Nations around the world look to us, as a powerful country, to do the right thing because they know we have a big heart, and they will be treated fairly. There is huge news that is not making the newspaper headlines nor is on TV. I hear it all the time. This or that bellicose Republican politician, especially the presidential candidates, says Obama should do this or that in the Middle East. They invariably use an accusing tone of voice as if they found some big lack in the President foreign policy. The truth is that everything they come up with he has done or is doing. The President is doing things right. In contrast to Congress, the huge news is that everything the President is responsible for he is doing and doing it correctly. In the entire history of our nation, we have never, had as good a foreign policy as we now have. That is the good news, and the media do no sell papers with good news. What is true about our foreign policy is that other nations do not respect us out of fear, but they is respect for who we are. People come to us because they know under President Obama, we are powerful but have a big heart and not because we are bristling with guns, ships, and armies. Our Republican friends seem incapable of understanding this. We all know from the earliest playgrounds to everyday give and take, of the adult world what a bully is and do not like it; we want to stop it. However, when it comes to our nation, there are those who think that is what we should do in the world. They best of them see it as a “walk softly and carry a big stick” but it is still a bully policy. URL: firetreepub.blogspot.com Comments Invited and not moderated
