Obama and his egotism thinking he is the only one in the world that understands foreign problems needs to be defeated handily in the November elections before he causes a major problem with foreign countries, he has already handed Libya and Egypt to the muslim brotherhood and is now intent on handing them Syria, who knows, after that he may hand them Israel as well, he is not to be trusted…….

The last republican president did such a great job of geopolitical stability right? GOP foreign policy of the early 2000 created a lot of the mess we are in today. George Bush was such a polarizing figure that it gave a path to the Putins and Ahmadinejads of the world to counter American unilateralism. These other polarizing figures did not exist until this point (and they rooted their power and have not gone away), where as, Bush went away constitutionally.

In comparison, it seems like the Obama state department does indeed know what its doing when comparing the GOP clowns scrambling to look as right wing-ish and as war hawkish as possible, for no other reason to out do each other in crazy stuff that comes out of their flip flopping mouths.

This just in: Romney makes Medvedev seem like a reasonable world leader.

You’re doomed GOP. I wish it wasn’t this way. I wish you had real candidates left in the race who could have brought some sanity and balance back to our political process, but 2012 is not going to be your year.

Is it 2008?

Yeah, that hasn’t happen in 3 plus years as commander in chief, but any day now.

Right after he takes our guns away. Be afraid!

Right, you are Kuji.

And Romney’s foreign policy advisors are all former Bush Neocons. Given that he knows very little in the foreign policy arena, it’s a safe bet that they will be the ones shaping a Romney administration foreign policy.

Definition of insanity?

When Mitt gets in the Office of The President I’ll bet he does not surround himself with goofy people like Obama has done from the VP right on down. Liberals will back the lier in chief all the way, denying, denying and denying.

So we are supposed to listen to Medvedev now? I remember when the POTUS told the Russian President “Tear down this wall.” Now we’ve got a POTUS telling the Russian President to give him some space so he can win re-election & then he’ll be “flexible.” I’ll take the first one, thankyouverymuch.

Oh, PS, Russia is our no. 1 geopolitical foe — who is blocking our sanction on Syria in the UN? Who is funding a nuclear Iran? Yeah, comrade — Romney has your number. Got tell Putin that.

I love it when the pubs whine and complain and name call the current president. I mean did they even watch the news and world events when the last guy was in office? And they keep calling the current president bad? If you ask me, this guy with little help from the opposition party has done wonders in getting us on a path back from where the last goof left us. Give him 4 more years and a congress and senate that are willing to work together and lets see what happens.

So now Romney and the GOP want to bomb Syria, start a war with Iran and at the same time also start another cold war with Russia… Oh wait I missed one…, while we are still in Afghanistan. Perfect strategy for peace, maintain credibility and support from our allies, AND fix our economy. The GOP and their supporters need to learn from our President and stop being so arrogant.

Medvedev is right to say Romney and the GOP need to realize what time they are living in.
