    The MSM just won't criticize this guy, right? Take a look...

    Obama's Foreign Policy in a Tailspin

    (CNN) -- America's foreign policy has gone into a tailspin. Almost every major initiative from the Obama administration has run into sharp, sometimes embarrassing, reverses. The U.S. looks weak and confused on the global stage.

    This might come as happy news to some opponents of the administration who enjoy seeing Barack Obama fail, but it shouldn't.

    America's failure in international strategy is a disaster-in-the-making for its allies and for the people who see the U.S. model of liberal democracy as one worth emulating in their own nations.

    [...]

    Trying to count the ways in which foreign policy has gone badly for Obama makes for a stunningly long list.

    CNN also ran a pretty damning report on Benghazi. It's about time. I think CNN is tired of its poor ratings. You won't see much of this on MessNBC, not yet.

    Not only the ratings but because of the poor ratings I imagine sponsors were pulling back. It looks like covering for Obama was costing them money. They see the ratings Fox has and has decided to actually do what the press is supposed to do.

    The article says his foreign policy is in a tail spin, but it's not all his fault. Bush and Putin are to blame as well as anyone else who won't listen to him.

    Hardly a criticism. More of a defense.

    Or as Rush says: they've committed a random act of journalism.

    Somehow Obama's problems pale in significance with GW Bush's who started two completely unjustified wars and didn't pay for them thereby doubling our debt.

    The war in Afghanistan was unjustified, you say?

    Yes, under Bush debt doubled from about $6T to $12T (or 100% in 8 years), but then Obama took it from $12T to $16T (or 33% in 3 years), and is projected to hit $22T (83% increase in 6 years) by 2015. They are both culpable.

    Yes the "war" in Afghanistan is unjustified. Imagine the police dept burning your city down to capture a few gang members that were suspected of a crime. Would that be justified?

    CNN will never tell the truth about "Obama's foreign policy". The truth is it isn't Obama's foreign policy at all. You want to know who's foreign policy it really is follow the money back to who benefits the most from it.

    Why do people try to justify Bush's unconstitutional illegal acts by saying Obama has done worse? Yeah so he has but so what how does that let Bush off the hook?

    It's the same as saying . . .

    "You got a mad dog because he bit 3 children, oh yeah well my dog is justified because your mad dog bit 7 children". Doh!

    That is not even close to what happened.

    Yeah yer right. Sort of. The neocons never did capture the people they claimed to be after in Afghanistan. But hey they're buddies got some real juicy contracts and they put their internationalist puppet in power. All is good now that the opium is flowing again and the endless profits from endless wars. How sweet it is . . . for a few.

    I bet the big banks that launder all the drug money are happier than a "camel on Wednesday" that the opium is flowing freely. Doing business with the Mexican and Latin drug cartels is all fine and dandy but how muxh sweeter it must be to add Afhgan opium into the game.

    Al Qeada is about the most useful tool the globlists own. When it isn't being used to justify unconstitutional illegal immoral wars and destroying our constitutional republic and our liberties it's being used to topple "uppity" regimes.

    Good thing for the globalists that Americans can't see the symbiotic relationship between Al Qeada and the hijacked corporatist US government.
