Jimmy Obama's Foreign Policy

Jim Webb criticizes the president.

May 21, 2014

Former Democrat Sen. Jim Webb of Virginia had some harsh words for what passes as Barack Obama’s foreign policy. Webb likened the current malaise to Jimmy Carter’s tenure, saying, “Remember when Jimmy Carter was president, and people were saying that the job had become too complex, that maybe you needed three people to be president? And Ronald Reagan came in – I say this as a Democrat – Ronald Reagan came in and he was a leader. And he knew whatever people might have thought of him issue by issue, he got good people around him. He gave very clear signals about where he wanted the country to go and things got back on track.” Today, we once again have a president overwhelmed by the job. As Webb added, we’re “bouncing from issue to issue without a clear articulation of what the national security interest of the United States actually is.” He says that as a Democrat.
