First in Iran..
The Irani Government has announced a deal brokered with Brazil and Turkey to completely circumvent the US at both the UN and in the court of world opinion. The Iranis have agreed, under the supervision of the UN Atomic Energy Agency to transfer part of its uranium to Turkey in exchange of enriched product that can be used, according to them, in a medical laboratory. Russia, China, and several other superpowers (or would-be superpowers) breathed a sigh and applauded the effort. The US continued to press for sanctions, which they will now probably not get. The PR effect alone was a significant slap in the face for Obama Diplomacy. Let's see what comes next.
Then the Great Mexican Arrives...
Felipe Calderon, the President of Mexico, our welfare state to the south, has arrived for a state dinner with Obama and retinue. Both spent part of the morning condemning the new Arizona law as unfair to Mexicans. Well, it seems to me that, whatever you think of the new law, this guy coming to the US and condemning it is incredible. If an American went the other way (Only God would know what for) he/she would be immediately facing a ten year sentence for illegal immigration--no probable cause before stopping you--racial profiling is OK in Mexico. Their jails are somewhat different from ours, and many simply disappear in them. Most are poorly treated--to keep the conversation at a higher level.
Hussain Obama loves the guy and will be feting him for dinner this evening when he should be sending him packing for interfering in our domestic policies. It's our job--our incompetant Congress that is--to fix the immigration issue, not the President of Mexico.
Tuesday was not a great day for the Democrats. They lost and lost badly in states they needed to win. They will lose more as time goes on until they lose in November. Why? Because their greatest cheerleaders are Hussain Obama and Wall Street. The time has come--and it appears to have--that the American people are going to really take back their own government and put a lot of newcomers in DC to try to straighten out this mess that he has created. No blaming anyone else for:
- 4 Trillion Deficit
- The worst economy in years (Perhaps since the great depression, or at least since Jimmy Carter)
- The worst set of cabinet officers in history
- A litany of failed campaign promises
- A healthcare reform debacle that will haunt our children for years
- and much, much more
What else can he do? He still has two more years of screwing up ahead. let's watch and wait. I bet his future failures will be even more spectacular.
