Obama's Foreign Policy Blunders

As we watch the circus unfold related to Edward Snowden, the national security leaker and China, Russia and other countries thumbing their noses at Socialist President Obama, what we are really seeing is the President's incompetence related to managing US foreign policy.   While Obama does everything he can to change the subject, now focusing on crazy Global Warming schemes that will destroy our coal industry, kill jobs in the US and dramatically raise energy prices for all Americans,  overseas, we are seeing what happens when we have a weak inexperienced, ineffective President.  Frankly, it is downright embarrassing for our nation; but not surprising. 

The current turn of events was predictable.   It all started with Obama's Apology Tour in the Middle East, when he first became President, blaming the US for everything bad in the world.   Then Obama declared the US would never be first to use nuclear weapons.  What a dope!   Next, Obama unilaterally announced that he was taking out the missile defense system we had installed in Poland and the Czech Republic because of Russia's insistence, without even informing our allies first and getting nothing in return from Russia, or Iran for doing it.  Again, what a dope!

Socialist President Obama's need to be loved is a clear and present danger to our nation.   Machiavelli posed the question in his book, The Prince, "Is it better for the Prince to be loved or feared".   We see the answer in what is happening around the world.   Our enemies do not fear Obama, which is the reason they walk all over him.   Richard Nixon once said the rest of the world needed to believe that the President of the United States was crazy enough to push the nuclear button, so that the button will never need to be pushed.   Russia's Putin and leaders in Iran, China and North Korea know that Obama will never push the button and so they act without any regard to American interests.   These leaders treat Obama like he is the President of a banana republic, not the President of the United States. 

It would be funny if it wasn't dangerous to our national security.    It is not clear yet whether Edward Snowden is a Traitor, or a hero.   At this point, this whole fiasco has become an international show down between the United States and any country that would harbor who Obamanistas and others in our government have defined as a Traitor.   Therefore, it is a vital interest of the United States that Snowden be returned to the United States.   Short of going to war over this fiasco,  Obama should send the Ambassador of any country that would harbor Snowden packing and not let that Ambassador back into the United States until Snowden is returned.  

There are no doubt other similar actions that can be taken to signal that there will not be business as usual with any country that harbors Snowden.  Instead, as Obama attempts to change the subject, Obama appears impotent on the global stage.   This did not happen overnight or because of the Edward Snowden fiasco; but is the result of Man/Child Obama's foolish foreign policy, since being elected.   Too bad Obama never took and passed International Relations 325.  It is all in the book that I still have in my book case at home.   Can anyone imagine these things would be happening if Ronald Reagan was still the President of the United States; not likely.
