America's Shame: Obama Calls U.S. "Arrogant" & "Dismissive" in Speech in France

The latest Mike's America video captures our shame...

Charles Krauthammer describes Europe's "leading role:"

Blame America First Alive and Well

Obama's criticism of his own country is nothing new for Democrats. The George Soros wing of the Democrat Party which is now in complete control at the White House has long held the view that whatever problems which exist between the U.S. and other nations we can find fault first in what America is doing. This mode of thinking goes hand in glove with the view First Embarrassment Michelle Obama expressed when she said she had never been proud of her country until her husband was nominated.

Twenty five years ago, the late Ambassador Jeanne Kirkpatrick summed up the Democrat attitude in a speech she delivered to the Republican National Convention in Dallas in 1984 which renominated President Reagan and put him on the path to a landslide win.

The words then are just as true today:

Blame America First
Excerpt from Address of Amb. Jeanne Kirkpatrick
Republican Convention, Dallas Texas, 1984

[Democrats] said that saving Grenada from terror and totalitarianism was the wrong thing to do - they didn't blame Cuba or the communists for threatening American students and murdering Grenadians - they blamed the United States instead.

But then, somehow, they always blame America first.

When our Marines, sent to Lebanon on a multinational peacekeeping mission with the consent of the United States Congress, were murdered in their sleep, the "blame America first crowd" didn't blame the terrorists who murdered the Marines, they blamed the United States.

But then, they always blame America first.

When the Soviet Union walked out of arms control negotiations, and refused even to discuss the issues, the San Francisco Democrats didn't blame Soviet intransigence. They blamed the United States.

But then, they always blame America first.

When Marxist dictators shoot their way to power in Central America, the San Francisco Democrats don't blame the guerrillas and their Soviet allies, they blame United States policies of 100 years ago.

But then, they always blame America first.
What a shame Democrats can't find more pride for the enormous accomplishments their countrymen have achieved through incredible sacrifice and effort. But then, to recognize those achievements they would have to admit that they fought most of them every step of the way!
