As for myself and for the Secretary of State and others involved, including those in the Legislature, we stand ready to do anything, to meet with anyone, anywhere, as long as we may do so in self-respect, demanding the respect due this Nation, and there is any slightest idea or chance of furthering this great cause of peace.”

    More wisdom LOST on the current crop of buffoons we call “leaders”.

    • Our former leaders were leaders from the front, and not afraid of the flak, This idjit leads from the rear, and shuns all responsibility. WOW~!
      Thanks, Clyde.

    Actually, you guys are selling the big eared, tan-colored weasel short. He would say those words without any hesitation if it helped him achieve his goal. He wouldn’t mean the words, but actually meaning what he said hasn’t stopped him yet.
