case point #673:
Democrat Barack Obama scolded Russia again on Wednesday for invading another country’s sovereign territory while adding a new twist: the United States, he said, should set a better example on that front, too.
The Illinois senator’s opposition to the Iraq war, which his comment clearly referenced, is well known. But this was the first time the Democratic presidential candidate has made a comparison between the U.S. invasion of Iraq and Russia’s recent military activity in Georgia.
“We’ve got to send a clear message to Russia and unify our allies,” Obama told a crowd of supporters in Virginia. “They can’t charge into other countries. Of course it helps if we are leading by example on that point.”
Yeah, we're just like the forces of Vlad the Impaler over there. No difference at all. Nope.
'Course, he's trying to play "I, Barack Am One Of YOU Obama, know your pain," too(does anyone else wonder when he'll get around to actually saying "I feel your pain", just like Bill Clinton?), saying McCain's out of touch, prompting the McCain campaing to put this out:
Does a guy who made more than $4 million last year, just got back from vacation on a private beach in Hawaii and bought his own million-dollar mansion with the help of a convicted felon really want to get into a debate about houses? Does a guy who worries about the price of arugula and thinks regular people “cling” to guns and religion in the face of economic hardship really want to have a debate about who’s in touch with regular Americans? “The reality is that Barack Obama’s plans to raise taxes and opposition to producing more energy here at home as gas prices skyrocket show he’s completely out of touch with the concerns of average Americans.”
which makes me think he'll either get desperate and say something really stupid(er) and get called on it, or change tack entirely. I'm voting for stupid(er). I mean, this guy has gotten used to the media pretty much covering for him on damn near everything, and I get the feeling he thinks he'll continue to have that kind of cover. Which is prime circumstance for idiot statements.
And other idiotic actions, like "Since having my own presidential seal made so many people mad, this time let's just 'borrow' from Harley-Davidson." Yeah, I'm sure that's going over quite well.
Oh, isn't this wonderful? Why so many younger people support Barack Hussein-but-don't-wear-it-out Obama:
Obama is happy to negotiate without conditions, or so he says. He has a new way of dealing with other countries without looking only at American self-interest. This is something quite revolutionary.
I don't know, I kind of thought the President was supposed to look at things primarily from America's view and interests, but what do I know? I don't even think he's a leader that "God has blessed us with." I do, however, have an image of Deity On High popping into her office and saying "Do not blame ME for him." She'd probably hear a capital 'H' in 'him', but that's her problem.
Actually, for something else that could- and should' bite him in the ass bigtime, just go to Riehl World View and start going down through notes on the Annenberg Challenge records that, for some reason, a bunch of people seem desperate to keep out of the public record. There's this on it, too.
Oh, my. THIS should be interesting, too:
A prominent Philadelphia attorney and Hillary Clinton supporter filed suit this afternoon in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic National Committee and the Federal Election Commission. The action seeks an injunction preventing the senator from continuing his candidacy and a court order enjoining the DNC from nominating him next week, all on grounds that Sen. Obama is constitutionally ineligible to run for and hold the office of President of the United States.
Philip Berg, the filing attorney, is a former gubernatorial and senatorial candidate, former chair of the Democratic Party in Montgomery (PA) County, former member of the Democratic State Committee, and former Deputy Attorney General of Pennsylvania. According to Berg, he filed the suit--just days before the DNC is to hold its nominating convention in Denver--for the health of the Democratic Party.
"I filed this action at this time," Berg stated, "to avoid the obvious problems that will occur when the Republican Party raises these issues after Obama is nominated.".
Snork. Hurmmpfle. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! A Clinton supporter, 'to avoid problems from the nasty Republicans'. HAHAHAHAHAHA!
Damn, I almost need a cigarette after that.
