Contra Robinson and GOPers

Who cares about the photos? Obama's remarks were the real embarrassment.

Eugene Robinson's WaPo criticism about Obama in Trinidad has gotten some attention from the right -- mostly because such criticism is rare. But Robinson was interested in Obama's reaction to Hugo Chavez and Daniel Ortega. I guess Obama was supposed to scowl when Chavez handed him a book whose title he could not even read.

Republican officials were also on TV recently denouncing the grin & grip photos that are all over the newspapers.

I could give a fig. Shake a guy's hand -- who cares? The GOPers are barking up the wrong tree.

Obama's remarks about "stale debates"... and somehow the US has paradoxically managed to be both domineering and disengaged... could you just stop criticizing America, please? I'm getting a complex here.

Uh... Colombia Free Trade, anyone? How engaged are the Democrats on that one? ....Bueller? ...Bueller?

Stop apologizing for America. Stop treating our adversaries better than our friends.

Just stop.
