RON HART: Obama foreign policy, Credibility lost is seldom regained

MEMPHIS, TENN. — With all the mistakes made on domestic issues like the economy, ObamaCare, unleashing the IRS on political opponents, rampant regulations, deficit spending, etc., we forget Obama’s disastrous foreign policy.

This is the man who was going to “hit the reset button” and make the world like America again. Instead, he has angered world leaders with his trademark aloof arrogance, slowly eroding his credibility.

Obama will soon meet with world leaders, where he will brief them on the breakup of Bruce Jenner and Kris Kardashian Jenner and on the status of the BCS. He has lost gravitas on pretty much everything else.

The attack on our consulate in Benghazi was not his fault; it was a sitting duck. But sending U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice out to blame it on an obscure, anti-Muslim video was telling. Chefs know: Rice goes with anything.

You know the press has your back when you concoct a story like that. Obama clearly thinks Israel and the U.S. are the problem. The next thing you know, his administration will label “Fiddler on the Roof” an anti-Muslim musical.

Maybe part of our problem with the Arab world is that our diplomats who deal with its leaders are women like Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice. If we have learned anything about Muslim leaders, it's that they love being told what to do by women.

The U.N. is worthless. If you want to hear a bunch of out-of-control, pungent-smelling foreigners argue and scream at people, just take a New York City taxi.
