Cheney: This is just the “logical outcome of three-and-a-half years of Obama foreign policy”

posted at 11:21 am on September 13, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

I just wanted to take a moment to draw your attention to this particular op-ed, because… dang. Former Bush-administration State Department official Liz Cheney is going straight for the jugular with this one, and it is as damning an account of President Obama’s foreign policy failures as I’ve read.

In March 2009, at an Americas summit meeting in Mexico City, President Obama listened as Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega delivered a venomous diatribe against America. Mr. Obama stood to speak and accepted Mr. Ortega’s version of history. “I’m very grateful,” Mr. Obama said, “that President Ortega didn’t blame me for things that happened when I was three months old.”

In April 2009, in France, Mr. Obama proclaimed that America must make deep cuts in its nuclear arsenal because only then would the country have “the moral authority to say to Iran, don’t develop a nuclear weapon, to say to North Korea, don’t proliferate nuclear weapons.” Embracing the leftist fallacy that the key to world peace is for the U.S. to pre-emptively disarm, the president has reportedly begun reviewing options to take our nuclear stockpile to levels not seen since 1950. These are steps you take only if you believe that America—not her enemies—is the threat. …

If you really want to know whether our adversaries fear us, ask the Russians, whose thuggish President Putin essentially endorsed Mr. Obama recently. Perhaps Mr. Putin is banking on the missile defense “flexibility” Mr. Obama promised he would have after the election.

The president says he “ended the war in Iraq” and is “ending the war in Afghanistan.” If only wishing made it so. A better description of what Mr. Obama is doing in Iraq and Afghanistan is rushing for the exits. … He is so busy retreating that we are likely to leave in a our wake a failed state where the Taliban and terrorist organizations like al Qaeda can once again operate.

As Cheney points out, most of President Obama’s dealings on the international stage have been nothing short of a string of groveling apologies and attempts to weaken America and fall back to everybody else’s impuissant level, instead of us telling them what’s up, because apparently we don’t have to “moral authority” to do so. Wow. There are real and growing existential threats in this world, but the president has targeted military cuts before entitlement reform, appeased hostile foreign bodies, and willfully diminished America’s authority — and while we (rightfully) tend to be more preoccupied with more insular concerns, it’s important not to forget that this president’s policies abroad haven’t been any better for America than his domestic ones.

As Larry Sabato tweeted this morning,

 

 

While chaos reigns in the Middle East at the moment, a lot of this is likely to settle into the background again before long, and we’ll be back to our regularly-scheduled presidential campaign program. But if the Obama campaign is so bent on producing distractions, and if this does happen to escalate into something bigger, there is really no good reason why a foreign-policy related issue at the forefront should be of any help whatsoever to President Obama (or at least, in theory, there shouldn’t be any good reason, but when the mainstream media has already made up their minds… ugh). The majority of Obama’s foreign-policy ‘strategy’ has been absolutely awful, and Romney was right to capitalize on the moment to point that out. The economy may be Obama’s greatest weakness, but it couldn’t hurt to remind America that his commander-in-chiefdom has been nothing short of embarrassing and endangering, too. Again, if only the media hadn’t already decided which direction this is going to go. Blergh.

I think what a lot of people misunderstand is that Obama has been to and lived in other countries that don’t have large budgets for their military and well, everything seemed peaceful to him.

But what he overlooks is the reason other countries can spend so little on their military is because the United States spends so much.

We protect those European nations. Our presence there keeps all the ambitious and ruthless dictators pause for thought.

Obama doesn’t see that. He cannot connect the dots on that simple equation.

Sabato is a smart guy, but he has no idea how this is playing. This will not wrap around support for the president because he is the one responsible for the mess. To the extent this has legs, it hurts Obama because it shows the falacy of his policy, which has CHamberlain-esque levels of appeasement with a rush to the exits.

That won’t play well. The hostage crisis hut Carter for sure, but the failed helocopter rescue was the hammer, as it dealt with his failure to deal with the situation.

This is Obama’s danger, because he doesn’t like doing things and this is going to require at least saying the right things, which so far he has not. It opens another Romney attack line – “Not only is the economy terrible and getting no better, but now the WH’s pronouncements of an Arab Spring are just hot air, completely devoid of an understanding of reality. This administration failed to understand what they were doing, and the factors in pplay. And in their incompetence, they allowed 4 Americans to be killed. This adminstration is unable to performa ny of its duties to any level of satisfaction. Time for something beyond hope and change.”

What kind of fool thinks Obama is an improvement over the bi-partisan foreign policies of the last 70 years?… Now the media and idiot left praise appeasement and groveling as a grand new way to address the world..

I enlisted near the end of that fool Carter’s reign of teh stupid… and had the luck to serve under a real president.. all because of Carter’s/Obama’s ignorance..

ORconservative on September 13, 2012 at 11:40 AM

Int’l chaos favors incumbent POTUS short-term. Yet events can spin in many different directions.

Larry is wrong and the only reason this is trending for the President at all is the obedient, lap-dog media coverage.

As Cheney notes. this President has trampled our traditional allies and put people that have nothing but contempt for us in charge. His high-minded, contra-intellectual attempts in the Middle East have now gotten Americans killed and his reckless, foolish actions have brought about this chaos.

Like it or not America is a balancing power. We project that power to make ourselves a better place.

Weakness begets attacks as people try to nimble at your existence. The world now sees us as weak under Mr. Obama and these attacks are only the beginning of their tests against our current weakness.

What Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton don’t understand is that there will always be people who loath and hate you no matter what. It could be your religion, skin color, religious beliefs or collective ideals. That hate is motivated by an evil that has existed since the beginning of time and it’s going nowhere fast.

They have nurtured and encouraged that evil in an attempt to “bring America down to size”- a product of their political philosophy. But what has been done in reality is to make America weaker, less respected and ultimately more dangerous.

So Mr. Sabato might think that too intellectual or sophisticated for the average voter to understand or care about. But in reality they do, may not be able to explain it on those terms, but know it intuitively. And it will matter in the greater context of things come November. You can count on it.

EVERYONE should call his/her senator and rep and raise Hell about the MSM – and the fact that Obama is wrong and Romney is correct. Capitol Hill switchboard is 202-224-3121.

This is important, because the MSM is like a dog with a bone. CNN commentators this morning were still arguing with guests who supported Romney and US interests.

That said, Romney should give a larger foreign policy address next week that helps Americans connect the dots — including his energy proposals.

We have repeatedly seen that when Romney goes on offense (Medicare, Ryan, Egypt, energy), he gains in the polls. When he drifts and plays “nice guy,” he drops in the polls.

Dante and Verbaluce are trained seals. They are conditioned to spew hatred based on code words. When somebody throws up the name Cheney, then Dante has a whole moronic riff about foreign interventionism (a subject he is utterly clueless about). HA threw them for a loop by the reference to a different Cheney than the one they’ve been taught to hate.

And Cheney tries to absolve himself of any of the blame.

No, Dick, this is the result of 60+ years of interventionist foreign policy.

Dante on September 13, 2012 at 11:30 AM

Heh, you’re the Dick, she’s Liz Cheney…

In my case, a typo.
I am not clever.

verbaluce on September 13, 2012 at 11:38 AM

Um, no. A typo involves reversing two words or transposing letters. Swapping names, as well as using appropriate pronouns, is not a typo.

Romney has an opening to totally blister Obama on this stuff in the debate, which is the last one. I hope he is prepared to do it. Tha facts and arguments are certainly on his side.

rockmom on September 13, 2012 at 11:46 AM

Uh….yeah, then there’s this:

U.S. Marines defending the American embassy in Egypt were not permitted by the State Department to carry live ammunition, limiting their ability to respond to attacks like those this week on the U.S. consulate in Cairo.

Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson “did not permit US Marine guards to carry live ammunition

Heh, verbaluce is never smart.

Heh, on those of you who thought that my take on the polls was self-serving. The land is so much bigger and more important than any of us.

I like Paul Ryan and all, but I said during the primaries that Mitt needed a VP with foreign policy chops, and that Liz should have been on the short list. Damn, I hope she gets a job in Romney’s administration.

KOOLAID2 on September 13, 2012 at 11:49 AM

While Marines are typically relied on to defend U.S. territory abroad, such as embassies, these reports indicate that the Obama administration was relying on Egypt’s new Muslim Brotherhood-backed government to ensure American security

Feel safer?

Bishop, thanks for the ‘shocker’.

The land seems to be lost for good.

The 7th century savages will capture the world, with utter brute force, no ammo, and the stupidity of the West, lambs heading for the slaughter, volens.

I think the GOP needs to run with the meme that ALL this chaos was generated by Obama and the DNC spiking the ball and crowing over their killing of Osama Bin Laden. That was unforgivably ugly of them, right Hillary? I mean, you can’t ridicule Muslims, right Hillary?

BettyRuth on September 13, 2012 at 11:44 AM

VegasRick on September 13, 2012 at 11:50 AM

I can see how someone might confuse Liz and Lynne Cheney. But not Dick and Liz Cheney.

Bitter Clinger on September 13, 2012 at 11:43 AM

Wait a few more minutes. Those two will be confusing Liz and Dick Cheney with Liz Taylor and Richard (Dick) Burton.

BettyRuth on September 13, 2012 at 11:44 AM

I think there is some validity to the idea that the Dems brought on this violence. Obama has been strutting around for months proud of “getting” Osama as if he personally led the SEAL team into that compound. It was a repeated theme at their convention in Charlotte with chants of USA-USA-USA….. when biden talked about Obama “getting” Osama. It was no coincidence that those who were attacking our embassies this week were chanting “Obama we are all Osamas.”

If Barak Hussein Obama was responsible for getting Osama, then he clearly is equally responsible for the death of those four Americans and the disintigration of stability in the Middle East. Let’s make him own it.

I thought that too. Running around spiking the ball with his “I got Osama” isn’t the brightest thing to do…

Elizabeth Cheney (who wrote the essay) is really her husband? Can you please explain how that happened, or do you liberals just read a headline and go with a set script for the keywords you see in it?

Liam on September 13, 2012 at 11:37 AM

Liz Cheney is a Republican woman, which means that she does not think for herself but depends on her husband for all thought. Only liberal women are capable of thinking and expressing their opinion. s/

Jvette on September 13, 2012 at 11:53 AM

So I guess this means Liz is the New Darth Cheney??? Kind of like the way the Dread Pirate Roberts is a franchise???
