The Talented Mr. Obama

Reader comment on item: Obama vs Netanyahu, Round Three

Submitted by Arlinda DeAngelis (United States), May 25, 2011 at 10:18

The talented Mr. Obama has a stunning new foreign policy ... Retro Diplomacy. Under this astonishing new and dramatic plan, Israel would return to borders that haven't existed for 55 years, This is not only peace by appeasement, it is retro genius and we shouldn't stop with Israel. How about returning the Shah's family to the throne of Iran, returning Eastern Europe, the Balkans and Georgia to the former Soviet Union and Kenya, of course, goes back to the Brits.

The talented Mr. Obama failed when he bent over forward to the Arab potentates and to the dictator of Iran on his first trip to the Middle East. What else would a talented and experienced diplomat, like Mr. Obama do when he fails going forward? He bends over backwards of course. Chamberlin lives!!!!!!!

The worst part of this is that, when Prime Minister Netanyahu speaks, the world listens .... we listen. He is most compelling. The prime minister makes sense. He is erudite, specific, brilliant and inspiring. He looks like a prime minister and speaks like the great statesman that he is ... from the heart. He brings people to their feet. We watched him on television and we all stood and cheered!!!

Obama, on the other hand, looks like a nervous traveler in need of a meal and speaks like a community organizer in a neighborhood storefront. The only thing that stands during one of his boring double speaks is the teleprompter.

It is obvious that the Prime Minister of Israel loves Israel and the United States. He thanked us for our support and friendship!!!!!! It is obvious that the President dispises both the United States and Israel. Hat in hand, on bended knee for which Obama is supremely gifted, waving the white flag, begging foregiveness, etc the president of the United States is neither presidential nor diplomatic. He's just another lousy politician from Chicago selling snake oil and appeasement on the world stage. Unfortunately, presidents who send mixed messages showing signs of weakness (i.e. JFK when he met Kruschev) can mislead our foes into thinking they can strike at will ... like bringing nuclear missiles into Cuba or Venezuela forcing America to back away from our staunchest and most reliable ally, Israel.

Obama is running here, there and everywhere selling his 20th Century retro diplomacy from Dublin to Moscow. The Iranian reactors are spinning, Putin is selling Uranium and Chevez is waiting for the launchers and the missiles. Obama is ..... unaware and elsewhere.
