From the Associated Press:
Laos — President Barack Obama says Americans can get “lazy” and insular, and he hopes his presidency has helped broaden their worldview. Speaking to a group of young leaders from across Southeast Asia, Obama says the U.S. “is and can be a great force for good in the world.” But because of its size, he says Americans “haven’t always had to know about other countries.” In the United States, Obama says, “sometimes you can feel lazy.” The president says he’s tried to change that by deepening connections with other parts of the world, particularly fast-growing Asia.
President Obama has really shown his true colors the last few months. Not that they were ever particularly hidden to anyone willing to look.
I mean, the guy golfs every weekend and takes a total of about five to six weeks off a year. And he’s calling Americans lazy?
And they accuse Trump of having poor reality testing.
Yesterday, Obama was supportive of 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick sitting out the National Anthem, saying, “He’s exercising his constitutional right to make a statement.”
Of course he’s exercising a Constitutional right. But you’re the president. You embody this nation, on paper, at least. You don’t say nice things about people who give the country the finger. Unless in some ways that’s how you also feel.
Remember this? Obama, though a “public servant” for years, had to be trained to put his hand over his heart during the playing of the anthem.
I think Obama has very conflicted views about this country. I know many of you think that’s putting it way too kindly.
What he really cares about is his radical agenda. Otherwise, you learn instinctively to put your hand over your heart during the anthem long before you start running for president. And you don’t condone those who fail to even stand and face the flag that hundreds of thousands of Americans have fallen for during wartime.
