Cheney: This is just the “logical outcome of three-and-a-half years of Obama foreign policy”
Hot Air ^ | 9/13/12 | Erika Johnsen

Posted on 09/13/2012 10:06:08 AM PDT by Lakeshark

I just wanted to take a moment to draw your attention to this particular op-ed, because… dang. Former Bush-administration State Department official Liz Cheney is going straight for the jugular with this one, and it is as damning an account of President Obama’s foreign policy failures as I’ve read.
**snip**
As Cheney points out, most of President Obama’s dealings on the international stage have been nothing short of a string of groveling apologies and attempts to weaken America and fall back to everybody else’s impuissant level, instead of us telling them what’s up, because apparently we don’t have to “moral authority” to do so. Wow.

Do the same, Romney!

Well, its just putting words to what just about everyone is thinking. The ME is collapsing and our current regime hasn’t a clue.

He already did, that is why the media went crazy and tried to take him down with their “Romney shouldnt criticize the President during a crisis” meme.

Sabato: Real crisis effect: Helping Obama broaden campaign beyond his main weakness, the economy

If things keep going this way, Obama will have changed the subject yet again at tremendous expense to America. The risk for him is that the foreign policy fiasco (as yet willfully unrecognized by the media) collapses around his head in such a horrific way that his incompetence & selling the country out to our enemies cannot possibly be ignored.

Thanks very much. I know what Romney has said. He must ramp it up and go after the Marxist’s specific failings, mark him as a weak and apologetic amateur and nail him, just like Charles advised on BOR’s last night.

Obama does have a clue, he needs a “crisis” to justify him staying in office, taking away more constitutional rights, and extorting taxpayers’ money for his own enjoyment. As far as I can tell, the right will be only going more solidy anyone but Obama, and will only continue to do so.

I saw Juan McLame this morning......stumbling over himself as he scrambled to suck up to Mitt and I wondered, where's his little cheese curd? I haven't heard his offensive dropping chime in on this yet.

Can we rid ourselves of Juan and his disgusting little clump of DNA, finally?

The Obama Muslim Outreach is now exposed as what it always was, appeasement. Obama came back from his world tour and touted Peace in our Time.

Now it’s time for Churchill’s bust to return to the White House together with the arrival of a new President.

I had to look that word up but it's a perfect description of Obama and his Democrats conduct of America's foreign policy and in particular the Obama Regime response to what has happened in Libya and Egypt. I'm incorporating it into my already vast vocabulary ;) ..

Somehow, RINOmney must view this and learn how to take it to Zero.

Somehow, Cheney ended up with a higher ball-count than Romney.

Romney managed to link the Resident’s apologize before we do right policy with the attacks, and even if his timing was off, he was after all talking about a backwards policy so why not a backwards time sequence?

By the way, three and a half years he shall hold authority? Hmmm ... where have I read that before?

That signifies a grasp of world events and intelligence that I don’t believe Obama and his cohorts posses, sorry. Nope, I’m leaning towards ‘clueless’ when it comes to the world stage. That being said, will the administration use any tragedy (real or imagined) to advance their own agenda? Of course.

No, what Romney did was weak, very weak. He criticized the embassy and said he agreed with the President’s decision to walk it back. Not going to cut in Mitt. He needs to tie the events directly to Obama’s policies. Cheney is more credible on this because he’s being saying that Obama is wrong all along but Romney should still do it

Actually, he's been pretty good with this. His statements have been clear, the Cairo embassy report WAS disgraceful, and he's made it known that Bambi is responsible for this debacle.

I'm not a great fan of Mitt, but he's been right on concerning this issue.

It's only the MSM that has blamed Romney for saying the wrong thing........and they'd be claiming it was Bush's fault if they didn't need to be blaming Mitt.
