    It was a smart political move for the most part. Where he screwed up is by not meeting with the wounded troops in Landstuhl. That will hurt him. Obama needs now to be careful, though. He is not by any means a foreign affairs expert now. McCain has traveled far more than he. He also has alot more experience in that category. Obama can simply claim a better understanding. His lackeys can spin his rockstar status for him. If he is careful, it can help by those that care alot about our world popularity.

    Very funny post.

    Obama is a foreign policy expert. He has already shown how he can influence the world, and he isn't even president yet. Grampa gave up all his principles when he started kissing George Bush's butt.

    Yeah, right.

    Less than 180 days in Congress. No respect for our troops. Disrepects our nation's symbol at every turn. Hasn't even managed a 7-11 store.

    Very funny post.

    Not to mention his "undivided Jerusalem" comment. If that was not a foreign policy blunder I don't know what is. That comment inflamed Muslims around the world, and shattered Obama's credibility with the Palestinians.

    of course I am Kirk. I am worried about what everyone thinks, Especially when it was Muslims perceptions about how we treat Muslims and the Palestinians that lead to 911 was it not. Have you not said as much on this board before. Was it not you who pointed out that the leader of the 17, 911 terrorist cited the treatment of Palestinians as his main reason for participating in the attack?

    Someone is grasping at straws here, but it is not me kirk it is you.

    First they said he was a "secret Muslim." Now they are saying he is offending the Muslims. Maybe you should make up your minds.

    Go to hell kirk, I have NEVER SAID A WORD about Obama being a Muslim. In fact I have attacked WOW and others for using that bogus claim on this board many times.

    yet again you lump me into a group, and imply I have said things I never said.
