His speech yesterday served up hawkish sound bites, but had no real agenda other than to drown out Mr. Obama’s respectable record in world affairs.http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/09/opinion/searching-for-romn...Jack
"Obama’s respectable record in world affairs."That statement is laughableObama is laughed at by the world, he is not respected. The world is burning because all the problem children do not fear or respect Obama, they are tuanting Obama/America, they are uprising, they are flexing their muscles, etc. because they do not fear/respect Obama.Obama's foreign policy? lol.. all he does is say "we're sorry", that's weak!!!
Actually, for all of his recent fumblings with Libya etc., President Obama has a much better record with foreign countries than President Bush had. And if you think it is better to have countries 'fear' you or if you equate with 'fear' with 'respect', I am glad you are not in charge of your country's foreign policy. If you desire other countries to fear you, they will eventually strike at you; if you look for respect, you have to show respect for them as well. Respect is earned both ways. The US under President Bush did not earn respect but earned more fear amongst other countries both allies and enemies. It takes awhile to regain the respect. Your limited reference to a supposed 'sorry' is old and tired. Even the Israelis have been generally pleased with President Obama in charge. Icemann
And if you think it is better to have countries 'fear' you or if you equate with 'fear' with 'respect'I am more concerned about the disrespect the USA has gotten over the past 4 yearsBears
