Posted on 09/20/2009 7:18:41 PM PDT by mathprof
President Barack Obama may be regarded as a Communist trying to nationalise health care by his fiercest detractors at home, but other world leaders see him as a conservative, he declared on Sunday.
Asked about the antipathy aroused by his stimulus bill, health reform plans, and takeover of ailing banks, the president revealed that the stinging domestic criticism has bemused other politicians whose politics are ostensibly to the Right of his.
"I can't tell you how many foreign leaders, who are heads of centre-right governments, say to me 'I don't understand why people would call you socialist, in my country you would be considered a conservative'," Mr Obama told CNN.
He refrained from naming names, but his leading centre-Right allies are Stephen Harper, the Canadian prime minister, who visited Washington last week, President Nicolas Sarkozy of France and Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor.
Mr Obama acknowledged that "yelling at politicians is as American as apple pie", but appealed for greater civility in the nation's political discourse. "It's important to remind ourselves we are all Americans who love this country," he said.
In angry scenes at town hall meetings and street protests, Mr Obama has been vilified as a communist, socialist or even a Nazi and a sinister supporter of euthanasia.
Jimmy Carter, the former president, and black Congressmen have said that racism has fuelled the hostility towards the first African American president.
But Mr Obama said the objections were rooted in opposition to "big government", not the colour of his skin, although he was sure that some people "don't like me because of race".

Proof positive. This man is delusional.
Of course he did, because just like most of the verbal diarrhea he spews all over us, these alleged "world leaders" are entirely fictional.
I wouldn’t disagree that a lot of other countries are leftier than the USA. So? Bummer didn’t get elected “president of the world.”
H’es more than delusional, he’s Daft!
No, he is talking about Fidel, Hugo, Mugabe, Putin and the like.
Don’t like him because of race? The fool is half White!
Hey Obama, Hugo is not center right you idiot.
I think when he was smoking pot and snorting coke he also dropped acid.
I believe statements like this prove he is still having residual effects from his drug use.
I’ll name names: Kim Jung Il, Osama bin Laden, Ayatollah Khamani, Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez.
Sorry, but the reportage from abroad is painting you more and more as a naive clown who is in over his head.
Everything with these people is PR, fooling most of the people most of the time, moreover, telling outrageous lies to infidels is sanctioned in mohammedanism, the taquiya.
If he believes half of what he says he’s crazier than a rat in a coffee can.
AND we should all worship him.
I'm sure his 0bama Fedayeen already KNOW this about him.
Hey, Obama has just nationalized nothing more and nothing less than General Motors. Comrade Obama! Fidel, careful or we are going to end up to his right.

“Let’s just make s**t up and SAY it”, thinks America’s President, “Hell, some of the rubes might believe me!”
Big deal. Lenin thought Stalin was a conservative.
Are all of these pots calling the kettle black? Commies and socies recognize Obama for what he is. Comrades, salute the supreme leader.
My comment is based on my feeling that he believes, like the Emperor in regards to his new suit, that what he says is true. There is no doubt in my mind that this man is narcissistic enough to believe his own words.
Stay thirsty, my friends.
Is this his way of justifying his attempt to take this country as left as he possibly can?
I'm not sure that was Lenin's problem with Stalin. Lenin said what he thought about Stalin here.
He’s not delusional. He is a stupid SOB, and a liar, but knows exactly what he is doing.
If true, it proves the rest of the world is f**king nuts. If false, it's yet another in a series of lies.
He is a weak and incompetent leader.
Conservative is just his code word for “weak and incompetent”.
Conservative? They see him as a weak joke. An empty suit that is willing to run away and put impossible rules of engagement on our troops that do nothing but get them killed.
I guess MAYBE Hugo Chavez & Kim Yong Il think that (if you believe anything Pres BIG EARS says). I happen to think Obama is just ARROGANT (like I have never seen before) and INSANE!
Well, compared to the Bath-House Bureaucrats of Western Europe, he may be right. The European Union is a cess pool of girly-men capitulators who think they know what’s best for the serfs.
Obama’s message here is that he’s a wanna-be ‘European.’
in my country you would be considered a conservative’,”
There’s your answer, Barry...
When Van Jones left, your lost your All Socialist standing...
AHHHHHHH, No, ...dont cry.. nobody said you were All American...
You’re anything but that...
You qare just not quite MVP material for Socialism...
You lack that certain something...
Like just one Czar away from All Socialist...
That must make him 1% above sub human!
yea and we are to believe he is conservative when Chavez joked that he and Castro would have to move to the left in order to keep up with him?
I guess if you are comparing all of the evil dictators in the past to the ONE then he might be considered conservative to lets say PolPot or Lenin?
Jesse Jackson had the right idea when he stage whispered that he wished they would whack off his ba###. It certainly takes cajones to spew that one out there.
This is what our leader and Congress think.
USPS New 42-Cent Stamp!!! Celebrates Muslim holiday.
If there is only ONE thing you forward today... let it be this!
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of Pan Am Flight 103!
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993!
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the Marine Barracks in Lebanon !
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the military Barracks in Saudi Arabia !
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the American Embassies in Africa !
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the USS COLE!
REMEMBER the MUSLIM attack on 9/11/2001 !
REMEMBER all the AMERICAN lives that were lost in those vicious MUSLIM attacks!
Now President Obama has directed the United States Postal Service to RE MEMBER and HONOR the EID MUSLIM holiday season with a new commemorative 42 Cent First Class Holiday Postage Stamp..
REMEMBER to adamantly & vocally BOYCOTT this stamp, when you are purchasing your stamps at the post office.
All you have to say is “No thank you, I do not want that Muslim Stamp on my letters!”
To use this stamp would be a slap in the face to all those AMERICANS who died at the hands of those whom this stamp honors.
Pass this along to every Patriotic AMERICAN that you know and let’s get the word out !!!
Here is something to chew on...
They (MUSLIMS) don’t even believe in Christ, & they’re getting their own Christmas stamp! BUT, don’t dare to dream of posting the ten commandments on federal property! This is truly UNBELIEVABLE
BS is right!!!!!!
Barack Obama: world leaders ‘see me as a conservative
Romney better watch out...
He has some serious competition here for the Value Voters straw poll
“I can’t tell you how many foreign leaders, who are heads of centre-right governments, say to me ‘I don’t understand why people would call you socialist, in my country you would be considered a conservative’,” Mr Obama told CNN.
—Well yeah, I guess if youre conversing with Satan, than maybe you might lean a bit Conservative, if a bit..but then Hell is really the only place where Socialism works. Equal pain and eternal torment for everyone.
He’s a nitwit. A vain, blowhard, superficial nitwit... . What have we done to deserve him !?
Now he wants to adopt the term “conservative”? Fine by me. So longs as he adjusts his thinking and actions to suit it. Otherwise...forget it. Can’t steal the term just because it’s more popular. Doesn’t fit and we know it.
Nice picture of Chief Walking Eagle.
