Obama’s tour of Southeast Asia included mocking greeting from Cambodian First Lady
Investor’s Business Daily runs an editorial titled:Obama’s Southeast Asia Trip All Style, No Substance. The complete and harsh appraisal is well worth reading. We’ll tantalize you with this brief two paragraph summation:
“No substance, no influence. Nothing underlined this quite like the lack of crowds greeting Obama in all three nations. When a leader’s visit is cause for hope and a catalyst for change — think Pope John Paul II’s 1978 Poland visit — crowds turn out. Obama, supposedly representing the greatest nation on earth, couldn’t draw so much as an Occupy-sized crowd. Nor did he draw respect.
On his trip to Cambodia, a country he claimed didn’t deserve a visit due to its strongman government, first lady Bun Rany greeted Obama with a traditional “sampeah” pressed-hands greeting reserved for servants, a little dig that was probably lost on him but not to Asians. So what is really Obama’s tour about? Apparently a get-out-of-town photo-op all about himself as a means of avoiding pressing problems back home. The Asians deserve better — and so do the Americans.”
Seeing Red AZ has documented many of this subservient fool’s deferential greetings to Muslim royals, dictators from repressive Communist regimes, emperors, despots and even a mayor.
