Foreign Policy: Mainly focused on the policy of containment, the Idea of keeping Communism where it was. The United States was using its political and economic influence in Europe to try and lessen the power of Communist forces.

Domestic Policy: Supporting business as well as expanding the middle class became popular ideas. We also saw a rise in popularity of Suburbs and a growth in the white-collar work force.
There are books written on this topic. The Cold War was the defining feature of American foreign policy for decades. The Soviet Union was believed to be an imperialist threat to the entire world. The US and the Western world needed to prevent the USSR from rolling across countries the same way they rolled across Eastern Europe after World War II. *The Cold War reinforced the perdominant US policy of paranoia and the ideal of "if we don't do it first they will". The proliferation of nuclear arms during this period has since amplified the notion that America is better than all other countries in the world, and should have "first dibs", e.g. when saying that they should secure America's right to occupy space, beyond all of what is normal acceptable patriotism. *

Foreign policy was isolationist and domestic policy was more of taking care of problems in our own country rather than worrying about the world.
