world to america: drop dead

April 6, 2009

As President Obama finishes up his first official overseas trip, experts unanimously agree it’s been a colossal, epic, unprecedented disaster. He goes to the G-20 Summit, gets 1.1 trillion dollars from the IMF to go to emerging markets, or, to put it in terms Joe the Plumber can relate to, Obama’s doctrine of “share the wealth”. He forges an agreement to drastically increase regulation on an international scale, proving to his critics that he’s not a free-market kind of guy. Lastly, he negotiates a compromise between the French and Chinese in their disagreement over regulations on tax-havens. Americans hate peacemakers, just ask Jimmy Carter.

Next, he turns up at the NATO Conference, and even though he predicted he’d get no help from his European counterparts, they agreed to send 5,000 souls to join us in the morass that is known as the Afghanistan-Pakistan contingency initiative.

Lastly, the President visits the moderate Muslim democracy that actually doesn’t hate Israel: Turkey. He quotes an old Muslim proverb: “You can’t put out a fire with flames.” Sparking a fresh debate by some on the right that are whispering, “See, we told you he was a secret Muslim!” Of course, President Obama merely suggested that it was a necessary first step to develop better relations with all the players in the region.

Obama US Turkey

Bottom line, 59 percent of Americans said that the President’s trip has either not changed the world’s opinion of America, or have made it worse. Since we can’t poll the entire world, that will have to be the barometer with which to judge President Obama’s performance.

Look, I’m a progressive and I support the President wholeheartedly. I just wish the rest of the world would wait a little longer before condemning this man as the worst President in American history.
