Amazing how the enemies of this country always seem to know who they like and how odd that it always seems to be a Democrat.

SO IF YOU VOTE FOR HILLARY OR OBAMMA YOUR UNAMERICAN? FOOLS!
 
2008-03-26 09:30:08 PM  
What does Obama think he could accomplish meeting with someone like Chavez?

Chavez would just use him as a PR opportunity to tighten his grip on his own people.

How is Venezuela our 'enemy'? They are one of our biggest trade partners.

You must have. Obama is looking forward to reaching out to the Honorable Mr. Chavez.

C'mon Shagg, you're brighter than that.
 
2008-03-26 09:34:07 PM  
Perhaps it has to do with the current Republican administration having no interest in discussing anything with nations that don't fall in line with their current policies?

And yeah, Chavez is a blowhard.

Go easy on him, Venezula put him in a microwave for twenty seconds when he was a baby.

You'd hold a grudge too.

I'm imagining him searching teh intarwebz trying to find some anti-US action. It might be a while.

So...Iraq's Al Maliki sucked up to Ahmadinejad a couple weeks ago. Does that make Iraq our enemy?

"The Beard" affects your life how?

Is this our compulsory two-minutes hate for Chavez?

Isn't it funny...Both of our biggest 'enemies' (Cuba and Iran) are only our enemies because the people revolted against the fascist dictators we installed. We hate them for their freedom.

Yes it is, along with the usual apologia for despots from the left.

eastbaywatch: despots

I love how duly elected presidents in other countries are 'despots' if they aren't pro-US, while evil dictators who seize power in other countries are 'friends in the War on Terror'. You don't even realize your own hypocrisy, do you?
 
2008-03-26 09:55:46 PM  
Shaggy_C: Isn't it funny...

The left LOVED the Soviets in the 50's, the Viet Cong and Khmer Rouge in the 60's, Fidel and the Black Panthers in the 70's, the Sandanistas in the 80's and the Serbs in the 90's, so no, it's not funny but expected that they love Islamist fanatics and Hugo Chavez today.

eastbaywatch: spamdog: Is this our compulsory two-minutes hate for Chavez?

Yes it is, along with the usual apologia for despots from the left.


And you hate him more than an African right-wing dictator why? Because the echo-chamber tells you to? Oh, by the way, Chavez is democratically elected. We don't HAVE to spread our democracy there.
 
2008-03-26 09:56:59 PM  
eastbaywatch: Yes it is, along with the usual apologia for despots from the left.

And, of course, the mandatory accusations of liberal love for Chavez.

You and Chavez can both suck it. From opposite ends of the political spectrum.

/or are you one of those 'independents'?

The_Sponge: Sucking up to Fidel Castro doesn't exactly make you our friend, either.


So does that mean the rest of the world, who have no real restrictions on trade with Cuba, are our enemies as well? Flappy headed Canadians? The real irony is if we opened trade with Cuba 20-30 years ago, the Castro government would have fallen a long time ago. History has proven time and time again, isolation only strengthens non-democratic governments.

Ok, 7/10, no 8/10 since you pulled me in on a previous comment. Nice work.

You're not going to get anywhere using tired cliches like "The Left," eastbaywatch. But I think I told you that about a year ago, so I didn't really expect any improvement.

Things that should make you pause and think. You can dismiss these endorsements and things all you want but you have to stop and ask yourself what is that these nut jobs and crazies find so attractive about your candidate and party and why do you share the same interest ?
This applies to all parties and candidates.
What is about Ron Paul that Storm front finds so appealing?
What is about Democrats and the Clintons in particular that the Chinese find so attractive? (First Chung and Trie then failing to learn from the first time Norman Hsu).
To find myself on the same side of a political issue as Hugo Chavez would have to be disconcerting at the least as would an endorsement by trial lawyers, NEA or the AARP of a candidate I am supporting.

I hear you. The AARP should be labeled a terrorist group. Evil old bastards.

I also like how the freeper mindset says these guys are disingenuous in everything they say and do, except when they try and associate themselves with politicians they disagree with. It's the ultimate unbeatable argument, he's lying when it's not favorable to me, but when it is, he must me on to something.

That's funny. I always learned it was Kennedy (A LEFTIST!) who had the bay of pigs and the cuban missile crisis to show his toughness on soviets and Fidel, Johnson (A LEFTIST!) who took us to war in Vietnam against the VC (which that manly man Nixon pulled us out of)...And you're right about the Sandinistas; the Dems are pussies for not breaking the law to fund them with weapon sales to even worse enemies of the US, the Iranians. And didn't Clinton (A LEFTIST!) bomb the serbs in the late 90s while Bush was whining about an 'exit strategy'? Go fark yourself, nitwit.

You realize that America's piss-poor relations with Castro are your own fault right? You can't even say that it was because he sided with the Soviets, because he only went to them after the US told him to FOAD.

Maybe because they look at things from the point of view of an independent country instead of our own internal policies? They want the US to be a good leader for the world, not an evil bunch of bastards dropping bombs for oil whenever it's convenient.

That's a pretty strained definition of leftist you have there.
 
2008-03-26 10:14:32 PM  
I mean, really, do you think Chavez gives two shiats about us having 'socialized healthcare' or repealing Bush's deficit tax scheme? I think most foreign leaders prefer to worry about their own countries instead of unecessary threats from abroad.

You may have a long wait. Remember, Cuba is in the Caribbean...the place that invented voodoo zombies......Fidel may already be dead.....

So, if Democrats are not leftist, praytell, what is this mysterious 'leftist' boogeyman that exists out there looking to undermine America?
