NYT Reviews Obama Foreign Policy; Doesn't Find Many Successes

Jim Geraghty digests the article so that you don't have to read it. Overall:

It never quite comes out and explicitly says the president’s approach has failed, but the overall picture is withering and bleak.

Among his failings is his inability to even pretend some kind of personal relationship with foreign leaders, which apparently is a Big Thing in the Arab world. And:

Perhaps most significantly, “Months later, administration officials said, Mr. Obama expressed regret about his muted stance on Iran.”

Let’s set the wayback machine to June 16, 2009: “President Obama said Tuesday that it would be counterproductive for the United States “to be seen as meddling” in the disputed Iranian presidential election, dismissing criticism from several leading Republicans that he has failed to speak out forcefully enough on behalf of the Iranian opposition.”

So the Republican critics were right, and President Obama was wrong. Now he sees it.

Obama 2012: Because he now realizes where he botched his Iran policy early on!

If Romney doesn't hit Obama on this admission in the foreign policy debate, I'll hang myself.
