Report: Obama to reestablish diplomatic ties with Evil Clown “in the coming days”

posted at 9:24 pm on June 24, 2009 by Allahpundit

Well, why not. There’s an opening for a repressive Jew-hating dictatorship on our July 4th barbecue guest list and it’d be a shame to see all those extra hot dogs to go to waste.

The two nations expelled each other’s envoys last September in a dispute involving allegations by Bolivia, a close ally of Venezuela, that Washington was meddling in its internal affairs.

The normalisation of diplomatic ties “will take place in the coming days, and as soon as the ambassadors have resumed their functions we will move forward to a more fluid communication,” Nicolas Maduro, the Venezuelan foreign minister, said on Wednesday.

Ian Kelly, a US state department spokesman, said it was unclear when an ambassador would return to Caracas or who it would be.

We’ll be sending an ambassador to Syria soon, too. With all that’s going down in Tehran, this may seem like a curious moment to hold “hug an evil douchebag” week, but there is a method to Obama’s madness. Syria and Venezuela are, of course, chief allies of Iran; peeling them away with a charm offensive is designed to further isolate the regime (and could help seriously weaken it in Lebanon), although why that would discourage them from building nukes rather than spur them on to an even greater paranoid nuclear frenzy isn’t clear to me. You see where this is headed, though. There’ll be a nice thaw between the U.S. and these megalomaniacs for a few months or years, then Chavez will order a pogrom or do something similarly vicious and nutty and we’ll be treated to the same excruciating spectacle of disapproving Obama half-measures that we’ve seen this week. “Grave concern,” “this is not the dictator I thought I knew,” the whole nine yards. Can’t wait. Oh, and if you think I’m exaggerating about Chavez ordering a pogrom, think again. As the photos at the link demonstrate, the writing’s on the wall in Venezuela. Literally.

The photos in that link are very disturbing. Obama has been making very dangerous overtures with ruthless tyrants and anti-Semites.

Naw, I think he craves friendship with all three evil douche bags and was forced into condemning iranian evil douchebaggery by the MSM juggernaut

Obama is probably sad his barbecue invite fell through.

Maybe he is trying to get back in with Iran by schmoozing its buddies

I smell sulfur

Wake me up from this nightmare.

Wake up, wake up…it’s 1983 and we have a real President, that the world fears, running things. Thank God the last 26 years has been only a bad dream.

Why is Obama inviting evil people, enemies of this nation and freedom-loving people everywhere, to be our “friends”? If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck…

From the Pogrom link: Photos provided to NewMajority show graffiti that includes a crossed out Star of David, swastikas, a hammer and sickle, pro-Palestinian rhetoric, and repeated references to Jews as fascists.

Wait! Venezuelan Marxists are Jew haters too? Who knew.

Short List for Obligatory Jew-hater at BBQ:

Rev. Wright
Ahmadinejad
Hugo Chavez

Yay, he’s giving another stab at weenie diplomacy!

This empty suit is a total POS. He’s a bag ‘o’ $h!t. He’s a complete disgrace. He needs to go….

That linked story made me almost physically ill, as a descendant of Jews who fled pogroms in Poland. There had better be some SERIOUS protests from the American Jewish community over restoring relations with this Jew-hating regime.

Or, just to keep Iran happy, by being BFF with their allies.

Love that soul bruvah handshake.

this should come as no surprise to those who opposed his election. buyers remorse to those who didn’t.

I wonder if Winnie the Pooh will be at the weenie diplomacy picnics.

Please, always remember:

Obama’s presumptive National Security Advisor gave us reason to pause today as he declared that “Winnie the Pooh seems to me to be a fundamental text on national security.”

Now, Obama’s foreign policy moves make sense. We were warned.
