Obama's foreign policy approach: Act cautiously, and not alone

There are 11 comments on the www.latimes.com story from Sep 15, 2012, titled Obama's foreign policy approach: Act cautiously, and not alone. In it, www.latimes.com reports that:

The president fashions a use-of-force doctrine that supporters say is prudent but critics deem too timid.

On the afternoon of March 15 last year, President Obama and top advisors sat in the White House Situation Room poring over grainy satellite photos of an armored column thundering down on a largely unprotected Libyan city. Their choices appeared to be stark: Plunge the United States into a new war in the Arab world, or risk the slaughter of thousands.

Obama's foreign policy approach: Act cautiously, and not alone

HORSE PUCKY

The media knows that at this stage in the election, the headline is all that matters. And the headline need only be barely supported by some underlying veracity. If you can find some cooperative Democratic staffer to mouth the word “gaffe,” then you’re off to the races with a deceptive headline

The mainstream media has dropped all pretense of impartiality. Their behavior in response to the latest Mideast crisis was blatant, outrageous and effective. When the world erupted on September 11 and the Obama administration groveled at the feet of our barbarian attackers, the major news outlets knowing that this was a disastrous turn of events for the Obama campaign which could not be spun in his favor decided the only solution was to brazenly change the subject to a fabricated peripheral side issue: that Romney had committed some kind of “gaffe” by criticizing the government’s weak-kneed response.

As Obama’s dithering threatened to ignite a world war, a significant percentage of mainstream news outlets blared headlines like ROMNEY GAFFE DERAILS REPUBLICAN HOPES and ROMNEY WON’T BACK DOWN FROM FALSE CLAIM. Of course neither of these headlines (nor countless similar headlines over the past two days) was factually true: The only thing that transformed Romney’s rather mild criticism into a “gaffe” was that the media itself declared it to be so.

The MSM knows full well it manipulates The Narrative, and invariably does so to the benefit of Obama, the Democrats, and “progressivism” in general. And people like you and I know this full well too.

READ THE HEADLINES ONLY TO LAUGH AND KNOW THAT THE MEDIA IS FARTING 24/7 and IT WILL GET WORSE OVER THE NEXT 6 WEEKS.

Warn everyone virally - 6 weeks of this to come.

Obama's cautious well-informed approach has served us well so far. As opposed to Romney who shoots first, aims later, and looks more & more like Bush 3.0 every day. After all, 17 of his foreign policy advisors are the same ones that advised Bush to LIE our way into the war with Iraq!

Conservatives lost the battle on foreign policy & credible intelligence when Bush ignored months worth of intelligence briefings that warned of Osama's terrorist cell in America that resulted in the WORST foreign terrorist attack on U.S. soil back in September of 2001!!! That's why the Democrats OWN the nations trust on Foreign policy & defense issues especailly when you consider the 11 terrorist attacks on U.S. Embassies under the Bush Admin!!! What's even more dispicable is the GOP blocking bills via the filibuister that would help the first responders who are suffering the health effects of breathing in all that toxic dust from the tragic events on that day!

Agreed. Put Romney in office and he will lead us right into World War 3.
