Check out this post by Michael O’Hanlon on the President’s first year in foreign policy. Here’s an excerpt…
But in fact, Obama has had a solid first year in foreign policy matters. By one measure, comparison with other first-year presidents in modern history, Obama ranks with the three or four best since World War II by my estimation – and I write this as someone who opposed Obama during the Democratic primary process of 2007-2008 largely because of fears at the time that he would not be strong on national security.
Personally, I’m thrilled by his approach to foreign policy. The Bush swagger created a lot of animosity towards the United States and our president has already done a lot to repair that image. Cheney, the puppet-master behind W., of course thinks the president is all wrong in not acting cocky. It seems that every time Cheney opens his mouth, I disagree with him.
Here are some links to some great posts floating around in cyberspace.
Off to a party……like it’s 2010.
Having been pissed off so much by Jane Hamsher and her thugs at FireDogLake, I went to Google and typed in her name. Woe, in about 5 minutes I learned an awful lot about her that now makes other things clearer to me. She was one of the producers of Oliver Stone’s film “Natural Born Killers” and even wrote a book about her experience on that film. It was financed by Time Warner, hmmmm, is that a corporation? I thought Jane was against those big corporations, but apparently not when they are paying her. Now that was a movie I would never go see, I hate violence in all forms and I think Hollywood has been sensationalizing it and making it cool by presenting it in a hip, fast paced way that appeals to impressionable “yutes.” Check out this link that talks about how the film was directly related to at leat 8 murders.
My fishing around on Google also turned up another link, here it is, that talks about other lovely things she’s done over the years, including the race-baiting photo of Clinton with Joe Lieberman during the primaries in Connecticut. Now I am no fan of Lieberman’s by any means, but this event does show the type of person she truly is. Hmmmmm, I’ll have to click a few more links on google and let you know what else I find about this person who seems to be showing up on my Teevee way too much.
