Exactly how badly President Obama and Hillary Clinton have been at conducting our foreign policy has, over the past week, been coming into clearer focus. Now, we have an additional datum to broaden our insight and understanding.
Here's a clue: They SUCK!
When President Obama descended from heaven and assumed his heavenly throne, in the White House, we were told, mostly by him and his acolytes in the press, that it would be a new day in American foreign policy and that President Obama would renew and reinvigorate our relations with nations in the Middle East. We were assured that President Obama was singularly qualified to do so because of his (SHHHH!!! Hush now, don't say this too loudly) early, Muslim education in Indonesia.
We were told that President Obama would "Restore respect for America around the world."
. . . umm, yeah, I see what they mean . . . I think.
- Putin falls into paroxysms of laughter every time Obama's name is mentioned.*
- Former French President, Sarcozy joked about waiting for Obama to "walk on water."
- Iran has pretty much ignored Obama's protests and repeated warnings.
- Pakistan is further from being a friend of America than it has been in 2 decades.
- Iraq just allowed Iranian military aid and troops to pass through their territory on their way to fight in Syria, on the side of Assad.
- Afghanistan has deteriorated to the point that our entire mission has now become moot.
The fact is, Obama's foreign policies (such as they are) have been as pathetic a failure as has his domestic agenda. Summed together, it leads to the inevitable conclusion that Obama is (as conservatives have been saying for some time) a complete failure.
His failure was as inevitable. You can't get blood from a turnip and the turnip Obama had no previous, applicable experience in his entire life to qualify him for being President--NOTHING.
How can anyone be surprised at his failure? He was and still is the least qualified, least experienced, least talented, least capable guy in the room . . . well there was that one time he gave a speech in front of a bunch of grammar school kids, surely some of them were less prepared to be President than he.
America is now reaping the foreign policy rewards for electing Obama, just as we have been paying for that mistake domestically for 3 1/2 years . . . it just takes the FP pot longer to boil. Problem is, when that FP pot begins to boil, the consequences can be very unpredictable and very, very unpleasant.
He has been such a disaster that one must wonder if Obama's alternative to winning has been to sour the milk so badly that nobody could fix it.
Romney and his team had better be prepared to start running day one, because Obama has left a nightmare's nest. He couldn't have sabotaged our nation more if that had been his intent from day one.
Long Live Our American Republic!!!!
*Okay, I made that one up, but I'll bet it's closer to the truth than not.
