With his trademark humility, President Obama noted in his speech this morning that "change cannot happen overnight" and that one speech in Cairo -- even delivered by him -- will not bring about world peace.



Obama Treated Like Royalty in Saudi Visit

Obama Given Bling By Saudi King

Wary World Is Listening

But if world peace is attained by complimenting those on the other side into submission, he made some serious progress.

Obama really buttered them up in Cairo.

He thanked them for everything from algebra to the pen, though he curiously failed to mention that they often throw people in prison for using it.

He even went so far as to tell the audience that he considers "it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear."

Wow. That won't be the last time you hear that line.

And anyway, where exactly is that in the oath of office he took?

And if talking is going to resolve all the problems in the world, Obama got a good bit of that out of the way today.

He talked and talked and talked and talked.

And then kept talking.

Vacillating between a lecture-some professor and a talk show therapist, Obama started out numbering the grave and important issues he wanted to discuss. After a half-dozen, he junked the whole numbering system.

Or, lost count.

The problem with talking so much is that you eventually just start babbling and saying a bunch of stuff that makes no sense.

At one point, Obama fretted over the rise of new power that, to the horror of civilized people, exudes an obsessed and twisted view of "sexuality" and "mindless violence."

Islamo-fascism?

No, the Internet.

They guy is confronting one of the most evil and relentless mindsets in the history of man and he finds room in his big address to whine about the Internet -- by far a greater tool for freedom than anything else.

He also promised -- again, with his trademark modesty -- to bring to the effort of peace in the Middle East all "the patience that the task requires."

That's a lot of patience for one man. Like Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King combined.

Good thing he's the master of so much patience because he'll need every bit of it -- even with great speeches in Cairo.

WELL i should have deleted that, it was a topic of another article, but cario is in egypt, as was the speach, but he was in saudi arabia first, and the king told him our history with rossevelt, just as they did when james baker or some official was laying the ground work for us using saudi arabia as a base for desert storm, we have been ok with saudi arabia for the most part, we sell them fighter jets, where i use to work has a plant in jetta, thats on the red sea side, i think, without getting the atlas out, Mecca and Medina i think are close, anyway, we shipped lots of building there, some to hold 747's but finally in like 1980 built a plant, if u build there the gov, owns half, and saudis dont work, they get oil money for the most part, they do have some saudi in upper jobs but where i worked they imported philipinos to actually do the work ,, we have ups and downs usually how isreal goes, like the saudi oil embargo against us .i think during carters administration but i could be wrong, its all memory, we started all that aleternative fuel then but stoped when gas went back down, that was a mistake, we have military hardware stationed kuwait, all we have to do is fly in troops to drive them, lol, and barain is friendly, i think the fleet is stationed there,i think oman is ok but not sure, but osama was from a saudi family so there are some bad ones, but i think they disowned him, not sure, but not much freedom in saudi,
