Hillary Chides Obama for his Ludicrous Foreign Policy 'Experience'
Barack Obama thinks that living abroad for four years gives him "a better feel" for international issues than other candidates:
‘‘Probably the strongest experience I have in foreign relations is the fact I spent four years overseas when I was a child in Southeast Asia,’’ The fact that he was dead serious when he made that remark left an opening for Clinton:
‘‘Voters will have to judge if living in a foreign country at the age of 10 prepares one to face the big, complex international challenges the next president will face,’’ Clinton said. ‘‘I think we need a president with more experience than that, someone the rest of the world knows, looks up to and has confidence in.’’When one thinks of foreign policy "experience," one tends to look at accomplishments or years spent meeting leaders of other countries and exchanging views.
Obama thinks that his life experience as a 10 year old boy is similar. One might ask the Illinois Senator how many foreign leaders he had dinner with as a boy or how many international crisis he had to deal with - that is, before he had to run home and clean up his room.
Like many of his statements on foreign policy, Obama proves once again he is unfit to hold the highest office in the land. Not only that, he allowed his opponent an opening to make him look ridiculous.
