Obama: I Would Still Meet With Ahmadinejad

Obama: I Would Still Meet With Ahmadinejad cbs news

Despite the controversy that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s visit to New York City has triggered, Senator Barack Obama still vows to meet with rogue leaders if he is elected, reports CBS News' Maria Gavrilovic.

“Nothing has changed with respect to my belief that strong countries and strong presidents talk to their enemies and talk to their adversaries,” Obama told reporters at a press conference after receiving an endorsement from the New York City Correction Officers’ Benevolent Association.

Obama said he would not have invited Ahmadinejad to speak at Columbia University, but he believes in academic freedom. “They have the right to invite people to speak.

As I said, it’s not a choice that I would have made but we don’t need to be fearful of the rantings of somebody like Ahmadinejad.” Obama says the United Nations provides an adequate forum for Ahmadinejad to speak.

Obama was asked if his statements about Ahmadinejad were contradictory – why would he meet with the Iranian leader as U.S. president but not invite to speak if he were the Columbia University president?

“There are two different functions, as president of the United States, my job is to look out for the national security interests of this country,” Obama said. “In the same way that Nixon met with Mao and that past presidents met with people that we don’t like.”

He would! He was raised a muslim.
I would think this would be a detriment to his
running and election.
He talks a good talk, but he can't walk the walk.

I wonder if people realize the only reason Obama got elected is because some liberal judge released the divorce proceedings of Jeri and Jack Ryan which contained personal "sexual" things between the two of them. Both Ryans fought release of their personal information contained in the divorce proceedings but a judge thought better. If it wasn't for that, he'd still be some obscure state legislature in Illinois.

You notice how in the elections that judges ordered the release of Bush's military records but not Kerry's? Same thing as ordering the release of Ryan's divorce proceedings but not Kerry's divorce.

Obama will self-destruct before the primaries. He is way out of his element and Hillary will eat him up. Obama is only in the running because he is a curiosity to some people.

Thats the good news Tom, I think the bad news is Obama will be back like a bad check come the next election.

Lynn, I agree, the fact of his connection to being a Muslim is a HUGE no no for him imo to be in any kind of politics.

Bob wow that is really interesting, I didn't remember that about the Judge and Obama.

And your right about the Judge and Bush and Kerry too.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 26, 2007 12:34 AM

Tom, yes your right, I just wish we could get rid of him from all politics for good.
