First, Obama gets a Nobel Peace Prize for nothing; Now, a tae kwan do black belt after 0 kicks
LA Times ^ | Nov. 19, 2009 | Andrew Malcolm

Posted on 11/19/2009 6:17:09 AM PST by Second Amendment First

Democrat president Barack Obama tries some martial arts moves with South Korean president Lee Myung-bak Seoul 11-20-09

Even President Obama himself during his just-concluded trip to Asia admitted that he was surprised to receive the Nobel Peace Prize earlier this year without actually producing any peace.

In fact, the rookie American president ordered his own troop surge, boosting U.S. troops fighting in Afghanistan to 68,000. Now, the Democrat may be preparing to send more again. And a Gallup Poll showed 61% of Americans didn't think he deserved it either.

Anyway, there he was in Seoul, South Korea on the last stop of his journey.

And out of the Seoul sky, President Lee Myung-bak hands over to the American leader a tae kwan do outfit. And then Lee, who practices tae kwan do himself, presents Obama with a coveted black belt.

After 0 long years of study.

What would Chuck Norris do? Probably bow. But never as low as Obama bowed for Japan's Emperor last weekend in Tokyo.

They gave him a black belt? I’m more PO’d about that than the Nobel!

It makes mine worth less, indeed.

Great punch.

You just broke your 4th metacarpal and/or sprained your wrist.

Of course, this assumes you have enough power to actually break a bone in your hand.

This jackass is an embarrassment to himself, but he’s so in love with himself that he can’t tell when he should be ashamed.

My son and I studied Tae Kwon Do for three years, working our way up to Bo-Black Belt...but we earned them.

This is pure BS. The pathetic thing is that "Ears" probably thinks this means something!

After 25+ years in the combat/martial arts, I wouldn’t mind stepping into the ring with this “black belt.”

This is pretty fun though.

We now have at least two obvious cases of 0bama getting some award or achievement for no effort or merit on his part.

It puts people in the mindset of “what else has he gained that he didn’t earn?”

You don’t turn the Queen Mary of public opinion on a dime, and little nudges like this actually HELP.

Actually first he got into a ivy league college without the grades, then he was given passing grades when he deserved to fail, then he was given a diploma when he should of been thrown out on his cocaine crack head butt, then he was let into law school when his application should of been laughed at, then he was placed on law review because of his skin color, then he was given a law degree out of pity, then he couldn't find a job and became a community organizer, then he won election to the house because his opponent dropped out of the race, then he was basically given a senate seat, and then he was elected president because many whites suffer from white guilt, then he was given the Nobel peace prize for nothing, and THEN he was given a black belt for helping to destroy American aircraft manufacturing by opening that market to the Chinese and sharing out technology with them.

He may actually know more than you think, though with his short time in the Senate I doubt it. Isn’t Grandmaster Jhoon Rhee the martial arts instructor for the House and Senate? There are supposedly a lot of congresscritters who work out, maybe Zero is one of them.

It simply doesn’t surprise me in the least that he’s left handed.

“Sinestro” is actually “left” in latin.

Ecclesiastes 10:2
The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.

Left-handers, I’m not painting you all with this brush, by any means. But 0bama, being what he is, HAS to be left handed.

Thank you. I was gonna point out the classic poseur white boy's 3-knuckle punch, complete with improper everything else, in his business suit no less. What a dork.
