Buyer's remorse about Obama?

"If you can spare the hours,
I can tells ya why I cowers,
at the mention of McCain.
If I was any good at thinkin'
you might think that I was Lincoln,
if I only had a brain!"

"I can hear the right wing mutters,
that all I does is stutters,
'cause I did too much cocaine!
If I could give a simple answer,
I wouldn't be the artful dancer,
if I only had a brain!"


Buyer's remorse about Obama?

Public wary of 'amateur president'

Washington Times for complete article

As we approach the final weeks of the 2008 presidential election, it is quite possible that the Democratic nominee, Sen. Barack Obama, will be elected to the highest office in the nation. The real consequences of this are difficult to know in advance, but there are some notable qualities of the Obama candidacy beyond the fact that he would become the first African American to become president of the United States.

I think the most notable is the fact that, considering his experience, Mr. Obama would be the first "amateur" to reach the Oval Office. Technically speaking, Mr. Obama is not a pure amateur, having served in the Illinois state Senate, and completed three years of his first six-year U.S. Senate term. But compared to every other major party candidate for president in the past 100 years, with the exception of 1940 Republican nominee Wendell Willkie, he has the slightest political background of any serious aspirant.

In Mr. Obama, whose primary background in politics was as a community organizer in Illinois, there is little executive experience on which to judge how he might govern. His skillful use of the caucus-system aspect of the presidential nominating process, and his endurance through a late resurgence of his major Democratic opponent in the closing primaries tell us that he has excellent political talent. His oratory before large crowds and record-breaking fundraising ability reinforces these campaign skills.

On the other hand, his behavior and response to the recent international crisis following the Russian invasion of Georgia, indicates his lack of experience in foreign affairs. His public comments were those of an amateur statesman, especially in contrast to his Republican opponent, Sen. John McCain, who had a sober, thoughtful public response.

Wild Thing's comment............

There has been so much media hype on Hussein I keep wondering why or when people will tire of having Obama shoved at them.

I worry about Obama and his potential to do heavy damage to our Constitutional republic. He is an angry guy who is used to getting his way no matter what he has to do.

He's no Lincoln, Kennedy, FDR, or any other gentleman. Mainly because he's not a gentleman. He just can't seem to control that immaturity of his. Whining over little taunts about his ears. (Prince Charles has big ears, too, but you don't see him complaining about them!) and how McPain is doing this to him or that to him. What is he going to do when it comes to actually talking to PeeWee, Meddy, Puddin', Kim Jong Il, Mugabe or any of the other dictators around the world after they've done something to us? He'll run and hide, sucking his thumb in the corner? Let someone else handle it?

Whatever the color of his skin, half-Black or half-White, it is very thin. He doesn't take criticism well. Who wants a vindictive angry president!

Nice of the Washington Post to notice. Too bad it's only ciculated to members of the vast right wing conspiricy.

Lynn, he will probably have a forgeign policy called the Great Whine, to try and get those against us to agree with him.
Yes he will have someone else handle it.

Rhod, yes I did, thank you so much. I am not very good at writing things like this.

Cheryl, heh heh the brainless non-wonder.

Posted by: Wild Thing at August 20, 2008 06:54 PM

Tom, that would be so horrible, all that hate and having it come from the President then work it's way down through both Houses of those on the left. It would really be too much for this country I think.

Odin, yes and when I posted it I had to go back and double check to see if it was the Washington Times or Washington Post. haha

Wild Thing, that was hysterical.
I was singing it aloud while my daughter did the whistling part ;)
Cracked us both up!
Obama is a puppet and when the truth is finally covered by the MSM, it will be too late.
