OBAMA'S FOREIGN POLICY IS A FAILURE Inept Jimmy Carter is responsible for the loss of Iran. He did not come to the aid of the Shah. . 30 years later Iran is now close to developing an A-Bomb . Now PRES. BARACK OBAMA HAS LOST BOTH EGYPT & LIBYA ! . Khadafi had been a bad guy but at least now he was under control and sold his oil to the U.S. The rebels now have control and the money from Libyan oil sales now goes to the Muslim Brotherhood, the terrorists and al-Quaeda . Obama did not acknowledge the danger or strength of the Muslim Brotherhood, or come to the aid of Mubarak and helped overthrow Khadafi.... In the 2011 Superbowl Interveiw with O'Reilly, Obama's mistaken attitude with reference to the Muslim Brotherhood is revealed.

The coupe d'etat that was Khomeini, was a disaster. We could have and should have pressured the Shah to reform. Iran would probably more like Turkey (or even a Taiwan or South Korea or even Spain) if it would have slowly turned to Republicanism.

Did you miss Carter's statement on how he wished Obama would follow his example? Boy, that worked out. Looking better for Romney, in November.

In addition when the people of Iran were revolting in 2009, Obama did not come to their aid and their revolt was crushed.
Also, Obama treats Israel as an enemy not an ally
We must now ask, "Are we better off in the Mid East than we were 4 years ago ?"
Obama's foreign policy is a failure !!

Who would have thought that God and Jerusalem would become controversial issues at this year's Democratic National Convention?

Previous Democratic Party platforms had mentioned God and referred to Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. After both were initially missing from this year's platform, someone apparently realized that this was likely to raise questions about Democrats that they could ill afford to have raised in an election year.

So the convention faced a vote on whether to restore God and Jerusalem to their party's platform. Rather than risk a roll-call vote from the delegates, the chair called for a voice...
