Tyler (KETK) — Brit Hume on President Obama: "This is man Megyn, who's vision of the world has turned out to be a mirage. His own sense of the world on how it would react to him has also turned out to be a mirage. This is a man who told someone I know "Wouldn't it be great for the world if I were president." And I think he truly believed Megyn, the size of the american footprint in the world especially the military was a big reason for the troubles we had. And if he were elected with the approach that he took with the ideas he was going to end the wars...he would be such a breath of fresh air on the world stage our adversaries would look at him differently and look at the U.S. differently."
President Obama during his campain for president: "I truly believe that the day I'm inaugurated that not only does the country look at itself differently, but the world will look at America differently. If I'm reaching out to the Muslim world they understand that I've lived in a Muslim country and I may be a Christian, but I also understand their point of view. And I think the world will have confidence that I am listening to them. That will ultimately make us safer."
I think what you are seeing now is the president having to for the first time in his life confront the fact he is no different from any other man who held that office or any other man in the country.
What you are seeing in the world now is what happens when the United States sits on it's hands and call the world's problems a "manageable problem."
That's my point of view, what's yours?
