Good grief.
Even the socialist president of Brazil is lecturing Obama on fiscal policy.

How embarrassing. Even the the most radical of world leaders are lecturing Obama on economics.
Reuters reported:

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff complained about U.S. monetary policy and expressed concern that sanctions against Iran could backfire in a meeting with President Barack Obama on Monday, highlighting strains between the Western Hemisphere’s two biggest democracies.

Rousseff said low interest rates and other expansionist policies in wealthy nations have created a glut of global liquidity, which in turn has the unintended effect of damaging growth in poorer countries such as Brazil.

She also raised concerns with Obama that sanctions against Iran could fuel tensions in the Middle East and cause a spike in oil prices, threatening the global economic recovery, sources told Reuters on condition of anonymity.

Her comments punctuated a generally cordial White House visit that yielded some modest advances in cooperation on aviation and technology sharing, but also exposed clear differences on trade, economic policy and foreign affairs.

“Expansionist monetary policies … ultimately lead to a depreciation in the value of the currencies of developed countries, thus impairing growth outlooks in emerging countries,” Rousseff told reporters in the Oval Office, as Obama looked on.

Obama, who spoke first, struck a more conciliatory tone, calling Rousseff a “good friend.” He congratulated Brazil for making “extraordinary progress” in reducing poverty.

That’s really sad. Even the socialist president of Brazil has reduced poverty while under Obama poverty has soared in the US.

  1. I thought that look was reserved for his meetings with PM Netanyahu. But, apparently not. The general election can’t come soon enough. We’d all better work our tails off to make sure this man is not re-elected.


    Maybe he should go back to golfing..BUT…
    he doesn’t need 1 single soiltary vote come November. He and his marxist/facist/collectivist media will call it for him as a win. Wait and see.

  3. I bet he may even have told her that “Brazil consistently punches above its weight” and that we have “no finer ally than Brazil” what a guy

  4. He looks like he is having another nic fit.

  5. Don’t worry about the so called election. It’s already wrapped up.

    I think they are located in spain…..Mooches real reason for her trip to spain a while back?


    Why is a company based in Spain who counts votes in Athens Greece now teaming up with the Commonwealth of Virginia to count the overseas ballots of our military members? Who in the DOD and the FEC and the Congress approved this ?

    Who authorized a foreign company access to our vote count ?

    This is treason and a set-up to steal the election for obooboo.
    He doesn’t need a single vote. He’s got this so-called election all wrapped up.
    His donors are being punked for their cash.

    In 2008 campaign, Soros called obooboo and hillary into a meeting and said he wanted to take this country down and obooboo said “no problem” so he got to ‘win” the so-called election. can someone get rid off soros or has he paid off everyone in congress except Ron Paul?

  6. A good friend of a Socialist is a Socialist, too.

    ‘“His primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.”

    If you think this is a psychological profile of Barack Obama, you would be wrong. It is a quote from a profile of Adolph Hitler, prepared for the Office of Strategic Services—the predecessor of the Central Intelligence Agency—by Walter C. Langer and three others during World War II.’

  7. mark, you’re close. it’s: “Brazil punches above my mental weight.”

    That said, you gotta feel for the guy. All those days spent blowing off class, feeling pretty, thinking “the prof loves how I rattle off the communist slogans with ease. this class is an easy A. i don’t even have to crack open the textbook.”

    so much for Econ. International Politics. Communications. Algebra. Mr. “Takes me 7 shots while the camera isn’t looking to make a lay-up so I can teach those Harlem Globetrotters about Basketball” is struggling to understand this wall that keeps hitting him in the forehead. Lousy games of golf with boyfriend Reggie apparently isn’t making things any better either.

  8. “expansionist monetary policies…ultimately lead to depreciation in the value of the currencies of developed countries, thus impairing growth outlooks in emerging countries,” …he knows that lady that is why he is doing it.

  9. Our First White Afro Un-American President has already given Brazil BILLIONS OF MONEY, FOR A NEW OIL REFINERY…. GAVE THEM BILLIONS FOR OFF SHORE DRILLING….!

    Remember…. He told Brazil that we will be their biggest customer for the oil we already paid for….

  10. and unless things have changed he was stiffed by the same brazil…..

  11. Butch looks like she could box. Bama looks worried she might punch above his weigh and light his ass up. Or maybe he’s got a woody for her.

  12. [“The book relates a couple out of the dozen-and-a-half conversations that I had with him,” Lott told The Daily Caller. ”But they were all very short, cut off by Obama turning his back on me and walking away.”]…….[Obama and I overlapped for four years at the University of Chicago Law School, though he was rarely around. When Obama joined the school as a part-time lecturer, it was made quite clear to everyone that he was going to use the job to run for public office. Being a part-time lecturer with no research responsibilities left him with the opportunity to spend almost all of his week to go out and campaign for office.] obama in a nutshell….i can’t say much about john lott’s recollection of obama but hmmm.

  13. Obama didn’t tell her that Brazil punches above their weight?

    I noticed Obama hadn’t raised the finger in that pic.

    I’m sure she got it sometime during their visit.

  14. [Even the socialist president of Brazil has reduced poverty while under Obama poverty has soared in the US.] have to wonder if that’s just part of the balancing act…..lifting up poor nations while dropping the U.S. to the point where they’re even. everyone on the same level very much obamalike.

  15. I’m brazilian, and the communist Dilma Rouseff did not reduce poverty. The Worker’s Party there is collaborating with terrorists from FARC through an organization called Foro de Sao Paulo, crime is soaring, and they follow every leftist U.N. policy to help criminals. The economic development is illusory, because Brazil has a huge national debt.

    The Worker’s Party also receive money from George Soros, just like Obama. The communists in Brazil and Barry Hussein are frighteningly similar in many aspects.
