"It's all our fault"

I am sick and tired of politicians going overseas and bashing the country that they supposedly represent. By some misguided advice, Obama feels that in emasculating the US in front of the world, they will like us more.

"On every stage, Obama draped Lady Liberty in sackcloth and ashes, drawing plentiful applause but no serious economic or security cooperation in return."

So, if there is to be no economic or security cooperation, but they like us, that's a good thing? I argue that if they like us we are doing something wrong because these countries that Obama is going to often share little in the way of common interest with us. Therefore, the more these countries like us, the less I secure I feel about this country. The right path is never the one of least resistance yet Obama seems to think so. He seems to think that if we just take the path that the world agrees with, we will be better off. No, we will not be better off, we will be like the rest of the world and not the beacon of freedom that we have become. The US is where it is now specifically because we blazed a new trail based on the powerful new ideas of freedom and individual liberty. You begin to travel down paths of other countries that do not share these values, you erode the very foundation on which this country was founded.

"He relied on advice from State Department appeasement artists who understand neither Turkey, Islam"

Why not rely on the advice of our constitution and our founding fathers? By admitting that we are always wrong, it tells the world that we no longer strongly believe in that which has made us strong. Mr. President, stop placing this country at the feet of socialist, tyrants, and murders. You are better than that. We are better than.
