Criticism of the President's Policies

Regarding the editorial "Domestic Policy, Foreign Policy," Nov. 7: Does President Bush have a foreign policy? Is it foreign "policy" to wait for an international event and then react to it?What course has Bush charted for the disintegrating Soviet Union or the emergent democracies in Eastern Europe? In China, it appears the Bush "policy" is live and let live - democracy in Haiti is apparently of greater concern than democracy in China. This editorial's focus on the Middle East peace conference obscures the president's lack of foreign policy elsewhere. The author is, however, rightly concerned with the possibility of demagoguery on the issue. Recent history is replete with examples of political stunts displacing a serious discussion of pressing issues. Tim Dixon, Florence, Ala.
