Sometimes it is so easy to find a topic…unlike most of the time. There I was, sipping coffee and thinking about Dave Ramsey’s comment earlier. He was discussing the Facebook IPO. As best as I remember he said…
“Using your Grandma’s money to buy an extremely risky tech stock in a highly hyped IPO is STUPID! What’s worse is blaming someone else when you lose your money because you were stupid is stupid!”
It was his opening topic. He was discussing the various complaints because the stock went from $38 to $29 in about a week. He said the demands for an investigation was trying to blaming someone else because you were stupid…like suing because hot coffee was…hot.
It’s obvious Dave is a conservative. Everything he preaches against is a common trait of democrats and liberals. You’re fun to listen to, Dave.
The next item is more serious. Much more serious. I supposed it could be filed under the topic, “How to lose friends and make enemies.” Obama just insulted 38 million Poles.
It’s not the first time he has insulted the Poles. A earlier incident occurred when he played golf instead of attending the funeral of Polish President Lech Kaczynski, the Polish First Lady, and 94 senior Polish officials who perished in the Smolensk air disaster. Eight months before that, Obama arbitrarily canceled the Euro missile shield site in Poland when he kowtowed to Vladimir Putin who insisted the deployment threatened Russia.
The current flap was caused when Obama described the WW2 death camps in Poland as, “Polish death camps,” instead of Nazi camps. What was worse was that he was reading off a teleprompter! Is the Obama White House so incompetent that NO ONE knew the difference nor of the impact such a statement would have!?
The Polish Foreign Minister immediately demanded an apology. That should not be difficult for Obama. He has had so much practice apologizing to our enemies—and our friends, due to other similar gaffs and insults. As expected, the White House tried to dance, unsuccessfully, around the incident.
National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said in a statement, “The President was referring to Nazi death camps operated in Poland. The President has demonstrated in word and deed his rock-solid commitment to our close alliance with Poland.” — ABC News.
In response, the Polish Foreign Minister called the incident an act of “ignorance and incompetence.”
You know, Obama opponents couldn’t make up stuff like this! Some folks in a forum tried to create a list but it keeps growing. Geez! What a boob!
