      Only a B+?

    Obama’s smart diplomacy: the new definition of an oxymoron.

  • Corlyss

    “Smart diplomacy” was the product of anti-American academics that Obama pretended to like. It never was anything more than a fig leaf over “programmed weakness” that the Democrats since Viet Nam have embraced to the extent that none of them can walk and talk National Security.

    ” . . . German trust in the U.S. has plummeted to lows not seen since the thick of the Iraq war.”

    Not to argue with the point of the article, but isn’t this much like saying “the coldest weather in the last ten years”?

    Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize is like everything else about him, an empty gesture of fantasy.
