Australia Longs For A Leader Like President Obama

Tony Abbott, the Australian PM, is as embarrassing to Australians as George W. Bush. He's a puppet of Rupert Murdoch, so what do you expect?

Confusing Tasmania with China, Tony Abbott almost appears likable and human in his blundered toast with Prime Minister Xi Jinping. But don't let a momentary display of humanity confuse you. Tony Abbott is the Australian Teabagger, no doubt about it.

Abbott takes the global warming is a hoax stupidity to a whole different level. He repealed the carbon tax on emissions and mining in August, just a few months before this last weekend's G20 in Brisbane. Remember this summit, a historical agreement between the U.S. and China to cut emissions, while the Murdochian puppet does the exact opposite?

In order to increase international tensions, Abbott has made a few blunders. In August, he visited the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea and basically denounced the Communist North as a few North Korean soldiers stared right back at him. He is a typical GOP xenophobe type as he's created a very nationalistic Australia that treats immigrants like shit, kind of like the folks on the Texas/Mexico border.

Anti-science, anti-evolution, sound familiar?

Thus, we now have no science minister, and this is as one with the general tenor of the sort of dumbed-down conservatism to which Mr Abbott adheres. Science comes under particular attack, because it is the great dethroner of religious power.

Abbott is a known misogynist, religious-zealot and corporatist, anti-education whore. He has sold out to Murdoch's organization and his popularity is falling fast. It is confusing to Australians how we don't all get behind a refreshingly intelligent and capable president like Barack Obama.
