The content of the post was about more than just "balloons".

As a whole, my response "for such decisions" was right on topic. Those neglected issues posted by jack as well as all the other issues that have been listed. In totality, obama's appeasement policies are dangerous.

He is weakening America by his incessant need to apologize for Her. In every city, in every country he has been to, that is the gist of his speeches.

When has a president ever toured the world denigrating his own nation?
Well, that was slightly more specific, but, then again, it is once more based on half truths. President Obama id not aplogize to anyone, if you can dig up one apology maybe someone would listen. The fact of the matter is he stated the truth in that the American government has not always done the right thing, that is not an apology, just stating a fact.
As for those that support OUR President, we are not blind and some of disagree with some of his policies but at the same time many of us will not sit by and say nothing when others make false statements or make accusations that are not backed up by the facts. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but keep in mind that when you post your opinion here others will give theirs also, maybe if you supplied more actual facts to back up your claims you would not get the same reactions.

Just read his speeches on foreign soil, at the UN. If you haven't gotten it by now, I doubt you will.

This is a little summary and there is plenty more analysis of his speeches - just google it.

A few clips taken out of context, plus a whole lot of accusations with no backup.

The appearance in Washington last week of Iran's foreign minister, while the blood is not yet dry from his government's continuing suppression of student protests, is a reminder of the disastrous foreign policy path the Obama administration has chosen

In Honduras, we back the Hugo Chávez acolyte.....

In Eastern Europe, we discard a missile defense agreement with Poland and the Czechs.....

High-ranking American officials have made six visits to Syria.....

The highest ranking U.S. official to visit Cuba in decades....
More on the appeasement of our enemies and the supplication of America, by obama.

Hot Air » Blog Archive » Who lost France?

Quote:
Barack Obama campaigned on restoring America’s standing with its allies, accusing the outgoing Bush administration of insulting and alienating our closest friends with his alleged unilateralism. How has Obama done as President?

Obama has damaged relations with the UK, France, the Czech Republic, and Poland, which even Joe Biden was forced to admit yesterday. Instead, Obama has focused his friendlier attention on Russia and Iran. What has Obama and the US received in return? Laughter over Hillary Clinton’s amateurish “reset button” and zero cooperation on Iranian nuclear weapons.
ANALYSIS - Disappointed Sarkozy shifts gaze from Washington | World | Reuters

Quote:
PARIS (Reuters) - French President Nicolas Sarkozy, initially dubbed Sarko the American for his pro-U.S. stance, is finding it much tougher to deal with Washington than he had anticipated and is recalibrating his policies accordingly.
Is this what obama meant when he said he would "reset" relations?

He would throw the allies under the bus and embrace every dictator, oppressor and murdering regime around the world?

Smart power.

Perhaps, sanrene, you could provide us a link to what Joe Biden actually said, not some RW interpretation of it. Pretty please?
