'Obama benefits from ongoing rage' (barf!)
Russia Today ^ | Published: 15 September, 2012, 07:19

Posted on 09/15/2012 5:34:06 AM PDT by TigerClaws

As new anger towards the United States spreads across the Muslim world, President Obama’s election campaign could greatly benefit from the turmoil, author and journalist Afshin Rattansi told RT. The ongoing protests could be just the issue to convince undecided voters to choose a Democrat, as swing electorates see Romney as having no foreign policy credentials, Rattansi says. For now, China and Russia can play a decisive role in stopping the ongoing, deadly protests across the Muslim world.

Yeah, that 1% of the population which is Muslim is probably chomping at the bit to vote for the Occupant. Everybody else is aghast, even those totally devoted to him.

Of course, that 1% probably was already voting for him, so...

If you really believe he's getting points right now, you're nuts.

I was offended that he made the return of the 4 a photo op. He's a piece of sh**.

“foreign policy credentials”?

What f*cking foreign policy credentials does Obama even have after 4 years???

Nevermind the half-term when he was a Jr. senator.

Failure?

North Africa and the Mideast are moving exactly where he wants. He took down Mubarak and Ghadaffi, knowing they would be replaced by the Muslim Brotherhood, the same umbrella organization Hillary's bunkmate belongs to.

The only thing left to foil Bam’s plan of a caliphate stretching from Morocco to Iran is Israel, which the world knows will not receive an ounce of support from us in the upcoming war with Iran.

Does anyone see 0bama as having any foreign policy credentials, particularly in lieu on this week's events.

Unfortunately, the article may be right, in thaat 0bama will benefit. He`ll use this as a “rationale” for voters to keep him in office as the “experienced” hand in foreign policy. It`s perverse, but it tends to work that way. The thrust for Romney needs to be how badly handled this whole issue has been.

I don’t think he benefits at all. I think this is toxic for him and his campaign. The buck stops with him.

To clarify my earlier statement.. Romney needs to emphasize how badly 0bama has handled it.

I totally agree with you on that. To me it’s like Carter and his handling of the hostage crisis right before he got his walking papers in the 1980 election. The parallels are spooky. Obama is losing and things just got worse for this clown. His incompetence is on full display

Downgraded US credit rating. Horrible domestic record.

Now riots in countries Obama supposedly had calmed. Loss of a key ally in the region. Horrible foreign policy track record.

This election should already be over. The Affirmative Action president continues to be graded by different standards of competence.

Also note who supports Obama on the international scene.

The Russians want him to stay.

The Chinese want him to stay.

This a clue to anyone?

“...foreign policy credentials...” The irony is just too delicious. The man/child has absolutely NONE.

Putin wants Obama to win, so of course Russia Today would interview someone who supports Obama. Garbage in, garbage out.
