Members of the Republican party are very upset because Barack Obama has negotiated with some very, very bad people. Where did this guy get the idea that America should engage in discussions and negotiations with evil leaders? Heck, Representative Ed Royce made clear that when the US negotiates with evil doers, “Iran grows stronger, and we will be weaker to respond.”
1. As I recall, Richard Nixon reached out to Communist China, a nation that had killed over 20,000 American soldiers. Look what happened when Nixon helped China become a great industrial nation!
2. As I recall, St. Ronald Reagan, the great tough president, negotiated nuclear agreements with Russian leader, Mikhail Gorbachev and no Republicans accused him of betraying America, let alone Israel.
3. From the beginning of the Cold War in 1946 until its end in the 1990s, EVERY American president negotiated with Communists who proclaimed their desire to end capitalism!
4. In the real world, not the world of Republicans, nations negotiate with one another.
