As a transracial, transnational Gandhi-like figure, Obama believes that he alone understands and empathizes with the previously demonized Third-World revolutionary leaders.
Yes, on our behalf it is his destiny to talk with them, and tame them in a manner of speaking, perhaps to stop their terrorizing, drug-running, arming, and bullying, or more likely the overt manifestation of all that. In other words, hes our Che, a universal pop star, part Bono, part Mandela, part Michael Jackson, and part Al Gore that deflects criticism that we are all Texas oil men with twangs who talk about Gawd, Eye-Rack, and Jasus.
This metamorphosis is to be accomplished by Obamas singular charisma and empathy: as a person of color, on his paternal side from a Muslim family, and of African heritage, Obama knows that he too has been on the butt-end of Western hegemony (forget the subsidized ride to prep school, Occidental, Columbia, Harvard, the mansion, etc.; we are talking of perceptions, not reality), and thus can assure an Ahmadinejad he feels what it is like to be an Iranian leader with all sorts of globalized and Western-inspired pressures.

ROBBIN’ N DA HOOD! ;)
Yes, it is more and more evident that Mr.Obama has no brain at all, however, he is the broken clock that shows the right time now.
I read it as dripping with sarcasm and pointedly mocking the over-the-top accolades that our servile syncophant presstitutes heap upon him.
I was suggesting he is raiding the people of the US of A for the benefit of “mankind”
Sadly, I believe you're right.
