There is increasing evidence that the lunatics have fled the asylum and wound up as members of the Republican group seeking the presidency. Herman Cain told America “I would have a policy that we do not negotiate with terrorists” and expressed disagreement with the Israel decision to exchange prisoners for their captured solider. CNN Anderson Cooper pointed out to Cain that earlier when asked if he would authorize an exchange to save an American prisoner held by al-Qaeeda, he said: “I could see myself authorizing that transfer.” Cain denied ever saying what he said.
Michele Bachmann jumped into the fray insisting there could never be any exchange of prisoners, but it was noted that Ronald Reagan had exchanged arms for American hostages in Iran. Oh, it was different when negotiating with a terrorist country than when negotiating with terrorists. Rick Santorum differentiated between Iran as a country as compared to sending terrorists from Guantanamo prison. But, Ron Paul emphasized, “they’re all suspects, they’re not terrorists. You haven’t convicted them of anything.”
It went on and on with Bachmann insisting that Israeli is our friend and sided with Arabs who overthrew the Mubarak dictatorship and thus hurt Israel. Let me allow Herman Cain to sum up a Republican discussion of foreign aid: “If we clarify who our friends are, clarify who our enemies are, and stop giving money to our enemies, then we ought to continue to give money to our friends.”
Does anyone know what these idiots are talking about? When did we give money to “our enemies?”
