Obama: Arrogance, dismissive, and even derisive

Highlights from Obama's speech in Turkey...excerpts from the London Telegraph:

Mr Obama offer of an olive branch to the Muslim world continues his effort to distance the new White House from the Bush years. In France he spoke of American "arrogance" and a "dismissive, even derisive" attitude towards Europe.

"Let me say this as clearly as I can: the United States is not and never will be at war with Islam. In fact, our partnership with the Muslim world is critical in rolling back a fringe ideology that people of all faiths reject."

Before the speech, Mr Obama stood next to Abdullah Gul, Turkey's president, and stated that in the US:
"We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values."


In regards to Obama's last statement, what are the ideals and set of values that bind us? Are they Judeo-Christian values or Muslim?

  1. This statement by Obama: that we are not a Christian nation is shocking to say the least. Day after day he outrages me, he's driving me closer to my Guns and my Religion :) I mean, everything that this great nation has stood for he is shooting down.. I'm so depressed and deeply disappointed by the "Great Uniter". Has there ever been a bigger joke than calling this guy a "Uniter"?

  2. More like the great deceiver, as you say, everyday is like, what's next? His arrogance with his pro-death choices are ruthless against the culture of life...
