America has become the laughing stock of the world. Regardless of politucal ideaology, globally we are seen as a joke. We have lost all legitimacey
with our allies and enemies. When will it stop? How else can we be embarrassed nationally and on the world stage? Is this what three inactionable
years as a congressman and community organizer gets us? Perhaps a reflection and education on previous Leaders of the free world and their natioanl
and foreign poilcy is needed. While no one has been perfect their previous experience certainly did not veil there eyes to how the world operates.
Here are a few quotes to drive frustration...
"speak softly, and carry a big stick" -Pres. Theodore Roosevelt (attributed to an African proverb)
"Domestic policy can only defeat us; foreign policy can kill us." -Pres. John F. Kennedy
"No foreign policy - no matter how ingenious - has any chance of success if it is born in the minds of a few and carried in the hearts of none."
-Hon. Henry A Kissinger, Sec. of State
“Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations...entangling alliances with none” -Pres. Thomas Jefferson
“When the president during the campaign said he was against nation building, I didn't realize he meant our nation.” -Al Franken, Sen.
“Europeans have always thought of U.S. presidents as either naive, as they did with Jimmy Carter, or as cowboys, as they did with Lyndon Johnson,
and held them in contempt in either case.” -George Friedman, Poli Sci
"When I meet with world leaders, what's striking -- whether it's in Europe or here in Asia..." -Pres. Barrack Obama (mistakenly referring to
Hawaii as Asia while holding a press conference outside Honolulu, Nov. 16, 2011)
“Where does America stand? Indeed that is the question of the moment." -Hon. Condoleezza Rice, Sec. of State
“President Obama has thrown allies like Israel under the bus, even as he has relaxed sanctions on Castro’s Cuba. He abandoned our friends in
Poland by walking away from our missile defense commitments, but is eager to give Russia’s President Putin the flexibility he desires, after the
election. Under my administration, our friends will see more loyalty, and Mr. Putin will see a little less flexibility and more backbone.” -Mitt
Romney, Pres. Candidate
"If we do not have the strength or vision to lead, then other powers will take our place, pulling history in a very different direction." - Mitt
Romney, Pres. Candidate
