Nobody promotes freedom abroad like Obama! ‘Decide what works’ between communism, socialism or capitalism and go with it
**Written by Doug Powers
What U.S. president in history has done a better job of selling American ideals and the concept of freedom abroad than President Obama? None, if you don’t count all the others.
Here’s Obama speaking to a Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative audience in Argentina and selling them on a system of government called “Whatever-ism”:
“So often in the past there has been a division between left and right, between capitalists and communists or socialists, and especially in the Americas, that’s been a big debate,” Obama said during a visit to Argentina Thursday. “Oh, you know, you’re a capitalist Yankee dog, and oh, you know, you’re some crazy communist that’s going to take away everybody’s property.”
“Those are interesting intellectual arguments, but I think for your generation, you should be practical and just choose from what works. You don’t have to worry about whether it really fits into socialist theory or capitalist theory. You should just decide what works,” he added.
Now there’s a tango with delusion if I ever saw one.
Bonus: Obama also talked up Cuba:
“And I said this to President Castro in Cuba. I said, look, you’ve made great progress in educating young people. Every child in Cuba gets a basic education — that’s a huge improvement from where it was. Medical care — the life expectancy of Cubans is equivalent to the United States, despite it being a very poor country, because they have access to health care. That’s a huge achievement. They should be congratulated.”
Cuba should be congratulated?
The problem, President Obama, is that they had no say in what kind of government “works.” See where this is going?
New theory: The Obama administration didn’t send the Churchill bust packing in 2009 — it walked out on its own.
