To Preserve U.S. Dominance, Cut Off Obama’s Hands?

By Yul

You’d think Barack Obama French-kissed Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez at the Summit of the Americas the other day, for all the hoo-ha their handshake caused.

As Obama meets other world leaders for the first time, some people are upset that he’s politely listening rather than preaching. Doesn’t he realize the U.S. embodies the absolute perfection every other country should strive for? That he should remind them of it every chance he gets?

Right. We’ve got more white-collar crooks and gun-riddled corpses per square inch. Not to mention a healthcare system that costs billions more than theirs yet benefits millions of people fewer.

I see no down side to friendly relations with every country in North and South America — including Cuba, which has already annexed southern Florida — creating a cooperative powerhouse of shared interests. It could come in handy if Russia, China, or South Korea start lobbing missiles at us and we need backup.

Eight years of George Bush’s bravado left many fences to mend. That’s what Obama’s trying to do, one handshake at a time. He never said he’d take Bush’s place as the world’s schoolyard bully, so why expect it now? He’s smart enough to know there’s no “winning” any war against countries with an inexhaustible supply of ignorant fanatics willing to die for their cause.

Somebody has to say “Enough’s enough,” so why not us, the model of perfection? Let’s get back to leading by example.

Many conservatives claim to be Christian, yet clamor loudest for Obama to display more rudeness and hatred. Whatever happened to “turn the other cheek?” Where in the Bible does it say enemies must remain enemies forever?

Every time I see Obama shake hands with another leader, no matter who it is, I feel our chances of avoiding the next war just got a little better. Anybody who has a problem with that is just a fool.

    your totally right, the USA has many fences to mend, and it could benifit from a little turning of the cheek as well.. Not that Seal Team Snipers aren’t fun too!!!

    Bush burned a lot of bridges world wide, at least Obama is trying to normalize things in the world.

    The Neo Cons are just sucking buttermilk up their collective asses cause they got stomped in the election..

    Bob

    Bob, I saw some Republican senator on the news last night crying that Obama is trying to make Bush look bad every chance he gets. Like Bush didn’t do a crackerjob job of that with no help from anyone (except perhaps Cheney).

    Seems like only yesterday the same could be said about Republicans and Clinton, but Clinton was still in office, and all the stuff they were upset about had nothing to do with running the country.

    Their totally twisted thinking and selective amnesia never ceases to boggle my kitty mind.

    Ass sucking of buttermilk — is that a Canadian expresssion? It’s quite colorful, but why buttermilk?

    Yul, perhaps if Bo Obama is named Secretary of Animal Rights, you’ll get a call to go to DC as some kind of undersecretary. I know Fred is the elder statesman in your house, but he’s in his golden years and probably wants to spend more time studying the racing form.

  4. Bob says:

    actually its an American Expression.

    But we see more of you than you see of us

  5. catsworking says:

    Adele, you’re right. Fred is like our Ted Kennedy around here — but retired. He would turn down any position he may be offered in the Obama Administration.

    But I could see myself starring in a sequel to that great Jimmy Stewart flick, called Mr. Yul Goes to Washington,” only I’d wreak so much havoc with the stuffed shirts that the plot would be more like a Godzilla movie.

  6. catsworking says:

    Bob, perhaps that’s an expression in the Northwest? Down here in the South, people actually like and use buttermilk and I don’t think they’d want to waste any by sucking it up their ass.

    Interesting image, though.

  7. Bob says:

    Doing my best… Hey I love buttermilk .. in my pancakes.. Funny though never tried to eat them with my ass..

    But then again.. Not Republican

  8. Adele says:

    I’ve never heard the buttermilk expression in the Midwest, either, although I did have an Irish boyfriend, whose father was from the auld sod; whenever his father saw someone with a WC Fields type red nose, he’d say, in his adorable brogue, “Sure an’ he didn’t get a nose like that from drinkin’ buttermilk.” Buttermilk is great for baking, though –red velvet cake, scones and muffins.

  9. catsworking says:

    Bob, if you eat them with your ass, I think they’re called buncakes. And I hear maple syrup is really good for sealing cracks. 😉

  10. Bob says:

    You are thinking of the Maple Syrup “Charlie Manson” from the Quebec episode!!!!

    I am no where near that hairy.

    Yul , Adele, Bob et all…ABSOLUTELY CORRECT…crybaby racists cloaking themselves in Christianity. About the most unchristian bunch I can imagine….galling. They are corrupters of what America was meant to be!!

    I’ve never had buttermilk…nor has my ass.
