Eric Cantor gets it right on foreign policy

See also

As detestable as Eric Cantor may be about social policy, the House Republican makes the correct call about Obama foreign policy. His insight also accurately characterizes the Obama presidency:

  • hollow rhetoric
  • unwise
  • moveable
  • untimely
  • unenforced red lines
  • weak
  • unclear
  • naive

That is an excellent summation and is accomplished in something close to a sound bite.

If the GOP could transform Cantor’s arrogant personality and just leverage his mouthpiece, they might do well at election time.

The trouble is that this same mouthpiece has also bashed people on Social Security and in need of jobs. He is a contradiction.

“Cantor blasts Obama on foreign policy
By Kristina Wong

A top House Republican issued a stinging rebuke of President Obama’s foreign policy during a speech on Monday morning, criticizing it as weak, unclear and naive.

“American foreign policy should not be guided by hollow rhetoric, unwise or moveable timelines, and unenforced red lines,” said Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) at the Virginia Military Institute.”

While Obama made some initial strides in moving Americans out of wars that we cannot afford, he has gone lame against enemies that require our strongest stand:

  • Russia
  • Syria
  • Afghanistan
  • Pakistan
  • Iraq
  • China
  • North Korea
