Mr. Obama is increasingly being seen by the majority as an utter FAILURE in the areas of foreign policy and economics.

Is he *beginning* to realize that his naivete and tired, old Marxist ideology simply do not achieve anything positive?

It should take about 1.5 seconds to find an example of 0bama “attacking” Bush’s foreign policy while 0bama was a candidate.

Barack Obama criticizes Bush as he outlines foreign policy goals

Published: Monday, April 23, 2007

CHICAGO — Senator Barack Obama said Monday that even though the global image of the United States had been sullied by the war in Iraq and a “foreign policy based on a flawed ideology,” America must repair its standing in the world and resist the temptation to turn inward.

“America cannot meet the threats of this century alone, but the world cannot meet them without America,” Obama said. “We must neither retreat from the world nor try to bully it into submission - we must lead the world, by deed and example.”

In a speech before the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, Obama presented himself as a presidential candidate “who can speak directly to the world.” After a sharp critique of President George W. Bush, Obama called for increasing foreign aid to developing countries, expanding and modernizing the military and rebuilding fractured alliances.

“This president may occupy the White House, but for the last six years the position of leader of the free the world has remained open,” Obama said. “And it’s time to fill that role once more.”

Romney can score huge points by agreeing with Urkel.

He should come out and say something like, "Out of respect for the office of the Presidency, I will not meddle in foreign policy during the campaign like certain candidates did during the 2004 and 2008 campaigns."

Somebody ping Mitt Romney with the link to this story. Then, if the issue comes up (as the media is surely scheming to do), Romney can counter with it.

anyone got a picture of smirky after the 2008 election, trying to take over the country before Bush left office, from his “Office of the President-Elect” podium?

Dictators never like to be criticized. Obviously, this university professor never read what Lincoln’s critics called him. Obama is too thin-skinned to hold this office.

There was once a time in which the parties agreed that, when it comes to foreign policy issues — while a President is meeting with foreign leaders or non-U.S. soil — they’d refrain from politically based criticism.

Well.. then came the mid-2000s... and the dems tossed that agreement away when they unloaded on Bush at every given opportunity... even when he paid that surprise visit to the troops on Thanksgiving in ‘03 in Iraq. Where the opportunities existed, they pounced.

So, now the shoe is on the other foot, and now King Baraqq wants a free pass?

Yep, forgot about “office of the President-elect”...

One president at a time, eh?

I guess, in that case, Bush should have just deferred to him and left office early.

Democrat Barack Obama accused President George W. Bush on Friday of “fear-mongering” for suggesting Democrats wanted to appease terrorists and vowed to meet leaders of hostile nations like Iran if elected.

obama attacks bush foreign policy

Philadelphia Inquirer - Aug 27, 2008
Aug 28, 2008 Washington (PTI): Throwing his weight behind Barack Obama, US Democratic vice presidential candidate Joseph Biden slammed the foreign policies of Bush ... Mr Obama compared Mrs Clinton's position on Iran to President George W Bush's " foreign policy of bluster and sabre-rattling and tough talk". In 2008, Democrats are eager to attack Bush foreign policy. ... Can the earthy Biden help Obama convince voters that the Democrats are best placed to handle ...

I guess “surrender” could be considered a policy.

Is it any wonder that the United States isn’t even referenced in end times prophecy?

Romney should take it to him-—hard.

But he won’t.

Romney doesn’t know any more about foreign policy than Obama does.

The little Emperor knows just how vulnerable he is on foreign policy - of course he doesn't want Romney to exploit it.

It's interesting how your attitude changes once YOU'RE the one sitting in the Oval Office taking fire.

I actually agree with Obama here. It’s better to attack his domestic policy failures. that’s where he’s weakest. Obama would much rather talk about his foreign policy initiatives.

Romney has NO CHANCE of EVER equalling Obama’s talent for bowing to foreign Kings and dictators. He just has the knack - and we should all realize that.

Nuff Said!

If Romney needs advice on criticizing Obama’s foreign policy, he should telephone Putin. I’m sure Putin can give him some pointers he can use!

Obama shouldn;t be “warning” anyone on anything.

This guy is frightening. A narcissistic ideological sociopathic megalomanic sitting in the Executive Office of the most powerful nation on earth and too many Americans have STILL not seen this Kenyan Keynsian for what he really is.

He’s NOT black, he’s NOT white, he’s RED - ALL OVER!!!!

He attacked Bush on foreign and domestic policies and still does. He did it and Bush wasn't even running against him.

Obama is a sad, pathetic excuse for a person.
