Barack Obama: A Global Embarrassment

Barack Obama: A Global Embarrassment:

The president appeared weak, tired, and confused, due in part to the fact that his soaring oratory from 2010 has proven unsustainable, when compared to reality.

Scoundrels in Syria, North Korea, and Iran must have found hope in the president’s weakness. The obvious muting of American strength and preeminence will surely embolden the ‘bad guys’ to take greater risks, a fact that makes the world dramatically less safe than it was when Obama took office in 2009.

What will motivate Iran to abandon its quest of a nuclear weapon now that America is no longer interested or capable of providing effective opposition?

Why would North Korea bother to be more civil and accommodating now that the United States is run by a pacifist who prefers to ‘lead from behind’?........
