    Barack Obama's New World Order
    Time.com

    By MICHAEL SCHERER / STRASBOURG Michael Scherer / Strasbourg – Fri Apr 3, 7:55 pm ET

    The United States is still the same country it was a year ago, give or take about 6 million jobs. But its international branding campaign, as led by the new President, Barack Obama, is so different that the rest of the world might be forgiven if it has to do a double take.

    Most of the hallmarks of the foreign policy of George W. Bush are gone. The old conservative idea of "American exceptionalism," which placed the U.S. on a plane above the rest of the world as a unique beacon of democracy and financial might, has been rejected. At almost every stop, Obama has made clear that the U.S. is but one actor in a global community. Talk of American economic supremacy has been replaced by a call from Obama for more growth in developing countries. Claims of American military supremacy have been replaced with heavy emphasis on cooperation and diplomatic hard labor. (Read "Obama in Europe: Facing Four Big Challenges.")

    The tone was set from Obama's first public remarks in London on Wednesday, at a press conference with Prime Minister Gordon Brown, where the American President said he had come "to listen, not to lecture." At a joint appearance with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Baden-Baden on Friday, a German reporter asked Obama about his "grand designs" for NATO. "I don't come bearing grand designs," Obama said, scrapping the leadership role the U.S. maintained through the Cold War. "I'm here to listen, to share ideas and to jointly, as one of many NATO allies, help shape our vision for the future."

    On Thursday night, after the G-20 summit ended, Obama took so many questions from the foreign press, including British, Indian and Chinese reporters, that a group of them applauded when he left the stage. Two American reporters asked Obama for his response to the claim by Brown that the "Washington consensus is over." Obama all but agreed with Brown, noting that the phrase had its roots in a significant set of economic policies that had shown itself to be imperfect. He went on to talk about the benefits of increasing economic competition with the U.S. "That's not a loss for America," he said of the economic rise of other powers. "It's an appreciation that Europe is now rebuilt and a powerhouse. Japan is rebuilt, is a powerhouse. China, India - these are all countries on the move. And that's good."

    At a town hall in Strasbourg, France, Obama stood before an audience of mostly French and German youth and admitted that the U.S. should have a greater respect for Europe. "In America, there's a failure to appreciate Europe's leading role in the world," he said before offering other European critical views of his country. "There have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive."

    The contrast is striking. Only four years ago, George W. Bush, in his second Inaugural Address, described what he called America's "considerable" influence, saying, "We will use it confidently in freedom's cause." Bush's vision of American power was combative and aggressive. He said the U.S. would "seek and support the growth of democratic movements and institutions in every nation and culture." He continued, "We go forward with complete confidence in the eventual triumph of freedom."

    Obama, by contrast, is looking for collaboration. He is looking to build a collective vision, not to impose an American one. And the response has been notable, from the endless flashbulbs that fired off at his town hall to the cheers of spectators who lined his motorcade routes and gathered outside his events in London. At the end of Obama's Friday press conference, French President Nicolas Sarkozy addressed the issue directly, speaking through an interpreter. "It feels really good to be able to work with a U.S. President who wants to change the world and who understands that the world does not boil down to simply American frontiers and borders," he said. "And that is a hell of a good piece of news for 2009."

    The move toward a "global" government is well under way and now they are grooming the public to accept that.

    China is making noises about a "global" monetary system and there is little in the way of opposition from any of the world leaders.

    The deal is almost done folks. I am not at all sure this movement can be stopped.

    We will bleed profusely to give the rest of the world a transfusion. Their socialist ways will be rewarded by our downfall even though socialism is what brought them to their knees. We too will fail as they did but it will be a much harder and quicker fall.

    Obama isn't for the people of this nation. I believe it may take 4 years for even the most dense of the brainless amoeba-like subhuman liberal trash to realize this but soon, we will all wake up. Job by job, people are realizing how badly they screwed up. Even the strong labor union support may dwindle from Obama as car factories are shut down by being required to supply products that no American wants. :rolleyes:

    We've seen the beginning of the end unless we stand up and protest this gross TREASON that is at full steam in DC. :mad:

    BINGO! I think Obama should be charged with treason. I'm starting to think that those who voted for him should also be charged with treason:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

    Just for the sake of argument here (and I'll preface this by saying this isn't necessarily my own personal view, but I do feel a proper discussion should include both sides of an issue) how can you guys scrutinize every single thing Obama does and call it "treason" or label him a socialist at every opportunity? Was the previous administration any less guilty of crimes against it's people or the people of the world? Lest we forget the unprovoked invasion of a sovereign nation with the intent of overthrowing their government and installing our own? That's the very reason the US has interveded in so many global conflicts in the past was to prevent other nations from doing exactly that. Or how about the passing of a set of laws who's very nature is to rob the American public some of their most basic freedoms and liberties, then have the audacity to name it "The Patriot Act" so any dissenters can automatically be labeled "unpatriotic?"

    I heard a conservative talkshow the other day compare Obama to Hitler in the way he's attempting to rally the poor and middle class behind him in an effort to push through an agenda that in better times would be extremely unpopular. OK, I can get on board with that to a certain extent, even if it is a little bit of a stretch. But could we also draw that same comparison of Bush's invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan to Hitler's invasion of France and Poland? Granted, the motivation behind the two events is different, but if we're going to stretch thin enough to see Hitler in Obama then we can do the same for Bush.

    Look, I'm not saying that I agree with Obama and I'm not saying I agree or disagree with anything anybody's said on this forum, but I have a hard time when I hear people ripping Obama to shreds every time he sneezes but ignoring the misdeeds of all previous administrations. As a gun owner I very much fear this administration's anti-gun stance, and I also fear playing too nicey-nicey with foreign governments who devote 99.9% of their time and effort to hating America, but I also don't think Obama's presidency single-handedly signals the end of democracy in America.

    Obama is being labeled as a socialist because of his policies. Just look at what he's been trying to do with his economic "policies." And all one had to do was listen to his speeches during the campaign to know that he wants to out a solcialistic system in place. Obama is also things that are blatently unconstitutional.
    As for Bush, I was not a fan of Bush. He did a LOT of things that I do not agree with. I also disagreed with the Patriot Act. It could be useful in certain circumstances, but the way it was written it gives WAY too much power to the federal gov't.
    All policticians are self-serving scumbags and they all need to be run out of town on a rail.

    It has been a very very long time since any president had the freedom, liberty, and security of the people of this nation as a main priority.

    Obama and company want to configure the federal government to have massive control over your everyday activities and ensure that most of the population is highly dependent on the federal government just to get by.

    Bush and company wanted to install almost dictatorial power on the office of the president...read the USA Patriot Act. In addition, the same administration managed to convince an entire nation that Iraq was poised to launch WMD's all over the friggin world to justify a war.

    Obama has not yet done anything at all to reduce the massive and invasive power that Bush and company heaped upon the office of the president. Instead, he seems to be going even further with the various bailouts and the control of major corporations.

    What does all that add up to? Easily it means that the politicians so many people placed their trust in are consolidating power and betraying the trust of the people.

    Are you not yet ready to inform those around you? Are you not yet ready to go to your local news stations and news papers and let others know the truth? Or is it that you are happy enough to allow things to get to a crisis point that leads to major violence?
