    That was directed at Prince Barry in response to his Strasbourg speech, right?

    It all started with the Apology Tour.

    It was directed at you. You are taking some strange pleasure in Ecuador's actions when I would think most Americans would agree with the President and our Sec of State that Snowden should be returned to the US. Try being on the US side for a change.

    Ok, if this was his first year or 2 into his first term I would grant him that. But, it's nearly 6 years after that and he's still bashing Bush. No President in history has spent so much of his time bashing a previous President except for Obama. I guess the next President can bash Obama for 6 years without complaint from you liberals. I even went back to Reagan and he never bashed Carter outside of his inaugural speech and after his first year in office. George W Bush didn't even say a thing about Clinton even though he had lots to say.

    Sometimes, you just need to pick up that baton and run with it instead of standing there and blaming the handoff on the other guy.

    Snowden should be returned?! For what? Finally releasing facts on government corruption? It is about damn time somebody in this administration grew a pair and spoke the truth.

    Because Prince Barry and his minstrels screwed up and got caught Snowden is the bad guy? You liberals just keep getting weirder and weirder.

    Our own president talking of American arrogance and lack of respect is pretty damaging. I guess when you are drinking the kook aid it doesn't.

    We ought to come out with "Too Hot" knee pads and send a set to our resident Obama apologists Row, River, Fred and 108. I swear Obama could shoot his wife and they would claim Bush did it.

    Prince Barry kicked things off with the Apology Tour. If the POTUS is embarrassed by the U.S., he signals to the rest of the world that there's something wrong with our country -- this must be something Barry didn't learn in community organizer school.

    I care about the U.S. I'm beyond sad at the depth to which the United States' reputation in the world community has fallen. My greatest hope is that this incompetent boob of an apologizer has done all the damage to our reputation he can do. 34 years ago when Carter was POTUS, Iran refused to return 52 Americans. With Prince Barry it's only 1 American that 3 foreign governments are refusing to return. You do the math -- which is more of an embarrassment, Carter or Barry?

    It started with the Apology Tour.

    Hard to carry on a conversation with one who has no objective standards for his deeply held beliefs - whether it be the full context of statements, comparisons with what other presidents of the same era have said, or most importantly the results of foreign policy choices - but also with one who implies that a willingness to invade Russia, China, or Ecuador may have turned the tables on Putin and others in the latest skirmish. Your hoped for humiliation of the president on an issue which most Americans should and do support the president on and for which you have offered no alternative action he could take says it all.

    :laugh::laugh::laugh:

    Okay, let's start with this . . . . um . . . . statement. If you're asking what he could have done differently, he could have refrained from his Apology Tour. When he first entered office, he couldn't wait to run around the world to exclaim with exhuberence all the embarrassment and shame he and Princess Michelle felt for the United States. Well, in the words of his moral and spritual adviser, the racist Jeremiah Wright, "the chickens have come home to roost."

    And if you do look at the speeches you'll see that you correctly quoted one paragraph:
    But of course you left off the one that followed:
    and then this:
    In other words: "We've been too dismissive of you and you've been too critical of us. We both need to appreciate each other more."
    What part do you actually disagree with?

    I disagree with Prince Barry making speeches on foreign soil explicitly giving laundry lists of just how bad America has been. Why do I disagree? Because then other world leaders view that as weakness and unwillingness to lead the U.S.

    What part of that do you disagree with? That it started with the Apology Tour?
