Despite the controversy that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s visit to New York City has triggered, Senator Barack Obama still vows to meet with rogue leaders if he is elected, reports CBS News' Maria Gavrilovic.
“Nothing has changed with respect to my belief that strong countries and strong presidents talk to their enemies and talk to their adversaries,” Obama told reporters at a press conference after receiving an endorsement from the New York City Correction Officers’ Benevolent Association.
Obama said he would not have invited Ahmadinejad to speak at Columbia University, but he believes in academic freedom. “They have the right to invite people to speak. As I said, it’s not a choice that I would have made but we don’t need to be fearful of the rantings of somebody like Ahmadinejad.” Obama says the United Nations provides an adequate forum for Ahmadinejad to speak.
Obama was asked if his statements about Ahmadinejad were contradictory – why would he meet with the Iranian leader as U.S. president but not invite to speak if he were the Columbia University president? “There are two different functions, as president of the United States, my job is to look out for the national security interests of this country,” Obama said. “In the same way that Nixon met with Mao and that past presidents met with people that we don’t like.”
we dont need to be fearful of the rantings of somebody like Ahmadinejad.
yes we do, if Obamanable is elected
Nothing has changed with respect to my belief that strong countries and strong presidents talk to their enemies and talk to their adversaries,
I do not agree with the democRAT to say the least, but one thing i do admire about obama is his speeches
I was wondering when Obama's hypocrisy was going to enter the forum.
The empty suit insults General Petraus but he’s going to dialaogue with the short psychopath from Iran.
He reminds me of the Bears disaster as quarterback Ron Grossman. The coaches talk him up but the guy just stinks, no good. Grossman’s Q.B. rating this week is 27.
On the candidates Q.B. scale Osama Obama should be a 5 of
100 possible points.
Time to move away from this light weight.
Obama: I Would Still Meet With Ahmadinejad [Barf Alert]....
b.hussein ~ one muzzie meeting with another!!!
What is there to say?
Obama is a complete tool
I believe that everyday this guy proves that he is nothing more than a dupe to make the Hildabeast look more centrist
Obama is burying himself.
Barak Hussein who?
Said Neville Chamberlain, “If we can just meet with Heir Hitler and allow him to put his greviences down with pencil a paper, then I believe we can avoid war.”
Chamberlain met with Hitler, who fell prostrate on the floor before him ranting and screaming....Chamberlian got Hitler to sign a silly piece of paper, came back to England and delcared “Peace in our time.”
Every generation has its’ liberal fools....Obama is one of many in our time.
