The utter and complete stupidity of some members of Congress is absolutely unbelievable. It's one thing to consistently trash our President and undermine the war on terror while standing on US soil. It's a whole different ballgame to deliberately seek to undermine our efforts and national security by sitting down for tea with our enemies. There was a story earlier in the week about some Dems having a face to face with members of Hamas. Now we know who one of the ignorant fools was - Sen. Bill Nelson. Now he's finishing up a trip to Syria...
"Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida, a member of the Armed Services and Foreign Relations committees, met with Assad after the State Department said that it disapproved of his trip. The United States has limited diplomatic ties with Syria because of its support of Hezbollah and Hamas, which the U.S. deems terrorist organizations, and President Bush has expressed reluctance to seek help from Damascus on Iraq until the Syrians curb that support and reduce their influence in Lebanon."
"Nelson said he ultimately received logistical support from the State Department in what he called a "fact-finding trip" across the Middle East, being transported by embassy officials from Jordan's capital city of Amman to Damascus. Prior to heading to Damascus, Nelson met with top Israeli and Palestinian officials; in coming days, he plans to visit Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Iraq."
Nelson will have some other Dems and one RINO following in his footsteps...
Also expected to visit Syria is Sens. John Kerry, John Kerry D-Mass., Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., and Arlen Specter, R-Pa.
This trip should bring back some fond memories of ass-kissing the enemy for John Kerry. So what did Nelson have to say after he fraternized with our enemy?
The senator shrugged off suggestions he was challenging Bush's authority by sidestepping administration policy that the U.S. have no contact with Syrian officials. "I have a constitutional role as a member of Congress," Nelson said.
No you raging asshat - you have a Constitutional MANDATE to serve our country - not your terrorist supporting buddies. Your actions have served as fuel to the insurgent fire. You have provided aide and comfort to those that seek to do us harm. You are no different than Jane Fonda - no actually, you are worse since you are an elected representative of MY country. I only wish the President would meet you as you de-plane and give you a swift kick in the ass. Shame on you and those that actually voted for you.
