    Daly represents Northern Dublin in Parliament. She made the speech during the conclusion of the G8 summit last month in Northern Ireland.

    In the video she said, “Is this person going for the hypocrite of the century award? Because we have to call things by their right names, and the reality is that by any serious examination, this man is a war criminal.”

    “He has just announced his decision to supply arms to the Syrian opposition,” she continued. “Including jihadists, which will fuel the destabilization of the region, continue to undermine secularism and set back conditions for women. President Obama is, in essence, stalling the Geneva peace talks by trying to broker enhanced leverage for the Syrian opposition by supplying it with arms and to hell with the thousands more Syrians who will lose their lives and the tens of thousands who will be displaced as the war continues.”

    “This is the man who has facilitated a 200 percent increase in the use of drones, which have killed thousands of people including hundreds of children,” she said.

    Daly also completely trashed the media, which of course has been known to flatter the Obamas to no end.

    She said, “It is difficult to decide which is worse, the outpourings of President Obama and his wife or the sycophantic fawning over them by the political establishment and sections of the media.”

    “While we had separate and special news bulletins by the state broadcaster to tell us what Michelle Obama and her daughters had for lunch in Dublin, there was very little questioning of the fact that they were having lunch with ‘Mr. Tax Exile’ himself [a reference to U2 lead singer Bono]. The statement that Mrs. Obama was glad to be home was barely challenged even though ‘home’ is a country she has been in for less than one week and to which her husband has only tenuous links.”

    The Irish lawmaker does not feel the same anger towards American citizens, however.

    She said, “People in this country are very fond of our American brothers and sisters. We stand far more shoulder to shoulder with them by making valid criticisms of their president who has broken his election promises rather than just pimping this nation as a tax haven for their corporations. I am sure the Americans would far prefer their multinationals to pay their taxes at home rather than offshore here so that they could develop their health care and would not be wasting money on arms being sent to slaughter people in other countries.”

    Er, I'm getting kind of old now, so forgive me if my memory isn't what it used to be, but wasn't one of the promises Emperor Obama ran on that he would fix foreign relations and clean up our reputation around the world, after Bush allegedly ruined it?

    So, we've alienated England and Germany, stabbed Israel in the back repeatedly, and now I guess we can cross Ireland off the list.

    But at least we've still got Luxembourg.

    "But at least we've still got Luxembourg."

    Remember, though not a country, the jihadists.

    G8 summit was last June. We don't need to go to firebrand legislators from other countries to get ammunition against Obama. Really, it's like citing Ted Danson slamming conservatives on issues.
