A shrug of the shoulders and an indication millions of Poles should just “get over it”…

Obama Refuses To Apologize For Polish Death Camp Gaffe

Suggesting a shrug of the shoulders and an indication millions of Poles should just “get over it”, the Obama White House makes light of President Barack Obama’s glaring gaffe against Poland during a Medal of Freedom presentation this past week.

It is interesting to note that while Barack Obama has repeatedly been quick to apologize to the world for America, he rarely if ever is willing to apologize to others for himself.  Such is the case yet again when the president incorrectly used the term “Polish death camps” when referencing Nazi death camps located inside Poland during WWII – a distinction particularly important to Poles who lost many many lives during those horrific years of war.

EXCERPT:

“We regret the misstatement, but that is what it was,” said Obama spokesman Jay Carney, reiterating that the president “misspoke” during a ceremony awarding the highest US civilian honor to late Holocaust hero Jan Karski.

Poland’s Prime Minister Donald Tusk said Obama’s words had hurt all Poles and he expected more from Washington than just regret.

“I am convinced that our American friends can today allow themselves a stronger reaction than a simple expression of regret from the White House spokesman — a reaction more inclined to eliminate once and for all these kinds of errors,” Tusk told reporters in Warsaw.

“Today, this is a problem for the reputation of the United States,” the prime minister said.   LINK

Prime Minister Tusk is correct – President Obama should have quickly made a personal apology to Poland, and yet, the dismissive attitude by this president to America’s long standing allies is nothing new and has been on display before with others such as Israel and Great Britain.  Do not forget the reports that had former French President Nicolas  Sarkozy declaring Barack Obama “insane” – a dispute that apparently arose out of Obama’s dismissive attitude toward Sarkozy’s concerns over the growing threat of Muslim dominance in Western Europe.  Just as he is now doing with Poland, Barack Obama’s attitude toward that threat was also for France and other nations to simply “get over it”.   LINK

“GONNA MAKE HER SWEAT LIKE A FAT ELVIS” -WHI

In Obamanation, Squanderer of Tax Payer Money, United States, Valerie Jarrett on May 24, 2012 at 7:58 am

Today the Daily Caller publishes article titled:  “Who is Valerie Jarrett?”  The information comes as no surprise to regular readers of the UlstermanReport – but it is once again gratifying to see our Insiders make good on yet another promise…

EXCERPT:

Trying to figure out Valerie Jarrett’s mysterious hold on Barack and Michelle Obama is a favorite guessing game in the parlors and dining rooms of Washington. No other White House official in history has enjoyed such a unique relationship with both a president and a first lady, and yet the mainstream media have ignored Jarrett’s enormous influence over the shape and direction of the Obama administration.

…She functions as the eyes, ears, and nose of the president and first lady. She tells them who’s saying what about who, who’s loyal and who’s not. She advises them about who they should see when they visit a city or a foreign country. She determines who gets invited to the White House and who is left out in the cold.

…In the White House pecking order, Jarrett has more clout than the president’s chief of staff. During the savage internecine warfare between Jarrett and Obama’s first two chiefs of staff — Rahm Emanuel and Bill Daley — Obama sided most of the time with Jarrett, a classic limousine liberal who believes that Obama was elected president in order to engineer social change. Ultimately, Jarrett emasculated Emanuel and Daley and forced them from their jobs.

…Jarrett gave her stamp of approval for the $535 million taxpayer-funded loan guarantee to Solyndra, the California solar company that went belly up. Jarrett had close ties to the George Kaiser Family Foundation, which controlled 35.7 percent of Solyndra. The foundation had made a sizable donation to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where Jarrett once served as chairwoman and where one of Obama’s best friends, Eric Whitaker, is currently executive vice president.
