The Most Equal Comrade, once again, while on foreign soil, takes the opportunity to diss the nation he "presides" over

Today in Laos:

Speaking at a town hall held Wednesday in Luang Prabang, Laos, President Barack Obamatwice suggested that Americans are “lazy”when it comes to the environment and learning other cultures.
“Usually, if you see the environment destroyed, it’s not because that’s necessary for development,” Obama told the Laotian audience. “It’s usually because we are being lazy, and we’re not being as creative as we could be about how to do it in the smarter, sustainable way.”
Later Obama used similar language when discussing American culture. “I believe that the United States is and can be a force for good in the world,” he said. “But because we’re such a big country, we haven’t always had to know about other parts of the world.”
“If you are in Laos, you need to know about Thailand and China and Cambodia, because you’re a small country and they’re right next-door and you need to know who they are. If you’re [in] the United States, sometimes you can feel lazy and think we’re so big we don’t have to really know anything about other people,” he concluded.
Yes, indeed, that's the way to present the citizens of the nation whose throat you have a death grip on you govern.

Mind you, he said this after post-America had been treated like an ugly stepsister at G-20:

When Obama flew into China on Saturday, he was not welcomed in traditional diplomatic fashion with a red carpet and mobile staircase allowing him to descend from Air Force One. Instead, the president disembarked the aircraft using a back exit after touching down in Hangzhou.
At the same time, Chinese officials corralled American reporters behind a rope, preventing them from witnessing Obama’s arrival and sparking skirmishes with White House officials. A Chinese official confronted Susan Rice, Obama’s national security adviser, on the tarmac and tried to prevent her from bypassing the media rope line and walking to the president’s motorcade, prompting the Secret Service to intervene.
The same Chinese official was caught on video shouting at a White House press aide who was showing foreign journalists where to stand as Obama exited Air Force One, according to Reuters. “This is our plane. We’re standing under the wing,” the aide said. “This is our country. This is our airport. Okay?” a Chinese official shouted back at her.
The scuffles occurred just before Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping appeared together to announce their countries’ formal adoption of the international climate change deal brokered in Paris last December.
The president’s reception in China was widely viewed as embarrassing, though Obama sought to downplay the incident. “I wouldn’t overcrank the significance,” the president told reporters of the airport confrontations on Sunday.
Meanwhile, China blamed the American media for the incident. China’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said Monday that it was a “small episode,” knocking the “highly unprofessional” U.S. media for “making an issue out of it.”
As world leaders gathered at the G-20 Summit, China also appeared to be bucking U.S. warnings in the South China Sea. According to accounts from Philippine officials, at least eight Chinese vessels including four Chinese coast guard ships, were witnessed in the area of the disputed Scarborough Shoal in recent days.

I really try not to engage in ad hominem vitriol, but this guy has proven over and over in the last eight years that he has dog vomit where most people have souls.


  1. Lots of folks try to embarrass Obama. Netanyahu comes to mind pretty quickly in that category. So who's fault is the disrespect?

  2. Netanyahu's focus has never been "embarrassing Obama." It has been sounding the warning bell about the impending obliteration of Western civilization.

    Likewise, it is not the point of this LITD post to "embarrass Obama." It is to point out the utter disdain in which he holds the country he thought needed to be fundamentally transformed.

  3. Well, I don't know what America can do about that but I do know The United States currently spends more than $600 billion a year on the military, more than the next seven countries combined. Guess we need a real white man in office again.

  4. Please explain what US military expenditures have to do with the subject at hand. Unless I'm missing something, it looks like a non sequitur.

  5. I don't care about a president's race, but I do think that loving basic human freedom, the United States of America and its Constitution is a minimum requirement.

  6. US military expenditures which are greater than the next 6 countries combined should mean that we got the greatest killing machines to put our enemies in place, right? I suppose we're all waiting for the right man to carry the suitcase. All this griping about the usual geopolitical posturing. Who cares? Yawn. Do something to them, Dano, whatever.

  7. Gonna get you a patriotic litmus test huh? Let's go crazy for the red white & blue. It sells records. Aint nobody gonna love her like you do, right? Or do you know your peeps by their love? As for the Constitution, it's a legal document. Enough said.

  8. It's hard not to suspect that you, like Barack Obama, think the United States is fundamentally morally flawed and has no business being the leader of the world on the economic, ,military and moral levels, that American society is rife with bigotry and that the Constitution is outmoded, that its time is past and that it must become an entirely different nation in character.

  9. Wrong! So why don't you kill me anyway?

  10. Ooh, I stated the fact that the Constitution is a legal document. Scary, aint it? To you....
