So while President Obama was in Asia, he spoke of visiting Hiroshima and Nagasaki — something no sitting U.S. president has ever done. The reason they haven't? Because it could be seen as criticism of a decision that ended the bloodiest war in history.

Here's how he answered one reporter's question:


PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Now obviously Japan has unique perspective on the issue of nuclear weapons as a consequence of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. And that, I'm sure, helps to motivate the prime minister's deep interest in this issue. I certainly would be honored, it would be meaningful for me to visit those two cities in the future. I don't have immediate travel plans but it's something that would be meaningful to me.


Hey, as long as it's meaningful to you.

Now, I don't mind if Obama wants to go and it's probably presumptuous of me to criticize him for what he might say there, since he hasn't gone yet. But if I didn't, then I wouldn't have a Greg-alogue and that's not fair to me or to those delightful unicorn voices in my head.

And besides, I can pretty much go by what I've seen of Obama already. Fact is, whenever he's overseas, he tends to translate American success into past arrogance. Plus, I don't think he'll go to Hiroshima and say, "We did it to save lives," because that undermines his whole point about nuclear weapons being evil.

Look at the fall of the Berlin Wall: The most important positive event in our lifetimes, unleashing a march of countries toward freedom. Obama didn't even go to that anniversary. Instead, he offered a video — the kind of thing Britney Spears does when she can't accept the trophy for best UTI at the MTV Awards.

Still, Obama's speech was all right; he championed freedom and stuff. But then, he had to go there:


OBAMA: Few would have foreseen on that day that a united Germany would be led by a woman from Brandenburg or that their American ally would be led by a man of African descent. But human destiny is what human beings make of it.


So, no mention of Reagan or Thatcher, yet he brings up himself? Why is it always about him?

Maybe staying home isn't so bad.

And if you disagree with me, you're probably a racist.
