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 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

What was it they were saying about being smart with “soft power”?

The guy who sold himself as the muslim sensitive president with God like powers of influence in the world, because he’s nicer than those evil republicans…..

tried to cement his security cred

by doubling down on drone strikes, and the resulting pile of civilian deaths in collateral damage.. insulted muslims in the ME by repeatedly spiking the football on Obama and smirking about his kill lists.. and personally signing off on each one..

Bush never crowed.. never danced on the corpses like Obama..

yet the media thinks Obama is the civilized one?

The Muslim sensitive president they just love over there?

The Obama left and the media’s cognitive dissonance is astonishing.

Well….cruised through Cnn….CBS…ABC and the Washington post to see if any of them are reporting on the fact that Obama left our people without security in an al-qaeda hot bed where our intel had warned over and over and over that there would be attacks…and after already having been attacked in June….

Nothing…nothing about skipping out on intel briefings…..nothing about the fact that Obama’s own White House agrees with Romney on his statement…..

…it’s all about “Romney’s bad move on jumping the gun”…..

(link via NOMOBO on September 13, 2012 at 11:34 AM)

The Washington Post runs a headline that states ”
Mr. Romney’s rhetoric on embassy attacks is a discredit to his campaign”

…but apparently OBama ignoring multiple warnings about attacks and leaving an Embassy without security in an al-qaeda hot bed is not a “discredit to Obama’s Foreign policy genius”……

unbelievable….

All Romney….all Romney’s fault:

look at the sidebar stories:

Top 3:

1.Mitt Romney has mess to clean up after falsely accusing Obama on Libya
2.Mr. Romney’s rhetoric on embassy attacks is a discredit to his campaign
3.Fact-checkers fillet Romney’s ‘apology’ charge

Nothing there about the incompetence of the Obama administration and Hillary.

What a shameful and disgusting example of how far the media has fallen in this country.

Liz needs to be reminded of the attacks on consulates and embassies during the Bush presidency. The entire area is a mess, has been for hundreds of years, and will be for the foreseeable future no matter who the president is.

I presume that Liz could make the same argument she makes against Obama, against Bush Cheney. The following is a list of the attacks against US embassies and consulates during the Bush presidency;

June 14, 2002, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
Suicide bomber kills 12 and injures 51.
February 20, 2003, international diplomatic compound in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Truck bomb kills 17.
February 28, 2003, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
Gunmen on motorcycles killed two consulate guards.
July 30, 2004, U.S. embassy in Taskkent, Uzbekistan
Suicide bomber kills two.
December 6, 2004, U.S. consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
Militants stormed and occupied perimeter wall. Five killed, 10 wounded.
March 2, 2006, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
Suicide car bomber killed four, including a U.S. diplomate directly targeted by the assailants.
September 12, 2006, U.S. embassy in Damascus, Syria
Gunmen attacked embassy with grenades, automatic weapons, and a car bomb (though second truck bomb failed to detonate). One killed and 13 wounded.
January 12, 2007, U.S. embassy in Athens, Greece
A rocket-propelled grenade was fired at the embassy building. No one was injured.
July 9, 2008, U.S. consulate in Istanbul, Turkey
Armed men attacked consulate with pistols and shotguns. Three policemen killed.
March 18, 2008, U.S. embassy in Sana’a, Yemen
Mortar attack misses embassy, hits nearby girls’ school instead.
September 17, 2008, U.S. embassy in Sana’a, Yemen
Militants dressed as policemen attacked the embassy with RPGs, rifles, grenades and car bombs. Six Yemeni soldiers and seven civilians were killed. Sixteen more were injured.

Blergh, indeed.

Looking at it straight, what a coincidence that the only two posters who fell for Erika’s little trap were Dante and verbaluce – two of the most egregious knee-jerk shills on here.

Some of us actually read the posts, think about them, and give an honest reponse.

Others never get out of spaghetti-throwing mode.

cane_loader on September 13, 2012 at 12:37 PM

Yup, Ericka so totally Bishop’d them that even Bishop is awed… ;)

Romney needs to make Liz his speech writer… and his senior policy advisor.

petefrt on September 13, 2012 at 12:01 PM

As I said in the headline comments, I hope she’s appointed to a senior position in his administration. And there will be one – in spite of the MSM panic to focus on Romney’s “gaffes”, the American people can see what’s happening. The parallels to Jimmah Carter are just too obvious. This is Obama’s “Emperor has no clothes” moment. Barring some horrible mistake by Romney, the election will be a landslide rebuke of the Tool in Chief.

peski on September 13, 2012 at 12:47 PM

But you likely need to often view mistakes that way.

verbaluce on September 13, 2012 at 12:02 PM

Could some one explain to me exactly what this means?

There are so many adverbs in that one sentence I can hardly read it.

Tenwheeler on September 13, 2012 at 12:48 PM

Remember the two Open Registrations we had? Not all have been posting since then. The Obots/Trolls are biding their time. It will get so bad here, reading HA will be aggravating. I saw it happen on a very popular forum/blog in 2008. Destroyed it.

I like the way C4P handle their Guest posts….Comment Removed, LOL

Even those that are Registered are given a difficult time if they get too stupid:-)

bluefox on September 13, 2012 at 12:48 PM

Pretty shocking that this is Dick Cheney’s take.
Let us know if Liz Cheney says anything –
be very curious to see how she views all this.

verbaluce on September 13, 2012 at 11:31 AM

This is why some posters are called trolls.

Since our gov’t doesn’t want to rile up the protesters or hurt their feelings I suppose Biden can no longer scream “Osama is dead, Osama is dead”.

If Obama can’t spike the football anymore what else do they have.
Can’t brag about the success of Arab Spring/Libya/Egypt.

Since the protesters are “all Osama now” won’t that Hollywood movie about killing OBL hurt their feelings?

“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. ”

Dave Rywall on September 13, 2012 at 12:00 PM

So you are as big a halfwit as the others have said..

You didn’t explain WHY it’s not the stone cold truth… just spouted off at your displeasure Obama’s Carter heavy foreign policy is such a huge steaming pile, and we can plainly see it…

You’re one of those Carter apologists aren’t you?

He was a blithering idiot then, and now, with the added touch his hate for the evil Jooos is out of the closet..

Obama is an aspiring blithering idiot who seems to think that speeches asserting how much he understands the muslim streets rage, and that unfortunate 1st Amendment which allows the OTHER Americans to say things muslims don’t like..

Haven’t seen the movie.. and I don’t care what’s in it.. only a complete moron would apologize for the ramblings in a youtube video and only that same moron would excuse the attacks on our embassies because of it.

and yes spellcheck.. I know I’m supposed to type muslim with an M.. but F*** them..

Anyone still want to tell us that Romney = Obama? Well, where are you idiots?

Cowards.

But most of us already knew that.

You phucking imbecile… That was Liz Cheney, not Dick…

SWalker on September 13, 2012 at 11:32 AM

They know that- it’s their very clever way of saying that Dick Cheney is putting words in Liz’s mouth. And yes, he still is a phucking imbecile.

BettyRuth on September 13, 2012 at 11:36 AM

You give them too much credit. They’re just morons.

kim roy on September 13, 2012 at 1:25 PM

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/

Dick is her father. geez people.

VegasRick on September 13, 2012 at 11:55 AM

I thought that with the snark tag attached that jvette was qouting one of those clueless liberal types that shoots off their mouth prior to engaging their brain.
When looking at it that way, it makes perfect sense.

Hey, I’m glad you’re here. I missed your response to my question yesterday:

Could you contrast CONSERVATIVE PM Harper’s removal of his Iranian embassy staff to Obama diddling along and letting four of his die in Libya?

If you could answer it here for me it’d be appreciated. Thanks!
