Secretary of State John Kerry believes that President Obama doesn’t get enough credit for his successful foreign policy and blamed the media for any suggestion otherwise.
Kerry pointed to foreign policy successes in Ukraine, Syria, and Iran as an example, praising Obama’s leadership.
Even Ifill appeared surprised by Kerry’s response, pointing out that his views were “not the generally held impression”
Kerry also blamed the “industry in Washington” of “oppositionism” reflected in Congress that called into question Obama’s leadership.
He also dismissed Vice President Dick Cheney’s criticism of Obama’s leadership as “negative” and “wrong” just like the decision to go to war in Iraq.
