From the Wall Street Journal:
Latin America knows all too well the dangerous combination of Mr. Kerry’s arrogance and, to be polite, let’s say, naiveté. In 1985, in the midst of the Cold War, he led a congressional delegation to Nicaragua, where he met with Sandinista comandante Daniel Ortega. The Sandinista reputation as a human-rights violator was already well-established, and the Soviets were stalking Central America.
Nevertheless, Mr. Kerry came back from Managua advocating an end to U.S. support for the resistance known as the “Contras.” The House took his advice and voted down a $14 million aid package to them. The next day Mr. Ortega flew to Moscow to get $200 million in support from the Kremlin
That might be true; but I think the author of the article doesn't understand Obama. - Tom
I like the sound of that better ;-)
Obama and Kerry operate in a marxist-socialist mind set. It’s not that they are ignorant of South and Central America, in fact, they are inspired by the rash of marxist-socialist regimes that springs up from Mexico to Argentina. To them, South and Central America are fertile soil to be cultivated.
People in Latin American when given the chance keep voting in socialists. Their standard of living declines, and they vote in more socialists to try to reverse the trend. I don’t think they can understand.
When will we start assigning MALICE as Obama’s motive?
Isn’t it “racist” to suggest his policies are out of ignorance?
He simply continues to surround himself with like minded America haters.
