Obama - Commander in Chief?

Barack Hussein Obama seems to be making one foreign policy mistake after another. He must recognize that his lack of foreign policy experience is his biggest weakness. However, his recent statements aren't helping much. First Obama promised to meet with every dictator, thug, or leader of a terrorist nation that will have him. Next he would invade Pakistan, one of our only allies in the region. Then he promised never to use nuclear weapons (I hope our world never sees the use of these weapons again, but I will side with Hillary Clinton on this one: "I don't believe that any president should make any blanket statements with respect to the use or non-use of nuclear weapons.") Now, Romney is calling him to the carpet for saying that our troops in Afghanistan are "just air-raiding villages and killing civilians." A horrible and untrue accusation against US troops. Obama may offer "hope" (whatever that means, I'm guessing higher taxes), but he appears to be not quite ready for prime time, and Shrillary is taking full advantage.

I'm still on record as saying that he will be our next president... not that I'm elated about that, but I'm predicting it.

Also, I never thought I'd hear the phrase "I'm siding with Hilary" coming from you.

Obama polls well with all voters, but Hillary is far ahead in terms of the primary. But it's still early, you could be right. I don't side with Hillary on much, but I thought I'd throw that in there for the benefit of the libs who read this.
