A Picture is Worth 1,000 STFU’s!

Chairman Mao Zedong and President Nixon

The sentiments of many half-wits were echoed by Newt Gingrich on his recent trip to Fordham, when he told us how disgusting and terrible it is that President Obama shook hands with Hugo Chavez. (Really, for those of you who missed it, the fear-mongering cannot be overstated.)

Well Newt, lucky for us some dude put together an amazing photo gallery that shows us (gasp!) that President Obama isn’t the first President to civilly greet controversial world leaders. As the blogger points out:

“…it almost seems like getting to know your adversaries and becoming friendly with them actually acts as a deterrent from them starting wars with you? Go figure! Just like in real life with your neighbors and people you work with!”

The gallery contains pictures of Republican US Presidents cordially greeting everyone from Brezhnev to Gorbachev. Suck on that Newt Gingrich and all of you applauding monkeys who attended the event.
