Obama sits through anti-American diatribe with a smile

President Obama endured a 50-minute diatribe from socialist Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega that lashed out at a century of what he called terroristic U.S. aggression in Central America and included a rambling denunciation of the U.S.-imposed isolation of Cuba’s Communist government.

Obama sat mostly unmoved during the speech but at times jotted notes. The speech was part of the opening ceremonies at the fifth Summit of the Americas here.

To say that Obama is different than Bush and many other leaders America had in the last 50 years would be an understatement. I cannot imagine Bush, Reagan, Nixon, Eisenhower, or even Clinton (Carter I can of course) imagine listening to an idiotic, hatefilled diatribe from a socialist like Ortega.

Some will undoubtedly say that Obama believes that kindness and humility will help America more than it hurts. Perhaps. Like the guys at Power Line, I am not so sure it will, however. Not at all, even.

Instead, I get the distinct impression that Latin American leaders believe they can slap Obama around. Whether that is true or not - I am betting it is not - is of little consequence with regards to the actions they will take believing they can get away with anything.

Obama is treating these people with too much respect and kindness. When Ortega railed against the U.S. for 50 minutes, Obama should have stood up and walked out.
