MSNBC's Alex Wagner: Obama Too 'Reactive' on Foreign Policy

By    |   Tuesday, 04 Mar 2014 07:55 PM

President Barack Obama's foreign policy has been "reactive" for years because "his heart has never been in it," MSNBC host Alex Wagner said Tuesday.

While discussing criticism of Obama's policy in the Ukrainian crisis, Wagner said she thinks the administration couldn't have done anything to prevent Russian President Vladimir Putin from sending troops into the Crimean region.

Still, she said, "it certainly puts the White House in a position where their foreign policy seems incredibly reactive, and has [seemed] so for really almost the recent past, I mean, years at this point."

Obama has shown through his rhetoric that he wants to pivot to Asia, but events have forced him to look to the Middle East and to eastern Europe, she said.

"One gets the sense perhaps his heart has never been in it," Wagner said. "He hasn’t really truly organized or articulated a foreign policy the way that he perhaps would if it was another region of the world."
