PSBO Calls America Arrogant, Dismissive & Derisive....Well Aren't We Lucky That He Has Come On The Scene To Redeem Us

PSBO's actions today have me a bit perplexed. He holds a Townhall meeting in France which is just wacky on so many levels. Is he pandering to the Europeans? If so, why? Is he just a narcissist? But then to add insult to injury he tells Europe that America fails to appreciate them and that America is arrogant, dismissive and derisive. Aren't we lucky to have such a patriotic potus?

Uhmmmm I'm with Brother Komrade, The Bush administration was VERY dismissive of Europe, and VERY Arrogant, and hell, I am for unilaterilism but Bush nem to that WWWWAAYYYYY to far.

If PSBO had called Europeans "Arrogant, Dismissive & Derisive" he'd be right. Work with Europeans some time. In an environment where you can't touch them, their true colors show up nice and bright.

I wonder if people will be more upset with the Dixie Chicks for what they did or for Obama for what he did.

I certainly didn't sign on to his collective apology. Please forgive us for not falling all over ourselves to gain Europe's approval for everything we do. What other continent full of countries do we have to beg for approval? Africa, Asia? South America? Fiji?

I rather enjoyed whatever his name is' comments. Ha Ha.

So thankful my ancestors left there long ago.

Go America! Yay!

Trust me my American friends...coming from this Canadian, your arrogance and haughtiness isn't near the level of the Europeans..in particular the French....

America as a country and people would rank as the most humble people in the West...certainly there are loud mouth Americans and certainly you do have some swagger...and rightly so....

America has been the most benign decent superpower in human history....

If you want to see arrogance and brutality, check out the marxist nations and the thankfully short lived nazi german empire...

Europe, in particular Western Europe, should be apologizing to America for its rudeness...

Alas, obama is a socialist appeaser...I wish he wasn't ...but he is what he is...and you will see him do these stupid things for the next 44 months until he is thankfully thrown out ala Jimmy Carter...ha ha...

Keep up the good work

Your bro in Canada

Karauthammer's opening remarks are right on the money. America would not be so dismissive of Europe, if Europe wasn't so dismissive of itself.

For the last half century they have collectively decided to wallow in the false comforts of the Nanny State. There is just no waking them up, so why bother?

DJ Black Adam said...

Look, I'd be the first to point out the snobbish and sometimes ungrateful attitude of the Europeans, and in particular the French, BUT I also have to admit, that the CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN Administration of GW Bush went WAAYYYY Overboard in their dismissive attitude to our Western Allies.

But of course, you righties, just like lefties, cannot or will not self examine.

JudyBright said...

Now, let me explain.

This post was not about our ole' buddy, George W Bush. I understand that Obama was referencing him while in Europe when he called the USA dismissive and arrogant.

A new administration should not go to a foreign country and "air our dirty laundry" so to speak. Some Americans think Bush was arrogant with Europe, some think he was just fine. I don't see leaders from other countries coming here to apologize for the behavior of previous regimes, and I think it's ridiculous that our President would do the same over there.

@Judy:

"A new administration should not go to a foreign country and "air our dirty laundry" so to speak."

Uhmmm. I think the last 8 years did more than air it, it flew the dirty laundry up a flag pole and expected us to salute it...

You're not my 'bro', Devon. Keep your well-wishes to yourself.

@DJBA

Did you intentionally miss my point? What are you talking about other than you don't like Bush?
