As summarized by Melissa Beaudoin in one of this week’s presentations, the objectives of implementing foreign policy includes preserving the national security, promoting democratic values, human rights, peace, and/or attempting to resolve international problems (Beaudoin, 2019, 1:40). For this discussion board post, I decided to analyze both President Barack Obama’s and President George Bush’s presidential statements addressing foreign policy both with the objective to promote democratic values, human rights, peace, and/or attempt to resolve international problems (Beaudoin, 2019, 1:40; Bush, 2002; Obama, 2011). However, one main difference between President Bush’s and President Obama’s statements are President Bush also focused on national security, while President Obama did not (Bush, 2002; Obama, 2011).
While President Barack Obama and President George Bush are of different political parties, it is clearly evident from their presidential statements that both of these United States (U.S.) Presidents advocated for more involvement in international matters, and thus diverging from our Founding Fathers’ isolationist approach as evidenced by George Washington’s Farewell Address (Beaudoin, 2019, 4:00; Bush, 2002; Obama, 2011; Washington, 1796). In President Bush’s statement, he showcases his passion for national security in addition to international safety and peace in his proclamation warning “[a]ll nations that decide for aggression and terror will pay a price” (Bush, 2002). Additionally, President Bush further proclaims “[w]e will not leave the safety of America and the peace of the planet at the mercy of a few mad terrorists and tyrants” and “… will lift this dark threat from our country and from the world,” along with will helping other nations that need “… military training to fight terror, and we’ll [America] provide it.” (Bush, 2002). Likewise, in President Obama’s speech regarding his pursuit for international security, he expresses his support for our nation’s “… unique role as an anchor of global security and as an advocate for human freedom” further asserting that “… when our interests and values are at stake, we have a responsibility to act” (Obama, 2011). Moreover, both Presidents advocate for the international relationships with allies in pursuit of promoting common values like advocating for better living conditions, liberty, etc., and thus underscoring again some alignment of these politically differing presidents (Bush, 2002; Obama, 2011).
While Bush advocates international relations in promoting “… the tide of liberty…” stating that liberty “… is rising in many other nations,” it is clear from his speech that, in contrast to President Obama’s speech, he is focused on both international and national security promoting a “war” on terror, rather than President Obama who primarily focused on relationships and promoting a non-militaristic strategy in the promotion of American values citing support through specifying the conditions that the people living in Libya were facing (Bush, 2002; Obama, 2011). Therefore, one can conclude that President Bush advocates for the promotion of American values alluding to a “war” on terrorism, injustice, and other immoral acts in foreign nations (Bush, 2002). However, President Bush also argues in favor of promoting peace and defending this peace from terrorists and tyrants as he states “[w]e [the nation] fight, as we always fight, for a just peace — a peace that favors human liberty” and likewise President Bush advocates for “… [building] strong and great power relations when times are good; to help manage crisis when times are bad. America needs partners to preserve the peace, and we will work with every nation that shares this noble goal” (Bush, 2002). Interestingly, this statement aligns with both 1 Peter 3:11 “[t]hey must turn from evil and do good; they must seek peace and pursue it” and Philippians 2:3-4 “[d]o nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others” (The NIV Bible, 1978/2011, Philippians 2:3-4, 1 Peter 3:11).
On the contrary to President Bush who believes in defending peace on a more offensive approach while not waiting for “…threats to fully materialize…,” President Obama generally showed a strong disfavor for military intervention unless necessary such as in cases “… when our interests and values are at stake, we have a responsibility to act,” while also forgoing addressing national/homeland security in his speech unlike President Bush who indisputably declares a “war” on terrorism indicating terrorism is direct threat to both America’s and other nations’ security and peace (Bush, 2002; Obama, 2011). For example, Obama states that while “… there is no question that Libya -– and the world –- would be better off with Qaddafi out of power,” “I, along with many other world leaders, have embraced that goal, and will actively pursue it through non-military means” further arguing that “… broadening our military mission to include regime change would be a mistake” (Obama, 2011). Arguably, it is important when analyzing the presidential speeches, one must remember prior events and the possible impact on the Presidents. For example, President Bush’s statement discussed herein was given shortly after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack, while Obama’s presidential address discussing terrorism was given prior to the terror attack in Benghazi, Libya the following year on September 11-12, 2012. However, while earlier in the President’s speech, with regards to military intervention, he advocates against further military action and shows hesitation to involve the U.S. “… military wherever repression occurs” (Obama, 2011). Nevertheless, President Obama later indicates that because of the threat to “… Benghazi, a city nearly the size of Charlotte, could suffer a massacre that would have reverberated across the region and stained the conscience of the world,” he “… refused to let that happen,” and in consequence “… after consulting the bipartisan leadership of Congress, [he] authorized military action to stop the killing and enforce U.N. Security Council Resolution 1973” and later “… [reported] that we have stopped Qaddafi’s deadly advance” (Obama, 2011). In conclusion, while the U.S. Presidents’ might differ on the political spectrum and the strategies to foreign policies, their indicated goals/objectives for foreign policy are not drastically different as evidenced herein..

Presidential USFP Speeches

I have chosen to compare and contrast the speeches of President Theodore Roosevelt’s corollary to the Monroe Doctrine in 1905 and President Barack Obama’s remarks regarding Libya in 2011.
Starting in chronological order with these addresses, Roosevelt’s continuation of the Monroe Doctrine meant that the United States would intervene in other “civilized nations” if the punishment would fit the crime. However, if the country would participate in a civilized, peaceful manner and form of government without any humanitarian crisis it would be left to its own and to operate as such. Roosevelt would echo multiple times in this speech that egregious violence would be met with force, if necessary (National Archives, 2021). Roosevelt would indicate that if a country would act in a manner that would portray a threat to Americas interests or itself, those actions would be met with appropriate actions including force. Roosevelts intention to not have a violent war or volley of violence was on display but let the listener know that violence was a possibility. This would ultimately set the tone for Obama’s actions over 100 years later.
An obvious difference from Roosevelt’s to Obama’s speech is the context itself. Roosevelt speaks of situations that might arise should certain actions occur. Obama speaks on an action that was taken by the United States and the events that lead to the force being used to begin with. However, where both presidents agree at least through these speeches is that force will be used to protect human rights, Americas interests and the right to democracy.
Obama’s speech was Roosevelt’s warnings put into action. Obama’s speech almost tells us a story, a clear line of events and actions by Qaddafi that lead to the use of force by America. Unjust violence and war against the very own people of Libya, whom a good leader, unlike Qaddafi, would protect and help. Obama said “it was not in our national interest to let that happen” in reference to the attacks on Benghazi by Qaddafi and his forces (Remarks by the President in Address to the Nation on Libya, 2011).
While each speech doesn’t represent an entire presidency and administrations foreign policy goals, the sentiment was still the same, should things get bad enough, the United States would step in to help restore peace. Assisting nations in restoring justice is not a new characteristic of America or the world, Psalms 82:3 says “give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute”. A practice far before the time of either administration mention here, but a lesson rooted in the American spirit.
