The self-promoting past mayor of New York City, Rudy Giuliani, declared President Barack Obama is not as competent as Vladimir Putin, who decides what he wants to do and he does it in half a day, right? He went to their parliament. He got permission in 15 minutes he makes a decision and he executes it quickly. Thats what you call a leader.
President Obama, hes got to think about it. Hes got to go over it again. Hes got to talk to more people about it.
Giuliani clearly admires dictatorships.
The usual hawks showed up over the Ukraine crisis. Obama is feckless, says Sen. John McCain.
The senator from South Carolina, Lindsay Graham, says the attack on Benghazi encouraged Russia to be unafraid of America. He ignores evidence that our forces were not close enough to respond to hit-and-run tactics.
Troops stationed everywhere is the favored foreign policy of super-conservatives. That was the methodology of the Dick Cheney/George W. Bush administration, and two nations were destroyed, along with the American economy.
Real leaders evaluate options, think about consequences, and go over it again by talking to others.
