Obama fits like a glove

Reader comment on item: Obama, the Middle East and Islam - An Initial Assessment

Submitted by jennifer solis (United States), Feb 11, 2009 at 16:21

Obama fits like a glove the deception, the lie behind his statements.

"We need to restore the same respect and partnership that America had with the Muslim world as recently as 20 or 30 years ago" (interview on al-Arabia television); "To the Muslim world, we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect" (at his inaugural address) . Of course he would forget about the oil embargo of the 70's. Of course he would forget about 1979's American hostage crisis in Iran. Of course he would foget about the Marine barracks massacre of 1983. Of course he would foget about innumerable attacks on U.S. embassies around the world. Of course he would forget the U.S.'s military campaigns which resulted in the liberation of hundreds of thousands of Muslim people in Bosnia, Kosovo, Kuwait, Afghanistan and Iraq. Of course he would forget that in the last "20 years" the U.S. has done more for Muslims around the world than any nation, Muslim or otherwise.

Not surprisingly, Obama as well forgets about the role and sacrifice of our soldiers, their families during these last "20-30 years". If Obama's "new" way is based on mutual respect, what was it based on before? His arrogance is blinding; he hopes his apology towards our enemies, and demagoguery towards our citizens, will be just as blinding.

Yesterday on Neil Cavuto, the guest pointed out some of the "pork" spending during president Bush's watch. Someone should have replied, never was this dumped on the American people in the guise of a "Stimulus" bill.

A $790,000,000,000 "Stimulus" bill.

Obama's M.O. is, "deception equals success". He's used it regarding his birth, Muslim background, closing of Guantanamo, past associations with radicals and terrorists (Islamic or otherwise), and now, with the American citizen's tax dollars.

That last one might just be the one to break the Obama formula.
