What’s Wrong With America? President Obama Counts the Ways

During his speech to the United Nations, President Obama brought up the race controversy in Ferguson, Missouri. It is a town which has had the fires of racism stoked by Obama’s own Justice Department, as well as liberal news entities such as Al Sharpton and his cohorts at MSNBC.

The President used the Ferguson story to criticize the nation he leads, and people have been understandably upset.

But just how many times does Obama manage to actually rip America in a 60-second time-frame during the speech?

The video clip can be seen below …

1)  “We too have failed to live up to our ideals.”

2)  “America has plenty of problems within our own borders.”

3)  Obama says of both 1 and 2, “This is true.”

4)  The world “took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri – where a young man was killed, and a community was divided.”

5)  “We have our own racial and ethnic tensions.”

6)  He surmises that America struggles with “changes wrought by globalization and greater diversity.”

Not bad, that is roughly one criticism of America every 10 seconds.

If that’s not enough however, First Lady Michelle Obama also chimed in with her own critique of America. At a U.N. education event, she said women in America still suffer under “harmful cultural norms.” (H/T: Breitbart)

Their are cultural issues of race and gender that can be discussed in a rational way – but they shouldn’t be used to bash America in front of the U.N., nor are they the “norm” in our country.

    *to loan hundreds of billions to solar firms going bankrupt,

    Lets see what is wrong with AMERICA. (1) We have a racist AFRICAN that starts all the trouble he can. (2) he sends RACIST A–H—-to Detroit to get the people all rield up. We didn’t have trouble with Racist untill he gun hoad it. (3) The Black people put him in office so they reap what the sew. (4) We have BORDER trouble because that disgusting peace of #### won’t do any thing to stop it.(5) MADAM mooSH### has no authority to disguss America she has no autheroty in any of AMERICA. and the Women have good jobs, we are not back in the cowboy erea.ALL THE TROUBLE WE ARE HAVEING IS BECAUSE OBAMA AND HIS LONG LIST OF TRAITORS, AND RACCIST PEOPLE THAT HE HAS IN OFFICE. Now we have to be nice to the GAYS, Lesbions, Heathins, and murders meaning OBAMA and Madam Hillary and her loveing husband, who likes to be loved but not by his wife.His daughter says he is her roll model, poor stupid chiled. I delet a lot of these Obama and Clinton CRAP because it drives me crazy. I will say one thing more: If the Black people put Hillary in office they better remember, their welfare will be cut down so we can take care of the Mexicons. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.If she gets in more of our SERVICE PEOPLE will be left to fend for themselves. May GOD help them. The women is no good and dishonest.

    Didn’t vote for him because the democratic platform isn’t one I can get behind. Was hoping he’d change my opionion about democrats a bit. That didn’t happen. If he represents the democratic mindset, our country is in grave danger of loosing itself. He’s blantantly racist, corrupted with power, and hates women (he’s often caught admiring them like they are objects). I suspect his degrees weren’t as much earned as given as gifts by those who are mindless caterers to cries of little children, much like he is.

  10. Kathy says:

    All these criticisms of our president fail to notice that Obama’s first words in this speech were: “America’s CRITICS would be quick to point out…” NOT: “I think…”
    They are just statements of fact. Why does everyone here ignore reality?
    These are all things that exist in this country & he is right that they need to be reconciled in keeping “with the traditions we hold dear.”
    It’s funny to me how some people are selective listeners & can twist an entire conversation around to support their negative views. He is saying that we are not perfect & that we too face challenges just like other countries do.
    No arrogance, no lies here. Just a simple, honest statement of fact.

    1. Jeff says:

      So, taking what you said further, you are one of those critics (you said it yourself, these ‘problems’ exist). And since you are apparently an Obama supporter, it’s only right that we, on the right, assume democrats view our country the way the President indicated. Hence, you and he are critics of America. Your argument helped prove the concensous of those who didn’t think what he said was appropriate for the POTUS.

    2. Victoria says:

      First I want to let you know he is not our President. He might be yours but not mine. You don’t mind speaking out for the poor thing but I truly can’t stand him. He has caused nothing but problems with his RACIST self. You also don’t mind hearing that every thing is Bushes fault. How can that be Bush didn’t let all the Mexicons cross the border and get one of our men killed by those wiled drug smuglers.Bush did not allow Aribis to work in our White House that they are welcome in but not the people that pay for it Bush did not fire our troops and replace them with Mexicons, Please know all the facts befor you defend that pice of ####.

  11. Pam says:

    And WHY is he still in office??

  12. Paula says:

    oh for crying out loud i just want to pull my hair out when i hear him…,he sure hasn’t helped this country one bit and now he criticizes our country to the UN..he is a poor excuse for a president…

  13. Richard says:

    He should of told them that this was the greatest country in the world,the most tolerant country in the world,and the proudest too,well,that was until I took office and started this once great nation into a downward spiral !!! I’m a sorry excuse for an American !!! That’s what he should’ve said !!!

  14. Travis says:

    We wouldn’t have racial division if you weren’t in office. Plus you need to be arrested and put on trial from treason.

    1. Bj says:

      Yup you are right on.
