British Ambassador on Obama
I like this part:
15. Obama has several overarching international themes:
- the need to restore US leadership This gets a strong response from campaign audiences. He stresses his multilateralist credentials, his commitment to Nato and transatlantic partnership, and his support for strong international institutions (the campaign are sympathetic to the Prime Minister’s institutional reform ideas, but have focused little on them so far). Obama has said that he admires Bush Senior, JFK and even Reagan – this is no doubt meant to show a sort of “bipartisan realism”;
Of course, what Obama has in mind is followership, not leadership. We become more like Europe and follow the dictates of the United Nations. And this notion that Obama admires Reagan is just more lies from the Lightbringer. Here's what he had to say about Reagan in Dreams from My Father
IN 1983, I DECIDED to become a community organizer.
There wasn't much detail to the idea; I didn't know anyone making a living that way. When classmates in college asked me just what it was that a community organizer did, I couldn't answer them directly. Instead, I'd pronounce on the need for change. Change in the White House, where Reagan and his minions were carrying on their dirty deeds.
