1. Obama said we need more Arabic translators in Afghanistan. This and his statement about visiting 57 states are further evidence that the man is slow-witted and ignorant. At my most fatigued, I would never make either gaffe -- although I might misspell potato.
3. Dick Morris writes a good line:
A candidate who cannot get elected is being nominated by a party that cannot be defeated, while a candidate who is eminently electable is running as the nominee of a party doomed to defeat.
My only problem with this is the idea that the Republicans are "doomed to defeat." I am suspicious because this is what the MSM want to believe -- and I have learned over the years that the MSM's desires become CW and don't always reflect reality.
"We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK," Obama said. "That's not leadership. That's not going to happen," he added." -- Barack Obama
Yes, we can't drive SUV's, eat all we want and be comfortable in our homes because France might disapprove.
This fool might be the next President of the United States.
5. PrestoPundit makes a point I fear is true:
IF YOU LISTEN to Barack Obama speak for more than 30 seconds on the history of American foreign policy everything becomes clear. Obama is the candidate for stupid people. If you're not one of the stupid people, you well know that the leading product from the government schools is stupid people. And if you're fooled by the fact that Obama leads among grad school types, trust me, I've gone to grad school, and grad schools are full of people who don't read newspapers, don't know American history, don't know economics, don't know science, and believe whatever the latest left wing conspiracy theory might be. From the point of view of government policy, they are very stupid people. Often enough Obama suggest he's really not so far from being one of them.
6. The GOP at the trough. Obscene.
When enough Americans ask, "By what right do these politicians buy votes with my money?" then maybe we'll get some change. But how many Americans is enough?
