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?

Hugh Ohhh.....Here we go again! Welcome back ladies! Lilkimbo- Doesnt the combination of these statements add up to a given point that forms the basis of Hitler's twisted racial views and images that influenced the Germans to believe in him and his symbols of evil and brutality based on Darwinism in which was the ultimate inspiration that lead to the catastrohic holocaust and the launching of the second world war in the pre-Nazi era?

Think about it. If you designed a flag..and led a country...into a world war...using the flag that you designed.

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

Hey Lilkimbo- when did I say swastika caused world war II? I stated- Hitler was an artist. And his racist views and images led the nations to world war II. Stop putting words in my mouth babygirl.

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!

Ah yes, but having both parts of the bill in place would maximize our protection against their incredible douchiness.

I think in regards to those annoying persons if there was a law that you couldn't take their picture or cover them in the news it would be much worse for them personally than exile.

She seems like she'd be really pretty in person. I forgot to mention that I want to pass a bill immediately outlawing all further coverage of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt. I also want to send them into exile. I don't care where, as long as it's far away from here.

I disagree...She was too tan when I saw her and very fake-looking. I guess maybe she was just more made-up or something.

As a straight woman, I can say with all honesty, Tiger Woods' wife, Elin is the hottest woman in person. Hands down.
