QOTD: "[Former Rep. Pete] Hoekstra argued that the U.S. has lost Libya and northern Africa, which has fueled the crisis in Syria and Iraq... “We’ve dug a hole deeper rather than making progress,” he said.

Hoekstra criticized President Obama for believing the “power of his personality” would bring peace to the Middle East.

“This president, as he did in Egypt, as he’s done in Iran, as he’s done in Syria, has decided that in America’s best interest he believes he can manage, work with, but most importantly he believed that because of the power of his personality the radical jihadist movement would fundamentally change their view of America and change their behavior,” he said [citing] a quote from Obama in November 2007 during his first run for president.

“I truly believe that the day I’m inaugurated, not only the country looks at itself differently, but the world looks at America differently,” Obama said at the time. “If I’m reaching out to the Muslim world they understand that I’ve lived in a Muslim country and I may be a Christian, but I also understand their point of view.”" --Nicholas Ballasy
