Bolton: ‘A Post-American Speech By Our First Post-American President’
John Bolton: I Was Shaken & Disturbed by Obama's Speech at United Nations
Former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton tells NRO that President Obama’s address to the U.N. was “a post-American speech by our first post-American president. It was a speech high on the personality of Barack Obama and high on multilateralism, but very short in advocating American interests.”
“It was a very naïve, Wilsonian speech, and very revealing of Obama’s foreign policy,” says Bolton. “Overall, it was so apologetic for the actions of prior administrations, in an effort to distance Obama from them, that it became yet another symbol of American weakness in the wake of the president’s decision to abandon missile sites in Poland and the Czech Republic, and his recent manifest hesitation over what to do in Afghanistan.”
“The most significant point of the speech was how the president put Israel on the chopping block in a variety of references, from calling Israeli settlements in the West Bank illegitimate to talking about ending ‘the occupation that began in 1967.’ That implies that he supports going back to 1967 borders,” says Bolton. “Obama has a very tough road ahead. He is frequently taking the side of the Palestinians, who don’t have a competent leader who can make hard decisions and compromises in the future.”
Also noteworthy, Bolton says, was how Obama highlighted “just how much of American foreign policy that he wants to run through the U.N.”
“Usually presidential speeches at the U.N. are ‘state of the world’ addresses. Obama’s speech was filled with talk about U.N. bodies, U.N. treaties, and sending Secretary of State Clinton to a conference on the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, which would be an incredible waste of time for her. The president’s speech showed a fascination with U.N.-centric issues. Obama talked about getting past ‘balance of power’ politics. He talked about the interests that unite us rather than divide us.”
Bolton’s conclusion: “It was all extremely naïve. The president did everything he could to say: ‘Can’t we all just get along?’”
Wild Thing's comment........
The only apologizing I want to hear is from the people who voted for Obama.
I hate him, I hate how he insults my country. I hate him for what he is doing with our awesome troops and HE is getting them killed. I hate himi for what he has done and will continue to do to our beloved America.
But guess what the feeling is mutual, Obama has made is VERY freaking clear he hates us he hates our military and he sure as hell hates America. If we are to be judged by our deeds then all we have to look at his actions and we have proof of his hate in all the areas I have mentioned.
.... Thank you Jim for sending this to me.

John Bolton speaks the unscrubbed truth. It is what it is, and I was shaken by the speech as well. Evil walks amongst us.

Those who voted for him sold us down the river for a few cheap shiny trinkets. He had them believing that he was some kind of magic God who would cure their ills and give them all their wants with some kind of magic wand. Guess what? Nothing has happened for the better. It's gotten worse. I don't know if he's evil or just plain stupid yet.

This is all about a World Government. Where we fit in is yet to be determined. It won't be good. Obama is about to give up our sovereignty for a chance to be King. Our enemies have got to be rubbing their hands in anticipation of the gains they can make at our expense, due to our ever weakening position in the world.
He should listen to his own words. Out of one side of his mouth he says, we can do anything, when it comes to "Green Energy", then out of the socialist side he says, we chose to interfere in matters of other countries and starts his apologies for past trespasses. His world view is that of the riches of this country have been stolen from third world countries around the world, so thats why they are poor, because of our imperialism, and not earned.
Obama's philosophy is, his justice denies that the loss of freedom for some is made right by a greater good shared by others. He believes our rights come from the Government not from God. Which means that if the Government grants certain rights they can be taken away.
Cass Sunstein's new bill of rights, which is rehashed FDR crap, is all about the redistribution of the wealth. The wealth, generations of Americans have earned, "unfairly" according to them. Regardless, this is the route they are on.
It should now be clear that our job as True Americans is to destroy, their ideas, their institutions and their philosophy if we are to survive.
Watching this ACORN corruption thing the organization is coming apart. This says, they have a weak foundation and the way to get them is to start battering at the pins that hold up these corrupt organization by knocking out of couple of their pillars the whole organization will start to collapse of it own weight. Because, corruption and greed is the foundation of their organization.

John Bolton is a man I would like to see in a future high office, be it elected or appointed.
Bolton must be livid at obama's trash talking America at the UN. Bolton tried to defend American interests while he was UN ambassador. Because he properly stepped on toes and talked straight, he was thrown under the bus by Bush when UN delegates and American liberals complained.

I agree with TomR. We need Bolton in the White House.

Mark, I agree that is exactly what we
have to do.
