Barack Hussein Obama and Indonesia: there's no place like home

[...] One of the reasons a lot of Americans find Obama oddly foreign is that he had an oddly foreign childhood: his formative years were spent in Indonesia. His half-sister, Maya Soetoro Ng, was born there. The rest of Obama's childhood was spent in Honolulu, a Pacific Ocean capital soaked in East Asian culture.

What's this got to do with Britain, or indeed with Europe? Plenty. Obama is the first US president who was raised without cultural or emotional or intellectual ties to either Britain or Europe. The British and the Europeans have been so enchanted with  'America's first black president' that they haven't been able to see what he really is: America's first Third World president.


What the Obama administration has near-wiped from the president's personal history is that his only childhood links with America were as a schoolboy in a fashionable private school in Asia-dominated Hawaii, where he was raised by his white, bank executive grandmother.

Chicago is not Obama's homeland. It never was his formative influence. The president's world view is more aligned with that of Indonesia.

You can be sure the gift Obama gives the President of Indonesia will be something more than the dvd box-set of old Hollywood movies he gave to Gordon Brown. The US president's manner on the trip to Indonesia will be more the manner he showed to the King of Saudi Arabia last year. The king received a deep bow, something never done by any US president before. Obama also kow-towed to the Emperor of Japan and to the Chinese premier.


The president actually feels that the US Constitution, which grew out of Magna Carta and the 1689 Bill of Rights, is 'inadequate.' Indeed, Obama has stated that, because the US Constitution guarantees only 'negative rights' -- that is, establishes what the US Government may not do to individuals or to the sovereign states -- instead of giving people guarantees of food, shelter education and health care and the rest, it is 'inadequate.'


Obama has made it clear he despises both the US Constitution and the British tradition from which it springs.

Obama is the best example of the gullibility, ignorance, and inability of too many U.S. citizens to logically examine a potential President. Nothing in his past, his experience, or his words indicated he was qualified for the position. In fact, using those as hiring requirements, he wasn't qualified to mop the floors in a porn shop.

"Mopping the floors in a porn shop" -- I'm trying to get that image out of my mind. But imagine seeing this on late night TV: "Hi, I'm Barack Obama, doing the only job I've ever really been qualified to do, to tell you about New super industrial strength Lysol!"
