Unrest Deepens in Turkey

    Is it just me or are the President and his foreign policy team a bunch of idiots? He dumps Mubarak and watches Egypt fall into the hands of Islamist morons who destroy the country’s economy while he studiously maintains radio silence as another authoritarian Islamist autocrat, Prime Minister Erdogan, takes his country down the path of totalitarianism. He intervenes in Libya where no American interests are involved setting off a series of consequences that unsettle the Middle East and North Africa while he refrains from action in Syria while watching as Asad, Hezbollah, Iran and Russia all become more dominant. And while all of this is happening, his dimwitted Secretary of State is making almost weekly appearances in Jerusalem and Ramallah because an impossible to achieve peace agreement between Palestinians and Israelis is at or near the top of the Administration’s agenda.

    It’s time for Democrats (of which I am one) to face the facts; when it comes to foreign policy at least, President Obama is a disaster.
