    Barack Obama has managed to insult three close allies – all in one week

    Someone is calling out Obama for his lame foreign policy. He is so destructive to established allies and this blog post doesn't even mention Britain or France. Obama is dangerous.

    Barack Obama has managed to insult three close allies – all in one week – Telegraph Blogs

    Last week was a really bad week for nations that are friends and allies of America. Three nations that have long been close friends and allies of America received humiliating treatment from the Obama administration.

    Israel...

    Poland...

    Honduras...

    Alienating three close allies in one week is quite a trick, even for a president as inept in foreign policy as Barack Obama. However, it fits a pattern. President Obama has never shown any understanding for the basic rules of foreign policy which include cultivating allies, avoiding unnecessary friction, and doing one’s homework. These things happen because Obama is fundamentally uninterested in foreign policy. It is part of a pattern that began when Obama was elected to the Senate. In 2007 his party made him the chairman of the Senate subcommittee on Europe so Obama could claim foreign policy experience for his presidential run in 2008. Yet even though Obama’s committee had oversight of such vital issues as the U.S. relationship to NATO and the EU, Obama never held Senate hearings and his committee contributed no reports or played any role in setting policy. Few senate committee chairs have ever shown less interest in the work.

    In his career in the Senate and as president, Obama enjoyed his foreign trips when it is all about him – such as receiving the Nobel Prize or basking in the adulation of the Euromasses. But rarely has a president had so much foreign travel with so little substance to show for it. So far, Obama shows no talent for learning on the job – so America’s friends should brace for more weeks like this one.
    Comments by PowerLine:
    I think that's right, but it's actually a bit worse than that. Not only is Obama mostly uninterested in foreign policy, but his instincts are bad because at bottom, he doesn't believe in advancing America's interests. Moreover, perhaps because of his own jaundiced view of American history, he seems to be instinctively contemptuous of people and nations that are pro-American. The results of Obama's foreign policy are therefore worse than could be obtained through sheer laziness or disinterest.

    I agree with your assessment. He's like a babe in the woods.

    ADK says Obama will be the greatest president in history, I guess this won't count.

    Only if the goal is to tear this country down to 3rd world status, then he would be rated above Jimmy Carter.

    Remember Obama claimed his judgment was vastly superior?

    This is literaly astonishing how completly void of direction his foreign policy is.
    He has no convictions other than he is peace minded with out being goal oriented or having a clear grasp of history or our enemys Motivations or their
    aspirations.Has he ever said a bad thing to anyone who wasnt our ally?
