I think he has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.
Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates on Vice President Joe Biden
Hey Bob, tell me a liberal who hasnt.
Step back from the ongoing scandal of Benghazi or the shameless politics of Hillary Clintons I opposed the surge because you were in the primary, Barack politics.
Look instead at the Democratic Partys record on foreign policy over the past 40 years. Its not bad its abysmal.
Take Gates challenge: Name a foreign policy position that Democrats like John Kerry and Ed Markey have gotten right, going back to President Reagans election.
They opposed Reagans stance against the Soviet Union, opposing missile deployments in Europe and a missile shield at home.
Fighting communism? New York Democrats just elected a mayor who supported the communist Sandinistas in Central America.
Then came the first Gulf War driving Saddam out of Kuwait, which virtually everyone agrees was the right thing to do but which 47 Democrats, including Kerry, voted against.
Under Bill Clinton, Democrats ignored the rising threat of Islamist terror. Clintons presidency began with the first World Trade Center bombing and ended with the USS Cole.
Other than a few meaningless missile firings, the Clinton administration did virtually nothing. Liberals urged him to do even less.
Then came 9/11 and what, according to Gates, President Obama views as the good war in Afghanistan, versus...

Take a poll...Who is/was the most clueless/doofus VP in history?
obama blows everything he touches... and reggie.
Biden: “Stand up Chuck”
Biden is not the story. The administration again deflects the real story by coming to the aid of Biden when the real blockbuster is about Obama and Clinton. Both are involved in risking National security and our military for political reasons. Another incidence of people dying for their personal political careers.
Behold what Democrats' "Smart Power" hath wrought: Obama's careening and incomprehensible handling of the Syrian crisis.....doing a Costa Concordia with US ntl security and foreign policy. Obama outed himself as naive, isolated....and outlandishly stupid. Not to forget then-Secy of State Hillary's part in the "Smart Power" debacle.
Democrats' 'Smart Power' Lies in Ruins; Suddenly
Realizing What They Miscalculated About the World:
National Review | Sept 3, 2013 | Jim Geraghty / FR Posted by kristinn
....... Democrats are suddenly realizing that their foreign policy brain-trust completely misjudged the world.
Being nicer to countries like Russia will not make them nicer to you. The United Nations is not an effective tool for resolving crises. Some foreign leaders are beyond persuasion and diplomacy. There is no international community ready to work together to solve problems, and there probably never will be.
You can pin this on Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Susan Rice, but most of all, the buck stops with the president. Those of us who scoffed a bit at a state senator ascending to the presidency within four years on a wave of media hype and adoration are not quite so shocked by this current mess.
We never bought into this notion that getting greater cooperation from our allies, and less hostility from our enemies, was just a matter of giving this crew the wheel and letting them practice, as Hillary Clinton arrogantly declared it, smart power (and fronted Time magazine cover).
(These people cant even label a foreign policy approach without reminding us of how highly they think of themselves.)
They looked out at the world at the end of the Bush years, and didnt see tough decisions, unsolvable problems, unstable institutions, restless populations, technology enabling the impulse to destabilize existing institutions, evil men hungry for more power, and difficult trade-offs.
No, our problems and challengers were just a matter of the previous hands running U.S. foreign policy not being smart enough. (Excerpt) Read more at nationalreview.com ...
OH, BTW, AT THE SAME TIME Smartpowertics, O and HILL, staged military raids in Libya, they gained access to the National Bank of Libya. (No, no paper money there---just solid gold bars. Solid Gold. Not the Chinese tungsten filled bars that flooded the gold market).
LET'S STROLL DOWN MEMORY LANE In 2009, Obama made a "Smart Power" suck-up speech in Cairo----"apologizing" for America's historical role in the Middle East. By snubbing Mubarak, Obama set the stage for the Egyptian president's overthrow by the Islamic mob.
When the worst-case scenario happened, when Obama's personal choice---Islamist Muslim Brotherhood, Mohamed Morsi, was elected president----Obama sap-happily sent his secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, to Cairo to personally kiss-up to Morsi....perhaps at that time hatching their plans to destroy Westen civiliation in compliance w/ Muslim dictates.
Obama's treacherous ill-advised component of US foreign policy----sucking up to the very people who want to kill us and destroy our churches. He portrayed teeming Muslim majorities there as "victims of Western colonialism and Cold War policies," stupidly promoting American-style democracy for these conflicting cultures w/ thousands of years of religious and territorial factionalism.
OBOBO'S SUCKUP "The relationship between Islam and the West includes centuries of coexistence and cooperation, but also conflict and religious wars," Obama said in the June 2009 speech in Cairo. "More recently, tension has been fed by colonialism that denied rights and opportunities to many Muslims, and a Cold War in which Muslim-majority countries were too often treated as proxies, without regard to their own aspirations."
Fast forward to 2013: the savage Muslim Brotherhood torched some 63 Egyptian churches and many Christian businesses. Obama ignored the bloodbath and spent the crisis dining out, golfing, power-partying, and vacationing in exclusive Marthas Vineyard on the taxpayers' dime.
BACKGROUND MUSIC---"That Old Black Magic Has Me In Its Spell"
" This'll get done fast---I gotta get back to golf."
"A few measly bombs will pump-up all of our resumes,
especially Benghazi screw-ups Susan ("video") Rice, candidate
Hillary....and that pontificating jerk, Kerry. "
"And at $50 billion per day for the Syrian incursion, all who
support me, Repub/Democrat alike, gets a cut. Should be in the
neighborhood of a few $hundred million each. "
"That damn *itch Michelle's nagging me for new diamonds and
a pricey Vineyard house.
"War-profiteering is big bucks. Just ask them 'bombs-away neocons."
Gates PURPOSEDLY demolished Biden and PRAISED Hillary in order to clear the path for Hillary so there’s no Primary challenge to her.
There's Obama's quirky sideshow----a gay drumbeat and act after act of self-made melanin victims whining....and collecting govt checks... as assorted grievances multiply.
As usual, Obobo is on the wrong side. Coincidentally (snix), Russia and China (who would veto any UN move against Assad) have rallied behind Gen al-Sisi and denounced the Muslim slaughter of Christans in Egypt.
AS FREEPER PENELOPESIRE INSIGHTFULLY POSTED: Wait until the Saudis and Egyptians get through waterboarding the truth out of the Muslim Brotherhood leaders they have in custody!
Also sitting in a nice comfy Egyptian jail is Gehad al Haddad---a Muslim Brotherhood spox--and a former employee of Hillary and Bill's tax-exempt foundation.
Gehad was arrested for inciting violence AT THE SAME TIME he was a Clinton employee. Betcha he knows plenty abt how the M/B uses tax-exempts for money-laundering (to finance their terror activities against America).
All of Obama and Hillarys little secrets on Benghazi and arming Islamists and Al Quaeda throughout the Middle East are going to come falling out of the bag.
Truthfully, I would not be surprised to see uncle Joe screw up negotiations for a cup of coffee at Starbucks. Liberals risking the security of the US and the lives of our military over purely political BS also does not surprise me. To a liberal the agenda, the idea and ideal is evening. Practicality, consequences, and the real world do not matter. Yes, that makes them extremely dangerous in any leadership position.
Nice to blame ole Joe for foreign policy failures.
He’s not the guy pulling the trigger.
This should be rightly laid at Fairy Obama’s feet and a statue of a fool erected for all to see as an emblem of epic stupidity and a visual affirmation of the disastrous mistake they made re-electing an assclown to continue making America loom shiftless and rudderless, in our foreign policy.
“All of Obama and Hillarys little secrets on Benghazi and arming Islamists and Al Quaeda throughout the Middle East are going to come falling out of the bag.”
I HOPE SO!!
