Our Unrealist President

In National Review Online, AHS speaker Elbridge Colby explains why Obama’s foreign policy has been quite far from what you’d expect of a realist:

"The truth is that Obama is no realist. The president might approve of restraint in international affairs; he might be skeptical of grand projects, ambivalent about the promotion of democracy and human rights, and even inclined toward retrenchment. But that doesn’t make him a realist."
