Lest you thought Obama spent all of his time abroad this week acting like a tourist -- sightseeing, taking in a ballgame, tangoing with Argentine beauties -- be reassured, he still found plenty of time to point out the many flaws he sees in America.
Between his stays in Havana and Buenos Aires, we counted at least 15 times Obama talked down his employer, The United States of America.
Specifically, he said ...
America must have the "courage to acknowledge" its role in Argentina's human-rights abuses
America can't be slow talking about human-rights violations, as we've done in Argentina
The Constitution's separation of powers makes it hard for America to adapt to the changing times
America must do more to promote equality
America needs to reduce discrimination
America suffers from "political polarization"
America was built by slaves
America has too much money in politics
America has a problem with racially-biased criminal justice system, a racially-biased society, and a legacy of slavery & segregation
Many American states would have forbidden his biracial parents to marry -- had they tried
Many American schools in the south were segregated when he was young
American democracy is imperfect
America's political process is not pretty, as evidenced by the current 2016 race
Cuba's Castro’s more readily sharing his thoughts on where America is “falling short” will help us improve
He "doesn't disagree" with Castro's view that America should provide "free" health care, education, and social security to all
UPDATE: It appears we've montaged too early. Here are three more criticisms he leveled on his homeland:
