Uh Ho: Obama Says Vietnamese Dictator Inspired by Founding Fathers
Fox News ^ | July 26, 2013 | Chris Stirewalt

Posted on 07/26/2013 10:14:47 AM PDT by magellan

" ... we discussed the fact that Ho Chi Minh was actually inspired by the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and the words of Thomas Jefferson."

President Obama talking to reporters alongside Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang.

It may come as some unwelcome news to the families of the nearly 60,000 Americans who died in the Vietnam War that the whole thing was just a misunderstanding.

That was the impression President Obama gave on Thursday when he spoke to the press after his meeting with Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang. Sang brought Obama a copy of a letter sent to President Harry Truman from Ho Chi Minh in which the communist dictator spoke hopefully of cooperation with the United States.

Interesting that Communist Vietnam wanted their own “colonies” in Indochina, remember they invaded Cambodia in 1979.

Fidel Castro loved to read Abraham Lincoln.

But, it doesn't mean much if they don't emulate good men.

All Obama is trying to do is glom on to somebody else's positive character traits because he has none of his own.

Classic psychopathic trait.

So what he is saying, is that the North Vietnamese thought more of our Founders and Founding Documents, than he does.  I can believe that.

He's sorta, kinda, partly right. It's true that Ho Chi Minh, while living in France under the name Nguyễn Ái Quốc, was part of a group Vietnamese nationalists that petitioned the Great Powers meeting in Versailles for more rights for the Indochinese people, and that they quoted the Declaration of Independence while doing so. But within a year or two Ho had beat feet for Communist Russia and never looked back. So any influence our Founding Fathers had on him was fleeting at best, and soon replaced by the influence of the Soviet Union founding fathers.

Even those who wallow in foolishness are embarrassed by this man.

Keeping in mind that liberals are far beyond foolishness, in a realm that defies definition, a common fool being in a superior state of mind.

He knows he can’t list his parents’ (and his own) heroes Stalin, Castro and Mao, but Ho is still safe, his crimes are not as well known.

Oh.... My..... God.....

Just when you think this little bitch cant get any lower, he just lets something like this fly or puts forth some unpatriotic gesture and easily lowers himself even more.

I’ll tell ya, if our country has ever had any enemies, he at the very least seems like he has a sympathetic ear for them....

My father, having fought those wicked little bastards will just LOVE reading about THIS one!

Obama's thinking apparently never progressed past his freshmen year US history class.

Thats when they spew this crap into kids' brains. Without providing context or anything else that might help the students properly process the info, of course.

If I remember correctly, he went over to Russia after we rejected his request for assistance.

Obama is a POS communist dictator wannabe, and he’s envious of the vietnmanese communists. No wonder why hanoi jane and juan mc cain are so in love with him.

I take it that he was inspired. People can be inspired to do the opposite of someone else. NObama was inspired to destroy this country by being the polar opposite of our FF. That is exactly what he meant.

President BARACK OBAMA was invited to address a major gathering of the American Indian Nation in upstate New York.

He spoke for almost an hour about his plans for increasing every Native American’s present standard of living. He referred to his time as a U.S. Senator and how he had voted for every Native American issue that came to the floor of the Senate.

Although President Obama was vague about the details of his plans, he seemed most enthusiastic and spoke eloquently about his ideas for helping his “red sisters and brothers.”

At the conclusion of his speech, the Tribes presented Obama with a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name, “Walking Eagle.” The proud President then departed in his motorcade to a fundraiser, waving to the crowds.

A news reporter later asked the group of chiefs how they came to select the new name they had given to the President.

They explained that “Walking Eagle” is the name given to a bird so full of crap it can no longer fly.

I’ve posted this before, but this seems like an appropriate time for a repost.

Karma

Barack Hussein Obama, a man with no record of personal accomplishment, no leadership experience, and a man with strong connections to terrorists, criminals, racists, and anti-American Communists pulled it off and was re- elected President of these United States. What does this re-election mean and what does it say about the American people? Could it be that karma will finally bestow the consequences of dishonorable behavior on the American people?

Why do I say this? In answer to my question, let me remind you of this statement and where these words took the American people:

“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”

John Fitzgerald Kennedy Inaugural address, Friday, January 20, 1961

With these words ringing in our ears, my generation went to Vietnam and promised the Vietnamese people we would stand shoulder to shoulder with them until their freedom was secure and the enemies of liberty were defeated. But, it is to America’s eternal shame and disgrace that the American people soon grew tired of this noble undertaking and betrayed the very people who had believed and trusted us.

The American people elected Democrats to our Congress who had rather see American soldiers killed and our country defeated than allow a Republican president to receive credit for defeating our enemies. This Democrat led Congress (the infamous 93rd) cut off funding for the Vietnam War and forced the withdrawal of American combat troops in 1973, but we departed with the hollow promise that we would return if the Republic of South Vietnam was invaded by communist North Vietnam. As everyone must remember, this, again, was a lie.

The tactic we had taught the South Vietnamese was to, when invaded by the North, fall back to a defendable position, stall the communist advance, force the communists to mass their forces before South Vietnam’s defenses, and this would allow time for American forces and air power to return to assist them as we had promised. South Vietnam did just that; for twelve days, outnumbered ten to one, the Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) held and stalled the communist’s advance outside Saigon near a little town called Xuan Loc.

Outside Xuan Loc during April 1975, in an effort as gallant as that of the Spartans at Thermopylae, the ARVN 18th Infantry Division held two North Vietnamese Army Corps at bay for twelve days. Every infantryman in the ARVN 18th Infantry Division died in that stand. None ran away and none survived. They died to a man fighting overwhelming odds and believing to the end we Americans would return as promised.

Just before the last ARVN soldier of the 18th Infantry Division died, he might have rolled over on his back and looked to the sky hoping to see the contrails of American B-52 bombers and he saw nothing. This last ARVN soldier then knew that he, along with all the Vietnamese people, had been betrayed. With his dying breath, this soldier must have then turned his gaze heavenly and beseeched God to Damn America.

Yes, there is such a thing as karma where dreadful consequences are meted out in recompense for dishonorable behavior. The American people’s just rewards for abandoning a valiant ally during their time of need could have been that the chickens came home to roost on the American people with an Obama Presidency, a Nancy Pelosi Congress, a Harry Reid Senate, a John Roberts Supreme Court, and it couldn’t have happened to a more deserving people.

The election of 2008 and re-election of 2012 was about more than just Obama, his arrogance, his empty resume, and his traitorous comrades. Just as karma provides consequences for dishonorable behavior, there are also adverse consequences for irresponsible behavior. As a people deserve the government they vote into office, they also deserve the consequences resulting from that government’s actions or inaction. The consequences of a government not securing a country’s borders is that a people will lose their country as we are now losing ours to an invasion of illegal immigrants. The consequences of not securing a country’s electoral processes to prevent voter fraud is the country will lose its Democracy to a Thugocracy as we have lost ours to a Chicago-mob run Coup d’état.

But the final insult to our Democracy is with the election of Barack Hussein Obama, an avowed Marxist Communist, a significant chapter in American History finally closed. Our sixty-odd year long Cold War with Communism is over and the Communists won the war.

These words precede those of President Kennedy, so no one can say we didn’t see this coming:

“We cannot expect the Americans to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of Socialism until they suddenly awake to find they have Communism.”

Nikita Khrushchev, 1959

As we Americans continue to live out the old Chinese curse, “May you live in interesting times.”

Ho was a great politician and well knew how to tell people things they wanted to hear.
The only remarkable thing is that several Americans took what he said literally and apparently still do. I suspect its because it is conveneient to their politics.

Inspired by Stalin and Mao as he murdered more than 1 million of his Vietnamese countrymen after we left. John Kerry and his hippie brethren allowed this to happen.

“Interesting that Communist Vietnam wanted their own “colonies” in Indochina, remember they invaded Cambodia in 1979.”

Not to blow kisses to the North Vietnamese, but they didn't invade Democratic Kampuchea (Cambodia) for “colonies”, they invaded because the Khmer Rouge were murdering Vietnamese civilians in Vietnamese territory.
