If Biden follows Obama into the White House we'd have a fourth term of Jimmy Carter at a time when Carter says America is a collapsing superpower losing influence on the world stage (see).
During the 2008 presidential campaign team Obama said about their candidate that his opposition to the Iraq War (the "dumb war" as he called it) was all the proof the American people needed that they could trust his judgement on international affairs, and that he'd make a better, smarter, more effective foreign policy president than George W. Bush-undoing eight years of disaster and restoring Americans prestige and image in the world.
During an April 2008 campaign rally in San Francisco Obama when asked by a reporter about John McCain and Hillary Clinton criticizing his lack of experience in international affairs boasted that “Foreign policy is the area where I am probably most confident that I know more and understand the world better than Senator Clinton and Senator McCain (see)."
In October 2008 at a Seattle fundraiser Joe Biden glowingly said of Obama that he was a man with an unbreakable "spine of steel;" and predicted that as president he'd prove equal to and triumph over any overseas test and challenge to US power coming from "Russia, the Middle East or wherever (see)."
In February 2009 at a security conference in Munich (the city of war causing appeasement) Biden announced that resetting relations with Russia would have a high priority with the Obama administration. Three days later, as an ominous sign of things to come, a US and Russian satellite collided catastrophically over Siberia. This never happened before (see).
In July 2009 Biden in an interview confidently predicted that an " economically and politically weakened Russia would have no choice but to coöperate with America and bend to our [Obama's] will (see)."
On September 17, 2009 (70th anniversary of Stalin's invasion of Poland), in a major appeasement-reset move toward Russia, Obama canceled the deployment of a missile defense shield to Poland and Eastern Europe (see).
In 2011 with the Arab Spring revolt spreading to Syria Obama said that Bashar Assad "had to go." But he did little or nothing to make that happen.
In 2012 Obama confidently predicted that "Assad's days were numbered" as if to say that he'd share the fate of Muammar Kaddafy in Libya and eventually succumb to rebel forces.
In August 2012 Obama confident that Assad wouldn't use chemical weapons drew a red line in the sand warning him of dire consequences if he crossed it and used these terrible weapons. Defiantly Assad crossed it, used them and killed people. Obama did nothing except (with Putin's help) negotiate a worthless treaty with Assad where he agreed to destroy his entire stockpile of WMDs and the infrastructure to make them. Since then Assad has defiantly launched new chemical attacks on his people using chlorine gas, and has destroyed only a fraction of his WMD stockpile (see).
The vital role Russia played in negotiating Syria's (worthless) Chemical Weapons Treaty (prelude to the worthless Iran nuke deal) led Obama to believe that it foreshadowed a partnership between him and Putin in peacefully removing Assad from power.
In his October 2012 debate with Mitt Romney Obama said that his rival was wrong about Russia being America's "number one geopolitical foe" and that he was stuck in a "cold war mentality." The one who was "stuck" was our delusional president on stupid oblivious to reality and thinking he was winning over Putin's heart and mind (see and see).
In 2014 Obama predicted that Russia would be isolated politically, diplomatically and economically if it continued its aggression against Ukraine and annexed Crimea (see).
‘Surprise’: Russia orders U.S. airplanes out of Syrian airspace as it begins airstrikes on anti-Assad rebels, not ISIS · Twitch
Now Obama is predicting that a geopolitically supercharged and surging Russia is stepping into a military "quagmire" in Syria. After so many failed predictions and bad calls on Russia and Syria (Iraq, Iran, Libya, Yemen, Afghanistan, al Qaida, ISIS etc.) what are the chances that the man who boasted seven years ago that foreign policy was his strong suit is right about a coming disastrous "quagmire" for Russia in that war-torn country?
Putin's bombing campaign is too much for us.
BEHOLD OBAMA'S PREDICTED "QUAGMIRE" FOR PUTIN IN SYRIA.
Yeah, it's 1979 Afghanistan all over again for the heedless Russian strongman. If only he had listened to the brilliant, farsighted, Nobel Prize winning mastermind in the White House he wouldn't be in this pickle./sarc.
