U.S. global leadership withering under Obama

Ever get the impression that Barack Obama couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a boat?

Our president must have felt like he was fried, flambéed and fricasseed at the U.N. on Monday.

Vladimir Putin, who oozes strength from his pores, stole Obama’s thunder.

The Russian strongman proposed a coup against U.S. global leadership and is seeking to wrest control of a coalition batting ISIS away from America’s grip.

And he wasn’t the only leader of a country at the celebration of the U.N.’s 70th anniversary to challenge the world order based on seven decades of U.S. global leadership.

Chinese President Xi Jinping and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani also chimed in.

The multipolar challenges to U.S. power, including military challenges from Eastern Europe across the Middle East to Asia, are taking the snap out of Uncle Sam’s strut.
