The New York Times Slams Obama Foreign Policy Speech

President Obama delivered a speech yesterday on foreign policy, and the New York Times was not impressed.

In their May 29 print editorial, the Times editors write that Obama’s speech at West Point “provided little new insight,” relied on “hackneyed phrases,” and was even “ludicrous.”

“[H]e provided little new insight into how he plans to lead in the next two years, and many still doubt that he fully appreciates the leverage the United States has even in a changing world,” the editorial reads.

The editorial criticizes Obama for glossing over conflicts in Egypt, failing to properly address China and Russia, barely addressing government surveillance abuses and drone strikes, and offering token support for the closure of the prison at Guantanamo Bay.

“This was far from Mr. Obama’s big moment,” the Times notes. “But since he has no office left to run for, what matters ultimately is his record in the next two and a half years.”

It would appear the media and other opinion "leaders" realize the Obama era will be over soon, and his power is dwindling.

Therefore it is time to put Obama-mania behind, and prepare for the next era. There is much less need now, for them to please Obama.

There will be a delicate "media" balancing act, whereby Bush is criticized for too much war , and then Obama only mildly criticized for weakening our status and influence.

In will march Hillary, the perfectly balanced solution. Under her husband the economy thrived, and peace (mostly) prevailed. Hail to the new Queen, and the olde King. The era of more firsts.

I think the economy may be the primary focus by 2016. House prices and the stock market have recovered remarkably nicely.

Employment not so well, at all. The citizens will be aware the future does NOT appear so bright, after Obama. Will he be blamed?

Will the 47% be the 52% or the 57% by then? Will be still be borrowing from India, China and Japan?

Will inflation hold low, or explode? Will interest rates wipe out house prices and market values?

Mr. Obama has clearly been given a Teflon presidency. But the era is winding down.

The GOP candidate(s) who can speak intelligently about the economic and national security future of America, will get my attention.
