Obama wants to talk to Cuba, Venezuela, and Iran without preconditions. In the debate he said this level of diplomacy would not take place at the presidential level.

What does Obama really believe on this?  Look at his website:

Diplomacy: Obama supports tough, direct presidential diplomacy with Iran without preconditions.

Now that’s pretty clear!  I predict this will be scrubbed from his website very soon.  This statement has nothing to do with preparation work- it’s talking about PRESIDENTIAL DIPLOMACY.

Geesh.  Fix your website so we can’t catch your nuance, I mean lie, so fast.

Here’s the link. It should be gone soon.

According to this article from the New York Post, Barack Obama took on the role of Senator, President of the United States, Secretary of State, and UN ambassador while in Iraq this July.

WHILE campaigning in public for a speedy withdrawal of US troops from Iraq, Sen. Barack Obama has tried in private to persuade Iraqi leaders to delay an agreement on a draw-down of the American military presence.

According to Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, Obama made his demand for delay a key theme of his discussions with Iraqi leaders in Baghdad in July.

“He asked why we were not prepared to delay an agreement until after the US elections and the formation of a new administration in Washington,” Zebari said in an interview.

This is beyond arrogant if this is true.  It’s dangerous.

It’s really hard to believe ANYONE can tell you what Obama will do about Iraq.

If you have 8 minutes- assuming you can stomach all of this- please watch this video.  It chronicles many of Obama’s Iraq War positions.

Now please tell me what his position is on the most important foreign policy issue our country faces!

This is the change you can believe in, right?

Changing his mind so many times it takes nearly ten minutes to chronicle his various positions.

Well, Axelrod must be putting on Captain Nuance’s cape right now.

How will they spin this?  About 11,000 RPM?

From August 2nd, 2007:

Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware, one of Obama’s presidential rivals, also criticized Obama’s comments about unilateral military action in Pakistan to pursue terrorists.

“It’s a well-intended notion he has, but it’s a very naive way of figuring out how you’re going to conduct foreign policy,” Biden, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said on National Public Radio’s “The Diane Rehm Show.”

I know this won’t make the Kool-Aid drinkers change their beverage of choice, but reasonable people have to wonder why so many Dems (see article linked) came to the same conclusions about Captain Nuance.

UPDATE:

McCain video makes my point.

How can Obama, running for the higest pay grade in the US government, have his second-in-command disgree with him on this fundamental issue?

Biden voted in 2002 to authorize the Iraq invasion, which Obama opposed from the start.

So Biden’s the pick for foreign policy reasons.  But they disagree on the funding of the war?

I cannot wait to hear how Captain Nuance uhhs, ohhs, and umms out of this one.
