Do you believe President Obama's foreign policy has been effective?
Policy had nothing to do with that. Simply made a decision. The Patriot Act was the policy that helped find Osama. Props to Obama for doing what needed to be done.
Really? His foreign policy hasn't been effective? His foreign policy helped get rid of Osama Bin Laden. How is that not effective?
salli7 President Clinton actually tried to get to BinLaden hut the press and the republicans called wagging the dog. You must have a fuzzy memory.
Wow, over 80% of democrats don't realize that Obama has been MORE militaristic than BUSH who they vastly disagreed with. He didn't even want to end Iraq war but had to because of BUSH agreement. Secret kill lists, surge in Afghanistan, increased drone attacks, countless innocent victims, etc.
I just don't understand how it is that the majority of Americans don't like Obama's policies and don't approve of him, but they are still willing to keep him in office. I think that the American people have sunken to an all-time low in character and integrity. Or was that a little too honest?
Foreign policy...he talked people to death...seems effective. How about ignore them. We don't need political friends. We need reliable allies who don't want to bomb us.
Foreign policy yes.....domestic policy....NO
So, riddle me this ... why is it that MrO doesn't blame Mr Bush for the killing of bin Laden?
Ranks ... with your view on MrO, it is curious that you would call Independents uninformed. You really can't be serious to think that MrO is respected around the world, except maybe in Norway.
What makes you think Obama is respected? What I read in the foreign press is that he is not considered qualified for the office and they don't "get" why we elected him.
Got ZERO applause at the UN the other day...
This is a time I have 2 go at my independents. Really?!? Do u guys really believe that or are you guys once again not pay attention. I love my independents but they usually are the most un-informed bunch. Obama is respected around than world more than any other president since Ronald Reagan. Wake up
The world thinks the US is weak again. We've had three terrorist attacks on our soil, two embassies overrun and an ambassador killed. Obama got no respect at the UN either. Even Bill Clinton retaliated for the Lockerbie bombing. I doubt Romney would roll over like this.
You call the Muslim brotherhood in egypt our friend. Delusional...
No, 911 was clintons fault. He was offered bin laden and declined.
We will under Obama. It's coming
They attacked first. We must defend. The list is long: Lockerbie. Hostage crisis. USS Cole. Lebanon barracks. World trade first bombing under Clinton. World trade 911. Munich massacre. Numerous plane hijackings and cruise ship murder for half a century.
Nothing about Obama has been effective! He is the absolute worst pres. ever!
@ForANewDeal, You mean like the Dems blamed Bush?
What foreign policy?
And give up the fact that our ambassador died Is his fault
If al gore got elected in 2000 you republicans be blaming him for 9/11
I don't know. Really.
Obama haters get real! WAY better than Mitt The Twit. Romney would be even more of an embarrassment than W was!!
Sure it's not a ddos from the white house?
BwaHahAhHahA. One kids.
Obama, in touch with world leaders? Hahaha... That's why today was the first time he's spoken to the president of Libya since Ambassador Stevens was killed by a mob retaliating for the killing-by-drone of an Libyan member of al Qaeda. Can't get fresh intel by remote control killings.
I didn't know he had a foreign policy....
Oh no! It's a Q2K crisis!!
I suspected the 1000+ comments were causing tonight's server problem. the new commenting features need some optimization. sorry :-(
Please! He postponed it three times until Hillary told him go for it. You know I would have given him credit until they took it to the TV and invited Hollywood in, every time he talks about it he says I did this or I authorized that, can't stand him at all. Our military did it all!
Where'd the Obama or Romney question go?
Maybe Obama had it deleted
Anyone who thinks he's done. Good job on foreign policy issues is lying or stupid. Seriously, it's not that difficult to see the obvious if you just open your eyes, liberals.
Otherwise, people just look at you with disdain and contempt.
Withdrew troops from Iraq, killed bin laden, decimated al Qaida leadership with predator missile strikes, supported democratic change in the middle east, created new Asian alliances to help contain china, sabotaged Iran's nuke program, restored the notion of true diplomacy with our allies
@nuwriter, Bush started two wars on credit. So far Obama has continued the shift towards special forces and covert action to combat terrorism while gradually withdrawing conventional military. They have distinctly different styles of diplomacy, how can you call them the same?
Why when moderates in Iran looked for help he turned his back but threw in his support for the Muslim brotherhood take over?
Just because I don't hit you first doesn't mean that I am weak it mean that I have other ways of dealing with you or the problem. I don't need to resort to a savage behavior. But if you want people to act like monkeys then the repubs may want to revisit their thoughts about evolution.
I agree that up to the beginning of the industrial revolution gov't was mainly needed for security and defense. But today we can be anywhere on the planet within 24 hours. We are global & we need the world leaders to communicate about more then safety and defense. We all must co-exist and evolve.
Here's Obamas foreign policy. "I apologize!"
When people's come together to form a government, the primary purpose is for self defense & safety...not to have someone's social mores imposed on others.
How many deaths occurred in WWII as a result of Nevill Chamberlain's projection of weakness.
History has shown that projecting weakness leads to destruction & death.
You all scream about getting government out of your lives but you are perfectly ok with overtaking countries in the name of what security. I call that hypocritical and dillusional
@Think and you think Romneys approach is the way to go. He said it can't be solved and it's not worth his time to attempt because it's useless. At least Mr.O doesn't get shoes thrown at him and bring them to the table to talk. That at least is the start to a very complicated problem
So, imagine the case that just yesterday MrO reinforces his indefensible excuse that the video caused the mob that killed our ambassador; and now one day later the president of Libya says that the film had NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. He called it a pre-planed attack. Why is it MrO continues the lie?
Not even a little bit
Has obama been effective in foreign policy? I think that's a good question for bin laden, can someone tell me his opinion?
Dan, I would rebel if I were treated that way. Or defect.
Romney is linking up at a campaign rally with Mike Rowe, host of the Discover Channel show “Dirty Jobs,” Perfect person to help clean up Obama's mess!
Unholl ... maybe you can't blame MrO, but the rest of the country and the world does. MrO is not the Teflon man that you and other foaming-at-the-mouth liberals think he is. November is coming and the time for the no fault Obama will be over. We need an adult in the Oval Office.
