Hillary Clinton isn't mincing words about the current crises in the Middle East. In an interview with The Atlantic, the former secretary of state attributed the "failure" to the U.S. decision not to intervene in the early days of the Syrian civil war. The result is a number of al Qaeda-inspired offshoots wreaking havoc in Syria and Iraq. Clinton suggested that Obama's foreign policy has been too cautious, addressing the president's doctrine of "Don't do stupid stuff," saying: “Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle.” She also spoke of the Israel-Hamas situation, expressing support for Israel's need to defend itself. www.thedailybeast.com...
On Obama’s self-described foreign policy doctrine — “Don’t do stupid #,” or “Don’t do stupid stuff,” Clinton was blunt. “Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle,” she said. “… I think [Obama] was trying to communicate to the American people that he’s not going to do something crazy. I’ve sat in too many rooms with the president. He’s thoughtful, he’s incredibly smart, and able to analyze a lot of different factors that are all moving at the same time. I think he is cautious because he knows what he inherited, both the two wars and the economic front, and he has expended a lot of capital and energy trying to pull us out of the hole we’re in.” Read more: www.politico.com...

she could stand there with Obamas beating heart in her fist and I still wouldn't vote for her..
Anyone that is so desperate to have the power shouldn't have it.. and No I haven't seen anyone on the republican side that's any better.

Hilary was a big part of Obama's failed foreign policy.
She is going to have to own that before the next election is over.

That was my first thought, since Obama middle eastern relations and procedures has fallen into crap, I got my own belief as why, but I would not talk about that right now, beside that I have to say that I did like Carter he was likeable and he was all for peace, Obama, well he does lean to be more friendly to terrorist "certain groups" that any other president before him, his legacy will always be seen with a question mark about his true loyalties to the US nation.
