Skip to comments.Obama: Odd Man Out in Economic Summit!

Our allies are moving to cut spending and debt at the same time Obama urges them to party on!
President Barack Obama, right, stands beside French President Nicolas Sarkozy and other G8 Leaders during a family photo with African Outreach Leaders during the G8 Summit at the Deerhurst Resort in Hunstville, Ontario, Canada, Friday, June 25, 2010.
With U.S. Gross Domestic Product being revised significantly downward and our high unemployment rate well above that of our nearest neighbor Canada, you would think Obama might listen to how our friends and allies are responding to the global economic crisis. But it seems that just as he endlessly lectures Americans, he is in Toronto lecturing our friends on a subject where it might be better if he said nothing and listened.
The New American puts it so well:
Obama Odd Man Out at Summit
by Bruce Walker
Friday, 25 June 2010
Barack Obama arrived on Friday in Toronto for the G-8 and G-20 economic summits. This summit comes amid an unprecedented explosion of red ink in America from an approach to sluggish economies that Obama is recommending to other industrial nations.
Other nations, notably Germany, Japan, Britain, and France, intend to move in the other direction, reducing their government deficits by reducing expenditures. Two years ago the leaders of these nations supported pump priming as a solution to the financial crisis caused by the collapse of Lehman Brothers, a giant American investment bank. Now these leaders believe that more government spending will make things worse.

Gotta enrich my backers, first!
Depressing. But I guess Bambi is getting his Third World African creds in, so he’s happy.
Could have stopped there.
Who needs credit limits if spending money you don't have is good economics?
He’s in his own world, isn’t he? Smiling away! Dolt!
Look at the body language there!!
stuck out all alone on the end- no one even next to him
there does not seem to be a ‘most powerful man’ in the group - it appears they have all grouped together to avoid talking to him
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let one of these people be quoted calling him an ignorant dumbass
If he really wants turd world african cred, why doesn’t he demand that they bail US out?
As pop stars go, Obamao has popped, and world leaders don’t want to be around the mess.
He’s just ODD. Lets leave it at that.
I love how the others are talking and laughing, but Obama is alone, searching the crowd for his adoring fans.
Utter rubbish. Fanciful historical pretend-revisionism. Lehman was in trouble due to the financial crisis; Lehman didn't *cause* the crisis.
He has cooties.
“Obama is recommending to other industrial nations?”....
What a farce!....The world cuts back and the clown ass charges on!
Nobody wants to stand around and hold your hand while you piss in a fusebox.
President Nicolas Sarkozy warned Obama might be insane. I think he’s right.
Notice the distance between the two and other world leaders laughing at him.
Very telling photo from this angle. Would be interesting to see the group photographed from the other side.
‘Cause he’s not exactly ‘out’.
