"Obama Delivers Only Hot Air" (ASIA TIME) (Messiah's Epic Fail in Asia)
The Asia Times ^ | 15 November 2010 | Donald Kirk

Obama delivers only hot air By Donald Kirk

SEOUL – Theodore Roosevelt, a great American president with a clearly imperialist agenda, uttered one of the most famous lines in US history in 1901 when he advised a crowd, "Speak softly and carry a big stick". These days, US President Barack Obama seems to have gotten that aphorism reversed. He speaks a lot but doesn't seem to be carrying a big stick.

That was the impression he gave after winding up his 11-day Asian odyssey in Japan at a tepid weekend gathering of Pacific rim leaders banded together in the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation grouping, otherwise known as APEC.

In my opinion that is an oxymoron.

They are doing more than laughing.

They are engaging in dangerous nuclear tests, exports, ICBM launch tests, nuke/chem/bio smugglings, crushing of domestic human rights, risky naval provocations towards our allies who are being abandoned, including sinking Korean craft and bashing Japan Coast Guard cutters, while this a*shole goes back 41 years in his life and mentally masturbates over a macha icecream in Kamakura, Japan escpaping the grown up world that is the Presidency of the United States and Commander in Chief of our Troops, not to mention, carrier of the nuclear codes--his patent weakness in large part emboldening all these enemies of America and our allies in Asia dramatically over the last 22 months..

Heaven help us. This man is a Neville Chamberlain just waiting for some wolf or wolves to emerge on the scene due to his abject weakness, so easily perceived.

Remember back in the day when Obama's left-wing media sycophants told us that one of the biggest benefits of his election was that our standing on the world stage would increase and the world would love us once again?

That turned out to be just as big a joke as every other aspect of his presidency!

We are now in dangerous times as the weakness displayed by our President in foreign policy may be interpreted as weakness by the US on our military prowess.

Watch China, Iran and Korea closely.

Watch out for nukes with ballistic missiles stationed in Caracas.

Watch our embassies ala Jimmy Carter.

And what is this incompetent administration pushing our military to do? Admit gays, PC crap.

God Help us.

Yes.

Obama’s motto appears to be:

“Speak obsequiously and promise never to use your stick.”

...not to mention, carrier of the nuclear codes...

He probably leave those behind when he travels. After all, he's already promised our enemies he'll never use nuclear weapons.

Obummer is like a fart. A lot of air expelled but of little use until one takes a dump.

BO goes around telling everyone how old, guilty, horrible and decrepit the US’s stick is and then wonders why no one pays him any attention?

'Obamas'...." patent weakness in large part emboldening all these enemies of America and our allies in Asia dramatically over the last 22 months....Heaven help us.... This man is a Neville Chamberlain just waiting for some wolf or wolves to emerge on the scene due to his abject weakness, so easily perceived.

He has lost all credibility here and abroad. Yet he has two years left to play further havoc. Meanwhile the world stage moves along without fear of anyone interfering in their agendas...it's a scramble for power, resources and positioning for control. Game is on and will grow hot and heavy!

True, but there’s just not enough folks that know other languages. besides, I doubt either post would be deleted. I’ve seen worse in English.
