Default World events threaten Obama's economic message

World events threaten Obama's economic message - Yahoo! News

Foreign policy challenges are intruding on President Barack Obama's promise to focus on the economy after the Democrats' election debacle and threatening to knock the White House off message altogether.
As the Obama administration and the democrats circle the wagons in a defensive posture that is a last ditch effort to protect them from the natives, all hope seems almost lost.
Up rides the cavalry (Associated Press) to save the day. "Look, look", they shout, "It's foreign policy challenges getting in they way of his message".
Forget the fact that his actions haven't work, it's the message that is important to the AP.

It makes me want to
Virtually every president throughout our history has had to deal with foreign policy issues, that's the presidents effing job. Yet the AP puts together this article as if this is somehow a unique situation that no other president has encountered before.

But it wasn't until the conservative, right-wing President of the last Administration took our foreign policy out of the hands of the State Dept and put it in the hands of the Pentagon. And when you have irresponsible, narcissistic American's who think they can sail a Ronald Reagan carrier group into the South China sea and conduct war manuevers on China's front lawn, they may find they are not dealing with some mythical Islamic terrorist cell, but a modern, mechanized military that actually has nuclear weapons with launch vehicles similar to ours and has no intention of taking any of our crap on their front doorstep.

I've always said, no one comes over to my house talking tall to me under my roof. I won't allow it! I don't like what North Korea did. And if they shoot at us, we need to shoot back. What we don't need is to go provoking them with the same method we used on Iraq and are trying with Iran. Because the possible enemy, is as big and bad as we are and can wipe us out as easily we can them.

So word to the right wing, "Back the F_ck off!"

It brings us back to one of the anathemas of the Left. That is most "domestic issues," were to be quite properly addressed by the State and Local Authorities, not the National Government.
