    Hillary Clinton’s chief campaign strategist, Mark J. Penn, pinpointed Obama’s biggest weakness: “His roots to basic American values and culture are at best limited. I cannot imagine America electing a president during a time of war who is not at his center fundamentally American in his thinking and his values.”[1]

    A willingness to fight America’s enemies and support our own troops are two of those core American values which Obama lacks.

    Nearly 600 captured al Queda and Taliban combatants are being detained at Guantanamo Bay, but Obama has said, “Now, what we need to do is we need to close Guantanamo. We need to send a strong signal that we are going to talk directly to not just our friends but also to our enemies.” [2]

    Kyndra Rotunda, the author of Honor Bound: Inside the Guantanamo Trials, is now a law professor, but during her three tours of duty as a JAG officer she was the legal advisor to the Guantanamo detention camp commander and served as his liason to the ICRC, the international human rights entity that oversees the treatment of prisoners of war.[3]....

    He couldn't close Guantanamo even if he wanted to so most of this is a non-issue. I agree, this is another political empty campaign speech which both sides are equally guilty.

    McCain says he's going to shake up and reform Washington. What in the world does that mean? The president can only reform the executive branch of government if anything which he will replace if he gets the nod. So again, empty campaign speeches.
