Another Obama Apology Tour

By on 6.2.09 | 4:49PM

Previewing his overseas trip (and his much-touted Cairo University speech) to the BBC, President Obama made clear he has more apologizing left to do. Will he still be making apologies when he ends his trip in Buchenwald and Normandy commemorating the lives lost as a result of Hitler’s atrocities?

Another Obama Apology Tour      
By Asher Embry

Obama told the BBC,
We’re treading very dangerously.
America just can’t “impose
[Our] values” forcibly on those
With different cultures, history
Within the “world community.”

Is this the message of his speech
In Cairo, where he’ll bow and preach?
We’ll change our ways to help assuage
The justifiable Muslim rage.
Still more U.S. self-flagellation
To fan Obama adulation;
In search of unrealistic ends --
That terrorists become our friends.

Then on to where the Nazis lost;
Where they unleashed their holocaust.
Our soldiers answered nobly
The call to vanquish tyranny.
We hope he won’t apologize
At Buchenwald, but recognize
Our values led to action then.
Lest history repeat again.
