Has any American president - hell, has any president, prime minister, monarch or dictator - ever dissed his own country abroad the way Obama has? First he records that TV commercial of his awesome self and beams it to Iran (where the reaction of the mullahs was pretty much, "Meh. What else is on?"). Then he goes to Europe, where he winds up putting not only physical, but philosophical, distance between himself and America, and gets the raspberries from the friggin' president of France!! And now he's all set to offer apologies on behalf of the USA to a gaggle of commie buffoons in South America.
And you know why he feels no shame or embarrassment for making these apologies? Or, for that matter, any anger when tinpot tyrants mouth off at the USA? Because he has so dissociated himself from America and its history and traditions that he considers himself as hardly more than a disinterested runner, just a paid courier delivering somebody's else's message - our message, as it turns out; or rather, the message that we Americans would and should deliver if we weren't such jingoistic, flag-wavin' cowboys. Sickening.
"Yo, Hugo! What up, dawg? I'll arm-wrestle you for Colombia!"
Update: It's the sheer "unawareness" that's mind-boggling (Texas Rainmaker via Smitty at The Other McCain).
