UNITED NATIONS — President Barack Obama bluntly prodded world leaders Wednesday to join the U.S. in solving pressing global problems, challenging them to move beyond "an almost reflexive anti-Americanism which, too often, has served as an excuse for collective inaction."
Obama, making his inaugural address to the U.N. General Assembly , told fellow leaders in so many words that he has changed the tone and substance of U.S. security policies he inherited from President George W. Bush , and it is time for them to reciprocate.
"Make no mistake: This cannot be solely be America's endeavor. Those who used to chastise America for acting alone in the world cannot now stand by and wait for America to solve the world's problems alone," Obama said.
Where is the under the bus moments? Oh he was standing up for America

Did you catch wehn he said, "We cannot blame others, we must take responsibility for our own actions...blah blah blah?" Hope he remembers that line next time he's tempted to blame President Bush for his own mistakes! I doubt it.

But yet, he left rendition on the table... Ohh wait Bush inherited that from Clinton, and Obama made no mention of Clinton, so technically he was partially truthful. He is saying what he needs to say to make himself look good. Obama made a 100% political speech today. It was just another one of his political moments to appease his given 'target market'...

Right and no republican politican ever gives a "political" speech. Republicans are so trustworthy themselves, yea right. You want to go to the history books on that one and see how many LIES they have told? I am not saying democrates don't do the same thing but STOP acting like the republicans are so damn innocent.
Who are you blabbing to question mark? I guess not me.. I'm not a Republican. :o) Look at my post on Palin. I blame BOTH SIDES for the current state of our nation. These problems have been brewing much longer than 8 years. It just so happens (in case you are living under a rock... Which you are a cowardly anon~So it's quite possibly the case) that the CURRENT administration and the CURRENT Congressional ledership??? DEMOCRATIC. And this QUESTION was about Obama (also a Democrat). So, wake up and join the rest of the nation, in 2009!

I'm so sick of that bastard apologizing for us. He does NOT speak for me. I just want to smack the shit out of him when he blathers on like he did. God, I cannot wait until the next elections! We need to get rid of that idiot!
