Obama offers lessons in decorum, flawless judgment

Barack Obama bowed deferentially as he approached Cuban dictator Raul Castro to shake hands Tuesday at a memorial service for Nelson Mandela in South Africa. Mandela, also a committed Communist,  had maintained a decade’s long, close relationship with Raul’s brother, Communist tyrant Fidel Castro. In his eulogy, Obama referred to Mandela by his clan name “Madiba.”

In 2009, Obama received well deserved criticism when he warmly shook hands with the late Venezuelan despot Hugo Chavez, an avowed  Socialist and America-hater, who had just urged the audience at the Copenhagen Climate Conference to “fight against capitalism.” Chavez’ anti-capitalism speech won standing ovations from the Third World leaders in attendance.

Three years after Chavez compared George W. Bush to the devil during a speech at the United Nations, the oppressive tyrant tore into Obama, claiming that “it still smells like sulfur in the world,” referring to the same satanic scent.

But the funeral service gave self-absorbed Obama an opportunity to take time out for a Selfie,* smiling broadly as he posed with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at what is meant to be a respectful occasion. Michelle Obama does not look amused.

    Barack Obama is not just an embarrassment, he’s a disgrace.

  2. Orion says:

    He’s also a strutting, narcissistic Marxist who is committed to bringing down the United States of America, whether by submissively bowing to all to the global Commies, taking away our most basic freedoms by federalizing health care, diminishing our Second Amendment rights, expanding government through instituting Common Core principles (which no one I know wants) in our public schools, redistributing our money to “level the playing field,” or opening the floodgates to millions of illegals who will increase the Dem voting base. The leftwing Media is complicit in his actions, (concealing facts on the Fast and Furious, IRS and Benghazi scandals)since they are ideologically joined at the hip…and lip. Obama uses the White House and its perks to travel, vacation and golf. When he’s not out and about, he’s on the tube lying to us, so it’s probably better to have him gone.

    What a shame that this uncouth man represents us to the world. He has no sense of dignity or decorum. My kids have better judgment than this!

    I’ve read several accounts of the traditional tribal rituals used in Nelson Mandela’s funeral. According to some news reports, his body was wrapped in a lion skin while others say it was a leopard skin. An ox was ritually slaughtered in his honor and a family member has been speaking to the body’s spirit around the clock. Where are the outraged and loud voices from the PETA people and others on the left regarding the slaughter of endangered animals or the senseless killing of an ox? More hypocrisy from the liberals, as they revere and sugarcoat the Communist Nelson Mandela.

    His former wife Winnie Mandela, to whom he was married nearly 40 years, was found by the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission to be “politically and morally accountable for the gross violations of human rights,” and had had personally been responsible for the murder, torture, abduction and assault of numerous men, women and children.

  5. Speaker Of Truth says:

    Nelson Mandela has been reconfigured into a saint by the liberal media and far too many who know better but choose silence over truth. Mandela was a committed Communist, who condoned murder of white South Africans, the confiscation of their family owned property and farms and supported the redistribution of wealth, just as Obama advocates. American school children are being taught he was a revered leader, but are not being taught who revered him and what he led. I was no fan of apartheid, but neither am I a fan of distortions of the facts.

    After the brutal suppression of the whites though murder and fires, the often axe wielding blacks who hacked whites to death, took over governmental control and deadly famines taking the lives of millions followed since they had no concept of irrigation or fertilizer techniques and other farming concepts needed to successfully raise the crops or animals necessary to feed the populace.
