    I voted for Obama because I thought he deserved a chance and because of the historic opportunity to have an African American President. After his irresponsible conduct on a number of issues where he is castigated not only by the right but by the left as well, I have decided that it is irresponsible to vote for him again. The final straw has been his total lack of understanding of the Israel- Arab issue, especially where it involves the Palestinians. He seems to have such little knowledge of issues and strategy that he allows himself to get caught in the pitfalls of Middle East politics that even a novice should be able to avoid, such as giving ultimatums on settlements and Jerusalem that he will ultimately have to backtrack from. He is weak and misguided and I won't vote for him again.
