Does Obama's Trip Make Him More Qualified to be President?

Does Obama's Trip Make Him More Qualified to be President?

As Barack Obama tours the Middle East and Europe, he intends to assure voters, by meeting with heads-of-states and US military commanders, that he can keep America safe. Yet, 63 percent of Americans do not think Barack Obama's "fact-finding" trip to the Middle East and Europe makes him more qualified to be president.

The fact that a majority of Americans doubt that Obama will come back with relevant experience may be crucial, since another survey this week shows that 45 percent of respondents think Obama is too inexperienced to be president, up from 41 percent over the past week. (Could his trip actually be backfiring?) Forty-five percent think he has the experience needed.

While Obama's out shoring up facts and relationships with foreign leaders, his campaign is working to maximize the political advantage seemingly available from the well-coordinated trip. But in light of this poll, which shows most Americans don't think it helps his credentials, do you think it's worth it?

Fo show, you stated <blockquote>His drawing was a powerful symbol that people believed in...and died for.</blockquote> I paraphrased based on that and other remarks. You were stating that people died for an image!

Well...the buzz was that he lacked foreign experience..and this was his time to prove himself.

I don't think I ever actually commented on this! I'm in agreement with a lot of people; I don't necessarily think this makes him more qualified, but it doesn't hurt, either.

I'm sorry, but running around in Europe like a chicken with its head cut off, trying to build a "rapport" doesn't do squat. And ANY democrat would've said the same thing if Bush had 8 years ago. He's given speeches, I'm sure made some small talk and sold some merch for the flight home. That doesn't scream "international credibility" in my mind. It just seems like a great summer vacation while on the job. If he wants real credibility, wait 8 more years, work on international committee and then get back to me. Otherwise, just say "Yes, I'm lacking, but I will have a strong cabinet, will learn earnestly and quickly." That, at least, builds rapport. Wow.. 8 years since Bush took the house. I was 13 and knew he was a loser. Hot damn!
