47. That's not true at all
He said he opposed the war, and he did. When he said he wouldn't know what he had done, that was while Kerry was running for President (and it was a political necessity that he didn't undermine Kerry).

He is a huge proponent of open government and transparency. That's good judgment.

He said we should go after terrorist targets wherever they are. Hillary/McCain have disagreed, but military experts agree with Obama. The current administration went after such targets in Pakistan and no one on the planet thought that was out of line (even the Bush administration gets things right sometimes). That's good judgment.

He gets rid of people that say outrageous things, rather than keeping them around out of misplaced loyalty. That's good judgment.

Time and time again he's shown very good judgment and his ability to learn from mistakes very quickly. Those are qualities we need in a leader (the fact that he is so inspiration is a huge boon as well).
