In about 30 seconds of President O’Bama’s post summit press conference I found contradictions in his statements.
When questioned about how it may look politicially that he was “cozying” up to Marxist Venezuelan leader, Hugo Chavez, Obama stated he doesn’t care about the politics. He further reaffirmed his “there is no harm in talking to any country” mantra, even if that country is overtly hostile to the U.S.
Then he was asked about the U.S. boycotting the International Conference on Racism. The U.S. is apparently boycotting the conference because of the many Arab nations which want to define Zionism as racism.
Obama doesn’t care about politics? The reason this conference is being boycotted is because to attend such a conference will anger the Jewish American electorate, and Israel. This begs questions to Obama such as, “What happened to the “no harm in talking countries we disagree with” mantra? What happened to not caring about politics?
Why aren’t these “Obama Doctrines” being applied to our attendance or boycotting of the Conference on Racism?
These were rhetorical questions of course. The answer is that this president cares almost exclusively about politics and will do, and say, whatever is politically expedient at the time.
