All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

Love Thine Enemies

Michael Goodwin of the The New York Post may be asking the most important question of all: Why was President Obama so quick to condemn and desert Hosni Mubarak and so slow to demand similar action on Libya’s Gadhafi and Iran's Ahmadinejad. Obama sided with the protestors quickly when they were opposed to a leader than was an ally and yet dithered and shrank when it came to support the protestors in Libya and Iran, whose dictatorial rulers killed protestors without hesitation or remorse. Our President is one of those people who "bites the hand that feeds him" with relish. He admires our enemies like Iran, Libya, Venuzeula and Cuba. He despises our friends like England, France, and Israel, just to mention a few. Obama has never passed up an opportunity to insult them. One of the first things he did when he became President was return the bust of Winston Churchill to England. At a European economic summit he chose working out in his hotel over an invitation to have dinner with the President of France. Not to mention his abysmal treatment of Benjamin Netanyahu or the Dali Lama. The answer is simple: Obama loves our enemies more than our friends.
