obummer, small letters & absolutely NO RESPECT INTENDED, is the biggest piece of shit on the North American continent today. He is definitely worthless in his current occupation and definitely, the USA, will be better off when he is gone, deceased, etc from his present position? It's not a job, for he does nothing for his salary and has his whole family living in our tenant farm, formerly known as the White House in Washington, DC. World leaders, I applaud your NOT SHAKING HIS HAND, I wouldn't either if I met him. SO VERY SORRY THAT WE DO NOT HAVE SOMEONE IN POSITION WHO HAS THE ABILITY TO BE IN COMMAND. WE'LL TRY HARDER IN 2016!

Instead, Obama makes detour to Saudi Arabia-

"Obama to shorten India trip to visit Saudi Arabia"

I think it is terrible that Putin was not invited...Russia lost 25 million people in that war and 25 million more starved to death because of the war...

I am curious as to why the President's detractors will often pair their articles with photos of him in what I guess they consider "threatening" garb or "scary" garb, LMAO! I love this picture of a young Barack before he was even Senator, I love the cultural diversity and clothes he is wearing. It could be just me but sweaters, blue jeans, flannel shirts and business suits do not make the wearer superior especially if it disguises a bigot in sheets clothing. I am also glad this article focuses on the "important" issue of the presidents supposed international responsibility as opposed to real important accomplishments, such as:

Obama’s success rate in winning congressional votes on issues was an unprecedented 96.7% for his first year in office. Though he is often cited as superior to Obama, President Lyndon Johnson’s success rate in 1965 was only 93%. http://n.pr/i3d7cY

There was so much more to the data base I was pulling this information from But let's judge him harshly for not joining other heads of state to attend the anniversary of the Auschwitz Liberation and wearing "funny" clothes! God bless America.

I think that it is obvious that the generations after the II world war do not know or know a bit but without knowing the principal causes of this war. I think that antisemitism is stronger than before. Articles in newspapers, conferences about History , religions and especially the reasons of anti Judaism - including this period - do not reflect the reality : hate, jealousy and other old principles against the History and the fidelity of the Jews in their belief

ApolloSpeaks

AS OBAMA INCHES CLOSER

to stopping the Holocaust deniers in Tehran from building the bomb why would he stupidly want to risk upsetting negotiations with a visit to Auschwitz?/sarc.

Click my name for the frighteningly ominous sentence in Obama's SOTU that everyone missed.

ApolloSpeaks

@Steve

FYI, when Obama signed ARRA into law the V-shaped recovery had already begun. According to BEA's 2008-09 GDP chart the turnaround began Dec. 2008 when contraction hit rock bottom. It was the beginning of the Bush recovery. ARRA is another failed Keyensian stimulus program following 20 years of Keynesian failure in Japan (in its 6th recession), multiple failures in Europe (Greece, Spain, Ireland, Portugal, etc) and the collapse of the New Deal in 1937. With an actual unemployment rate of 10% (discouraged workers included), an annual GDP of 2%, and an explosion in underemployment nad low wage jobs Obama's new New Deal is going the way of the old one.

Click my name and read my piece: Obama's Failed Stimulus & Bush's Underreported Recovery. It's counter-intuitive mind blowing.

peter jacob

It is a shame the adminisreation does not grasp the importance of Auschwitz where the systemmatic killing of innocent children was perfected.
Flash forward to today and witness the bestial preparation of innocent children to become suicide bombers and future terrorists without conscience.
Men and women of goodwill, wherever they are and whatever their religion or designs for power, must protect innocent children.
It is quite simply the future of our civilized world that is at stake.

David Clayton

He is just a joke, and a very bad one at that.
if you can remember a few years back he met with the Queen of England and did not bow, later in his tour he met the then king of Saudi Arabia and bowed so low he almost kissed his shoes, if that did not tell us which side of the fence he is on then nothing will.
He snubbed Paris, (other muslim leaders didn’t (but they came to honour the terrorists), he is not going to Auschwitz, and he will not meet with the Israeli PM when he visits the USA in March.
The really does get my goat is the way every leader in the west cow tow’s to this bloke, he is not thick as he has a degree, but as a leader of the USA a total waste of space, time and money, and a worst case would be that in a couple of years his wife could run for the office.
Dread to think what would happen if she got elected.

Al

Did Bush attend the 60th anniversary of Auschwitz liberation? Does anyone know, or care?

DIANE FLOCK

Americans must unite against Obama. the polls reflecting his popularity by Americans is false. We must stand together and reject his EX.ORDER that is bringing in 75,000 Syrian Muslims to the USA starting in 2015. Don't accept them in your city. Tell catholic charities to stop supporting immigration of Muslims. Demand your church, synagogue not support this immigration of the Muslims. WRITE YOU CONGRESSMAN AND SENATORS AND GOVERNORS VOICING YOUR OBJECTIONS. SUPPORT BOYCOTT HALAL MEAT, ACT FOR AMERICA AND PAMELA GELLER IN STOPPING THE ISLAMIZATION OF AMERICA.

This man would go and stand with Hitler, not the west.
