bush isnt half the leader reagan was. we all remember how reagan met with the russians against all his advisors advice and hammered out an agreement that changed the world. reagan was not afraid to meet with anybody because he believed he could find common ground. "trust but verify". contrast that with the idiot we have in the white house now that will not meet with the leader of another country even though he will be in the same building at the same time. who knows. maybe a meeting like this could head off a war saving many lives. http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3304369,00.html WASHINGTON - US President George W. Bush declared Friday that he has no intention of meeting with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad during his visit to the United Nations headquarters in New York next week.
