Obama: The Oslo Shuffle

In Disappearing Ink, Obamacare, The American Jihad, The Enemy Among Us, The Haters on 12/12/2009 at 23:21

Barack Hussein Obama finally found a king he didn’t need bow to this week in Oslo, and an audience he could offend with only collateral damage to his base on the Left. Casualties were minimal. After all, the President didn’t expect Norwegians to fall into lockstep and shout, “Seig Heil,” the way they did when Heinrich Himmler’s troops rolled into town.

In a speech that has the American media positively gushing and conservative pundits laying out kudos, Obama managed to have his cake and eat it too in Oslo. Which is something Norwegians know all about, Norway being the capstone of moral relativism our media so dearly loves. Hey, when snowballs are your idea of Weapons of Mass Destruction …

So what’s all the hubbub about?

Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton encapsulated Obama’s speech most succinctly as, “pedestrian, turgid, and uninspired.” In a speech loaded with self-importance and International leftist code, Obama managed to make an implacable argument for war while leaving the door open for negotiation with terrorists. You can work on that one; I missed the brilliance.

Charles Krauthammer in his own inimitable style allowed that the speech was Obama’s best on foreign soil. “It went against the grain of that audience of his, which was overdressed, over-titled, underemployed, one-world Scandinavian lefties.” Krauthammer later added that the last 2/3 of Obama’s speech was filled with “old stuff.”

In the first 1/3 of his acceptance speech for a prize that even had Juan Williams scratching his head, Obama did indeed sound, not only presidential, but darned near hawkish; the remainder of the presentation played like a Saturday Night Live skit.

“Where force is necessary, we have a moral and strategic interest in binding ourselves to certain rules of conduct,” the President said to his captive cast of glazed-over Euro-trash. But Obama garnered applause later, when he elaborated. “That is why I prohibited torture. That is why I ordered the prison at Guantanamo Bay closed. … I believe that we must develop alternatives to violence that are tough enough to change behavior – for if we want a lasting peace, then the words of the international community must mean something.”

Call Joan Baez, let’s hold a love-in, now that enhanced interrogation can only be used by our enemy. Better yet, Eric Holder can be the next Nobel laureate.

In summation, what did Barack give us in Oslo to make us believe his sincerity toward winning the war on terror? Well, as the SNL skit goes: “zilch … zero … nada … jack … squat,” absolutely nothing.

In another self-aggrandizing tribute to the wonderfulness of Barack Obama, the President gave us hope only to quickly snatch it back; he worked up backbone, and then let it slip like a male hustler in Times Square. Barack Obama managed to turn, what should have been personal embarrassment for accepting an award he does not deserve, into an embarrassment for America.
