Obama's attitude shameful

  • Follow Letters

I read an article by Nile Gardiner, a former aide to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, in the London newspaper The Telegraph, titled “Will Barack Obama ever stop apologizing for America?”

Mr. Gardiner wrote: “I’ve just watched a clip of Obama’s speech in Mexico City, where the president blames the U.S.A. for the gun violence in Mexico. Is there no end to the apologies that President Obama has made for his own country? Instead of blaming America, Obama should have called on the Mexican government to do more to deal with the drug gangs and the lawlessness, which is spilling over the border into the U.S.A. Why not praise the courageous work of U.S. law enforcement agents fighting against Mexican drug cartels?

“It’s about time that Mr. Obama stood up for his own country instead of frequently talking America down and lowering its prestige on the world stage. Every apology Obama makes internationally weakens the United States.”

Obama made references to drugs, guns and violence in Mexico. Yet at no time did he mention how his attorney general, Eric Holder, executed the “Fast and Furious” policy in Mexico, where the U.S. Justice Department purchased guns and handed them over to drugs lords in Mexico.

Obama also apologized for our immigration system. Obama said, “We are a nation of laws, and like every nation we have the responsibility to ensure that our laws are upheld. But we also know that, as a nation of immigrants, the immigration system we have in the United States now doesn’t reflect our values.” Nowhere did he mention that the Mexican government encourages illegal immigration to the United States.

Obama is ashamed of this country, and I am ashamed to call him my president.

Apology

If the last paragraph with the quote is what the writer calls an apology, I need a new dictionary. It may be an observation made by the President with which one can disagree, but hardly an apology.

"Congress is not working for the good of the citizens of this country." That is an observation, not an apology.

"I am so sorry that I voted for a congressman who cared more about whether he and others were able to travel by air without delay rather than how the sequester effects average citizens. I am sorry and I won't vote for him/her again." That's my idea of an apology.

But we can agree to disagree.

I'm glad we can make observations!

Well I would observe that the Obama administration has gone out of its way to insure sequester disrupts people's lives. The Republican controlled house of Representative, who I am proud to say, voted to allow Obama to prioritize cuts from sequester. This would have allowed Obama to cut spending to redundant programs etc. instead of air traffic controls. Obama refused the offer. That was just an Observation. My opinion is he doesn't care about the average American; after all we are clinging to our Bibles and Guns! Oh did I mention Obama said during the debates sequester wouldn’t happen? Was he lying or ignorant, your call….

Now thes clowns in Obama's administration work for us. Is any one that voted for Obama going to apologize that people in Obama's administration more concerned about making the sequester hurt than conducting sequester in away to minimize the effect on those that need government the most...I'll wait

Mr. Bledsoe, it seems that you have no problem with our president going around the world apologizing for our country. What is "all soooo mind numbing" is the libs will not see the lying racist America hating Marxist/communist for what he really is. Mr. Bledsoe, the democrat party of your dad is NOT TODAY'S democrat party.

Obama has always believed

Obama has always believed that America is the source or root cause of most of the ills in not only this country but the world. He can't help himself especially when he is speaking before a groups in other countries. This is all he heard growing up from those who raised him. The documentary "Obama's America" is exactly correct. He and his wife Michelle don't like America thus " fundamental" change is necessary.

Did you ever notice

That liberals always tout what is bad about the United States and the Conservatives tout what is great about America?

This saying, "We are a nation of immigrates" does not really paint an accurate picture. It should be that "We are a country of LEGAL immigrants."

Why don't we adopt Mexico's policy and laws on immigrants? I'd be willing to do that.

No T3, Obama isn't making

No T3, Obama isn't making himself a racist by saying his mother was white. He is making himself a racist by saying his mother was "a TYPICAL WHITE WOMAN".

Here's something to un-numb the mind. Definition of racist - a person with a prejudiced belief that one race is superior to others.

By referring to his mother in a negative context as "typical white woman" then would that indicate that a typical white woman was less than say another type of woman. What exactly is a "typical white woman"?

A historically misinformed statement at its best;

"It should be that "We are a country of LEGAL immigrants."

Really?

Seems American history recalls that the people already living here, now described as "American indians", did not invite Europeans to take their land from them.

And now, the descendents of those "illegal immigrants" are hollering about "illegals?"

It became illegal immigration when laws were passed making it illegal to come here without meeting the requirements provided by those laws.

If we are going to debate the

If we are going to debate the morality of Europeans coming to America and taking over from the so-called native Americans, we also need to talk about all of the other people who have expanded their territory.

Let's start with the invasion of the Iberian peninsula, throw in some Roman invasions, don't forget the Huns. Human beings have a tendency to be nomadic. Always have been. Like animals, "they go where the food is." Some particularly go wherever to expand their territory.

And I find it funny that those who complain the most about "the white man" taking the native's land, are neither full blooded native American, nor are they leaving. Seems like typical hypocrisy to me.

"So now President obama is racist ??!!"
Mr. Bledsoe, yes Obama is a racist but it did not just start, he has been one most of his life. Obama's mentor from when he was 10 until he left for college at 18 was 'Frank' Marshall Davis. Davis was a radical racist communist and child molester from "CHICAGO". Obama wrote about 'Frank' in his book. Davis was friends in Chicago with Vernon Jarrett, Valerie Jarrett's father-in-law. If you do not know who Valerie Jarrett is look her up. Obama said he "disclaimed his mother's race" when he was 12 yrs. old. Obama has been a racist most of his life.
