Obama's Apology Tour Was Crafted
By Handful Of Radical Advisors

Investors Business Daily, by Paul Sperry

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 10/25/2012 5:40:13 AM

President Obama indignantly denied Mitt Romney's charge in Monday's final debate that his foreign policy amounts to "an apology tour" around the world. "This has been probably the biggest whopper that's been told during the course of this campaign," Obama protested. "And every fact-checker and every reporter who's looked at it, governor, has said this is not true." In fact, the president has followed a "doctrine of mea culpa" crafted by a handful of radical advisers who have urged him to, in so many words, apologize for America's war on terror and nuclear superiority.

Here's a cabal of "malignant narcissists" who have an agenda against America, living inside the democratic party, at the top of the inner circle of "doers" who are out to destroy this country.

They are the evil...

I hope America has learned a very dear lesson - vet, vet, vet. While it is impossible to control who the President really listens to, Congress can control who gets paid to talk to him/her if they have offices and budgets.

These are just 4 of the many radical leftists that are driving US domestic and foreign policy. The EPA's Lisa Jackson and her environmental justice claque are just as damaging, as is Eric Holder's DoJ. Hopefully, these political appointees will disappear in January. Key for Romney will be removing several thousand who have been hired as civil service, where termination is almost impossible. Mitt spoke of using attrition to reduce federal workforce, which means that Obama's 25 to 50 year old leftist freaks will be there for years.

Now that these idiots have seen the results of their naivete, I wonder if they've seen that their liberal ideology doesn't work. Personally, I wish all these people who love the communist/islamic ideologieswould just move to these countries and leave us alone!

The most telling comment mr hussein obama made in the apology tour timeframe was his response to a question about American exceptionalism.
He curled his upper lip into that sneer that people mistake as a smile, and said approximately this -
'sure, we think we are exceptional, but so does belgium...'
He really doesn't understand the concept, probably in part because of his formative years spent in indonesia, and in part from his radical mother, and his real father, frank marshall davis.

Glen Beck tried to warn us. Apparently, as I understand it, Mr. Ailes got an invitation to a dinner "meeting" and soon thereafter Mr. Beck got the boot.

God bless Glen(n?) for trying. He did do more to educate and enlighten people about this president and his "advisores" than anyone else.

I hope PRESIDENT Romney makes good on his alleged "gaffe" when he said "I like firing people...". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSzeDmKkNcw

He could start with every US attorney hired in the ChoomGangsta's administration, then move to the EPA, then work his way through every federal department and agency. This will impact unemployment stats, but it'll be worth it. Let the lawsuits pile up.....

First, show me one "fact checker" or reporter who "checked" on whether or not the POTUS engaged in an "apology tour". Oh, I see. Zero? (Because it's not a "fact" that can be checked, but a pattern of tone and behavior that has been observed.) Well, then I suppose the same zero folks who checked could have called it untrue. I'm sorry Mr. President, but waving your hands and screaming "Get the transcript Candy!" does not undo four years of misery and malfeasance. History--and the American people--will check your performance, not your "facts." And your performance has been a whopper, indeed.

Regarding the post which suggests that the media has learned the importance of vetting, I have NO doubt that Obama was thoroughly vetted by all Old Media press and alphabet colluders. They had to be thoroughly organized in their joined efforts, in order to practice the group propaganda, a crime which became necessary when facts began to surface.

Old Media may be more evil than The Won and his anti-Americas czardom.

Interesting that these "egg heads" are so stupid. Especially, the damaging Mrs. Cass Sunstein, Susan Power, who is an incredible war hen hawk, urging that troops be sent to every corner of the globe to uphold her flawed U.N. policy of Response to Intervene. Her hands are filthy with the blood of our youthful "treasure". Criminal activities that are applauded in the Harvard faculty lounge. How far our once lauded Universities have fallen. What hotbeds of Marxism and blame America first they have become.

Mistake #1:

"Instituting a doctrine of mea culpa would enhance our credibility by showing that American decision-makers do not endorse the sins of their predecessors."

What sins is Samantha Powers talking about?

Mistake #2:

"The president must ask Americans to acknowledge to ourselves and to the world that we have made serious, even tragic, mistakes in the aftermath of Sept. 11 — in invading Iraq, in condoning torture and flouting international law, and in denying the very existence of global warming," Slaughter said.

Aside from all the pacifist folderol, when did denying the global warming hoax become a crime, something to apologize for?

Mistake #3:

Obama apologized for the war on terror, lamenting "it led us to act contrary to our ideals."

It did? I thought defending ourselves was one of our "ideals"?

Mistake #4:

Rashad Hussain. The White House adviser-turned Mideast envoy helped Obama kick off his apology tour in 2009 with a remorseful speech to Muslims in Cairo that he helped draft...Hussain also helped engineer the Muslim Brotherhood's rise to power in Egypt as Obama's envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, a powerful bloc of 57 Muslim governments that some say is a caliphate in the making....Hussain regularly spoke to Brotherhood front groups and defended convicted terrorists.

They laughed at Glenn Beck when he talked about a "caliphate" in America. It appears he was right. Not only are they here, they're in this POTUS' Administration in places of power, easily able to influence this POTUS' Muslim-friendly worldview.

The inmates have taken over the asylum.

Don't stumble over Obama while he is bowing in front of a plethora of foreign leaders. At one point I think he mistakenly bowed in front of a palace door man. And every fact-checker and every reporter who's looked at it are only the reporters and fact checkers on MSNBC. Also, how many of Obama's henchmen are discribed as "RADICAL" in spite of their nefarious backgrounds?

Normal Americans who don't live among these sorts of anti-American, blame America First, Moral Equivalence, radicals don't realize how much sway they hold in media centers and in the Academy. But I have lived among them all my life. I know how they think. To them, an apology tour is the LEAST America could do but because this groveling of the USA is inimical to normal Americans, when the President denies he did it, they are inclined to believe him.

Okay, so we know he did do an apology tour (he even tried to apologize for ending WWII and the JAPANESE THEMSELVES told him not to--Harry Truman would punch him in the nose), we know he bows to foreign leaders and all this is supposed to convey a "new kind of diplomacy and friendship." But it doesn't. It conveys weakness. In the Cairo apology speech, Obama gave the green light to the Iran nuke program by saying America (just another nation, after all) had no right to decide which nations could or could not have nukes. Iran got the message loud and clear: this guy is a liberal wuss, he thinks our "feelings are hurt" we will go nuke ASAP

I hate to phrase it this way, but Romney was right about this. The majority of Obozo's support comes from two sources. The first is a majority of the lower socio-economic class. These are the ones that depend of government hand outs for their existence. For some reason, they have been TAUGHT that they don't have to educate themselves in order to get a job that is capable of supporting themselves. Just vote for me and I'll make sure that the govmint will take care of you.

The second source is those who have been "educated" in some of our ivory towers of higher education. While students, they were properly indoctrinated into the various socialist/communist ideas that their various professors cling to.

It's no wonder that's it's so hard to defeat a Dim. They promise the moon and it won't cost you a dime. We'll just tax "the rich" to raise all the money that will be needed. Or print some more.

The really frightening thing is that even if Romney wins, these radical people will still be around, spreading their poison, insinuating themselves into any position that gives them power, seeking to undermine the new administration. Poster #42 is correct in saying treason matters.

Focus-group feedback aside, I really wish Romney took a sledgehammer to Obama's abysmal foreign polic record in that last debate. I was glad to see him hit Obama hard on the apology tour - only wished he'd worked the incessant bowing to other foreign heads of state in there. This President is more than embarassment to our country. He is dangerous, and had presided over the loss of American lives, prestige, interests, and security around the world. It is a strategic and moral imperative we replace this American apologist with Mitt Romney on November 6th.

There are photos of the bowing from the navel and recordings of his speeches, so he can't duck this one. Even his last speech at the UN was disturbing.

Should we call it bootlicking instead ?

Much to the delight and self-satisfaction of the reality-based community, “Big Data” has been en vogue of late, and to such an extent that it has promised to make hipsters of the terminally uncool. In the space of just a few weeks, both Nate Silver and Ezra Klein have launched brand new websites, which, although imperceptibly different in their core objectives, both promised to overlook the “fundamentally useless” “pundits” that sully the nation’s media and to replace them with the calm explication and modest objectivity that one can only get from the sort of detached, numbers-driven pragmatists who made their names

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will refund his campaign for the purchase of more than $16,000 in holiday gifts that came from his granddaughter’s jewelry company. “I thought it would be nice to give supporters and staff thank-you gifts that had a personal connection and a Searchlight connection, but I have decided to reimburse the campaign for the amount of the expenditure,” Reid said in a Tuesday statement. The refund comes after the Federal Election Commission sent a letter last week to Reid’s campaign, asking for additional information about two payments totaling $16,786.93 to “Ryan Elisabeth” on Reid’s 2013 year-end campaign

Open the floodgates? Indiana becomes

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana has become the first of 45 states to opt out of the national education standard known as Common Core, and critics of the controversial K-12 program say the move could "open the floodgates" for others to follow. Growing criticism over costs imposed by the program, as well as fears that by setting a national education standard, the program has already begun dictating curriculum, has made Common Core an increasingly polarizing issue. Although the program has both Republican and Democrat supporters, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence predicted his state will be the first of many to rethink participation. "I

From dust to dust, people and cars come and go, but sometimes the old is reborn … and out of the dust emerges something immaculate. A 1969 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 428 Cobra Jet is a mouthful to say but it will drop any car enthusiasts jaw. This particular garage-find was owned and perfectly preserved by a now-deceased automotive connoisseur. Larry never washed the car for fear of scratching the paintjob or cause even the slightest bit of rust. Yahoo News estimates that the only time the car was ever washed was before delivery. Accordingly, the car is in absolute

Since the 1950s, geological reports on the hill that buckled during the weekend in Snohomish County have included pessimistic analyses and the occasional dire prediction. But no language seems more prescient than what appears in a 1999 report filed with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, warning of “the potential for a large catastrophic failure.” That report was written by Daniel J. Miller and his wife, Lynne Rodgers Miller. When she saw the news of the mudslide Saturday, she knew right away where the land had given way. Her husband knew, too. “We’ve known it would happen at some point,”

How Republicans Can Win Black Votes

Recently former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice added her voice to those who have long been urging the Republican party to reach out to black voters. Not only is that long overdue, what is also long overdue is putting some time — and, above all, some serious thought — into how to go about doing it. Too many Republicans seem to think that the way to “reach out” is to offer blacks and other minorities what the Democrats are offering them. Some have even suggested that the channels to use are organizations like the NAACP and black “leaders” like Jesse Jackson

The State Department purchased two Mitsubishi pick-ups for $50,000 to be used by the border police in Albania. The U.S. government has already bought six L200 Double Cab Mitsubishis for the Albanian Border Police (ABP), and said the two additional vehicles will “fulfill the ABP’s needs.” “The vehicles will be provided to the Albanian Border Police (ABP) under a U.S. Government funded nonproliferation assistance program,” the contract said. “The ABP will deploy the vehicles to the Regional Border Police Directorates in Albania for patrolling, monitoring and controlling its land borders, and to interdict illicit trafficking across those borders.” The two new Mitsubishis will

The mountain of broken down televisions and computer screens caught fire at around 11 o’clock in the morning, sending a thick plume of grey smoke over the tiny Utah town of Parowan. Soon, about ten fire trucks from neighboring towns Paragonah and Brian joined local firefighters on the scene, and authorities shut down an entire mile of Interstate 15. The firefighters extinguished the blaze within a few hours, but the larger danger remains. The March 2 fire was just one symptom of enormous problem that’s spreading across the country. As we move to flat screen TVs and computer displays, we’re discarding

In the wake of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, several public figures, most notably former Vice President Dick Cheney and Senator Ted Cruz, have called to resurrect a plan to build missile defense sites in Poland and the Czech Republic that President Obama canceled in 2009. They’re on to something. The proposed missile defense sites would have protected the U.S. and Europe from Iranian missiles. They were comprised of 10 large interceptors (think bullets) that were to be placed in Poland – too close, too big and too few to affect the Russian arsenal. Accompanying radar in the Czech Republic would

Congressional Republicans, led by House Oversight Committee chair Darrell Issa,are planning another IRS coal-raking exercise for Wednesday, hauling the tax agency´s commissioner in for a hearing about the nearly year-old tea party targeting scandal.

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

London - A remarkable piece of high-tech data detective work has provided what looks to be the missing clue to the tragic fate of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, an expert said Monday. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak earlier on Monday said that information provided by British satellite company Inmarsat and the British government´s Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) confirmed that MH370 had flown to a remote part of the Indian Ocean where the flight ended. (Snip) Inmarsat had come up with a theory to apply to the data it had collected from MH370 during the flight, and had then tested the results on aircraft in

Former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news this week publicizing a new book about women’s rights. But, as is often the case with Carter, he drew more interest for comments he made about Israel and its supporters. When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor. I think the problem was that– that in dealing

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

First Lady Michelle Obama talked about America as she visited a school today in China. She talked about the American dream: And my story isn’t unusual in America. Some of our most famous athletes, like LeBron James, and artists, like the singer Janelle Monae, came from struggling families like mine, as do many business leaders -- like Howard Schultz. He’s the head of a company called Starbucks, which many of you may have heard of. When Mr. Schultz was a boy his father lost his job, leaving their family destitute. But Mr. Schultz worked hard.

WASHINGTON — Spring break was never this dull. First Lady Michelle Obama’s kids finally hit the wall on their whirlwind visit to China, showing signs they’ve nearly reached their limit tagging along with mom as she visits site after site on what’s billed as a “person-to-person” tour. Accompanied by Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, the first lady on Monday toured Xi’an, an ancient city in the ancestral province of Chinese President Xi Jinping. They inspected the city’s 600-year-old wall, a day after touring the Great Wall near Beijing. Photos show Sasha looking like she’d rather be back home with her pals than hitting the

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

Most Supreme Court watchers are fixated these days on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby—the important challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate scheduled for argument Tuesday. And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term. It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts’s leadership on the Supreme Court. Just two years ago, Roberts cast the deciding vote to largely uphold the Affordable Care Act. While the country remains divided over whether he acted like a traitor or a statesman, all would have to agree

It’s not an early April Fool’s joke -- Business Insider has hired disgraced former NYC Congressman and mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner to write a weekly political column, starting Friday. Hunter Walker, Business Insider’s politics editor, published the announcement on Monday, after teasing the news on Twitter by announcing that “something wonderful is about to happen.” The folks at Business Insider are clearly aware of the built-in entertainment value of hiring the scandalized politician, who is best known for sending an explicit photo of himself to an online mistress on Twitter -- and initially denying the photo was his.

During oral arguments in the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday which focused on whether the contraceptive mandate in the Affordable Care Act violates the free exercise of religion, Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan suggested employers who have moral objections to birth control should not provide health care coverage for their employees. “But isn´t there another choice nobody talks about, which is paying the tax, which is a lot less than a penalty and a lot less than -- than the cost of health insurance at all?” Sotomayor said during the presentation by attorney Paul Clement, who represents Hobby Lobby Stores
