Obama Foreign Policy: It Takes Two To Tango
Stephen Green (who I learned at CPAC is, despite the Vodkapundit moniker, an ecumenical drinker who will gladly coif a Sam Adams or a Bombay Sapphire martini with a twist — especially if someone else is paying) has an amusing commentary on Obama’s foreign policy to date:
“I wanna talk!” said the President of the United States to the President of Iran. “Yeah, I’m just not that into you,” replied that President of Iran.
And so our President looked weak, ineffectual and unimportant.
“I wanna talk!” said the President of the United States to the President of the Russian Federation. “Yeah, I’m just not that into you,” replied the Russian President.
His conclusions are harsher than mine, although we both agree that there’s a certain hubris and naivete in thinking that being willing to talk will necessarily result in a grand change in a major power’s foreign policy positions.
