John Kerry: No, frankly, I don’t think Obama takes enough credit for his foreign-policy successes

posted at 2:01 pm on May 30, 2014 by Erika Johnsen

I thought that this “President Humility Does Not Give Himself Enough Credit” line was just some rather ineptly delivered straw-grasping from a struggling State Department spokesperson, but… apparently not. This is the official stance from the department’s top banana himself, via RCP:

JOHN KERRY: I don’t think the president, frankly, takes enough credit for the successes that are on the table right now.

I mean, if you look at what has happened in Ukraine, the president led an effort to try to keep Europe unified with the United States, to put difficult sanctions on the table. Europe wasn’t thrilled with that but they came along. …

In Syria the president, you know, obviously made his decision to strike Syria, and appropriately sent that decision to Congress. Congress didn’t want to move, but we came up with another solution, which was get all of those chemical weapons out rather than just have one or two days of strike. …

In addition, the president has engaged with Iran. We were on a course to absolute collision where they were building a nuclear system and the world was standing opposed to that. But the president put in place a series of sanctions, a capacity to be able to bring Iran to the table. We are now in the middle of negotiations. …

So I think we are as engaged, more engaged than in any time in American history, and I think that case is there to be fully proven and laid out. And I think –

GWEN IFILL: Yet that’s not the generally held impression.

JOHN KERRY: No, it’s not. And the reason is there is a general, you know, frankly not fully informed, not factual, conventional sort of process that gets played out in the media. And of course there is an industry in Washington today of oppositionism, oppositionists – oppose anything. And the Congress and its current, you know, pace of legislating tells the whole story.

Of course the president’s top diplomat is going to say that his boss’s foreign policy is an especially good one, and Kerry is certainly prone to living in his own fool’s paradise on what that brand of foreign-policy maneuvering can accomplish, but… President Obama doesn’t assign himself enough credit, really? I guess “engagement” without doing much of anything to definitively mitigate or move these Ukraine/Syria/Iran situations is the new benchmark for success — and it doesn’t even matter much, because those petty, obstructionist lawmakers won’t allow him to really execute his vision anyway.

An Obama Administration “success” is the equivalent of a miserable failure for any other prior Administration. This is true in all areas, from foreign policy to the economy to our space program.

p.s. Baghdad Jay may be on his way out.

Some folks say that I’m egotistical.
Hell, I don’t even know what that means.
I guess it has something to do with the way that I

Oh Lord it’s hard to be humble

EvilMonk on May 30, 2014 at 2:32 PM

When your threshold for ‘success’ is so low that it allows the items Kerry listed qualify as ‘successes’… well it seems the new definition of ‘success’ is ‘lame, moderately impotent, uninspiring, but not total failure’.

Syria is a mess, with new allegations of use of chemical weapons coming out. The sanctions against a few Russian politicians are being laughed at within Russia, and Putin is going forward with his activities regardless, whether directly or using his proxies in Ukraine. We’ve been ‘in the middle of negotiations with Iran’ since long before Obama took office, and sanctions are nothing new. Iran has had plenty of practice doing feints to get the US to move, but never has made any significant movement on their side, and Obama is taking the same failed approach the G.W. Bush and his predecessors took, expecting different results.

Claims of success and world leadership on these foreign policy issues are really embarrassing. Not just for the Obama administration, but for all of America.

It makes me think that maybe there is some real mental illness endemic in Washington D.C. these days. Maybe swamp gasses or something? They weren’t all this stupid before they started working there were they?

If one is to take credit for successes one must also take blame for failures. This is why Obama habitually votes “present” on his entire administration.

slickwillie2001 on May 30, 2014 at 3:24 PM

So a “WIN” for an affirmative action president is:

1. Russia only taking over 1/2 of the Ukraine.
2. Keeping Assad in power and putting Putin as a real player in the area.
3. Letting Iran get the bomb.

Notice a complete lack of:
1. Egypt
2. Libya
3. Benghazi

No wonder the mediocre intelligence of Obama got him to the finest college (??) in our nation. As always failure is a resume enhancer for a fascist-democrat.

As Senators, the current “Secretary of State” (and his predecessor, both Democrats), lawfully voted to give full legal authority to those actions you falsely call “illegal”; and when the at the time Junior Senator from New York voted for those “illegal actions” she did so based on the intel briefings she got from her husband’s intel folks.

By the way, her husband’s intel folks’ research also resulted in his Department of Justice legally indicting Usama bin Laden in 1998. In their indictment, they formally charged bin Laden with working in cahoots with Saddam Hussein and the Government of Iraq.
