Barack Obama slammed President Bush and defended his atrocious foreign policy while introducing John Kerry as his Secretary of State nominee today in Washington DC.

“When I took office, our nation was engaged in two wars, and al Qaeda was entrenched in their safe havens. Many of our alliances were frayed, and America’s standing in the world had suffered. Over the past four years, we’ve begun a new era of American leadership. We ended the war in Iraq, put the al Qaeda core on the path to defeat, and we’re winding down the war in Afghanistan. We’ve strengthened our alliances, including in Asia; forged new coalitions to meet global challenges; and stood up for human dignity, from North Africa to the Middle East to Burma.”

Here’s Barack:

Now lets look at the facts:

** When I took office al-Qaeda was entrenched in their safe havens.
(Today Al-Qaeda is on the rise throughout northern Africa and the Middle East)
** Many of our alliances were frayed
(Name one.)
** America’s standing in the world had suffered.
(Thanks to Democrats and the liberal media’s constant attacks on Bush and the military)
** We’ve ended the war in Iraq
(Thanks to George Bush this was already put into place before Obama came into office.)
** Put Al-Qaeda core on the path of defeat
(Tell that to Ambassador Stevens.)
** We’ve stood up for human dignity.
(Except when we didn’t like for the Iranians during the Green Revolution, for women in Taliban controlled Afghanistan, for the people suffering in Syria…)

The sad thing is Barack Obama and his media lapdogs believe this ridiculous pabulum.
And he continues to get away with these insulting and absurd remarks.

  1. Obama lives in another dimension. To go out there and utter that crap with any modicum of decency is the height of ignorant gall.

    Worst. pResident. Ever.

  2. some great tweets on today’s announcement:

    from ‏@MarkSimoneNY

    Dems trash Romney for being from Mass, rich, preppy, having too many homes, then pick a Sec of State with all the same stuff.

    Obama hated Mass. Millionaire Romney for only paying %17 taxes, now he appoints Mass. Millionaire Kerry who only paid 12% in taxes.

    In case you forgot what a fraud John Kerry is, take a listen to this – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmCDrdTI1Ho

  3. oops — one more (this guy is on a roll!)

    MARK SIMONE ‏@MarkSimoneNY

    Only thing Romney had that Kerry has never had is an actual job.

  4. The sad thing is that I have heard from Bush II, speaking out politically, exactly ONCE since he left office. The urgent message we needed to hear after we lost the 2012 election? Let’s conduct our discussion of how to handle illegal aliens in our country in a compassionate manner.

    Bush is STILL the guy who drove the Republican party into the ground with his liberal, big spending, compassionate conservative ways.

  5. @ Oliver – the main difference between Romney and Kerry – Romney doesn’t hate America nor it’s armed forces.

  6. Didn’t Kerry vote for the Iraq War?

  7. @ Red State Gal – Bush was the right person for the right time in American history in regards to the war on Terror – however, he was the wrong person when it came to spending.

    However, much of that spending was directly related to the war of terror and it’s associated technology.

  8. ” We’ve stood up for human dignity.”

    50 million plus dead children disagree. I can not imagine how any American who claims to be a Democrat could possibly claim to stand up for human dignity.

  9. I was thinking about selling Obama 2016 bumper stickers. Any of you guys want one?

    What has America become?

    albeit debatable, he was re-elected, that should
    answer the question, unfortunately, it does not..

    Kerry Silent at State Announcement

    http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/kerry-silent-state-announcement_690902.html

    President Barack Obama sang John Kerry’s praise today, as he nominated the former presidential candidate to be the next secretary of state. But after the president spoke, Kerry did not.

    It is highly unusual for the person being nominated not speak at the press conference being held for him. Nevertheless, that’s what happened today at the White House.

    ( snipped )

  15. O/T :Looks like the Conservative revolt may have worked, albeit, slightly.

    Congress holds the purse strings,

    Democrats were in the majority for most of the BA term..

    Bush Jr had a slim Republican majority in the house until 2007 when the Democrats gain a 233-198 majority. The Senate was split 50-50 at the beginning of his first term and 49-49-2 at the end of his second term. The democrat party had control of both the the House and Senate, starting January 4th, 2007, when the recession began. The democrats kept control until the voters chose the republican party to reclaim the House starting on January 3rd, 2011, after the first two years of Barack Obama’s presidency.

    both parties suck at spending, however, Obama makes Bush
    look like a cheapskate in every aspect of the word meaning..

  17. Not a shred of honor or decency in this man….alinskyite agitator all the time. Speaking of McCain and Graham, yes they will slobber all over their good friend and btw where are they now on Bengazi? Nowhere! Iknew they wouldn’t follow thru.

  18. Agree with you totally RedStateGal–Bush had a few good points but overall was pathetic. I don’t care what he believes about presidential dignity, he should never have let(and continue to let) the dictator insult him. By allowing this it reflects also on those of us who voted for him. He has a responsibility to stand up for us but has not done it. Another wimp republican who let’s the leftist insult all of us with impunity. It is just disgusting and reflects poorly on republicans.
