After multiple “apology tours,” it’s pretty clear our current commander in chief has a pretty low view of his country and the people he supposedly represents to the world.Well, it seems Obama is up to his old tricks again, firing up that same old “America ain’t all that and a bag of chips” schtick as he addressed a group of young people in Laos.
This time, our delightful leader decided to brag on his people — the citizens of the USA — by referring to them (us) as “lazy.”What a guy, huh?
The American Mirror reports, The president twice called Americans “lazy” today as he addressed a group of young leaders in Laos.“So usually, if you see the environment destroyed, it’s not because that’s necessary for development. It’s usually because we’re being lazy, and we’re not being as creative as we could be about how to do it in a smarter, sustainable way,” Obama said during a town hall meeting.
He also said, “And I believe that the United States is and can be a great force for good in the world. But because we’re such a big country, we haven’t always had to know about other parts of the world.
“If you are in Laos, you need to know about Thailand and China and Cambodia, because you’re a small country and they’re right next door and you need to know who they are,” Obama said.“If you’re in the United States, sometimes you can feel lazy and think we’re so big, we don’t have to really know anything about other people,” he said.
“And that’s part of what I’m trying to change.”
Gee, with a friend like that who needs enemies?
Obama’s behavior on the geopolitical stage has done a great deal to not only weaken our position globally, but also earn us the mockery of many a nation around the world.We’ve gone from the “shining city on the hill” to a bunch of slugs, apparently, if you believe Obama.
If our own leader doesn’t respect our country, why should we expect anyone else to do so?
Whether you are a huge Trump supporter or not, you can’t argue with his sentiment of wanting to make America great again. January 2017 can’t come soon enough.
