Obama's Debut on World Stage Yields Mixed Results
FOXNEWS ^ | April 04, 2009 | FOXNEWS

Obama failed to get European leaders to commit to U.S.-style stimulus packages or to get NATO allies to send more combat troops to Afghanistan.

But he prevented French President Nicolas Sarkozy from walking out of the G20 summit, as he threatened to do earlier.

He also helped persuade China to agree to publish lists of tax havens, and got NATO allies to agree to sending up to 5,000 more military trainers and police to Afghanistan.

YEp, now that it is obvious Øbama has made the US economy worse, which also effects the world economy, his European Socialist fans are having trouble seeing where the free benefits are going to materialize from the 'World Citizen'

What exactly did Barack Obama do to prevent the walk-out? Is this a "get credit for being in the same room as a decision" moment?

Ah yes, promises from the Chinese.

A weak America threatens the well being of the asians and the eurotrash.

Doubtful the messiah gets it!

“This effort cannot be America's alone,” added Obama, who is working hard to prevent the anti-terror mission from being viewed as a U.S. war and, by extension, his”.
Of course he recognizes the difficulty of winding up the “war on terror” in one place, which was George Bush's fault, by the way, because he was effectively prevented from surrendering to the terrorists in Iraq. He will, however, make a deal with the Taliban.
So far, I'm having a hard time finding anyone that has exaggerated the threat to America that Obama poses. He must be stopped, now.

The thing about these narcassists is that they have an underlying insecurity and build up such an effective defense in their own minds against any criticism that they are blind to their own hypocricy and always blame other people for things. Nothing is ever their fault. When you add sociopathology to the equation you’ve got a very dangerous person on your hands. It’s one thing to have one in your family, it’s a whole ‘nother thing to have one as “the leader of the free world”. A psuedo title i’m sure BO is very pleased with. He’s delusional too come to think of it if he really believes he’s the leader of the free world. Which he surely does.

One thing he did was prove to all of us that have been saying he was a closet Muslim was to boy to the Saudi King but not to the Queen of England. American Presidents do not bow to any foreign ruler but he did to a Muslim which was telling. Just like Rev Wright’s Church is a safe haven for Muslims to show they are Christian for business purposes or whatever else they need. Larges number of “former” Muslims attend his Church. I used the term “former” loosely!

Agreed. When I read Obama failed to get European leaders to commit to U.S.-style stimulus packages or to get NATO allies to send more combat troops to Afghanistan. the first thing I thought was, "Other than that, the trip was a complete success."
