Oh, the Obama administration and their bootlickers in the media are trying to paint a brave face on this, but the fact is that Obama lost – BIG – at the G-20. The won lost so badly that some of his former water carriers are turning on him and reporting this more or less straight. He got his butt kicked:
The G-20 summit concluded in Toronto late Sunday with signs of an economic policy rift between President Obama and other world leaders.
The debate played out against a backdrop of violent protests outside the summit that resulted in more than 500 arrests but no serious injuries.
The president came to Toronto hoping to convince his G-20 colleagues to put more emphasis on stimulus spending to keep the economic recovery alive, reports CBS News chief White House correspondent Chip Reid. For the most part he did not succeed.
The G-20 leaders have noted the inept response of the Obama White House to, well, everything and decided to buck Obama’s schemes on their economies. Countries like Brazil and Turkey already figured out that they could thumb their nose at Obama with impunity. The G-20 figured they could urinate on his shoes with no repercussions.
Understand this: Obama has, in his short tenure in the Oval Office, seriously damaged America’s standing in the world. No, he has not made us safer or stronger or better-loved. He has damaged us as a nation. We and our children will be paying for this nattering narcissist nothing of a president for a long, long time.
