foreign policy

The American temptation is to believe that foreign policy is a subdivision of psychiatry.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We want a president who is as much like an American tourist as possible. Someone with the same goofy grin, the same innocent intentions, the same naive trust; a president with no conception of foreign policy and no discernible connection to the U.S. government, whose Nice Guyism will narrow the gap between the U.S. and us until nobody can tell the difference.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
And itís not surprising that there should be disagreement - itíd be a little surprising if there was complete consensus on any foreign policy issue.More [07/22/2007 12:07:00]
Pete Helmes: Okay now, what do you say Jack?
Jack Issel: I say that you two guys, are two of the biggest assholes I've ever met.
Scott Dantley: You're way out of line, Mister Issel!
Pete Helmes: Jack, for heaven's sake, this is an important foreign policy issue at stake here!
Jack Issel: Don't give me this "foreign policy" stuff. I call it contemptible horse shit! You just want to buy yourselves a country like as if it was a stolen TV set. Then, you launder hot goods and dirty dealings through something you call "foreign policy." My God, America's a democracy. We're not some international fried chicken chain!More [02/17/2008 12:02:00]
Dennis Miller:
I don't want to go on a rant, here, but America's foreign policy makes about as much sense as Beowulf having sex with Robert Fulton at the first battle of Antietam. I mean when a neo-conservative defenestrates it's like Raskolnikov filibuster deoxymonohydroxinate...

Sherry Palmer:
Why don't you just say what's on your mind? You don't want me here.

Lynne Kresge:
Mrs. Palmer, I...

Sherry Palmer:
No, you don't want me here! So let's just quit playing games?

Lynne Kresge:
How dare you speak to me like this? I was appointed by the President of the United States of America because of my qualifications in foreign policy and crisis management, and I don't know what kind of credentials you have that make you think you can lecture me. Fine. You don't want to play games? I don't like you. And I don't like you being here.

Sherry Palmer:
Well... *now* we're communicating.

The lesson of the last year is this: foreign policy can't be managed through the politics of personality, and our President would do well to take note of an observation John F.

Our foreign policy has made a wreck of this planet. I'm always in Africa... And when I go to these places I see American policy written on the walls of oppression everywhere.

It is my view that we cannot conduct foreign policy at the extremes.More [10/14/2011 03:10:48]

It was ironic that the governor talked about foreign policy and basically supported every foreign policy endeavor of the Clinton-Gore administration ... it's pretty easy to know something about foreign policy when you agree with the other guy the whole time.More [01/12/2012 06:01:47]
If there is one lesson for U.S. foreign policy from the past 10 years, it is surely that military intervention can seem simple but is in fact a complex affair with the potential for unintended consequences.More [03/28/2012 12:03:06]
He has not yet become an elder statesman, though his foreign policy credentials are considerable, but he is certainly our ancient mariner, forever tugging at our sleeve to let him tell his tale of what really happened.More [04/10/2012 02:04:07]

Those who remember Washington's cold war culture in the 1980s will recall the shocked reactions to Reagan's intervention.

I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president - with the possible exceptions of Johnson, FDR, and Lincoln - just in terms of what we've gotten done in modern history. But, you know, but when it comes to the economy, we've got a lot more work to do. And we're gonna keep on at it.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I hope I'm wrong, but I am afraid that Iraq is going to turn out to be the greatest disaster in American foreign policy - worse than Vietnam, not in the number who died, but in terms of its unintended consequences and its reverberation throughout the region.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Well, I've been reading a lot about the fifty years since the Second World War, about Western foreign policy and all that. I try not to let it get to me, but sometimes I just think that there's no hope.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

I can't talk about foreign policy like anyone who's spent their life reading and learning foreign policy. But as a citizen in a democracy, it's very important that I participate in that.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I challenge anybody to say that I wouldn't know how to approach foreign policy because, unlike some of the other people, I at least have a foreign policy philosophy, which is an extension of the Reagan philosophy. Peace through strength, and my philosophy is peace through strength and clarity.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
