TheDC Exclusive: Rep. Kucinich praises Syrian dictator on Syrian television [VIDEO]
Daily Caller ^

Posted on 06/30/2011 12:28:52 PM PDT by nuconvert

Despite Ohio Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich saying a Syrian media report “mischaracterized” a press conference he gave while on a “fact-finding” trip to Syria, video footage of an interview he gave on Syrian television while in Syria clearly shows Kucinich being deferential to and even laudatory of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

In an exclusive video obtained by The Daily Caller, Kucinich openly praises Assad, whose regime has reportedly killed over 1,300 demonstrators and injured many more since protests against the dictatorship began earlier this year. (Report says Kucinich praised Syrian dictator, congressman says statement ‘mischaracterized’)

“What I learned from my meeting with President Assad is that he does care about what’s happening, that he wants to respond, that he’s thinking about the different ways that would be the best way to address the needs of the people,” Kucinich said in the interview, video of which was provided to TheDC by The Middle East Media Research Institute. “And that’s what he’s talking about. He’s talking about the people. He’s very engaged in that kind of a discussion. And frankly, that’s a positive development."

This admin is now friendly with the Muslim Brotherhood and put Israel on the terror supporting nations list.

The Leftist-Islam Alliance seems pretty real to me.

Is Kucinich aware of Syria’s recent public castration and killing of a 13 year old, Syrian child?

Kucinich can kiss Assad’s ass if he stands on tippy-toe.

I’m sure he thinks Assad has had nothing to do with any of the One Thousand or more protsters killed, gunned down in the streets, by helicopter gunships, beaten to death, thousands arrested & tortured and others burned out of their homes

Yeah, I mean it’s his brother’s fault! I’m sure Assad has no power what so ever to stop his brother Bashir from hurting his people, but he wishes he did! /sarc

He’s only thinking of the best ways to address the needs of the people. Apparently, the people need to whipped up into an orgy of self-destructive and annaihilative hate-mongering.

Sounds like BS to me.

I am aware of the burning of Christian churches the Islamists are perpetrating and their murder of Christians.

Kucinich is also leading the charge to stop bombing socialist Libya and save the islamofascist Kadaffy regime.

Unfortunately some cino "kucinich konservatives" seem to think the way to beat Obama is to get to his left on national defense.
