The Limitations of the United States and its President

The Republican party used to follow the precepts of Henry Kissinger (right, pictured with former President Ronald Reagan) in foreign policy--preserving American national interest ran supreme and the country's limitations in foreign policy were taken into consideration. Nowadays, it seems Republicans, and often Democrats as well, don't seem to believe the U.S. possesses any such limitations.
