Not your ancestors’ kind of respect

Obama’s hubris really knows no bounds.
Allen B West

Last week, speaking to a group of community leaders from ASEAN, The Association of Southeast Asian Nations, President Obama made the hilarious claim that HE has restored this nation’s standing in the world. No lie. He said “People don’t remember, but when I came into office, the Untied States in world opinion ranked below China and just barely above Russia, and today once again, the Untied States is the most respected country on earth.”

Is it a sign of respect that people will not honor your borders? Is it a sign of respect that Putin treats you like a doormat? Is it a sign of respect when the leadership is a laughing stock. Is it a symptom of respect to have no credibility?

Let’s get something straight, what most of the world does respect is power and strength. But this president has telegraphed weakness to every corner of the world — and that is a very difficult thing to do.

There’s an old wise tale: “there is honor among thieves” and Obama has no honor. He has conceit and hubris but that is not honor. There is nothing honorable about Obama.

Maybe some in the world respect the ability to lie, which Obama demonstrates almost daily. Heck, we can’t even get any respect — and translated into trust — from our allies. Besides, what is respect worth anyway? If not translated into meaningful actions, then respect is not worth much.

What he is doing is commending the rest of the world on their insatiable ability to misapply their respect. As I said, what is respected is strength and power in the world. That invasion of illegals Obama sponsored just says respect all over it. Right! Being afraid to use the term Islamic terrorism begets respect. Denying ISIS is Islamic is respectable.

Funny how Obama doesn’t give any respect, especially to the US.

So I don’t think we need graphs and pie charts to see that the rest of the civilized world has Zero respect for us. But I know it’s probably a trick question with the pollsters. If respect is defined as disdain and distrust, then they have mountains of it. Or when they laugh at Obama’s statements they say “that just demands respect.”

Now a Kenyan, Mo-Bro supporter, Chicago radical, liar is telling us respect for the US since he took office is at an all-time high. What’s to question?

Pelosi takes a stab at “problems”

Pelosi lied and Democrats cried

Obama meetings couldn’t have prevented gridlock, Pelosi says

Posted by
CNN’s Gregory Wallace

(CNN) – The stalemate in Washington is not because President Barack Obama has held himself above meeting with Republicans, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Sunday.

In an exclusive interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” the chamber’s top Democrat said Obama respects congressional Republicans and called “just really not reality” the idea that Obama could have prevented gridlock by meeting with the GOP sooner.

“It is not why we haven’t had progress before. We haven’t had progress before because the Republicans were committed to blocking the initiatives of President Barack Obama,” she said.

Pelosi spoke shortly after Obama took a dozen Senate Republicans out for dinner, sat down with the 2012 Republican vice presidential candidate and has plans to meet with senators and representatives from both parties on Capitol Hill next week. Washington has just over two weeks to pass a measure averting a government shutdown, which neither party wants.

Here are Pelosi’s words:

“CROWLEY: A lot of talk about the president reaching out to Republicans. Do you think that this in, any way, undercuts leadership?

PELOSI: No. No. Absolutely not. The president has always been very respectful of the views of the Republicans and the Congress, their leadership and their membership. He has always tried to accommodate them. This idea that, but for that we would have gotten all these other things done is just really not reality.
/…
PELOSI: … He’s been very bipartisan in his approach.

I think it is, let’s get some things done together to make elections less important. … That’s far more important than what happens in an election.

Getting lectured about election politics from Pelosi… now that’s rich!

Here’s Exhibit A in Democrats’ negotiatiing, working with Republicans:(Free Beacon)

  •  DNC chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.) calls the Ryan Medicare plan ‘literally a death trap’ in April 2011
  •  Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D., Texas) on “Hurricane Ryan” in April 2011
  •  Health and Human Services Sec. Kathleen Sebelius offers ‘die sooner’ as an option under Ryan’s Medicare plan in May 2011
  •  Wasserman Schultz compares Ryan plan to a tornado in March 2012
  •  Democratic strategist and fundraiser Karen Finney says Obama campaign’s “Julia” would be dead by 30 under Ryan’s plan in May 2012

    And Alan Grayson saying Republicans want the sick to “die quickly”.

    And lets see, their own fuhrer-in-chief attacked Ryan’s plan as un-American, labeling it a Trojan Horse calling it a “radical vision” of ” social Darwinism”. That’s rich considering OBamaCare.  

    He’s really working on that respect, isn’t he? Note his words to the News Editors:

    It’s a Trojan horse. Disguised as deficit reduction plan, it’s really an attempt to impose a radical vision on our country. It’s nothing but thinly veiled social Darwinism,” Obama said at a luncheon during the annual meeting of the American Society of News Editors.

    How’s that for showing great “respect” in listening to their ideas? You really got us there, Nan.

    And when he criticized Ryan and the Supreme Court while seated in front of him from the national podium. Respect? Then there was candidate Obama calling Bush unpatriotic for spending.

    You think Obama heard echoes of Pelosi’s previous warning about inflammatory language? Of course that was the reason he said it, to be inflammatory, just like the SOTUS. It is the very reason he does it. “Respect”, Nancy tells us.

    Here was Pelosi trembling in fear over Tea Parties:

    “I have concerns about some of the language that is being used because I saw … I saw this myself in the late ’70s in San Francisco,” Pelosi said, choking up and with tears forming in her eyes. “This kind of rhetoric is just, is really frightening and it created a climate in which we, violence took place and … I wish that we would all, again, curb our enthusiasm in some of the statements that are made.

    Hypocrisy is her middle name

    Now here is her concerns about drone targeting on American soil:

    “But this is where the great coming together that our country and our Founders experienced in their own time because they were always under threat, witness the War of 1812, and the challenge to balance freedom and security. I don’t think that the administration has any intention of using drones in the United States against American citizens or otherwise. So I don’t have that fear.”

    Maybe she should have checked with AG Holder before she said that. Oops, his comments and intentions were the very reason for the outrage, I forgot. Pelosi shoots off her mouth and people think its cute. Biden shoots off his mouth — or shotgun off his balcony – and they say: “that’s just Joe. Isn’t he a hoot?” The right says anything and its immediately twisted into a pretzel that supposedly offends most of the country.

    Pelosi got fear fever over Tea Party people but no concerns about government overstepping its authority on we the people.

    Meanwhile, Obama can accuse Republicans of being un-American, practicing social Darwinism, and call their plans a “Trojan Horse”. That’s called “respect”. Democrats rally and cheer him on crying “NO harm, no foul!”- to verbalize their approval. Then Pelosi can come out and lie about it, as if they are victims and taken out of context.

    Early on Obama labeled voters as gun toting, Bible thumping bigots.

    This passes for respectful politics and bipartisanship, and listening or working with the other side? Sure it does, if you are Pelosi.

    Nancy defending earlier claims she had no knowledge about enhanced interrogation:

    Poor Nancy Pelosi, she can never manage to get her talking points quite right without contradicting herself. Here she is fumbling up her words about her knowledge of investigation tactics used. She is in an all out race with Holder on who can muddy up their words more.

Now we know Democrats’ definition redefinition of respect.
