Obama's UN Human Rights Report - Out Of Touch With America?

The Examiner points to a number of items Obama and Hillary have highlighted as possible human rights violations that the majority of the American people would disagree with. We have a President that is so enamored with his status on the world scene that he has little regard for the concerns of the American people and the Constitution.

President Obama's administration recently submitted a report to the United Nations on human rights in America. The 29-page report shows the nation badly flawed but fortunate to have a Nobel Prize winner as its leader. The report is billed as "a partial snapshot of the current human rights situation in the United States, including some of the areas where problems persist in our society."

Among the nation's shortcomings listed in the report:

» Arizona has dared to try to enforce immigration laws that the federal government will not. But don't worry, Obama is suing them.

» We incarcerate dangerous terrorists at a military prison in Guantanamo Bay. But don't worry -- Obama has signed three executive orders to protect them from the last administration's rough handling and he "remains committed to closure of the Guantanamo detention facility."

» It's too hard to form a union, the document says -- either that or unions have just become less relevant. But don't worry, "there are several bills in our Congress that seek to strengthen workers' rights" -- bills like "card check," which will help institutionalize union intimidation and coercion by taking away a worker's right to a secret ballot.
