Skip to comments.Crises Cascade and Converge, Testing Obama
Posted on 07/23/2014 6:10:17 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Rarely has a president been confronted with so many seemingly disparate foreign policy crises all at once in Ukraine, Israel, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere but making the current upheaval more complicated for Mr. Obama is the seemingly interlocking nature of them all. Developments in one area, like Ukraine, shape his views and choices in a crisis in another area, like the Middle East.
Its a very tangled mess, said Gary Samore, a former national security aide to Mr. Obama and now president of United Against Nuclear Iran, an advocacy group. You name it, the world is aflame. Foreign policy is always complicated. We always have a mix of complicated interests. Thats not unusual. Whats unusual is theres this outbreak of violence and instability everywhere. It makes it hard for governments to cope with that.
Little wonder then that in recent days the president seems almost to be suffering geopolitical whiplash.

Open weeping at the NYT...
Rarely has a President been so inept at foreign policy ....
obama's not being tested ...
The lame stream is still refusing to admit the trojan horse they pulled into the compound seven years ago has laid an egg, it's hatched and the babies are running around all over the place.
In Obama's perverted mind, he's succeeding.. and considering the drastic weakening of America has always been his goal, he's right.
Somebody should have told him it was a hard job before he applied for it.
“Testing?” That assclown has been tested so many times I can’t count them. And he’s failed epically every time. There is not one single front on which he has succeeded, from the economy to foreign policy to the budget. The reason is simple: he is unequal to the office. He lacks the experience and the moral fortitude to plot a successful course even in calmer times. He is clearly out of his league in these tenser days.
He never should have been elected the first time, much less the second. He is what we get when idiots vote.
Rarely has a President been so inept at EVERYTHING!
Why point out that he’s being “tested”?
He was already tested, found severely lacking, and the current world situation is the CONSEQUENCE OF THAT FAILURE.
Truth is, all this “presidential” stuff is getting in the way of him playing 36 holes daily and he’s not happy about it. Not happy at all.
Chaos in the mind loves chaos on the street...
Socialism is chaos.. wrapped up in love words..
all of these are due to obama’s decisions or lack thereof.
Look around the world right now and you see just the beginning of the fruits yielded by a Obama/ Democrat deliberate effort to weaken America and diminish its influence. It is not a comforting sight.
. . . and NO ONE in the media, Fox included, calls it for what it is: TREASON
He's got political hacks and a stable of people picked for their roles because of their race or their gender or who they know or where they went to school or the magnitude of the campaign bundling contributions.
More hacks than a taxi stand.
To the NY Times: Maybe, just maybe, your savior is a product of affirmative action and is way in over his head. Ever see that before? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jayson_Blair
