For many voters in the United States foreign policy is viewed, if at all, as inconsequential. Some are “low information voters.” Others, like the fruitful young woman in this video, probably have yet to achieve that relatively elevated level. Have she, and others who managed to rise to low information status, even heard of Mr. Ben Ghazi? Do they know who Mr. Hagel, Senator Kerry and Mr. Brennan are? If so, do they care?

Yet they are entitled to vote and many do. What about those who care enough about foreign policy to realize that Benghazi is a place in Libya, not a person? What about those who also realize that the Obama Administration tried to hide the reasons for the killing of Americans there? Knowing that, what percentage of them nevertheless voted for President Obama in November? How many of them did so because Team Romney had inadequate get-out-the-vote software and how many because they saw little difference between him and President Obama?

The dissolution of the Soviet Union left the world with one superpower, the United States. President Barack Obama’s second term may leave the world with no superpower at all. Ahead of his inauguration on January 21, Obama is undermining the very foundation of his country’s favored status in the international arena. He knows there won’t be a third term, so he is allowing himself to realize all of the basic ideas that drive him; ideas that are dangerous to America and the entire world.

    I often wonder if the Republicans were “instructed” to throw the last two races in 2008 and 2012. Obama is a traitor, plain and simple, a man who, if he enters the White House at all, should be entering through the servants’ entryway. He is trash. I’m being polite here.

    As for American voters, they continue to amaze me with their stupidity and ignorance. All the best to you and the bride in Panamá.

      Best to you and yours,
