    I think this is a great demonstration of good leadership and having a leader who commands considerable respect in the world community.

    Late in the afternoon on Friday, with the clock ticking down to zero, a rather dramatic scene unfolded that surprised even several top leaders at the climate negotiations in Copenhagen. In a secret meeting between Chinese, Indian, and Brazilian heads of state, the door swung open revealing President Obama, who hadn’t been invited but had arrived to crash the meeting. Several diplomats protested the intrusion, but Obama simply informed them he wouldn’t accept them negotiating in secret. He sat down and started talking.

    The result of that discussion is the outcome of the Copenhagen climate talks—a political agreement that gets something on paper but lacks several of the components that many had expected to be finalized at the meeting.-negotiators-reach-final-agreement.

    Hmm, a little departure from the "I apologize for the USA" president. Good for him. It seemed like the rest of the world was no longer taking us seriously.

    The link doesn't work BTW.

    He should voice the objection to secret negotiations to the Senate regarding healthcare.

    But on subeject, there's a non binding agreement that means absolutely nothing - thank God. obama is a moron. Instead of promising $20B for wealth redistribution he should put that $20B towards a Manhattan Project style research project to find a true alternative energy. At $200K per engineer (which is reasonable given that it includes all costs of employment not just salary), he could hire 100,000 engineers a year and I bet it would result in something good and get us off oil by 2020. Instead we're giving that money to third world countries; just 3 days after he scared us about bankruptcy.

    I think it was under Bush that the rest of the world had no respect for us. When Obama got elected, people seemed quite pleased the world over for a variety of reasons, not the least was his intelligence.

    Link fixed. Thanks for telling me. http://blog.newsweek.com/blogs/thegaggle/

    I hope he didn't kill any US citizens like Bush did ... got to be better than bush ... be more bush.

    Gitmo attracts terrorists ... cruise missles kill them - very cool.

    I detect sour grapes and jealousy among the right. It's actually rather entertaining.

    They might not have respected Bush, but they feared him !
    They don't fear or respect Obama.

    Obama is like a stuffed animal. He is cute & cuddley and your are not
    going to get hurt playing with him.

    Bringing home a non binding - pinkie promise from China is a worth less
    than a happy meal prize.

    This is one of those rare examples of cause and effect:

    A meeting is in complete disarray. It's such a mess that various parties call for Obama himself to become more engaged.

    Obama enters the scene and, though the accomplishments are marginal, the fact is that Copenhagen has taken another step towards addressing global warming. Progress comes more slowly than we would like, but progress continues.

    Obama obviously demonstrated great statesmanship in this instance, and the right, rather than acknowledge the truth, is just expressing sour grapes.

    Only the left would highlight the silver lining of an empty pocket.

    Only the right would spin progress into failure to serve their political ends. (Actually, the left would do that too, so never mind.)

    How is giving $20B a year away progress ? Yes, I know, we have so much money in the treasury we don't know what to do with it so we might as well distribute it around the world. These massive surpluses let us do so much good :rolleyes:

    :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Both sides do a little too much spinning.
    We need to get back to Right vs Wrong
    and forget about Left vs Right.
