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."

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.

"That's quite close enough!" says Bronislaw to the empty suit.
The US has been sending money to the Palestinian Authority and training them militarily. The only result to be seen was the unification of Fatah and Hamas. I can’t believe that this President is intentionally sabotaging the United States, but the evidence is multiplying:
-During a deep recession, and just when the economy was poised to rebound strongly, he spent a trillion dollars of borrowed money to bolster the states’ government sector and increase the deficit, and has proposed carbon taxes and other taxes that would have choked any economy;
-During a time of rising energy costs, he choked off any new drilling, permitting, or exploration within the US, while sending $ to Brazil to do the same thing there
-He’s trying to destroy the healthcare industry, which is one of the few where we have an advantage over the rest of the world, and is responsible for huge amounts of exports
-He’s going after some of the most successful banks like Goldman Sacks and JP Morgan, and has made them much less competitive internationally
-Through his apology tour he’s been blaming the US for all the world’s problems
-He has shown clear antipathy and actual enmity toward 2 of the US’s strongest allies, Israel and Great Britain (apart from symbolic gestures the equivalent of flipping them the bird, he has sided squarely with the Palestinians against Israel, and has sided with Argentina regarding the Falklands against Great Britain).
-He has consistently played down the role of the White House related to Christian Holidays and traditions, and has played up any Muslim ones.
If it walks like a duck...
Isn’t it funny that those doing the ‘smack-down’ on clowns like Obama and Chavez are these old monarchs? I just happened to remember that just a few years ago, the old Spanish King Juan Carlos, verbally smacked Hugo Chavez up-side the head! LOL!
It created quite a stir! The funny thing is- a lot of the world got a kick out of it! Hugo Chavez was being quite a brat, and got uppity and bad-mouthed their ex-PM (Aznar). The old King leaned over and scolded him but good! He only had to say a few words, too. I remember also that even the left-wing successor to Aznar even defended Aznar to Hugo somewhat!
Yes! I remember Juan Carlos smacking Hugo Chavez down and I was surprised to see how effective it was. I’d like to see more of it!
