Bad MySpace Move By Barack Obama
South Carolina Debate

The question was if another 9/11 style attack were to occur, will you retaliate? Hillary gave the correct answer. She said if it can be determined who was behind the attack, the retaliation should be swift and strong. Obama did not answer that question right. He went on a detour suggesting it is important to make sure the intelligence is not faulty, blah blah blah.

The answer was Afghanistan, not Iraq. Osama was behind 9/11, and he was in power by proxy in Afghanistan. So the attack to drive the Taliban out of power was a legitimate act of a sovereign country.

Obama has to be careful not to let the ultra left hijack his anti-war agenda.

The Mayor of New York City has to deliver crime control. That is a basic aspect of the job. Similarly the President Of The United States has to offer security. That is a basic part of the job. That is how the office is designed. You are Commander In Chief.

I think Obama got thrown off balance because he for a moment thought it was a trick question to do with his strength: his opposition to the "dumb" war in Iraq. That is not what it was. A lot of Americans do fear there might be another big attack. It might not come in the form of planes. It might be a dirty bomb, it might be something else. We know the intention is there on the part of Al Qaeda. They just have not been able to carry it out yet.

Iraq has been W's trillion dollar mistake. Obama has the right stand. But he does have to deliver on the basics of being Commander In Chief.
