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.

    “[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.

    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.

    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.

    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.”

  • firewifem

    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.

  • gus

    The EPA does not respect our Democracy.

  • Ruth

    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.

    May 14th Sedition/Treason Trial

    C.I.A. COLUMBIA OBAMA Sedition and Treason TRIAL!
    “… evidence showing that Columbia University was complicit in the cover-up that allowed Barack Hussein Obama to be in Afghanistan and Pakistan as an Arabic-speaking, non-U.S. citizen Muslim working with the Mujahedeen and the C.I.A in helping to force the Russians out of Afghanistan in the early 1980s.”


    Rally. Your Call to Duty!

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


    He meant to say “implode” and misread Telly Prompter.

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


    I’m just surprised that the angle of the photo wasn’t taken so that the sun on the blue and yellow flag was behind his head, a la halo.
