Barack Chamberlain Obama (updated)

The funny thing is, I found this photo while looking for one to phtoshop Obama’s face onto Chamberlain’s. Someone had beat me to it already. Great minds, and all that…only I’m not as swift as some.

There is this disturbing meme going around that any criticism of Barack Obama is not to be tolerated, and viewed by some as hypocritical.

One of the favorite things to bring up to try to justify Barack’s desire to sit down with terrorists to negotiate was to bring up President Reagan sitting down with Soviet Permier Gorbachev in December of 1986 on the island nation of Iceland.

This shows an utter lack of knowledge of history…even history that we lived through.

What people are leaving out about the historic sit down was that it took place after Reagan had been President for nearly six years…and had built our military up into a force greater than any in the world.

Reagan had survived an assassination attempt, won a battle with an unruly union conducting an illegal strike, turned the American economy around from the “Carter Flu”, and introduced us to the highly successful supply-side economics. He cut taxes…which served to stimulate the economy. He battled with progressives (called liberal at the time) over the deployment of Pershing nuclear-tipped missiles in Europe in response to Soviet intermediate-range missiles deployed on the Warsaw Pact side of Europe.

President Reagan met with Gorbachev in Iceland from a position, and history of, strength when facing opponents…be they foreign or domestic. Reagan walked out of the summit because Gorbachev insisted on linking SDI to the elimination of missiles in Europe.

What, if any, standing does Barack Obama have to claim that sitting down with Ahmadinejad is comparable to President Reagan sitting down with the Soviet Leader?

Let’s take a look at what Ahmadinejad is engaged in here:

Iran is supplying weapons to terrorists that are killing American soldiers.

Let me repeat that for the slow-witted: Iran is supplying weapons that are killing American soldiers. They are supplying weapons to terrorists. The President of the United States of America does not go (hat in hand) to speak with people who are killing our soldiers.

Barack Obama is a first-term U.S. Senator with no foreign policy experience. He is a light-weight legislator who sat on his hands 130-plus times in the Illinois legislature because he was too terrified of ruining his political career with an unpopular vote.

Even the terrorist group Hamas has endorsed him, FARC loves him.

They see him as the best bet to further their evil agendas. They also view him as a light weight. He has no credibility as a tough negotiator.

They see a possibility that they could get another Jimmy Carter. Someone who will negotiate with North Korea…giving them nuclear weapons capability.

To compare Senator Barack Obama to President Ronald Reagan is to reveal yourself a Glittering Jewel of Colossal Ignorance.

Barack Obama, the Glittering Jewel that he is, just can’t help revealing himself to us. This is an excerpt from The Gateway Pundit:

Barack Obama on Appeasement
May 16, 2008

“The U.S. should find a mechanism whereby the disaffected have an effective outlet for their grievances, which assures them they are getting social services… The U.S. needs a foreign policy that looks at the root causes of problems and dangers. (Obama compared Hezbollah to Hamas.) Both need to be compelled to understand that they’re going down a blind alley with violence that weakens their legitimate claims(?)… If they decide to shift, we’re going to recognize that. That’s an evolution that should be recognized.”

Ok… “legitimate claims?”
Did Obama really say that?

What kind of legitimate claims is Obama talking about?

— The right to Jerusalem?
— The right to never recognize the raping enemy?
— The right to burn the Zionists?

Be sure to read the whole post, then watch the President’s speech again.
