President Obama’s First Interview To Arab TV

- By Bossip Staff

Posted By Bossip Staff

President Obama isn’t wasting any time in his efforts to change the American image in the Middle East:

Barack Obama gave his first formal television interview as US President to an Arabic cable TV network, telling Al-Arabiya that when it comes to Middle East matters “all too often the United States starts by dictating”.

Mr Obama taped the interview with the Dubai-based network as his envoy to the Middle East, former Senator George Mitchell, set out for an eight-day trip to the region and elsewhere.

The interview complemented the new administration’s first efforts to reach out to Arab leaders in the region, who have been wary at best of US efforts to broker peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

Mr Obama said he felt it important to “get engaged right away” in the Mideast and had directed Mr Mitchell to talk to “all the major parties involved”. His administration would craft an approach after that, he said in the interview.

Part 2

We’re sure that Bush’s a$$ is in Texas downing a few Centriums trying to figure about why President Obama is actually doing his job. We can hear him now, “Y’all, must be sh*tting me? They got real live TV’s over there?” SMH

    Let’s see if our friends in the Arab communities take the bait. If they engage President Obama on any level it will signal an unprecedented shift in relations.

    I suppose the the carrot is being offered right now. Let’s all pray that they take it because I fear the backlash consequences of the stick.

    I’m glad to see President Obama doing this. Bush made America seem as if we are blood sucking leeches. Obama is upfront and personal and has a lot of work ahead of him to try and reshape America. I wish him nothing but the best in the White House.

    HANNIBAL—-

    And so what if in fact the President was an Arab? You sounds just like the rest of those Neo-cons fools who have their heads stuck up their Azzes. You are no worst than that ingnorant woman who John Mccain had to correct at his rally as she got on national TV and said….”He’s Ahh…He’s Ahh….He’s Ahh….Arabbbb.” I don’t know any Arab that’s going to sit in a Christian church for 20 years. I just don’t. So you are saying that an Arab American, A Chinese American, A Hispanic American should never be president? I’m sorry to tell you that….this country did not and was not founded by the European Americans (Whites should I translate). I think idiots like you Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Billy O’ Really—-should take a refresher course on history. Then pull your head out of your azz, then pray your ignorance away!

    I hope he can connect bridges over trouble waters all people just wanted to be understood and acknowledge for their talents and abilities.

  • DR.FUNK

    Good luck Mr.President.These ass backward in-breds hate each other & Israel….and much like Black folx in this country who blame “The White System” for it’s collective failings…they blame America & Jews.Both are WRONG.A good start to things would be CUTTING OFF ALL FOREIGN AIDE & WEAPONS SALES to the Arab states.Blame our shortage of cash on the cut-off.(it’s true)Let the thugs who run these countries come out of pocket with all that oil money if they wanna maintain.You claim you want to have this nation run on alternative energy sources SOONER rather than later.This is where it starts.

    Another intelligent post! Who cares what nationality or ethnicity that they are?? That was part of Bush’s regime, to persecute the Arabs. Not all of them are evil or want to do something to us…Some of them do like us….Obama was telling them, that Middle East appears to be nervous…lol..SO unlike, Bush, ready to dig in right away, not afraid of his enemies or people that are different from him…. I like him, so much..Cool under pressure, don;t let people get him riled, up…America just might stand a second chance before the rest of the World..Obama will deal directly with the Arabs…For the first time, since 1973, Iran is considering opening a U.S. diplomacy embassy in their country for the United States…What Bush did in 8 years, may be able to be undone…he is addressing them directly. He’s not scared of them..Barack is not a punk..Don;t let the intelligence and book steez, get it twisted…You’ll see, Barack is NOT the one, to be trying to play games, with folks…

    @hannibal- BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! to you, for your comments…
