Yeah that Turkey...lol It is simply amazing to me that we have a President, who is capable, strong and confident enough to engage people on the international stage in this way.
Pres. Obama is simply not your average person, and definitely not the average president we are used to. I think it is great that he is doing this. There is not a doubt in my mind that by reaching out it will help with mend the fences that were torn down during the last 8 years.
Once Pres. Obama proves by getting our troops out of Iraq, closing Gitmo and finalizing the job that should have been done in Afghanistan that was ignored for the last 7 years, maybe we can finally have some real lasting peace. But only by reaching out like he is and smoothing and soothing ruffled feathers.
