Here are the results of the Obama Foreign Policy Competence Poll. The results are unscientific, because the participants were not demographically balanced, but the poll contains no internal bias.

I tried to vote several times but it wouldn't accept it. I tried to vote "Very Competent" because I believe that he has great potential, especially if Rmoney and the kids don't interfere like they have in the past 4 years. I agree it would have been nice to pull out of Afghanistan faster and earlier, but I am mindful that there are other forces at work. It would be interesting to know if, had Mr Obama pulled out during his term, would there be the same level of anti Islam in the US that there is today.

Thanks TomCat for the results. I too tried to vote but for some reason it didn't take. However, knowing how computer challenged I am, it very well might been my fault:~). Read and noted.

I regret to say that when I voted, I misread the question and voted "totally incompetent" when I would have voted "totally competent" without any hesitation. Perhaps some of my confidence in President Obama comes from the fact that he succeeded the least effective president in that area (or in any area), but I am impressed with President Obama's efforts and his record. I tried to vote again in order to "neutralize" my vote, but the system wouldn't allow it --which means the system is working as it should --unlike many of Diebold's voting machines!

Thanks, Tomcat!

Oh Susanne - you are a heroine to confess that - only someone strong and calm and confident can confess their occasional errors! I did wonder where those negative votes came from! (Mind you I am mildly dyslexic so can misread/mistype things at any time - and the more ill I get the more it increases - oh dear - mind you I missed that vote!).

So on a liberal site only 39% find him extremely competent?

Obama is very competent on foreign policy because (1) He can tell the difference between crucial issues that require immediate attention and those issues that would be best solved by diplomacy, and (2) He is perceived by many foreign leaders as being knowledgeable of the issues, and (3) He picked a dynamite Secretary of State. (I don't know what will happen after she leaves the office.) Condy Rice also had great potential; if she had served under a different administration, U.S. standing in the international community might have been significantly improved.

I actually votes somewhat competent, but the thing that separated him from completely competent in my view is Afghanistan.

RE: "It wouldn't take mine either but Susanne's completely incompetent covered for me."

Thanks, John! I'm happy to have a mistake of that magnitude off my shoulders!
