The Eeyore Nation

Political Cartoon by Chuck Asay

Our President, spending $200 million dollars a day to go to Indonesia to praise India and Indonesia, but stab his own country in the back AGAIN.

It’s the not the Apology Tour. It’s the “We Suck, Get used to it” Tour.

Times of India- MUMBAI: Implicitly acknowledging the decline of American dominance, Barack Obama on Sunday said the US was no longer in a position to “meet the rest of the world economically on our terms”.  

Speaking at a town hall meeting in Mumbai, he said, “I do think that one of the challenges that we are going face in the US, at a time when we are still recovering from the financial crisis is, how do we respond to some of the challenges of globalisation? The fact of the matter is that for most of my lifetime and I’ll turn 50 next year – the US was such an enormously dominant economic power, we were such a large market, our industry, our technology, our manufacturing was so significant that we always met the rest of the world economically on our terms. And now because of the incredible rise of India and China and Brazil and other countries, the US remains the largest economy and the largest market, but there is real competition.”

Translation: We Suck. And Damn I proud of it. I have brought down the evil, oppressive, imperialist, consumer-greedy, giant!
Damn I’m good!!
So now that we aren’t a threat to you, can you like us more, please… 😦
Oh, and I will visit a Muslim Holy site, but in a Hindu Nation I will not go anywhere near any Hindu Shrines.
But I’m not a Muslim apologist.
Nope. Not me.
Obama, who just lost control of the House of Representatives to the Republicans, unbashedly said the objective of his visit was to find jobs for his voters. “I want to make sure we are here because this will create jobs in the US,” he said, but stressed he was for a kind of relationship which will create jobs in India as well. As he put it: “A win-win proposition.”
His Voters??
Why not “subjects” or “peasants”?
His voters? (The SEIU, The NEA, UAW,ACORN, Minorities, etc??)
And he’s looking for jobs for US workers in India? What the f*ck!!
How about “finding” them in America you nincompoop! 😦
In the context of his efforts to revive the US economy, the president clearly sees, as he wrote in an article, India and China as key drivers of economic growth.
Yeah, India gets our jobs and China absorbs the debt he rings up!
He doesn’t see Americans are being an engine of our own growth!
After all, we aren’t important anymore.
This reminded me of the wonderful scene in Pixar’s “The Incredibles” in which the mom says, “Everyone’s special,” and her son replies, “Which is another way of saying no one is.”
Everyone is the same. Everyone is Equal. No one is better than anyone else. No one is different.
That’s Liberalism today, and our dear President now.
But, by all means, Democrats, listen to the sophisticates who chortle at the idea that there’s anything especially good about America. That will solve Obama’s “communication problem.” (Jonah Goldberg)
Maybe if he just explains it more, us dumb hicks who cling to our guns and religions will get it and realize what we really need to do as a nation is admit:
WE SUCK!
And everything will be fine!
Let’s all be Charlie Brown at Halloween, “I got a rock”.

Utopia Awaits US! 🙂
