Skip to comments.The Four Roots of Obama’s Foreign Policy Catastrophes

President Obamas foreign policy is a disaster. He cruised along for awhile, but then the rest of the world figured him out and started taking matters into their own hands, for which the Devil has made ample use.
And now, as everyone can see, were in deep doodoo in every corner of the globe.
1. Obama never cared about foreign policy
The president came into office with one thing in mind: To fundamentally transform the United States into a a kind of Northern Cuba where he could spread the wealth around to the poor from the rich, the upper middle class, and anyone else whod gotten to the point where theyd earned enough money.
Foreign policy and the wars the United States has been fighting were a terrible distraction for Obama. Sure, he wanted to do his best to protect the country kill bad guys with drones, etc. but otherwise the goal was to wind down the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and pay minimal attention to world affairs.
2. Obama is a naïve peacenik
Im a peacenik too, but hopefully not a naïve one.
If you went to college, Obama was the guy whose room you went to smoke pot he knew where to get the Hawaiian!! and talk about how Ronald Reagan was a dunce who starred in a movie with a monkey, how the United States was spreading its capitalist, imperialist philosophy of greed around the world, and how Communists in Latin America were just trying to make a better life for their people.
Such thinking this trust in the benign intentions of those who . . .

The kenyan has skated his whole life trading on the fact that you can’t call a black person lazy without being labelled racist.
Why blame Obama ,he’s only there for the speech reading ,nothing else
In other words, he is implementing the foreign policy the Left has been itching to implement since the late 60’s.
Look at your kid’s friends, and you will see his future. Look at the President’s friends, and you will see the country’s future.
3. Obama is not ready for prime time
Obama not only was bereft of any serious experience before becoming president, but he lacks, as my gastroenterologist would say, the intestinal fortitude for the job.
He draws red lines, and then whimpers away. He makes tough statements without the means to back them up. He fails to even try to bend others to his will, unless theyre Israeli. He lacks the relish for mixing it up in the ring when he has to, the boyish pugilism that comes out when a great leader needs it. Hed rather play golf.
4. Last but not least, theres this:
Hillary Clinton was a disastrous choice for Secretary of State, and a choice made for all the wrong reasons.
She had absolutely no qualifications for the job, no serious understanding of foreign policy, and nothing resembling a strategic vision. Shes Henry Kissinger, except without the Henry Kissinger. You dont hear about an Obama Doctrine because there is none. There are no guiding principles to this presidents foreign policy, because there was no one around to think any up.
I believe that Hillary was chosen as Secretary of State because Obamas political advisors told him to do it.
Hillary was Obamas chief political rival among Democrats. The only presidents in the last 50 years who either lost their reelection race or figured they didnt like their chances and decided not run Lyndon Johnson, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and George H.W. Bush all had serious challengers from within their own Party.
Hillary had to be removed. And so he put her on political ice in the most effective way possible: by bringing her in at a very high level.
Also, he read a book that said Lincoln surrounded himself with his political rivals, and Obama wanted to be like Lincoln.
But a president needs a good Secretary of State. And Obama got one who failed to lodge a single noticeable foreign policy achievement during her four years on the job.
And so neither has he. And now, the lack of attention and competency is causing hundred of venus flytraps to bloom all over the world.
Naaah. My crowd was the brains crowd in high school, and Doper Stoner dude President MomJeans is obviously not one of our crowd, and never was.
The brains crowd has its own language, and Dimbulb Obama don't speak it (Austrian, that is...).
I find it amusing that many Lefties that I know believe that Obama is the "smartest guy in the room". Of course, I never would be so rude as to rate their intelligence to their face, but they are not part of the brains crowd, either.
I would love to hear someone read this out loud on CNN or PMSNBC.
Secular humanist libtards want a weak America because that will make it easier to form a one world secular humanist government that will control the world based on secular humanist principles.
IE, preparing the kingdom of the anti-christ.
Lets be honest here, America’s foreign policies have been an epic total disaster for many decades...From Mexico, to Vietnam to Iraq....and on and on...
It caused American blood to flow and the super rich who now borrow from the Communist Chinese, spent and looted the American treasure.
