Donald Rumsfeld Speaks The Truth: Obama Apologizes for America

Obama apologizes for America: Rumsfeld


US President Barack Obama has a habit of apologizing for the United States and did nothing to earn his Nobel Peace Prize, former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld said Sunday.

Asked whether Obama had turned international favor back toward the United States after eight years of president George W. Bush's administration, Rumsfeld rejected the premise.

"No, and I don't think there's data that supports that," he said in an interview with CNN. "I think he has made a practice of trying to apologize for America. I personally am proud of America."

Rumsfeld said Obama was awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize "on hope" instead of his accomplishments, something Obama himself suggested at the time.

"Well, he had not accomplished a thing when he got the Nobel Prize. It was given to him on hope. Had to have been because there wasn't anything that he'd done. He'd been in office 15 minutes," Rumsfeld said.

When he was awarded the prize, Obama acknowledged that he did not feel deserving of the honor only months after becoming president.

"I am both surprised and deeply humbled by the decision of the Nobel Committee. Let me be clear: I do not view it as a recognition of my own accomplishments, but rather as an affirmation of American leadership on behalf of aspirations held by people in all nations," he said.

Rumsfeld is promoting his autobiography "Known and Unknown," which defends many of his controversial actions as defense secretary from 2001-2006 under Bush, including his role in deciding to invade Iraq and establish the "war on terror" prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Wild Thing's comment.......

I am so glad Rumsfled said this. It needs to be said by as many people that have a voice in the media as possible.

Obama has turned America from a country not to be messed with into a proverbial fire hydrant that every mad dog in the world has lined up to lift their leg on.

Obama has sought to apologize for the actions of the USA when addressing a foreign audience--including some of the apologies listed below. The obama has already apologized for the US to nearly 3 billion people across Europe, the Muslim world, and the Americas.

1.. Apology to France and Europe ("America Has Shown Arrogance")

"In America, there's a failure to appreciate Europe's leading role in the world. Instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive."

2. Apology to the Muslim World ("We Have Not Been Perfect") Obama, interview with Al Arabiya, January 27, 2009

"My job to the Muslim world is to communicate that the Americans are not your enemy. We sometimes make mistakes. We have not been perfect. But if you look at the track record, as you say, America was not born as a colonial power, and that the same respect and partnership that America had with the Muslim world as recently as 20 or 30 years ago, there's no reason why we can't restore that."

3. Apology to the Summit of the Americas ("At Times We Sought to Dictate Our Terms")
Obama, address to the Summit of the Americas opening ceremony, Hyatt Regency, Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, April 17, 2009

"I know that promises of partnership have gone unfulfilled in the past, and that trust has to be earned over time. While the United States has done much to promote peace and prosperity in the hemisphere, we have at times been disengaged, and at times we sought to dictate our terms. But I pledge to you that we seek an equal partnership. .......The United States will be willing to acknowledge past errors where those errors have been made."

4. Apology at the G-20 Summit of World Leaders ("Some Restoration of America's Standing in the World")

"I would like to think that with my election and the early decisions that we've made, that you're starting to see some restoration of America's standing in the world. "

These are only a few of the many, too many times obama has apologized for our country. And done so with lies.

The last three democrat administrations, including the current one, have all been run by spoiled unaccomplished children who favor our enemies, support marxism and hate the USA.

We all knew the Nobel Prize was a joke and with Obama receiving it, it only confirms it.

obama's Nobel Prize puts him smack dab in the same camp as Yassar Arafat. Very appropriate.
