Shaking hands


This is a simple question: Why are Republicans having so much trouble with President Obama shaking hands with the democratically elected president of Venezuela at a chance meeting at the Summit of the Americas?

Because it's only ok if Republicans do it. Otherwise, it's a sniveling point to be bandied about on the libruhl media.

Republicans...if they ain't whining, they ain't breathing.

I know. Nixon was hailed as a hero for that photo, but Obama is attacked. Somebody should send that photo to Bill O’reily because he denied it ever took place.

Thanks. Is that your answer?

Don't fall over, but we agree on this one. The handshake by Obama was no big deal...and the Nixon handshake is a great comparison.

But don't waste time sending anything to O'Reilly. You and I will come to a peaceful understanding long before O'Reilly does anything that amounts to fairness and accuracy.

It is nice to see we can agree on something. That was the highlight of Nixon’s presidency.
