    Hope & Change Update: Papa Obama administration denies Armenians holocaust or Another campaign promise broken


    BBC:

    The Obama administration has said it will seek to block a controversial bill describing as genocide the World War I killing of Armenians by Turks.

    A congressional panel on Thursday approved the resolution, paving the way for a possible vote by the House

    The resolution - approved by 23 votes to 22 by the committee - calls on President Barack Obama to ensure that US foreign policy reflects an understanding of the "genocide" and to label the killings of Armenians as such.


    During his campaign for the 2008 election, Mr Obama promised to brand the mass killings genocide.

    Mrs Clinton has acknowledged his administration's change of opinion on the issue, saying circumstances had "changed in very significant ways".

    All the problems we have today and people want to bring something up from WWI?

    Look at Iraq. There used to be an estimated 1.4 million Christians in Iraq. Now there are 0.4 million. How come no one cares about that missing "million"?

    I'm not feeling this at all.

    Neither is anyone else except some Armenians. So the question is why the Dums feel the need to press this issue? Second question, why did Obama promise to do this as a candidate but now is backing off? What has changed? The fact that he is president?

    Yet another broken campaign promise by BarryO. How many is this now?

    It was important enough for Papa Obama to promise he would

    If not so important then why not allow the congressional act stand?


    Of course the left brings up slavery to explain issues of today, but this is
    not relevant?

    Funny how that works

    Papa Obama:

    "Two years ago, I criticized the Secretary of State for the firing of U.S. Ambassador to Armenia, John Evans, after he properly used the term 'genocide' to describe Turkey's slaughter of thousands of Armenians starting in 1915. … as President I will recognize the Armenian Genocide."

    Before Obama became president, Turkey wasn't really much of a player. Because Bush was "going it pretty much alone".

    Things change,

    Since that time, Obama has rallied the support of NATO, which Bush mostly lost with is ill advised invasion of Iraq and the lack of WMDs. Obama understands the importance of "allies".

    Of course, instead of looking at what's best for the US, at seeing a president who has been more successful in a year fighting al Qaeda than the previous administration in 8 years - remember, there was NO al Qaeda in Iraq until we let them in, all the right wants to do is whine that Obama broke a campaign promise.

    And who knows, maybe before the end of his term, he might still make such a statement. He's only been in office a year.

    Come on Republicans. You had 8 years. And everything you guys touched turned to shit. You were like "Midas". Give the black guy a chance.

    Too funny


    the best you can come up with all of Papa Obama's failures and broken promises

    is Blame Bush?

    Papa Obama is getting a little "long in the tooth" to keep using this

    But hey, it is your story and you can tell it any way you want
    :eusa_whistle:


    By the way, this is just another Bush policy that Papa Obama is following

    Let me guess- Bush made him do it
    lol
