Associated Press ^ | May 25, 2014 4:38 AM EDT | Julie Pace

Confronting critics of his foreign policy, President Barack Obama will soon outline a strategy for his final years in office that aims to avoid overreach as the second of the two wars he inherited comes to a close.

The president will make the case for that seemingly more limited approach during a commencement address Wednesday at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. The speech will come amid growing frustration in the White House with Republicans and other critics who contend that Obama has weakened America’s standing around the world and faltered on problems across the Middle East and in Russia, China and elsewhere. …

Less than zero is the biggest most inept laziest fraud ever to step foot in Washington.
He is the perfect leader for this worst generation.

This just means we’ll hear more of “well, I heard about that just now - when you all did” when some sh!thole blows up somewhere again.

Yes, hear about everything from the news instead of intelligence briefings.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the regime is planning to pack its bags — prolly having little interest in FP as you suggested ( or I inferred from your post.)

Foreign policy is the most important job conveyed to a President. In fact, it’s the only job. Everything else takes an act of Congress.

Thank God for that

If your sole response to any problem, action, accusation, indictment, etc. is “ I just now heard about it an I’m mad as hell, I’m gonna get to the bottom of it and heads will roll, why have any plan or do anything?

The media and other Democrats are so invested in protecting the tenure and legacy of America’s First Black President, there isn’t a need to do anything, except that which guarantees your tenure - condemn your opposition and pander for votes.

>> “I just now heard about it an I’m mad as hell ... “

Sadly, politicians get away with that lie for too long.

Regarding “America’s First Black President”, that Black attribution is a distinction that only concerns Democrats — the quality of POTUS’ character is irrelevant (to Democrats.)

To busy waging war on the U.S to worry about foreign policy.

Using a captive audience for political purposes as usual.

“limited foreign policy”

Is this satire??

Even -0 has to do what is called upon him to do I would believe.

Is he just quitting or did he ever really start?

Maybe he will impeach himself.

Will the big Mooch let him leave?

She will probably steal more silverware than the Klintoons when she leaves.

The thoughts are endless and BS goes on forever....

FEEL SAFER YET? Talk about "limited" foreign policy--
Boobamba gave this boob ntl security clearance.

Tommy Vietor, Boobamba's campaign van driver attends WH Situation Room meetings.
Van driver Vietor wrote the infamous Susan Rice "talking points."
BTW, Tommy is Hillary's top pick for Secretary of State (cackle).

From now on he will only put his nose where it doesn't belong, and hands off wherever he *should* have done something.
Oh, wait. Isn't that the same as the old policy?

OBAMA:
“You hit singles, you hit doubles,” he said. “Every once in a while we may be able to hit a home run. “

Hey champ...you never even got suited up and into the dugout.

IMHO....The entire corps of Army cadets at West Point should boo the POTUS Obama off the stage!!! However......they are too classy and proper to do that!!! What they can do is greet POTUS Obama with tepid applause when he is announced....and, do exactly the same when he finishes his usefull purposeless remarks. Obama belongs nowhere near any of our precious military personnel!!! What a farce, and what a country that supports this low life America hater!!!
