Recall how the Democrats undercut Bush’s Syrian policy?


Oh the outrage that GOP members of Congress have written Iran letting them know how our Republic works.  GOP senators called ‘traitors’ over letter to Iran on nuke deal  Let us step back in time and look at how the Democrat savants really undercut Bush as he tried to isolate Syria. The GOP wrote a letter, the Democrats visited Assad.

Kerry,Clinton’s sorry Syrian policy has led to this? August 28, 2013 — bunkerville

During the Bush Administration, the Dems did what they could to undermine his policy in attempting to isolate Syria. From Kerry to Pelosi, they defied him and went waltzing over to meet with their “friend” that they were sure was going to be our go to guy in the Middle East. A butcher with massive amounts of chemical weapons, no mind. What is it with all of these Progressives and their infatuation with dictators?

April 5, 2007:

DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi held talks with Syria’s leader Wednesday despite White House objections, saying she pressed President Bashar Assad over his country’s support for militant groups and passed him a peace message from Israel.

On the March 27, 2011, Clinton insisted, “There’s a different leader in  Syria now. Many of the members of Congress who have gone to  Syria in recent months have said they believe he’s a reformer.” (The Washington  Post gave this remark three Pinocchios. Clinton later backtracked.)  Yet, ABC, NBC and CBS have not reexamined the comments in the wake of the attack  or its accuracy.

On July 27, 2012, National  Review recounted several politicians who have offered hopeful comments  about Assad. Noah Glyn wrote of Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi  and others.

In 2007, Nancy Pelosi, over strong objections from the  State Department, visited Syria, and said, “The road to Damascus is a road to  peace.” Senator John Kerry predicted that “Syria will change as it embraces a  legitimate relationship with the United States.” Read more:  Newsbusters

It wasn’t so long ago that Kerry made repeated pilgrimage to Syria, meeting with Assad five times between 2009 and 2011.

He famously used the adjective “generous” to describe Assad, as the Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens recalled in a column:

On March 16, 2011—the day after the first mass demonstration against the regime—John Kerry said Assad was a man of his word who had been “very generous with me.” He added that under Assad “Syria will move; Syria will change as it embraces a legitimate relationship with the United States.” This is the man who might be our next secretary of state. (DONE)

As Michael Rubin recently wrote in Commentary Magazine, Kerry’s staffers described “their collective cringe when, after a motorcycle ride with Bashar al-Assad, he returned to Washington referring to Bashar as ‘my dear friend.’”

Kerry clearly believed Assad was honest and a force for stability. The National Review quoted a WikiLeaks document which revealed Kerry had told the emir of Qatar in November 2010, “Assad is a man who ‘wants to change’ and that Israel should cede the Golan Heights to the Syrians ‘at some point.’”

The Washington Free Beacon in an article titled “An Affair to Remember: John Kerry Hearts Bashar al-Assad” called Kerry the Syrian dictator’s “highest-ranking apologist in American politics”:

Kerry thwarted efforts during the Bush administration to diplomatically isolate Syria after the administration’s own efforts to engage the regime ended in failure in 2003. Kerry served as the Obama administration’s envoy to Assad, leading a delegation to Syria just days after Obama’s inauguration. H/T:The Blaze

    Correct me if I’m overstating the obvious: If Iran had the capacity, 1,000 times over to send us up to meet their virgins would they not be giving us ultimatums rather than negotiating with us over allowing us to have the capacity to blow them up to kingdom come? A big thank you to those 47 republican senators with balls and piss on the other 53 along with Obieone, Valjar and Kerry.

    The fake outrage over this is actually entertaining. What would Obama call this if the shoe was on the other foot? Why, a phony scandal of course…

    Excellent points. There has always been a double standard and these morons inside the beltway assume (probably with some accuracy) that we the people are just too stupid to distinguish between lying liars and politicians with brain disease.
