With news trickling in that Obama has made the wise choice to fill in the foreign policy resume holes with Senator Joe Biden as VP candidate, I have this to say to Obama about formulating foreign policy:
1) GET OVER YOURSELF! I know you want to portray yourself as a strong leader, but reminding us that you are the one who will call the shots on foreign policy is not a selling point to me. Your prior utterances have convinced me that you know little of the outside world, know nothing of negotiating from a position of strength, and are even confused about what America’s best interests are in the international community.
2) HEED EVERYTHING BIDEN SAYS ON FOREIGN POLICY! I don’t agree with all of Biden’s foreign policy positions (Biden’s obviously not perfect), but, having said that, I can’t think of any Democrats that I agree with more when it comes to foreign policy than I do with Joe Biden. If you don’t get over yourself (step one), then you probably will take a cavalier approach to Biden’s advice. Taking a cavalier approach to Biden with your very limited understanding of foreign affairs will be catastrophic for our nation if you actually become President. Until you wise up, you’d better be humble and let Biden guide you.
If you get to be President, please don’t screw it up.
