Third Bush term? Indonesian students throw shoes at photo of Obama

by editor on March 10, 2010

He was supposed to be America’s first soul president, but he turns out to be just another sole brother.

Powerline reports the story:

One of the key arguments of Barack Obama’s Presidential campaign was that he would improve America’s image around the world. This idea was based on the false assumption that anti-Americanism was due to factors peculiar to the Bush administration, as opposed to the basic realities of America’s role in the world and the hostility that many feel toward our values and interests. Thus, anyone foolish enough to believe that electing Obama would transform our international relationships must be disappointed.

Most recently, student protests have broken out in Indonesia against Obama’s planned visit to the land of his youth. One might think that Indonesia, especially, would welcome Obama as a favorite son. But Muslims in the world’s largest Muslim country don’t see it that way. Here, protesters hurl shoes at a picture of Obama…

Say what? Throwing shoes at Obama?

Not possible. Just not possible. The Muslim world loves us now that we’ve ousted the evil George W. Booosh. And they love President Obama because he gave them that pretty apology speech and he called America a Muslim country and all.

To paraphrase Sam & Dave, “He’s a sole man. Doo-doo-dah-doo, doo-doo-dah-doo. He’s a sole man.“ (Courtesy Sam and Dave, 1967)

I didn’t laugh when it happened to Bush because, unlike Obama, he earned my respect even if I didn’t agree 100% with all that he did. Also I admire the fact that he was so athletic, he didnt just dodge one shoe, he dodged two. I wonder with all his smoking if Obama would be athletic enough to dodge anything coming his way.
