13 Biggest Foreign Policy Blunders of the GOP Race
There are some good reasons that foreign policy hasn't been a big issue in the Republican presidential primary competition. It doesn't poll as particularly important to voters, especially compared to the economy; there isn't too much difference between the candidates on big issues, who mainly seem to agree, for example, that Israel Good, Palestine Bad; and raising the more difficult or contentious issues tends to pose more political risk than potential reward. How do you answer a question on U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, for example, without angering either the national security hawks or the libertarian wing of your party? (Candidates have mostly managed to say as little as possible, hedging both against and in favor of withdrawal.)

Mr_Bill, will you be posting the companion piece, "13 Biggest Foreign Policy Blunders of the Obama Administration"?
Though I doubt you'll find it in The Atlantic.

Personally, I find it a huge improvement that the present administration even has such a thing as foreign policy in contrast to the' war-first/reasons-later or lacking' of the past administration.

Obama has been pretty consistent in his foreign relations. His big blunder is in domestic affairs, not whipsawing the Congressional Districts of those GOP'ers who would shut down our US government.

In other words, no you won't be posting an article of the Obama Administration's Foreign Policy blunders.
Didn't think so.
