Last week, speaking to a group of community leaders from ASEAN, The Association of Southeast Asian Nations, President Obama made the hilarious claim that HE has restored this nation’s standing in the world. No lie. He said “People don’t remember, but when I came into office, the Untied States in world opinion ranked below China and just barely above Russia, and today once again, the Untied States is the most respected country on earth.”
Just in case you really do think this a joke, here’s the actual clip of him making the claim.
Funny how other countries show their “respect.” The leaders of Saudia Arabia, Oman and Bahrain couldn’t even be bothered to attend Obama’s little confab at Camp David. Egypt led airstrikes in Libya without asking “mother, may I?” And we don’t even need to go into what Benjamin Netanyahu thinks of him…Hat tip once again to Stilton Jarlsberg at Hope n’ Change Cartoons for this one.
