He brought Biden on because he was a "foreign policy expert". The smart move is to send in Joe to handle these second rate dictators. The circus atmosphere they bring to the table shouldn't involve the POTUS.
What an embarrasment in front of the whole world.
Pain can be such a beautiful thing
I believe Populism as a foreign policy.

More and more, Obama is demonstrating his apparently complete lack of understanding of history or political context.
I'd bet he has no idea who he's even talking to south of Chicago.
This is what you get when you believe the world is full of nice people who would only be nice to us and everyone else if mean old America weren't such gigantic doody-heads.
2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.
Pres Doofus has shown time and again he is in over his head.
His statement, 'I'm grateful that President Ortega did not blame me for things that happened when I was three months old.', about Ortega's diatribe tells you all you need to know about him.
He has shown he is willing to trash the US if he thinks it will make people like him more. He takes narcissism to a whole 'nuther level.
It's not as though Bush himself was widely beloved in those circles, aside from homoerotic fantasies about seeing into Putin's soul. Years of tension don't just disappear overnight, just because we finally have a sane president.
Obama simply doesn't have a back-slapping frat-boy personality. His attitude toward foreign relations seems much more down-to-business. There's nothing wrong with that.Originally Posted by Reverend_Hellh0und

Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.

Obama is foolish, weak, and the despots of the world know it.
He may not...
He may be ignorant of the fact his attempts at it have been futile at best... failed being more accurate. He gets style points, but that's about all he ever gets.
Just as it took him a full twenty years and a political campaign for president for him to come to realize Rev. Wright is poisonous (something Americans realized in less than two weeks)... it might take a series of events to educate the President's teleprompteur that "it" has hit the fan.
I AM DEPLORABLE.
