First 100 Days of National Security: Obama's Centrist Approach Angers Fans, Pleases Critics - First 100 Days of Presidency - Politics FOXNews.com As a realist, I must say that I am refreshed and grateful that Obama has pulled a complete 180 on his foreign policy after the campaign trail. All in all, he's basically Bush III on foreign policy; staying in Iraq, beefing up Afghanistan, no idea on earth what to do with detainees from Gitmo, failed diplomatic efforts with Iran, no idea what to do with Iran, shoulder shrugging and head scratching on N. Korea. That being said, he's doing a lot better at restoring relations with Europe than Bush did; but not much else has changed. Its good to see that with some intelligence briefings and discussions, he reversed directions on his outlandishly radical campaign promises in relation to foreign policy. It gives me a boost in confidence regarding his leadership performance.
