PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad Defending his brand of world politics, President Barack Obama said Sunday that he "strengthens our hand" by reaching out to enemies of the United States and making sure that the nation is a leader, not a lecturer, of democracy.
Obama's foreign doctrine emerged across his four-day trip to Latin America, his first extended venture to a region of the world where resentment of U.S. power still lingers. He got a smile, handshakes and even a gift from incendiary leftist leader Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, and embraced overtures of new relations from isolated Cuban President Raul Castro.

Oh boy. Our enemies must be licking their chops. We’d all better run for cover, cause this ain’t gonna turn out pretty.
The leaders of countries who have been our allies for years don’t think much of the Obamination. The dictators around the world embrace him and he embraces them.
Pretty d*mn telling.
I don’t know about enemy of the state but he is certainly an enemy of America, Americans and our Republic.
Neville Chamberlin said reaching out to enemies strengthened the UK. pfft.
What an idiot! LOL!
They have zero problem lecturing the people that pay the freight for this country, however.
No, you pompous ass hole communist, it only empowers them. Let’s them see you as the weak on defense ass hole you are. THIS SOB WILL NEVER, NEVER BE MY PRESIDENT. I refuse to call him president. He is comrade, communist, premier, ass hole, but never will I call him president! AND FOR LURKING GOVERNMENT HACK OFFICIALS: It’s not his race!!! ITS HIS POLITICS OF COMMUNISM I AM AGAINST!!!!
He probably sat down with chavez and offered him thick turkish coffee and told him how great he was (old arab negotiating ploy.) Undoubtably, they were best friends for life shortly after.
Every handshake makes a new friend.
God this guy’s an imbecile
And slapping American conservatives at every opportunity does exactly what for us?
Oh come on ... tell us what you really think ...
I wonder if anyone told him how well this turned out for Carter?
Yeah, sure, whatever. Iran just told you they would cut off any outstretched hand and called you weak. The world’s countries are lining up to call you and us weak.
Well said! Great post!
The American Chamberlain.
Yep, I think the pictures are great but the caption is off target. Barry O is the greatest friend “The State” ever had.
Don’t hold back, tell us what you REALLY think.
Just kidding, and I agree 100%.
