Foreign policy by BDS

| April 27, 2008


Earlier this month, we had Jimmy Carter in the Middle East conducting our foreign policy without anyone asking him to do so. He did his best to undermine the country’s standing in the world and accomplished nothing. Last year, Nancy Pelosi and a score of Democrat congress members did the same with Syria. Right before the Israelis bombed a nuclear facility Syria was building with another irrational member of the world community, North Korea. Carter and Pelosi both carried false messages (USAToday link);

She said she brought a message to Assad from Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert that Israel was ready for peace talks with Syria. Assad gave assurances that “he’s ready to engage in negotiations for peace with Israel,” Pelosi said. She later left Syria, heading for Saudi Arabia, the next leg of a Mideast tour.

Carter falsely reported (Associated Press link);

Former President Jimmy Carter said today that Hamas — the Islamic militant group that has called for the destruction of Israel — is prepared to accept the right of the Jewish state to “live as a neighbor next door in peace.”

Today we are treated to Bill Richardson, governor of New Mexico conducting his own foreign policy with Hugo Chavez; USAToday link);

New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson told The Associated Press in a telephone interview that he plans to put forward a proposal for the release of the three U.S. defense contractors in the coming weeks and that Chavez is willing to work with him as a “primary mediator.”

The Democratic governor met with Chavez on Saturday night to discuss the issue. The president did not release any statements following the meeting.


Richardson, a former U.S. presidential candidate and energy secretary, said he was visiting Venezuela not as an official envoy but at the request of the hostages’ families.

So what is it with Democrats? Are they so steeped in their hatred for this country that they want to undermine our foreign policy at every turn? Are they convinced that they’ll win elections by pandering to our enemies? If a Republican had done the same to a Democrat administration, they’d holler to high heaven.

The Constitution charges the President as our sole head of state, and rested the faith of the people in his agents to conduct our foreign policy. But, Democrats have on countless occasions shown what they care about the Constitution. John Kerry tried to conduct his own foreign policy with North Vietnam, as a Navy officer, and a decade later with the communist regime in Nicaragua as a Senator with Tom Harkin.

Jim McDermott and David Bonior tried to undermine US foreign policy in Iraq months before our attack on Hussein, and was possibly financed by Hussein. Their trip may have influenced Hussein to remain in power despite offers from the US to step down and caused the whole military operation.

If Democrats really were concerned about our foreign policy, they’d get out of the way and wait for their own turn at bat instead of conducting their own foreign policy based on Bush Derangement Syndrome.
