10 Concerns About Barack Obama

10 Concerns About Barack Obama
By William J. Bennett & Seth Leibsohn

1. Barack Obama’s foreign policy is dangerous, naïve, and betrays a profound misreading of history. For at least the past five years, Democrats and liberals have said our standing in the international community has suffered from a “cowboy” or “go-it-alone” foreign policy. While politicians with favorable views of our president have been elected in Germany, Italy, France, and elsewhere, Barack Obama is giving cause to make our allies even more nervous.


This past Sunday’s Washington Post reported, “European officials are increasingly concerned that Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign pledge to begin direct talks with Iran on its nuclear program without preconditions could potentially rupture U.S. relations with key European allies early in a potential Obama administration.”

Barack Obama’s stance toward Iran is as troubling as it is dangerous. By stating and maintaining that he would negotiate with Iran, “without preconditions,” and within his first year of office, he will give credibility to, and reward for his intransigence, the head of state of the world’s chief sponsor of terrorism. Such a meeting will also undermine and send the exact wrong signal to Iranian dissidents. And, he will lower the prestige of the office of the president:

In his own words he stated, “If we think that meeting with the president is a privilege that has to be earned, I think that reinforces the sense that we stand above the rest of the world at this point in time.” Not only has his stance toward Iran caused concern among our allies in Europe, U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton called it, “Irresponsible and frankly naïve.”

This is a good article about Odumbo - too bad the people who really need to read it won't (and if they do, they won't care).

It's tempting to say that he's just a dangerous and STUPID rookie. In fact he's just a hrd core leftist.

I watched a stunning news clip on FoxNews last night where BHO criticized McCain for supporting opening up new drilling, AND IN THE SAME BREATH said he would institute a new round of "stimulus checks for the truly needy this time to help them overcome the higher cost of fuel." That and a new rounds of taxes on "big oil" were ALL that this painfully stupid, big-eared Marxist offered for solutions.
The lefties are getting what they've always wanted, very high gas prices.

DUCKY (his post used to be there...) We conservatives will always get by--even with an idiot like Obama at the helm--because we're self-reliant and take care of ourselves. It's you Leftists that will start to scream bloody murder as you reap the fallout of his wrongheaded ideas.

So, go ahead and say 'payback's a bitch' (of course that's your basic operating level) but we'll see who laughs last.

The short answer on Obama is this idiot couldn't grab his own ass with both hands and the country had better wake up and realize this or we're in deep trouble. JMac.
