INEFFECTUAL, invisible, unable to honour pledges and now blamed for letting Gaddafi off the hook. Why Obama’s gone from ‘Yes we can’ to ‘Er, maybe we shouldn’t’…
Interesting take on the son of a goat herder from Kenya – I did a google search on Barack’s Effective Leadership as seen by foreign papers. All the positive ones are from 2008 and a few in 2009. The foreign press is not impressed in 2010 or this year. Not that they matter so much, they don’t vote. But the change in global perception is striking. However, now that he is heaving cruise missiles around, I’m sure he will burnish his tarnished image.
Prior to the Missiles of March, Obama chartered a ferry to pick up stranded US citizens. Not wanting to send the wrong message, not one military conveyance of any kind was sent. Meanwhile, the Brits overreacted with a Navy Frigate, the Germans sent three warships with 600 soldiers and the Chinese sent a warship to support the evacuation of its citizens.
Here is a picture of President Obama busy mapping out the logistics of
Operation Swing Low Sweet Ferry Boat.
I was glad to see his interest in the NCAA brackets, though. A man of the people, that one. Ψ
