Obama’s Foreign Policy Approval Rating Plunges After Mideast Turmoil

(CNSNews.com) – The first opinion poll to be conducted after last week’s deadly attack on a U.S. consulate in Libya and a spate of anti-American protests across the Muslim world has recorded a five-point drop in approval for President Obama’s handling of foreign policy.

The NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released Tuesday found the president’s foreign policy approval among registered voters at 49 percent, down from 54 percent one month earlier.

“The fall was steeper among independents, going from 53 percent in August to 41 percent,” NBC reported.

Obama's vision for America....

in his own words.


The wars will continue.

Protect your assets and profit from the greatest wealth transfer in history.

Actually, I approve - of things like...

1. NOT meeting with the Israeli Prime Minister. Obama just gave him 3.1 BILLION effing DOLLARS. What the hell more does he want???

2. NOT intervening in Syria

3. NOT intervening in Egypt

Obama dropped the ball on bombing Lybia and not getting out of Afghanistan.

And he hasn't ended a dime of U.S. foreign aid.

But on some things I agree with the policy.

Let's get OUT of the middle east and end ALL foreign aid to EVERY country in the world.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

It'll plunge even more

when the numbers come out that 6 million people will be fined for not buying healthcare Insurance. The tax that wasn't a tax that is now a tax. Obama is crazy.

Keepin' it real.

Quit studying these clowns.

Quit studying these clowns. Study liberty and spread the message. Everything else is FLUFF!

Romney's foreign policy is

Romney's foreign policy is even worse & more frightening - if such a thing is even possible. It is being run by Likud, Netanyahu and same neo-con gang in charge during Dubya's time.

Immoral funding of Military Industrial Complex by Federal Reserve and US taxation system must stop!!!! End illegal/unconstitutional wars! Preserve US currency!

This is so sad,

Pull the troops, and you win, it doesn't matter if it's Obama or Romney, if they say it, they WILL win.

The sad part is, they both have agreed to the same policy, and also have agreed not to sway. So they will make issues of other things.

I mean, am I crazy? If either one of them stands up and says, "We're comin' home", honestly tell me they won't win with a landslide!

A Nobel Peace Price Winner who only knows how to make war.

This makes perfect sense in our present upside-down world.

In my correct but imaginary right-side up world, President Ron Paul is campaigning for his second term right now. He is comfortably ahead of Hilary Clinton 2:1 in the latest Gallop Poll. Imagine that!
