Our dear leader is at it again spending away our good earned money. While going to the G8 summit in Germany,they stopped in Ireland so Michelle could see her family roots. She and her entourage of 30 stayed in $3,800 a night rooms all at taxpayer expense. Now after the G8 summit they are heading to Africa for a family vacation that costs us between 80 and 100 million dollars. Meanwhile workers at Walter Reed Medical Center are being furloughed because of the sequester and the White House tours are still being closed to school kids and tourists who want to learn about “THEIR” house, but it’s OK to spend 100 million for Obama to go to Africa. Obama playsand America pays. Go figure.
The left will be quick to argue that Bush (Here we go again It’s always Bush) went to Africa for millions of dollars and he went to his ranch every week-end. But when Bush went to his ranch he worked there chopping wood and clearing brush and his staff had quarters there and he met with them.
A recent article in the Drudge report had this to say about the sparse attendance at Obama’s speech in Germany:
Fast forward to 2013, and many are now saying that Obama’s reputation is “tarnished,” by his recent snooping scandals, his extensions of the war on terror, and the hard luck realities of failing to deliver on all your promises. (Even ones you didn’t really make.) He’s “demystified” and “no longer a superstar” in German eyes. Now he’s just another world leader on a state visit, and whatever problems people have with U.S. policy are on his shoulders.
His speech today (you can click here for a detailed comparison vs. the 2008 speech) called for a reduction in global nuclear weapons (through more negotiations with Russia) and defended the idea of Western intervention in Syria. Hammering on the theme of “peace with justice,” he also discussed closing Guantanamo Bay and taking action on climate change, calling it the “global flood of our time.” (Much more on that here.) But it was notably different in tone than 2008’s more sweeping view of the world, which was a speech more fitting for a candidate.
During his speech Obama kept confusing U.K finance minister George Osborne with soul singer Jeffrey Osborne. This is the same man who said that he had visited all ‘57’ states during his campaign for the presidency in 2008, ‘with one more to go.’ All I have to say is that I’m glad I never voted for this poor excuse of a president.
MSNBC host and Obama sycophant and thrill up his leg Chris Matthews blamed the sun for spoiling the president’s speech in Berlin today.
“I think a lot of the problem he had today was the late afternoon sun in Berlin ruined his use of the teleprompter and so his usual dramatic windup was ruined,” Matthews said immediately after the speech. “I think he was really struggling with the text there.”
Speaking behind a glass bulletproof shield, Obama appeared to be using the text of the speech rather than reading off of teleprompters.
That’s so ridiculous now they are blaming the sun on his failures. Also while speaking at the Brandenburg Bridge talked about disarmament of our nuclear weapons. He said he was going to do this in 2008 when he was campaigning. Meanwhile other nations like North Korea are building up and threatening us, the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt declared us an enemy along with Isreal, Iran building nukes and siding with the Muslim Brotherhood and Syria in upheaval and he talks about cutting back opur nuclear and missile defense at a time when the world is such a dangerous place is not good.
The reason the Soviet Union collapsed was because we outspent them in missile defense and Reagan had the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) and was ready to launch it. Peace thru strength. That’s how it should be not cutting back when everyone else is building up. Once again Obama plays while America pays.
