Obama's biggest humiliation occurred on Nov 20 2012, but the left wing media said nothing? Thoughts...

KCurtis 2012/12/03 23:51:08
It is
symptomatic of the national condition of the
United States that the worst humiliation ever
suffered by it as a nation, and by a US president
personally, passed almost without comment last
week.
I refer to the November 20 announcement at a
summit meeting in Phnom Penh that 15 Asian
nations, comprising half the world's population,
would form a Regional Comprehensive Economic
Partnership excluding the United States.


President Barack Obama attended the summit
to sell a US-based Trans-Pacific Partnership
excluding China. He didn't. The American
led-partnership became a party to which no-one
came.

Instead, the Association of
Southeast Asian Nations, plus China, India, Japan,
South Korea, Australia and New Zealand, will form
a club and leave out the United States.
As 3
billion Asians become prosperous, interest fades
in the prospective contribution of 300 million Americans -
especially when those Americans decline to take
risks on new technologies. America's great
economic strength, namely its capacity to
innovate, exists mainly in memory four years after
the 2008 economic crisis.

A minor issue in
the election campaign, the Trans-Pacific
Partnership initiative was the object of enormous
hype on the policy circuit. Salon.com enthused on
October 23,
This agreement is a core part of the
"Asia pivot" that has occupied the activities of
think tanks and policymakers in Washington but
remained hidden by the tinsel and confetti of
the election. But more than any other policy,
the trends the TPP represents could restructure
American foreign relations, and potentially the
economy itself.
As it happened, this
grand, game-changing vision mattered only to the
sad, strange people who concoct policy in the
bowels of the Obama administration. America's
relative importance is fading.

    'MUTUAL RESPECT': OBAMA GREETED LIKE A SERVANT BY CAMBODIA'S FIRST LADY

    respect mutual respect obama greeted servant cambodias lady

    During a recent visit to Cambodia, President Barack Obama appeared to have been slighted by the country’s first lady without realizing it.

    Bun Rany, wife of Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen, appeared to greet Obama with a dismissive gesture meant to be used in addressing servants. The incident occurred after a “tense” meeting between Sen and Obama over human rights concerns the WH has with Cambodia’s government.

    In the placement of her hands and her posture towards Obama, Bun Rany appeared to be insulting the president when she was introduced to him, according to the Investor’s Business Daily. Her husband looked on during the exchange, smiling.
    Other commenters claim that Bun Rany was trying to greet President Obama as a peer through her gesture, but the Investor’s Business Daily editorial board claimed the move was “a little dig that was probably lost on him but not to Asians.”

    Obama is a failure at everything, his 4.5 million new jobs does not include losses, if you include those we are negative 300,000 to a million jobs. And the ones created are crap jobs.

    "This figure of 4.5 million new jobs created by Obama became the mantra of the left to show that Obama had turned the economy around. Since employment, jobs and the economy are, collectively, the issue which is singularly most important to voters in this 2012 Presidential election campaign, the institutional claim by the Democratic Party of 4.5 million new jobs deserves fact checking.

    CNN's Tom Foreman and Erin Burnett ran the 4.5 million new jobs claim to ground in their fact checking. Foreman said that the problem with the Democrat's claim wasn't in the math, but in the context. While 4.5 million private sector jobs have been added during this administration, Burnett said, the problem is that there were also “many jobs lost. In fact, there were five million private sector jobs lost. So, net jobs lost, private sector, 500,000,” said Burnett. She said that if you look at other jobs, including government jobs, “the picture is actually much worse. In terms of net loss, we are still 1.1 million jobs in the hole under this administration.”"

    No I wasn't. All I said was what is it with the race? How whould have Romney been worse? Obama already has a record and he lied about is and Romney's record as well. A people bought it.
    Obama has no plan but to raise taxes. his own Father said it would be good to raise taxes to 100 percent" you think anyone with any wealth will stick around? Then who will he go after? The rest of us. That's who.
    The next four years are not going to be rough. They are going to be a disaster.

    As long as republicans continue to fight moving forward with new 'green' technology, space exploration and science in general. We as a nation, will fall deeper into the abyss. "We lead the world in only three categories: number of incarcerated citizens per capita, number of adults who believe angels are real, and defense spending."

    Whoa Trigger! BUSH cut the 'shuttle program' which was scheduled to end in 2011.
    NASA was hoping to acquire lots of business launching satellites for other countries, but that didn't pan out because the competition from others countries proved they could do it cheaper. The 'space program' is still alive, a little derailed maybe, but far from dead.

    Well, 'green technology' is a very wide ranging term. China did ease up on their exporting restrictions, but that should not be our focus. The DOE has funded many projects to develop materials that won't need rare-earth-materials. I'm really encouraged that we are moving in that direction when I read out electric hybrids for instance. The debate over 'going green' and 'climate change' is over. Its time to embrace change and acknowledge without doing so, we will end up in third world status as you predict.

    Bush cut it? Really, news media would have eaten that up, but I guess you missed the fact that Obama ended it.

    Hybrids? Subsidized by the Government at a rate of 30k per! Yea that amounts to the start of statism in other words business run and managed by the government. We got those, ever hear of the US Postal Service?

    I'd like to edit one thing I said. The shuttle program was set to close in 2010 not 2011. The Bush Administration cancelled the program in the wake of the 'Columbia' accident. Obama only continued the shutdown in his fiscal 2010 budget.

    Again, relax and don't overreact. The government is NOT taking over the private sector.

    The shuttle program was obsolete. In large part, NASA was the victim of its own internal politics and its failure to support innovation and true scientific advancement. However, rather than shake up the agency and fire it up to get back on track, Obama deemed it worthless and cut funding.

    Obama cut "space program II" not bush, there was a replacement for the space shuttle in process and OBAMA killed it.
