Democrat/Socialist Hope But No Change
Democrat/Socialists took over the White House in 2008 proclaiming a new, passive foreign policy that would cause the lion to lie down peacefully among the lambs. Obama announced that the United States would retreat from its military commitments in Iraq and Afghanistan and turn to no-preconditions summit discussions with Iran. Personal charm and denigration of the United States was to replace military strength as our national defense.
That policy, under the direction of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, has reduced much of the Middle East to a shambles and reinvigorated North Korean aggression.
