Wait, Obama had an agreement with Iran. Oh wait, it unfroze Iranian assets (in the Billions). And it did nothing to stop their drive to obtain a nuke bomb. Appeasement has never worked. But Clinton, Obama, et al., are dead set on continuing to try failed approaches.

Who could doubt this international states women? We must comply. Oh wait, isn't she the Secretary of State who declared, "At this point, what does it matter?". She is a political animal who abandons self respect in her marriage for political gain. Can anyone give her any respect or credibility when we know she will sell herself for personal gain?

Wait for all the Likudniks and Final-Days morons to come out of the woodwork, pushing for us to blow all our money and prestige on another useless war. If Israel is such a mighty regional power, how come they can't do it themselves - if they actually are a regional power.

Brought to you by the same foreign policy expert that made Benghazi possible.

History shows how effective the GOP inaugural "Axis of Evil" speech was at achieving world peace and international harmony. Everything is relative in the do nothing universe. Keep complaining on every topic, you'll go far in politics, guaranteed.

ranger1873: "Brought to you by the same foreign policy expert that made Benghazi possible." Benghazi had nothing to do with foreign policy or diplomacy. It was a terrorist attack on the other side of the world. It was a tragedy, but it's a non-issue, no matter how much the far-right has tried to turn it into one.
