Why Obama Opposed the Iraq War

July 7, 2007 at 11:29 am 2 comments

In these clip Barack Obama explains the thought process in 2002 that led him to believe that the invasion of Iraq was a bad idea. It shows how his consultations experts on foreign policy combined with his legal training at Harvard and his experiences in Indonesia and Kenya to inform his thinking in deciding to oppose an invasion of Iraq.  

That’s so much different that how the so-called leaders we have today operate.

    Obama’s experience is the experience that counts most; the experience that helps a leader in making the right judgment, like standing up against the Iraqi invasion in 2002, and outlining most of the possible consequences and unfortunately came true.

    George Bush was a two-term Governor of huge Texas but see what he landed us into in Iraq.

    Obama is the most experienced of the Democratic bunch. He has the experience that leads to good judgment.

    I bet Obama would have been able to persuade Congress in 2002 to stop George Bush from invading Iraq had he been in the Senate then.

    Hillary has 15 years in Washington, but could not make the right judgment when it mattered most. Her experience is actually bad for America; it has cost us thousands in lives and billions of dollars.

    Who needs the scores of years in Washington that could not make the right judgments in the White House for another 8 years?

    I don’t, how about you?

    My feeling is that we need a big changed in the White House if we are to get our country back on track. That we need someone who values looking at problems and opportunities from all sides and making decisions based on facts, not politically motivated fiction.

    I am on record as supporting Obama’s candidacy for the presidency.
