Passive Unaggressive

The impression the Obama Administration gives is that of a hesitant traveler tip-toeing around the world seeking to avoid dark corners while at the same time searching for respect and, ultimately, advantage. This would be a workable image if the traveler weren't the world's most powerful -- and armed to the teeth.

Attempting to convince the rest of the world that the United States is a kindly, gentle giant may appeal to some who fear American involvement in any and all political military conflict, but it hardly equates with reality. Whether the U.S. likes it or not, since World War II this country has inherited the role of world leader.

This position requires that whoever inhabits the White House must assume the responsibility of forthright decision-making expected of any leader of the self-proclaimed "greatest nation on earth." The luxury of clever but unclear positions that pass for sophisticated foreign policy with other nations is just not available to Washington.

Obummer will say he's for the protester and at the same time say that he's looking forward to meeting with the current goverment. He's such a wishy washy idiot.

This is just the start of what BO is going to do to our foreign policy.
