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?
