Obama Shortening Australian Visit to Spend More Time in Indonesia
verunserum ^ | 3/15/10 | Morgen

Posted on 03/15/2010 7:10:18 PM PDT by Nachum

Allies? Who needs allies? From today’s Sydney Morning Herald (emphasis added):

Barack Obama’s trip to Australia is going ahead but his 24-hour visit will be contained to Canberra.

The US President will address Federal Parliament on March 26 after flying from Bali the day before and dining with Prime Minister Kevin Rudd at the Lodge.

Mr Obama’s shortened itinerary – which allows him to spend more time in Indonesia – will include a meeting with Governor-General Quentin Bryce and a range of events to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Australia-US alliance.

Mr Obama was forced to ditch his original plans for a family trip to Australia due to his bid to clinch a historic revamp of America’s healthcare system.

Who woulda thunk it?

Indonesia’s loss will be Australia’s gain.

Are we surprised? Gotta push Sharia finance for Indonesia to the aussies... he has to have the TOTUS programmed. Otherwise, think of it as a Islamo Reserve weekend.

I also think Gates will sneak to meet Mahmood. I say that due to the manufactured rage of Israel building with their borders (even according to the 2000 Abbas standards); They may not like the timing, but screw ‘em, they’re the non-interventionists... remember (only with Venezuela and Islamist countries, unless they intervene FOR them).

Maybe he’ll visit Sumatra-by-the-sea and get a first hand look at Global Shaking:)

May his hair be tossed by a tsunami...

May his feet be massaged by an earthquake...

May everybody else be 2 miles inland:)

He’s just not into you Aussies. He’s not that into Americans either. We all get this.

We, however, think the world of you.

I think people are going to have to come to the realization that this guy just does not represent America or Americans, because he just doesn’t. We have to fix this, and we will.

I have never heard an unkind comment about Australia, although it would be nice if they spoke english. What, oh, they do. Hmmm. Well they are America’s friends.

He’ll be busy because it’s probably covered with bird crap.

He couldn’t make it to mom in time, or help with her doctors bills, even though he made six figures; He couldn’t be bothered to attend his grandmas memorial, (given by friends, but of course he and sis sent flowers and a letter, nevermind she raised him and his other non-participating parents were gone); He couldn’t be bothered to even spread her ashes for two months... but he used her the night before election.

Yet something pulls him to a place he spent four years in as a kid, when he realized what ‘racism’ was.

I remember his first interview as prez to on the Islamo station, when he stated he had lived in muslim countries (plural). I guess there will be no press as he diverts (as he did in ‘80 spring break), to Pakistan again.

Disgusting.

I’m Australian.

Unfortunately, we have a Mandarin-speaking, China-loving Commie as our Prime Minister, so I don’t know how this is going to play itself out.

Of course, he has to spend more time in Indonesia; bowing to all of the mohammedans takes a long time.

You read my mind. Exactly what I was thinking.

Save yourself the grief, Aussies. Just cancel the whole thing.

Great, just insult the only country that fought with us in WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf I, Afghanistan and Gulf II. I cannot imagine an allie that has been more loyal or more willing to send their sons and daughters to the aid of America. For the sake of God if you can’t do right by the Australians who is left.
