In 2009, Obama went to Strasbourg, France to proclaim:
“Instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive.“
Even aside from Syria, Obama is the very definition of arrogance. Who is more dismissive than Obama of any opinion differing with his, especially toward the American people? And derisive, could that not be his middle name – if it wasn’t Hussein already?
His excuses for those comments were just as
insult…derisive. Flash forward to Obama on Syria being, arrogant, dismissive, derisive even toward America.
But in the case of Syria, his red-line mantra and acting like an arrogant bully, and then ignoring the will of the people preparing to act unilaterally bypassing Congress. He sent out others to make his case for action.
Then he said he wanted congress’s support, after the fact. He was completely dismissive of anyone disagreeing with him. And later he acts even more derisive, claiming he did not draw a red-line that it was everyone else. Plus it is everyone else’s credibility on the line, not his. He was derisive about Putin acting like a school kid. Of course, there are plenty more negative words to describe Obama but those were among his top complaints against America. Have we ever got arrogance, in spades, with Obama!
His arrogance exudes. He is dismissive of who used the WMD–chemical weapons or where they came from, and derisive toward anyone who questions it.
At the G-20 Summit answering questions, on Syria, he said he was not making an analogy to WWII … and went on to make an analogy to WWII and Britain. He can contradict himself in back to back sentences. Now chief critique of America wants support for his second intervention, third when you count Egypt.
He has been equally dismissive toward Israel and the concerns over Iran building another Holocaust, even undermining strategy. All while his arrogance plays a leading role.
Don’t even start me on his sheer arrogance over abortion, standing in support of that genocide; while being dismissive of rational reason, supporting a final solution of infanticide if necessary, deriding anyone who disagrees.
PS: I didn’t mean to leave out his arrogance, dismissiveness, and derisiveness in Benghazi and Libya.
