Imagine Obama Pouring out These Words in China and India

Filed under: Presidents — admin @ 12:32 am

“Perhaps, the argument goes, these nations (China and India) represent the future, and the time for our leadership has passed. That argument is wrong. The time for our leadership is now. …. It was the United States, the United Kingdom, and our democratic allies that shaped a world in which new nations could emerge and individuals could thrive.”

What would folks in China and India say to Obama? Obama, do you mean the U.S leads the world in its education, in productivity, in its students ranking highest in shanghai, or yes, in your ability to raise debt ceiling and borrow as heavily as Pacific ocean, in having the largest illegal immigrants working while millions of Americans receiving government paychecks? Obama, why did you go to India and China to seek medicine for your country’s illness? Haha! I got ya man.

The words that came up in my mind and that are better associated with Obama’s words are hegemony, double-face, shame, self-deceiving, and of course, the book Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance… dream on happily ever after…
