Skip to comments.The red flags in Obama’s foreign policy

Barack Obama spent his first term undoing what he saw as the excesses of U.S. post-Cold War foreign policy, from land wars in the Middle East to insufficient attention to Asia. By his own account, he largely succeeded. But chances are he will spend his second term grappling with the flaws in his cure.
Contrary to the usual Republican narrative, Obama did not lead a U.S. retreat from the world. Instead he sought to pursue the same interests without the same means. He has tried to preserve Americas place as the indispensable nation while withdrawing ground troops from war zones, cutting the defense budget, scaling back nation-building projects and forswearing U.S.-led interventions.

H/T to Hot Air.
This guy gets PAID to write this drivel? Amazing!
Pursuing the same goals without the same means; maintaining our lofty status while reducing our military...
This is like encouraging people to buy a house without any income. Or promising to “save” the middle class while simultaneously depriving it of the cheap abundant energy necessary for it’s prosperity.
Only a fool would believe policies like that actually work. But then again, this is the Washington Post. Never mind.
re: “Contrary to the usual Republican narrative, Obama did not lead a U.S. retreat from the world.”
What crap!! Republicans NEVER said that. They said Obama’s foreign policy was one of intentionally putting America at a tremendous disadvantage with the other world powers, that his foreign policy was one of shunning our friends and embracing our enemies, and that his actions were designed to put America on a path of irrelevancy on the world stage.
The election is over so now the ComPost tells us about Obama’s foreign policy failure! Gee, ever heard of Benghazi?
Look at Aaron Klein’s reporting at WND and read the three part story about The Chicago Connection at the blog chicagopaytoplay.com. Look at the concept RESPOSIBILITY TO PROTECT.
Look up International Crisis Group (ICG) and see who is on their board.......George Soros.
From Day One 0bama's foreign policy has been a red flag, and it had a hammer sickle and star on it.
In a nut shell, a progressive President cannot put large numbers of US boots on the ground. So the scumbag hired a bunch of Islamic Terrorists to do his dirty work and the world is paying a very heavy price.
