Ed Morrissey at Hot Air has been tracking President Obama’s grovel tour and pitches a perfect idea for a T-shirt design contest after watching him bow and scrape to the dictators in Latin America:
Once again, we have the new President embarking on the “We Suck ‘09″ tour, kicked off in Europe, where he felt the need to apologize for the last administration’s efforts to defend America’s interests on the international stage. Obama likes to call this “smart power” and tells us we’ll get more by appearing humble than by pursuing our interests in the normal fashion. So far, the rest of the world has applauded Obama’s performance — and gone on to reject our requests for economic cooperation, combat troops for Afghanistan, partnership with Russia against Iran, and North Korean continuation of the six-party nuclear disarmament talks without launching long-range missiles over Japan.
Buy the T-shirt for the tour, folks, but don’t be too unhappy if they run out. It looks like we’ll have a “We Suck” tour in 2010, 2011, and 2012, too.
We’re thinking a cartoon of Obama bowing to King Abdullah on the front, and a list of cities in Europe and Latin America Obama has visited on the back. Send your ideas/graphics to firstname.lastname@example.org!blog comments powered by Disqus
