Obama Addresses the U.N. and Blames...Wall Street?!


Recommended Posts


President Barack Obama told the United Nations General Assembly on Thursday that America’s financial crisis was the reason their economies were suffering and promised to not rest until people around the globe prosper. “Two years ago this month, a financial crisis on Wall Street devastated American families on Main Street. The global economy suffered an enormous blow during the financial crisis, crippling markets and deferring the dreams of millions on every continent,” he said.

Obama also assured the 192 nations gathered for the opening of the 2010 U.N. meeting that he has had "no greater focus as president than rescuing our economy from potential catastrophe." In taking credit for saving mankind from financial ruin with his administration’s actions, Obama went on to say, “The global economy has been pulled back from the brink of a depression, and is growing once more…We are exploring ways to expand trade and commerce among nations. But we cannot -- and will not -- rest until these seeds of progress grow into a broader prosperity, for all Americans, and for people around the globe." In a stunning pledge for an American president, Obama told the U.N. diplomats that since Wall Street caused their problems, he would take responsibility for fixing their financial mess.

Surprisingly, Obama’s U.N. speech also seemed to make clear that his ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, was not following his instructions when she refused to call out Libya for their election to the Human Rights Council and Iran’s election to the U.N. Women’s Committee.

Do you think Susan Rice is on her way out? This guy doesn't care who he throws under the bus. Given time, he would probably blame Hillary for whatever his foreign policy is.

I watched some of Akmadineja today, but did not see Susan among those that walked out. Didn't even see that she was there.
