International Rock Star President Barack Obama Now Seen as Incompetent and a Rank Amateur by the World
Hey Europe and the International community, how’s that Barack Obama “Hopey, Changey” stuff working out for you? It appears about the same as it is for Americans. 2012 cannot get here fast enough.
From Mort Zuckerman of US News & World Report comes this revelation regarding the “Chosen One,” Barack Hussein Obama … ‘World Sees Obama as Incompetent and Amateur’. You mean they are finally just noticing now? Let this be a lesson to America and the World, hype does not make experience, a leader or a President. It was not to long ago that Europe was rooting for a Barack Obama victory … my how The One’s image has fallen.
The reviews of Obama’s performance have been disappointing. He has seemed uncomfortable in the role of leading other nations, and often seems to suggest there is nothing special about America’s role in the world. The global community was puzzled over the pictures of Obama bowing to some of the world’s leaders and surprised by his gratuitous criticisms of and apologies for America’s foreign policy under the previous administration of George W. Bush. One Middle East authority, Fouad Ajami, pointed out that Obama seems unaware that it is bad form and even a great moral lapse to speak ill of one’s own tribe while in the lands of others.
Barack Obama’s apology tour is hardly the show of American Presidential strength that Europe and out allies were looking for. So in the end, the World did prefer a “cowboy” after all, eh? As Newsbusters reminds us, from top to bottom, the Obama Administration are legislators, not leaders and they lack the competence for the positions they hold. It is no coincidence that Obama is “Lost in Smallness” and unable to lead … he never has, why would any one have thought he suddenly could on the grandest scale?
The end result is that a critical mass of influential people in world affairs who once held high hopes for the president have begun to wonder whether they misjudged the man. They are no longer dazzled by his rock star personality and there is a sense that there is something amateurish and even incompetent about how Obama is managing U.S. power. For example, Obama has asserted that America is not at war with the Muslim world. The problem is that parts of the Muslim world are at war with America and the West.
Obama feels, fairly enough, that America must be contrite in its dealings with the Muslim world. But he has failed to address the religious intolerance, failing economies, tribalism, and gender apartheid that together contribute to jihadist extremism. This was startling and clear when he chose not to publicly support the Iranians who went to the streets in opposition to their oppressive government, based on a judgment that our support might be counterproductive. Yet, he reaches out instead to the likes of Bashar Assad of Syria, Iran’s agent in the Arab world, sending our ambassador back to Syria even as it continues to rearm Hezbollah in Lebanon and expands its role in the Iran-Hezbollah-Hamas alliance.
The German newspaper Speigel asks, Will Obama Be the ‘Jimmy Carter of the 21st Century’? Will he, it appears he already is. Or as Fauta’s Blog states, Germany was for him, before they were against him. Many in the US have already begun to make the comparison of Obama to Carter’s failed one term presidency. Even those at liberal MSNBC have stated that Obama has made “Carteresque” mistakes.
Thank you Barack Hussein Obama and all those who conned the American public into voting for your fraudulent moderate, reach across the aisle hope & change. This President is an abject failure in the United States and looked upon as a rank amateur by the world. 2012 cannot get here fast enough.

America right now appears to be unreliable to traditional friends, compliant to rivals, and weak to enemies. One renowned Asian leader stated recently at a private dinner in the United States, “We in Asia are convinced that Obama is not strong enough to confront his opponents, but we fear that he is not strong enough to support his friends.”
The United States for 60 years has met its responsibilities as the leader and the defender of the democracies of the free world. We have policed the sea lanes, protected the air and space domains, countered terrorism, responded to genocide, and been the bulwark against rogue states engaging in aggression. The world now senses, in the context of the erosion of America’s economic power and the pressures of our budget deficits, that we will compress our commitments. But the world needs the vision, idealism, and strong leadership that America brings to international affairs. This can be done and must be done. But we are the only ones who can do it.
Welcome to Obamaland and nothing but campaign promises that have fallen on the lies of a socialist and Marxist agenda where Obama has no understanding of the role of the United States in the world or the office of the US Presidency … that is why we we refer to Obama as “Lost in Smallness”.
