In the year following Obama's election there were several threads on this board that dealt with Obama's leadership skills (a lack of or an abundance of, take your pick) and the role that USA should play on the world stage, AKA Foreign Policy. These threads quickly became divisive and became a whizzing contest between the Liberal Left and the Conservative Right. Four years have passed since those threads started and became archived (or ended up the data dumpster). I guess we are now at a good point to stop for a moment and do a quick review to see if we now have enough information on those two debates and can we come to a consensus on those two debates. Item One: Has Obama displayed the leaderships skills that are required for the office of the US Presidency? Item two: Has the Left Liberal approach to foreign policy in dealing with terrorist, rouge states, China, Russia, and Iran been successful?
