Krauthammer Hammers Obama’s Putin Appeasement

img_1087_krauthammer-obama-postering-over-budg...Charles Krauthammer is a highly respected commentator who writes a regular column for the Washington Post and is one of the roundtable regulars on Fox News’ Special Report w/Bret Baier. In Yesterday’s National Review Online, Mr. Krauthammer succinctly sums up the results of Obama’s nice guy strategy with Russia and Iran.

Charles first reminds us that killing Osama Bin Laden is not the definition of strong foreign policy. While Obama may think this shows toughness, it has nothing to do with the practice of negotiating with other nations. This is where the President has weakened our country.

First, Obama hit the “Reset” button with Russia by cancelling the Polish-Czech missile defense system. In return we got nothing. Russia still supports Iran and Syria in the United Nations against the interests of the United States and others in the region.

Next was the naive assumption that we could engage Iran in some sort of apologetic way by admitting our past sins. For this we got a more defiant adversary who still wants to destroy the land of Israel, supply IED’s that kill American soldiers to Iraq and Afghanistan, and threatens commerce by playing war games in the Strait of Hormuz.

Can anyone deny that Obama is a foreign policy lightweight? He thought that by apologizing for America’s strength, appeasing our enemies, and scolding our friends, the world would come together under his embrace. The President has been dangerously naive.

    Yes, we think Krauthammer has it just right. Obama doesn’t have a clue on how to negotiate; giving up much to get nothing in return. Will Hillary be able to pull things together? We doubt it.
