  • "I Love This Guy"

    Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, March 27, 2009:

    This is a crisis that was caused by white people with blue eyes. And before the crisis, they looked as if they knew everything about economics.

    Associate Press, April 2, 2009:

    During a lunch at the Group of 20 summit in London, Obama shook hands with President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and said: “This is my man, right here. I love this guy.”

      Anybody that's familiar with his book with the subtitle "a story about inheritence and race" is not surprised by this. We knew this was coming.


    2. Bart, South Carolina says:

      I read the earlier comments by da Silva and his reference to "white skinned people". Then I watched as Obama "bowed" to the Saudi ruler. Now, this adulation and praise of da Silva by Obama.

      Does anyone seriously believe for one moment this man is loyal to this country at all? I gave him the benefit of the doubt on many occasions but no more.

      He proves over and over again just how much he dislikes this country and he is trying to remake it in his image of what he wants it to be.

      To think the voters of this country were so badly fooled is both frightening and sad. Lemmings will follow anyone and won't realize what they have done until they are over the cliff and on their way to their death on the rocks below.

      Congratulations America! You finally got what you deserved.

      What you would you expect from one racist to another?

      They both hate whites and they are both Marxists.

      I must admit, I never thought that I would live to see the day when our president is bashing his country and its citizens in a foreign land. Obambi seems to have no problem doing this several times a day while on this trip.

    4. Captain Obvious says:

      I wish I could say I am surprised, but Obama has been proving his lack of allegiance to this country for a long time.

    5. Linda D, Henderson N says:

      BHO probably hadn't heard the comments from da Silva, as they were made late last week. He was too busy getting ready for G-20 and loading songs into the iPod for the Queen.

    6. Paul A'Barge says:

      "my man"? "love this guy"?

      You know, I thought Obama's ghetto swagger as he walks up to the podium at news conferences was over the top "bruddah"-tude. But "my man"?

      Is it Obama's intention to wag the ghetto in our faces?

      I guess not enough of us were smart enough to keep ODoofus out of the Whitehouse. Maybe next time…..

      I ain't bettin' on it, tho.

      Well, I guess odumbo is now part of the the "white people with blues eyes" problem…seeing how he now takes his orders from the Bilderberg group and the Trilateral commission. But of course you will never hear or see any of this in the media!! Those are the very people that got him into office, and the same ones who are pulling his strings. He better be careful who he cozies up with, or he may end up like JFK!

    13. Peter Miami Fla says:

      De Silva is white, he doesn't have blue eyes but he is a caucasian, talk about a screwed up world.

      Maybe 2012 will bring and end as some say, I hope.

      Freaks !

      All the "white people with blue eyes" who put the empy suited poverty pimp in office will soon be having buyers remorse.

      Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva,

      Defamation is against the law! Every human race on earth is a part of this crisis, Mr. Arrogance.

      All those who refused to comply with the rules, all those who failed to abide by the law, all those who demand to be made exception to, as if their not as human!

      One thing I'll tell you about the blue eyed white people I know, they would all love every human on earth to be free.

      To the ones who pretend not to understand the metaphor "white people with blue eyes"


    21. João, Brasili says:

      Besides his stupid comments, President Lula is not a racist as many said in this page. By the way, he is white and is married to a woman who has green eyes – not blue though. President Obama's comments were nice, very friendly and were very well received in Brazil – a impostant country in the international arena. What Obama did was a gesture that can be translated as "let's improve the relations betwen the US and Latin America. It is not true that he doesn't like his country or so forth, he was just doing politics and diplomacy when shaking hands with his Brazilian counterpart.

      It amazes me how the right wingers who give a flying f*%k about racial justice and who vociferously supported the incompetent and immoral administration that brought the world to the brink of economic collapse get all in a tither about such obviously trivial nonsense.

    24. Vargas says:

      Very funny to see all these right wing guys fuming at the mouth when someone speaks the truth.

      Finally someone spoke the truth about the one guys that exterminated entire cultures and species all over the world and brought only ruin to whatever they touched.

      Brazil have been, for a long time one of the closest country to the US in Latin America ( of course not a servent, this might be clear!). And Lula, a leftist presidente, had close ties with Bust ( When together they acted like two old cowboys friends indeed) and now, the same thing with Obama. Do not missunderstand what Lula said about blue eyes and white skins! We all know what he intended to mean! And he is right. Those powerful white and blue eyes' men on Wall Street and in the City are really guilty for what is happening not only in the US but all over the world!

    28. Dr Augusto Zimmerman says:

      Since Lula took office in 2002, Brazil has openly consorted with well-known tyrannical regimes and terrorist organisations. One might well remember here that just a few days before the US-led military coalition invaded Iraq, in February 2003, a delegation of congressmen from Lula’s political party went to Baghdad especially to express their unconditional solidarity with Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. It is also common knowledge in Brazil that Lula is a self-declared admirer of the former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. So it is not really a surprise when Lula invited Ahmadinejad to visit Brazil. Lula delights in fostering these sorts of friendships. The fact that he so much appreciates being close to tyrants and terrorists is in itself a strong sign that he is neither a true democrat nor a leader particularly concerned about the protection of human rights. Wo the question is: Why is US President Barack Obama so keen on also befriending Lula? Does this say something about Obama himself and the real nature of his administration?

      This is so typical of our "so called president". Not very presidential and not very smart to align himself with those kinds of left-wingers. Oh for 2012 when that clown is not longer making us the laughing stock of the world.
