As challenges mount, ardor for Obama cools abroad

As challenges mount, ardor for Obama cools abroad

Barack Obama got a global standing ovation long before he was elected president. But in a fickle and fast-moving world, the overseas reviews are already turning mixed.

“Just two months ago, the future president seemed a cross between Superman and Merlin the magician,” Massimo Gramellini wrote in a commentary for Italy’s La Stampa newspaper. “Now he himself admits he won’t be able to keep all his promises, and who knows? Maybe someone will ask for his impeachment by the end of next week.”

Now this a great line, “a cross between Superman and Merlin the magician”. Of course Obama has bitten off more than he can chew. Certainly he is going to be far less effective than advertised. The good part is, many in the WORLD have seen it. The REALLY good part will come when the libber left deflates once they realize that Obama has let his promises write checks his ass can’t cash. The sound of the *whoosh* will be deafening.

Muslims want to know why Obama hasn’t joined the chorus of international criticism of Israel’s Gaza offensive. Last week posters of him were set on fire in Tehran to shouts of “Death to Obama!”

“By the time Obama takes office, hundreds or thousands more will be killed in Gaza and it will be too late for him to act,” said Adel Fawzi, an Egyptian government clerk in Cairo.

Obama is NOT a stupid man. He is ultimately confident but perhaps the harsh reality of what he has inherited is beginning to sink in on him. He may, and I believe he will, as soon as he is sworn in, will declare his intentions to side against Israel. Obama is facing some seriously overwhelming circumstances, and when you consider that George Bush had a bit of time to acclimate to the office of POTUS, Obama is coming in as a solid rookie and will not have the luxury of *getting used to it*.

All the BS that got *Barack the Magic Negro* through the campaign isn’t going to suffice as Chief Executive! Obama is going to have to take sides, and I am off the belief that once he has the reins of power in hand, none of us on the RIGHT are going to be happy with the side he picks!

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and German Chancellor Angela Merkel both say they’re confident the Obama administration will succeed in working with Europe and China to build a stronger global economy.

And if Obama’s own words are to be believed, he’ll be negotiating with terrorists, the enemies of this nation, on the belief that HE can make them see the err of their ways!

Obama needs to worry about the American economy before he sets off to save the world, he needs to ferret out the crooks of BOTH political parties and put an end to the unscrupulous financial shenanigans perpetrated by Wall Street and Company. Then he can set off on his quest for Sainthood and world dominance.

That’s the problem, said Reginald Dale, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington: People everywhere simply expect too much, practically ensuring Obama will disappoint.

“The United States can’t solve all the world’s problems,” he said in an interview. “It doesn’t have enough money or military power. And the president is constrained by Congress and the constitution. The founding fathers wanted to stop someone from being like a monarch.”

This guy apparently didn’t get the memo that the constitution is going to be rewritten to accommodate the coming monarchy…
