Could Anyone Be Worse on Foreign Policy Than Obama?

No one could be worse on foreign policy than the “post-American” Barack Hussein Obama — with one possible exception, as John Bolton explains:

When it comes to foreign policy, Ron Paul is arguably psychotic — as he demonstrated when he took to the House floor to proclaim that Hamas is an Israeli plot.

However, the most immediate threat to American security comes not from other countries but from another world: the hostile alien world found within the DC Beltway. Since Paul would at least make an effort to stop the spending juggernaut before it inevitably leads to total economic collapse, even he would be an improvement on devoted statists like Obama and Gingrich.

On tips from Shawn.

    Call me crazy, but why didn’t we offer them to vote wether or not to become a US territory with a path to become a US State?

    Anywhooo, Ron Paul. Hands off interacting with other countries and onsiders enforcing our borders unrealistic.


    I miss Herman Cain. Is it to late to get COL West to run?

  2. Screwy Puppy says:

    Oops, “whether.” “Wether” is a castrated male sheep.

    ( I really feel singular for sheep should be “shop.” Good thing I have no say. I would screw the English language up more than it already is. )

    I can’t believe that this topic hasn’t been overrun by Ron Paul lunatics yet…they must be busy.

    John Bolton is psychotic. We can’t afford his brand of big spending.

    If any of the hawks want to step up into that mean 35% tax bracket so Bolton can play his chess game and the rest of the world can be free riders on our blood and treasure, then be my guest. 35% is bad enough; it was 39.6% before the Bush tax cuts.

    A lot of people are done busting their asses for the benefit of others, whether those others are in a welfare ghetto here, an art studio in Europe, a pet project in the Middle East, or our #2 foreign creditor in Asia.

    Bolton is an asshole. I’ll take him seriously when he files an Israeli tax return.

    Job creators are sick and tired of paying top dollar to stand in somebody else’s firing line.

    If people can go Galt to shake off the looters and moochers at home then they can also do it to shake off the looters and moochers abroad.

    So, the Speaker of the House that managed to get a balanced budget for the federal government, despite a Democratic President in office, is a statist?

    The same guy that managed to pass welfare reform despite three Clinton vetoes?

    He’s a statist?

    Who would you prefer our candidate to be this year Romney? Because that’s what we’re stuck with if we disqualify Gingrich.

  6. AC says:

    Newt didn’t balance the budget, not as Speaker, and certainly not with the big government moonbattery he supported since then.

    Medicare Part D, insurance mandates, ethanol, socialized mortgages, TARP, goofy tax credit meddling – the list goes on.

    That qualifies him as a statist.

    There’s an old joke which is appropriate here: a group of people were sitting around a dinner table, when all of a sudden one of the husbands asks one of the wives, “Would you have sex for a million dollars?”

    After thinking about it, she responds, “Well, yes, it is a million dollars.” Then, he asks her “Would you have sex for five dollars?”

    She responds, “Of course not! I am no whore.”

    He replies, “Oh, we’ve already established what you are, now we’re just haggling over price.”

    Newt is a big government loving technocratic progressive statist, as is Obama, and as is Romney. We’re merely arguing over degree.

  7. Agnostic Conservative says:

    Newt balanced the budget the same way Bernie Madoff did. 😉

    He and Slick Willy raided the social security trust fund to shift the numbers.

    The FACT that you BELIEVE that the budget was balanced makes me laugh at the sorry state of affairs in this country.

    And you are VOCIFEROUS about your defense of that progressive Republican Newt Gingrich. LOL.

  8. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    This is one aria where I actually agree with you AC, and Paul.
    With those images of those bombed buildings, they are exposing the folly of nation building.
    (This is Bush’s withdrawal timetable ).
    At the end Bolton says the first duty of the president is to defend this country. What ? By policing Iraq forever ?
    And I would even agree to close SOME foreign bases.
    But as they say, the best defense is a good offense, or in this case the capability for it.
    Our ships and subs should patrol everywhere possible. Our spy planes and satellites and drones should be on constant duty. We need a looking glass on our enemy at all times.
    If the people of Iran blame us for their misery, so be it. Sooner or later they will have to look within.
    If Iraqis, and Afghans wish to play Sharia roulette, hit them hard at the first sign they are packing the caravan to take it on the road. Then get the heck out.
    I think this is an example of nervous neocons, who are desperately trying to differentiate themselves from the Dems, and their identical (in tactics if not geographic) foreign policies.

    Ron Paul’s desire to legalize marijuana is also psychotic. Just say no.

  10. A. Levy says:

    “Those who seek absolute power, even though they seek it to do what they regard as good, are simply demanding the right to enforce their own version of heaven on earth. And let me remind you, they are the very ones who always create the most hellish tyrannies. Absolute power does corrupt, and those who seek it must be suspect and must be opposed. Their mistaken course stems from false notions of equality, ladies and gentlemen. Equality, rightly understood, as our founding fathers understood it, leads to liberty and to the emancipation of creative differences. Wrongly understood, as it has been so tragically in our time, it leads first to conformity and then to despotism…”

  11. chuck in st paul says:

    Saying we spend 43% of the planet’s defense expenditure is another dip$hit statistic. It’s all in the emphasis. It just means that the rest of the lazy asses have been wasting their money on a welfare state and putting the onus on America to do the heavy lifting.

    It is analogous to the welfare state in America. A bunch of lazy asses want to pick the pockets of those who actually go to work and create wealth. Then they sit back and throw rocks AT the successful folks. The Euroweenies have been doing it for sixty years now. We should have LET the Russians have the Euroweenies. It would have served both sides right.

  12. chuck in st paul says:

    Rich, I disagree. This is a medical issue that has been turned into a legal issue. If we had just made it a public medical issue we’d have spent 10% of what the War on Drugs cost us and more than half the prison population would NOT be behind bars.

    Prohibition has NEVER worked in the entire history of mankind. Ever.
