Unreal. Obama Tells Kazakh Dictator He's "Taken Historical Steps to Improve Democracy" in the US

Bush Stood With Dissidents… Obama Sits With Dictators.

His arrogance and cluelessness knows no bounds.

Barack Obama held a meeting yesterday with Kazakh President and dictator for life Nursultan Nazarbayev. The two discussed democracy and Obama told the Central Asian dictator that he has taken “historic steps” to improve democracy in the US.
The Cable reported

President Obama said Sunday that the United States is still “working on” democracy and a top aide said he has taken “historic steps” to improve democracy in the United States during his time in office.

The remarks came as Obama met with Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev — one of the U.S. president’s many meetings with world leaders ahead of this week’s nuclear summit.

Kazakhstan, which has been touting its record on combating nuclear proliferation, is a key player in the NATO supply network to Afghanistan and currently heads the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).

Some observers see a conflict between Kazakhstan’s chairmanship of the 56-nation OSCE, which plays an important role in monitoring elections in emerging democracies, and its own widely criticized human rights record.

But if the Obama administration saw any disconnect, it kept its criticism to itself.

“In connection with the OSCE, the presidents had a very lengthy discussion of issues of democracy and human rights,” NSC senior director Mike McFaul said on a conference call with reporters Sunday. “Both presidents agreed that you don’t ever reach democracy; you always have to work at it. And in particular, President Obama reminded his Kazakh counterpart that we, too, are working to improve our democracy.”

The Wall Street Journal’s Jonathan Weisman asked McFaul to clarify.

“You seemed to be suggesting there was some equivalence between their issues of democracy and the United States’ issues, when you said that President Obama assured him that we, too, are working on our democracy,” Weisman said. “Is there equivalence between the problems that President Nazarbayev is confronting and the state of democracy in the United States?”

“Absolutely not … There was no equivalence meant whatsoever,” McFaul said. “[Obama’s] taken, I think, rather historic steps to improve our own democracy since coming to office here in the United States.”

What historical steps?…
Ramming Obamacare through Congress against the will of the people?

    I want Barack Hussein Obama’s explicit and complete definition of the word “democracy”. Every American deserves to know what he believes.

  • Bob

    Update: The teleprompter meant to say “we are still working on socialism”

  • jonnot

    Glad to see that these two dictators can agree on thier definition of Democracy. Absolutely pitiful.

  • That’s just it. We’re NOT a democracy. The more we move towards a democracy, the easier it is to promote progressive idea. People always vote for free stuff.

    Somebody tell that buffoon in the Oval Office that we are a representative republic.

  • Andreas K.

    “[Obama’s] taken, I think, rather historic steps to improve our own democracy since coming to office here in the United States.”

    Like… what exactly? He hasn’t done anything to improve democracy or anything else. Oh, this is like the nobel piss prize. I get it.

    Mike McFaul should watch out. If Obama suddenly stops walking, McFaul will be stuck in his master’s butt with his head. Those buttkissers are always that close.

    Irony: “Faul” in German means lazy but also foul and rotten.

  • Slappy

    Yeah, “historic steps to IMPROVE our own democracy,” much like Chavez is doing in Venezuela, right Barry? For example, you have the passing of a healthcare bill against the wishes of a clear majority of the country. That apparently is considered an improvement of our democracy in the mind of the man-child, Pelosi, Reid, and the rest of Obama’s fervent supporters.

  • Galt

    Obama seems to think democracy is when Fidel Castro gets 99% of the “vote” giving him total control over the lives and livelihoods of all Cubans.

    Crazy to say that? Think of how he regards dissent. Think of the control he wants to assert over private decisions. And open markets. And rule of law.

  • Flyover Sam

    Apparently a Harvard degree doesn’t buy much these days. Someone please notify the White House staff that spell-check isn’t going to catch this particular typo. The President clearly said he’s “taken hysteric steps to improve our own democracy.”

    Exactly cargosquid.

    Here at school we say the Pledge of Allegiance every day. PBO needs to say it too, “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

    What an absolute moron. It’s embarrassing.

    Every day, absolutely every day I am disgusted with this man. He is the epitome of arrogance. I have lived on this earth for 60 years and have participated in our representative republic for almost 40 of those years. How lucky I am to finally have Barack Obama come along to improve my lot in our democracy. Shameful and Stupid.

    RE: That photo.

    Obama looks absolutely silly, sitting there with that smarmy, “look-at-me-I’m-The-One” grin on his face.

    One would think that he was at a GQ photo-shoot.

  • Reality


    Mr. Obama, I don’t think that word means what you think it means.

  • Alana

    He always IS at a GQ photo shoot.

    There was a slideshow montage somewhere that showed him meeting with all the dignitaries there. There were probably fifty of them, where he had posed with the individual for a phot.

    In all of them, he looked just like he does in this one (except standing). Only by small differences in posing and standing could you tell they were different photos.

    It’s a face he puts on. A mask almost. Very perfected. VERY perfected.

    Everything is “unprecednted or historic” according to Obama …

    After all …

    He’s the first African-American President to smack his face on a window of the White House, thinking it was a door …

    He’s the first African-American President to insult the leader of Israel …

  • aprilnovember811

    He is so beneath the office he was elected to. He’s an embarrassment. And the people that elected him, look sooooo stupid. Where is this frauds papers that show the “brilliance,” some are always talking about? Where is his long form birth certificate that shows he was born in Hawaii, as those in the know say?

    I went to the DMV a couple of weeks ago to get my drivers license. Guess what she told me she needed to see, for my identity? My birth certificate, with the raised seal. I just looked at her and said, are you kidding? We have someone in the White House, who won’t show his, and he has access to all of the country’s secrets, and the ability to cut nuclear weapons. She didn’t respond, so I said why is that, and she said, “I know you’re upset.” I said, the only thing I’m upset about, is the fact that we have a fraud President, giving away our countries secrets, to the likes of Bill Ayers and George Soros, and everyone is fiddling while Rome burns.

    I also asked her how illegal aliens in my state get drivers licenses? Again no answer. I’m moving from this state at the end of the year, and I told them, they will no longer be recieving tax revenue from my family. It’s quite a bit by the way. If the Federal Government wasn’t smack dab in the middle of where I am, they would be sinking in the Potomac, just like CA is sinking.

    I’m going to be going back there, and this time I’m taking a “Where’s the Birth Certificate,” bumper sticker, to give to them. I can’t stand one more dime going to these government bums anymore.

  • Warthog

    But the thing is, he has improved it. He’s gotten the electorate more involved and speaking out. People are more interested in what is going on in Washington and voicing their opinions at the ballot box.

    They’re just not of his own party.

    (I sense a flaw in his plan…)

  • ExZonie

    Oh, why are you wing-nuts all so worried? It’s not like he’s treated other despots in a friendly way… well, except for Chavez, and Zelaya, and Putin.

    OK never mind that.

    He’s really supportive of our allies… well except for Netanyahu, Harper, and Brown, and then there is Sarkozy who called him an idiot.

    OK now I’m worried too.

  • CoolCzech

    What historic steps has Obama taken to improve democracy in the United States?

    well, he did introduce the first political Cult of Personality, complete with Soviet and Fascist-style agitprop, into our society.

    And his minions have labeled mainstream political opponents (you know – the clear majority of all Americans) as right wing extremists and racsits.

    How much “historic” can we expect of this guy?

    And here I thought we were a representative republic, not a democracy. In fact didn’t our founders specifically shun unstable majority rule, democracy?

Therefore, he must be removed IMMEDIATELY. This trial will show the world how this Seditious and Treasonous act of installing a Usurper as POTUS was made possible.”

    This statement will strike most Americans the way it strikes most people here. Obama’s Orwellian twisting of words is infuriating and one of the best possible motivators to throwing the Democrats out of power in November.

    Obama is ‘working on’ democracy – working to get rid of it that is. Obama’s ideas of improvement in democracy is in how much destruction he can do to it, in the shortest time possible. Obama is insane.

  • Obama is an absolute moron. He’s working on TYRANNY, nothing more. He needs to be resisted at all costs.

  • bandit

    Then Obama said ‘I’m taking a lot of advice from my mentors Hugo and Fidel and will be following their lead in making the US a more ideal democracy like Venezuela or Cuba.’

  • There’s the problem. Hopefully they teach that we have a republican form of government in a Harvard government class. It is the only form of government guaranteed to each state ( of the republic ) of the union. The word ‘democracy’ dies not appear anywhere in our founding documents.

    Being ‘democratic’ should not be misconstrued that it necessarily constitutes a Democracy. One word is an adjective the other a noun. It’s a nuance thing and it is troubling when those who espouse their brilliance by their ability to see many sides of things cannot understand something a sixth-grader has no problem with understanding.

  • Don Rodrigo

    This administration acts more like an occupier rather than an elected government. They consider themselves alien to the American experience. Obama and his wife clearly don’t like most of Americans.

    Every day there is something more ridiculous than the day before. Some of these stories I check the URL to make sure I haven’t been re-directed to The Onion.

    Something is very WRONG with this picture. Should not Obama be seated with the american flag behind him and Nazarbayev seated with the Kazakh flag over his shoulder. Then again having a fascist dictator like Obama as president he does look rather well suited wearing that sh*t eating grin with a Kazakh flag behind him. He never looked better !

  • DJ

    “Democracy is mentioned nowhere in any U.S. document.”

    The basis for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights was The Federalist. It was a “dry run” so to speak. A proclamation that was disseminated throughout the land. It’s concepts firmly laid the ground for the coming State and Federal governments.

    The basic thesis is simple: Democracy rules over localities, (smaller groups) the Republic rules over the entire nation (the larger group as a whole). A democracy resides within the Republic and functions within it, to create the Republic.

    I suggest you read it.

  • eaglewingz08

    This comment by Mr. Obama fits right in with his wife’s comment that she was never really proud of this country before her husband was nominated for the Presidency (and elected by those racist wahoos xenophobes here). So the major expansion of democracy in the US, claimed by Obama, was his own election. But if you look at Obama’s own actions towards people yearning for democracy whether in Honduras, Iran, North Korea, Tibet, Ukraine, Georgia, Kyrgzstan, Cuba, Venezuela, Ecuador, etc., it is a brisk slap in the face and a chilly silence.

    How about declaring Harvard the worst, most over-priced university in the nation, arguably the world? OBama’s proud of his Harvard creds … and we get 57 states, corpse-man and democracy, a Harvard degree in “Constitutional … WHAT? Deconstruction?
    And Harvard is notorious for bait and switch – they advertise PhD professors, but provide cheapo teaching assistants while charging the in highest tuition tier in the country.

  • Big L

    He only uses Alfred E. Newman’s smiley-face when with dictators and despots. When talking at the Allies or the American people, he uses snarly-face.
    Obama does not undestand that “trash-talk’ is only for the BB court. You try that stuff out on the world stage, it has consequences. I think that Obama is putting himself and us in grave danger. Those people he smiles at tear faces off for fun.

  • Rhonda Bateman

    “President” Obama obviously wouldn’t know what Democracy is all about and probably couldn’t even use it in a sentence, especially without a teleprompter.
    Besides which, The USA is not a *democracy*…
    We are a REPUBLIC….
