Poor Obama, just can’t seem to make any friends.
America should stay out of Syria.
am believing this is an on the sly invite.
A classic falling out amongst thieves.
I guess he’s not being paid off by the Saudis.
Ms. Pelosi was criticized by President Bush for visiting Damascus at a time when the administration — rightly or wrongly — has frozen high-level contacts with Syria. Mr. Bush said that thanks to the speaker’s freelancing Mr. Assad was getting mixed messages from the United States. Ms. Pelosi responded by pointing out that Republican congressmen had visited Syria without drawing presidential censure. That’s true enough — but those other congressmen didn’t try to introduce a new U.S. diplomatic initiative in the Middle East. “We came in friendship, hope, and determined that the road to Damascus is a road to peace,” Ms. Pelosi grandly declared.
Never mind that that statement is ludicrous: As any diplomat with knowledge of the region could have told Ms. Pelosi, Mr. Assad is a corrupt thug whose overriding priority at the moment is not peace with Israel but heading off U.N. charges that he orchestrated the murder of former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq al-Hariri. The really striking development here is the attempt by a Democratic congressional leader to substitute her own foreign policy for that of a sitting Republican president. Two weeks ago Ms. Pelosi rammed legislation through the House of Representatives that would strip Mr. Bush of his authority as commander in chief to manage troop movements in Iraq. Now she is attempting to introduce a new Middle East policy that directly conflicts with that of the president. We have found much to criticize in Mr. Bush’s military strategy and regional diplomacy. But Ms. Pelosi’s attempt to establish a shadow presidency is not only counterproductive, it is foolish.
PA media blame Obama for the civil war and 9/11.LOL! Hey Barry, how's it feel?
nobody cares what this little murdering terrorist (and thief) thinks about anything
he is a irrelevant diversion
Pelosi is the highest ranking U.S. official to go to Syria since former Secretary of State Colin Powell visited the nation in 2003. Defying the White House’s Middle East policy by meeting with Syrian President Bashar Assad, Pelosi said, “The road to Damascus is a road to peace.”
After meeting for three hours with Assad on Wednesday, the House speaker announced that the Syrian president is “ready to engage in negotiations for peace with Israel.” Assad has repeatedly said over the past year that Damascus is willing to negotiate with Israel as long as talks lead to the return of the Golan Heights, seized by Israel after it was attacked by Syria and six other neighbors in the 1967 Six-Day War.
Shocking officials in Jerusalem, where she had visited two days earlier, Pelosi said she also told Assad that Olmert had wanted to relay the message that Israel is ready for peace talks with Syria.
That came as a surprise to the prime minister, whose office on Wednesday denied any such conversation and said that “what was discussed with the House speaker did not include any change in Israel’s policy, as it has been presented to international parties involved in the matter.”
FRiends, I gotta wonder about all this Syria stuff. Did the merry gang of psychopaths just play us for suckers?
Lemme explain. As we all know their operating philosophy is to “never let a crisis go to waste.” The timing of this is certainly suspicious. Its not like this is the first or last time the Syrians have used this stuff. Probably not the first or last time this year. So why the urgency? Why now?
Could the underlying issue be the upcoming fight over boehnercare? I found it very interesting how the gop wing of the uniparty went into hiding over the Syria issue. Then came out very quickly with their response after the Saturday love-me fest. Gosh. It was almost like it was all ready to go. You don’t think it could have been, well, coordinated do you?
Just six years ago people thought this clown walked on water. We, of course, new all along that he was a liberal bicycle seat sniffer. For a conceited narcissist like Soetoro, it must be killing him..

Syria Denies Using Chemical Weapons
Wow if the PLO is against bombing Arabs then we should definitely not do it. We should always do whatever the PLO says. We should also listen to the Ayatollah and the Kremlin, because they want what’s best for America. Obama was right to listen to them and back off.
