Iíve refrained from commenting on President Obamaís address to the United Nations General Assembly because the speech made me angry.

But this address grows more disturbing on further reading. Some major presidential speeches deserve to be remembered, quoted and celebrated. Some deserve to be forgotten. A few deserve to be remembered and criticized, because they dishonor the history of presidential rhetoric.

He believes his own press clippings.

And have you seen his look when challenged or booed?

Members of the United Nations peacekeeping forces in southern Sudan are facing

“I serve as a blank screen,” he wrote in The Audacity of Hope, “on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views.”

One sick dude...and it still seems much of America still sees him as the Messiah. How people can buy his shtick is beyond me. 2012 may be an ugly, ugly year.

Reading the comments at the article, it seems the “blame America” crowd is alive and well and adoring Zero!

We are only 8 months in the Obama Presidency.

I can't handle another month of this much less 40.

He's toast.

Young people are finding out now that they will be REQUIRED to buy health insurance, and will be fined and jailed if they don't. A significant voting block for the libs-big blunder.

Obama claims that he knows nothing of Acorn-most damning that he claims to be unaware that they were receiving government funding! Incompetent.

Attacks were planned for 9-11 in New York-instinctively people will see that once again, WEAKNESS is what invites our enemies to attack. People are beginning to feel duped.

The most significant blunder is that he is addressing health care when the issue most people are much more concerned with is the economy, and he hasn't succeeded in linking the two issues, perhaps because they AREN'T linked.

“Obama is one sick dude!!!”

And so is the media that supports him, especially NBC.

“America has too often been selective in its promotion of democracy”


So, Obama’s solution to this (perceived) failing is NOT to promote democracy. Witness his failure to support the Iranian election demonstrators, proping up the morally bankrupt PA or rallying to the cause of that Chavez-wannabe thug Zayala.

I heard on my local radio station that out of 41 speeches, Obama used the words “I” and “ME” 1200 times. This does not include speeches he has made this week or his appearances on Letterman, etc.

Not the way he is having that voting block replenished by the singing children in lower grades. I have seen too many of the videos. A bumper crop will be ready in 2012, and they will think its their duty to give to the state for this worthy cause. It will come right out of their paychecks, just like SS and FICA. They will never know what hit them and the will go along to get along just like everyone else did when SS started coming out of their paychecks. Go along to get along..........
