Obama should really fire his speechwriter

This speech in Cuba is just a mess of pablum. Truly dire.

Come on, we know they guy can read the teleprompter well. There should have been a decent speech for him to read.

  1. “I think he actually would have preferred to be President of Cuba.”

    Well, he wouldn’t have had to deal with political opposition, which seems to be the thing he hates more than anything else.

    No change there then. The idea that Obama is a great orator is simply spin that a benign media has willingly and knowingly bought hook, line and sinker.

  3. “So let me tell you what I believe. I can’t force you to agree, but you should know what I think. I believe that every person should be equal under the law. Every child deserves the dignity that comes with education, and health care and food on the table and a roof over their heads. I believe citizens should be free to speak their mind without fear — to organize, and to criticize their government, and to protest peacefully, and that the rule of law should not include arbitrary detentions of people who exercise those rights. I believe that every person should have the freedom to practice their faith peacefully and publicly. And, yes, I believe voters should be able to choose their governments in free and democratic elections.”

    You can hate Obama all you like, but you’d have to be an Ecksy to deny there are some fine sentiments in there, and that he’s one of the few guys who can go there, and say that, and not get put in jail for it.

  4. So Much For Subtlety

    He can say it. He doesn’t mean it. This is the man who responded to the Benghazi attack by throwing a man into prison for exercising his First Amendment rights. A man who has systematically used the agencies of the state to harass people who disagree with him – the IRS most obviously but also the EPA and so on through the alphabet soup.

    The fact is Obama is intellectually and politically closer to the Cuban Communists than he is to most White Americans. They too do good rhetoric. They also don’t practice it.

  5. What SMFS says. Prattling on about fine sentiments virtually everyone agrees with is easy, but will of course beguile the gullible and simpletons of the world, but putting them into practice is the true measure of the man and on that scale he is an abject failure.

  6. I don’t know Tim; I liked this:  ” Cuba has emphasized the role and rights of the state; the United States is founded upon the rights of the individual.”

    United States or Courageous State? I’m sure Castro would warmly applaud the manifesto so clearly set out by Richard Murphy yesterday.

    “President Obama chuckled as he recounted the anecdote of Cuban President Raúl Castro having a long list of “flaws in the American system” during his speech Tuesday in Havana, Cuba.

    Obama reeled off the various issues Castro has with the United States and appeared to be in agreement with his Cuban counterpart, saying, “We do have too much money in American politics.”

    “Now, there’s no secret that our governments disagree on many of these issues,” Obama said. “I’ve had frank conversations with President Castro. For many years, he has pointed out the flaws in the American system. Economic inequality, the death penalty, racial discrimination, wars abroad. That’s just a sample. He has a much longer list.”

    Obama snickered and the crowd laughed.

    “But here’s what the Cuban people need to understand,” Obama said. “I welcome this open debate and dialogue. It’s good. It’s healthy. I’m not afraid of it. We do have too much money in American politics, but in America, it’s still possible for somebody like me, a child who was raised by a single mom, a child of mixed race who did not have a lot of money, to pursue and achieve the highest office in the land. That’s what’s possible in America.”

    Obama said Monday during a joint press conference on the communist island that he welcomed Castro’s criticism.

    “I actually welcome President Castro commenting on some of the areas where he feels that we’re falling short because I think we should not be immune or afraid of criticism or discussion,” Obama said.”

    Your boy is a crawling socialism-sucking sack of sell-out treasonous ordure. He takes “on board” the criticism of murdering, torturing socialist scum. And says nothing in return but the usual pathetic tripe.

    Although why not? He and his predecessor have done their best to turn America into a land of murdering, torturing socialist shite itself.
