Romney gaffs were more interesting to the liberal press than they were to anybody else. As far as his comments about the UK Olympics... so what? Cameron said something more insulting than Romney did. Utah.. the middle of nowhere? That's the Northwest corner of nowhere thank you very much
As far as his comments about the Israeli culture making a decent country. Uh? So?
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that "anyone who loves freedom and justice must strive for the annihilation of the Zionist regime in order to pave the way for world justice and freedom."
Now that's some pretty fucked up culture. It's not a wonder when you buy bullshit like that, you have a rough time.
OMG! He said something that you could interpret not to be politically correct if you twist it that way. His aid told a reporter to kiss his ass when she was being obnoxious. I'm not having a problem with this.
As far as Obama goes. I can't blame him for giving the Syrians some humanitarian aid or for providing a little logistical support to the rebels. They are up against WMD's, so we ought to be at least keeping an eye on what's going on.
It's probably more for our own intelligence gathering than any real wish to get involved or "destabilize" anything.
Bad guys, maybe even worse than Qaddafi, might end up in charge of Syria or Libya. We'll at least know em'.
Our involvement here is kind of a no brainer. Any President would be doing about the same thing.
Eventually, it wouldn't surprise me if the regime routed the rebels, and we wouldn't do much about it. The EU might. Probably not. Shades of East Timor.
