Posted on 04/28/2014 3:29:25 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

President Barack Obama vigorously defended his foreign policy record Monday, arguing that his cautious approach to global problems has avoided the type of missteps that contributed to a ‘‘disastrous’’ decade of war for the United States.

Summing up his foreign policy philosophy, Obama said it was one that ‘‘avoids errors.’’

T. rex couldn’t run very fast. He didn’t have to. As long as he was faster than his prey, that was fast enough.

So too Obama. He doesn’t have to be smart. He just has to be smarter than the idiots who voted for him.

Hey, O. Did you notice that since Bush’s decade of war we haven’t had any major terror attacks on our soil?

Why should the Obamadork vigorously defend...when the MSM will do so for him?

We all know they 1) aren’t bright enough to do their own research and 2) tow the party line anyway.

May they all die in a sewer.

his foreign policy: like his name "ZERO"..an obsolute failure.
..bright side (internationally); gays/queers (aberrants) "love" him.

It is always easier to avoid the discomfort of having to take action when you surrender up front.

He doesn't get it. The rest of the world thinks he is an incompetent buffoon. Putin has already proven this.

Just Fort Hood and Boston.

And those both took place on Hussein’s watch.

His drone use indicates the opposite claims. He’s just making excuses for his lack of policy beyond snuffing out those he distrusts abroad in his network of Brotherhood.

Let’s just look at it. Our friends like us less, and our enemies hate us more. Pretty much par on the Barack Obama golf course.

So the loss of the ambassador and 3 other Americans, in Libya, during an arms shipping operation to Syrian & al Qaeda rebels was *not* a mistake?!

Oh, sure there have been attacks (and you're right...those were on Obama's watch).

But the decade of war under Bush kept us on offense and kept us safe. For that reason it should be something to be praised , not denigrated.

Obama continues to be the Liar in Chief.

It’s easy to “avoid errors”, when you do nothing.

On second thought, Bengahzi (sp), was a huge error, from doing nothing. Hillary & Obam, joint owners.

We should hold the media accountable. The biased media is the enemy of the American people.

Thanks Oldeconomybuyer.
Rand Paul: Time for GOP to soften war stance
...by softening its edge on some volatile social issues and altering its image as the party always seemingly "eager to go to war... We do need to expand the party and grow the party and that does mean that we don't always all agree on every issue" ... the party needs to become more welcoming to individuals who disagree with basic Republican doctrine on emotional social issues such as gay marriage... "We're going to have to be a little hands off on some of these issues ... and get people into the party," Paul said.
