In a Meet the Press appearance, Robert Gibbs claimed that the Obama administration has better relationships with countries and improved relationships . . . that make our country safer. Obama and the democrats have consistently put forth the argument that he has restored our image abroad. So let me get this straight. Bush gets three sanctions passed against Iran with votes of 15-0, 15-0 and 14-0 and he's a unilateralist. Obama gets one passed, by a vote of 12-2-1. Our allies Turkey and Brazil actually vote against the sanctions. And obama is the great unifier. Obama's efforts (if there have been any) on the Korean peninsula have resulted in N Korea sinking a S Korean ship. Things are supposedly great now with Russia. Maybe because we've given in to everything they've asked for. And does anyone ever ask why relations had cooled when Bush left office? could it be that they INVADED GEORGIA? no, it wasn't that, it was because Bush was a warmonger. Venezuela is building closer ties with Syria and iran. How exactly, has the Obama open-hand approach been a success?
