    Embarrassed To Be American
    Nancy Morgan
    For the first time in my life, I'm embarrassed to be an American.

    Last weekend, as tens of thousands of Japanese were fighting for their lives after an 8.9 earthquake devastated their nation, our President, after giving a generic "We're with you" statement, remained noticeably absent.

    Not really absent -- Obama could be found on the golf course Saturday afternoon.

    As a Japanese nuclear reactor melted down and threatened a catastrophe of biblical proportions, Obama was otherwise engaged Saturday night, having a rollicking good time at Washington D.C.'s annual Gridiron Dinner. Joking with journalists.

    There is something quite shameful about watching our President attending a dress-up dinner, trolling for laughs, as one of America's allies struggles for life. I'm embarrassed for America, and I send my personal apologies to the Japanese people for the insensitivity of our President.

    As the turmoil in Libya continues to escalate, threatening severe geopolitical consequences, it is France (France?) that has filled the global leadership void by proposing a no-fly zone over Libya. What is the President of the free world doing? During his Saturday afternoon radio address to the nation, Obama was busy lecturing Americans about the role of women. And writing an op-ed about the virtues of gun control.

    What? Obama is not doing enough for other countries, and she's embarrassed by that? How embarrassing was it when Bush sat in a classroom with a blank stare on his face while Americans were jumping out of windows of the WTC? This bitch is stupid.

    It's OK, it's not like he's a Republican or an oil executive or anything.

    That's okay. I didn't vote for Raygun and I'm still embarrassed because of all kind of thing he did. Not the least of which is selling weapons to Iran for hostages while he was also supplying their enemy Iraq with weapons, while the two were at war. Then taking those proceeds and illegally funding the Costa Rician based terrorist involved in cross border attacks on Nicaragua.

    I didn't vote for GWH Bush either and I'm still embarrassed by his continued involvement supporting Saddam Hussein well after the war with Iran had ended. Then for fostering the Iraq invasion of Kuwait, which he could have stopped by being honest with Saddam about the US response to coming Iraq/Kuwait hostilities.

    I didn't vote for Clinton but both parties embarrassed me during his tenure.

    Need I say a word about the embarrassment GW Bush fostered upon the country?

    So you go right ahead and be embarrassed by the President.

    I'm perfectly happy with Obama playing golf. The less Obama says and does, the better.

    Damn straight! He should have flown his magic unicorn over there and shot rainbows out of his hands to push back the waves and absorb the radiation. Damn him!

    I suspect that many Righties here would have had a problem with that too.

    i'm trying to decide who is a bigger asshat.

    this morgan woman for writing this pap, or you for spreading it.

    tough call, but i guess i have to go with you.

    presumably, this morgan unit got paid.

    kudos to you :thup:
