Obama throws Dalai Lama under the bus to appease China

October 5, 2009

Change we can believe in!

The decision came after China stepped up a campaign urging nations to shun the Tibetan spiritual leader.

It means Mr Obama will become the first president not to welcome the Nobel peace prize winner to the White House since the Dalai Lama began visiting Washington in 1991.

In fairness, Obama only promised to meet with Iran without preconditions. Maybe the Dalai Lama should try to acquire nukes and threaten to wipe Israel off the map.

UPDATE: Sincere apologies. I forgot to throw in the obvious hypovehiculation reference. (photo credit: Ace of Spades)

“Meep, meep.”

    It means you idiots are acting like he’s a two-term president and are already writing his history before he has barely started. Ya think he might host the kook later on? You’re Obama Hatred Syndrome is getting more and more inane every passing day.

    Unpersuasive, McRock, unless you can find examples of other Presidents shunning the Dalai Lama early in their terms.

    I can’t imagine Clinton or either of the Bushes telling the Dalai Lama to pound sand.

    Kowtows to the election-stealing mullahs, and spits in the face of the democratic opposition. Bows to the Saudi gangsters. Celebrates commie thugs in South America. And now doing the Chicoms’ bidding regarding this most honorable man, the Dalai Lama.

    Inexcusable. Obambi is a miserable cretin.

    It would have been better if he agreed to the meeting with the Dolly. There would be much more mileage in slamming him form meeting with that New Age Kook! Damn.

    Looks like the libtards turned on the Dalai Lama after he came out as a “gun nut”. heh

    After viewing an interview of the Dali Lama in which he was evasive about his ultimate objective, I came to question his motives regarding China and Tibet. It became apparent that his demand of China is that they not only allow him authority in Tibet but also in 4 large provinces within China. The reason given was that these provinces have some people using the Tibetan language. As for the Peace Prize process I think too often the prize is used for political purposes. Obama was wise not to sacrifice America’s relationship with China on the Dali Lama’s altar of personal aggrandizement.

    Yeah, Obambi wants to ram spending to astronomical levels, and run $2T in deficits every year, and he can’t afford to sacrifice his relationship with the brutal Chicom warlords who will loan him all that money he wants to spend. They might not loan it to him, and then he wouldn’t get to spend all that money, and bury our children in debt forever.

    I see your point.

  10. […] not quite. Of course, if you were listening to Fox News and the assorted voices of Greater Wingnuttopia today, you’d think Obama had just handed Czechoslovakia over to Hitler. Baked […]

    I respect Suu Kyi because she has the guts to stay and fight for her principles, when she could have left like the Dali Lama. The great leaders, and there are many I could point to, always stay and fight for their principles and endure the hardships. The Dali Lama simply goes around living the good life, offering words of not much wisdom to the ignorant and unprincipled. I expect he receives more respect from the West than from his fellow Buddhists. Having lived in Asia for many years and having a Buddhist wife, my perception of the Dali Lama is somewhat different. P.S. I guess all the Obama haters are choking and gagging on the Peace Prize being rammed down their throats today..

    U.S. is fearful of China and so cannot afford to make china unhappy. If they do then China will give United States a spanking they will never forget. So it make sense to disrespect a good person like Dalai Lama. Its the oldest story, US is not a country which is all about good…it just keep trying to sell everyone that they are all about good….no they actually are all about MONEY!!
