Democrat Presidents who use military force are humanitarians. — divadoll123 (@divadoll123) September 4, 2013 Sounds about right, unfortunately.

Obama foreign policy success: Britain says “Thanks, but no.”

Posted by: Phineas on August 30, 2013 at 3:59 pm » 6 Comments

**Posted by Phineas What was I saying yesterday about the “stunning ineptitude” of Obama’s diplomacy?
