Obama Says “I’ll Bend, But Not Break”

According to this Yahoo News headline.

That’s fine, Big Guy. If you’ll just bend this much toward common sense, we’ll all be satisfied:

The eloquent Charles Krauthammer, incidentally, composes variations on the theme of Obama’s grand tour. Given the President’s strange public dissociation from America and its traditions, I was tempted to believe that Obama had come to see himself as a citizen of the world; however, the world has wisely spurned some of his more naïve suggestions, so now I’m wondering if perhaps he hasn’t started to feel more like the brother from another planet.

Am I the only one who thinks that guy behind Obama looks like Hiro on Heroes?

More seriously, I am honestly beginning to believe that, rather than being the post-racial president, Obama actually sees America, and despises it, as a monolithic white nation that oppressed the poor, cotton-pickin' colored folks daily, which he must liberate.

..."just Roosevelt and Churchill sitting in a room with a brandy."

How does that not drip contempt for the people who shaped 20th century western history?
