America’s muscles are getting softer, poll finds

I spend a lot of time letting you know about the latest ways that President Obama is messing up things here at home. It’s almost a fulltime job keeping up with all of that, and it seems like nearly every day there’s another example of how he is trashing the Constitution or mismanaging the economy.

But the United States has plenty of issues overseas as well, including the fact that we have lost a lot of respect among the leaders of nations that used to admire us. Between the mixed messages we regularly send to Israel and our inconsistent reactions to humanitarian problems and civil wars in a variety of countries, nobody knows quite what to expect from us anymore.

An equally serious international problem for us is the fact that we seem weaker than we used to be. A powerful U.S. military – and the willingness to use it when appropriate – have served as a warning against countries that might be thinking about invading a neighbor or using a chemical weapon. Even countries that don’t like us understand how important it is for a strong nation like us to play that role.

But when people within the U.S. think we’re getting weaker, certainly those outside the country are thinking the same thing. A recent Fox News poll revealed that 55 percent of U.S. voters believe that the Obama Administration has made America weaker. Voters also disapprove – by a 56 to 34 percentage – of Obama’s foreign policy.

More than two-thirds of those polled believe the Obama Administration is less competent than the Clinton Administration. Only 39 percent approve of his handling of healthcare, while the same percentage approves of his handling of the economy.

Do you believe that America is now stronger, weaker or the same as it was during the George W. Bush Administration? Please chime in on this important subject.
