    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.

    I see nothing worthy of response here, as it lacks a coherent point.

    Oh I agree with you on that. There was no call for that claim. I saw nothing rhinefires post that indicated racism. However rhinefires post was so full of bull**** that I was able to justify thanking one part of Will's post that addressed it.

    This is simply a difference in philosophy between you and I. I believe there is much more strategic benefit to actively seeking good relations with our enemies. A number of posters on this board act like they think that the only posture a U.S. President should take is one of unflinching dominance, projecting nothing but force of will and an unrelenting desire to see the other guy acquiesce.

    That's just plain dumb. Our power is in our ability to project our economic and military will. We don't need to intimidate other world leaders during meetings, stare them down, or outright refuse to speak with them in order maintain our position as a world power. We have "actual power" and nothing Obama is doing when attempting to warm relations with theses countries is eroding that.

    Just because he's not following in the Bush's or Reagan's footsteps is not an indicator that he is wrong in what he is doing. This the mid-60's anymore. Getting Cuba to open to the U.S. to any degree is a good thing because it provides opportunity for our influence to spread there. Obama is doing the right thing in pursuing better relations with these nations.

    Military action isn't always the answer.

    There is no "damage" being done here except in your mind. You can't articulate to any demonstrable degree what "damage" is being done by Obama's actions. And your strategy of sending lesser diplomats is not the answer. If you are the President and you want to send a clear foreign policy message to enemy heads of state you do it yourself. You don't treat them like lowly pissants, even if that's what they are in comparison.

    Insanity is to continue doing what we''ve done for decades and expect things to somehow turn out differently.

    Our enemies are cashing in on a naive idealistic fool.
    They all know he will give them more.

    And it's not as though Bush created the tension, despite "fantasies" of a different type. There are places and people who are going to be opposed to, and at odds with, the United States no matter what.

    I agree with you. Obama appears to carry a demeanor of professionalism in his meetings with foreign dignitaries, clearly demonstrating that he is not weak as some would claim.

    If he was actually a weak and foolish president as some claim, he would be too damn scared to even begin to deal with the anti-American foreign leaders, let alone talk to them face to face. If he was weak he would just order sanctions and let 'em rot.

    Sadly, some see diplomacy as weak and prefer we keep raising our fists like brutes instead of trying to resolve our differences through dialog.
    Sen. Clare McCaskill (D-MO) said on Wednesday that Joe Biden "has a tendency to talk forever and sometimes say things that are kind of stupid." She seemed to regret her own words, saying, "I was probably having a Joe Biden moment myself."
