Indian diplomats close to Singh say the lackluster results show how far the relationship has fallen since Bill Clinton and the two Bushes transformed a strained Cold War rivalry into a close strategic partnership between the world's largest democracies. Obama's predecessors built a relationship around trade negotiations, joint military exercises, and ad hoc coalitions for humanitarian assistance in the aftermath of the Indonesia tsunami. Despite his reputation for uniquely pushy diplomacy, it was George W. Bush who concluded the landmark deal that recognized India as a legitimate nuclear power and opened the door to the sale of civilian nuclear technology to India. No single American move has done more to demonstrate Washington's respect for New Delhi as a rising and equal power. Now Obama, who came to office promising to respect U.S. allies, is backpedaling on that deal, to the growing chagrin of the Indians.

You mean Coddle Our Enemies and Flip Off Our Friends ISN’T a good foreign policy strategy?
Obama is a radical Muslim
that’s all that India should need to know.......
Ever notice how much the rest of the free world hates America now that we have this dildo sitting in the Oval Office?
Is India Muslim? No.
Is Obama Muslim?
“...annoyed by Obama”?
What a concept!
Ya, the liberals said that we lost the respect of the world because of Bush. America would be liked and respected now that the Bush era was over. So we were told.
The liberals should be held to account for the results of their policies. From the war on poverty, to the bloodbath after the war in Vietnam, to the exponentially higher costs of entitlement programs than the liberals of the day predicted, the liberals are seldom right about what will happen when we follow their policies.
Once India was a darling of the Left during the Nehru-Ghandi dynasty with the Nehru suits, socialism, and leading the so-called Non-aligned nations. I wonder what India did? The fact that it embraced market reforms? It acts like a mature country instead of espousing the fashionable cause of the day.
Actually, 13% of India is Muslim. A pretty big percentage.
Hello India. Join the Club, the UK and Israel have a seat waiting for you.
I think even China is getting a little peeved by all this debt spending.
I think the dirty little secret is that the rest of the world isn’t very thrilled about America giving up its roll as the leader of the free world in order to become just another dirty little banana republic with a corrupt government. The world has enough of those already.
He won’t associate with any nation that has an Anglo history.
Sorry, but ...
Muslim = Hate India.
Not only that, but when America goes down, they do too...
America made the machine, harnessed the machine and America will keep it going in spite of some asshole bureaucrat in the WH.
America knows it needs to be healthy and economically sound.
AND the world needs a healthy US of A. The only real detractors are the muslim street voice. They are jealous for the quality of life that America has developed... something that Obama is seeking to destroy.
Didn’t he wait weeks to respond to India’s PM’s congratulations. It was huge story in India. A snub.
We have a Muslim in our (formerly) Holy Place (at lease I wish it were holy....the Whitehouse.)
Why do people spread this trash. How left wing does Obama have to go, before he convinces you he's a leftwinger not a Muslim?
Huh? I heard about KFC giving up its roll; otherwise I agree with your analysis.
Choosing Pakistan over INdia is a really BAD idea.
LOL!!! Ooops! Good catch on the “roll” there!!! Thanks!
so let’s count:
Israel UK India Czech Rep. Poland ...
Welcome to the club.
0bama has managed to annoy every single American ally, including Israel, Poland, Britain, Australia and everyone else. The only countries he's done everything to suck up to are US enemies like Venezuela, Iran, the Palestinians, the Taliban etc etc. It's all part of the Kenyan Marxist's diabolical master-plan to destroy America and everything America stands for.
Obama is naively uninformed and incompetent on the world stage....and everyone who knows anything about international statecraft, friend and foe alike, sees it. He panders to his foes, and estranges our allies on a daily basis.
Didn’t Obama always in college live with
MALE PAKISTANI MUSLIM ROOMMATES ???
what does that tell you?
Take a guess ...
He’s BOTH...... I never said he is consistent or coherent
You can’t explain O’s hostility to India merely by calling him a “leftwinger” when India has been a darling of socialists and the “non-aligned” movement for decades
I don’t believe O is any kind of devout Muslim of course —— it’s more of a vague “Third World” sentimental attachment formed in his youth and mediated by his socialist politics
that’s why I said “radical Muslim”
p.s. you don’t have to go around being so obnoxious to fellow FReepers who did not insult you...... but I ignored your “trash” comment since it was not any contribution to rational discussion on FR.
That does seem odd.
You got it.
Everything Obama does has to be viewed in terms of how it aids Islamic interests.
That is always his overriding concern.
You can always count on Barack Obama. If there is anything that he can do to damage or diminish America he will do it.
Sucking up to our enemies and alienating our allies is just the way he does business. It is an instinctive thing.
Yeah, I thought the world was going to love us again once dildo became president. Whats up with that? I want to be loved, I like to be loved. LOVE ME WORLD!!! :-)
Don’t forget Brazil http://www.cnsnews.com/public/content/article.aspx?RsrcID=44987
India is the most populous democracy on the planet.
Hussein has pissed in their face from day One. he is an idiot.
I knew about it, TQC. I was talking about it too.
Hell, I think INDIA was the first nation Hussein pissed off....he is truly, truly an IDIOT of the First Degree.
Gee, why would The Great Genius snub India like he’s snubbed Britain and a host of other loyal allies? Just a mystery isn’t it? Could it be He Who Has Come To Save The Planet is in way over his head? But I remember news stories right after President Teleprompter was elected of how overjoyed Indians were that America had elected “a person of color” instead of another detestable white male. The moral of the story for all these foreigners: be careful what you wish for, you just might get it. And with Obama you’ll be getting it in the back. A knife that is.
A dildo is useful, our president is not.
Who isn’t annoyed by Obama?
India should have known what to expect with a rakshasha in the White House.
I’m not sure Obama is any more Muslim than Bush is.
