State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki lamented the perception that President Obamas foreign policy has been plagued by incoherence and inconsistency, saying that President Obama doesnt give himself enough credit for what hes done around the world.
Lesser minds are having difficulty comprehending the sophisticated nuances of the Presidents world view, Psaki contended. They see the resurgence of al-Qaeda as evidence of failure in the war on terror. What they fail to understand is that if the United States is not perceived as threatening, that it is no longer their enemy, they will have no reason to attack us. And unlike during the Bush Administration, there have been no terrorist attacks on America since President Obama introduced his smile turneth away wrath approach.
Some members of the media found Psakis perspective laughable, however, former Vermont Governor Howard Dean came to her defense. There is no question that there are vast differences between the mental capabilities of different people, Dean said. President Obama is at the pinnacle of the human pyramid. It stands to reason that persons further down would have a hard time trying to figure out his thinking.
As an example of President Obamas superhuman mental accomplishments Dean cited the transformation he has wrought in Libya. For 40 years Gaddafi ruled that land with an iron fist, but with the skilled intervention carried out under President Obamas orders a democratic and peaceful regime has supplanted his tyranny.
According to Dean, the fact that few would be inclined to agree with his assessment only bolsters the case for President Obamas genius. Historically, geniuses have always stood out from the pack. Many have been pilloried and persecuted as President Obama is being pilloried and persecuted for his vision of a better world.
In related news, Secretary of State John Kerry labeled Edward Snowden a coward for refusing to return to the United States where he faces the threat of prosecution for divulging that the US Government spies on its own citizens. I think that a person who has objections to what his Government is doing has an obligation to air these grievances face-to-face like I did as a young naval officer in order to expose the war atrocities being committed by US troops in Vietnam, Kerry said. The Secretarys comparison may be inapt, though. While Kerry may have committed crimes, the Government never sought to try hima circumstance that Kerry attributed to both Nixons cowardice and the irrefutable truth of what I had to say.

If by credit they mean blame, then I agree.
NOW, cut THAT out!
You nailed them......lol
No, what you fail to understand is that the alligator will eat you last.
Obama makes George W. Bush look like a genius.
This is priceless. Thank you for the ping.
Does he really want credit because it looks more like a huge debit to me
“.......President Obamas foreign policy has been plagued by incoherence and inconsistency”........
Who can argue with that? Obozo has made our country the laughing stock of the world with his stupid policies and edicts. He needs to step down before he is dragged out.
I fail to catch the satire in this piece. It is straight out of AP/ABC/MSNBC reporting, word for word. Where’s the satire?
I think you are going to have to change your title to “All the News All the Time”.
Some members of the media found Psakis perspective laughable,
The media continues to cover for the thugs in the White House.
Well done, sir.
Well done, sir.
What foreign policy?
