Another colossal Obama failure
Posted - 3/22/2013 10:50:45 AM | show profile | flag this post
When he was elected in 2008, Barack Obama said one of his priorities was to repair the image of the US in the Middle East, principally in the Muslim world.
Not only has he utterly failed but our image in that region is much worse now than when George W Bush left office.

This article confirms what I posted yesterday about the strained relationship between Obama and Bibi Netanyahu...another component of his Mideast failure.

Yes, everything in the Middle East was just great before Obama came in. Those wars in Iraq and Afghanistan really made the people in the Middle East love us more than they already did. And Abu Ghraib was a real hoot also. Yes, Bush made us so popular with that part of the world and then Obama had to just throw it all away. You really need to put down that pipe.

Racists are those who now call you a racist when you say racist things, which you can't say, because there is no more racism except the racism of liberals calling conservatives racists for acting like racists, which we're not, because there is no more racism. We simply point out flaws of non-white people to help them.
On topic, Obama has failed in the middle east. He has not invaded a SINGLE country!!
And even though our standing is better than it was diplomatically under Bush, and hero cruiser points to an op-ed piece which is opinion not fact, BLAH BLAH BLAH.
cruiser is brave to make this appear to be a fact because he will be called stupid and look stupid, but he is NOT afraid to look stupid or even BE stupid.
As Patrick Henry said; "Give me liberty, or let me look like a f@cking idiot!"
Hero cruiser; idiot for liberty

It's not surprising
that people like cruise actually believe this bullsh*t:
"the strained relationship between Obama and Bibi Netanyahu...another component of his Mideast failure."
Maddow looked at what Fox did at the highlight of the presidents trip: "At the very moment Obama was receiving the highest honor Israel can bestow, Fox News was quite literally declaring him an enemy of the state.
"After that big speech that was so well received by that huge Israeli audience in Jerusalem, President Obama was honored at a state dinner. He was awarded the Israeli Medal Of Distinction which is the highest honor a civilian can receive in Israel. He is the first sitting President to ever receive this award. Israeli President Simon Peres said to President Obama quote “The people of Israel are particularly move by your unforgettable contribution to their security”. He called President Obama, Dear Barack.
So that was what was happening live in Israel. CNN and MSNBC are carrying it live showing the President of the United States receiving this medal at this big state dinner in a foreign country… Fox News channel however is pretending like it is not happening. They’re talking about repealing Obamacare…. We are all watching as the Israeli president is saying to President Obama, “I know that you would not stop striving for a better world. What was running on Fox News instead was a commercial for their new special on President Obama as an enemy of Israel…
COMMERCIAL: Obama: The State Of Israel will have no greater friend than the United States. Narrator: But with a friend like Obama are Israel’s enemies gaining strength. Sean gets expert insight on a special Hannity.
That is what Fox News was telling its audience of American Conservatives instead of showing this, happening in Israel. in real life, in the actual world at that very moment, They report, you decide.

Which means of course
You didn't even bother clicking on the link. Imagine my surprise.
You have no problem with citing a newspaper op-ed or blog to back up your point (which btw is often just fine)...but for some reason actual videotape or actual quotes are anathema for you.
C&L (and Huffington, and Drudge, etc etc) often posts actual recordings of what acutally happened. In this case, Maddow showed split-screen what Fox, MSNBC, and CNN were doing. You can interpret what you're seeing and hearing anyway you want, but tape is tape. I don't understand why you have a problem with such a simple concept.

Dismissiveness: a great way to start the day!

Good catch Grateful
"you people" is a stepping stone pronoun away from "those people".
And that kind of language scares the bejeezus out of me.

"a great way to start the day"
And you're a great one to dismiss. If you didn't always have an attitude maybe you'd be treated differently.

Ah, another bowl of cruiser's morning Wheaties.
Keep it going, o hater of women who have brains and opinions!
Posted - 3/23/2013 2:13:55 PM | show profile | flag this post
Well, you have opinions.
Posted - 3/23/2013 2:43:21 PM | show profile | flag this post
cruiser, grow up. You're not special. You're just a common and coarse limp old guy with a big mouth who knows diddly-squat about media and who's galled that the two women in media on this board who also teach at universities don't find your navel fuzz as fascinating as you do.
Your only interest is yourself. We all know it. It's as obvious as the blue sky. It's why you refuse to support your opinions with research and why you try whatever you can to stop conversations. You need to be the center of attention. You're so self-centered, you think Cruster pays you compliments.
Well, joy of joys -- you managed to stop this thread cold. Congratulations on your victory. You must feel the rush of accomplishment.
Have a nice day, old sucker. Smile, if it won't crack your face. Oh, and thanks for the morning Wheaties! So precious, reading your first jolt of nastiness as the sun rises.

You try so hard
to "psych" me but your schemes are crude and predictable. Go back to what you know best...and it DAMN sure ain't journalism.

Yeah. And, heaven knows, you're such a gifted, genius judge of journalism. Better than Capital Cities/ABC. Better than Hearst. Better than Knight-Ridder, New York Times and Tribune. Way, way better than Gannett! Why, with all your years of expert non-experience in the field, it's a real mystery why they've never knocked on your door in lo these 70-plus years.
Such a shame.

P.S. The persona you've built here is entertaining.
We all bet that in real life you hug babies and help old ladies cross the street.

You can't "psych" a hero like cruiser.
That's what his medicine is for.
That and getting rid of the hallucinations where he sees Minutemen shooting varmints with AR-15s and military wound bullets.
All paid for by Obamacare.

Update: "U.S. soars in world popularity..."
"Favorable global feelings toward the United States have returned to 2002 levels, matching generally warm, pro-American sentiments measured just prior to the Iraq War: 64 percent of the planet’s inhabitants tend to like America, according to numbers tabulated for NBC News by the Pew Research Center."
"That equates to a 13-point rise in American favorability among the same 19 nations surveyed by Pew in 2007"
And yes...This thread was started only five months ago; with the lines "Another colossal Obama failure" and "When he was elected in 2008, Barack Obama said one of his priorities was to repair the image of the US in the Middle East, principally in the Muslim world.
"Not only has he utterly failed..."
I just thought it was interesting how things can change.

"numbers tabulated for NBC News by the Pew Research Center"
What does that mean? Did Pew design the survey? Or was it NBC and Pew just did the tabulations?
Pew is reasonably impartial but I have an inherent distrust of NBC due to the shenanigans they've pulled in recent years...the unconscionably edited Zimmerman tapes leap to mind.
There was no link to the survey so I couldn't see for myself how it was constructed, who did it. etc.
