As Barack Obama’s Europalooza 2009 World Tour rolls on, it’s becoming more and more obvious that the mainstream media is more concerned about the latest fashion trend being set by First Lady Jackie Kennedy Michelle Obama than paying attention to the fact that the Emperor himself is running out of clothing.
When he was a candidate, and looking for support from the American-Armenian community, it was candidate Obama who boldly described the deaths of 1.5 million Armenians at the hands of Turks in World War I as the “Armenian Genocide,” one that was “widely documented” and would be “commemorated” by an Obama administration.
Yesterday, while in Turkey meeting with Turkish President Abdullah Gul, Obama quickly showed not only his lack of experience as a political leader, but also proved himself to be a statesman who can not be trusted to stand by his words.
Acknowledging only that Turkey and Armenia are currently “involved in delicate negotiations,” Obama avoided all but a fleeting mention of the Armenian Holocaust, instead stating he does not want to impact the negotiations currently taking place between the two countries. In doing so, he trivialized a two-year campaign of mass starvation, physical and sexual abuse, and the eventual murder of 1.5 million Armenians, reducing it to being little more than just one part of a “whole host of issues.”
Obama also missed the chance to back up his words to the Armenian community he courted for support two years ago. In passing up that opportunity, Obama demonstrated the difference between a true statesman who looks out for the interestes of those he serves, and a mere politician who promotes only himself and his own interests.
- Imagine the United States not wishing to do it’s part regarding the liberation of Europe during the second World War? After all, wasn’t that just part of a whole host of issues being handled with Germany?
- Imagine President Ronald Reagan not having the guts to tell Russian President Mikhail Gorbachev to “Tear Down This Wall!”
Imagine such a wholesale lack of character and you have President Barack Hussein Obama. My guess is that the impression of Obama most European nations came away with after a litany of his oratory is that they now have a better understanding of the inspiration for America’s “Self-Serve Gas Pumps.”
UPDATE: Interestlingly enough, Gateway Pundit has a somewhat different take on the subject.

Shame on your (the U.S.) president , your country deserves to have a president who’ll call things with their real names, no matter is this good or bad for you or for a third party. You live in the country where the people is used as some cloth – washed and ironed when needed, and thrown to a garbage can, when not. Over 90 years have passed since the GENOCIDE in Armenia – because of this ex-president W.Wilson has worked out a plan of creating the Armenian State – the reason, because of which 1,5 millions of Armenians were killed in 1915 (the Allies (Brittish, French and Russian) Armies were successfully fighting the Germans and TURKS (also Allies, but from the other side)armies and deliberating all non- Turk territories, including the largest – Armenia and Greece, and Turks started the allArmenian massacres to prevent the creation of the new state (actually Armenia was not new but a very old one in the region. If you don’t believe to the historical facts, Mr. Obama, then try to believe to the U.S. President W.Wilson who was president in this period and the U.S. Ambassador to Turkey Henry Morgenthau. I ask you, the one who reads this message, to pass it to President Obama. It’s not too late to correct the mistake, the day of the Armenian Genocide is April 24. God preserve us from lies. Samvel Harutyunyan, Armenia (the one 11 time smaller of the original size).
