Aren't You Glad the Adults Are in Charge of Foreign Policy Again?

Yesterday, our good friend Mahmood Imadinnerjacket gave a speech before the United Nations and said that Iran was developing a second nuclear reactor. This shocked a lot of people, not the least of which being President Obama.

Okay, by a show of hands, who wasn’t surprised by Imadinnerjacket’s revelation? That many, huh?

This should come as no surprise to anyone who paid attention to Iran over the past several years. In other words, this should come as a complete surprise to the Leftists. While they were being wowed by his humor, Henry Winkler looks, and education, he was playing them for fools. And the Left was all too willing to be fools for Imadinnerjacket.

Now with a Leftist in control of the White House, we’re seeing world leaders who could do little more than talk tough under George W. Bush start to act up. Kim Jong Il, Hugo Chavez, and other leaders around the world have a low opinion of Obama, just as they did with Bush. The difference is that Obama’s a bit above Bush in that he’s more likely to be the type to play nice with them, even after they’ve betrayed him several times over.

The problem is that, in spite of his well-stamped passport, Obama is still very green when it comes to international affairs. And who is Obama’s foreign policy expert? Joe Biden. If there are any situations that arise and require an international response, we’re pretty much screwed.

And don’t think Imadinnerjacket and the rest of the world doesn’t see this. Watch them to exploit this weakness in Obama’s cool exterior more and more in the coming years, and they will, if they haven’t already. We could easily see Obama morph into a latter day Woodrow Wilson, someone who thought he was the smartest guy in the room when it came to international affairs, but who was outmaneuvered by those far smarter than he. And I think we know how the League of Nations and the Treaty of Versailles turned out.
