The Demo-Gogues

08-33 Chronicle; PatriotPost.US Yeah, that’s the ticket: “If we had a stronger relationship with Russia, we could exercise strong diplomacy to stop this effort against Georgia. We should immediately go to the United Nations Security Council, condemn Russia’s action, and then get the Security Council to pass a strong resolution getting the Russians to show some restraint.” —New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, a former UN ambassador who should know better **Uh, Bill, Russia has veto power on the UN Security Council.

Obama saves the world: “We should continue to push for a United Nations Security Council resolution calling for an immediate end to the violence. It’s a clear violation of the sovereignty and internationally recognized borders of Georgia.” —Barack Obama  “[Barack Obama’s] goal was to be tough and smart, and so when the [Russian] action happened on Thursday, he immediately called for a ceasefire, condemned the unwarranted use of force by Russia. It was a bad crisis for the world. It required tough words, but also a smart approach to call on the international community to step in—and I’m very, very happy that the senator’s request for a ceasefire has been complied with by [Russian] President [Dmitry] Medvedev.” —Gov. Tim Kaine (D-VA)

Hope is alive: “America is—is no longer, uh, what it—it could be, what it was once was. And I say to myself, ‘I don’t want that future for my children’.” —Barack Obama
