President Obama wants to reach out to Moderates.

Moderate members of the Taliban that is. Seriously, and I honestly wish I was making this up

The second link goes to the NY Times International Herald and Tribune. I included that so the Liberals couldn't complain that the first link went to Townhall, and that means it's merely right wing propaganda. I included both links to show it's across the spectrum of News Organizations.

Moderate members of the Taliban. Isn't that like trying to deal with Moderate Members of the KKK? Or Moderate Members of the Nazi Party? Isn't that like trying to deal with Moderate Members of any extremist fringe organization? How do you find Moderate Members of an organization like the Taliban? Do you find ones who don't think educated women should be stoned to death for being educated? Do you try and find the ones who think that acid attacks on school girls may be a bit extreme? 

Do you try and find the one guy out of a thousand who thinks that women aren't property? 

Where do you start your definition of Moderate regarding the Taliban? This group is barbaric, inhumane, and frankly more closely resembles governments in history that were banished by the combined efforts of many nations. What kind of Moderate Fascist can you hope to find? 

The Obama Administration explained away their thoughtless behavior concerning the arrival of Prime Minister Gordon Brown of England by telling the English Paper's that they were simply in over their heads right now. Seriously, and if that is the reason they embarrased all of us in the nation, regarding our special friendship, that apparently ended when President Obama was elected, then I have to wonder how much thought they put into this. 

The real views of many in Obama administration were laid bare by a State Department official involved in planning the Brown visit, who reacted with fury when questioned by The Sunday Telegraph about why the event was so low-key.

The official dismissed any notion of the special relationship, saying: "There's nothing special about Britain. You're just the same as the other 190 countries in the world. You shouldn't expect special treatment." The apparent lack of attention to detail by the Obama administration is indicative of what many believe to be Mr Obama's determination to do too much too quickly.

Yeah, nothing special about England, who's always had our back, and we've always backed them since World War One? Nothing special about what could only be considered our longest, and most reliable friend in the world? This from the State Department that couldn't find one single person who could read Russian? Now the Russians are mocking us, and with good reason. 

I wonder if the person who came up with the idea of Moderate Taliban, was the same person who thought that a big red button was a good gift to the Russian Federation. It's probably the same dolt who told England that there is nothing special about our relationship with them. In the mean time, we're trying hard to re-establish ties with the bankrupt nation of Cuba, to normalize relations with them, while we're taking a dump on our friends from around the world. Great move Mr. President. Get your enemies to hate you a little less, but still hate you, while your friends move from like, to dislike. 

Apparently, the Change we could believe in, was letting the amateur hour winners move into the pinnacle of prime time slots. I for one can't believe the number of mistakes that have been made in less than two months, and still counting.
