Question Of The Week, 8/03/08

Good morning. Oh man it's the third of August, our oldest Great-Grand-Child's second birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Heather! I didn't have any problems coming up with a question this week. Because of an article in my local paper you almost got a question about Internet Addiction. I said almost because a column by Chuck Baldwin won out. In that column Mr. Baldwin says, "It is hard for this writer to laud President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, but in this case, even the socialist Roosevelt showed more integrity than our so-called "conservative" President, George W. Bush. When the 1936 Olympics were held in Berlin, Germany, President Roosevelt refused to attend those ceremonies for fear that his presence would give honor and prestige to the notorious Adolf Hitler. And so it would have. And, by the same token, when President Bush attends the opening ceremonies in China, he is giving honor and prestige to the bloody butchers of Beijing who have persecuted, tortured, and murdered multiplied thousands of the Chinese people since the communist regime took power in 1949." (Continue Reading) This weeks Question Of The Week is. By attending the opening ceremonies is President Bush condoning actions China has taken which many people in the United States and in other parts of the world feel are human rights violations?

I'll post my answer in the Comment Section Tuesday morning.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

I don't think that GWB should be attending. I understand that his attendance may be considered just a matter of protocol, but China is so far outside an egalitarian society and government.

In his own mind, GWB may be supporting the athletes, but the tacit message goes beyond that.

Without a doubt, yes. However, I doubt that someone with Bush's record will provide much (if any) legitimacy or justification to the PRC's actions. I'm more worried about the other world leaders' attendance.

First I want to thank you for stopping by to answer this weeks question. "By attending the opening ceremonies is President Bush condoning actions China has taken which many people in the United States and in other parts of the world feel are human rights violations?" By attending the opening ceremonies I feel that President Bush is telling Chinese leaders that anything they do is OK. Most of us know that China is guilty of many human rights violations. We hear more about some ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiananmen_Square_protests_of_1989 ) but some ( http://hrw.org/english/docs/2008/07/29/china19494.htm ) get past us with little or no news coverage.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

Brother -- it's been way, too long. I hate to just post and say "yeah, what everybody else said", but hey -- YEAH, what everybody ELSE said.

When we've got kids dying in Iraq and Afghanistan and the other troubles we've got at home, it looks VERY bad for the POTUS to be running around on the other side of the world with commies.

Oh, and congrats to you and your family for being able to be together to celebrate the birthday of your young'n :-)

No... Besides... his presence there is just to support the American Athletes. They have their own law. That's why they are also one of the powerful country in the world.
