Skip to comments.Obama tells the U.N. how great he is

President Obama's administration recently submitted a report to the United Nations on human rights in America. The 29-page report shows the nation badly flawed but fortunate to have a Nobel Prize winner as its leader. The report is billed as "a partial snapshot of the current human rights situation in the United States, including some of the areas where problems persist in our society." Among the nation's shortcomings listed in the report:
» Arizona has dared to try to enforce immigration laws that the federal government will not. But don't worry, Obama is suing them.
» We incarcerate dangerous terrorists at a military prison in Guantanamo Bay. But don't worry -- Obama has signed three executive orders to protect them from the last administration's rough handling and he "remains committed to closure of the Guantanamo detention facility."
» It's too hard to form a union, the document says -- either that or unions have just become less relevant. But don't worry, "there are several bills in our Congress that seek to strengthen workers' rights" -- bills like "card check," which will help institutionalize union intimidation and coercion by taking away a worker's right to a secret ballot.
The report also notes that as bad as our human rights situation is, help is on the way -- all thanks to Obama:
» America made "great strides" in human rights when "President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law." That's better known as Obamacare, the law that 60 percent of us want repealed.
» Obama is trying to repeal "Don't ask, don't tell" in the Department of Defense and the Defense of Marriage Act, which protects states' right to define marriage legislatively.
» The report mentions that in recent months, "the Department of Justice has worked to strengthen enforcement of federal voting rights laws." (So, just pretend, at least for a moment, that the New Black Panther case never happened.)
You get the picture: This is a self-serving political document that portrays Obama policies as great leaps forward, and things he opposes as steps backward. In the Bush years, America ignored the UN High Commission on Human Rights because the panel too often gave voice and sometimes positions of leadership to such human rights beacons as Cuba and China. Now, under Obama, our government is producing propaganda for world consumption at the expense of the American people. In other words, Obama has not merely joined Cuba and China on the commission, he is imitating their leaders' tactics, too.
Welcome to Banana Republic
Damn Muslims and former governors from Arkansas sure are a bunch of narcissistic bass turds.
DemonRatz in general.....
They project false competence in a man who is an enemy of the country as he wants to allow his Sec State, fellow Marxist scum Hillary Clinton, to include a human rights violation in the report...that violation being Arizona law that mirrors our federal law that obama and all liberal’s REFUSE to enforce.
Glenn Back apologised for Calling Obama a racist and suggesting that he was a danger to America.
WTH is wrong with beck. He had Obama nailed to a T and then apologised?????? Crazy
Obama IS a racist and a danger to America.
Empty; empty man. That he is President is almost surreal.
Whew, I am plum tuckered out. Let's go golfin' or sumfin and then we'll get some lobster n' ice cream. Hold that mirror up a little higher, will ya?
It sounds like he wants a promotion. It sounds like he is talking to his boss about his slovenly subordinates. Other FReepers have said that he wants to ‘rule the world’ with a UN position. At first I didn’t think so but back then, the UN might have actually gone for it. But how could the UN ‘hire’ him once he’s out of office after watching him mangle the US economy so quickly. He may have gotten overtures from UN types when he first went on the ‘apology tour’. As things heat up back home, he may want to slither back to his UN hopes but that would kind of mean that he doesn’t realize that even the UN wouldn’t want him in a position of authority. They could may him VIP lapdog though. He’s actually qualified for that.
Perfect encapsulation of the boy-man!
NOTUS = Narcissist of the United States.
it is like a trial, you object even though you are overruled because the jury heard it.
these people that say this stuff and then come out and apologize know that it makes an impact. imho
