The Most Interesting Man in the World

15 posts in this topic

If he's not bowing down, he's getting big hugs from other world leaders. What more can you say, he's The Most Interesting Man in the World. And he drinks Dos Equis. Maybe Obama should run for Secretary General of the UN so he can be come "King of the World."

Yes, Obama actually said, “with increased power comes increased responsibility.”

Undoubtedly, something from Flash Gordon is next: "Flash, Flash, I love you, but we only have fourteen hours to save the Earth! " Another emergency bailout, no doubt.

The picture makes me want to puke.

How about a similar picture with Obama hugging Sarah Palin?

If he can bow to dictators, hug foreign leaders, I'm sure he could lay a good wet one on Sarah.

He's a typical radical Leftist. They are literally more hostile to American Republicans than Middle Eastern Dictators.

The Left was kissing up the the Soviets a long time ago. So that is nothing new.

Here's one I made before I ever heard of Obama. Looking at it today, I see a resemblance.

That being said, I think you are being unfair on Manmohan Singh. He is literally the first, ever, non-leftist Prime Minister that India has ever seen. He was elected with a clear mandate to restructure the country along free market lines and has performed well so far considering the enormous resistance he is facing from every layer of Indian society. I am impressed because he studied economics at Cambridge, and unlike Nehru, came out a firm proponent of American-style civilization.

I think this may have been lost on Obama. For him man in turban = immigrant = probably left wing = acceptable to be on film with.

Rtg24, I do not know enough about Manmohan Singh to condemn or praise him and that is why my comments were directed toward Obama. I do not like Obama, I dislike everything he stands for and I do not like what he is attempting to do. I also do not like that it seems he uses every little chance he can get to destroy what America stands for and grovels up to every other countries leaders. As you mention, it does not even seem like he knows Manmohan Singh, but here he is in this picture giving him a tight hug. When I was growing up, in America, men did not give other men hugs, especially if they did not know each other well, instead we shook hands.

Understood, and I agree with your sentiment towards Obama (which I can see are shared by other members).

I wonder whether Hillary Clinton would have been a worse president. I hold her to be a lot sharper, and more effective at civilization destruction.

As a continuation of the theme of this thread, what I find most amusing is that Obama is seeking the favours of those that might not entirely warm to him, such as Dr. Singh or the Chinese (who have, several times, accused him of being a socialist and a trade manipulator), whilst snubbing those that worship him. I found it extremely uncomfortable that all my French colleagues complained about the House being taken by the Republicans (an occasion to discover the expression "Tea Party fascist" which I found particularly amusing in its brash ignorance of the actual meaning of both expressions); I was personally quite disappointed that the Senate remained blue. Sarkozy & company know well that to be seen with Obama is an instant vote-getter in their respective countries.

As for the hugs, they are customary in Indian culture. When I was working there, however, it was acknowledged that I was not Indian, and out of courtesy, and because they knew I was not aware of their culture, the local men adopted the Western culture of shaking hands. I believe this has been the case in every country ever visited by dignitaries bare some desertic islands in the middle of Asia.

My social status - and therefore the formality of the occasions in which I met Indians, even in a business setting - being much less than that of POTUS, I find it quite distasteful for him to impose on Dr. Singh - who is well versed in Western culture - a parody of local body language.

There was a time when POTUS acted with the dignity that his position implied in the photos that were released to the world:

I also find it quite hypocritical (and very expected) that Obama should criticize India about not taking over Myanmar, whilst remaining quiet about Pakistan, where far worse human rights violations occur on a daily basis.

An Indian friend forwarded this after we discussed the visit:

For somebody prepared, he did hesitate a lot. I thought he was the master of speeches? We are far from Reagan's pro-Goldwater 1964 speech...

My friend tells me Indians keep asking themselves "how the hell could Americans be so stupid as to elect this man?" which I think tells you all you need to know about how the rest of the world (excluding the People's States of Europe) views the man. And so much for the Left's assertion that he is popular abroad.
