Bolton: Obama's Foreign Policy Is 'Confused, Incoherent And Incompetent' And 'Comfortable With American Decline'

This is a rush transcript from “On the Record,” April 26, 2012. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: Vice President Joe Biden goes after Governor Mitt Romney, blasting the governor about his foreign policy. Listen to this.

JOSEPH BIDEN, VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: In the face of the challenges we now understand are ahead of us, what would Governor Romney do? Well, the truth is, we don’t know for certain.

So it seems to me that Governor Romney’s fundamental thinking about the role of the president in foreign policy is fundamentally wrong. Look, in my view, he would take us back to dangerous and discredited policies that would make America less safe and America less secure.

VAN SUSTEREN: Former U.N. ambassador John Bolton joins us. Good evening, sir.


VAN SUSTEREN: So the administration rolls out Vice President Biden to do foreign policy. I guess it’s the start of the general election. What do you think about the vice president’s speech?

    What’s conffusing about it? He’s trying to destroy us !!! Dr.Ron Paul to start to take back our country !!!

    • Chuck says:

      Hey Dummie!   The nomination is over, or can’t you read?   Do us all a favor and shut up!   If you are a conservative, which I doubt, get all the votes you can for the Republican candidate.  

    • Whizkid says:

       Obama surely has a mindset of humbling America as well as instituting “make up” calls for past events, but Ron Paul’s idea of “taking back” our Country is steeped in seriously flawed perspectives that will NEVER be warmly embraced in America–IE: Weak Defense!!  Yes, we probably could cut back in some places around the globe but sitting back and letting Self Proclaimed committed Hares of America will stop at NOTHING to bring America Down!!  Showing weakness only emboldens them.

    • jong says:

       No more socialist in this country .   I guess Paul will have to go with the rest of the nut cases like his good friend Barney Frank.

    • Vmmagilke says:

      I agree! Ron Paul is a Patriot and has been consistent to his principals his entire life. He would be the greatest president of all time.

    She sure stumble bumbles a lot in trying to ask her questions or making her comments. On clips i have seen it is sad to watch her hesitations, restarts, etc..

  3. Remington 870 says:

    Anyone with intelligence knows Obama and his handlers are first and foremost interested in destroying this country. Obama is surrounded by dedicated communists with the goal of turing this great country into a New World Order. We are heading quickly down the path toward anarchy and civil war. If you don’t own a pump shotgun and AR, this will be the best investment you can make. Forget a new car, clothes or computer. Invest in protection. When Obama people come to you home to rob, rape and kill you and your family, you will not be able to fight them with a new phone, clothes or computer. See you on the battlefield.

  4. Rchguns says:

    There is absolutely no question In Diaper in Obama’s thinking on foreign-policy. There is no confusion and there is absolutely nothing incoherent about Obama’s policy. It’s very, very simple: if it’s bad for America it’s good enough for Obama.

    Look at his record is not apologizing for the fact that America is the best country in the world, or bowing in kissing the hand of the proven enemy. Everything he has done has been detrimental to the well-being of America.

    Obama is nothing more than a well-dressed terrorist. He only occasionally appears with his dirty diaper on his head but that changes nothing. The sooner people wake up and see that he wishes to put a suicide vest on Lady liberty and put an and to the American way of life and liberty.

      10 Quotes By Barack Obama About Islam

      #1 “Islam has always been part of America”

      #2 “we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities”

      #3 “These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”

      #4 “America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”

      #5 “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed”

      #6 “Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality”

      #7 “As a young man, I worked in Chicago communities where many found dignity and peace in their Muslim faith.”

      #8 “I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month.”

      #9 “That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”

      #10 “I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”

      10 Quotes By Barack Obama About Christianity

      #1 “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation”

      #2 “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.”

      #3 “Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK and that eating shellfish is an abomination? Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith?”

      #4 “Even those who claim the Bible’s inerrancy make distinctions between Scriptural edicts, sensing that some passages – the Ten Commandments, say, or a belief in Christ’s divinity – are central to Christian faith, while others are more culturally specific and may be modified to accommodate modern life.”

      #5 “The American people intuitively understand this, which is why the majority of Catholics practice birth control and some of those opposed to gay marriage nevertheless are opposed to a Constitutional amendment to ban it. Religious leadership need not accept such wisdom in counseling their flocks, but they should recognize this wisdom in their politics.”

      #6 From Obama’s book, The Audacity of Hope: “I am not willing to have the state deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitation or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sex—nor am I willing to accept a reading of the Bible that considers an obscure line in Romans to be more defining of Christianity than the Sermon on the Mount.”

      #7 “I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell. I can’t imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity. That’s just not part of my religious makeup.”

      #8 “Those opposed to abortion cannot simply invoke God’s will–they have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths.”

      #9 On his support for civil unions for gay couples: “If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount.”

      #10 “I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people.”

      True Biblical Christianity has been under attack for a long time. President Obama claims to be a Christian. I think anyone who has heard him speak who has any sense of discernment knows otherwise. Is a closet Muslim? I don’t know. But one thing is for sure the man is much more sympathetic to his Muslim heritage than to anything Christian.

  5. Samtman says:

    Bolton never met a conflitc that did not mean sending US troops to solve the problem. He was GW Bushes inventor of the Iraq war. 35,000 us casualties one trillion dollars in borrowed from China,we will suffer for many more years from the Iraq war.

    • Rchguns says:

      Sounds like you’re forgetting Afghanistan. As wars go Afghanistan is as bad if not worse of a boondoggle than Vietnam.

      That being said, I will remind you that prior to Diaper Head Obama being put into the White House he publicly stated many times that Afghanistan is the right war and that he would get behind and support the conflict in Afghanistan. So before you get all high and mighty blaming George Bush for everything you might want to look at what the pretend president has done. He’s also the one who borrowed all the money from China.

      There’s nothing worse than a man who will not accept responsibility for his own actions and there can be no better example of this than our present diaper head president. I doubt very seriously that he would ever take responsibility for anything he’s ever done. It probably blames Michelle for the two little kids . This man is a total waste of space and one of the poorest examples of humanity you could ever want.

      But just go ahead and jump on the bandwagon and blame everything on someone else especially George Bush. After all because the synonymy in Japan, he started Katrina, is responsible for the earthquake that hit Haiti, and more the likely cause somebody’s canary to catch cold. If you want to jump on that stupid bandwagon be my guest but before you do take a close look in the mirror and see if that’s the person you want to be.

      • jong says:

         Samtman also seems to forget the great majority of dead in Afghanistan was under the relative short time of Obama.   He also went against all the Generals in removing troops in both areas before the mission was over.

      • Samtman says:

        You need to attend some anger management classes.

    • jong says:

       Did GWB also invent over 30 different terrorist camps that Saddam supported??  Did GWB also invent radio actives and a contract with North Korea to get nuclear weapons that all went to Syria at the fall of his regime??  The People of Iraq will be one day free because Bush gave them a taste of freedom and once gotten they will want more and eventually will not tolerate any thing else.

      • Samtman says:

        No proof of whatsoever of any terrorist camps. Alkaeada was his enemy. No evidence of North Korea helping him. Syria has nothing. The Israelis destroyed anly vestiges of nuclear production.

    • Vmmagilke says:

      Amen.  Bolton is a madman and a very dangerous drunk. He wants to wage war with every country except Israel.

  6. Kategray_ghost says:

    The problem with this administration is that he wants to be the head honcho of the world. Take America down from the inside and change the rules and laws to suit himself. what a putz.

  7. gbandy says:

    Bolton should be appointed Secretary of State he realizes the downfall of the Obama Administration and also understands Foreign Policy from a Pro-American point of view. Santman Viet Nam was not lost by the Fighting men and Women of the US it was lost by the Democrats in Washington. Just in case you did not serve. We won the battles Johnson and his cronies lost the war.

  8. 2War Abn Vet says:

    has been proven again-and-again throughout human history that appeasement doesn’t
    work. Yet Obama appears not to have learned this basic lesson.

  9. ElizabethMC says:

    Bolton was the most competent UN Ambassador we’ve ever had. He has more integrity than all the UN members put together and held nations accountable
    It’s no wonder they got rid of him as fast as they possibly could.
    I would love it if Romney re appointed him!!!!!

    • Vmmagilke says:

      I guess you’ve forgotten Bolton’s drunken brawl while he was Bush’s UN Ambassador.

      • ElizabethMC says:

        I googled this and found nothing. 
        But even so, a drunk Bolton is better than no Bolton at all.

  10. sean murry. says:

    he is comfortable with the American decline.

  11. Does anyone here really take Joe ‘bite-me’ Biden as anything other than a pizz-poor excuse for a stand up comic? 

  12. Victor Magilke says:

    Bolton is a drunk and a madman. If Bolton had his way we would be at war with every country except Israel. Bolton is a loose cannon and Mitt Romney is too smart to appoint Bolton to any position that requires intrgrity, competence and diplomacy!

  13. Victor Magilke says:

    Awesome article Terry. Thanks!
