The right wing is busy this morning condemning Obama for his behavior at a international conference in Trinidad. There was a handshake with a wacko, a gift of a book from the same wacko, and a speech by a second gangster --- one that Reagan did not get rid of despite his best efforts 25 years ago.
How is this Conservative outcry different in any way from the approach the right wing has taken to every other thing Obama has said or done? They haven't found anything he does to be acceptable.
The handshake and the book which a tin-hat dictator gave Obama mean nothing important to any American who has confidence in this country or has enough sense of neighborliness to know that good relations with the folks on the other side of the fence are better than pissing contests.
There is a more serious matter, whether the President should have sat quietly and listened to Daniel Ortega lecture the U.S., and make anti-American statements.
I have tried to find the text of Ortega's speech this morning, but so far it hasn't appeared anywhere online that I can find. So, we will just have to listen to the criticisms of people who also haven't read the statement.
As for me and my home, we shall honor the United States and not worry about Nicaragua's mouthpiece or any blather put out by the devils of Caracas, Havana, and Managua.
Meanwhile, here's another American made depiction of the President, offered to you by his thoughtful, intelligent, loyal opponents.
