Skip to comments.Obama Gets Humiliated in the Pacific
Posted on 12/05/2012 12:27:56 PM PST by Brown Deer
It is symptomatic of the national condition of the United States that the worst humiliation ever suffered by it as a nation, and by a US president personally, passed almost without comment last week. I refer to the November 20 announcement at a summit meeting in Phnom Penh that 15 Asian nations, comprising half the world's population, would form a Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership excluding the United States.
President Barack Obama attended the summit to sell a US-based Trans-Pacific Partnership excluding China. He didn't. The American led-partnership became a party to which no-one came.
Instead, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, plus China, India, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand, will form a club and leave out the United States. As 3 billion Asians become prosperous, interest fades in the prospective contribution of 300 million Americans - especially when those Americans decline to take risks on new technologies.

Obama fails again, how UNEXPECTED!
Heap the humiliation on, I don’t mind, I don’t consider him representative of the US regardless of his office.

Why would they want us?
We’re a nation of moochers with very little to offer them.
Years from now, people will look back at this time period and it will all seem so stark — so obvious. But, at least officially, we don’t see any of it. Everything is good. Economy going great. President very popular. Everything under control. Not a cloud in the sky, eh?
That's the headline I'd like to read!
Obama must be thrilled that he is burying us even faster than he could have dreamed!
Why shouldn't they? The US today has a toxic, obscene, sex obsessed culture. It has become an untrustworthy ally and an impotent foe. We borrow money we have no intention of ever paying off and we just elected baracka claus as our president.
I wouldn't invite America to join my club either.
***the worst humiliation ever suffered by it as a nation, and by a US president personally,***
Worse than when Clinton was offered McDonald burgers in Europe?
The world LOVES Obama, for what he represents: A USA put in its place in a new ordering of importance. This I base on my conversations with “folks” outside the US who LOVE Obama.
Indonesia hates Obama? Say it isn’t so.
For the first time I am ashamed to be an American. Greatest sense of foreboding.......
After the election I literally unbolted the brass flag bracket on my front porch. Don’t feel much like flying the colors right now.
Is calling these eight years the “New Dark
ROLL out the HA-HA gif
Hell, the bamaClaus sheeple would demand Moochelle be installed to finish the job.
