McCain Says Obama's Views Invite Trouble Abroad

John McCain says Barack Obama's opposition to the Iraq war and preference for collective diplomacy over U.S. leadership would create more trouble and aggression in the world.

McCain spoke today before the American Legion convention in
Phoenix.

He said the next president "must bring to office a clear-eyed
view of our nation's role in the world as the defender of the
oppressed and a force for peace."

McCain argued that Obama is reluctant to lead America to exert
itself in world affairs. Said McCain: "In the end, confusion about
such questions only invites more trouble, violence and
aggression."

McCain has sought to keep foreign affairs prominent in the
campaign debate, because most polls give him an edge over Obama
when voters are asked who is more qualified to be commander in
chief.
Obama addresses the American Legion tomorrow.

    I love Bush policies. He has had a successful 8 years of protecting our sorry buts from terror in this country. Its a fact. He strengthened our military and our ecomonmy. The problems that I hear pointed out are from dems who wont't allow drilling in the US and dems who want the economy to flop. Don't believe that, who controls the house and senate. Who prevented mortgage collapsing? Blame you house and senate, Bush has no control over them. McCain will make a great president with honesty and integrity that Obama simply does not possess. Sorry, you can whine about Bush all you want, we are a red state. Why some people would vote themselves a pay cut is beside me. Why they would wreck our economy....they just don't research what would happen. Glad most of us in NC are smarter than that.

    Democrat policies make our nation weak. Democrats are weak in general. Obama will be a disaster for our nation.

    McCain is right. Obama is a lightweight on foreign policy. Don't make the mistake Biden will be running foreign policy. Jimmy Carter has fully endorsed Obama even before he sewed up the nomination. Those of us old enough to remember Carter's fiasco of everything from a deep recession with high taxes, double digit inflation and unemployment, gas lines, the rise in power of Islamofacism, and the largest hostage situation ever, know what a terrible thing could come from another President like Carter.
