Hillary Attacks Obama on Foreign Policy

She claims he lacks the necessary experience! She, of course has the necessary experience as she got to watch someone implement such foreign policy successes as Mogadishu, bombing Kosovo, and the North Korean nuclear agreement.

Funny, I have no clue what Obama plans to do as president, other than take more of my money to use towards some no-doubt unproductive purposes. But foreign policy is one area where the election of Barack Obama would pay immediate dividends. First of all, the U.S. would be immediately more liked around the world. Not that being liked is such a big deal - being respected is more important - but right now we are neither liked nor respected, so it would be a step in the right direction.

Second, he would take immediate steps to get us out of Iraq (I'll have to take him at his word, here). Iraq is draining us of money and strength. The money's the real problem - $150 billion a year, at a minimum. So Barack can only help here, no experience required.

Third, he probably has the best sense of the true strategic dangers facing America in the world today - i.e., none. We have no military enemies. We have terrorist threats, but I can't see that Obama is any worse than any other candidate in this regard, and by being less militaristic we'd probably at least reduce the Al Qaeda's recruiting level (while raising our own). So one area of "hope" with a President Obama is we'd start spending significantly less money on unnecessary military activity. The other hope would be that he doesn't just turn around and throw it away on other worthless enterprizes.

So 800 million Hindus in India are going to like us better with a guy named Hussein in office? 1.4 billion (or whatever they're up to) Chinese will like us better or they'll think maybe we have a softer touch in office?

I guess Muslims might look more kindly upon us but they got to hate the USA originally by viewing our lifesytlye as sinfully hedonistic and I don't see Obama changing that. In fact, with a liberal in charge, we would only get more sinfully hedonistic. However, he probably would be less gung ho on Israel and that would have to help.

I dunno...

She's a rocket scientist for coming to this conclusion.
She should be elected pres.

Hillary and Bill Clinton's list of lies will provide journalistic fodder for decades. However, thanks to DNA, Internet, and other technologies, many of their misdeeds have already been exposed, with more to come. Although the Clintons keep on lying, thank goodness for that. Without those blatant lies, increasing the likelihood of their getting caught, they might well have amounted to something: http://theseedsof9-11.com
