So is the new Democrat Presidential nominee qualified to become the President of the United States?
Just ask the Democrats…
Clinton spokesman, Howard Wolfson
“Senator Obama is a fabulous orator, but we need more than words. We don’t need someone who says one thing and does another, somebody who talks a good game but doesn’t have the courage of their convictions. And on issue after issue, Senator Obama says one thing and does another.”
“[McCain]’s never been the president, but he will put forth his lifetime of experience. I will put forth my lifetime of experience. Senator Obama will put forth a speech he made in 2002.”
“When the cameras are gone and the lights are off, what do you do next? He does not have a record of producing positive change.”
Give me a break. This whole thing is the biggest fairy tale I’ve ever seen.”
“Obama’s gyrations on Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran are not the actions of one imbued with superior intuitive judgment, but rather the machinations of a political opportunist looking to avoid having his fingerprints on any issue that might be controversial, and require real judgment, while preserving his freedom to bludgeon his adversary for actually taking positions as elected office demands. It is hard to discern whether Senator Obama is a man of principle, but it is clear that he is not a man of substance. And that judgment, based on his hollow record, is inescapable.”
“If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman (of any color) he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.”
Democratic Rep. Dan Boren of Oklahoma
Democratic Rep. Dan Boren of Oklahoma said Tuesday Barack Obama is “the most liberal senator” in Congress and he has no intention of endorsing him for the White House.
Boren, the lone Democrat in Oklahoma’s congressional delegate, said that while Obama has talked about working with Republicans, “unfortunately, his record does not reflect working in a bipartisan fashion.”
“Our nominee is not my first choice.”
Anthony Weiner (D-NY)
“Sen. Obama says he’s going to fight for his positions. In order to do that you have to have a position.”
Stephanie Tubbs-Jones (D-OH)
Obama “avoided taking stands on tough issues” like gun control, abortion rights and taxes.
Bottom line, here is how they sum up Obama:
The Clinton campaign sent out an email on Monday calling Obama Karl Rove’s preferred Democratic and blasting Obama for supposedly not understanding his own health care proposal, for lying when he has said he has not harbored presidential ambitions for years, and for allegedly running a slush fund (meaning a leadership political action committee, which he manages in the same manner Clinton runs her own leadership PAC). In other words, the fellow who has inspired thousands–if not millions–is a sleazy, hypocritical, incompetent sham.
But don’t worry, he still has support from his friends… like his convicted fundraiser buddy, Tony Rezko, close friend and family preacher Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright, his Pentagon-bombing colleague and supporter William “Kill all the rich people” Ayers, friend and PLO fundraiser, Rashid Khalidi, and Marxist supporters in all 58 states.
