I am only a few pages in immediately though I know most of this stuff anyway, it is starkly clear how dangerous Obaba is. Please get this book and read it.

    It was a huge diss to our troops and allies esp the UK. I don’t think he has much respect for the former colonial masters of his absent fathers homeland. What a psychological mess this guy is. Very disturbing to watch and unfortunately we are being forced along for the ride. Buckle up.

    How many times did he even mention the troops in that 70-minute bore fest? I saw a lot of smug posturing and insult flinging. What an insult indeed. Bug-eyed Pelosi jumping up and down to every ovation. I think there were 86 of them if the media counted correctly.


  8. 8 | January 28, 2010 6:02 pm

    Urban Infidel -- The beginning of the speech was notable for NOT being stuffed with ovation-lines. This preamble wasn’t GOOD, but at least we were spared that particular form of awfulness. (The rest of the speech had every other form of awfulness, as has been documented here, at Ace’s, and on NRO.)

    On topic here, if Obama keeps this up, our allies are going to bail on us and then leak a bunch of stuff about how much we suck. Won’t THAT do wonders for our prestige.

    The radio is playing a clip from last night’s teleprompter reading event and he says he wants the R’s on board with him and not to stay on the sidelines! Bastard! As if the R’s were the one’s to lock themselves out of all the talks and be given the unwelcome mat over and over.

    The only good news is that it looks like the KSM trials might not happen in NYC. Military charges have been withdrawn and no civil charges have been brought yet. Even if they aren’t tried downtown, it really isn’t completely a matter of where they are tried, but how.

    Plain and simple, we, America, needed this.

    Picking a President and a Congress is serious business — not a contest about who is smooth and cool.

    I am not sure how we the people are going to go about vetting our representatives better but understand this, the only non-violent way we have to make them do our will is through the vote.

    Past that they do what they feel is right.

    So now we are the teachers to this recalcitrant 48 year old student who thinks he snowed us this long…

    … so what the heck?

    Well, I guess we can’t accuse Obama of that.
    He doesn’t care that the public names terrorism as a major concern, right after jobs.
    He doesn’t care if 70% of likely voters think this health bill should be either scrapped or postponed until economic recovery.
    He doesn’t care at all what the people want.
    The guy is a sociopathic ideologue.

    I like this idea

    Obama’s Glass Jaw

    Obama hates being ridiculed.

    At 48:45 on the cspan feed, Republicans laugh when he says the freeze will start next year. Obama pauses, clinches his jaw, and adds the off-script line “that’s how budgeting works.” Then Democrats laugh back at the Republicans and applaud.

    If you saw the fox feed, it was on the tight shot when he said it. I remember being struck at how angry his face looked, much like it did after Joe Wilson’s comment last year.

    That’s his greatest weakness. Republicans should just start laughing at him and making jokes.

    We’ll go through the gate. If the gate’s closed, we’ll go over a fence. If the fence is too high, we’ll pole vault in. If that doesn’t work, we’ll parachute in but we’re going to get health care reform passed for the American people.”

    err.. file this under things that make you go hmmmm….

    The S.E.C. voted to force publicly traded companies to “disclose in their public filings the impact of climate change on their businesses — from new regulations or legislation they may face domestically or abroad, to potential changes in economic trends or physical risks to a company.”

    What happens when these disclosures show how much the Obama Energy Tax would cost these companies — costs they will immediately pass on to their customers? Proponents of cap-and-trade may wind up regretting this particular bit of red tape.

    She frowned and sneered from the moment she came into the room. Like she did not want to be there.
    The public noticed her anger. She hasn’t changed a bit. even with all her good fortune. She is too entrenched in anger to shift gears and be thankful. She is a very bitter unhappy person. Miserable.

    @ coldwarrior:

    more detail

    A politically divided Securities and Exchange Commission voted on Wednesday to make clear when companies must provide information to investors about the business risks associated with climate change.
    The commission, in a 3 to 2 vote, decided to require that companies disclose in their public filings the impact of climate change on their businesses — from new regulations or legislation they may face domestically or abroad to potential changes in economic trends or physical risks to a company.
    Chairman Mary L. Schapiro and the two Democrats on the commission supported the new requirements, while the two Republicans vehemently opposed them.
    “I can only conclude that the purpose of this release is to place the imprimatur of the commission on the agenda of the social and environmental policy lobby, an agenda that falls outside of our expertise and beyond our fundamental mission of investor protection,” Republican commissioner Kathleen L. Casey said.

    Clearly, Casey correctly diagnoses the Democrats’ intentions on this point. They want to highlight the potential damage that some corporations do through carbon emissions, while highlighting the benefits from others who play along on AGW. Putting this in the jurisdiction of the SEC is a two-fer for the Obama administration — they can claim regulatory gains on both AGW and Wall Street


  98. rain of lead
    101 | January 28, 2010 7:48 pm

    But this may hold the potential for enormous backfire. With the cap-and-trade legislation still on the docket, all of these corporations will have to forecast for higher energy prices, more restrictive manufacturing and service standards, and the costs of retrofitting. The Obama administration and Democrats in Congress have consistently and drastically underestimated the impact of their bills on the private sector. Now, by forcing companies to analyze the impact of their environmental agendas on their bottom lines, the American public can get a much clearer and much less optimistic take on cap-and-trade and carbon-tax regulations. Because those reports will be part of the public record, analysts can compile a daunting picture of the burdens the Democratic agenda will create on private business and economic growth.
    This effort still should have been killed as a ridiculous overreach on regulation. Now that the SEC has forced the matter, their Democratic allies will shortly have reason to regret it.

    I am not sure I agree with this. If I understand this ruling correctly. Who is to be the arbiter of what business may or may not affect the climate? tthe SEC? thats surely beyond their expertise.

    So if Cows Flatulating affects the climate as some claim, will McDonalds have to put a dfisclosure on their SEC Filings?

    This is Govt interference in commerce. Plain and simple.
    Investors can decide if they want to invest in eco friendly companies or not. they don’t need the SEC to regulate this.
