Well, President Obama bows to the Saudi king, he plays footsy with Castro, and now a high-five and a handshake for Hugo Chavez.
I hear now there is a second encounter today where Chavez presented the president with a book entitled Open Veins of Latin America by Eduardo Galeano, where the author spends over 300 pages expounding on the “horrors” and “injustices” that the western world has plagued on Latin America.
So should we be surprised at our president? No. It was all there to see before the election – from his own statements to those he has chosen as associates and mentors through his relatively few years of adult life. So it really does not surprise me, just sickens me to see it. And the only criticism our president seems to have is criticisms of his own country while bowing and scraping to thugs in other countries.
Before the election there were some facts that should have been made known by the media, but were not. Instead, the MSM played down connections that I believe are important.
