Dennis Kucinich went abroad to strengthen his foreign policy credentials in pursuit of his presidential ambitions. First stop, Syria, where Gazoo praised the chinless opthamologist, Bashar Assad, and got his digs in at President Bush and United States foreign policy.
US Democratic presidential hopeful Dennis Kucinich, on a Mideast visit that included a stop in Syria, said the country lambasted by the Bush administration deserves credit for taking in more than a million Iraqi refugees.
Kucinich, a strong anti-war opponent who trails far in the US presidential polls, also said he won't visit Iraq on his trip to the region because he considers the US military deployment there illegal.
"I feel the United States is engaging in an illegal occupation ... I don't want to bless that occupation with my presence," he said in an interview in Lebanon, after visiting Syria. "I will not do it."
I wish Gazoo wouldn't bless the United States with his presence in the House of Representatives.
Kucinich, who accused the Bush administration of policies that have destabilized the Mideast, met with Syrian President Bashar Assad during his visit to Damascus. He said Assad was receptive to his ideas of "strength through peace."
I bet Assad was receptive. He and several other countries in the world, Iran chief among them, would love to know there was a United States President who would eschew all military force in the pursuit of "peace" - at any cost.
He also praised Syria for taking in Iraqi refugees.Well, that's the least Assad could do after allowing terrorists to muster in Syria and slip into Iraq, contributing to the chaos and mayhem that compels Iraqis to flee.
Like too many liberal whacko politicians, Kucinich bolsters his foreign policy credentials by running to a country that is a terrorist sponsor, a proxy of Iran, an enemy of Israel and kisses Assad's butt and bashes the United States.
The only thing Gazoo has going for him:
Elizabeth Kucinich. She's three decades younger than Kucinich. Have you read anywhere of her being a trophy wife? Didn't think so.
