Friends Abroad

Here’s yet another example of how people find ways to attack Obama regardless of what he does. The old right wing meme has been to portray Democrats as paying too much attention to foreign countries, often insinuating that they are compromising American sovereignty. Today Jackson Diel attacked Obama from the opposite direction for not having good friends among foreign leaders.

Thinking of foreign leaders as good buddies works wonders. Remember how well it worked out when George Bush looked into Putin’s soul? There undoubtedly are cases when personal relationships might be of value but Obama is doing a far better job of achieving international cooperation than George Bush ever could.
