Obama to Go to Copenhagen. Again.

President Barack Obama has decided to attend the global climate summit in Copenhagen on December 9, followed by a stopover in Oslo to accept the Nobel Peace Prize. Copenhagen was the site of an earlier Obama trip on behalf of the Chicago Olympic bid.

Undoubtedly, the trip will be unprecedented.

  1. nothing unprecedented about it: he’ll go, he’ll either act the fool or say something stupid in public, further showing his ass to the world, and we will mock him for it, even as the MFM tries desperately to cover it up or play it off.

    he will fit in with the summit people though, a bullshitter in a building full of bullshitters.

  2. It will give him another chance to confer with Gen. McChrystal.

  3. I think this is a must read –

    “…a compendium of programming code segments that show comments by the programmer that suggest places where data may be corrected, modified, adjusted, or busted. Some the HARRY_READ_ME comments are quite revealing. For those that don’t understand computer programming, don’t fret, the comments by the programmer tell the story quite well even if the code itself makes no sense to you.”

  4. I’m laughing my ass off here. Obama is sending tens of thousands of troops into a war. He is the direct opposite of the Nobel Peace Prize’s explicit mandate. He simply did not reduce war.

    this prize has been a tool for evil for years, and now it is just a punchline.

  5. I am sure Obama has been briefed on the ramifications of the East Anglia CRU disclosure. I am waiting for him to claim (I have always said) he had not bought into AGW. Problem is it fits his agenda for it to be true. If he spends the time and money to do something he knows is false and misleading. Could he be held accountable for being part of a fraud? Is that in impeachable offense in 2011.

  6. Hmmm, can go to Copenhagen to chat a fraudulent theory.

    Can go to Copenhagen to beg for Olympics.

    Can go to Oslo to pick up unearned Nobel joke.

    Can’t seem to make it to Berlin to celebrate the fall of the Berlin Wall and the beginning of the end of the Iron Curtain, millions gaining Liberty from that day forward.


    It’s unprecedented – Berlin isn’t and can’t remotely be about Obama. Everything else is all about him.

  7. I’m still pissed he couldn’t squeeze Berlin into his busy schedule.

    I guess when there’s something in it for him…

  8. LOL – great minds Vivian.

  9. It makes sense. America lost the last time he was in Copenhagen, and you know what they say, when things happen you like in foreign lands you always want to go back…

    So Obama can head over to Denmark again for another meeting where America will lose. He may even try to move the White House to Copenhagen if the climate conference denigrates our country enough.

  10. Yes, but if he winds up moving the UN to another shore as a result, it’s a win – win.

  11. Vivian Louise – for Our Leader, it’s even worse than that …

    Remember who said “We welcome change and openness; for we believe that freedom and security go together, that the advance of human liberty can only strengthen the cause of world peace. There is one sign the Soviets can make that would be unmistakable, that would advance dramatically the cause of freedom and peace. General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization, come here to this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!

    On a different note, have youforgotten your D’UhhhBama Code ? How can The One stay away from a city whose very name is an anagram for openChange ?

  12. Heh, the Chump in Chief is off to foul up another international meeting.

    Good! I mean, imagine what might happen if someone actually competent went to Copenhagen. This way, all we have to do is send along several planeloads of syncophants, cronies, and fixers, put them up in some fine hotels for the duration, and turn off the tv when the Great Narcissist speaks about himself to the assembled loons.

  13. Will he be bowing to Mother Gaia this time?

    Or just the Danish?

  14. Anything to change the subject, evade responsibility and get outta Dodge for a few days. The fawning press coverage is just an added benefit.

  15. “Undoubtedly, the trip will be unprecedented.”

    Of course. How many US presidents have been to Copenhagen twice?

  16. At least he is combining multiple errands in one trip. Way to minimize the footprint, Mr. Present.

  17. Is it bad to wish that he gets a cold and goes to Groningen for treatment?

  18. I don’t mind him going to Copenhagen, I mind him coming back.

  19. There’s an apt song we can sing to the Obamessiah on this occasion.

  20. Brother B.

    I saw that earlier today and thought about posting it. Hey everybody, check out the song in #20.

    If there was a “Quote of the Week” feature here, I think Kevin Murphy at #19 has it for this week.

  21. Undoubtedly, the trip will be unprecedented.

    The current occupant of the White House bowing like a friggin’ servant before the king of Saudi Arabia and the Emperor of Japan certainly was unprecedented.

  22. I don’t mind him going to Copenhagen, I mind him coming back.
