Handshakes & Talk VS Fists. Hmmm...A Tough One
This morning on The Today Show we were treated to the news that conservatives/republicans were upset that Obama shook hands with Venezuela dictator Hugo Chavez. Newt Gingrich was asked for his two cents although I can't imagine why anyone would want to hear anything that loser has to say. Nevertheless, there he was criticizing first Obama's meeting with Chavez and then Obama's whole approach to foreign policy. Gee...he may have a point. We certainly wouldn't want to undo the fine body of work and good relations the previous administration left us, would we? After all, what possible good could come from actually sitting down to listen and talk to those leaders who dislike us? Isn't it much better in the long run to show them the business end of an M16? That would certainly convince them to listen to what we have to say, wouldn't it? For proof just look at how well that worked for W! At the end of the day it's not going to matter what Obama does. What ever it is, republican gas bags are going to come out against it. Therein lies their hypocrisy regarding 'nonpartisan' politics! Fortunately, the majority of the nation recognizes the need for Obama to do exactly what he's doing. Stay calm & carry on!
