President Obama will not meet with world leaders as they gather in New York for the United Nations General Assembly. Whether it's because he's too busy campaigning or because he doesn't want to create headlines, opening himself up for attack, the move is being criticized by those on the right and the left.
What Obama's critics fail to note is that, despite being indisposed, he did take time out between television appearances to send quick messages to world leaders. We got our hands on a few of those messages, which we're now sharing with the world…

Leave it to the Democrats to honor the Ruskies. During the DNC tribute to war veterans, an image of a Soviet-era Russian warship appeared behind them on the screen. Is this what all the characters in Red Dawn fought and died for?
That's not even the worst of it…

We already know the Obama administration is demonstrably weak in the face of Iran aggression. After all, as CNN recently reported, "Iran already has a missile that could reach the U.S. if it could put it on a ship and move it to within 600 miles of the American coastline."
Though the sanctions imposed on the Iranian regime are the toughest in history, the Obama regime has done nothing to protect us against the threat of the Iranian space program, which can put a rocket on the surface of Mars, if only someone moves it within 600 miles of orbit. Their secret police can beat us with their fists, if only someone places them with 12 inches of our noses.
While this aspect of Barack Obama's appeasing foreign policy is well known, less remarked upon is his cowardice in the face of the Soviet menace.
It's an existential threat well documented by the Romney campaign, which in April warned of Soviet advance in the Arctic as well as the peril facing "Czechoslovakia." Yesterday, Romney foreign policy surrogate Rich Williamson voiced his concern about the only union Republicans are in favor of resurrecting…
A foreign policy adviser to Mitt Romney's campaign warned against policies that would aid "the Soviet Union" Wednesday, making him at least the third person from Team Romney — including Romney himself — to refer to a country that hasn't existed since 1991 in the course of attacking President Obama’s foreign policy…
Williamson was condemning the Obama approach to Syria. He called the country "strategically important to the Soviet Union."
Though Russian policy ranks decidedly low on the list of voter concerns, perhaps the Romney campaign's belligerent security stances will discourage voters who don't want a repeat of the Bush administration's war making. While in America you politicize foreign policy, in Romney's Retroactively Resurrected Soviet Union, foreign policy politicizes you.
