McCain: Dalai Lama Responsible for Mao’s Rise


He might as well be, anyway… McCain is actually blaming the Clinton administration for the current North Korea situation. Which is like blaming the Dalai Lama for Mao’s rise to power.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/10/10/AR2006101000862.html

Clinton made an agreement with North Korea. North Korea didn’t live up to its end of the bargain. Therefore, the deal was bad. But it certainly doesn’t mean that Clinton is to blame. Are the people who invested in Enron to blame because they didn’t know Enron was inventing money? Of course not.

Honestly, blaming Clinton for North Korea is like holding McCain responsible for the fact that he was a POW at one time. It’s not your fault, John! You’re the victim. So was Clinton. So was the Dalai Lama.

  1. You think maybe McCain was molested as a child and has crafted denial into an art form?

    It’s said that what you hate about other people is the thing you hate most about yourself. How about the dissolution of his first marriage? How’d that go? I don’t think McCain should even be considered a politician after a joke like this: “Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly? Because her father is Janet Reno” (http://www.azcentral.com/news/election/special3/articles/mccain_enigma-CR.html)

  2. Sieg's Daddy says:

    In the linked article McCain blames the Clinton administration for having a “carrot-based approach” to North Korea, lacking “sticks”.

    As mentioned in this week’s Newsweek magazine (though I can’t find the quote on their website), stick-based approaches only work when the object is a policy change, not regime-change. When the object –express or not– is regime-change, then said regime will resist any such sticks with all that it has.
