    Mort Zuckerman: World Sees Obama as Incompetent and AmateurThe president is well-intentioned but can't walk the walk on the world stage

    "The reviews of Obama's performance have been disappointing. He has seemed uncomfortable in the role of leading other nations, and often seems to suggest there is nothing special about America's role in the world. The global community was puzzled over the pictures of Obama bowing to some of the world's leaders and surprised by his gratuitous criticisms of and apologies for America's foreign policy under the previous administration of George W. Bush. One Middle East authority, Fouad Ajami, pointed out that Obama seems unaware that it is bad form and even a great moral lapse to speak ill of one's own tribe while in the lands of others.

    Even in Britain, for decades our closest ally, the talk in the press—supported by polls—is about the end of the "special relationship" with America. French President Nicolas Sarkozy openly criticized Obama for months, including a direct attack on his policies at the United Nations. ... Vladimir Putin of Russia has publicly scorned a number of Obama's visions.

    As the former president of the Council on Foreign Relations, Les Gelb, put it, there is "the impression that Obama might confuse speeches with policy." ... unable to budge any Arab leader.

    Strategic decisions go well beyond being smart, which Obama certainly is. They must be based on experience that discerns what works, what doesn't—and why. This requires experienced staffing, which Obama and his top appointees simply do not seem to have.

    ...a critical mass of influential people in world affairs who once held high hopes for the president have begun to wonder whether they misjudged the man. They are no longer dazzled by his rock star personality and there is a sense that there is something amateurish and even incompetent about how Obama is managing U.S. power."

    Well, are you ready to apologize, and return to reality? I see signs of it...

    Good post, people for the most part go for the nicely packaged product no matter if it has anything of value inside the package. obama is a great orator, but that’s all he has no substance and is an empty suit.

    "... obama is a great orator, but that’s all he has no substance and is an empty suit..."
    So clear, so obvious...yet our left wing friends have a psychological inertia that -at least in public- will not allow them to let go of the progaganda/agenda that they imbibed during the Bush years.

    You are new to this board, but at the start of the veneration, there were so many voices and avatars, a veritable tidal wave of Obama support...now, more of the opposite.

    Actually, it was more fun the other way, but now, with the handwriting on the wall, we may be facing an immense silence, as it would be far too adult to admit the error of Obama.

    Apologize because Mort Zuckerman doesn't like the job Obama is doing? Why do you people keep tossing OPED out as if it's anything more than opinion? Although I do recognize a concerted effort by Obama's detractors to try and paint him as Jimmy Carter: "Nice guy, but too nice to be a leader." It's a theme I see more and more of these days.

    Even if I bought Zuckerman's claims, which I don't, considering the disaster that was George W. Bush an apology will not be forthcoming.

    Instead of pointing fingers at those of us that supported Obama, why don't you all do something significantly more useful like try and find a viable candidate to unseat him in 2012.

    Hell, at this stage of the game, even a platform would be an improvement.

    If Obama screws up the country, then it's going to hurt everyone regardless of how they voted.

    For Christ's sake, this isn't baseball.

    This is the first line:

    President Obama came into office as the heir to a great foreign policy legacy enjoyed by every recent U.S. president.

    What?!

    Whatever would you do without George Bush comparisons? Alert, it's less than 2.5 years t the next election and GW been gone over a 18 months. His mistakes/lies/incompetencies do nothing to improve what a disaster Obama is.
