    So, American Crossroads is critical of Obama's foreign policy?

    Gee...woulda thunk it?

    AC was founded by Karl Rove and former RNC chairman Ed Gillespie. In other words, they're among the very team of morons who crafted George Bush's foreign policy. You remember that policy, don't you? The policy that gave us Iraq and the "preemptive" invasion theory, that called Pakistan's Musharaff our friend, which spent billions to prop up the House of Saud and which mirrored the policies of Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud Party so perfectly that they were indistinguishable.

    Obama has completely rejected that foreign policy and crafted a totally new one, focused upon containing China in the western Pacific and Indian Ocean. He's distanced us from Pakistan and drawn us closer to India, which is the key to the Indian Ocean. He's gotten us out of the Iraq debacle and is drawing down the war in Afghanistan, which the Rove/Bush team screwed up so badly that we'll be lucky to leave with our dignity intact. And, he's so far restrained Israel from kicking off WWIII.

    No wonder Rove et. al. don't like him! He's repudiated just about everything they did! And good for him! We don't need to sacrifice any more of our young men and women on the altar of GOP/Likud ambitions.

    But, you see, they hide all that behind American Crossroads, a Super-Pac spending millions to elect Mitt Romney who has made no bones about his willingness to take our foreign policies right back to the Bush era. In fact, many of his campaign advisors and political operatives CAME from the Bush White House!

    So, it shouldn't surprise anyone that AC would be critical of the President, should it?

    And, by the way, here's an indication of just how dumb they they y'all are. Not only are they convinced you won't take the time to find out who American Crossroads is or what they stand for, this little quote from their website reveals just how little they think of those of you who support them. They really must think you're uneducated, ill-informed morons.

    "....Instead of confronting these challenges with realistic solutions, President Obama and his allies in Congress stubbornly cling to the same destructive policies that drove us into this economic and fiscal morass: Backbreaking tax increases. Job-destroying regulatory harassment. And gross fiscal incompetence...."

    Destructive policies crafted by who, Karl? YOU! YOU and your minions did it and you have the gall to blame Obama for what YOU created?

    Good Lord. Are Mitt and Bush's supporters really dumb enough to swallow that?

    I will pass on asking you to explain bombing Libya in order to promote democracy in the Arab world, but please explain to me his policy towards Africa and our protection of ruthless dictators there.

    "The creeping U.S. military involvement in long-simmering African conflicts, however, carries risks. Some State Department officials have expressed reservations about the militarization of U.S. foreign policy on the continent. They have argued that most terrorist cells in Africa are pursuing local aims, not global ones, and do not present a direct threat to the United States." This is a five page investigative report undertaken by the Washington Post.

    U.S. expands secret intelligence operations in Africa - The Washington Post

    "In the same spirit, last March, as the Arab Spring wave moved east from Tunisia, Obama backed the Djibouti regime of Ismail Omar Guelleh against pro-democracy protesters, apparently because the tiny dictatorship hosts several thousand US African Command (AfriCom) troops at Washington's only solely-owned base in Africa."

    "Obama also infamously extended red-carpet treatment to world-class kleptocrat tyrant Ali Bongo 15 months ago, thanks to Gabon's oil reserves. This was followed by a similarly controversial invitation in April to Ethiopia's then prime minister Meles Zenawi, rebuffing valid complaints from Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International leaders: "The US, World Bank, and other states and institutions have shown little or no attention to Ethiopia's worsening human rights record."

    "And last year, citing US national security interests, Obama issued a waiver for more than $200m in military aid to allied regimes in Somalia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Libya, South Sudan and Yemen in spite of a 2008 US law prohibiting such funding because of their armies' abuse of child soldiers."

    Not sure if this went through the first time.
