Obama Warns Romney on Foreign Policy (Usurper whines: "We have one president at a time.")
Politico ^ | Tuesday, June 19, 2012 | Jennifer Epstein and Reid J. Epstein

LOS CABOS, Mexico – President Barack Obama warned Mitt Romney and his advisers to not attack him on foreign policy, telling the press here that “we have one president at a time.”

Asked about a Romney adviser’s op-ed in a German newspaper last month critical of Obama’s economic plan, Obama argued that there’s a history of not letting domestic politics intercede in international conversations.

“I would point out that we have one president at a time and one administration at a time, and I think traditionally the notion has been that America’s political differences end at the water’s edge,” Obama said, speaking at the end of his two-day conference with world leaders here.

But Obama took issue with the Romney campaign’s version of discussions.

“I’d also suggest that he may not have been familiar with what our suggestions to the Germans have been. I think sometimes back home there is a desire to superimpose whatever ideological argument are taking place back home on a very complicated situation in Europe,” the president said.

Obama opened the press conference by ticking through progress he’d made with European leaders on addressing the debt crisis there, acknowledging that problems on the continent would reverberate in the American economy in ways that could hurt his political chances.

“I think it’s fair to say that any, all these issues, economic issues will potentially have an impact on this election. But that’s not my biggest concern right now,” Obama said. “My biggest concern is the same one I’ve had over the last three and a half years.”

There remained sticking points, though. Obama admitted that talks with Russia and China had not yet acheieved an international consensus on the future of Syria and President Bashar al-Assad.

Fu*k you Barry!

You don't have an administration, you have a REGIME!

Note to Romney: “Looks like Barry is signaling he's got a glass jaw when it comes to criticism of his foreign policy. Nail him to the wall with criticism!”

I’m surprised he didn’t sign an executive order forbidding anybody from saying anything negative about him.

I guffawed when I heard that old chestnut. It expired early in the Bush Administration, never to be true again.

TRADITIONALLY, Presidents reveal their med records and college transcripts. TRADITIONALLY, Presidents don’t go around congress and grant amnesty to a million criminals. TRADITIONALLY, Presidents don’t bow to dictators.
TRADITIONALLY, PRESIDENTS RESPECT THE CONSTITUTION.

World leaders would be well advised to make Obama wait outside while serious talks are going on. The boy king doesn’t know anything about anything.

Helmut Schmdt lectures Jimmy Carter

As time went on, Carter lost more and more respect for his know-it-all German counterpart. The diary contains frequent comments disparaging Schmidt, such as: “Schmidt lectured on economic matters and gave a history of Germany’s great sacrifice to help other nations overcome their economic problems.” Likewise, the two leaders started to clash more often in public. During the oil crisis, the two argued over energy-saving measures at a G-8 summit in Tokyo. “The first day of the economic summit was one of the worst days of my diplomatic life,” says Carter’s diary entry from June 28, 1979. “Schmidt got personally abusive toward me.”

President Barack Obama warned Mitt Romney and his advisers to not attack him on foreign policy, telling the press here that “we have one president at a time.”

Sen. Barack Obama called the war in Iraq a “dangerous distraction” Tuesday and said more emphasis must be placed on the battle in Afghanistan.

“As should have been apparent to President Bush and Sen. [John] McCain, the central front in the war on terror is not Iraq, and it never was,” Obama said in what his campaign called a major policy address on Iraq, Afghanistan and national security.

FUBO

“”America’s political differences end at the water’s edge,” Obama said, speaking at the end of his two-day conference with world leaders here.””

It’s as we expected - even HE doesn’t believe his own lies. When has he NOT spoken against the US when he’s out of this country?

A case of: Do as I say and blah blah blah????

Well, shucks - he didn’t finish the sentence, did he?
I should have picked up all of that quote... The same concern of 3 1/2 years is what - getting reelected?

Salve

I would not advise him at all to give speeches like this from a idiotic figure on international stage.

Putin made it clear what he thinks, and did others.

I want to interject this suppose “Body language.”

1. Putin made it very clear, he is not working with intelligent person.

2. Putin in body language send a message: If you make fun of White House, of dignitaries, when some homosexuals can do what they want to do, our conversation is over.

3. Time for you to bring adults to talk.

Merci.

I remember how Ms Pelosi went AGAINST the Bush Admin. wishes about not going to visit the leader of Syria during the Iraq War. She didn’t let her criticism stop at the water’s edge. If I remember correctly, she wore that awful looking scarf to cover her head and showboating and coddling to the vicious dictator we are having loads of trouble with today. Hypocrits!
