    Richard Haass is the quintessential member of the foreign policy establishment. Long-time President of the Council on Foreign Relations, Haass has served in Republican and Democrat administrations and advised candidates from both parties. In this election, he has been very critical of Donald Trump.

    So no taint of partisanship can be applied to the normally mild-mannered Haass’ scathing comments on today’s Morning Joe about President Obama’s UN speech of yesterday. After calling the speech a “major disappointment,” Haass unleashed the unkindest cut, saying of Obama’s detached attitude to the crises of the day “this is not the faculty lounge.” Ouch.

    Hmm...., Council on Foreign Relations president Haass, former Gen. Michael Hayden and Scarborough, tear Obama’s UN speech to shreds. Post-American World? The One Worlders have lived in a world stabilized, albeit with ups and down, for two hundred plus years by the Pax Britanica/Pax Americana. Hard fought for human values are being tossed away as they embrace the very form of governmental control that has proved so deadly to millions. Orwell was just off by a few years. All the Progressives Socialists and Obama care about is two things: the destruction of the America we know and love and Obama's worthless legacy.

    Liberals have long lamented American power. Early in Obama's 1st term he embarked on the great American apology tour and he's going out doing the same, maybe even worse. He's never done anything resembling patriotism to this country, ever! He's intentionally weak on defending this nations interests internationally and intentionally critical of American's & American institutions who respect this country, the Constitution and it's tradition of shared values. He talks to UN about world order & is all he's done as president is cause chaos within the country he's leading! I have zero respect for the man.

    LMAO...Yeah, it's been great for everyone, eh?
    Your reactionary nostalgia is seriously parochial.
    Obama sees the reality of our changing world and is trying to position the US to compete and flourish in it, not sulk about the good ole days and fulminate impotently against the latest bogeyman.
    Here, educate yourself:

    He's the nastiest globalist to this date.If he dislikes something Obama said,good.
    Obama leans more Jihadi.I don't like that.
    I'll tell you something right now,America:
    Blacks make up 13.5% of the US.
    More than 65% are not the ignorant EBT people you see rioting.
    Muslims in America,what,1.5%?
    That is a total of about 11.5% of America.
    You're not making our policy for us.
    We're going to do what's best for us and you too;but you're too ignorant to know it.
    You want a war?With 91% of Americans?
    :roflol: Some of them Black seasoned battle soldiers,Rangers,even.
    Rednecks,Yankees,Blacks,Asians,Latinos,the whole nine will come at you.
    Try us.We are America.Not to be messed with.
    Unless you wish to die.

    I have and I see that your source "Slate" is a Washington Post funded and based website. To claim that WAPO, NYT are Progressive Liberal led organs would be an understatement and not to question their sources, motives and ideology would be remiss on the part of any reader/viewer.
