WASHINGTON — 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. (snip)Criticism over Obama has only mounted over the past year following Obama’s decision to pull back a military strike in Syria and his inability to stop Russia from annexing territory from Ukraine. A White House official said Obama would specifically address both situations, as well as the status of ongoing nuclear negotiations with Iran. The president is also expected to discuss

I don’t entirely understand; how does one get more “limited” than nothing?

OR...

This is not good news; I was hoping that he would laser-focus on foreign affairs and not screw anything else up even worse here; because, everything that he or his party has touched has basically turned into crap.

I’d guess that the way the mid terms are shaping up, Barry could just as well schedule two years of golf.

Obama To Outline More Limited Approach To Foreign Policy

This has got to be one of the most idiotic headlines I have ever seen. 'Limited' means placing restraints on our strengths which results in a weaker policy projection which other nations will take advantage of. I cannot believe anyone can be this stupid.

Let them have at it. Just build up the USA, pull back our troops and sit this one out. A war in Europe would be existential for us with China and Islam waiting in the wings.

While I agree that Obama = worse than 100% FAIL...

I also do have to agree that the insolvent USA has vastly over-reached around the world on a military empire basis, and must pull back as the world's policeman precisely to maintain the capability to protect America's core security and self interests.

The Founders were 100% correct about avoiding foreign entanglements and offensive wars. Defend America; but let our allies accept responsibility for providing their own primary defense.

Can we please elect a solid majority of Representatives and Senators who will pledge to impeach, convict and imprison Ophonybama and his entire LIEberal entourage?

Just out of more than idle curiosity, do any FReepers know any Republican of substance calling for Impeachment?

Not much left that he hasn’t already screwed up. Of course it is time to scale back.

Dear Leader is beginning to realize that messing with things he knows nothing about, like the economy, health care and foreign policy, just makes things worse. He needs to stick to throwing parties for Beyonce and playing golf.

The only time that he actually looks into limited government, and it is the one way to make America weaker.

The man IS consistent. Gotta give him that.

To: MeshugeMikey; All

If America “had a dream” to live prosperous and free,
Then the dream must killed, and consumed you see.
The Obamavultures that are feasting, while Boehner sits still,
“Both” parties consider our pain as required collateral damage to fulfill.

What word did our Doormat Republicans not understand,
When Obama was first crowned The Tyrant of the Land?
Was it “Fundamentally” or “Transform” or “The United States of America?”

Why are these confused Leader Doormat Republicans still kept in power?
Why haven’t our TEA Party House Members sent Boehner to the back bench?
What does it take be it Benghazi, NSA, IRS, DOJ, or Delay to Death of our Vets?
Who are the Patriot House Members of “both” Parties to vote out Boehner?

When do We, the People rise up and declare that ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!?
When do our elected House Members stand and deliver?
When does the well-deserved Impeachment of Obama begin?
When do our House Constitutional Checks and Balances kick in?

Back in DC, things are as calm as can be,
Obama lies, frames, blames, denies and delays,
Allowing the Obamavultures to feast as before,
While Boehner, Cantor, McCarthy, Ryan, and Issa
Hold open the race to the bottom door - - - -.

It is time, - - - - time a change in 2014.

I don’t see how Obama’s foreign policy can BE more limited - at least with respect to defending the nation’s interests.
