On the campaign trail, candidate Obama made a clear statement to support the victims of the Armenian genocide. This policy seemed clear and sensible, and one that our government needed to take.
However, since winning last November, Barack Obama has broken yet another promise, leading some to wonder whether he meant many of his promises, or if they were simply ploys to gain more votes.
Speaking in Istanbul, Turkey, the President continues to make naive statements. He has so far refused to honor the over 1.5 million killed at the end of World War One by the Ottoman Empire. Turns out Hitler was "right" when he asked who remembered the Armenians.
The President needs to man-up and blame the Ottoman government for this genocide. That doesn't mean attacking the sovreign Turkish Republic, but it does mean at least chastising the tyrants who carried this out.
If it's that difficult to look bad over something that happened 90 years ago, how's the President going to stand up in a present crisis? Will he bother getting his shirt ruffled if it causes some Europeans or tyrants to disagree with him.
Please. We need a leader, not a drama queen.
