Isn't it utterly amazing that this is such an issue?
To begin with, we must ask ourselves why the President is visiting this sexist culture that makes such a big deal over a little handshake with the First Lady? It's not like he groped her.
See what you think:
Where is the liberal outrage at this? Why are feminists supporting a man who extols and praises Muslim theology, which is misogynist by its very nature? I would say, their silence is a very telling thing. It demonstrates a lack of principles, which is one major reason people are sick of leftists and their approach to governance.
The sad thing in all of this is, Indonesia is supposed to be one of the more MODERATE Muslim nations on the planet. All of this money spent to make a show for the world.... and all we have is this moment of hypocrisy to show for this feeble attempt at restoring what they believe to be credibility, and goodwill.
At very least, I hope they get a lousy T-Shirt for their efforts. Meanwhile, we get to pay the bill.
