The Pink Flamingo has held off on the stupid Obama Cairo speech to see what would come of it. Well, it has been a futile exercise in watching the pandering left and the pandering right pander the great panderer.
His “history” comes directly from Wikipedia.
I wish I could truly say what I think about Obama, but I can’t. The pandering is remarkable to behold.
The world was waxing poetic about Barack Obama’s speech, where he basically sells out Israel, disses the US, and makes an ass Democrat of himself. The man has some serious problems if he thinks that Islam is better than the US. If Jimmy Carter praises his Middle East policy, then we all know it is a disaster waiting to happen and Israel is going to get screwed.
Once upon a time there was a “fairy tale” about a narcissistic emperor who wanted the most perfect costume anyone had ever worn. He was a close horse. Michael Savage does the tale well.

Like Medved said, this was a horrible speech. During the speech he made the little comment that he wanted to ease up on the scrutany of all those adorable little Muslim charities that fund terror.
“…Rules on charitable giving have made it harder for Muslims to fulfill their religious obligation. That’s why I’m committed to working with American Muslims to ensure that they can fulfill zakat,” said Obama, referring to the Muslim obligation to be charitable….”
