Another Episode of ‘Whadda I tell yah’

Imagine that, as I predicted in a toon on Sunday, heads exploding over the Chavez/Obama handshake;

Buchanan: Barack Obama allowed himself to be disrespected. Now if that’s the way he wants to do it personally, that’s personal. But he’s the President of the United States, and his country was savaged and smeared down there, and he grinned all the way through it.

Yes, Pat, because Bush did such a wonderful job of protecting America’s reputation . . .

and once again, Dick continues to be a Dick.

Cheney: I find disturbing is the extent to which he has gone to Europe, for example, and seemed to apologize profusely in Europe, and then to Mexico, and apologize there, and so forth,” “And I think you have to be very careful. The world outside there, both our friends and our foes, will be quick to take advantage of a situation if they think they’re dealing with a weak president or one who is not going to stand up and aggressively defend America’s interests.

He may be a ‘weak president’ in your eyes, but he is kinda coming off as a leader with humility if you ask me. But we all know you don’t know Dick, Dick.

Just thought I’d mention that Bill O’Reilly, another guy you lefties love to hate, used the words “humble” and “gracefully” last night while describing Obama during the Latin American confab. He did have questions about the effectiveness of Obama’s approach, but hey.

Well maybe the memo drafted by Roger Ailes which included the key phrases for Bill to use never made it to his desk so he was off script for one night.


Actually Bill isn’t always so far right….just most of the time. I don’t like his tactics or his methods, but I do find myself agreeing with his viewpoints quite often.

Not that I would expect a bleeding heart liberal like DL to understand that however. 😉

Oh, I don’t agree with Barry on everything. In fact I can’t figure out why he continues to apologize for the Bush years, who cares, that asshole is gone, move one. But I also don’t think there is anything wrong with us talking to our enemies, just because you are cordial with someone doesn’t mean you agree with them. We know the Bush approach wasn’t exactly working the best. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

There is such a thing as being polite and using good manners. This is what I feel Obama was doing. Snubbing somebody doesn’t make good policy. Ignoring somebody that you don’t like or approve of, just doesn’t work when you are trying to make peace in the world.

Wow… Cheney… man…

He kind of reminds you of the guy that gets REALLY wasted at your party and shits on the floor…
and then gets pissed off at his brother for apologizing on his behalf…
because HE still thinks it was really, really FUNNY!

…sick bastard – he needs to get some help.

“He kind of reminds you of the guy that gets REALLY wasted at your party and shits on the floor…”
