Excerpts from Breitbart. Read the full editorial here.
In 2008, the RNC warned what would happen if Americans voted to elevate one of the least experienced presidential candidates in history to the Oval Office.
Like boarding a plane with a pilot who has never flown, we would be trusting the security of our nation to a man with no executive experience and a thin foreign policy resume...
Enter President Obama’s recent handling of the Syrian Conflict: a batch of mixed messages to the American people and a Congressional sales pitch that convinced more people to vote against his proposal than in favor. Five years of on-the-job-training later, we have a president who cornered himself in what can only be described as a foreign policy debacle.
Worse, he had no plan and no experience on how to get out.
A day after Syria threatened retaliation and Vladimir Putin offered Obama an escape route, our President took the bait and handed a victory to Syria and Russia.
It’s not just Republicans who are questioning his leadership. His performance is so haphazard, he disappointed even his most ardent supporters.
His struggling poll numbers shows he isn’t winning over the American public either.
Republicans expressed concerns years ago. Obama wasn’t ready to lead then, and his train wreck policies prove he isn’t ready to lead now.
