Yesterday the President of the United States appeared in front of an aggregation of thieves, brigands, terror-appeasers,and dictators to give a speech. No, not the SEIU, MoveOn, Code Pink, and ACORN, this was the ultimate corrupt institution in the world, the United Nations.
He was treated as the matinee performer-- an opening act for the far grander speeches from Gaddafi and Ahmadinejad. But as loopy as the Libyan and the Iranian were they couldn't compete with the self-aggrandizement of Lord Obama. To wit:
"For those who question the character and cause of my nation, I ask you to look at the concrete actions we have taken in just nine months."
He was just getting warmed up.
As for Gaddafi, he said something in his hour and a half ramble that made me stand up and cheer:
"The UN should be moved to somewhere more comfortable (Libya for example) . . . All of you are tired, having jet lag . . . All of you are asleep.”
We heartily endorse the notion that the UN should be moved to Africa, or anywhere outside the United States. And with that move the US should no longer pay roughly a quarter of the UN's expenses but something more closely aligned with, say, ZERO.
