Obama Has Mishandled Foreign Policy, Say GOP Presidential Hopefuls

May 9, 2011 by  

Obama has mishandled foreign policy, say GOP Presidential hopefulsFollowing several days of widespread praise for President Barack Obama, a handful of potential Presidential candidates have changed course by criticizing the Commander In Chief’s foreign policy.

In what many pundits billed as an event featuring the GOP’s “B-team,” the first major political debate of the 2012 campaign season was held on May 5 in South Carolina. Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, Representative Ron Paul (R-Texas), former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, former New Mexico Governor Gary Walker and businessman Herman Cain participated in the debate, which was aired nationally on FOX News.

Obama has received bipartisan support over the past week in the wake of Osama bin Laden’s death, but that didn’t prevent the five participants from slamming the President’s handling of other international conflicts. For example, Pawlenty condemned Obama’s decision to relent in Libya.

“He made a decision to subordinate our decision making to the United Nations,” said Pawlenty, quoted by media outlets. “I don’t agree with that at all. If he says [Libyan dictator Moammar] Gadhafi must go, he needs to maintain the options to make Gadhafi go. And he didn’t do that.”

Santorum said that former President George W. Bush made the key strategic decisions in hunting down bin Laden, while Obama simply made a “tactical decision.” In terms of foreign policy strategies, Santorum claimed that the current President has faltered “every single time.”

    FUNNY

    COMING FROM OUR FORMER GOVERNOR WHO MISHANDLED THE AFFAIRS OF MINNESOTA FOR EIGHT YEARS, NO CREDIBILITY

    • Mick

      Wow smilee..

      When is the last time that you saw a government official handled the affairs of a state or the whole country properly and beneficially. ??
      Both parties have screwed things up royally for years but I still maintain that the left degenerate mentality is doing more damage to the country than any other party could ever do, they have stripped our population of their sense of responsibilities for decades, many have no core values and no remorse when taking advantage of hard working human beings and you think that the country will recover from that..? Not likely.

        100% agree! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

      • EddieW

        It’s awesome that Obozo, out Liar in chief can’t even make a decision!!! For two weeks they sought his approvval for the Bin Ladin raid, and he waffled, so they did it without his apporval…now…had it failed, he would have berated them for the sake of his Muslim friends, but it was a success, so he takes credit, to improve his standing with Americans!! Win Win!!! Still he could not make the decision!!!

        • Pat R

          The only “success” I know of, was done 10 yrs. ago. That’s how long Osama has been dead!!
          When will you people learn not to believe the MSM and that idiot in the WH?

          • Jovianus

            Pat..do you have a credible source for that claim? lol

          • WTH

            The earliest account of Osama bin Laden’s death that I learned of was back in late 2001/early 2002. Fox News printed an article. If you want to see it, you can do a Google search for “2001 bin Laden dead Fox News” and read the article. According to Fox News, he died a peaceful death in the mountains of Tora Bora as a result of complications from a lung infection (and diabetes) and was buried in an unmarked grave. Perhaps this explains the “lack of a dead body” for evidence of a burial at sea… I say “earliest account” of his death because, apparently throughout the last 10 years, there have been miscellaneous accounts of him dying in a variety of ways at miscellaneous times.

          • http://?? Joe H.

            WTH,
            There was a report in our paper the other day and according to them, counting this time there are 10 different times that there has been a report of his death

          • http://naver samurai

            I think that this is just a smoke screen to give him a jump in his ratings. Next year is an election year, you know. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        • 45caliber

          I used to have a boss like him. My boss told me that he didn’t believe in making any decisions. “If you wait long enough the decision will go away.”

          Take the two week wait. At the end, his decision went away because someone else made it for him, right? If it was wrong, he came out smelling like a rose since he could blame it on them. If it was right he could claim credit for being the leader.

          Decisions are always made when there is a problem. The bad leaders simply won’t make them.

          • 45caliber

            I should have quoted him as: “If you wait long enough the PROBLEM will go away.”

            Because someone else will give up and make a decision.

      • 45caliber

        Mick:

        Agreed. I’m not in favor of the Republicans – I’m against the liberals.

        • WTH

          This is funny… “Following several days of widespread praise for President Barack Obama, a handful of potential Presidential candidates have changed course by criticizing the Commander In Chief’s foreign policy.” Presidential candidates have changed course… THEY ARE NO DIFFERENT THAN THE DEMOCRATS. They ALL look at the polls and then hitch their wagon to whatever the majority opinion is… In reality, we are not electing someone with our ideals, we are electing someone that looks at the poll numbers, adjusts their ideology to majority opinion, they get elected and we wonder how this person can be so different than the person we saw on the campaign trail. Do not be fooled… if everyone refused to participate in detailed political polls, they could not do this.

    In the words of the great philosopher, Curly (and paranoia’s gift to progressive politics, Al ‘duh’ Gore), Herr Obummer ain’t got NO gravitas. It’s incredibly easy for utopian politicians to fool their lemming followers. Herr Obummer is the current #1 yahoo for legions of robots who are granted the great luxury of saying the ‘right’ words and phrases, and they’re looked upon as gods [BARF!]. No experience or talents are required. Just say the words, and voila. You have an instant (just add water) “leader.”
    Foreign policy is just another word with Herr Obummer. It’s akin to social justice or liberation theology. Say the words and hundreds of thousands of suckers get in line to worship at the altar of the new political god. INSANITY! You have eyes. WHY do you not SEE?

    • Eddie47d

      Pawlenty attacks Obama for going into Libya (I would agree with that).Then when Obama turns operations over to NATO because Qaddafi is a European problem and Pawlenty slams him again.Sounds like Republican political puffery to me. The world does have to show support in fighting terrorism and out of control dictators but that doesn’t mean the USA has to be in the front lines all the time. Our country can’t afford to lead the charge every time. We can show other countries the way then step back and let them do the heavy work. Santorum is a little mixed up also and is playing politics for his side. G. Bush gave up on Bin Laden about 4 or 5 years ago (Had no idea Bin Laden was in a safe house) Now they(Republicans) want praise after dropping the ball. They are like vultures coming in for the glory and a free meal when the lion made the kill.

      • 45caliber

        Eddie:

        Oblama should never have gone in to Libya. It wasn’t our business. Once he did, he should never have turned it over to the Europeans while keeping our men there.

        The biggest “war” in WWII was the refusal of Americans to fight under foreign command as they did in WWI. The European officers have no interest in having men serve under them who can think for themselves. They are simply to act as ordered and if they get killed you get more men. We should NEVER place any of our men – without their approval – under foreign command. The rules of war are totally different and will get our people killed – particularly since they have no incentative to keep our men alive and a lot of incentative to let ours die so they can save their own.

        And we should NEVER agree to finance their actions. Let them do it themselves.

      • http://www.personalliberty.com Akillion

        Abso Eddie F. Let’s all thank Bush for killing Obama, but this economy is ALL Obama’s fault. I’m starting to think the right is not racists, they just lack gray matter. All you bozos who think liberals want a nanny state, riddle me this: Trump claimed he “never went bankrupt; we’ll buy a company, throw it in a chapter and make a terrific deal!” Translation:me and my buddies will buy a company, file for bankruptcy, and we’ll all go home with fat checks. Ta hell with providing goods and services, whilst creating jobs. This, my friend is the american way and these types of scammers are the “small business owners” the right fights for…they’re actually Owners of multiple small businesses. ANY money earned outside of the supply and demand equation should be taxed HEAVILY, that’s the fairest thing to do. I wish I could take credit for something I did damn near a decade ago. This is like saying the Bulls won because of the 3 pointer Kyle Korver hit at the end of the 1st quarter.

        “Looking for and trying to kill Osama bin Laden is a complete waste of time.” Nancy Pelosi, Floor of the House, 2006. Are you sure that Bush gave up looking or was it the libs that forced him to quit? FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        • http://Verizon Bud G.

          Who listens to Nancy Pelosi anymore? That woman needs to be put in a rubber room as she is a certified nut case.

          I don’t really care about Bin Laden and as far as I am concerned we need to get out of all of those God forsaken countries as nothing will ever change there in our lifetime. Bring our troops home and cut off all aid to Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan. They are not our friends in any sense of the word. I spent many years following those countries and it is clear that both the ethnic divide and illiteracy rate will promote turmoil until they decide to change. The billions we have pumped into these countries has accomplished what except thousands of dead and severely wounded soldiers.

          The argument that if we leave, terrorism will increase around the world. The fact is our being in those countries has created the problem instead of solving it and the idiotic policies regarding foreign policy and agents in the field is a total disgrace which the current administration is finally beginning to realize.

  • http://Yahoo.com Robert

    Praise, indeed. Why have the media not noted that the decision that Obama made was forced on him by his staff who were upset by his indecision to act in a timely fashion. This excuse of a president has done an unsurmountable amount of damage to our foreign policy, turned away from our allies, and has done so much to hinder our energy efforts.

    • http://www.personalliberty.com Akillion

      False Robert! He got a myriad of suggestions, however, he chose the most direct and risky,but at the end of the day, the most effective. Why some americans want their Pres to act like a QB baffles me. If he got this wrong, lives would’ve been lost amongst a host of other things….the Bush admi would’ve dropped a bomb and had Faux News and Rush Limabugh claim victory and whether the majority of America believed them wouldn’t have mattered. Hooray for a Pres who uses his brain!

    Doc…ya almost have to feel sorry for these guys. They’re down to the last remanent of hope..attacking thoughtful, deliberate, well analyzed decision-making. Because president Obama is known as “No Drama Obama’, carefully considers all opinions and thought, focuses not on speed but on the decision itself, including short, middle and long term consequences…we are rebuilding the international stature we lost during the eight years of the previous administration.

    Add to that foreign record the economic reports coming out for the first quarter (how about that job growth number!), including the facet that the ONLY sector of our job growth that showed a decrease was government … the TPers, the wacked Right, and most of the GOP party remnants of Moderation are already ceding the fact we have a Leader in the WH who will be staying around through 2016.

    Our foeign policy was dictated by the events of 9/11. However, there is increasing evidence that the federal government was complicit in that attack, and Obama’s statement that bin Laden started this mess by his attack that killed 3000 Americans on our soil, could come back to bite him.

  • David

    Obama is an Islamist and is deliberately igniting a war in the Middle East by supporting the Jidahists in their attempts to overthrow secular governments and by unilaterally recognizing Palestime without Israel’s consent…This is a disastrous foreign policy and will result in the war of Psalm 83 (Arabs vs. Israel)…For the fourth time, Israel will win big time and, this time, she will have to annihilate the Arab cities (Amos 1-2), nuke Damascus (Isaiah 17:1) and the Aswan Dam, flooding Cairo with radioactive water and dead fish (Ezekiel 29). Egypt will not be inhabited again for forty years (Ezekiel 29:11).

    • Eddie47d

      David; Such cowardly comments and assumptions. The wars in the Middle East have been going on long before Obama hit the stage. I would say you are 100% wrong and trying to change history through propaganda.Some have even said Obama should have thrown more support behind the protesters which is opposite of what you said. Through out history there have been those who itch for war and you seem to be one of them.

      There has ALWAYS been war in the Mid-East. When they don’t have anyone else to fight, they fight each other. The best thing we could do is simply stop all weapons from going in to support any side and simply watch. They fight wars against those of other races, other religions, other tribes, and other families.

    Ron Paul has the ONLY constitutional foreign policy of the bunch – Republican or Democrat! The Constitution says the military is for defending the borders and stopping civil insurrection, nothing else. Using the military against U.S. citizens has been outlawed (at least on paper), so that leaves defending the borders and no other reason.

    Remember Obama stated he wants to disarm america to the level of acceptance to our middle eastern brethern. ( you know the ones who wish to destroy america?)Obama also expressed how he wants america to model itself after ‘peaceful muslim countries’. And should the winds turn ugly for muslims he will stand with the muslims. So if we are attacked by muslim countries..does this mean he will stand by them???

        Not to say we don’t have problems with our own country, but … have you ever seen a ‘peaceful’ Muslim country? If they aren’t trying to kill those of other religions or races they are trying to kill each other. Are you trying to say that those sites are better than our own?

        • Jovianus

          45..we are by no means a “peaceful nation”…but if you are asking if there is a “muslim” country not torn by sectarian violence, I don’t recall any. But then, i don’t recall any country for that matter which has not been victim of sectarian violence..including this one.

          My issue with many of the positions stated in this forum is that there seems to be a massive want to either turn this country away from its destiny as an empire and cede world leadership for others to decide..and take decisionmaking from our hands…or they support platforms which, without exception, will have us revert to the actions of a Third World Country…when we’re better than that.

    Since no one on this site understands, nor can conceive of
    ‘INSTITUTIONAL RACISM,” as it pertains to the overall caucasians” view of a “PERCEIVED” Black president, I’ll try to explain this otherwise, leaving out what most of you can only perceive as using the “race card.” The media is controlled by the multi nationals who are intent on forming a world government thru the European Union.
    That’s right! With immigration and “the white mans’ burden,” the United States didn’t conform to White Supremic, worldview of “Manifest Destiny.” Therefore, let’s return to Europe and re-establish colonial rule. That is what it is all about. The rest of this ranting and raving about a small little powerless president who reads from teleprompters, ideas and values fed to him by the representatives of the rich and powerful. The only relief that we have for our children is that Babylon the Great Whore is not America,
    it’s the European Union. FYI

    • 45caliber

      Edmond, as best I can tell, you are supporting the European way of life over our own. I would suggest that you get a job in one of those European countries and live under their rules and laws for at least two years. Then you can make up your mind which system is best and live in that system. It might surprise you with its problems as well as good things. I’ll take ours right now. I may change my mind later. And don’t think that Europe doesn’t have racial problems. It most certainly does – and many are worse than our own.

      Jerry:

      I’m sorry but unless you can see things from the point of view of those you are dealing with, you cannot do any good. And Oblama and friends are of that type. They simply cannot understand why everyone doesn’t think exactly as they do rather than trying to consider things from other’s point of view. They instead assume that the other will do what they themselves would do in a similar situation. But it is a typical fault of most of those on the liberal side. You are a good example.

      RA O-6. There is absolutely NO WAY obama will be elected in 2012.

      The dollar will never make it that long. Doc and jovanus are in denial of what will occur when welfare, foodstamps and unemployment checks are worthless. Did I mention that the dollar WILL BE GONE. It’s the only reason that we haven’t seen, “misc.” violent riots to date.

      The real American people who stand by the US Constitution will not tolerate another obama term…In fact, the earth will not tolerate weakness and dishonesty much longer.

  • 45caliber

    Oblama simply cannot handle foreign affairs by doing what he thinks would be the right thing. That’s the main failing of Jimmy Carter.

    What is the “right thing” to do? That depends upon their culture. Too many of our “diplomats” have the same problem. You must act within their cultural mores to be able to work with them.

    An example: Who would you feed first in your family if you could only get enough food for half of the family members? The elderly? The smallest? The teens? The middle aged adults? The young adults?

    Think about that and then read the rest of this.

    In the areas of the world where they have frequent famines, the young adults are fed first. Not enough to make them fat but enough to insure they survive. The elderly are cut off from eating first – usually by themselves – and die. Then the very young are cut off to die. And so on.

    The reason is that they know that sooner or later the famine will go away. They have to keep the young adults alive so they can take care of the rest if food arrives and to survive so they can start a new generation later.

    If they fed the elderly, those people would be almost useless when the famine is over. The smallest children – even though they do love them – would die in the midst of plenty if they didn’t have adults to care for them.

    Next time you see pictures of starving people in a famine consider them carefully.

    Incidently, food is NOT distributed by Americans who haul it in to feed the hungry. The US government does not allow that except for pictures to encourage more donations. The government’s position is that if we give them food they would be grateful to us and hate their government for not helping which could result in revolt. It is better to give their government the food and let them be grateful to their government.

    Oblama is simply of this type. He mentally places himself in the position of those he deals with and decides they will react just as he would in a similiar situation. That is totally wrong and the main reason he keeps screwing up.

    45, like we gave food to several african nations, we gave the food to the government and they in turn sold the food to other countries, let their people die. they used the money to arm their armies and stuff their pockets. where did all the food and money go we sent to haiti, a prime example.

    we should stop throwing away our resources. if a natural disaster hits like in japan or any other country then we should help where we can and then leave. if they don’t allow us to come in and distribute the food so the people get it, we should refuse assistance.

      Exactly. And many times that food goes to feed their military. The US government knows it – and still insists on doing it that way.

        So Obama got bin Ladden and now the funny Repub cnadidates think that Bush should get the credit? All Obama did was make a tactical decision? Obama took perhaps the largest political risk of his presidency by going after bin Ladden w/ a team of Seals,rather than sending in cruise missiles that would have caused civilian casualities and maybe left doubt that it was even bin ladden killed.

        The Repub flacks are not qualified to hold Obama’s coat,let alone dream of being president. Fortunately none will make it to the office,Obama is almost a shoe in for 2012. Eat your hearts out whiners.

            jibbs, believe me, denniso has proved that many, many times over!!!

          • http://naver samurai

            He/she is so into Obama bin Laden, that she has to wash the crap out of his/her hair, due to putting it so far up Obama’s backside. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

          • denniso

            Well,well,just more nonsensical and tasteless comments from the peanut gallery. Just for the record,I don’t ‘love’ any politicians, I respect a few and loathe many. If not for the few good ones we would be in even worse shape.
            Now you can go back to your jibberish.

          Are we smoking weed with robert smith again, hmmm? First of all, take it from someone who knows, cruise missiles strike any target with pinpoint accuracy with no collateral damage. Second, Obama bin Laden get re-elected? He better hope that many of his opponents die before next year. Bachman, Ron Paul, Mitch Daniels, etc, are whipping his little arse all across this country. Who knows duhnisso, we may have our first woman president or vice president in history. Of course, they’ll be Christian, anti-gay, pro life, pro founders, etc, and not the ways of Hillary, Nancy, Michelle, and other wenches currently residing in Washington at this time. Have to also cite some sources! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

          • denniso

            So you’re anti gay…does that mean you are a bigot as well?

          • http://naver samurai

            I’m also anti sharia law and anti terrorist, so does this mean that I’m against muslims in general? No it doesn’t. People that are anti gay tend to be against the lifestyle. Do you think that this election will have some big changes at the White House? What if Michelle Bachman became our first female president, wouldn’t you want her to succeed? Or would you be against her because she is Christian, anti gay, pro life, and all for smaller government? If you answer these questions, please give credible facts and sources and not some crap that is so far out in left field that its standing in the parking lot. The lib, gay loving, baby killing markists will lose big time next year! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

          • denniso

            People like you and Bachman are not po life,just pro unborn life. Her and most others like her favor war and it’s killing,and the death penalty…almost all of you also ignore the lives of the already born babies and children rotting in poverty and abuse…millions and millions of them every year.

          • http://naver samurai

            Not true duhnisso. My wife and I always give to charities, support our local homeless shelter (Faith Mission), and I usually give money to help others, does this count? I’ve even helped some single mothers (about 4 of them) in the past 3 years get jobs. I’m not pro war, you moron! At least I’ve served this country and have seen lots of hot areas around the world, what about you? We are pro-life, protectors of the unborn. Stop with the lib nonsense by saying that we’re not pro life, because people are going hungry around us, that’s a load of crap. You need to be making that popping noise about now, duhnisso. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

          • denniso

            You favor the death penalty,despite the evidence that we have had dozzens of innocent on death row? You favor any war we enter and kill civilians in the process,whether we are in the right or not? You don’t support policies that would feed and clothe kids raised in poverty? How can you call yourself pro life?

          • http://naver samurai

            Denisso, you’re beginning to sound like Rob “Moron” Smith. Pro life deals with the protecting of the unborn. I also don’t believe in handouts or welfare. We should about the self destructive welfare state, sanctifying everyone on it as a victim. We should remind them that this country was built by people who refused to be victims. Hand ups and not hand outs. Is it fair for the average taxpayer to work for the first 6 months of the year, just to pay for welfare programs and hand outs to foreign nationals, never authorized by our Constitution? If poor people need help, they have family, charities, and the church to help them. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

          • denniso

            Why do you feel the need to exaggerate the truth? No one works for the first 6 months to pay for people on welfare! That’s a flatout lie. Look at a chart of gov’t spending and you’ll see that welfare is a very small part of the pie. Defense spending is one of the largest pieces of the budget,but even then,no one pays 50% in federal taxes which is what it would be if it took 6 months to pay all of one’s taxes.
            You throw out myths and cliches like they are truth,and that makes your arguments a joke.

  • Eddie47d

    Samurai; You change names as often as a women changes hair color.Unfortunetly you still have the same nasty attitude.

    • http://naver samurai

      Yes edduh. Samurai 1966 was me also because I made a typing mistake. I don’t really have a nasty attitude. I cheer when the Cubs win a game or make a great play. I always talk with my wife and help her with everything around the house. Play b-ball with my sons, of course I always loose. I love this country and want to see it get back to the ways of our founding fathers, but it seems the libs on this site are just the opposite of everything good and moral. Having to deal with people like that could change your attitude edduh. I just don’t like what the libs stand for, high taxes, handouts, big government, abortion, gays, etc, is this clear enough for you to understand why I may have an “attitude” at times? FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

    Americans are completely ignoring Obama’s disastrous foreign policy in the Middle East. As you should know, Obama is supporting the overthrow of secular governments by the Islamists and threatening to unilaterally recognize Palestine without Israeli consent. This policy will result in the regional nuclear war of Psalm 83 and the annihilation of Arab cities (Amos 1-2), the nuking of Damascus (Isaiah 17:1) and the Aswan Dam, flooding Cairo with radioactive water and dead fish (Ezekiel 29). Egypt will not be inhabited again for forty years [Ezekiel 29:11)…America will not get off lightly (Genesis 12:3). Watch for more natural disasters and earthquakes.
