Colucci: Is there an “Obama Doctrine?”
A commentary written by Ripon College Associate Professor Lamont Colucci, “Is there an ‘Obama Doctrine?’” appeared in the Washington Times this week. In his opinion piece, Colucci, chair of the Ripon College Politics and Government Department, examines the various ways a potential Obama Doctrine might be characterized, considers its relationship to the Nixon, Carter, Clinton, and Bush administrations’ foreign policies, and claims that the Obama doctrine is disjointed.
Colucci writes, “The key to the Obama Doctrine is the need to ‘rebalance American commitments,’ code for managing our decline. His doctrine is more about process than strategy.”
