Obama Summed Up in One Picture

If you want to know what's going through someone's head, find out what they're reading:

obamazakaria.jpg

The book is The Post-American World by Fareed Zakaria. It exults in America's decline as the Third World becomes the only world.

Obama is doing everything in his power to make this world real.

Obama is by far the most evil and sinister low-life no account sidewinding owl hoot to ever by it WASHINGTON D.C.(DISTRICT of CRINIMALS)

At least Clinton knew how to pretend to be "middle of the road", by carrying that supersize stage prop Bible around.
Obamers makes no pretense... just carries his anti-American lit out in the open...
you can almost see what page he's on...
with finger as bookmark, he doesn't want to lose his place...
ugh!

This should not surprise anyone. As I said on my blog yesterday, Obama's pre-campaign associations with Ayers and Wright were precursors to what we could expect from him as President.

Never before have we had an anti-American President. Until now.

Does his delusion override his own ego?

Is he so unconcerned about his own legacy that he will lead us down this path towards being just-another-member of the United Nations? Does he intend to be the last elected President of the United States, to please his high lord - George Soros and the spirit of Saul Alinsky?

This (America) is not his culture; he has no stake in its survival. We are led by an internationalist who believes our power coupled to our sovereign interest to be a negative force in the world. Our President sympathizes with an Islamic culture that is committed to world domination. It cannot be a good thing for a nation to be led by a post-nationalist.

Posted by: Beef at April 20, 2009 8:18 AM

WTF does he think he's doing? Does he think he's so far above suspicion, that even carrying an anti-American book can't faze him? Wow, I'm amazed at this, yet, not one Obamamania news station will even address this.

Hell in a handbasket folks, hell in a handbasket.

I'm impressed that he's reading period; and its something besides his (2) autobiographies.

Its anti-American drivel but c'mon.
What do you expect a man of low capacity to read? Milton Friedman?

Obama is just a Chicago street punk dressed up in high priced suits.

According to the web site, ....

"This is not a book about the decline of America, but rather about the rise of everyone else." So begins Fareed Zakaria's important new work on the era we are now entering. Following on the success of his best-selling The Future of Freedom, Zakaria describes with equal prescience a world in which the United States will no longer dominate the global economy, orchestrate geopolitics, or overwhelm cultures. He sees the "rise of the rest"—the growth of countries like China, India, Brazil, Russia, and many others—as the great story of our time, and one that will reshape the world. The tallest buildings, biggest dams, largest-selling movies, and most advanced cell phones are all being built outside the United States. This economic growth is producing political confidence, national pride, and potentially international problems. How should the United States understand and thrive in this rapidly changing international climate? What does it mean to live in a truly global era? Zakaria answers these questions with his customary lucidity, insight, and imagination.

Yeah, right....Why would the President of the United States of America want to read that!!

God help us all.

He should try reading the Constitution - OMB

Posted by: OMB at April 20, 2009 8:47 AM

Gee Andrea, you might want to actually read the book.

Fareed Zakaria essentially sees a move from Reagan-style conservativism in which the U.S. realized some of its best technological, business and financial progress to a new-world order in which countries move uniformly. The U.S. must adapt to this in order to continue to exert influence.

What you have then is a political platform for a global economy which invokes the need for a world currency, more U.N. influence (such that it is), wackyness like the Kyoto treaty, global technology transfer with the gradual elimination of contracts and patents, and with greater cooperation between partners (read: interest-free loans from the have to the have-nots).

Although this is a nightmare scenario, if you can see Hillary Clinton smiling through it all, you're onto something.

Of course, millions of Obamaroids desperately want any kind of new world order because eventually, they see their gas tanks being filled and their rent payed by someone else.

"Yeah, right....Why would the President of the United States of America want to read that!!"

Why would he waste his important time on such a trivial writer? The next thing you know he'll be toting around the latest from Thomas Friedman.

Can any of you IMAGINE the thunderous screaming, claw scraping on blackboards, howl of rage should President Bush have been seen reading say "Godless" by Ann Coulter or "Liberalism is a Mental Disorder" by Dr. Michael Savage? I'm beginning to think a revolution of the sort France experienced might be interesting, if only to see some of the press burned at the F*CKING STAKE!

H realy bothers me i mean he could very well be a BORG

Posted by: Flu-Bird at April 20, 2009 11:35 AM

Remind me if I'm mistaken here, but I vaguely recall that upon sighting of Bush reading The Black Book of Communism (where the French document the millions of deaths under Communist dictatorships over the 20th cent), the MSM went into hyperventilation-silent scream mode.

Posted by: Fiberal at April 20, 2009 11:37 AM

To me, the only surprising thing here is that the book wasn't authored by Barak Hussein Obama.

In short - what world would we live in if America didn't exert its influence in the world? Is this really what we want? I for one would prefer the light over the darkness of what is out there, in Africa, in South and Central America, the poverty, the mob rule, the oligarchies.

Lets imagine a world were America didn't participate in WWII. In Korea, or in Vietnam, or in Grenada. In Panama or in El Salvador. Where it didn't exert its influence upon Haiti in a time of crisis, or give millions in aid and assistance.

This is precisely the liberal paradox. The so called compassion for the poor, the wrong, and the victimized is really only a disguise for the reverse - a hatred for successful, responsible, and the caring. If it was up to the liberal, there would be nothing after diplomacy, just more diplomacy and inaction.

Sorry, but the rise of the third world into the global economy is more the result of US influence, freedom, and capitalism than it is "post-Americanism" or anti-Americanism.

"The tallest buildings, biggest dams, largest-selling movies, and most advanced cell phones are all being built outside the United States."

Yes, the "tallest buildings" are being built, among other places, in Panama, to launder cash, using millions in drug money, while the streets and infrastructure is falling apart, where there is no metro trains or modern transportation systems.

The "biggest dams" are being built in places like China, because gee whiz, the biggest populations in the world are there.

The "largest-selling movies" are made in America and filmed everywhere in the world, duh.

The "most advanced cell phones are being built outside the United States" (in countries where they don't care about paying people decent wages), using the designs, research, development and technology from the United States of America and its well-paid, well-educated scientists, students, and workforce, thank you very much.

The USSR failed. So did all of its puppies.

Obama will be forever know in history for economic failure and creating the biggest successful 'Black Market' the USA has ever had.

Well said! Eloquent and accurate.

Partially off-topic: After going out of his way to meet Chavez, Obama snubs Netenyahu.

I don't think Jimmy hated America when he was president. I just think he was your average weak kneed liberal clown. Obama is another story. He's clearly trying to remake this country into a euro-socialist nanny state of sorts. He truly believes you can give the world a warm hug, and they will love us.

Flattery will get you everywhere. That sh**bag is going to write the sequel.
