NOTE: Recently a friend, George P., sent me a link on FB about Obama’s meeting with the Vietnamese President. During the “photo-op” that followed their meeting, Obama said a couple of pretty stupid things — one of which was covered in the item that George sent me. You may not like what I have to say about it; heck, it may make you angry. If you get angry at me, let me know in the comments below and THEN tell me which part of what I said struck a chord in you. If you like this blog post, share it; if you don’t like this blog post, share it and tell your friends what a jerk I am. I could use the publicity.
Barry, I’ve always kinda liked you. Yah, I know, you’re a politician and I’d rather have a sister in a whore house than a brother that’s a politician. But you’ve always struck me as a sort of down-to-earth, level headed guy.
Barry, you’ve screwed up now though and for the first time since you and I chatted backstage at the National Christmas Tree Lighting in D.C., I’m disappointed in you big time.
You’ve confused millions of Americans. You either have your head up your ass or you’re a moron; which is it?
Recently you had Vietnam’s President Truong Tan Sang and the missus over to The White House for a visit. With the press in the room, you said:
“We discussed the fact that Ho Chi Minh was actually inspired by the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and the words of Thomas Jefferson.”
Oh yah? Which one? Washington? Franklin? And in what way were they ‘inspired’?
Barry, you’ve got a dictator, Ho Chi Minh, who enslaved millions of his people. Starved his own constituents so they would bow to his wishes and then slaughtered 58,000+ Americans who were led into a war by — wait for it — another politician.
Ho denied basic liberties and freedoms to people that looked like him, talked like him, smelled like him and walked like him.
Now Barry, I know that Ho wrote a letter to Harry Truman where he talked about his “interest in cooperation” with the United States. I also realize that you were maybe just trying to be polite to a gook that was visiting the US, but c’mon.
You have just done a great job at trampling on the names of over 58,000 men and women whose names are engraved on black granite just two miles from where your ass is sitting right now.
A few of them were my friends Barry, and you’ve really pissed me off.
Your inane remarks really irritate me and iIt makes me wonder why we spent millions of dollars to put another black guy into public housing — twice.
While your candy ass was sitting in the classroom, men were fighting and dying in rice paddies NOT to protect the “American way of life”, but rather just to stay alive.
Ask anyone that was there and they will tell you they were NOT fighting for “truth, justice and the American Way”, they’ll tell you they were fighting to protect their buddy that was next to them.
And I’ll say it again; they were sent there by another candyass politician who wouldn’t have the sense to pour piss out of a boot if the instructions were written on the heel.
Barry, it’s not Edward Snowden or Bradly Manning that are “enemies of the state”. it’s bankers, lawyers and yah, politicians like you that are dragging the country down into thrid world status quicker than snot down a sliding board.
Right now I’m in Argentina watching another third rate politician screw her country with her words and actions. I’ve got evidence that she is taking bribes from the drug cartels to throw open the borders of the second largest country in South America and I’m starting to wonder.
Do they have some kind of finishing school that they send politicians to after they’re elected and before they take over? Is there some kind of graduation that celebrates this milestone?
There must be, because I can’t believe all politicians are as dumb as you and Kirchner.
So c’mon Barry, grow a pair. Tell the American people that you stuck your foot in your mouth and apologize.
By the way Barry, you DO remember that all of the ‘founding fathers’ owned slaves, right?
