Actual Headline from The Hill: ‘Why Reagan would approve of Obama’s foreign policy’

Well, if only Ronald Reagan was still around he could actually rebut this nonsense. As a means of propping up the hapless Obama the author of this nonsense takes every foreign policy mishap of Reagan’s and unwittingly reminds us how incompetent Obama is. See, he’s just like Reagan!

As for negotiating with America’s enemies, according to James Mann in The Los Angeles Times, “during Reagan’s second term, he met five times with [Mikhail] Gorbachev, more than any other American president had met a Soviet leader during the Cold War.” In contrast, Obama’s recent negotiations are seen as appeasement toward Iran, even though, like Reagan, Obama needed to ink a nuclear negotiation deal. What many naysayers of the Iran deal also ignore is that Iran funds Shiite militias in Iraq — the same militants who fight ISIS and the same fighters who could cause even more havoc in Iraq if Tehran remains at odds with the world community. Like Vietnam with Reagan, two costly counterinsurgency wars (from Obama’s predecessor) leading to an “overstretched” U.S. military have also factored heavily into Obama’s foreign policy decisions.

Finally, Reagan’s ability to keep American troops away from foreign wars (aside from Grenada); leave Lebanon without entering a civil war; negotiate for hostages; and work tirelessly with Gorbachev was rooted in pragmatism, not ideology. In contrast, Obama’s decision not to enter Syria’s civil war, his deal with Iran and his decision to abide by George W. Bush’s Status of Forces Agreement in Iraq are what Republicans today view as weakness. Leaving competing political ideologies aside, Ronald Reagan would approve of Barack Obama’s foreign policy, primarily because it mirrors his own in a variety of ways.

Completely insane. If you want an idea how loony this clown is, just take a look at his homepage.

    Ya, no kidding. We were fighting those militias a couple of years ago. Arming and training them and setting them loose on the Iraqi civilians doesn’t really seem like a good idea. Somehow this is a plus for Obama?
