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.

"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.

I don't think Obama is a

I don't think Obama is a racist by definition. Probably just an angry 1/2 black man with some deep bitterness towards caucasians in general.

There are tons of people with biases, prejudices, and bigotries; but very few true racists on the whole. When you look around at the truly bright and successful people of all ethnicities, it flies in the face of common sense to be racist. Plenty of bigots, but few racists.

"And I find it funny that
Unpublished

"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."

You probably do find that it is funny.

But since you feel so self-righteous, or is it self-centered, as to want to cast stones about hypocracy, and you either won't, or either you can't, distinguish between laws of taking native American's land and the ethics of taking the native American's land, what hope is there for you?
------------------------------------------------------
"dah, Don't forget, those native Americans also immigrated here."

That's true. Those in the northern continent are thought mostly, if not completely, to have come out of Asia across the Siberian strait, and reached about halfway into out Southern continent. (But, they weren't taking anybody's land from them - as did our good European ancestors).

If you're interested in a really good history of this, I recommend the book "1491", by Charles Mann.

What happened to the people who were here before the migration across the Siberian peninsula?

Unpublished

You may be right, chascushman, but it doesn't change the fact that t3bledsoe was the one who claimed that simply bringing up someone's race makes one a racist, so the point is the same.

"So now dahreese knows how people feel?"

Which is it?

You either won't, or either can't, distinguish between laws of taking native American's land and the ethics of taking the native American's land?

We are talking about laws....and if you are so ethical, when are you going to leave? Besides, I thought liberals wanted to leave ethics and morality out of the law....such as abortion.

The mention of Native Americans

"We are a nation of immigrents." The caucasion race has A LOT to answer for being crual down through the centuries. First, we take what we want from Native Americans at the business end of a gun. We owned Black Americans like cattle and demanded that they do the work that would have killed us to do. Now, we treat the Canadian workers MUCH, MUCH better than the Mexicans ! How much more wrong will we do, "In the name of freedom" ??!!

I'll leave here under one of two circumstances;

When Jews leave Palestine;

When you set the same standard of ethics for yourself as you're setting for me and others on here who disagree with you.

You like to huff and puff and always ask somebody to "prove" something to you, or to tell/ask them to leave the country if they do not agree with its foreign/domestic policies as you think they ought to work, but that's because you can't apply the difference between laws and ethics to yourself.

You do know the difference between laws and ethics?

What do we do different to
Unpublished

What do we do different to Canadians. What specifically? And since when does anyone have to answer for things that they themselves did not do? I never owned anyone, nor has any living American.

And dahrees, this comment is utter nonsense that deserves no response.

@t3bledsoe

The question is appropriate; You do know the difference between laws and ethics?

Maybe you could give HumbleAngela a little help....
