Obama Criticizes America During Presser with Malaysian P.M. Via the NYT:
. . .Speaking at a news conference with Prime Minister Najib Razak, Mr. Obama treaded politely into these issues. He said he pressed Mr. Najib during their meeting about Malaysias civil liberties and human rights record, which has come under fresh scrutiny in recent weeks because of the legal travails of an opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim.
The prime minister is the first to acknowledge that Malaysia has still got some work to do on these issues, just like the United States, by the way, has some work to do, Mr. Obama said.
Prime Minister Najib came in as a reformer, and one who is committed to it, and I am going to continue to encourage him as a friend and as a partner to make sure were making progress on that front, he said, as the Malaysian leader looked on gravely.
But Mr. Obama did not meet Mr. Anwar, a former deputy prime minister whose January 2012 acquittal on sodomy charges was thrown out by an appeals court last month, putting his political comeback in jeopardy. Mr. Anwars first trial in 1999, which ended in a conviction and six years in jail, was widely condemned as politically motivated. . .
No, Mr. President: the United States record on human rights is nothing like Malaysia. And way to vote "present" by not meeting Anwar. - Greg Pollowitz
It's like a nervous tic.
They are never satisfied. After the last vestige of racism is eliminated, they would still be screaming about the ‘legacy of racism’ for 200 years afterwards.
Yea, the work is to kick this jive turkey out and become a serious country again.
Donthca know that the electorate would probably approve of a third term for him and if not third a term then a Hillary!
This is like criticizing your own family while you’re socializing with your neighbors. Despicable.
Dumbass illiterate porch-sittin' malt-liquor drinkin' basketball-playin' spoda.
Wouldn’t be surprised if Obama declared no more elections while “we have work to do”.
America-hating IS....as America-hating DOES.
he’s right- look at the way his imperial administration targets conservatives...purposely targeting political adversaries is a human rights violation...
Did Obama answer the follow up question of exactly what Human Rights violations the United States is engaged in?
Oh that’s right, there wasn’t a follow up question.
What this means of course, is clear: the goal of progressivism is totalitarianism, the anthill Reagan warned us about, the dystopia envisioned by authors such as Orwell and Huxley and many others.
It is real, and they are serious. This is what it is all about with these people.

[ The prime minister is the first to acknowledge that Malaysia has still got some work to do on these issues, just like the United States, by the way, has some work to do, Mr. Obama said. ]
Oh and I am sure Indonesia and Kenya and Saudi Arabia are the Paragon of Human rights, right Mr. Resident?????
What a damn Moron we have...
I’ll refrain from posting how I really feel about this dumbass, since I prefer windows without bars.
“Wouldn’t be surprised if Obama declared no more elections...”
It’s absolutely exasperating that Progressives hate Christianity but love the idea that Mr. Obama is the messiah.
(It’s also absolutely amazing that among many of them can be counted Christians, Jews and others who are supposedly people of faith.)
a) Weakens America/AmericansI have yet to have anyone raise a single substantive counter example in several years of posting this.
b) Distances America's allies
c) Strengthens America's enemies
d) Serves Islam
e) Harms Israel
Or some combination of the above.
a), c), d)...
When bashing your country in foreign lands before foreign leaders comes naturally to you, maybe being president is not the best career choice.
