Can You Spell H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-T-E ?

The shrub's latest attempt to show that he actually knows something about foreign policy reveals once again the fantasyland he has been living in for seven years. Barack Obama has promised to actually sit down and talk to leaders of countries that the shrub has done nothing but threaten or ignore. What a concept, diplomacy by talking instead of shouting or shooting. But the shrub responded, "It will send the wrong message. ... It will give great status to those who have suppressed human rights and human dignity." He obviously doesn't realize that nothing suppresses human rights and human dignity like an ill-conceived, ill-planned, ill-managed and probably ill-egal war. It makes you wonder what kind of insulation his handlers keep him wrapped up in.

What Bu-Hu doesn't know is that in the outside world, these leaders gain more status for standing up to him and taunting him than they would if he treated them as mere mortals and talked to them.

If nothing else, Obama has a sense of culture outside Texas and red-neck and can see us as others see us.

Yeah, it really is a shame that when they staffed the white house they didn't bother to get someone who knew anything about the rest of the world. Famous last words, "We never did it that way in Crawford."
