Don’t do stupid stuff

Obama’s Foreign Policy. Odd indeed

President Barack Obama has stated his foreign policy as a great step of his Administration… after more than five years in office.

What are the pillars of Barack Obama’s foreign policy? “Don’t do stupid Sh*t”

The White House senior staff have been dropping these words in conversations with journalists over the last four weeks. And some journalists have been translating it into their articles in a more sanitized version, “Don’t do stupid stuff”

The Washington Post Editorial of Monday, June 2, 2014 was entitled

‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ emerges as White House foreign policy doctrine

And that is quite odd, as the Times put it

In his second term, a time that presidents typically set about cementing their legacies as statesmen, Mr. Obama has instead settled on a minimalist foreign policy—one that he laid out at West Point and sums up with a saltier version of the phrase, ‘don’t do stupid stuff.’

This is odd enough, isn’t it?

However, as Grandpa would say in the book “The Five Oddities of the Obama Presidency,”

“Obama’s Foreign Policy. Odd indeed!”

“Grandpa, are you referring to ‘Don’t do stupid things’?” Asked JM.

“That is odd. However, not the oddity I’m referring to.”

Yes, I can give you more precise oddities of President Obama’s Foreign Policy, but you will have to wait to my next posts.

You could also start reading some of the oddities at J.M. Malionn’s new book.
