Between tapings and fundraisers on Tuesday, Big Guy found time to go to the UN to condemn THE MOVIE that he blamed for Ambassador Steven’s death before he voted against blaming it. Unclear what his current position is.
BO condemned THE MOVIE that wasn’t responsible for the embassy burning and murders by using his unique oratorical skill (i.e.,TOTUS) and employing one of his most affective stylistic flourishes: making it all about him:
“Like me, the majority of Americans are Christian, [ed., news to Madonna, who like many others believe him to be a “Black Muslim”] and yet we do not ban blasphemy against our most sacred beliefs," he said.
"As President of our country, and Commander-in-Chief of our military, I accept that people are going to call me awful things every day, and I will always defend their right to do so. Americans have fought and died around the globe to protect the right of all people to express their views--even views that we profoundly disagree with.
“But in 2012, at a time when anyone with a cell phone can spread offensive views around the world with the click of a button, the notion that we can control the flow of information is obsolete.”
Right: not enough to control content, now we have to control the polling too
Oh! And you’ll be pleased to know that since she was already in New York for other important matters, Lady M went to listen to BO’s big
Nearly everyone was impressed with Big Guy’s words to the delegation:
Following the UN
read speech, Big Guy again didn’t have time to meet with any of the world’s leaders as he had a prior commitment to appear at the Clinton Global Initiative to give another impassioned read speech. (Surely you didn’t think Big Dawg’s glowing nomination speech at the DNC came without strings? “Quid pro quo” is Bill’s middle name.)
The central theme of BO’s CGI
read speech revolved around the condemnation of human trafficking. What? Seriously? I’m not in favor of human trafficking or anything, butt seriously? This is the most critical topic in the world today? I guess I better start reading the New York Times more thoroughly, because I still thought it was Global Warming.
Meanwhile, back at the UN today, Ahmadinejad is expected to call for a New World Order. Guess he didn’t get the memo either. We’ve already got a New World Order, Mahmoud: get on board, bubbie.
With Big Bro and his empty chair looking at you, looking back at him looking at you – you can rest assured, “We are on correct path comrades” (h/t Veretino)
