    Gotta have lots of wars, or the clowns won’t like you. Of course, if you’re a Democrat, they still won’t say anything good anyway.

    Even the senile old Hollywood has-been B- Grade ham actor went into Granada.

    You Grenada has a national holiday called “Thanksgiving Day”On October the 25th.The anniversary of the U.S. “Invasion”.

    Strange how they are thankful and LWNJ’s view throwing Cuban invaders out of a country that didn’t want them there,then leaving, as bad.
    Wait its Cuba.The LWNJ’s think the Castro’s and Che are cool even though they are mass murderers.

    So Liberals, according to the reactionary Republicans, cannot ever bring up the Bush administration. You know the one that caused so many of the problems this whole country is still grappling with because it was so long ago. Yet those same reactionaries feel free to bring up Jimmy Carter who’s been out of office for three and a half decades and have yet to say what they would be doing different if they were in power. This cartoon does little more than prove the cartoonist is a flaming hypocrite.

    Many people foolishly think that, just because some people SAY he was elected twice, Obama is the Commander in Chief and managed to topple the Libyan government without losing a single US soldier (and only one Ambassador and three more Americans).

    Fortunately, the comments here have made clear that the US military, knowing Obama was born on the Kenyan island of Hawaii (that he tried to convince the gullible was a US state), refused to accept Obama as Commander in Chief, and has been operating without any civilian oversight since January ‘09.

    We’re all sure that Obama said not to hurt his BFFs Osama and Qadhafi, but the US military knew not to listen to him and went in, against Obama’s direct but invalid orders, and got rid of both Osama and Qadhafi, no thanks to Obama.

    So clearly this cartoon is spot on.

    “mass murderers”.
    The same as Bush Jr & Cheney?

    Is Obama trying to take it or run from it?
    The US isn’t particularly “imperialist” and hasn’t been even close for at least a century, maybe longer. If the US was / is America would own half the planet now and have a greater empire than Britain at its height.

    I don’t think we really know what “Foreign Policy” is. It historically been how we are able to talk and work with other nations and peoples. (who each have their own idea of what is best for their people).
    Unfortunately for many in our country it has become “Which president is the best at Bullying all other people to do what we want” (ie what is best for us to heck with the rest of the world)
    The best foreign policy President was probably Kennedy. Close behind were Eisenhower and Wilson. The worst, historically were both of the Bushes and Reagan with Roosevelt and Johnson close behind them. They chose to use force to beat those who did things differently until we have them under submission.
    It works after a fashion but really is nothing to be proud of.

    This cartoon is complete gibberish.
    First of all: Carter didn’t get us into brushfire wars all over the world – Reagan did. Nor was Carter declared a war criminal, as Reagan was for his immoral war against Nicaragua (including mining Managua Harbor. Imagine if someone mined New York Harbor!).
    Second of all, any declaration of Obama being worse at foreign affairs than BUSH is simply insane. Bush got us into two major unfunded wars, neither of which served the purpose for which they were intended. Obama nailed bin Laden without having to mobilize zillions of troops.
    And in practice Obama is just continuing Bush’s wars and policies, including the drone wars, so how is he really different?

    A warmongering element in America seem to have great disdain for presidents who win Peace Prizes and do community work. As Baslim the beggar pointed out, Carter was instrumental in bringing about lasting peace between Israel and Egypt via the Camp David accords, for which he was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize in 2002. Post presidency, he was very active in Habitat For Humanity that built houses for the poor. He was also active world wide in a number of other causes for human rights through the Carter Center. According to these fanatics there is no merit in world peace, living in harmony, saving lives, and doing good things for people.

    “W” was absolutely the worst foreign relations President in U.S. history. He’s the only one to invade TWO wrong countries at the same time, costing over $3 Trillion and counting, killing over 5,000 American troops, and over 300,000 civilians. Yes dittoheads, he WAS the worst and it WAS HIS FAULT, and totally based on bad intel (Afghanistan) and nothing but outright lies (Iraq).

    In traveling to other countries during his administration, the common theme from citizens from around the world was universal, they still loved “Americans” as people, but hated the Bush government, often passonately.

    Obama is still problematic, yes, but our standing around the world is far higher now, with the use of diplomacy, instead of “bomb first, ask questions later”. Even with the drone strikes of questionable “legality” in Pakistan and elsewhere, the toll of “collateral damage” is down significantly, and at least people can see SOME indication of going after genuine “bad guys”, rather than just carpet bombing a whole country, and destroying it’s infrastructure, and people. “W” = “worst”.

    Obama is a TERRIBLE foreign policy president!! He hasn’t started a single war!! What’s the use of a president who doesn’t start a war??

    News from YouTube. That really sounds intellectual? There are several clips there that prove the moon landing was fake also.
