Ex-general Clark: Romney isn’t qualified to lead military



Published: Sat, November 3, 2012 @ 12:10 a.m.

Former NATO leader Clark stumps for Obama at YSU

SEE ALSO: Ohio ballot to include Duncan for president

By David Skolnick

skolnick@vindy.com

YOUNGSTOWN

Wesley Clark, a retired four-star general and President Barack Obama surrogate, said Mitt Romney has “failed the commander-in-chief test.”

Speaking Friday at Youngstown State University, Clark, a 2004 Democratic presidential candidate, said Romney, the Republican presidential nominee, “has repeatedly attempted to change and reset his pronouncements on foreign policy.”

In response, Christopher Maloney, a Romney campaign spokesman, said, “Mr. Clark’s criticism proves that the president’s allies are not interested in engaging in a meaningful conversation about the Obama administration’s weak foreign policy record during the last week of the campaign.”

A former NATO Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, Clark said that with Romney’s “inexperience, his blustering and the clumsy way he’s maneuvered himself into foreign policy announcement, if he were to become the president, I think we’d be at risk to going back to the same kind of failed policies that we suffered under the administration of George W. Bush or even maybe to the right of” Bush.

Clark said Obama “has been a strong and responsible leader. It’s a complicated and dangerous world out there, and he’s successfully dealing with our enemies. He’s strengthened our alliances, and he’s remained true to the values that make America great.”

Al-Qaida is “weaker” than ever before because of Obama’s aggressive efforts to destroy the militant organization, Clark said.

“But I’m not sure we can trust Mitt Romney” on foreign policy, Clark said.

After our "Community Organizer In Chief" left our Libya staff to die alone and unaided; I'd think real hard about his so-called qualifications.

The fact that one of the former SEALS had a targeting laser trained on the incoming mortar position as he died sort of cries out that he EXPECTED something better of our current leadership.

Our so called commander in chief ordered all military and civilian personnel off the base in Vienna during his first visit to the area after he was elected. We were not allowed back on the base until his plane took off. The news media never reported it, instead filmed him getting off the plane waving at no one except his dem cronies and media. One of our retired Generals was staying in lodging that day and was told to stay in the building. No one was permitted outside the buildings until his motorcade exited the base. Military leader? I think not!

Mr. Romney has as much military experience as Barack Obama when he took office.

However I believe Mitt Romney has more common sense and would not have left the Ambassador to Libya and the 3 others to die.

Obama said not to spike the ball but he loudly proclaimed "GM is alive and Bin Laden is dead". And the President and his minions had the audacity to blame a movie when it was a planned attack. Where is the leadership.

President Obama has not even answered questions in a press conference which need to be answered

Real change will be here in 3 days.

Good Lord.
Common sense? We now know that the two ex-Seals killed in Libya were CIA. (As if any adult couldn't have figured that out.) There was a sizable CIA contigent in Libya with Ambassador Stevens who had fought along with the insurgents to unseat Khaddafi. They had a mission, okay? It probably involved moving Libyan arms to Syria or Turkey on behest of Israel.
Now, while many in the peace movement would have moral qualms about that, it is duplicitous of the Right to blow up the CIA mission for the sake of a campaign.

But that is how low the GOP has sunk these days.

By the way, ignorant Fox viewers, subsequent to his community-organizer job, Barack Obama got a law degree at Harvard, joined a prestigious firm in Chicago, wrote two best selling books, taught Constitutional Law, and served in the Illlinois legislature.

So he did have jobs in addition to community organizing.

16 trillion on it's way to 20 trillion in debt. 12 million unemployed americans. Middleclass income has shrunk again this year. $4 gasoline. College students graduating are finding no opportunities. Blacks account for 14% unemployed while black youth are at 40%. Borrowing money from China to give to other countries. Spent 20 years in the racist goddamn America church. More people put on the welfare dole. Killed Osama.

Great qualifications on top of being a community organizer and voting absent in the senate.

If you heard a year from now that Romney would be CEO of Apple, HP, Cisco or Exxon, you wouldn't think anything of it. But if Obama was CEO, woa, he'd have it bankrupt within one year.

We can't be satisified with another fours years of the same. It will only get worse. Economic expansion is the key to recover and Obama doesn't even know how to manage a lemonade stand.

formerytown- good comment.

Obama also was a disciple of Saul Alinsky, who started the whole mess in Chicago. Now Chicago has as its mayor Rahm Immanuel, who has a dual citizenship- the USA and Israel.

Hillary was a disciple of Saul Alinsky also. They all are in my opinion.

But I'm not a Romney fan. He's ready to go to war for Israel and attack IRAN.

Obama, so far, has tried to diplomatically deal with Israel/Iran/United States and not go to war. But that doesn't mean that he won't give the OK to war with Iran if he gets reelected. After all, although he's avoided war with Iran his 1st term, he's gone to war in Libya, Egypt, the Sudan... during this term.

As far as Wesley Clark is concerned, all I can say is he's got the machine backing him... you know, the international banksters who own our country. And like Obama had these outstanding credentials to be President. C'mon LOL

I'm voting for God for President.

Read my comment other regarding Wesley Clark on the page displaying the Vindy headlines. Clark was promoted by Clinton against the wishes of the Army leadership. Clark is from Arkansas and his grandfather was a DNC member when Roosevelt was nominated. The Army wanted Clark to retire and had no position they wanted to assign him to. Clinton stuck his nose into it and got Clark his promotion. Clark is beholden to Clinton and the DNC, so is it a surprise he supports the Obamunist? Clark was not well liked during his Army career and folks were happy to see him retire.

Obama: community agitator, radical student activist, associate with Marxists and Communists, no real job in his life. Miserable record as Illinois legislator. Silver tongue attached to an empty suit. Master manipulator and deceiver.

Romney: very successful businessman, international business experience, saved many companies from bankruptcy that otherwise would have failed anyway, recommended the correct and most economical way for GM and Chrysler to be reorganized, love this country where the Obamunist wants class warfare, Marxist policies, and division.

If you can't tell the difference, you have a genetic defect and are truly living the parasite class existence. We'll get what we vote for, so when the country continues to go in the toilet with Obama if he gets four more years, just look in the mirror

From Vindy user "thethinker":

General Clark, who sits on the board of an oil company in which George Soros owns 20 percent interest, is not one to talk about any commander test.

He is obviously a very well educated person, but suffers from judgment problems, not necessarily helpful for a commander.

Clark almost blew the Kosovo peace agreement all by himself.

In 2000, he ordered the British to block Russian troops at an airfield in Kosovo, and the British Commanding General responded that he wasn't going to start World War III for Clark. A second order from Clark to the British to block the runways was also ignored by the British commander, and backed up by the British government.

During Clark's leadership in Kosovo, the Chinese embassy was bombed. He made numerous television appearances about the Kosovo conflict and was ordered by his superiors to keep his face of the blanking tv.

Clark currently serves as an advisor to the Romanian government on economics.

He has been a Democratic Party candidate and operative for years.

Why is it permissable for retired Generals to enter politics and speak on matters of national interest criticizing the President, but not for Navy SEALS?

Double standard.

He is not the best guy to be telling Romney about being a commander.

Now that the photos have been taken of Obama in NYC, he hops on his plane and forgets the devistation he leaves behind. Four days before people on Statin Island see any kind of relief efforts. To me, this is worse than the disaster of Katrina. However, by making an appearance, the foolish American's think he has general concern for them. No clean water, no heat, no electricity, no food, medicine or anything left to call home.

But the President of the United States feels it's more important to hop on board the luxury of Air Force One, and campaign. Of course he states "we will do whatever it takes to rebuild". Rebuild. huh..another lie. Right now, he has stated in his campaign that ending the war in Iraq, he will use that money to invest here at home, to creat jobs and build new infastructure. What he didn't tell the American people is that the money for the war in Iraq has all been borrowed. So again, a lie. Do we want to continue to borrow from China to build jobs in America? All this President has done is lied, one after the other, and yet with his gift of the tongue, he gets people to follow him.

I am an Ohioan. When the president was here at Ohio State University, he drew a crowd by bringing entertainment and Pizza to his ralley. Drawing the young voters. Most of whom haven't made it into the "real world" yet. After he was finished, he told the crowd, Now see all those busses? They will take you to the early voting polls." And who are you going to vote for?" Many here in Columbus, Ohio saw this as down right voter intimidation. But nothing came of the filed paperwork. The judge threw it out of court.

A President who fully knew, every minute what was happening in Libya, but yet looks into the camera to viewers at home, and says he was totally unaware of what was going on or he would have beefed up security. Today we are minus three innocent people, because of his wrecklessness.

He has also commited an "act of war" in Libya and broken the constitution by not asking congress to become involved, but made the decision himself. This President has done nothing to show me he deserves his title. I will use the quote of his wife during the first campaign, however, I will change a word. "I have never been so ashamed to be an American citizen".

Obama gave money to wall street, he printed money to give Americans rebates to buy property. Look what happened. Today we have more people forclosed on than ever in the history of our country. Wall Street money makers still take home billions at our expense. Now he wants to inact Obamacare which will put many people on the street.

Business's will close due to the heavy tax rates he is imposing on them, and the fines and penalties of his govenment controlled medical plan.

Do you really think the middle class will not pay for this. Then he fooled you again.

Check the facts.

You Americans who stand behind a man who attended a church of hatred for other human life, and will stop at nothing to win the Presidency, including thug like behavior toward his opponent, will come to see the worst. when our enemies are praising him as the best candidate for the job, they are not endorsing an honest good man. They have no interest in America, but they do know they will be free to continue to build bombs, and destroy and masacre their own people. Today Russia stated that the Western country better not try to stop anything going on in Syria. And why such a threat? They know they have the power over what used to be the strongest Country in the World. We are no longer the leader, we are no longer in power. Obama wants to downsize the military. What great idea is that?

The next war will be held on american soil, but by then it will be to late. I leave you with what was told to us shortly after the NYC bombings of September 11th. The terriorists made a bold statement that the next time "they will destroy the American economy from the inside out". Is this playing out now? Think before you vote...and for all of us who believe. God Bless America.

If Wesley Clark or Colin Powell or Jesus Christ want to "endorse" President Obama, so what? What does that mean?

Hope you're not offended."

And if the Big Guy didn't strike me dead, that's exactly what I would do: look at the record, think it through, and that's how I would decide- and how we all should decide- this coming Tuesday. My decision is clear and I won't go into it except to say that having a Four Year Disaster on our hands is no reason to make it an Eight Year Disaster.

@sam

I've looked over the comments here and you are right. I am doing as much or more name calling than anybody. I apologize for the unkind words I directed at you and will work harder to stay on topic and avoid the inflammatory language. To address some of your points:

Liberal media bias is real and well known. See Newsbusters, Media Research Council, etc. Often times news that does not conform to the liberal agenda is not covered much or at all in the MSM. This fact drives some truth-seekers to alternate media sources. People seeking truth have no choice but to visit alternate sources since CNN, etc. either will not cover the issues or cover them sparingly at best.

As an example I cite the embassy debacle. There is almost no coverage in the MSM. If one is to consider the issue legitimate then where is one to go for news? This is the fault of the lib dems in control of the MSM and not the truth seekers.

Cambridge and others continually pull a page from the lib dem playbook and denigrate legitimate journalism outlets such a Fox News, etc., as if these outlets report nothing but untruth. That is a lie. Further, they portend that their news sources are unquestionably legitimate. The truth is the truth no matter where it comes from. If a source presents legitimate data then who cares? Only the prog libs care since the data doesn't fit their narrative.

Blogs, emails, news and aggregation sites are also legitimate as long as the data is legitimate. Some of the references I provided originate in news aggregation sites. WZ is a news aggregator, meaning they do not write the stories, they collect them from other sources and present them on one site. One has to read the story and/or follow the reference to reach the original article. There is nothing questionable about that.

@Sam

"your sources claim that Obama spent $10.3 trillion on welfare, to put it mildly, is a mis-truth. ...please look at a legitimate source..."

The source is a legitimate article published on Heritage and I provided the link. You have to spend the time to investigate the piece if you want to comment on it. The claim is that Obama spends more in a single year on welfare than GWB spent on wars over eight years. The sum in the title is NOT the amount spent on welfare in a single year. You have to read the article to understand the arguments. The article is legitimate and cites sources. You may have misunderstood the point or not read thoroughly. The claim is correct.

"weekly standard.com/blog. /blog. dude, your source is a blog comment."

No, Sam. This is the Weekly Standard. It is a magazine. You have to go read the article and see the references. Just because the word "blog" appears in the URL doesn't mean it is simply a single dude in his mother's basement. This is a legitimate source and you aren't seeing it because you aren't investing the time and energy to see it.

"... CNS news looks pretty biased."

It isn't. CNS News is an unbiased journalism outlet that has been around for approaching fifteen years. The information presented from this source is accurate. Check their references in the article.

And what I am addressing here is the same old point: the prog libs spend more time criticizing sources then they do investigating the facts presented often times because the point does not agree with the prog lib agenda. If that is not what you are doing then I withdraw the criticism in your case but the others here are engaged in the practice continually.

News aggregation services, such as some I referenced above, gather information from other outlets. People have been trying to make sport of Weasel Zippers, a news aggregation site with an interest in matters important to the State of Israel, U.S. Conservatives generally. But to claim their name raises doubt or their information is inaccurate is wrong. Take a look at the sources of aggregation just across a single first page look:

Weekly Standard
Washington Examiner
Getty Images
The Brooklyn Paper
CBS News Affiliate
Tampa Bay Times
Fox News Affiliate
MSNBC
Fox News
Daily Caller
Politico
Newsbusters
Townhall
Twitter
Buzzfeed
Cleveland.com
Twitchy
ABC News

That is a rather well-read and well-heeled list. I would place aggregation across these sources far, far above the level of the Vindicator. Maybe we could drop the thin criticism of the sources until we take a reasonable look and critically evaluate the source, articles and sites included. That is fair.

Obama has led us out of two wars started by GWB who also caused this economic mess by borrowing the money for the wars while giving out tax cuts especially to the wealthy.People complain about the deficit and worry about their kids having to pay for it but holler when asked to help bring it down by a tax increase.Always want the other guy to pay for it.Very selfish

All you OBAMA supporters better think again you will be paying more taxes from his Obamacare! I do not understand why people from Ohio are so ignorant when it comes to Obama??? Things are so bad now, I am a middle class working person and things are getting worse not better. I do not care what statistics are reported, they can come up with whatever numbers they want to report. I know from what I have experienced under Obama. I was better off when Bush was president. WAKE UP PEOPLE, if you are doing better it is because you are on Welfare.

I know, you voted for Romney and prior to that Bush. No wonder you write and speak like a sore, racist, anger man. Are you that? I think so. Blame game.

IT SEEMS TO ME THAT ROMNEY SOUGHT DEFERMENTS FROM THE MILITARY. . .BEING A PACIFICIST. . .SO THAT HE COULD DO MISSIONARY WORK IN FRANCE!!! THAT'S RIGHT FRANCE. . .AND THEN HE WANTED US TO ELECT HIM COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF FOR A MILITARY THAT HE REFUSED TO SERVE IN!!
