Obama Call for 'International Order' Raises Questions About U.S. Sovereignty
Foxnews ^ | May 24, 2010 | Foxnews.com

President Obama is facing criticism for his declaration over the weekend that he would seek a new "international order," with some questioning how much U.S. sovereignty the administration is willing to cede in exchange for more global cooperation.

Obama, delivering the commencement speech Saturday at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, said that "stronger international standards and institutions" and stronger alliances can "resolve" challenges ranging from terrorism to nuclear proliferation to climate change to economic decline.

"Our adversaries would like to see America sap its strength by overextending our power," Obama said. "So we have to shape an international order that can meet the challenges of our generation."

Idiot. “International Cooperation” means letting grubby little countries and socialist/communist governments have a hand in dictating what average Americans can do within their own country.

“International Order” = New World Order. They aren’t even smart enough to come up with a new name. The American people will never allow him to give this country over to the likes of the UN.

the equal opportunity community organizer/president doesn't know any more about world politics than he does about economics. This doofus will do more damage to this country in 4 years than any president in history.

Refraining from stupidity like this is one of the reasons the POTUS is supposed to be a Natural Born Citizen.

And they absolutely love to see Zero's ROI, soldiers patrolling without bullets, and doing nothing about the Iranian buildup in the Horn of Africa and Persian Gulf.

The question is not about "US sovereignty", because the government at Washington is not the sovereign.

The People of the United States are the sovereign. The government created under the US Constitution has NO POWER to negotiate over, dilute, or even to compromise our sovereignty.

“Obama Call for ‘International Order’ Raises Questions About U.S. Sovereignty”

The question of U.S. sovereignty is well settled. The only question is whether the bammer knows what is is or intends to respect it.

IMO, Zero's position in the NWO is that of "The Equalizer". His job is to bring America down to the same level as Third World countries. Eliminate borders, suppress and eventually discard the U.S. Constitution, gut the military and use his "community" (union/Commie) organizing skills to finish us off. Then comes the scramble as the dictators of each "country" fight over who gets to be the one final leader of the NWO.

With a whole planet full of very crafty, capable, and often very hostile people out there, whoever is really running the show wouldn't want to be a high profile target.

I'm sure they would let him 'live large' as a diversion for however long as that lasted...

I said that last year and got laughed at. Only he has an ego big enough to think he can do that, let’s hope. Something also tells me that there will be a huge problem that will lead him to want to cancel elections in 2012.

The only question that needs to be answered about this anti-American clown playing President is will he be impeached or will we have to wait to vote him out.

The left is very scared about elections in November because it’s becoming obvious that even the “moderates” are getting the message, we need to get rid of Obama.

Then how do you explain him being President at all?

This idiot grew up singing “The Internationale” every night before going to bed. What else do you expect from a third generation Marxist?

They believed in him but now he’s showing his real colors. They will turn on him just as fast.

Lately he only speaks to “captive audiences”. I don’t think West Point signed on to become part of an International Order. I would have liked to have seen West Pointers pelt him with rotten tomatoes.
