BARACK OBAMA - IT'S ALL ABOUT ME NO MATTER THE SUBJECT
So naturally with this years prize winner prevented from attending by his government, Obama released a statement concerning the absence of the recipient. The statement though was more about Obama that about Liu, it is as follow:
"One year ago, I was humbled to receive the Nobel Peace Prize -- an award that speaks to our highest aspirations, and that has been claimed by giants, ( except last years pee wee), of history and courageous advocates who have sacrificed for freedom and justice." So once again it is all about HIM but then he does actually admit somewhat begrudgingly that Liu is deserving:
"Mr. Liu Xiaobo is far more deserving of this award than I was." Of course Obama was completely UNDESERVING but still thinks he was. Then adding insult to arrogant injury Obama PRAISES the Chinese government that prevented Liu from attending AND in whose dissent of that government was the very REASON he was awarded the Peace Prize.
"We respect China's extraordinary accomplishment in lifting millions out of poverty, and believe that human rights include the dignity that comes with freedom from want." Obama must have realized that this government he just praised DID in fact arrest Liu and prevent him from attending and THAT his stand against the government Obama praises was why he received the Peace Prize, so he back tracks as he does so often with this:
"Mr. Liu reminds us that human dignity also depends upon the advance of democracy, open society, and the rule of law. The values he espouses are universal, his struggle is peaceful, and he should be released as soon as possible." Now after he has talked out of BOTH sides of his hypocritical mouth Obama ends his statement by falling back to his favorite subject, himself.
"I regret that Mr. Liu and his wife were denied the opportunity to attend the ceremony that Michelle and I attended last year."
If anyone ever doubted Obama's love affair with himself and his arrogance that everything is about him, this statement which should have been ONLY about Liu and a condemnation of the Chinese government proves not only Obama's complete arrogance but his lack of principles and willingness to appease any and all foreign governments regardless of their record or their dangers.
