It’s not often that anybody sincerely thanks Barack Hussein Obama for any of his official acts, at least, not publicly. After all, his only contributions to the world have been global instability, chaos, economic destruction and war mongering which has further tarnished the name and image of Americans around the world.
Let’s ignore his worldwide devastating impact for just a moment. Today, Barack Hussein actually did something to benefit two other nations which will undoubtedly have an even greater appreciation for their good fortune at a time in the not too distant future.
He had originally planned four stops on his Asian tour, set to begin this Saturday. His tour was to begin in his adopted homeland of Indonesia, then move on to Brunei, Malaysia and the Philippines.
Not being one to let an opportunity for divisive politics go to waste, he manipulated the DC situation into a chance to bail on the last two stops. Harry Reid’s obstinate old grandpa routine provided a perfect excuse to cancel, and draw international attention upon the Republicans and the “government shutdown” that really isn’t. He was able to take the world stage and badmouth his political opposition. Way to make Americans proud, Mr. President.
I’m having a little trouble coming to an understanding of his rationale. If the government needs him so desperately, that he has to snub two of America’s Asian allies, how does he still have time for the first two? Team on the ground or not, cancelling for a legitimate national priority sometimes has to be done. And conversely, if he’s really just the totally inept blowhard wrecking ball that even Miley Cyrus wouldn’t touch, the longer he’s away the better for all concerned.
The official lie out of the White House, as told by National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden, is that the personnel were not yet in place and the regime was not able to go forward with planning. Really? I’m just an average guy and when I travel I make all of my arrangement prior to landing in the destination. I have my hotel picked out, rental car reserved, everything I can do I have it done a month or so ahead of time.
Too bad the White House travel staff didn’t know about this little trick. They’d have been able to go. In all fairness to them, maybe they just don’t have much experience in planning these types of things. Vacations and trips abroad are so rare with this Obama family of homebodies. Maybe they can get some professional help from Expedia, or Travelocity.
In the true spirit of never letting a perfectly good crisis go to waste, Hayden added: “The cancellation of this trip is another consequence of the House Republicans forcing a shutdown of the government. This completely avoidable shutdown is setting back our ability to promote U.S. exports and advance U.S. leadership in the largest emerging region in the world.”
Way to air your dirty laundry in public for the whole world to see, Hussein. Of course, by now the world is on to you and knows that you don’t do your own laundry anyway. Laundry is something that other people do to you right before you blame them for how bad the stains are. The hamper was full on day one, and the pile just never got any smaller.
A personal phone call from the apologetic Hussein Obama helped smooth things over with the Malaysian and Philippine heads of state. They understand, Barry. They were probably relieved that they don’t have to tolerate your condescension and arrogance. Both of those traits are seen as character defects that are frowned upon in Asian cultures.
So relax, Barry, everything is fine.
The people of Asia, as in the rest of the world, are starting to figure you out for the phony that you are. There was a time when they believed every messianic rant that came over CNN international. That is changing.
As you show through your actions that the promises of 2008 were empty politics, they see you now more clearly, less idealistically and will undoubtedly understand who you are much better over the next year or two.
You promised to reschedule a visit in your call to the leaders. Take your time, what’s the rush. There’s a party in Malaysia and the Philippines tonight. And it’s all thanks to you, Barry. Why ruin the party?
