The Associated Press has for years been good for inventing the news out of its own vivid imagination. But now, not only is the AP inventing news it is inventing an entire national self-image, then batting it down all in an effort to prop up the feckless foreign policy of its messiah Barrack Obama. Obama’s “The U.S. Sucks” tour isn’t over yet and the AP is loving it.
Did you know that everyone in the U.S. has a “deeply held belief” that this country “does not make mistakes in dealings with either friends or foes”? Well, neither did anyone else, but the Associated Press sure does. And what’s more the AP is praising Obama for “goring the ox” of this obviously “deeply held belief” in which we stupid Americans are prone to believe.
The AP begins its assessment of this wondrous new era in American foreign policy by saying that, “President Barack Obama has gone abroad and gored an ox–the deeply held belief that the United States does not make mistakes in dealings with either friends or foes.” And it ends by dolefully saying, “being right is not always politically healthy.” Of course, by that ending the AP is saying that those eeevil Republicans are setting themselves up to put the kybosh on Obama’s promising “the U.S. sucks” brand of foreign policy.
