Obama: Making friends around the world

Remember how the leftists all cried during the 8 years of W "The world hates us!" Well, that may have been but as long as they feared the United States and didn't try anything stupid, it was perfect. Obama however, has decided to adopt a new kind of diplomacy. Forget "Speak softly and carry a big stick" ala Teddy Roosevelt, Obama's foreign policy derives of "piss on yourself and get in the fetal position". America's enemies know full well when they deal with a big foreign policy pussy. Just look at the Iranians and the contrast between Carter and Reagan. But here are several stories of B. Hussein being "tested":

North Korea

North Korea announced Friday that all agreements between it and South Korea had become "dead documents" in an apparent bid to refocus Seoul and Washington's attention on Pyongyang.

The Associated Press reports that on Friday, Pyongyang accused South Korean President Lee Myung Bak of worsening relations between the two Koreas by adopting a hard-line position against the North.

[The North's Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea] warned that Lee's stance would only draw "a heavier blow and shameful destruction."


US President Barack Obama's offer to talk to Iran shows that America's policy of "domination" has failed, the government spokesman said on Saturday.

"This request means Western ideology has become passive, that capitalist thought and the system of domination have failed," Gholam Hossein Elham was quoted as saying by the Mehr news agency.

"Negotiation is secondary, the main issue is that there is no way but for (the United States) to change," he added.

After nearly three decades of severed ties, Obama said shortly after taking office this month that he is willing to extend a diplomatic hand to Tehran if the Islamic republic is ready to "unclench its fist".

In response, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad launched a fresh tirade against the United States, demanding an apology for its "crimes" against Iran and saying he expected "deep and fundamental" change from Obama.



HAVANA — Fidel Castro on Thursday threw his first punch at President Obama after several weeks of praise for the new leader, demanding the U.S. return Guantanamo Bay military base to Cuba and criticizing the U.S. defense of Israel.

Fox News


CAMPO CARABOBO, Venezuela (Reuters) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said on Saturday Barack Obama had the "stench" of his predecessor as U.S. president and was at risk of being killed if he tries to change the American "empire."


Maybe this is the type of "respect" the left has been waiting America to have. No doubt The Big Zero will let these rouge dictators walk all over him, but what do you expect from somebody too stupid to tell a door from a window?

Obama's poll numbers competing with stock market drop

Browsing through the interwebs this morning, I came across on this story from The UK Daily Mail:

After less than a week in office, Barack Obama's approval rating plunges 15 points

Barack Obama might have been in office for less than a week, but the euphoria is beginning to wane.

The new President's approval ratings have fallen from a stratospheric 83 per cent to a more modest - although still impressive - 68 per cent.

Washington analysts said the scale of the drop in the Gallup poll underlines the immense challenges Mr Obama faces in trying to turn round the U.S.'s battered fortunes.

And just to think that usually the polls are stacked with would be Obama worshipers. Very telling here. Even George H.W. Bush enjoyed 89% approval ratings and in less than a year got the boot from the electorate.

I guess when ya promise cute fuzzy unicorns and rainbow gumdrops falling from the skies and don't come through, the polls start to go down faster than a chubby Jewish intern in the Clinton White House.

A YouTube Answer: Do You Hope Obama Succeeds?

"I hope Obama is successful when it comes to changing his mind on shoving the 2nd Amendment into a bear trap". Just one of the best lines from the vid. For those of you who haven't seen "Zo's" videos, check out his page on YouTube. The guy should have his own radio show.

Even Al-Queda loves change!

One of The Big Zero's main campaign promises that he actually made good on was the closing of Club Gitmo. What could go wrong with that? Well, here's an example.

Two ex-Guantanamo inmates appear in Al-Qaeda video
WASHINGTON (AFP) — Two men released from the US "war on terror" prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba have appeared in a video posted on a jihadist website, the SITE monitoring service reported.

One of the two former inmates, a Saudi man identified as Abu Sufyan al-Azdi al-Shahri, or prisoner number 372, has been elevated to the senior ranks of Al-Qaeda in Yemen, a US counter-terrorism official told AFP.

Three other men appear in the video, including Abu al-Hareth Muhammad al-Oufi, identified as an Al-Qaeda field commander. SITE later said he was prisoner No. 333…

On the video, al-Shihri is seen sitting with three other men before a flag of the Islamic State of Iraq, the front for Al-Qaeda in Iraq.

"By Allah, imprisonment only increased our persistence in our principles for which we went out, did jihad for, and were imprisoned for," al-Shihri was quoted as saying…

Maybe Obama's right about closing down Gitmo, but how about only after dropping a neutron bomb on it after having our soldiers evacuate? But I'm guessing they'll just release these pieces of cockroach excrement and as (surprisingly) Matt Lauer said we'd have a bunch of "international Willie Hortons".

Biting The Hand That Feeds

After the media's love affair with Obama got him elected to the highest in the free world, now it's a bit different. This is another tidbit from Newsbusters

On January 22 the Associated Press posted an interesting little tidbit of news about how Team Obama is treating the press. Apparently, the Obama White House is trying to force news agencies to use Obama's own, special, ostensibly "official" photographer's photos taken at Obama press conferences instead of allowing news agencies to have their own photogs present to record the event. As a result of this attempt by Obama to control his image, the AP and Reuters are a bit miffed that Obama is trying to control the press with such an iron fisted move like this.

All I have to ask is: NOW they get worried that Obama is not too dedicated to freedom of the press? After Obama is fairly elected, NOW the Old Media is beginning to question The One on his treatment of them?

Not to mention Obama is only going to let a select few of media bootlickers to have access to him. All other White House press need not raise their hands.

I guess they are questioning all those halo pics they took of them during the campaign. Seems like the honeymoon is soon to be over after the MSM made Obama what he is today. There's "transparency" and "an open government" for you.

Stock Market To Obama: You Suck

Just think if this is what the market looks like during just The Obamessiah's Immaculate Inauguration, imagine what it'll be like when Obama actually DOES something? "You want 50 shares of Microsoft? That'll be two paper clips and a ball of lint, please."

And also to add, now on Drudge, they have a big picture of this on the front page of the aftermath from yesterday's events:

Guess where the American flags they were handing out went?

Bush Bids Farewell With Secret Note To Obama

From Fox News:

Keeping with a White House ritual, Bush left a note for Obama in his desk in the Oval Office, wishing him well as he takes the reins of power.

"I won't provide any details, but the theme is similar to what he's said since election night about the fabulous new chapter President-elect Obama is about to start, and that he wishes him the very best," outgoing White House press secretary Dana Perino said Tuesday.

Actually, anonymous sources in the Obama administration have leaked out the "secret" note from the retired president.

Dear Barry,

I'm pretty sure the desk will be fine for you - it was for me!

I left you most of a box of Kleenex, just inside the small table behind the desk.

You'll need it to wipe up the tears of a shattered nation once you begin to realize that the job is WAAAAAY bigger than you are.

Good luck! You'll need it!

Advice For Obama

For all the psudeo-conservatives and even those conservatives I admire kissing ass to Obama about how we should "want him to succeed", I thought I'd share some advice with the new president on what to do to succeed.

* No matter how much he looks like he needs one, never give a murderous dictator a hug.

* If you bomb enough of a country’s infrastructure, including fossil fuel burning power plants and factories, war can actually be carbon neutral.

* If you don’t like a government policy, don’t march down a street shouting about while burning an American flag; just go ahead and change the policy.

* Protesting troops as baby-killers is considered a faux pas when you’re the commander in chief.

* As easy as 100% taxation would make things for funding your programs, most economists agree you have to let people keep at least some money.

* You may love peace, but if an enemy country actually invades the U.S., people are going to expect you to respond militarily even if you personally think that would be an overreaction.

* If the American people turn against your policies, don’t just shout, “I know better than you, you inbred, sky fairy-worshiping hillbillies!” That hardly ever helps.

* No matter how smart actors may seem, they really aren’t the best foreign policy advisers.

* It would be great to capture Osama bin Laden, but giving him a plea bargain so he’ll testify against the real terrorist, George W. Bush, probably won’t go over as well as you expect.

* Just because some more foreign countries may like us doesn’t mean they’ll actually be anymore useful.

* No matter how sure you are that conservatives are evil and just like Nazis, you can’t round them up into camps.

* Blaming Bush for problems is going to be harder the longer it’s been since he was in office; you’ll eventually have to find a new scapegoat. The Jews tend to be the popular choice.

* Though you probably want to reduce military engagements, you’ll actually have to expand war to all parts of the globe if you don’t want the military’s enemy body count to look racist.

Tips from Frank J, who is way more funny than I am.

God Goes Medieval On Al-Queda

Since the bloodthirsty savages in Al-Queda are mentally living in the 14th century, it's only fitting that they share the same plague. From The UK Sun:

Anti-terror bosses last night hailed their latest ally in the war on terror — the BLACK DEATH.

At least 40 al-Qaeda fanatics died horribly after being struck down with the disease that devastated Europe in the Middle Ages.

Since the Black Death spread across Europe in the Middle Ages and decimated anywhere between 25 to 50 million people, maybe the hand of God is working here to help our troops by offing these bass ackwards mongrels in the worst way. Gotta wonder about that.

Scene From Coronation '09

Glenn Beck's parody of the new National Anthem. Only fitting since Obama seems to love himself more than America.

Change...Coming To A Theater Near You

More Obamamania here. According to The Hollywood Report, MSNBC (and they say there's no liberal media) has brokered a deal for Obamunists, if they can get out of their parents' basements for the day, to see The Big Zero's inauguration on the big screen.

Obama inauguration to air in theaters
MSNBC pact puts coverage in 27 U.S. locations

By Paul J. Gough

Jan 12, 2009, 07:15 PM ET

President-elect Barack Obama is on his way to the big screen, thanks to a deal between MSNBC and Screenvision that will put the news channel's inaugural coverage in 27 theaters around the country.

Free tickets are being handed out via to see the inauguration and parade from 11 a.m.-3:30 p.m. ET at the 27 theaters run by 11 exhibitor partners in 21 markets. Midday Tuesday isn't necessarily a big movie time, so it helps to fill the theater -- and boost popcorn and soda sales -- at a time when it's not usually busy.

That means that Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews and other MSNBC and NBC personalities will play the big movie screen in addition to the usual MSNBC cable and satellite stream. MSNBC won't be in high-definition until the second quarter, but both the channel and Screenvision say the quality will still be high.

"It'll look great," MSNBC president Phil Griffin said. "We're thrilled about it."

Would they have done the same for Juan McLame had he got elected? I think not. Like Ann Coulter said brilliantly in her new book (and if you haven't got it yet, do so), "the media wants to screw Obama, only in the sense they want to have sex with him."

A Test You WANT To Fail

I'm an embarrassment to Barack!

I only scored 13 on the Obama Test

I got a 13. I would have got a 15, but I'm bitter as all get out.
