The G20 Summit for 2012 got underway in a posh resort in San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico yesterday. Russia President Vladimir Putin had a one-on-one with Barack Obama. Issues such as Syria were discussed, though the general consensus seems to be that Putin lectured the man-child Obama. There were also some meetings with other world leaders and the subject of the Euro Zone debt crisis was high on the topic list. British Prime Minister David Cameron is arguing against newly elected French President Francois Hollande′s plan to raise taxes and increase government spending. All agree that job creation should be a priority, but factions are forming on just how to go about achieving such.
One thing we can say for certain is that once again, the woeful limitations of Obama as a political leader is putting America in the backseat. The other world leaders see Obama as a naïve fool and are paying him letting regard. For example, Putin addressed the situation in Syria by raising Egypt. Putin told Obama that while he may agree that Bashar al-Assad might be expendable, he does not want to see a group like the Muslim Brotherhood take over Syria as they have in Egypt. Obama apparently has no problem with the Muslim Brotherhood, even though war clouds are forming between Egypt and our only real ally in the region, Israel. Just in the last 48 hours, Israel has begun to move tanks and other military units units closer to the border.
As for economic issues, why would any world leader pay any attention to Obama? He is totally clueless about how an economy works. His policies of the last three and a half years have been a disaster in the United States. Obama is scheduled to meet with China President Hu Jintao today. So we have another chance to see Obama being treated like a school boy who just failed basic arithmetic.
Yes, the G20 Summit 2012 in Mexico is another shining example of how poorly served we Americans are by Barack Obama. Better that he go off and play a 101st round of golf than try playing politics with seasoned professionals. Vladimir Putin made mince meat out of Obama yesterday and we can expect Hu Jintao to do so again today. What an embarrassment!
