Obama´s foreign policy in a tailspin
CNN, by Frida Ghitis

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 8/9/2013 9:42:18 AM

America´s foreign policy has gone into a tailspin. Almost every major initiative from the Obama administration has run into sharp, sometimes embarrassing, reverses. The U.S. looks weak and confused on the global stage. This might come as happy news to some opponents of the administration who enjoy seeing Barack Obama fail, but it shouldn´t. America´s failure in international strategy is a disaster-in-the-making for its allies and for the people who see the U.S. model of liberal democracy as one worth emulating in their own nations.

Comments:
THIS is CNN?

Ghitis does make the mistake of assuming that 0bama has the ability to learn and turn things around..... sorry lady, but leftist ideologues are uneducable.

Most presential candidates have little or no experience in foreign policy. Obama´s was lack of any experience to prepare to be president was glaring. For the most part, American people could be rest assured that once elected, the president will surround himself with quality people. As we can see by most of Obama´s personnel decisions, he surrounds himself with hacks and academics with no real world experience. Is anyone without an Obama sticker on their bumper surprised by the outcome?

During the 2008 campaign, his foreign policy statements were little more than infantile anti-Bush screeds of the variety one would find on the Daily K or Dumbocrat Underground.
BUT unfortunately when he spoke in his "soaring rhetoric" the dummies were listening only to the melody and not the lyrics......and now America is paying or it.

CNN makes the mistake of believing the disaster Obama has accomplished wasn´t his objective. Obama´s foreign policy results mirror his domestic disaster, but CNN will remain mute about the horrible economy, debt, corruption and the ever deepening scandals. Remember, Obama said he would fundamentally transform the US, AND HE MEANT IT.

Believe it or not, do NOT comment by speaking the truth on the CNN website. My comment there got censored out, what is there to censor? Here´s the comment, verbatim:

What a ridiculous piece of "journalism". She starts out by more or less scolding people that don´t like Obama, saying basically the guy doesn´t know what he is doing, but you better not like that because it is bad for America. Then she goes on to BLAME BUSH! After that she tries to redeem herself, but sorry Frida, you gave yourself away. Just another CNN liberal shill that wrote an article that on the surface looks like "hard hitting journalism".

I guess that Hillary was holding it together, notwithstanding the fact that, in my opinion, she failed miserably. But who can blame HER, look at who she worked for. As soon as she is elected President, she will hire Obama as her secy of State. Mrs O will be made czar of a newly created agency, called the u>S> Dept of Democratic control.

Obama´s central policy is spreading corruption. It´s the Chicago way. Foreign policy doesn´t enter into it, unless there is cash flowing this direction. Take the domestic fossil fuels boom, and it´s potential to create very long term energy independence. Why is that being fought tooth and nail? Follow the money. The greens and OPEC/Saudis make common cause.

This was very predictable. Obama embraces Howard Deans belief the US should no longer be a Superpower and combines it with Howard Zinn´s anti-Americanism, it´s all our fault. Add in some political hacks and a few academics that think they know everything and you have a recipe for disaster.

I didn´t see Hill-of-Beans´ name anywhere, did you?

Yes, as Secy of State her marching orders came from BO, so they reflected his worldview.

His worldview is one of disdain for the USofA. "Disdain" is actually far too mild a word to describe his typical leftwing hatred and contempt for America AND us, those who love this Republic.

And unlike Dem/Lefties who cheered when Pres. Bush experienced discomfiture, we do not like to see our nation disrespected no matter who is in the White House.

On the other hand, we do like to see the truth exposed. We are perhaps seeing the tip of the iceberg of BO´s real, very real, failures around the world.

What do we have?

A weakened economy, a weakened national defense system, a weakening military, an ineffective foreign policy/a meddlesome and illogical foreign policy= a weakened USA, levelled down to par with every other ordinary nation... no longer a super power, no longer respected OR feared

A tailspin, indeed.

-----------

Like most reporters this woman seems to think that Americans who detest Obama do so for some irrational or perhaps prejudiced reason. We just hate the guy, they think, and therefore we want him to fail.

No how many times we say that the reason we don´t like Obama is that we disagree with his politics and we don´t think he knows what he is doing, people like this reporter refuse to hear us.

Are we happy that he has made a mess of American foreign policy just as he has made a mess of everything he has touched? No. But neither are we surprised. It is what we feared, what we tried in vain to warn groupies like this reporter about. The dude has no qualifications for the presidency. He doesn´t know what he is doing. His vanity prevents him from learning from his mistakes because he does not think he makes any mistakes. He is a fool.

We are not happy that he has done precisely what we expected he would do and what we sought to warn people he would do. But there is a definite glimmer of happiness that at last, at long, long last clueless liberals like this reporter and others are slowly beginning to wake up and smell the coffee. There is happiness at this because it gives us hope that the virtually unlimited ability Obama has had to harm America may, just may be starting to be reined in.

Kim Jong-un gets mobbed

Kim Jong-un has taken on his role as North Korea’s Supreme Leader with gusto — even, if reports are to be believed, culling some members of his own family. He expects his people to follow his lead — from haircuts through to behaviour and rarely shows his relaxed side. That is until he gets mobbed. By females. Specifically, hot Korean ladies. Just moments earlier he showed his formal, restrained side by posing alongside members of the Korean People’s Army. Then the admirers came running. We’ve never seen Kimmy’s smile so wide. He bathed in the female attention.

WASHINGTON — According to a new study, commissioned by the federal government, says that biofuels made from the leftovers of harvested corn plants are actually worse than gasoline -- when it comes to global warming in the short term. The research published in the journal Nature Climate Change challenges the Obama administration´s conclusions that biofuels are a much cleaner oil alternative and will help fight climate change. The study is being criticized by the biofuels industry and Obama administration as flawed. Corn residue is one of the most promising ways to make cellulosic biofuels. Biofuels have struggled to reach the volumes

First-time movie producer and mom-to-be Chelsea Clinton has premiered a short film at the Tribeca Film Festival. Clinton is the executive producer of the short “Of Many,” a documentary about the friendship of two religious leaders at New York University. One is rabbi, the other is an imam. Clinton was previously an assistant vice provost at NYU. The 34-minute film made its Tribeca debut Thursday night. The screening was attended by the 34-year-old Clinton and her father, former President Bill Clinton. Chelsea Clinton announced Thursday that she and her husband, Marc Mezvinksy, are expecting their first child this fall.

The protesters marched to the embassy in Kuala Lumpur from a nearby mosque after Friday afternoon prayers, shouting "God is great" and "Obama is the enemy of the Prophet Muhammad."

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today.
