While true, it has been obvious since the beginning, but she happily joined him, didn't resign, fight for anything didn't give a meaningful speech, hasn't written a meaningful memoir on foreign policy. She is a narrow ideological self absorbed light weight. By her own admission what she focused on was womens' rights? Do you know what that means? Abortion. Whatever one's views on the matter, is it a foreign policy priority?

A Policy So Bizarre, So Obama

There is no solution for us now at this time after 6 years of feckless leadership. EU cares but wont lead, so there is little there, and hence little for us. My point was that this wouldn't have happened with a strong leader. Weak leaders can't do much, but what would a strong leader do? Can't ask that question because we wouldn't be here with a strong leader. A strong leader would not be perceived as weak by not talking so much. leading with spin but without a vision, without clarity of purpose, without a strong strategic doctrine, without a diplomatic doctrine with no coherence at all on anything. It is pathetic, and yes the McCains are indeed fools, but there are things we can do. We arn'et drilling off shore, or on the north slope. We do not have a policy to drive the world price of oil and gas down, instead we have a policy to restrict development. That it happens in spite of these fools is no tribute to them. Nor do we have a polcy to grow the economy, reduce the deficit, and hence eventually the debt.
Because what you call liberals are the cannon fodder. The tiny elite know exactly what they are doing.
Moonbat. Liberalism, progressives, marxists etc. policies are the guild rules of the super wealthy. This became clear to me as I went from several center left elite run governments, to a center right elite run government, to one run by the biggest crook and his immediate family. Read Mancur Olsen about guild rules and how they work. I always thought the US was different, but when I worked directly for one of the super powerful, it became clear that, while it was more complex in the US, the guild still ruled. The liberal chairmen, the academic elite, the media elite are part of it, but ordinary citizens who support liberalism are hapless fools to which the various liberal characteristics pertain, but they aren't members of the guild.
They wont but a larger number will if government is close to them, the payment directly linked and if there are no free goodies.
No, the problem is the insane campaign finance laws what we need is to overturn all controls on free speech. However in the mean time a corporate manager can give his own money but unions and corporations only if they consult members and owners.
Malkin is one of the few journalist left. Thanks.
No they are driving the whole thing. Obama is their front. The useful idiots are academics and ordinary folks and middle class who support liberals under the mistaken notion that they favor equality, justice, accontability. They are fascists and they know what they are doing. Liberals do not.

While you are right, a strong leader would not have arrived at this place. Once the world sees Obama as weak and feckless there isn't much he can do internationally, work with the EU to see what they will do and support them. That's about it. Of course given our challenges in Europe and the M.E. a real leader would have taken the new oil drilling technology and run with it. Not this fool, nor the fools who support him. McCain and those calling for bold action are fools as well. It's fools all the way down.
But let us not kid ourselves, who among the so called informed voters has a grip on any of it? What conservative leader is blaming the way we fight the drug war for the chaos south of us? what conservative leaders are calling for e-verify and tough enforcement, the end of welfare for anyone not a citizen and not in real need? What do conservatives call for? a fence for god sake. How many miles of border, and coastline, do we have? How many airports, legal border crossing points, universities with foreign students? What system do we have in place for following these students and tourists, and temp workers? Nothing, it’s all voluntary so we kick the honest Ph.D out, and let the dropout stay. What we have is indifference, spin, dishonesty and a population that either doesn’t pay attention or doesn’t care enough to think.

Actually, the less Obama does the better. Neither Obama nor any member of his inner circle understand much about anything, not foreign policy, economic, tax, fiscal, or military policies. The world sees him as weak and feckless and they are right so he shouldn't do anything. The one thing that would be effective with spillover benefits for the economy and global US influence would be to pull out the stops on energy development by getting out of the way. It won't happen. So he should just play golf and fleece Democrat donors
