Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu almost had a fit when she wanted to resolve the Israel/Palestine issue by returning to previously established borders. That didn’t work. As I mentioned, she took North Korea by storm and her husband had to fly at his own expense to correct the misunderstandings there. Clinton, still in charge of foreign affairs, with no presidential micro-management, gave millions to our former allies in Pakistan. As I see it, they simply took the money and ran. Then she gave them some more. In 2008, Pakistan was still an ally; now, under Obama, Pakistan is a threat.
Yes he was unable to move Congress in any direction, owing to an absolute Republican policy of obstructionism. Yes they are to be criticized far more than he. The years to come will clearly be a period of corporate dominance. Transparency and accountability, the big promises of 2008, are as opaque as wet mud. Yet, the Democratic insider trading scandals are something we clearly are not supposed to mention.
Obama is working closely with Russian Vladimir Putin, but their meetings are all very hush-hush. And in fact the military in Russia has considered preemptively striking a main thrust of the Obama foreign policy, the new and better missile shield, proposed for 2015.
Obama seemed to me to have a little birther in him, but people being roasted can say just about anything. And I really doubt all that Obama is gay stuff.
So as we see, there are some questions. A vote for Romney is a vote for corporate rule, a step beyond the direction of the Bush/Halliburton administration. And a vote for Barack Obama is a vote for Hillary Clinton!
