Posted on 09/22/2009 8:14:47 PM PDT by Abakumov
Then there is the catalogue of Mr. Obama's embarrassing moments on the world stage, a list which includes: giving England's Queen Elizabeth II an iPod with his speeches on it; giving British Prime Minister Gordon Brown a collection of DVDs that were not formatted to the European standard (by contrast, Mr. Brown gave Mr. Obama an ornamental desk-pen holder made from the oak timbers of Victorian anti-slaver HMS Gannet, among other historically significant gifts); calling "Austrian" a language; bowing to the Saudi king; releasing a photo of a conference call with Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in which the president was showing the soles of his shoes to the camera (an Arab insult); saying "let me be absolutely clear. Israel is a strong friend of Israel's"; saying the United States was "one of the largest Muslim countries in the world"; suggesting Arabic translators be shifted from Iraq to Afghanistan where Arabic is not a native language; sending a letter to French President Jacques Chirac when Nicolas Sarkozy was the president of France; holding a town-hall meeting in France and not calling on a single French citizen; and referring to "Cinco de Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when he meant Cinco de Mayo. Also of note was Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton giving Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov a "reset" button with the Russian word for "overcharge."

Only 40 more to go!
Worse than Carter. Imagine that.
This Creature of Hell has no words to adequately describe
Wow. And we haven’t even mentioned Joe yet.
I don’t think Obama has a foreign policy. Or maybe there is. The only things he’s done consistently so far are apologize for America and defend dictators. If that’s a policy, he’s got one.
They forgot Zero’s quote about the “Austrian” language.
“Austrian” is in there. It’s just such a huge list.
You can’t write this stuff. It would be funny if it weren’t so sad.
The difference between Groucho Marx as President of Freedonia and Obama is that Groucho meant to be funny.
“... calling “Austrian” a language;...”
He does not have one that he can admit to.
Ohhh...it's in there.
Hey, my fellow Americans...what can we expect from a neophyte? Even Biden knew the BO would be tested before the year was out. Test they did and test they will continue because they know this puppy only has his "milk-teeth"!
That wasn't Obama. That was the deck officer in charge at the moment who made the decision to fire on the Pirates, because of the imminent danger to the Captain of the Maersk vessel being held as hostage. It was the deck officers call, not Obama’s.
OK good. Obama could be cast in “Dumb and Dumber” and write his own lines.
Possibly he was thinking of the famous Siete de Nueve. I know I remember her fondly. Even if she was unintentionally involved in Obama's rise.
I am certain the shoe picture was on purpose
Thanks. I read it again and they missed the one about Hirohito surrendering on the deck of the USS Missouri.
Such a long list-—and growing!
That’s right, the Hirohito one! Classic.
Scare Force One Flyover!
Thank you bump!
Scare Force One! I STILL want to know who was on the plane that day. Oh, when I was in D.C. for the 9/12 March happened by the White House. So my sister and I went up to all the vendors asking “Do you have t-shirts that say Scare Force One? You Lie? 57 States? etc. etc. Then we turned all the shirts with dear leader’s face backwards. It was fun.
With all the listed above foreign policy events, I can’t believe that he is that ignorant. There seems to be a pattern. Guess that’s what we get with a completely unknown candidate who got elected by the press.
Obama is up to the task, as usual.
