Breaking: India, China walk out of Copenhagen

posted at 10:49 am on December 18, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

Barack Obama came, he spoke, and no one concurred:

India and China have taken a united stand and walked out of the climate summit as Copenhagen talks fail.

Tensions prevailed at the climate talks at Copenhagen today, as Indian prime minister Manmohan Singh and China premier Wen Jiabao walked out of the summit along with their respective delegations, as talks failed.

Obama feted Singh just this month, saying that they should be impressed that India got first crack at Obama’s state dinner agenda.  Apparently, Singh was less impressed than Obama presumed.

Meanwhile, Obama is getting some pretty bad reviews for his intervention in Copenhagen … from his once-adoring admirers.  Since this comes from the Left’s major newspaper in the UK, where political biases are openly acknowledged in the media, this may seem like good news for those worried that Barack Obama would give away the store in Copenhagen.  We needn’t have worried; Obama turned out to be just as effective on the world stage as he has been in finding compromises here at home.  The Right has no illusions about Obama, but the disillusionment from the Left is rather amusing:

Barack Obama stepped into the chaotic final hours of the Copenhagen summit today saying he was convinced the world could act “boldly and decisively” on climate change.

But his speech offered no indication America was ready to embrace bold measures, after world leaders had been working desperately against the clock to try to paper over an agreement to prevent two years of wasted effort — and a 10-day meeting — from ending in total collapse. …

Many reactions were strongly critical of Obama. Hugo Chávez, the president of Venezuela, described Obama’s speech as “ridiculous” and the US’s initial offer of a $10bn fund for poor countries in the draft text as “a joke”.

Tim Jones, a spokesman for the World Development Movement, said: “The president said he came to act, but showed little evidence of doing so. He showed no awareness of the inequality and injustice of climate change. If America has really made its choice, it is a choice that condemns hundreds of millions of people to climate change disaster.”

Friends of the Earth said in a statement, “Obama has deeply disappointed not only those listening to his speech at the UN talks, he has disappointed the whole world.”

The World Wildlife Fund said Obama had let down the international community by failing to commit to pushing for action in Congress: “The only way the world can be sure the US is standing behind its commitments is for the president to clearly state that climate change will be his next top legislative priority.”

Honestly, have these people paid no attention to Obama’s performance all year?  He doesn’t do the hard work.  Obama has spent all year outsourcing his work on domestic policy to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, refusing to get involved in negotiations.  Even now, progressives on Capitol Hill wonder if Obama ever wanted a public option in his signature domestic policy priority at all — a rather strange gap, considering the high-profile cheerleading coming from Obama all year long.  That’s all he does: campaign.

The one issue that he could not outsource was Afghanistan.  As Commander in Chief, the decision on resourcing and strategy was his alone … and it took him almost four months to make it.

The truth is that Barack Obama would make a much better Secretary-General of the UN than an American President, and even the Left is beginning to see it.

As for Copenhagen, Obama was already redeploying over the event horizon before news of the walkout hit, according to ABC News, which had reported optimistically on Obama’s efforts for most of the morning:

“We’ve done what we can here,” a senior White House official in Copenhagen, Denmark, tells ABC News. “The Chinese are dug in on transparency and are refusing to let people know they’re living up to their end of the agreement.”

After landing in Denmark early this morning, President Obama met with Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao during a bilateral at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen to press the case that China needs to allow for transparency.

“The President’s priority is to make our economy far more focused on a clean energy economy that creates jobs,” the official said. “He is here to work constructively and participate in hoping to get an international accord. But not getting one here won’t change wanting to transform our economy to create the new foundation he’s talked about.”

Well, he’s been there one whole day.  Who can argue with his commitment after giving one speech and holding one meeting?

And the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 were his, and nothing to apologize for.

PersonFromPorlock on December 18, 2009 at 12:30 PM

1. Civil Rights Act of 1964 wasn’t “his”. He signed it, but it was JFK’s baby. It was reported out of Committee in November 1963, just before he was killed, and was going to be bottled up by a Democrat Senator from Virginia. LBJ deserves some credit for getting it thru Congress, but he cannot claim ownership of it.

2. Voting Rights Act of 1965-Originated with the assorted civil rights groups at the time. Only after some of them were murdered did LBJ get involved, and only after he had been safely elected in 1964.

How’s that “reset posture” in the world working out, Obambi? Go look up the word “naive” in the dictionary. Your picture is probably all ready in there.

I wonder if that’s indeed what he ultimately wants. True, he’s a US citizen so CAN’T be the UNSG, but that doesn’t mean rules can’t be changed.

So much for his plan to cozy up with Chavez. Now let me get this right. Our allies don’t like him, our enemies who he wanted to be our allies don’t like him, and the majority of the American people don’t like him. Smart Power!

Where do these people get the idea that the USA is here to flip the bill for the entire world? Sovereignty applies to us keeping our nose out of their business as well as them doing the same with us. These guys want it all ways. If they really believe the BS they spew then they’d kick their citizens in the rear and start having THEM flip the bills for their own countries.

My biggest problem with this whole, the USA is so successful and pollutes so much that they should cover the cost for 3rd worlds is that 3rd world countries, like those in Africa, have been independent countries for HOW LONG? And how long has the USA been around? 1776? Let’s get real. We didn’t even control the entirety of the Continental US at that time. If after hundreds of years your country still gets it’s commerce done via donkey, that’s YOUR fault, not the success of the USA.

He passed these because Republican leaders were able to deliver the votes. He couldn’t get enough Democrats to vote for it, even though he Obama like majorities in both houses.

If there going to spend time on that, why don’t they address a really important issue. Making sure the volume level is the same for every channel in your cable package. I get so tired of having to adjust the volume every time I change the channel.

Do you know why they BOTH walked out?

Obama and the leftists ACTUALLY DEMANDED
that the chinese and indian nations
verify that they are cutting their Gas emmissions..

When india and China heard this they Bolted for the door.

Since this would absolutly RUIN their economies
They both flipped obama the finger and walked out..

Only the democrats and obama are this dumb..
When obam aand the democrats sign this travesty
I hope all of you unemployed liberals like your
unemployment checks..

Because your going to be see-ing a lot more of them
for Decaedes to come..

All courtesy of obama and the dumb ass democrats

Funny. I was thinking along the same lines when I saw the video clip on the news that Tanya outta do a bodly language analysis.

On a related note to the Flickr picture linked above. Below the caption, there’s a peculiar notice (emphasis mine):

This official White House photograph is being made available only for publication by news organizations and/or for personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photograph. The photograph may not be manipulated in any way and may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggests approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House.

Excuse me?!?!?! If this is an official WH photo, then We The People own the “copyright”. It’s our taxes that pay the photographer, materials et al.

Another thing, just by the selective language, is the implication that bloggers (or any other non-real journalists) can’t use the photo.

Now I’m curious. Is that notice standard verbiage, or is that something as unprecedented as the Office of the Precedent-Elect”?

“It would be nice to negotiate with somebody who can make political decisions.”–Obama

How many have said the same about Obamalleable?

China graded the Hopenhagen FAILURE, transforming the adage “first come, first served” into “first tossed, first road kill”.

Internationally, Obama+Hillary<3 low-level Chinese diplomats. Our worst leaders ever just got bitch slapped. After dishing it out, after asking for it, how does it feel, Mr. President and Madam Secretary?

maverick muse on December 19, 2009 at 7:54 AM

Like A Rolling Stone, 1965

Once upon a time you dressed so fine
You threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn’t you?
People’d call, say, “Beware doll, you’re bound to fall”
You thought they were all kiddin’ you
You used to laugh about
Everybody that was hangin’ out
Now you don’t talk so loud
Now you don’t seem so proud
About having to be scrounging for your next meal.

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be without a home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone?

You’ve gone to the finest school all right, Miss Lonely
But you know you only used to get juiced in it
Nobody has ever taught you how to live out on the street
And now you’re gonna have to get used to it
You said you’d never compromise
With the mystery tramp, but now you realize
He’s not selling any alibis
As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes
And say do you want to make a deal?

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be on your own
With no direction home
A complete unknown
Like a rolling stone?

You never turned around to see the frowns on the jugglers and the clowns
When they all did tricks for you
You never understood that it ain’t no good
You shouldn’t let other people get your kicks for you
You used to ride on the chrome horse with your diplomat
Who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat
Ain’t it hard when you discover that
He really wasn’t where it’s at
After he took from you everything he could steal.

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be on your own
With no direction home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone?

Princess on the steeple and all the pretty people
They’re all drinkin’, thinkin’ that they got it made
Exchanging all precious gifts
But you’d better take your diamond ring, you’d better pawn it babe
You used to be so amused
At Napoleon in rags and the language that he used
Go to him now, he calls you, you can’t refuse
When you ain’t got nothing, you got nothing to lose
You’re invisible now, you got no secrets to conceal.

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be on your own
With no direction home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone?

Bob Dylan

Yet global authoritarians just finished bitch slapping Obama in Copenhagen. Hazing? Now he “counts”? In a pig’s sty. At the bottom of the totem pole. Obama has already offended every American ally. Corrupt academia drowning in their own destruction can’t empower Obama against the powerful force of self-interests ruling the day from Russia, China, both Koreas, Iran with all Islam, India, Africa, and South America.

These guys can smell a weak president a mile away. Also, they know that because he’s a Marxist he is going to bend over backwards to please them…China because they are Marxists, too and India because it is full of poor “brown people”.

For all their commie agenda’s, I have to give the Chinese credit for one thing….they aren’t willing to sell their sovereignty.
