A Dictator By Any Other Name

So now the right is upset that Obama met with Hugo Chavez and shook his hand (or some such thing). And the left has responded- quite rightly so- that a meeting is just a meeting. If only the left could take it's own advice when it come's to free market economist Milton Friedman's infamous trip to Pinochet's Chile in the 1970's. You can't have things both ways. The left needs to stop being hypocritical (or point out the hypocrisy in their ranks) and the right needs to get over this nonsense about world leaders. Years of ignoring Castro in Cuba did us no good and I seem to remember FDR meeting with Stalin. Get over it.
