Skip to comments.Obama’s ‘proud’ statements on changing US image may backfire
Posted on 09/15/2012 8:11:21 AM PDT by yoe
President Obama has said that elevating the image of the United States around the world was one of his proudest foreign policy accomplishments, but those remarks could boomerang and hamper his reelection bid.
The violence and anti-American protests throughout the Middle East are bringing fresh attacks on the presidents foreign policies as Muslim rage is intensifying in the region.
The protests that have spread could undercut one of the key tenants of Obama's foreign policy argument that he has restored the U.S. image in the Middle East.
In February, Obama said, One of the proudest things of my three years in office is helping to restore a sense of respect for America around the world, a belief that we are not just defined by the size of our military.
Three years ago in Cairo, Obama stressed his leadership would be dramatically different than former President George W. Bushs: I have come here to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world; one based upon mutual interest and mutual respect; and one based upon the truth that America and Islam are not exclusive, and need not be in competition.
Where’s Romney on this? Take those quotes with recent clips and create an ad. Hit this guy hard and keep punching....I want to hear what MITT would do, what’s his policy?
Proof positive and unlikely to ever be equaled in our lifetime (one hopes) that Barack Hussein Xerxes Elagabolus Obama is an inferior man to Jimmy the Rabbit Slayer Carter. The Rabbit Slayer only lost one embassy. What is the tally now for lost embassies under the Lightworker as CinC, and Hillary Rodham-Abedin as Secretary of State?
The man is far from delusional.
I see the issue from a different perspective.
Why doesnt someone just say he plays for the other side?
Or better yet, he already knows exactly what is in the tube?
This arab spring thing is just one of Obamas orchestrated, choreographed and conducted projects in building and consolidating his North African caliphate. Being muslim, he knows exactly what he is doing, and at Americas expense. As a result , we have a Ghazi operating in our White House.
Too many people are blind to this.
Strategically, his goal was to encapsulate Israel. Soon they will take a run at it and if they find it easy going, then they will take another run at America.
Worst part? Obama has a penchant for dictators and rulers and the alien/muslim feels the same should be for America. It will be a bitch prying his ass from the White House. I believe he will attempt to hang on to power at any cost.
Obamas strategy is not pro American, rather the exact opposite/
The ObamaBots in the msm are frantically bailing out the sinking Obama canoe. Only the far Left, the pathetic welfare class and university idiots won’t admit that it is a fruitless venture. Sane voters will vote this Maximum Failure out of office.
How many frigging times I remember hearing that claptrap back in 2009!
Doopy libs never understood the time-tested idea of “peace through strength” or “trust, but verify”.
Nah, just grovel and act weak and think that those freaks “hate us” because we are just bullies and they were just innocent ethnics minding their own business until whitey showed up.
Obama meant to say, “We are gay, and we want to play.” That is how he wants to change our image in the world. He is ready to pay to service Muslims everywhere.
Maybe turn in his Peace Medal....and the half a mil that went with it since it looks like he threw “we the people” over the fence.
I just read this post, and was just going to post the very same suggestion, but you beat me to the punch:
Start off with a clip of Obama saying he is going to make the world “like” us again, and fade into the images of the middle east burning while Obama’s words drone on.
Even the stupidest among us should be able to “get” the picture/message on this one.
Question is, will Mitt and his team be brave enough to do it, or will some PAC take up the challenge?!?!?

No and yes respectively.
Zero is a narcissist.
Just like the so-called prophet and his followers
From “Understanding Muhammad;A Psycobiography”
“Muhammad was an orphan. Spurned by his mother in his infancy and left in the care of a Bedouin couple, he had a loveless childhood. He then passed to the care of his grandfather and uncle who took pity on him and spoiled him. Not receiving love at a time he needed unconditional love and not receiving discipline when he needed to learn about boundaries, he developed narcissistic personality disorder, a trait that made him a megalomaniac bereft of conscience. He fantasized about unlimited power, expected praise and admiration, believed he was special, and expected others to believe him and go along with his ideas and plans. He took advantage of others, was jealous, yet believed others were jealous of him, and was extremely hurt when rejected, even killing those who deserted him. He lied and deceived, feeling entitled and justified in doing so. All these are traits of narcissistic personality disorder.”
More at the following link:
Islam is a narcissist religion.
Narcissists will dish out all kinds of abuse and then blame the victim.
It is the perfect religion for psychopaths because it excuses any atrocity. All its followers have to say is that it was done in the name of Islam.
Here is another clue of what's on Obama's agenda.
Tenants? Tenants may have keys, but I doubt the tenants ARE "key."
I think you mean "tenets."
An amazing resemblance in upbringing....thanks for the link.
If Romney doesn't do it, than one of the PACs should.
