Rosen: Obama winning on foreign policy

 Obama: I don't understand why we invaded a country that had nothing to do with 9/11.
Obama: I don't understand why we invaded a country that had nothing to do with 9/11.

Obama just said "Senator McCain is right, I don't understand, I don't understand why we invaded a country that had nothing to do with 9/11. And we are still there ignoring the real problems elsewhere and spending money we don’t have.” BINGO.

Obama is owning this foreign policy discussion.

    I agree I believe Obama is our guy!!! I don't have anything against McCain he just scares me. If he had the answers why hasn't he done anything about it! I am voting for Obama no matter what.

    An economic melt down will end up leading to another world war.

    McCain acts like a little schoolboy. Because Obama said something, then McCain feels like he should get "equal time" to respond. Typical! He sounds just like George Bush. Watch the faces that McCain makes–he is hilarious. SNL should have lots of material off of him as well as the Letterman show. McCain is out of touch with the real world!

    Yeah Obama winning, he is winning on taking 109k of Fannie Mae monies...and taking Fannie Mae and Freddie Macs people and putting them with his campaign. Why in the world would you have people on your campaign that bankrupted a company and give you advice...are you people blind????????

    Senator McCain wants to argue, not about the politics he just wants to argue with Obama about everything. It's time to concentrate on the issues. The American public needs to hear what he plans to do should he become President, not show how upset he can become. Remember discuss Issues not cause confusion.

    Obama is showing much more realistic views regarding foreign policy. According to McCain this surge that is supposedly working how long is it going to take? Unless Iraq starts to take control, we will be there a very long time. Can we afford it financially and globally? Will McCain start a draft to take more aggressive move in Afganistan? Does this mean our children (male or female) will drafted due to poor judgements of the past? War is not the answer!

    We do need to follow Obama's views on Iraq so we may concentrate on Afganistan. Then maybe we will see peace once again.

    Every time McCain launches some attack on obama he just sits back and smiles, like a cat wainting to pounce. kennedyesque.
    This is one smart guy and he's not afraid to show it.

    McCain is just practicing political rhetoric that has slipped him through the political system thus far. Of course McCain did not learn about ploicy when he was practicing his answers, let alone foreign policy remember thats not important. Better yet, it was an elective on his degree plan.
