President Obama has been personally ‘stung’ by his foreign policy critics and makes a series of speeches and appearances to ‘address’ those critics directly. Is this a wise political move? What are the top issues in the 2014 election cycle? Do they have anything to do with foreign policy. Are the president’s critics warmongers? Does the criticism have to do with the president’s decision making process and consensus approach to reacting to Syria, Libya, Ukraine and terrorists? When is it appropriate to question the White House conduct of Foreign Policy? If the people of the United States are focused inward, can the president’s economic policies be blamed? What about the rest of the world — becoming concerned about over-capacity and deflation? These are the issues that ought to be on the front burner in the foreign policy debate few people have indicated interest in. Sponsored by Baklund R & D.
