How can anyone forget Obama’s famous apology tour in 2009 as he went through Europe apologizing for America? There is no doubt that Obama does not hold America up as the shining light on a hill as Reagan did. Mr. Obama was asked in Europe if he believes in American exceptionalism. He said he did in the same way that “the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks in Greek exceptionalism.” That’s another way of saying, “No.”
Mr. Obama told the French that America “has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive” toward Europe. In Prague, he said America has “a moral responsibility to act” on arms control because only the U.S. had “used a nuclear weapon.” In London, he said that decisions about the world financial system were no longer made by “just Roosevelt and Churchill sitting in a room with a brandy” — as if that were a bad thing. And in Latin America, he said the U.S. had not “pursued and sustained engagement with our neighbors” because we “failed to see that our own progress is tied directly to progress throughout the Americas.”
Obama, is the complete opposite of what an American President should be, he believes that by lowering America, more people around the world will embrace us, that could not be farther from the truth. The only thing Obama has done is make us less respected around the world and with making us less respected, he has also made us less safe. His desire for popularity has led Mr. Obama to embrace bad policies, blaming America for the world financial crisis.
His apology tour was unprecedented because no other President had been so critical of his country on foreign soil. It was a strange way for President Obama to begin his term as he upset millions of Americans who see this nation not as arrogant, but as a beacon of hope and freedom for the oppressed around the world.
But his apology tour still continues, it has been reported that U.S. and Afghan officials have reached a tentative agreement on a critical security pact which would include President Obama writing a letter to the Afghan people acknowledging mistakes during the “war on terror.” According to Reuters, an Afghan spokesman said Tuesday that Obama agreed to write the letter, to be presented with the draft security pact at a meeting of tribal elders later this week.
Not only does President Karzai get an apology, he also won a key security agreement from the United States that promised joint action, political, economic, or military against anyone attacking Afghanistan or giving safe haven to Afghan insurgents seeking to unseat the government.
He has also apologized for bombing Japan to end World War II and for U.S. actions in the Middle East and Africa. This President apologizes for everything, that is almost everything. How about apologizing for all his failed policies that have kept America in a stalled economy, people are making less income now than when he became President.
All his policies have been a disaster for our country, from cash for clunkers to Obama-Care, why doesn’t he apologize for them? This President has done more to hurt the American people than any other President in my life time, that’s right, even Jimmy Carter.
