What does it say about Pres Obama? all this wooing of dictators and tyrants? What is the old saying: We are the company we keep?
More importantly what does it mean for the American people? for the preservation of our country and it’s founding principles?
- Suppose Obama succeeds in building friendships with Chavez, Castro, Ahmadinejad and the Taliban. What then? Does America still get to feel that it stands for something? Will we still be the beacon of liberty and freedom to the rest of the world, or will we have sold out in the name of political expediency? And do any of us seriously believe that presidential friendship is going to get a megalomaniac like Hugo Chavez to ease up on the levers of power, or are we just feeding his ego by showing him he can be a tyrant and still have a beer with the president of the United States? Will the Iranians really stop enriching uranium through diplomacy rather than economic sanctions?
Apparently Pres Obama is more concerned about his standing, his appearance, his likability than about the policies of the US. It is becoming more and more apparent that our current President is confused about the difference between him and his office. They are not one and the same.
