"President Barack Obama is running on a platform of ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan while demonstrating toughness against al Qaeda"
It is sad that the right-wing groups in the US continue over-the-top campaigns against Obama that help cover times when serious issues arise- people are fed up with the 'hate and racism' and won't hold this administration accountable for its actions (skin color not a factor.)
I fail to understand how anyone could say Obama is 'tough on Al-Qaida'- true, he authorized the killing of Bin Ladin, and allows about a drone strike once every four days in Pakistan, or where ever we feel like droning- but he also handed Libya and much of the Middle East to Al-Qaida and other hateful Islamists... We will be seeing the effects of such take overs for decades to come.
Obama's foreign policy seems to be working just fine so far. Unlike his predecessor, we didn't get involved in any costly wars. Obama mended fences with the international community created by Bush Jr. and his warmongers. Going to war with Iraq, without the permission of the United Nations, was a mistake that needed to be rectified. Obama takes his time, looks at his options and deliberates before deciding on foreign policy.
Over the past four years, we've clearly received greater respect and rapport among the world's nations having Obama as our leader. Obama has further strengthened our foreign policy by ending the war in Iraq and finding and killing of Osama Bin Ladien; and that's simply two clear examples. It has been working and I believe it will continue to work well for the next four years.
Obama's foreign policy is not working at all. America is becoming less and less respected as a nation and more countries are testing the waters to see what they can get away with. A big issue that proves Obama's foreign policy is not working is the terrorist attack in Libya on 9/11/12. Still not sure how I feel about this issue but it is definitely proof that his policy does not work.
