Comments on “described fairly” by Wade McKenzie

"And our foreign policy, described fairly, resembles the last weeks of a bloodthirsty crime family, led to its bitter end by demented octogenarians."

While I might sympathize with Dougherty's negative assessments of American domestic policy, his characterization of contemporary U.S. foreign policy as bloodthirsty, criminal and demented strikes me as outlandish or even silly. Obama administration foreign policy has been relatively prudent, restrained and moderate, in my view. By highlighting "described fairly" in your heading, I take it you're criticizing the notion that it is indeed a fair description and I concur--it isn't.
