Anti-American Obama: "US Cannot Impose Its Values"
It’s Apology Week.
Dear Leader will travel to Egypt to give a speech to the Muslim World.
He will travel to Buchenwald concentration camp.
(Of course, Obama’s Great Uncle says, “He’s Using Buchenwald For Political Purposes”)
He will then travel to Dresden during D-Day ceremonies.
He started things off tonight.
Barack Obama said US cannot impose its values.
US President Barack Obama said Monday that the United States cannot impose its values on other countries, but argued that principles such as democracy and the rule of law were universal.
In an interview with the BBC ahead of a visit first to Saudi Arabia and Egypt and then Europe, Obama said the United States must lead by example — which firstly meant closing the Guantanamo Bay detention camp on Cuba.
“The danger I think is when the United States or any country thinks that we can simply impose these values on another country with a different history and a different culture,” the president told the broadcaster.
But he stressed: “Democracy, rule of law, freedom of speech, freedom of religion — those are not simply principles of the West to be hoisted on these countries, but rather what I believe to be universal principles that they can embrace and affirm as part of their national identity.”
Obama said he would be “encouraging” countries on his trip to promote these values, but added: “I think the thing that we can do most importantly is serve as a good role model.
“And that’s why closing Guantanamo, from my perspective, as difficult as it is, is important.
“Because part of what we want to affirm to the world is that these are values that are important even when it’s hard, even especially when it’s hard, and not just when it’s easy.”
Mitt Romney ripped Obama today for his disgusting “tour of apology.”
