I Guess I Thought The Term "Foreign Policy Experience" Meant Something More Consequential

Barack Obama claims that his foreign policy experience just can't be beat. Reason: He has relatives in Kenya, grew up in Indonesia, visited Pakistan for "about three weeks," and had three Pakistani friends while living in college.

In light of all of this, I hereby announce my candidacy for the Presidency of the United States. I made trips to Iran when I was a little kid, lived in London for three months, visited Paris twice, vacationed in Jamaica for about a week and made more trips to Canada than you or I could possibly count.

Okay. Here is a more serious response from the article:

"When John McCain travels on official business, he meets with presidents, prime ministers, foreign and defense ministers, members of parliament, human rights leaders, N.G.O.'s, business leaders and journalists so that he acquires a full understanding of the country he visits and the issues at stake in our relations," said Mark Salter, a senior adviser to Mr. McCain. "Oh, and as Senator Obama may know, he has actually spent some time living abroad as well."

Did Obama stay at a Holiday Inn Express ?

"The most significant events in life are usually the result of unplanned choices."

Hillary Clinton was on Fox & Friends on Tuesday and they asked her to respond. She had this aghast look, like she couldn't believe that she was losing to this idiot.

My fav. thing about that article though is the Saltar response. He certainly knows how to give sarcastic responses.

If Obama's experience is the new benchmark then any flight attendant for an international airline is more qualified to be president.

Why would God invent something like whiskey? To keep the Irish from ruling the world of course

Fighting for conservatism one day at a time.

I read a book by an English author, once. Does that count?
