Pitts in Syria before Pelosi
Posted by nytexan on April 4, 2007
It seems that U.S. Rep. Joe Pitts and two other Republican congressmen met with Syrian President Bassar Assad (Lancaster Online) before Pelosi ever left Washington. I wonder how that slipped Bush’s mind when he was blasting Pelosi publicly about going to Syria.
Bush seems to be afflicted with a condition that never allows him to tell the truth or give a complete story. It seems to me that the more Bush tries to shine a negative light on anything the Democrats do, the more things backfire on him.
I see no problem with Pelosi or anyone else going to Syria to try an open constructive dialogue. The whole idea of talking to non allies is to understand them and to be able to find common ground for progress. A concept lost on our fearless leader. As we all know, Bush will only talk to his friends. He must have very few conversations.
I’m sure the rest of the World is just as sick of Bush stamping his foot and expecting to always get his way, as many of us are.
It would be interesting to see if the major media outlets cover this. Lancaster Online posted the article on April 3, 2007.
