Posted on 05/28/2011 10:46:56 AM PDT by NormsRevenge
WARSAW, Poland Holding out Poland's transformation to democracy as a model for the world, President Barack Obama on Saturday exhorted Western allies and the American public alike to extend their support, energy and vision to those now reaching for democracy in the Middle East and North Africa.
Obama wound up his six-day trip to Europe with a message aimed squarely at the people of the United States, saying that in a time of tight budgets, "I want the American people to understand we've got to leave room for us to continue our tradition of providing leadership when it comes to freedom, democracy, human rights."
Obama, in a brief news conference with Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk, assured Americans that he spends the bulk of each day worrying about the U.S. economy and how to strengthen it and create jobs. But he coupled that with the message that it is a U.S. obligation to support democracy around the globe, one that pays dividends in the form of a safer and more prosperous world.
Speaking with urgency in his voice, Obama said that while no outside country can "impose change" on another, "We can really help. We can facilitate. We can make a difference."

To the world, I say..
Beware of sheep in wolf clothing.

Springtime for Achmed Hitler.
History will show that America took the wrong side
and that the entire US Congress had not a single testicle among them.

I wonder who he thinks he’s actually fooling?
Yahoo news is constantly slanting their headlines to support Obama and the Democrats. How convenient that they don’t mention how Obama is actually helping Al-Queda, the very people we are at war with. They also completely ignore how this uprising is targeting Jews and Christians. Christians have been killed, some set on fire and churches destroyed simply because Muslims mobs think some Christian “insulted” Mohamed. Yet the media harps on how Muslims are being “hated”. Obama has been trying to push for thousands more Muslim come to the US. Why? Obama is classifying them as “refugees”. Really? Who’s persecuting them? An imaginary phantom that’s a convenient bogyman for the left. Just what we need, more Sharia-loving people who would vote to replace our Constitution, one might get the impression they’re trying to destabilize the country. Absolute BS.
Somehow the AP “forgot” to include the fact that Lech Walesa refused to meet with Obama in Poland and that the extravagant welcome for him in the UK resulted in his being smacked down by the Queen. There were probably other “oversights” and plenty of over statements as well.
“exhorted Western allies and the American public alike to extend their support, energy and vision to those now reaching for democracy in the Middle East and North Africa. “
Wait....didn’t this a$$hole just get his snout publicly slapped for trying to throw the freest Middle-East democracy under the bus a couple weeks ago?
Onward and upward muslim brotherhood !
Barry is beyond dangerous at this point.
With over 30% of US foreign aid going to Muslim countries that continue to eat our bread and hate our guts, this weirdo really does have a lot of nerve. He needs to be reviled and persecuted after this flop of a trip.
YOU have hit the nail on the head, and the Arab Spring is just a way of promoting the jhadists known as “the muslim brotherhood”!
So far he has fooled at least half of USA citizens, by becoming President. As for the overseas crowd, so many were already braindead, it’s just another US Pres to them.
Arab Spring is a euphemism for serial revolutions with this trash pile of Middle Eastern humanity’s idea of democracy being to hit the streets every 3 weeks to overthrow whomever is in office because he failed to fix an irreparable culture. Egypt and Tunisia and now Yemen seem to be on Revolution number 2 with 3 and 4 to follow. Not a dime for these eternal losers I say.
I count Israel...and that's about all.
This Muhamadobama is a real political croock who want to force the islamisation of the western world....
Lech Walesa and Karol Wojtyla (J.Paul II) are not islamo-fascists...The croock in chief missed something in his poor training.
Anyway this scum in the WH has a manufactured agenda prepared behind closed doors....US citizens must know !
In addition he wants us to fund those uncertain “revolutions”....
Obama’s merely spreading our “wealth” around. He’s good at that.
The Soetoro kid seems utterly unaware that the French tried that; the British tried that. The Spaniards tried that. For over 80 years.
The results can be summarized by the long list of thousands of assasinations and executions and hundreds of enormous 9-figure bank accounts scattered throughout the world.
Yeah, he’s got the time to lobby for fundamentalist muslim nations, to campaign as a fake Irishman and embarrass us in England, but it’s been seven days and counting since 132 Americans (and counting) died in Missouri and so far, just lip service from 0.
I guess they just ain’t his type of people. One thing you can be sure of—Joplin, described in more than one article as a “gritty, working class community”(translated: “white”) will pull itself up with or without help from 0’s Washington.
Did you see the dirty looks Michelle gave the queen at the dinner?
Having a laugh at the Warsaw Ghetto memorial.
He is DESPICABLE.
He did indeed. But, he forgot, I guess. It's up to us to help refresh his memory - 24/7.
Today the Drudge posted, “Tornado orphans grieve, carry on...” and “Funerals begin...”
Zero couldn't be bothered to be there for his OWN grieving countrymen. And now that funeral services have begun for those lost in the tornadoes, I wish he wouldn't bother dropping by just to pose with the flower arrangements.
Its only going to make me really really angry!
He's going to try and look mournful and sincere as he speaks to the hurting communities... as if we haven't seen pictures of him laughing, drinking, prancing, and smirking overseas in photo ops ALL this week.
What a pandering, duplicitous, snake this man is!
He sings it to this tune:
♫ Springtime ♪♫
♪♪ for Hitler ♫♪
♪♫ and Germany ♫♪♪
They should do a remake of The Producers with Obama and Arafat singing.
lol. If only Mel Brooks had one last good movie left in him..
1. Obama won't get a dime for his Arab Spring if it requires the approval of Congress.
2. Poland has a grand history in the preservation of Western Civilization:
After twelve hours of fighting, the Poles held the high ground on the right. The Holy League cavalry waited on the hills, and watched the infantry battle for the whole day. Then at about 5 PM King of Poland ordered the attack, the cavalry attacked in four groups. One group was Austrian-German, and the other three were Polish. Twenty thousand horsemen charged down the hills (the largest cavalry charge in history). The charge was planned and led by King of Poland Jan III Sobieski at the head of 3,000 Polish heavy lancers, the famed "Winged Hussars". The Lipka Tatars who fought on the Polish side wore a sprig of straw in their helmets to distinguish themselves from the Tatars fighting on the Ottoman side. The charge broke the lines of the Ottomans, who were tired from the long fight on two sides. In the confusion, the cavalry headed straight for the Ottoman camps, while the remaining Vienna garrison sallied out of its defenses and joined in the assault.
The Ottoman troops were tired and dispirited following the failure of both the sapping attempt and the brute force assault on the city. The arrival of the cavalry turned the tide of battle against them, sending them into retreat to the south and east. In less than three hours after the cavalry attack, the Christian forces had won the battle and saved Vienna.
After the battle, Sobieski paraphrased Julius Caesar's famous quote by saying "Venimus, Vidimus, Deus vincit" - "We came, We saw, God conquered".
Not that I've seen and I'll be stunned if it ever is. This is a good point to use with friends who still watch and/or trust MSM. If they haven't heard it, "Do you ever wonder what else they haven't told you..."
What worries me more then anything else is we have two types in Washington and around this country. Those who are too stupid to understand that the pos in WH is working for the MB and those who are complicit. Im beginning to think that those of us who see through his taquia are in a minority.
LOL! It proves she's the smarter of the two. I don't think he got it until QE2 hissed, "Set it down." But it wasn't the Queen's fault. It was Islamo Bamma's fault.
Let’s call it what it is. The US is now acting as “the ideal place for Islamic renewal.” We pay the jizya for all the borrowed billions sent to the ME, 80% of which goes for weaponry...to kill Jews sooner and Christians sooner or later.
0bama’s religious advisor used those exact words last summer. And 0bama, remember, spoke of the US as the largest Muslim nation on earth.
Of course 0bama celebrate Polish Jews at the Warsaw Ghetto. Almost all of them died.
Would you believe the "promises" Obama allegedly the made to these Polish Jews (according to another AP story) to "stand by Israel"? I don't think that these photos are going to improve his popularity in Israel, but they were probably staged by his henchmen in an effort to ease the problems created in the American Jewish community by his State Dept. speech last week. Hopefully, the gambit won't work.
BTW, would you not think that he would have a language problem in communicating with these Polish Jews?
I'd laugh if it weren't such a serious matter. But that elderly Polish Jewish man seems to be really annoyed with Zero. I just hope he's not punished for speaking his mind.
Moslum spring? No dice, but this Irish Spring"... so refreshing,(from advertisement)" especially since he explored his mommies color and whined and is still whining about racism, BUT maybe she was black Irish?
Yeah, so we can make somewhere where we can shovel even more HARD-EARNED American tax money, as if it's no more important than monopoly money.
I still can't believe that we "sold" Egypt 1,000 Abrams, helped them set up factories to manufacture spare parts, scores of F-16's and gods knows what else.
What a bunch of low-grade morons are in charge of this country.
Egypt's only POSSIBLE enemy is Israel.
Do you know who originated the term ‘Arab Spring’?
OBarry shouldn’t stick his filthy feet on Polish land.
Bo still doesn't get it...nobody's listening to him on the International scene. He simply doesn't matter now. They all just entertain him when he comes and gives him the due respect of the office he sits in.
The Zeighist cult uses it alot..”Spring” this and that. Excuse my spelling of their cult name...but they do use it quite often.
They have already started re-building ...I saw a Business putting up the framework on their sites foundation today. I would love it if Ob’s photo shoot show him standing next to those buildings already being raised....a “Too late” news heading would be appropriate.
The boy king’s approach is the usual liberal wishful thinking: throw tax payers’ money at the problem, i.e. Africa. In fact it’s the same empty headed approach liberals have to everything. They treat us like fools and our hard earned dollars like play money. As for Africa, it’s a tar baby. They need a human genome upgrade, and that takes generations. Not money. And that goes for the Arabs, too, except that they need to dump Islam - that cult that’s kept them in the ninth century. They’re no more than fanatical savages with a whopping and well deserved inferiority complex.
