With word coming from The White House that President Barack Obama is open to meeting with Iran’s new President, Hassan Rouhani, the President’s recent Syria debacle, the Edward Snowden-Russian asylum fiasco, among other foreign policy blunders, now is the perfect time to jump into the way-back machine and revisit a post on ThinkFY from May 2012:
President Barack Obama is set to deliver his State of the Union Address tomorrow. In it, he’ll push for new stimulus spending, pay raises for federal employees (public sector unions) and a host of other programs including immigration reform and methods to address “climate change.” Also on the President’s agenda is a move to further reduce America’s nuclear arsenal.
This is a dangerous continuation of Obama’s irresponsible, perhaps reckless, agenda regarding our nuclear deterrence. Consider the events of the last four years and ask yourself whether or not the President is jeopardizing our national security.
As the Presidential election kicks into high-gear, foreign policy has been brought to the fore with the one year anniversary of the killing of terror mastermind and al-Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden. With some tit-for-tat going back and forth between President Barack Obama and presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney over whether Romney would have ordered “the raid to capture Osama bin Laden last year,” I began to think about President Obama’s record as Commander-in-Chief. The more I thought and the more I dug into his record, the more I couldn’t help but think about Ronald Reagan and a few choice words he had to say:
From the “you just can’t make this stuff up” file, The Weekly Standard reported yesterday that North Korea has been appointed Chair of the United Nations Conference on Disarmament.
Obama has made it his goal to see a world without nuclear weapons. Idealistic? Naïve?
Both. The fact of the matter is nuclear dangers are growing. Without getting into North Korea’s nuclear program or their efforts to transfer technology to Syria and Myanmar, or Iran’s drive to acquire a nuclear capability, we need look no further for evidence than our old Cold War foe, Russia, or the emerging Communist superpower, China.
Nine months ago, the Obama Administration released a revised Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) designed to limit the uses of our nuclear weapons.
Today President Barack Obama will meet with the Prime Minister of Myanmar. Prime Minister Thein Sein is an unelected leader of a ruthless, barbaric military junta. As we’ve noted here, Obama’s willingness to meet with and engage brutal dictators is disturbing.
So, President Barack Obama is set to meet with the Prime Minister of Myanmar, a country ruled by a brutal military dictatorship. . .
Maybe Obama won the Peace Prize because of all the wonderful things Obama has worked on as Commander-Of-Peace in the area of engaging communists, brutal dictatorships and appeasing the Russians:
Since President Obama Assumed Office, The United States Has…
• Moved to open relations with one of the last true Communist regimes in the world;
Last Thursday we noted the Obama Administration was looking to take out the kid gloves on Myanmar, a country ruled by a brutal military regime. We highlighted this morning the fact that Senator Webb (D-VA) would be talking to Myanmar’s Dictator Prime Minister Thein Sein.

Well, looks like Senator Jim Webb (D-VA) is taking up the cause. The Associated Press is reporting the good Senator from Virginia will be meeting with Myanmar’s Dictator Prime Minister Thein Sein at the good ‘ol United Nations.
