    Obama has just returned from his Asian trip having prior to his departure declared he was the first Pacific President!

    Really? Ever herd of Teddy Roosevelt? He reoriented US military policy to start concentrating on the region, sent the “Great White Fleet” all over the Pacific and won a Nobel Peace prize for negotiating a peace deal between Russia and Japan. Does Obama think he is the first Nobel President as well?

    Or FDR, who fought a little war over there, President Obama, you may not have herd of it, WW2, it made the US the dominant Pacific power.

    Or Truman, who rebuilt much of the war ravaged region, confirmed with the Korean War, and by establishing permanent US economic ties and bases that the US would not turn from the Pacific.

    Kennedy and LBJ who made an American commitment to fend off communism even in Pacific countries not vital to US economic interests.

    Nixon, who ended the hostile relationship with China, went there when it was politically difficult to do and who the Chinese to this day see as a great man?

    Ever heard of these guys Pacific President Obama? (By the way the Islamic world did not invent algebra, the compass or the printing press and pen. But that is for another post.)

    Still, given the way Obama was pushed around on his Pacific trip, the Chinese saying no to every last one of his initiatives, and lecturing him openly (not done lightly in China) on US debt levels and the falling value of the US dollar and demanding what no other President could concede to, they call all the shots at all joint press conferences; the Japanese (who changed their own laws to send troops to Iraq at the request of Bush) telling Obama they want base reductions and will no longer help with promised logistical support in the Afgan war, the Indians recently expressing their concern that the Chinese perceive US policy as weak and undirected.

    Our first Pacific President did a lot of bowing, literally, before friend and foe, but he came back with nothing and left an impression of US weakness.

    Maybe Obama is the first Pacific President? If he means the original meaning of the word.

    No, there was always Jimmy Carter.

    I thought he meant because he was born on an island in the Pacific?

    Obama wants to think he's special.....otherwise he deep down inside feels worthless.

    He always wants to proclaim he's something he's not.

    Like because he's a Senator from Illinois he's Abraham Lincoln....or he has his wife dress up like Jackie Kennedy because he wants to be like JFK....too bad they wouldn't let him say JFK's famous words at the Berlin Wall.

    He wants to be MLK, FDR, you name it and he claims he's like them....and now he wants to say he's the first Pacific President like that has any significance at all.

    The guy is a fake. A jerk. He talks about himself more then any president I've ever seen. And he refuses to take any blame for the economy or the Afghan War.

    All of this in the first year. We've got 3 more years of listening to this tool.

    That's nothing, I heard that during a cabinet meeting, Obama had to excuse himself to use the men's room and hastily returned without first washing his hands. F*ck'n commie! :evil:
