Skip to comments.Obama to Travel the Globe in 2016 to Tout His Foreign Policy Successes
Posted on 12/29/2015 5:40:46 PM PST by Kaslin
A recent Organizing for America fundraising letter to supporters contained an ominous threat from President Barack Obama: "I've got 12 months left to squeeze every ounce of change I can while I'm still in office. And that's what I intend to do."
Not mentioned in the letter is his plan to squeeze out every ounce of travel he can while he's still in office. In keeping with his reputation as a "permanent campaigner," Obama plans to go on a global tour in 2016 to "seal his foreign policy legacies."
Obama will be spewing carbon from Air Force One into the atmosphere of every corner of the globe to promote his "progress against the Islamic State and significant global movement on climate change," courtesy of the American taxpayer.
You read that right.
Obama has asked aides to set a busy international travel schedule for him in his final year, with "half a dozen" trips already in the works and more potentially coming together. The travel will be aimed at cementing a foreign policy legacy he hopes will include the Trans-Pacific Partnership, increased attention to Asia, an opening of Latin America, progress against the Islamic State and significant global movement on climate change.
Obama has spent more time traveling abroad than any other U.S. president in history, a study from the National Taxpayer Union Foundation (NTUF) found in March of 2014.
"The most internationally well-traveled President, through five years, is also flying the most expensive-to-operate Air Force One to date," NTUF wrote.
But there are apparently still some countries left out there that "the President of the World" hasn't yet toured -- and time's a-wasting. Indeed, "how little time Obama has left is part of nearly every conversation," according to Politico.
The only continents the White House is ruling out as presidential destinations are Australia and Antarctica. And while another multi-stop trip to Africa is also off the table (after a visit to Kenya and Ethiopia in 2015), aides familiar with the matter say, a single stop there tacked onto another trip, perhaps one to Europe, is still possible.
Four trips have already been scheduled.
Barack Obama allegedly built his political career on "audacity" -- which his supporters will always think of in its most favorable light: "a willingness to take bold risks."
The rest of us will always remember him "showing an impudent lack of respect." And that will be when we're being the most charitable.
That will be a short trip!
LOL! The Kenyan Nobel Peace Prize Justification Tour 2016. And WE have to pay for it. What an ahole.
1) Trump wins election in Nov 2016
2) Obama vacates the White House Feb 2017
3) Obama selected as President of United Nations, March 2017
4) US cancels funding of UN and orders the organization to leave US soil, April 2017
A fellow cam dream ...
Gosh, I hope he stays out of the country as much as possible the next 387 days or so.
Actually it is time for another country to step up and host the United Nations. How about Saudi Arabia?
That arrogant pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave has to vacate the premises on January 20, 2017 not February, but I think I know what you are getting at and it would not surprise me if he tried to stay.
Banki Moon and his corrupt, thieving cronies have got to go. They’ve fed at the American trough long enough. Get them the hell out. Surely there is some other country that still believes that this old Cold War dinosaur is still worth wasting money on. Americans have had enough of the UN’s bull****.
Foreign policy successes?
This simply HAS to be satire! Did you forget the satire tag?
“Actually it is time for another country to step up and host the United Nations. How about Saudi Arabia?”
I always thought Haiti would be Ideal
WHAT world policies???????????????? LOLOL!
Apology Tour Two
Just following in the footsteps of John Fraud Kerry
His last chance for taxpayers to cover the trip. Fly all over the world, give a 2 minute interview to some fawning local paper, then 1 week of golf and parties.
No doubt about it he is laying ground work for something bigger like the Obama foundation or some Soros inspired mayhem. Perhaps head of the UN but I think he’s too lazy for that.
What’s he doing , picking up the bribe money personally ?
The only ones who will listen to his bullsh##
