Looking to the Future Overseas


For John, BLUFThe President is getting a pretty full Foreign Policy plate.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



From The International New York Times we have Journalist David Sanger giving us "Commitments on Three Fronts Test Obama’s Foreign Policy".  The lede, datelined Washington:
In vowing in Estonia on Wednesday to defend vulnerable NATO nations from Russia “for as long as necessary,” President Obama has now committed the United States to three major projections of its power:  a “pivot” to Asia, a more muscular presence in Europe and a new battle against Islamic extremists that seems very likely to accelerate.
From the Instapundit we have this quip:
UPDATE:  From the comments:  “That is so funny.  Sarah Palin saw it coming from her front porch.”
Hat tip to the Instapundit.

The constant media bashing of Sarah Palin long ago became acutely tiresome. I find it interesting and very telling that she was destroyed by the media and all the "savvy wonks" but the country anointed a pathetic failure to be POTUS. Surely, even as a VP, Palin could not have even approached the level of incompetence that this Administration has demonstrated.

And yet,Palin continues to be the butt of denigrating commentary disguised as "trendy, informed humor."

I personally see it as a symptom of how intellectually shallow American society has become.

I agree your point, but I think the comment quoted was a point for Ms Palin and against the media.

The US committing to maintain democracies on these three fronts from all conflicts external and INTERNAL is just heresy! I thought the whole point of being a democracy is that the people of the nation were responsible for its continued maintenance? Am I wrong here?

So if you all want only oranges in the supermarket whenever you go to shop, then by all means you will understand why EVERY country on the planet has to have our democratic model governing it. Shouldn't we also be working to throw down all the one parliament states since they do not have two legislative houses. Right?
