Indonesia Takes Down Obama Statue

Posted on February 16, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

The “Barry Dream Statue” was inaugurated December 10, 2009 at the moment Pres. Barak Obama received his Nobel Peace Prize in Copenhagen.  The idea was conceived by American Ron Muller, a pizza restaurant owner in Jakarta, Indonesia, who is the president of the “Friends of Obama” organization, a non-profit that raised the statue funds.  Muller’s purpose was to encourage the youth of Indonesia to believe that they can rise to success like little Barry Soetoro Obama who lived in Jakarta for four years until his mother sent him back to the States at age 10.

Controversy arose when two groups began petitioning to have the statue removed, perhaps re-located to the school Barry attended.  They contend that Barry Soetoro, as he was known when he lived in Jakarta, has made no contribution to Indonesia and his statue should not occupy such an honored and visible location.   They pointed out that there are many Indonesian heroes whose contributions have not been adequately recognized or honored and deserve to have statues in the Central Park, rather than an American who has done nothing for the betterment of Indonesia. 

Further embarrassment rises from the Nobel Peace Medal around the statue’s neck, which many find inappropriate because Barry Soetoro Obama has done nothing to deserve that honor, either.

It seems that Barry can fool all of the people some of the time, but can’t fool all of the people all of the time.   

The statue has come down.

(Pres. Obama is planning to take his family to Indonesia later this year and is quoted as saying that he hoped the statue would remain so that he could show it to his daughters.)

What a lovely statue and such an honor for our President. I cannot wait to see it when I visit Jakarta, which should be at the shame time as the President, which is in June. President Obama doesn’t try to fool anyone, contrary to the anti Obama article accompanying this picture. He doesn’t need to. When he says he’s going to do something, he honestly does it. It’s the misinformed Un-American losers that fool each other. They need to support the man who is doing his best to turn America around, from the hell and downward spirl that the last administration left us in, to an America that works for all people, not just the rich. I can honestly say, it’s the first time in a long time that I am actually proud to be an American. I was so embarrassed traveling the world with a complete pompous ass named George W Bush for our President. Thank God we finally have an intelligent man as our President, who will turn us around for the better in his 2 terms!!!! Looking forward to visiting Indonesia….xxoo

The left doesn’t debate the issues. They start name-calling, i.e. “misinformed American losers.” Anyone who opposes Obama is automatically a loser, according to them. As for “misinformed”, the commentor here tops the list of most uninformed person of the year. “When he says he’s going to do something, he honestly does it.”

Promised not to sign any bills including earmarks. Signed every one of them.
Promised to have bills debated openly so Americans know who is at the table and saying what. All have been behind closed doors with a handful of Democrats and the SEIU’s Andy Stern.
Promised to put the debates on C-Span. None were, until C-Span begged them and public pressure mounted.
Promised to put bills on the internet five days before the vote so Americans could read the bills and know what’s in them. The bills were releaed a few hours before the vote and the members of Congress and the Senate didn’t even have time to read them. They voted on bills they had not read.
Promised that his adminstration would not be controlled by lobbyists. No one has visited the White House more than Andy Stern, head of the Service Employees International Union, who had visited 23 times in just a few months. No one came anywhere close to this number of visits. The health care bill throws tons of benefits to SEIU members.
Promised not to raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000. The heath care bill includes taxes, plus a mandate that hits everyone, including school districts. Those school districts’ expenses will skyrocket. They are funded by property taxes which all owners of land/homes have to pay. Everyone’s property taxes will go up. They are raising taxes on capital gains which affects everyone who has a 401K retirement plan which includes teachers that don’t make $250,000. His adviser is currently talking about a value-added tax which will be levied on every product or service we purchase. That tax will hit everyone.
I could go on and on, but space is limited. I wish lefties would get informed and get their info from someplace other than Chris (Salinksy) Matthews with his thrill up his leg at the sound of Obama’s voice.
