  • I don' t agree with any of their policies and I don't think "he" actually has any policies, he seems to only be interested in traveling here, yonder and there, as if he is in some popularity contest. He delegates everything to Nancy, she screws it up even more than it already was and he just signs whatever she comes up with!!! Nothing they do makes any sense to me... :(

  • When it comes to national defense issues, he is clueless. Thank God Petraeus is still around,or we would be defenseless. He lacks respect from our military personnell, that says it all.

  • He has defense polices? Please post a link. Sounds pretty unlikely to me.

  • I don't agree with Obama's "judgement" on engaging in talks with the Taliban. I still haven't heard anything about the Military Families Advisory Board that Obama was going to create. I am not sure how he is going to deploy 17,000 troops, leave 50,000 troops and still promise Stop Loss will be ended completely. His "Civilian Assistance Corps" is vague. To me it appears to be a manipulation of Americans mindset to participate in federal government "community services". When professionals participate, they will most likely lose benefits and income.  I don't see how this will be productive in the long term.

  • I think Obama will make some of the same decisions GWB made, once he sees the situation with all of the details. I think he is going to balance protecting the country and protecting the countries relationship and reputation with other countries. I agree with his policies on Aphganistan but strongly disagree with his decision to close GTMO.

  • He has none. You can't talk your enemy to death. Right now we have 3 incidents no response, China surrounding our navy ship in international waters, N. Korea threatening with nuclear missile, Iran has components to build nuclear missile. No strategy.
