"APOLOGIZE FOR AMERICA, ABANDON OUR ALLIES AND APPEASE OUR ENEMIES."
Liz Cheney got it right.
Speaking Friday at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference, in just a few words she captured the Obama foreign policy that deeply concerns Americans.
Obama believes America is the problem in the world and wants us weak. Inspired by Pentagon bomber Bill Ayers, one might say.
Obama acts as if he wants Israel destroyed. Inspired by Jeremiah Wright and Edward Said, one might say.
Obama is making Islam's war of world conquest easier by pretending it doesn't exist. Inspired by Rashid Khalidi, Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour and Ali Abunimah, one might say.
Obama is attacking the Constitution and destroying our economy to turn the citizenry into welfare dependents of the state as The Communist Manifesto would have it. Inspired by his mentors communists Frank Marshall Davis and Saul Alinsky, one might say.
Obama is undermining America in every way he can.
Obama is weakening America and making us less safe.
He is going through the motions in Afghanistan, needlessly exposing our soldiers to death in a war he had no interest in winning.
He is on the verge of throwing away the victory we won in Iraq by his insistence on his timetable for troop withdrawal regardless of the facts on the ground. Iran will fill the vacuum he is creating.
He is allowing Iran to acquire nuclear weapons.
He cannot be allowed to succeed. Americans must take back control of this country in November.
Update: America's leading expert on Iran Michael Ledeen sees it the way we do:
Not Inadvertent at All
by Michael Ledeen
Victor Davis Hanson says there is neither rhyme nor reason to our foreign policy. Obama has no idea what he is doing and wings his way from one embarrassment to another, he says. Victor lists the embarrassments: dissing the Brits; pulling the carpet out from beneath the feet of the Czechs and Poles; rewriting Islamic history to make them look good; kissing up to the Russians and Saudis while insulting Karzai; and so forth.
But what if Obama does know what he’s doing? What if Victor has it right when he says that we are being transformed into a much larger version of the E.U.? (Actually, it’s a somewhat smaller version, but no matter.)
Obama sure rhymes, even if we find it unreasonable. He is not an admirer of America. He believes that America’s past behavior is the root cause of the world’s problems, and he wants to bring America under control by making it just another European country: impotent in world affairs (except for spreading the wealth) and stripped of its traditional exceptionalism at home.
That’s what his latest initiatives are all about, the new nuclear policy and the removal of clarity from our national-security doctrine by banning words like “jihad” and “Islam.” Since he considers us the problem, he imposes a nuclear doctrine that reins in America — the root cause of evil in the world. And since he wants to turn America into a weak country that will accept the political correctness of the feckless “international community,” he adjusts our language to bring it into line with the U.N.’s version of Newspeak.
It’s worse than you thought, Victor. It’s not confusion at all. It’s a campaign to cut America down to size.
