Poll: Romney or Obama, who’s better for US in Middle East?
Written by 

anti-islam-mohammedTwo weeks ago, foreign policy and the Middle East was hardly mentioned at the Republican and Democratic conventions.

Now, the explosion of emotions over a controversial film that makes fun of Islam has put President Obama’s apologies, Mitt Romney’s denouncement of them and the overall mid-east strategies at front and center as a “hot” political issue, if not a foreign policy crises .



There are also questions being asked whether security was strong enough during a well-known-American high risk period (anniversary of 9/11).

Obama’s opponents are seizing upon this chaotic moment claiming that President Obama is too weak and ineffective to handle foreign policy and in dealing with hostile countries, with the new democracies, with Israel’s defense.

Romney’s opponents claim the governor has no foreign policy experience at all and is more likely to get the country into a war in that delicate part of the world where religious zeal appears to trump sanity.  They also cite Obama's determination and success in killing muslim extremists.

So, given the new importance of the Middle East in Presidential politics, take our Bayoubuzz poll, below: Who do you trust in a foreign policy crises in the Middle East?  Obama or Romney?  

Please pass the poll around to your friends and associates so they can vote.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
