    Before Nixon resigned in disgrace, he was photographed shaking hands with cold war enemy Leonid Brezhnev, the Republicans cheered.
    The Communist fearing GOP watched his handshake with Brezhnev never criticized Gerald Ford.
    His loyal subjects cheered when King Reagan shook hands with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev.
    When Bush Sr. shook the hand of Boris Yeltsin, the praise from his fellow Republicans was endless, and the same goes when Dubya shook the hand of Vladimir Putin. All of these Soviet and Russian leaders had nuclear missiles aimed at this country, but the Republican presidents were commended for their shows of friendship toward the enemy.
    April 2009, President Obama incurs the wrath of the right-wingers for shaking hands with Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez. This Latin American leader has no missiles pointed at this country, and in the past offered low cost heating oil to the poor here in the U.S. His generous offer was refused by then president Dubya, and it is held as a certainty by the GOP that all of the folks that were freezing in their homes were grateful for the protection Dubya gave them from this affordable heating fuel.

    What a dickhead, praising a cheap thug!

    This is why people don't trust the left, you are always fast to make friends with the shit of the world, and excuse it's excesses.

    The hand shake itself was no big deal.

    what was bothersome is that our "leader" just sat there smiling while tin pot dictators like Ortega rant about how tyrannical the US is.

    I have watched you people for years, and I know how a message must be reinforced constantly or you lose your grasp of it.

    You must be very well rested like so many others here, it is apparent that you and those like you slept through the last eight years.

    Did you want Obama to start a big fight over his words at that point? He did the right thing ignoring it. Ortega once again looks like the fool. Nobody believes him.

    So now the "leader" of the US must debase himself because a few insignificant latin American dictators didn't like Bush.

    Puhlease. What is with the ass kissing obsession of you lefty moonbats?
