Am I the only conservative who isnít upset about Obamaís speech in Egypt?
LifeInKC.com ^ | 6/4/09 | Chris DeWeese

Posted on 06/04/2009 8:11:45 PM PDT by Chris DeWeese

So for weeks we on the right have been trying to get the folks who voted for Obama to see that they have been played. My conservative friends and I have been posting stories on Obama’s hypocrisy, flip-flops and truth-stretches at a really alarming rate.

But today is different. Today it seems like everyone right of center is completely up in arms about Obama making a speech to the Islamic world from Egypt. Well, everyone but me.

I’m not bothered about the speech primarily because Obama told us he was going to do this if he got elected. It was almost a mantra with Obama, over and over saying he was going to start a dialogue with our adversaries by "reaching out to them". In fact, this may very well be the first time in recent memory where a politician said he was going to “reach out” to people and actually did it!

I’m a little perturbed at the content of his speech, but, again, we really shouldn’t be surprised at the content because…. it’s the same content from his campaign! Obama campaigned on fundamentally changing America. His wife said that once Barack was nominated, she could finally be proud of her country. Well, folks, that meant up until the point that Barack was nominated, she was ashamed of her country! Now Barack gets to go and apologize for all of our past sins. Michelle must just be beaming with pride for her country now. Personally, I’m hoping he gets out of the confessional, knocks it off with the speeches, and maybe spends some time reading. Reading legislation that is – hopefully before he signs any more.

I do agree with the conservative intelligencia on one point. It is really, really annoying that during the campaign Barack just had a silly middle name that we weren't allowed to speak lest we be branded racist and his dad was an agnostic, but now that he has been elected it is hip to have Islamic roots and experiences. (We’ve come too faaaaar is now bouncing around in my head).

However, if he can get a majority of the Muslims to soften up on America, if his trip over there can lessen some tension at the negotiating tables, if his addiction to bringing up the past sins of America can somehow turn the hearts of those people to want to stop killing us, then, well, he will have accomplished precisely nothing.

They all live in dictatorships. It doesn’t matter if the people living over there like us or not, the guys running those countries, you know the ones with the guns, just see a weak leader they can treat like one of their wives. So, what's there to get all worked up about?

Obama's facts were wrong...even when he talked about the Islamic accomplishments. He again apologized for America, making us look weak in the eyes of friends and enemies.

He is trying to placate and cozy up to them all...and they will view that as weakness too.

The problem is this...your last paragraph says it. The leaders will view it as weakness and they will get the idea that the can treat the US just like you talked about...and that will lead to more deaths of US soldiers and civilians, both aborad, and IMHO right here.

In addition, he is creating a very serious and dangerous situation with Israel by not backing up Israel against Iran. Iran has no incentive to slow down (no fear of us). This makes it much more likely that Israel will try and stop them (I would) and that will also lead to a broader war.

You may be. I am disgusted. Everyone else I spoke to was sickened. His praise of all things Islamic and continued inability to identify anything good in American history (other than his election) is absolutely disgusting. He may have said he would do this, but the act is no less a disaster. We will be dealing with the consequences of this day for many years to come.

Sorry Chris, but if you are not upset about his speech, um, perhaps you're not really a conservative.

Granted the speech wasn't surprising, but this whole administration has me upset and it was just more of the same.

For the record, I watched the first two sections of the speech on youtube. Section three of the sequence was missing and I didn’t want to skip to section four. Based on the first two sections of the speech only (about the first 20 minutes), I found the speech to be helpful, positive and nothing to be up in arms about (of course I had to keep telling myself to be objective and to subdue the ‘I hate that smug S.O.B.’ demon inside of me). ...just trying to be honest here.

Chris, you aren’t upset that he honored his promise to the Muslim world but went back on all of these campaign promises to the American people like:

Broken promise No. 1: ‘Sunlight Before Signing’
Broken promise No. 2: Capital gains tax elimination
Broken promise No. 3: New American jobs tax credit
Broken promise No. 4: Hiatus on 401(k) penalties
Broken promise No. 5: ‘No jobs for lobbyists’
Broken promise No. 6: Earmark reform
Broken promise No. 7: Bring troops home in 16 months
Broken promise No. 8: Sign ‘Freedom of Choice Act’
Broken promise No. 9: $4,000 college credit
Broken promise No. 10: Transparency

And on and on...

I am very upset that he cares more about what the world thinks of him than how he can protect the American people.

It’s amazing that Obama would praise Islam for its tolerance of other religion, in Egypt, where Christians are forbidden from holding any government jobs.

Oh, if they send him FOCA, he'll sign that for sure. I hope there are enough senators to stop that murderous piece of legislation.

I have family who can't even watch the news anymore. One day a while back I called my folks. When I mentioned Obama to my mom, she sighed. My dad expressed dismay, and later that day I phoned my sister and she actually swore at the mention of his name.

The JV is running the country. But on the bright site - when he's over there, he ain't signing bills over here!

Three more American military died today in Afghanistan. There has been an increase in IED attacks in Iraq and Israel finds its staunchest ally betraying them daily, favoring their enemies ....and even financing them.

Obama has declared the United State a Muslim country and bows to a Saudi king. He recognizes Iran's pursuit of nuclear technology as a right and denies ours. Gas prices have risen 50 cents a gallon over the past month and the price of a bbl of oil is rising fast. GM is no longer General Motors, Chrysler is Italian and tail pipes will soon be taxed.....as well as air conditioning, home heating, barbecue grills to make way for Green technologies of solar and wind. Well, we already have solar and wind seasonally, taxed when it's beneficial and insured for when it isn't.

Our Feckless Leader continues his jihad domestically daily and internationally occasionally....between date nights and photo ops.

All on our dime.

You do know what “Troll” means, don't you? Jemian has been here since 1998 and is a prolific poster.

She likes to wake you up with a beautiful picture of something to make you feel good.

Most importantly she has a son in Iraq and is a proud mother.

BTW, I hated Barry's speech because he makes us look weak and apologetic for our own existence. He really shouldn't be apologizing for policies that didn't work out for the best. He to will have policies that won't work.

We will have to apologize to the world for electing this moron and putting every ones lives in danger.

So let me get this straight, you ask if you are the only conservative who is not upset over the occupant’s apology 2.2 tour because he is acting like the lib he campaigned as?? & that makes it good because maybe the muslims leaders will make nice?

Basically, he dissed The United States of America and all those who have gone before us to fight for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in his pro-Islam/anti-Israel speech. and someone says, well gee, maybe you are not conservative (wonder why?).

Then you (who have been here for a little over a year) actually call someone who has been here since JAN 1998, which is basically the beginning of time as far as Free Republic is concerned, a troll???!!

I don’t usually talk like this but geez, get a clue, suck it up & take it back if you can’t take criticism, you need to find somewhere else to promote your blog :(

If you post you gotta take the good with the bad and mix it with your learning experience.

All this hiding behind a complaint form is going get you looked over every time you post.

I don't have a problem with your post even if I think you are trying to be controversial without really thinking through the consequences of Barry Sotero’s World Apology Tour and how that weakens our position with other nations and unnecessarily put countless lives in danger.

Chris, post all you want, but if the responses are to confusing for you then don't read them.

NO everyone matters—so perhaps you should be careful before you call ANYONE a TROLL; and yes, esp. a long-time member. You’ve been here since 2004 and you call someone a troll for disagreeing with you when you post a controversial post that by the title you knew would draw controversy?

Sorry, but I think it is in really bad form to call someone a troll just because they disagree with you—you posted something controversial, what did you expect—were you trying to short circuit debate? If not, don’t call them a troll==esp a long-time member for disagreeing with you

—to me, calling someone a troll when they are really just questioning or disagreeing withyour position, is like calling Rush a racist for questioning Sotomayor’s legal postions.

So I really was on opposite end of the spectrum with you—I was totally disturbed by the speech, and I totally disagree with you calling a long time-member a troll, but at least I did not call you a troll nor did I bring a mod into it.

I think you get my drift. It is very dangerous to start attacking folks for merely questioning a position. I often end a post with “we agree to disagree” but I don’t call someone a troll cause they disagree—well not that I can remember.

You are right. It is really bad form. Anyway, after reading some of his posts on his forum, it looks like he is using a digger where there ain't no dirt. He should be looking at this as an educational experience to make his points clearer and his arguments stronger. and about that /s thing. I have been thinking I should post in a different color so it stands out. Maybe red?

That is priceless.  3 masked men in camo with the poor mans rifle, AK47 and then Drudge emblazons below "Peace in the Middle East".
 
As far as the "Digger/Dirt" comment feel free to use it.  It is a Southern saying and being from Oklahoma someone must have told me that one kinda of like "Dumb as a box of rocks"
 
The red /s is created using Microsoft Mail in Vista or Microsoft Express in previous version of Windoze.  Just type it like you would a Word document, change the fonts or whatever else you want to do and go to the "source" tab at the bottom, then copy/paste.  Voila!   You have an HTML editor.
