Skip to comments.The Insiders: Promote Vice President Biden to foreign policy czar.
Posted on 06/17/2014 10:37:28 AM PDT by Citizen Zed
Here is a big idea: President Obama should abdicate his foreign policy responsibilities. I propose that Obama make Vice President Joe Biden the U.S. foreign policy czar, adding the title and role of secretary of state to his portfolio. Look, Ive never been a big Biden fan and Im sure we disagree on just about everything. But the United States is facing multiple crises, and the president is no longer credible on any issue, in any region of the world.
The president does not have any solid relationships with other world leaders to rely on, he is no longer even expected to provide leadership among our allies and he does not seem to grasp the magnitude of the challenges that the United States is facing. At least Biden is well-liked among foreign leaders, they find that meeting with him is useful and Bidens staff and alumni are respected in Washington and internationally. Also, the vice president has the personal energy and people skills that are important to successful diplomacy.

LOLOLOLOLOLOL! Yeah. He’ll use the shotgun approach right?
The writer wants more credibility & recommends Biden?
Is this satire?
The New York based Foreign Policy Community is preparing options to dump Obama without actually forcing him to leave office. This smacks of desperation.
Well “czar” does have some of the letters for “crazy” in it...
I don't see the word "czar" in there. Not in the U.S. Constitution, anyway. Maybe the "experts" at the Post have another one in mind.
Actually not a bad idea. Suppose you have only two choices: Let a ignorant and spoiled child run things, or let a somewhat confused adult run things. You probably should go with the somewhat confused adult.
The adult at least would have some grasp of reality.
Yeah, let’s take control of the US foreign policy away from an incompetent, unbelievable dumbass President and put it in the hands of an unbelievably incompetent CLOWN Vice-President?!?!
Hell, we might as well drop nukes on ourselves, because if the rest of the world had to actually deal with Biden, they would go right past their current “pissed-at-the-US” position into “we-need-to-kill-the-American-idiots-who-voted-for-these-two-before-they-procreate” mode!
I agree, but Biden cannot be described as simply “somewhat confused” and has NEVER been accused of having “some grasp of reality.”
So, we will need to find a brighter, dim-bulb!
Vice President Biden to foreign policy czar
Keep in mind that this has been viewed by forign leaders.
And when Joe Insurance Policy winds up making things worse, which he always does, they’ll turn to Bozo the Clown.
Which would be an improvement.
