Obama’s making us the World’s Laughinstock!

From President Obama’s recent speech in Cairo:

“Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance. We see it in the history of Andalusia and Cordoba during the Inquisition.”

During the Spanish Inquisition Cordoba and Andalusia were under Spanish Catholic rule! What on earth is this guy blabbing about??!!

Imagine Jon Stewart, Bill Maher, Olberman, etc. etc. etc. etc. if –say–Rush Limbaugh had uttered such a howler.

Not that any of the above “comedians” would have known any different….But one of their writers would have surely pounced on it.

  1. There you go with pesky facts again. Who cares? Not the “right” people, that’s for sure. They only care about what supports their position and agenda, no matter how distorted, skewed or even downright false. It’s perception that counts. Truth is for chumps.

  2. That was a strange thing for Obama to say, for sure, and it would be nice to know what the speech writer was thinking of and for the media to look into this.

    But to say it makes the US look like a laughingstock is ridiculous.

    Some of the facts in his speech might be off, but his speech was almost universally praised and is generating good will towards the U.S.

    At least the President didn’t present fake facts and use them as a justification for an ill-advised war. As some others have done.

  3. Come on Charles….stop this bullshit, please…

    You sound just like CNN, MSNBC and the rest of the MSM, praising this BS speech but when you analyze the substance of it you come to understand that is speech is a disgrace.

    And regardless of what you think, it does make the US look like a laughingstock around the world no matter how much the MSM tries to cover for it in front of the American people.

    You buy into this world goodwill towards the US bullshit line thinking that is going going to keep us safe from attack from our enemies, I got news for you,

    You’re living in a STUPID, FANTASY world.

    See if this goodwill is going to make North Korea or Iran stop it’s nuclear programs.

    This current President we have now is a disgrace.
    Every time he takes an international podium is to attack, denigrate his own country in front of the world and to make apologies for all the evil that he thinks the US has done around the world.

    And constantly he fails to acknowledge how much the USA has sacrificed for the rest of the world for the last century, give me a freaking break.

    How many Americans have made the ultimate sacrifice and how much American blood has been spilled so others are free around the world.

    How FREAKING evil is that?

    How many Muslims were saved in the former Yugoslav republics by the actions of our armed forces in the late nineties? How much aid America provided to the Muslim countries in Asia after that tsunami a few years back?

    Please give me a freaking brake.

    America does not have to make apologies to anyone around the globe, period. And any American President who does so simply displays his bullshit character.

    If our current President would not have the MSM totally in the tank for him he’ll be already toast by now. Unfortunately the MSM completely covers his ass on a daily basis and the people are falling for this act.

    This is just the same bullshit act Jimmy Carter played thirty years ago. On his watch America was the culprit for everything that went wrong around the world.

    Well, we know today the painful road that Jimmy Carter took America and several countries around the world (like Iran and Nicaragua) with that bullshit philosophy. I guess you have forgotten those days.

    And your comparison to President Bush is beginning to annoy as you fail to mention that President Bush fake facts were given to him by the intelligence services.

    And the ultimate truth (wether you like it or not) is that America liberated the Afghans from the cruel Taliban and the Iraqis from the cruel Saddam, period.

    How evil is that? Don’t give me this bullshit line of unjust Iraqi war as Saddam and his regime deserved what they got and today the people there are freer that they have been for the last 35 years.

    Like Mambi said to you on another post your arguments are so pathetic in essence that I don’t know where the line for you draws between being naive or being stupid.

  4. I’m certain Spaniards are laughing their heads off at Obama’s ignorance.

    For starters Córdoba is a city in Andalusia and also the capital of the province of Córdoba. So Obama was being redundant. Andalusia is divided into eight provinces: Huelva (1492), Seville (1248), Cádiz (1262), Córdoba (1236), Málaga (1487), Jaén (1246), Granada (1492) and Almería (1489). Re-conquest of Spain began around 718 and ended on January 1492.

    While many people associate the Inquisition with Spain and Portugal, it was actually instituted by Pope Innocent III (1198-1216) in Rome. A later pope, Pope Gregory IX established the Inquisition in 1233 to combat the heresy of the Abilgenses, a religious sect in France. By 1255, the Inquisition was in full gear throughout Central and Western Europe. This ecclesiastical tribunal did not start in Spain until 1481 after the re-conquest of Iberian Peninsula from the Moors (Muslims). The Inquisition, by the way, had jurisdiction only over baptized Christians.
    In 1502 the Spanish crown ordered all Muslims forcibly converted to Christianity, and in 1609 the last Moors still adhering to Islam were expelled from Spain.

    Obama and those writing his speeches are a bunch of ignorant asses.
