About the President’s Foreign Policy Speech at West Point May 28, 2014

Posted by geoff in News.

I think this single sentence by the Daily Mail sums it up:

Receiving tepid applause and a short standing ovation from less than one-quarter of the audience upon his introduction, Obama argued for a contradictory foreign policy that relies on NATO and the United Nations while insisting that ‘America must always lead on the world stage.’

He also had this comment:

“…U.S. military action cannot be the only — or even primary — component of our leadership in every instance,” he said. “Just because we have the best hammer does not mean that every problem is a nail.”

The problem is that all we have left is a hammer, and it’s getting older and weaker.

It was a speech full of straw-men.
The arrogant mofo would NOT return, even one cadet salute, but offered only a handshake.
That is an insult to every one of them.
The asshole did that very deliberately…

We always knew he was an affirmative action baby, failing ever upwards. If he had a competent staff, including knowledgeable and clever speechwriters, he might have sailed through his presidency without it ever becoming so apparent.
