Obama should be tried as a war criminal

Original post made by Mary, Country Fair, on Mar 19, 2011

We have got to get rid of Obama. We are now fighting wars in Iraq, Afghanistan (escalated by Obama), now Libya!!! What about Darfur? We are just helping the French get oil. In the meantime, our economy is in the tank, no jobs, huge debt, nuclear problem in Japan, and our President starts a war while he is vacationing in Rio after having played a little golf and got his basketball picks in.

Obama is the worst president we have ever had bar none. He makes Jimmy Carter look like George Washington. I am glad to see Obama is letting Hillary run the show. At least it shows he knows he is lacking in ability and she should have been President anyway. I hope that piece of s......t stays in South America.

He makes Hans look like Franz, and Charo look like frickin' Zamfir! And what's teh deal with letting the Secretary of State speak up in international affairs? Clearly he don'know how this all works!

IF Obama was born in the US that would be differant, but Glen Beck says hes almost as bad as Woodreau Wilson (I hate that guy!) so we must impeach him!

Mary, thantks for pointing out his war crimes!

Do you understand *why* President Obama is in Brazil? The Chinese government is courting Brazil and trying to forge economic alliances with that country in order to use Brazil as a vast, untapped market for its exports. China is also looking to Brazil to tap its considerable natural resources for China's manufacturing processes. Far from "a sightseeing pleasure trip", this is a very important and necessary state mission, where our head of state travels to a country to strengthen the bonds between the two large nations.

Think beyond the Fox Box for a few seconds and you might see the bigger picture... perhaps (most probably) if Obama had not gone to Brazil now and China "won" in Brazil, the naysayers would be criticizing Obama two years from now for NOT having gone to Brazil.

From every measurable category his presidency is a disaster. We are now in 3 wars, 2 of which are his and the 3rd war Bush had won before he left office and he continues it. Unemployment is at record and sustained highs, I could go on and on but let me leave everyone with one thought.............what has he been successful in doing? Name one POSITIVE thing which has transpired, just one.

It is all about the oil. Why do we get involved with Lybia an look the other way with regards to the current repression in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia?

We highlight and follow our principals only when convenient.

I couldn't agree with you more about its about the oil except in cannot figure out what in the world Obama is doing in Afghanistan and even if we win what do we get out of it. The whole middleast is going up in flames and he picks Libya to draw a line in the sand with. I wonder he will do when the house of saud fails and it looks like that will be coming soon. I think Anwar and the Gulf of Mexico are looking better and better right now.

"oil play" makes sense, considering Carter Doctrine( outside forces ) and the Reagan Corollary(internal forces) were built around it.
Have to wonder if the rest of the middle east so confident, as some of us, that the west won't suddenly decide to step in?

To Couldn't Find - this is one of those issues that has not been spelled out and beaten to death on the networks, but one which takes just a little reading between the lines by intelligent folks. Google "China Brazil trade" and you'll see the rapid increase in China's trade advantage there and how the US can be left behind, if we don't make the effort now.

Couldn't Find,

This little trip of his has nothing to do with trade but rather an opportunity to get out of Washington when it is getting hot there. This is his mode of operation. When the going gets tough he is nowhere to be found. Nice little vacation for Obambi, wife, daughters, mother in law, and god mother on our nickel or what we have left in the way of a nickel. I wish like others that he would just quit.

Mary, Hoppy, Golf, Pietra are living examples of why we need to support teachers in this country as best we can. No more idiocracy. No more idiots. (Do you think 'Couldn't find' has found it yet? Do think think 'Couldn't find' could locate a clue if his life depended on it?) Take a good look. This is what your brain looks like when fed on bad education and ignorance. These dullards are the types who are voting NO on E. It isn't pretty.
