Why the World According To Obama Is A Cause For Concern

Why the World According To Obama Is A Cause For Concern
By Bronwen Maddox

It is hard to take Barack Obama seriously on foreign policy, even though he is making it one of the most prominent angles of his campaign.

The senator from Illinois, who is Hillary Clinton’s constant challenger for the Democratic nomination for president, and whose star quality has given the race its highly charged and unpredictable air, has now challenged his rivals (and President Bush) on the whole sweep of recent US actions abroad.

To some acclaim; David Ignatius, the Washington Post columnist, pronounced yesterday that “over the past month, Obama has been shaping the foreign policy debate for the Democrats - and getting the best of the arguments”.

Then that is only because the others are so inhibited from saying anything definite, on Iraq and elsewhere, that they have said nothing. Obama’s collected thoughts on foreign policy, so far, are an extraordinary mixture of belligerence, evasion and contradiction, which lack the intelligence and coherence of his proposals on other fronts.

As hard as it might be to believe, Obama would be even more of a disaster than Jimmy Carter. Gnaw on that nightmare for a while.

If this bat-eared twit ever gets any where near being the C-in-C, we're dead. J'Mac.
