America’s Apologizer Visits Argentina

While abroad, America’s president should be the nation’s biggest advocate.

During his apology tour to Cuba and Argentina, Barack Obama announced that the U.S. government will release secret documents that detail its role in the military coup that occurred in Argentina 40 years ago. Argentine President Mauricio Macri described the coup as “the darkest chapter in our history.” Recently, the relationship between the two countries has warmed. America and Argentina settled a 15-year dispute over repaying bonds worth billions of dollars. Macri, who happens to be a centrist leader, instituted reforms in the country to bring it back into the world economy that left Obama “impressed.”

However, according to Rush Limbaugh, it’s nothing more than an underhanded apology of America’s past foreign policies. “Obama has essentially said, ‘… We’re sorry,’” Limbaugh said. “‘We’re gonna open up these secret documents. We’re going to release these secret documents to you so that you can see what a bunch of reprobates all of my predecessors have been toward you.’ … Yes, so you Argentinians can see how much better I am as president than some of these heathens that served in the office before I came along.”

While abroad, the American president should be the nation’s biggest advocate; he shouldn’t be disgracing the country by saying how awful he thinks it is. Yet, that’s exactly what Obama did at a town-hall event in Argentina when he said America’s system of checks and balances has its problems. “It’s sort of like herding cats,” Obama complained. “You’re constantly trying to get everybody to work together and move in the same direction at the same time, and that’s difficult.” And he said this in a country where 40 years ago somewhere between 10,000 to 30,000 people “disappeared” thanks to an upheaval of the established political system.
