Here are two recent comments from an AP article…
“The world economy can no longer tolerate the budgetary deficit and the financial pressures occurring from markets here in the United States, and by the U.S. government.”
“The U.S. government has made a series of mistakes in the past few decades…. The imposition on the U.S. economy of the years of heavy military engagement and involvement around the world … the war in Iraq, for example. These are heavy costs imposed on the U.S. economy.”
These comments could have come from someone the likes of Harry Reid or even Barack Obama.
But no. These comments were made yesterday by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the United Nations.
This very same mad man who seeks to annihilate Israel and cripple the United States is bloviating with rhetoric that sounds too disturbingly close to that of the Democratic leadership.
The US will be successful to the extent that we place the principles of freedom ahead of the pressures of totalitarian governments threats and the Democrat’s demagogy.
John McCain and Sarah Palin are exactly the right people to lead during this time of difficulty!
