The President and commander in chief along with the first lady have backed our military all the way.

You are the arrogant one to use this Memorial Day to try and make political hay. YOU ARE DISGUSTING.
Honor the lives lost and our military on this weekend.

You and those like you are what is wrong in America
spare me

Not that I believe there was a shred of real sincerity in his statement, but what did Bush Senior mean when he vowed to the world a "kinder, gentler nation?" Don't such words clearly imply that the U.S. had room for improvement in it's attitude toward the world?

NO, not using Memorial Day. My brother lost his life serving and no you are not going to use that day to criticize anyone. Blow yourself, I will provide the magnifying glass.

Try and stop me, mutherf**ker.

Memorial Day is a good day to remember the sacrifices made in the name of freedom. And one big freedom is the freedom to criticize Obama for the failure he is.

I really think the president is being played like a puppet by a global group somewhere.

Blaming any president is like blaming a puppet.

So, you say that our president has sullied America's name by calling our nation 'arrogant.' And you've gone on to point us at rant blogs about the same thing, plus throw in your tired quote of what a president said a century ago about a President's role.. But nowhere have you put Obama's use of the word "arrogant" into its proper context.

The speech you refer to was given at a town hall meeting in Strasbourg, France on April 3, 2009. Remember the 'Freedom Fries' and other hothead, blowhard nonsense over France's reservations about joining Bush's Iraq crusade six years earlier? The fake premise of WMD's? By 2009, the vast majority of Americans had come to their senses over the foolhardy rashness and arrogance of our mostly unilateral move in the Iraq invasion.

In the 2009 speech, President Obama said he came to Europe to "renew partnerships" and repair relations between the United States and its allies that had been damaged because of the Iraq War.

"We must be honest with ourselves," the president said. "In recent years, we've allowed our alliance to drift."

Obama said the United States was partly to blame because "there have been times where America's shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive" toward Europe. But he said Europe had to accept responsibility and make changes too.

"In Europe, there is an anti-Americanism that is at once casual but can also be insidious. Instead of recognizing the good that America so often does in the world, there have been times where Europeans chose to blame America for much of what's bad," Obama said.

Both of these attitudes "do not represent the truth," Obama continued. "America is changing, but it cannot be America alone that changes."

If you choose to grab onto but one word of a speech to support endless, tangential ravings, that's your business. But most of us see such actions as, if not idiotic, simply arrogant displays of egotistical childishness.

In view of this and similar raves you've initiated on this forum, let me make a suggestion: If you keep finding your foot in your mouth, try keeping your mouth closed while kicking at thin air.

Sure,'Monty'... I suppose you feel that part about what Obama actually said could have been left out?

Besides off-topic snippets, have you anything to add to the subject of this thread?
