The FIGHT for The RIGHT!

Obama finds that “Words Do Matter”, even when HE says them!

The following is quoted from an article by Charles Krauthamer. It shows how Barabck Obama screwed up and can’t wiggle or liehis way out of this one and IF elected President how he could damage the United States:

“Before the Democratic debate of July 23, Barack Obama had never expounded upon the wisdom of meeting, without precondition, with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Bashar al-Assad, Hugo Chavez, Kim Jong Il or the Castro brothers. But in that debate, he was asked about doing exactly that. Unprepared, he said sure — then got fancy, declaring the Bush administration’s refusal to do so not just “ridiculous” but “a disgrace.”

After that, there was no going back. So he doubled down. What started as a gaffe became policy. By now, it has become doctrine. Yet it remains today what it was on the day he blurted it out: an absurdity.

Should the president ever meet with enemies? Sometimes, but only after minimal American objectives — i.e. preconditions — have been met. The Shanghai communique was largely written long before Richard Nixon ever touched down in China. Yet Obama thinks Nixon to China confirms the wisdom of his willingness to undertake a worldwide freshman-year tyrants tour.

Most of the time you don’t negotiate with enemy leaders because there is nothing to negotiate. Does Obama imagine that North Korea, Iran, Syria, Cuba and Venezuela are insufficiently informed about American requirements for improved relations?

There are always contacts through back channels or intermediaries. Iran, for example, has engaged in five years of talks with our closest European allies and the International Atomic Energy Agency, to say nothing of the hundreds of official U.S. statements outlining exactly what we would give them in return for suspending uranium enrichment.

Obama pretends that while he is for such “engagement,” the cowboy Republicans oppose it. Another absurdity. No one is debating the need for contacts. The debate is over the stupidity of elevating rogue states and their tyrants, easing their isolation and increasing their leverage by granting them unconditional meetings with the president of the world’s superpower.

Obama cited Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman as presidents who met with enemies. Does he know no history? Neither Roosevelt nor Truman ever met with any of the leaders of the Axis powers. Obama must be referring to the pictures he’s seen of Roosevelt and Stalin at Yalta, and Truman and Stalin at Potsdam. Does he not know that at that time Stalin was a wartime ally?

During the subsequent Cold War, Truman never met with Stalin. Nor Mao. Nor Kim Il Sung. Truman was no fool.

Obama cites John Kennedy meeting Nikita Khrushchev as another example of what he wants to emulate. Really? That Vienna summit of a young, inexperienced, untested American president was disastrous, emboldening Khrushchev to push Kennedy on Berlin — and then near fatally in Cuba, leading almost directly to the Cuban missile crisis. Is that the precedent Obama aspires to follow?

A meeting with Ahmadinejad would not just strengthen and vindicate him at home, it would instantly and powerfully ease the mullahs’ isolation, inviting other world leaders to follow. And with that would come a flood of commercial contracts, oil deals, diplomatic agreements — undermining precisely the very sanctions and isolation that Obama says he would employ against Iran. ”

 
I also will add that the screw up in saying what Obama did at the debate (he spoke without thinking or preperation or speech in hand) caused a serious position to be grounded in his campaign that he can’t, although he tried to say he never said it and he stated basically the same thing several other places as well. It proves he does not have the ability to think on his feet, the smarts to ever negotiate (his word) with a terrorist leader and it simply undermines the fact that Mr. Obama has no business being President of the United States of America.
It also shows Obama is NO JOHN F. KENNEDY and certainly no Truman or FDR!

 
Why do Obama’s supporters always go back (Obama does it as well, see the quote above) to the “it’s Bush’s faiult, we have to fix our reputation etc overseas. They have no trouble taking our aid and money so whats to fix?

  4. The fact is that Obama does not know history! He truly is an empty suit.

    Also, he has made more gaffs in this campaign than George Bush has in his 7+ years as President.

    Everyday, we learn more about BO’s lack of knowledge and his lack of understanding of the real world.

    At the very least, BO is an embarrassment–at worst he is a serious threat to the our future. I believe him to be the later!
