FOX News - President Obama endured a 50-minute diatribe from socialist Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega that lashed out at a century of what he called terroristic U.S. aggression in Central America and included a rambling denunciation of the U.S.-imposed isolation of Cuba's Communist government.
Can't quite muster the balls to defend America can they, oh no, America always bad. You see leftists like Hussein and Hillary really do believe all the crap that's spouted by Chavez and all those commie assholes in South America. They won't say it though, just weasel around them and offer some platitudes about moving on and the past, all dutifully swallowed by their shills in the media. Though not all are content to swallow what they offer.Obama sat mostly unmoved during the speech but at times jotted notes. The speech was part of the opening ceremonies at the fifth Summit of the Americas here. Later, at a photo opportunity with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Obama held his tongue when asked what he thought about Ortega's speech.
"It was 50 minutes long. That's what I thought."
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ignored two questions about Ortega's speech, instead offering lengthy praise of a cultural performance of dance and song opening the summit.
Gets real pissy when his hypocrisy is laid out before him and a few tough questions are thrown his way doesn't he. Hussein prefers the easy questions, like what his dog's going to eat, how does a metrosexual like him survive the discrimination and metrophobia in the world, that sort of useless crap.FOX News - ......According to reports, when the Politico's Jonathan Martin asked the president about his nominee for deputy secretary of defense, William Lynn, Obama refused to answer, saying he was not there to take questions. "I came down here to visit. I didn't come down here -- this is what happens. I can't end up visiting you guys and shaking hands if I am going to grilled every time I come down here," the president said.
Pressed further by the Politico reporter about his Pentagon nominee, Obama turned more serious, putting his hand on the reporter's shoulder and staring him in the eye. "All right, come on," he said, with obvious irritation in his voice. "We will be having a press conference, at which time you can feel free to [ask] questions. Right now, I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself to you guys -- that's all I was trying to do," Politico.com reported.
......The nominee in question, William Lynn, is a former lobbyist for defense contractor Raytheon, a pick Obama made in contradiction to his much-heralded anti-lobbying rules. ......Obama was willing to field lighter questions, though. Yes, he's discovered the gym in the White House residence. No, he hasn't played basketball yet on the outdoor White House court because it's been too cold.
Speaking of double-standards, I honestly never expected this from Jackie.
I guess we shouldn't be surprised eh. Jackie gets to live the good life in America and back in Hong Kong. He gets to do what he wants, at least in America, that's for sure but strangely he doesn't feel that the rest of the peasants ought to be given this 'freedom' to do as they please.FOX News - Action star Jackie Chan said Saturday he's not sure if a free society is a good thing for China and that he's starting to think "we Chinese need to be controlled." Chan's comments drew applause from a predominantly Chinese audience of business leaders in China's southern island province of Hainan.
......"I'm not sure if it's good to have freedom or not," Chan said. "I'm really confused now. If you're too free, you're like the way Hong Kong is now. It's very chaotic. Taiwan is also chaotic." Chan added: "I'm gradually beginning to feel that we Chinese need to be controlled. If we're not being controlled, we'll just do what we want."
Very disappointed Jackie, never figured you for an elitist commie prick. Do us all a favor and wake up to yourself will ya.
