Once again, President Obama has missed a chance to put the US with the people of a country rebelling against a corrupt regime.
Remember Iran in 2009? Remember when Iranians took to the streets to protest a corrupt election? President Obama stood silent and watched the regime commit atrocities.
Why didn’t President Obama stand up with the people in the streets of Venezuela? These people are fighting a government that ran a corrupt election, develops its ties with Iran and Cuba. It is also an anti-US regime, from insults for President Bush at the UN to supporting leftist candidates with cash.
So what relationship with Venezuela is President Obama trying to protect? A friendship with a regime that is not friendly to the US? Thugs who’ve used every opportunity to make life difficult for the US?
