The Great Untier

Remember all that talk about how Obama was going to heal our relations with the countries that we’d offended with our arrogant, imperialist, high-handed policies?

Well he’s irked the Germans by hectoring them on the EU’s fiscal crisis.  They don’t like being lectured by a country that is over a $120 trillion in debt for some reason.

And the Palestinians are annoyed that at last year’s UN speech Obama drawled on about how he wanted to see an independent Palestine next year (i.e. now) and then this year he went back on it.

If he keeps enraging one population a week, we should have the whole planet mad at us in time for the next election.  Go, team Obama!

But seriously, I still contend that most people around the world don’t hate us.  They’re smart enough to understand there’s a difference between the government and the people.  I just can’t help tweaking Obama.

About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
