Either he is watching a Serena Willimas match, or three teleprompters are now better than one. Although, the handlers probably turned off the one directly in front of him.
Took me a minute to get what you were saying. No love for the people straight ahead. Guess he doesn't want to look eye to eye.
were vare the gold tassels...
Yeah so basically hes saying we're coming to git you... for "humanitarian efforts"
Ignore everything else going on in the world!
FUKSUHIMA!!! THE WHOLE EU CRUMBLING!!!
Got my supplies and gold and silver. I'm ready!!!
SHUSH. Those statements don't apply to those who are politically favorable... Might start a protest or revolution with those obvious observations and conclusions...
Obama just said democratic expansions depend on broad-based growth and prosperity. So once Saudi Arabia becomes prosperous, then democracy will follow?
Does that mean if a country loses its prosperity and growth democracy goes away too?
Uh-oh. Our next system in US . . . monarchy? No, anarchy? No. Already here . . . oligarchy. Bankers rule!
That is what he said. Thats his logic. Logic dictates China would be a democrazy by now follwing that reasoning. Who said power is corrupting and absolute power corrupts absolutely? (rhetorical) Yeah we are screwed
looking at the U.S., why on earth would China want adopt more "democracy"?
Excessive Democracy in the US has created runaway entitlements, runaway prices for medical services, and ballooning (politically) unstoppable deficits.
It took a few hundred years to get around to it, but eventually the people saw they could vote themselves goodies from the treasury and ruin the whole experiment. Today we're there, with more than half of the electorate paying no federal taxes or actually receiving money from the treasury.
I just saw that San Fransisco is going to bring to vote banning circumcisions. Proving that freedoms are "capable" of being put on a ballot for mob rule to take away rights.
DOWN WITH DEMOCRACY! UP WITH OLIGARCHY!
We've turned all governance over to Big Capital. But you've evidently got no problem with that.
The only time working people get 'goodies' are those times when they threaten to blow up the whole stinking con.
He is really good at reading off the teleprompters, though. With many people it's painfully obvious that they are reading off a screen. With Obama, you can't really tell. The wagging his head back and forth between the two screens is pretty goofy.
I disagree, there have been several points in the speech that it became clear he was reading a speech and his thoughts were elsewhere.
Probably thinking about how soon he will need to hole up in his underground bunker.
See, I can't stand to watch an entire Obama speech. I only saw the first minute or so.
It makes it easier to lie...
Obama stash for all!
Obama, the only sitting US president with enough balls to call Israel on their BS. At least Obama will have done one good thing is in presidency.
More money to Egypt, Tunisia and Jordan (billions) while people in America are on food stamps and don't have jobs and there's record deficits... Joy.
thats money back to America in one way or another Multiplied...you really believe those countries get any money??? you really think Obama can actually decide on these things? these are things in the making in 20-30 years...get real!
They are technically loans. However, the last time we did "loans for recovery" such as... Haiti, we just forgave them (but the chinese didn't forgive us).
the majority are contracts for american companies... either employing americans or selling smt 4-5 times the real price...
The Carter admin. wasn't even this bad.
According to the original "misery index" you are indeed correct!
you said it.
Yup. The American public is wildly opposed to giving MORE foreign aid. A lot of them even think this is a big part of the federal budget....and it is if you include all of our treaty and security commitments backed by our very expensive global military.
Carter was Navy; Obama is CIA.
It's called "the two party system."
Smart, strong and serene, as always.
I expect President Barack H. Obama to be reelected hands down in 2012.
The global economic recovery is stronger than ever, and LULU/LNKD are reaching absolute, incredible highs.
" Smart, strong and serene." ....& i was just thinking the opposite :
Liar, scammer, bankster flunky of JPMORGAN.
It's getting old, now, dude.
Yeah this post is a dead give away no less. He's losing his touch.
How boring it will be for AIPAC conference attendees this coming weekend to hear an address by Obama with the same status quo, pro-Israel comments he made today. Is there any political observer left in the world that doesn’t know that in addition to the Israeli occupation of Palestine, the Federal area surrounding the city of Washington, DC is occupied by the Israelis as well.
To watch the official elected representatives of the American people bend the knees to worship at the shrine of Israeli foreign policy paraded before them by the foreign government’s lobbying effort called AIPAC, is to know how completely dishonest America is for a peace broker on the Palestinian question.
Says bended-knee worshipper Obama today: “Israel must be able to defend itself – by itself – against any threat.”
Notice the phrase “by itself.”
Does that mean withdrawal of complete superpower support for the largest, most powerful military operation in the Middle East?
Does that mean no more constant protection in the United Nations for Israeli aggression against a world attempting to support the beleaguered and half-starved Palestinian people?
Does that mean no more vetoes in the U.N. when all other nations are lining up to try and support international law on behalf of the Palestinians?
Does that mean no more sweetheart arms deliveries to Israel of the most sophisticated weaponry yet available?
From the time Israel was inserted into Palestine in 1948, displacing hundreds of thousands of Arabs from their homes and villages, the state of Israel has required the constant support of the United States military, state department and treasury. President Obama is not a huge truth teller, and when he says that Israel should be able to support itself, by itself, that ain’t what he means.
What he means is Palestine can have a nation of its own, “a sovereign, non-militarized state,” sort of like the sovereign, non-militarized state of Guantanamo prison.
Anglo-Amrkn corporate nation-state, ME trojan horse.
alone? nah, all-one.
We have now asked Dr. Bernanke to further juice the printing machines on behalf of Tunisia, Egypt and the other countries we want to support with new financial support after driving them to revolt with the higher food prices we also supported through our printing presses. You're welcome!
Why not license them to print their own?
Great idea! Or maybe franchise them? Lots of countries can get on board that way.
* Listens to Rush instead
Yeah Rush is another proof that Canada can, or least to be able to punch way above it weight in entertainment. The Baldwins, Celine Dion, Jim Carrey, and of course the progressive rock trio famous for songs like "Tom Sawyer".
Be cool or be cast out!
This is fun...Puke! Yes, O, Hillary is awsome!
Since they've taught her to speak very... very... slowly.
