Representative Chris Van Hollen (D-Md) was asked by Fox News’ Bill Hemmer if he could name a foreign policy success on behalf of the Obama administration.
Van Hollen confidently answered “there are a number” but then had a problem naming just one example. He tried to side-step the question by discussing the importance of focusing on East Asia.
Hemmer rattled off a list of countries experiencing terrorism, war, and bloodshed, “Middle East peace process, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, Ukraine, Russia, Iraq, Egypt. I mean, that’s just a handful.”

“Well, here’s the question. Do we think the U.S. can micromanage events in each of these areas,” Hollen sputters in return.
Van Hollen was hard-pressed to answer Hemmer’s question of these countries being a foreign policy success.
