Barack Obama: Our First Weirdo President

Tom Roeser, On the Other Hand

Many presidents have, on occasion, done weird things—only one president of the 44 is Weird.

Our current 44th.

On the night before his abdication Nixon (the 37th) went from public room to public room in the downstairs White House saying goodbye to the portraits on the wall (“Bye-bye James Madison…John Quincy Adams!”)…He had weird episodes but was not ipso facto Weird with a capital W. In fact he was the cockeyed genius who split in twain the dread Sino-Soviet twin-headed bloc…for which in liberal-written history books he has been given insufficient credit…

Verdict: He could be weird but was not Weird.

And then we get to 44.

The difference: He is—and embodies–Weird.

Previous presidents had no trouble spelling out their belief in God.

Not so Number 44.

No previous presidents bowed to foreign potentates.

Not so Number 44 who bowed deferentially to the King of Saudi Arabia….then after being criticized, bowed waist-down to Japan’s emperor and empress—both rulers of color.

All presidents since Roe v. Wade were either totally against killing babies in the womb or ambiguously compliant urging abortions “safe [sic]… and rare.” Like Clinton.

Except Number 44.

This year in a celebratory statement for Roe he declared it protects women “from governmental intrusion.”

Even Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a raving pro-abort, ex-ACLUer says catapulting the issue to the Supremes was an act of legal folly, short-circuiting the process by which she hoped legislatures one after another would legalize the procedure so as not to precipitate the national crisis of division we have endured since. By the Court interfering, it preempted the people. Not governmental intrusion?

Ginsburg’s as liberal as one can get.

But she can’t touch Old 44 who’s got a hold on Weird.

As Illinois state senate judiciary chair he killed the Born Alive bill that would have mandated nutrition, medicines and humane comfort be accorded to babies born live from botched abortions. Call him the walking embodiment of King Herod with a light touch.

The fact he’s so remorseless shows he’s unconcerned not unaware of the magnanimity of his deed.

Like a gerbil sans conscience, he had his two daughters show Chinese President Hu Jintao their command of Chinese—their genially smiling father unconcerned that the Chinese government has forced women to have abortions under the “one-child policy” forcing urban dwellers to abort, punishing second pregnancies with forced sterilization with particular disdain to female infants through abortion, purposeful neglect, willful abandonment and infanticide known to be imparted to girl babies.

Later, displaying baleful unconcern he praised Hu: “While it’s easy to focus on our difference of culture, let us never forget the values that our people share: a reverence for family…and, most of all, the desire to give our children a better life.”[Italics mine].

That’s what Weird is, folks.

A Bizzaro World Foreign Policy

Susan Stamper Brown,

Red Carpet. Camera flashes. Black ties. Fine China. Hollywood celebrities. Colgate smiles. All the bells and whistles you’d expect for a visiting Head of State, albeit dictator, Hu Jintao. Sure, China has oppressed Tibet for decades and the rights of women even longer, but it’s hard to bite the hand that feeds you – especially when you are guest for dinner.

The noted Nobel Peace Prize recipient, President Barack Obama, pulled out all the stops for Hu when he served poached lobster, organic greens and apple pie. Obama’s little more than obligatory foreign policy comments during his State of the Union address gave indication there will be no tough stance on China, or even a clear substantive plan on how to reduce our dependency on and ties to a nation that serves as a sort of global Fannie Mae….

Obama: Red China’s “Evolution” on Human Rights?

Fred Lucas,

President Barack Obama said on Wednesday that there has been “evolution” in human rights in China over the last three decades, even though that country does not allow for freedom of the press or freedom of religion, continues to imprison political dissidents (notably Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo) and is run by the Communist Party.

“And I want to suggest that there has been an evolution in China over the last 30 years since the first normalization of relations between the United States and China,” Obama said. “And my expectation is that 30 years from now we will have seen further evolution and further change.”

During a joint White House news conference with Obama and Chinese President President Hu Jintao, a reporter asked Obama, “Can you explain to the American people how the United States can be so allied with a country that is known for treating its people so poorly, for using censorship and force to repress its people? Do you have any confidence that as a result of this visit that will change?”

Obama said he and the Chinese president had discussed human rights at length.

“China has a different political system than we do,” Obama said. “China is at a different stage of development than we are. We come from very different cultures with very different histories. But, as I’ve said before and I repeated to President Hu, we have some core views as Americans about the universality of certain rights–freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly–that we think are very important and that transcend cultures.”
