I think most objective observers of the campaign discussions, speeches and debates have come away from those events with the clear message that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are woefully unprepared to step into the offices they're running for ... when it comes to two crucial/important responsibilities: Foreign Policy and National Security:


Foreign Policy: President Obama's Strong and Steady Leadership vs. Romney's Blunder and Bluster - YouTube


Colin Powell Endorses President Obama - YouTube

Policy and approach reflects understanding better than "experience".

Absolutely true - the only man who ever entered upon the office of the presidency with actual experience of conducting foreign policy in it was Grover Cleveland, who took the oath of office in 1893 having already served in the post 1885-1889. No one else has any real experience - there's no internship for the presidency. But clear understanding of the world matters - and as Romney has demonstrated so conclusively, in that account he is bankrupt.

One of the "knocks" on President Obama when he was running for election was that he didn't really have any foreign policy experience...other than being on the foreign relations commitee for a year or two.

So what did he do?.....Added Joe Biden to his ticket as VP- a man with TONS of foreign policy experience under both democrats and republicans.....a wise move by any standard.

Mitt Romney has even less experience than President Obama did.....and what did he do?...

Added Paul Ryan to his ticket as VP- a man with NO foreign policy experience.

I don't get it?...

Those two are two more good reasons not to vote for Obama, but, I don't need any more reason. I am going out today to vote for Romney/Ryan!!!

Not sure why you would post something like this since Obama had NO experience of any kind that qualified him to be president when he was elected. For Obama or his followers to now say that Romney isn't qualified is laughable.

You are not sure because you are about as clueless as the rest of them, on the subject, still assuming "experience" as a pre-requisite for the office and value it more than you do of the person's undertanding and approach.
