Obama will revisit his CAIRO SPEECH? OH, my GOSH..........

Get a load of THISDo you ever get the feeling that Obama blames Americans for the rift with muslims?  I understand that he's apparently trying to build bridges and make muslims less angry at us, but....don't you figure the 'average muslim' on the street is thinking "GeeeZ, muslim nuts killed 3000 Americans and their president's trying to make US feel better about THEM?"   Check these Obama phrases from his speech out:

"Forcefully returning to a theme he sounded last year in visits to Turkey and Egypt, Obama said: "I have made it clear that America is not and never will be at war with islam ... Those who want to build must not cede ground to terrorists who seek to destroy."
Reaching out to the Islamic world, Obama said efforts to build trust and peace are showing promise but are still clearly incomplete.
"Relations between the United States and Muslim nations have been frayed over many years. As president, I have made it a priority to begin to repair these relations," Obama said.
He said both sides have a choice: either "be defined by our differences and give in to a future of suspicion and mistrust" or "do the hard work of forging common ground and commit ourselves to the steady pursuit of progress." 

Here's another clip from the end of the linked article:

China and Germany, however, have suggested that the U.S. Federal Reserve's announcement last week that it would in effect print $600 billion to buy longer-term U.S. Treasury bonds over the next eight months — in an effort to drive down interest rates and stimulate the U.S. economy — had further driven down an already weak dollar, worsening global trade tensions.

Of course, they're probably absolutely right.  I wish so much that he would LISTEN.

Tell me something, what would you like Obama to tell muslim audiences in muslim countries?  Pretend you're him (now, now....I said "pretend"), and tell us in COMMENTS what you think would be important for him to say.  ("I quit" doesn't count :-)

I'd like him to tell the Muslims to, "stop calling us Frances"...

Speedy G said...

btw - I'm now "blocked" from visiting Angel's "Woman Honor Thyself" blog. It's classified as a "Hate & Discrimination" website.

Don't be surprised is I stop visiting you here, soon, as well. Apparently the world LOVES to censor dissent, especially that of the "Tea Party" variety.

I'd love to hear POTUS say "OK, these assholes that attacked us are from your ranks, clean up your mess"...

"Since the 1950s, America has had the technology to strategically emplace tungsten steel rods in orbit, and have them fall like meteors at will upon precise locations. The impact of just one rod falling from low earth orbit carries the explosive kinetic energy force of a atomic bomb, with the added bonuses of zero radiation and plausible deniability. Any target upon the Earth could be struck within four minutes of the firing command. Now, our demands are simple. Your countries are to change their names to 'US Military Kinetic Bombardment Testing Range' and begin evacuating the population to well.... another planet."

"...and by the way, thanks for the Algebra that made it possible."

"As president, I have everything on my entire agenda as a top priority.

"While it is getting hard to read the top line of my list, and there are no other lines, rest assured that warm fuzziness over Islam is within the first 17 items in the top priority list."

Sheesh! He has a lot of top priorities!

Muslims have been angry about us for way longer than that. Their complaints are just the latest excuse for their holy jihad against all non-muslims.

On another topic, did you get the re-sent email? The first one was returned, the second one not. Or did I not get the addy correct?

Anonymous said...

What's up with Obama's infatuation with Muslims ... especially those enlightened souls who don't want to touch the missus? From yesterday's visit to the Indonesian mosque ...

Tifatul Sembiring, a conservative Muslim who refuses to touch women he is not related to tweeted: "I tried to prevent it with my two hands but Mrs Michelle moved her hands too close to me, then we touched."

Z said...

Speedy, who classifies Angel's site as 'Hate and Discrimination'?
When have I ever censored YOU as Speedy G? YOu were blocked as Speedy or your.......shall we say...different avatar?

Born Again..NOW we're talkin'. Me, too.

Beamish, you are Freaking BRILLIANT and I'm laughing my head off. But, you know, if we just had some TEETH in threats or even if we still carried some clout which actually scared fanatics, they'd stop trying. Bush had that, Obama just looks like he's trying to be their friend, NOT what you do with muslim fanatics who only respect PRIDE AND POWER. Sadly, our State Department and President simply don't understand everybody was NOT raised watching Sesame Street.
(by the way..that rod thing..can we REALLY do that?) :-)

Opus, I've not rec'd it, no. (You sure you put in 3 of the vowels and not more or less?)
and, you're right..the silliness of lefties who blame Bush's Iraq on Muslim fanatics is just too ridiculous...no history lessons studied, apparently.

Waylon...refuses to touch women not related to him? WOW. Mrs. Obama degraded him.
Join the crowd, Tifatul.

beamish said...

The next Islamic terrorist attack on Americans will be entirely Michelle Obama's fault. Her insensitive, offensive touching of a pious Muslim man without washing the sub-human American female filth from her hands is a grievous insult to Muslims everywhere and one far worse than drawing a picture of Muhammad. One day, Americans will stand above the corpses of their dead and openly shout "Allahu ackbar!" in recognition of the beauty of Islamic culture and their right to defend themselves from living on the planet with non-Muslims.

Craig and Heather said...

I have nothing of value to offer concerning your main point.

But your post did make me wonder how long it will be before the American dollar has been "inflated" to the point of complete worthlessness.

Z,

(by the way..that rod thing..can we REALLY do that?)

Yes we can!

Or could... it just takes a President willing to decide that logic dictates that problems are not problems if they no longer exist.

DaBlade said...

We know Obama insisted on covering up Jesus and the cross when he addressed Christians at Georgetown University. I'd like him to be consistent when addressing a Muslim audience by covering up their religious symbols (whatever those might be)... stars and croissants? severed heads?

Brooke said...

Oh, my sides! Beamish has me falling out of my chair!

Honestly, I have a hard time pretending to be something so hateful and alien as Obama.

Speedy G said...

You are well within your rights to censor me and my avatars, just as those who block me from viewing Angel's are within theirs. I only wish I knew the real reasons. I suspect it wasn't just the "tight pants". Some of my "persona's" are purposefully offensive. But then, sometimes tit-4-tat devices are necessary to convey a point that other might be missing.

Stanley Kowalski said...

...and sometimes you just like being obnoxious!

Ducky's here said...

Ah, far right diplomacy. The right continues to expect a president to visit a heavily Muslim country and get everything going by telling them, "I'm going to go medieval on your arse".

Ducky's here said...

heather, we have to pay down the debt. That's accepted. When and how are a question.

This Fed seems to think he rest of the world is filled with stooges who will continue to purchase treasury debt AND accept repayment in devalued dollars.

Stanley Kowalski said...

Beat it ducky, you're a character WAY beyond my powers of satirical imitation...

Stanley Kowalski said...

...and most of the time you get censored, you're just throwing long disproven dirt around.

Z said...

beamish, do you EVER stop running out of brains? I'm with Brooke...laughing myself sick here :-)

DaBlade, you too!...severed heads!

Speedy...your opinions are welcome here, the avatar was not....it's our blogs, all we ask is that you show your better side (so to speak :-)
You made it sound like somebody other than ANgel's blocking you...as if some BLOG CENSOR thing's going on...I don't think that's the case but, if it is, please let me know.

Ducky, this president needs to learn and remember well that when he speaks to Muslims, he represents US and WE ARE LISTENING... as if he gave a damn about what we think.
Nobody's asking Obama to go there and threaten...we're asking him to MAYBE remind them what THEIR FANATICS did and that MAYBE he can encourage muslims to report problems they hear/see and be on the alert TO PROTECT US? I see nothing untoward in that. "MODERATE MUSLIMS" should be on board, huh?

As for the DEFICIT, what the left has to learn is that you can't reduce it and keep spending. WHat's so hard about that?
Yes, it's going to take AWFUL program cutting but something has to happen, and soon. Trouble is, your people have raised entitlement generations and they aren't going to like what it's going to take to get us out of the trouble welfare monies given to them contributed to.

Z said...

Stanley....Ducky doesn't get censored here for his opinions (nobody does), he gets censored for belittling, untoward sarcasm, name-calling, etc.
Your friend,
Stella
Or maybe Blanche...

Speedy G said...

It is the case. Every IT group has its' slavish minions who protect the bottom line. This week I'm being 'protected' from 'hate and discrimination' speech. Next week, perhaps, it will be ballet dancers in tight leotards.

And before the picture it was the name you objected to.

I don't mind altering a character's name or avatar to suit the blog owners taste. It's when you then journey to my "profile" and beyond in an attempt to censor the content of MY blogs that I become resentful...

Titan said...

and btw - Your makeover has made me 100x more offensive than the previous avatar could have ever been.

Craig and Heather said...

heather, we have to pay down the debt. That's accepted. When and how are a question.

My guess is that printing more money so as to significantly devalue that which is already in circulation isn't going to do the trick.

Drastically cutting spending would help...but, as Z pointed out, that would probably require that we cut out a lot of non-basic govt programming.

I don't want to derail the discussion. It's just the part of the post that I latched onto.

Titan said...

...but of course, I've got a little (emphasis on little) more class than that. ;)

beamish said...

Z,

beamish, do you EVER stop running out of brains?

I ran out of brains a long time ago. They're over-rated anyway. Instinct's where it's at.

beamish said...

Titan / Speedy / etc.,

Once is a mistake, twice is jazz, thrice is noise.

Speedy G said...

What's four? Canasta?

Craig and Heather said...

I thought it was a pretty reasonable conclusion for someone who claims to have traded brains for instinct.

beamish said...

Four is thrice too many and twice too much.

Some things you just know without empirical verification.

And if you're wrong, it doesn't matter. Your mind's made before the thought.

Craig and Heather said...

LOL

Speedy G said...

Indeed.

beamish said...

ROFLMAO!

Z said...

Speedy, I don't think the avatar was respectful to any blog.
As for your profile, all I did was comment, I can't censor your own profile or your blog and have no intention to do so, anyway.

Heather, seems to me that you're absolutely right about money devaluing... There's some deficit committee which has just come up with fine solutions to shrinking our deficit but they need 18 of them to approve before it goes to Congress/the president....they can't get it.
They're all too afraid of their jobs to actually want to FOLLOW THROUGH on their OWN suggestions..how's that for American gov't at work?

Oops..I take that back; the ideas are STUPID.
Mustang just sent the link above via email and he says this plan includes doing away with mortgage deductions! IMagine how that would affect our housing market? "Good job, JERKS....just what we need!" (Oh, my GOD)

Canada doesn't allow for mortgage deductions and it somehow works but we're far too entrenched in it to go back now. I bought my home years ago on my own, before Mr Z, largely because I was getting killed in taxes! We've owned 3 homes in between and sold them but we still own this, the one I'm living alone in again....

Well, maybe I have to sit back and say to myself "You are the one who's always saying we'll have to tighten our belts to reduce this deficit.." SO, I have to suck it up.

Maybe I"ll post this topic, not sure.

Respectful? No, it certainly wasn't that. But I didn't think it would have violated a PG standard of decency either. I'm sorry if it offended you. I won't use it again.

But I still need something a "little" provocative. Otherwise, mr. ducky might never speak with me again... ;)

Interesting article.

You're probably right about the belt-tightening. I have a feeling we all may need to cinch in a bit.

Leticia said...

I would say,"Today I will sorrowfully relinquish my honored position of being president of the United States of America.

I don't know what I am doing and I have run this once great nation into the proverbial ground.

As of today, I will pass the torch to a more conservative and patriotic person that will get this nation back on top where it belongs and who will embrace and honor its Christian heritage and uphold the constitution.

Z, I had no idea what to say, but this is really wishful thinking, hee....

Craig and Heather said...

Ducky,
You quoted me, so I assume you are speaking to me?


So explain to me why you think alienating as many Muslims as possible is sound strategy.

I don't recall saying anything about "alienating Muslims", although I do think it is odd that there seems to be such hesitance by our leaders to identify the known terrorist threat as distinctly Islamic in nature.

During the Cold War era, I don't recall anyone having a problem with using the words "Soviet Union" or "Russian" in connection with potential threats--even though not all Russians personally were trying to destroy the US.

Costs a lot to make sure the far right feels safe from the scary Muslims.

I'm kind of thinking that if Islamic writings did not contain directives to either forcibly convert or obliterate those who are not of the faith, people might not be so agitated. The fact is that some Muslims take those teachings very seriously and apply them on a global scale

Heather's responding to DUcky. Sadly, he had to be deleted again.
Ducky, stop.
Nobody in the whole free world thinks there's no threat to America from islam but you. I delete you spare myself having built a blog only to give a jerk like Keith Olbermann a voice. THat'd be you Ducky, and it's not happening anymore.. EVER.
I also delete so others won't get quite the lousy impression of your thinking that I have to just before I delete.
thanks.

We are at war with Islam and they started it.

Anonymous said...

"I say this to the Muslim world. If you want peace, practice peace. Withdraw your Jihad.

If you will not we will not. Since the declaration of war still stands, then we will stand against you, and will not bend to your will.

Your words of peace ring hollow, your actions speak loudly of aggression. Those who speak of Islamic reformation and cooperation are welcomed, but they are too few.

The American people are our concern, and they will be defended and protected at whatever cost we must bear.

This is my duty, and my charge as President of the United States and I will honor it with all my might. America bows to no one."


Ok Z, that's my speech for Obama. I love fairy tales don't you?

Z said...

FABULOUS, Pris, I WISH! THAT is what I was looking for, thank you so much.

Shoprat, I have missed you! Good to have you back and, as usual, you're so right in so few words.

Karen Howes said...

Wow... just when you thought he couldn't put his head any further up Muslims' backsides.

Since he couldn't really say, "F you", the next best thing would be to say that we will no longer kowtow to violence or threats of violence-- and challenge them to prove that Islam is truly a religion of peace by actively combating terrorism.
