Obama shuns U.S. friends

The Spokesman-Review

I have been scared and dismayed with everything the Obama administration has done, but recent events take the cake. By turning our backs on Poland and the Czech Republic to please Russia, the Obama administration is ignoring so many lessons of history.

We have a few good friends, and instead of helping our friends the Obama administration is bowing to our enemies. Each day I hear that we’ve embraced another enemy of this country, whether it is Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro, Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Il or murderers and terrorists like Moammar Gadhafy and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Does anyone really think that doing this will help our foreign policy?

We support an aspiring dictator like Manuel Zelaya in Honduras and despise the constitutionally legal government there. The ultimate thing I could not believe was that one adviser said we should shoot down Israeli planes headed for Iran. If we truly turn our back on Israel I fear for our nation.
