Obama – On The Objective Of His Trip

From the CBS News program Face The Nation, via YouTube:

Lara Logan: “Is this trip partly aimed at overcoming that concern, that, you know, there are doubts among some Americans that you could lead the country at war as commander in chief from day one?”

Obama: “You know, the interesting thing is that the people who are very experienced in foreign affairs, I don’t think have those thoughts. The troops that I’ve been meeting with over the last several days, they don’t seem to have those doubts. The objective of this trip was to have substantive discussions with people like President Karzai or Prime Minister Maliki or President Sarkozy or others who I expect to be dealing with over the next eight to ten years.

“It’s important for me to have a relationship with them early…”

Yes, that is audacity.

And arrogance.
