Barack at the UN: Was this Obama’s most naïve speech ever?
telegraph.co.uk ^ | September 23, 2009 | Nile Gardiner

Posted on 09/23/2009 11:39:30 AM PDT by Lou Budvis

It’s always a bad sign when a US president gets several rounds of heavy applause at the UN General Assembly, as Barack Obama did this morning in New York. Needless to say, the loudest cheers from the gathering of world leaders came when he condemned the actions of a close US ally, Israel, in continuing to build settlements in the West Bank. You can always rely on attacks on the Israelis to generate the biggest roars of approval at any meeting of the United Nations, and Obama dutifully obliged.

Not naive at all. He said exactly what he meant.

Obama is such a narcissist that applause from the left-wing scum at the U.N. means more to him than the security of the U.S.

From the comments:

Obama isn’t naive, he’s a madman. This is the Jim Jones presidency.

Apparently Obama said the words in my tagline during this incredible speech, which packed in more dangerous inanity into its short length than Gadaffi Duck managed in 100 minutes.

How many innocent people will die, because of Barry’s marxism, his naive way of looking at the world? We will be very fortunate if we do not have a major “man made disaster” before Jan.20, 2013.

Weakest president since Carter.

I’m thinking he makes Carter look good... of course, Carter is the one responsible for the current situation in Iran and the ME as a whole... so it’s going to be a toss-up.

Most naive? Maybe. They all look equally naive once you pass a certain level naivety. It seems to me that most everything Obama does is naive, unprofessional and boorish.

Announcing the missile thing on the anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Poland. Giving the Queen an iPod with his speeches on it. Giving the British PM a set of DVDs that he can not even play his British DVD player. Apologizing for America in foreign countries. It just goes on and on.

Spot on, Nile. Obozo was an embarrassment and presented himslf as a shame to the US. Even his wife dressed like a cheap tart and appeared looped.

He digusts and repulses me.

Nile rocks.

Was this though Obama’s most naïve speech ever? It is a very strong candidate, but I think there is intense competition for that accolade. The president’s speeches in Cairo, Strasbourg and Prague would all vie for that title. Still, his address today will go down in history as one of the weakest major addresses by a US president on foreign policy in a generation, by a leader who seems embarrassed, even ashamed, by the power and greatness of his own country.

This was an exceedingly dull, poor speech that overwhelmingly failed to advance US interests on the world stage.

Well, the left has killed about 120 million in the last 100 years or so...so I'm guessing there will be a lot more...

Such a predictable speech. Obama gets up in front of one of the larger gatherings of anti-semites in the world and says “The Jews did it”.

Getting better. I have the TeleSur feed going to keep track of Honduras and they just reported that Noam Chomsky has applauded and praised Obama’s speech as the answer to his generation’s prayers! Final, remaining doubt that BO is a communist is now gone.

Was this Obama’s most naïve speech ever?

Nope, he is trying to start a war in the Middle East to (1)Make an excuse for pulling all our troops out. (2) Distract people at home from the failures of his healthcare, economic, energy, and environmental policies. This speech went a long way towards backing Israel into a corner from which they will either have to strike out in the next few months or be exterminated under a rain of Iranian nukes.

Kadafi today

In fact, he appreciates it so much that he urged the rest of the world to give America a break and move the United Nations elsewhere, such as Beijing or New Delhi.

“I don’t think there will be any objection to that,” he said, noting the expense of security.

“This place is a target,” Kadafi said. “Perhaps America will be targeted by a rocket. We want to relieve America of this worry.”

Therein lies the truth....
Naive? or calculated for subtle impact?
I think Obama is a sociopath who dares us to stop his reign of destruction. Try pointing out a fatal flaw and be mocked (teabaggers) or destroyed (racists).
Already 9 months into his administration and I don’t recognize this country.
This is no longer the “United” States of America.

Guilty.

US President Barack Obama speaks during the United Nations General Assembly at UN headquarters in New York. Obama sent a clear message to the world on Wednesday: he is looking for payback for his swift action in ending an era of swaggering US unilateralism. (AFP/Stan Honda)
