Just how lame and just how small of a person is ‘Barack Obama?’


Candy Crowley, special correspondent for

The Fine Report:


“He’s as lame and as small as I am fat. But you’ll never hear it from me, except in my work for The Fine Report. (I need the money — staying this fat is expensive.) Read the rest of this story and eat see for yourself — but whatever you do, don’t say you heard it from me.”


Obama’s Southeast Asia Trip: in over his head — again; and a startling admission of his desire to be a dictator:


– Obama repeatedly referred to the country’s Nobel Peace Prize-winning leader Aung San Suu Kyi as Aung Yan Suu Kyi, an astonishing error given her global fame.
-He also bungled the norms of Burmese polite address, calling Thein Sein, the nation’s leader “President Sein,” an error comparable to addressing Cambodia’s Pol Pot as Mr. Pot.


-But he also undermined his supposed democracy mission, first by telling the Burmese leaders that he too wished he could govern without opposition, calling into question whether he himself believed in the representative government he was advocating. (!)

-He ignored the real heroes who helped push Burma toward a more open system — President and Mrs. Bush, as well as Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, Sens. John McCain and Mitch McConnell, seeming to take credit for it himself.
-Neither trade nor military matters were addressed substantively. Obama’s lecture to Thailand about its democracy needing “improvement” was a fairly strong signal that he had no intention of restoring free-trade talks with the Thais, who lost their access to that a few years ago after a military coup that has since restored democracy.
-The other cornerstone of the U.S.-Thai relationship — the military — wasn’t advanced either, given Obama’s efforts to cut the U.S. Navy to 1918 levels even as he talks of a “strategic pivot” to Asia.
-He could not draw so much as an Occupy-sized crowd. Nor did he draw respect.
-On his trip to Cambodia, a country he claimed didn’t deserve a visit due to its strongman government, first lady Bun Rany greeted Obama with a traditional “sampeah” pressed-hands greeting reserved for servants, a little dig that was probably lost on him but not to Asians.
-So what is really Obama’s tour about? Apparently another vacation and a photo-op.
