If anyone, anytime, anyplace needs further proof of the ignorance and naiveté of Obama on history, defense, national security, etc., one need look no further than this video of a recent speech of his.
“The bomb that fell on Pearl Harbor.”
Earth to Barry: Hundreds of bombs and torpedoes fell on Pearl Harbor. The bomb?
This is a guy half this country is willing to have as President? The most powerful position on the planet? “57 states”?? “The bomb”?
If this man ever was taught anything as a kid, in his Madrassah or when he attended a real school, if he ever watched a movie on important events in our history, if he ever just sat and thought about the world, he could not possibly say these things.
This guy is naive beyond imagining. It is difficult to imagine anyone so ignorant of the country he wants to lead. Other than those who will vote for him.
Above all he is a testament to the failure of two ideas in the United States: Unionized public education – without which no one would be dumb enough to even consider a man with zero experience at ANYTHING as a candidate for President; and Affirmative Action. This guy has no resume. He has held no job. He is a lawyer who has never litigated a case, never argued a brief, never crafted a law; a legislator who has never created legislation, never voted for anything other than for the sake of expediency or straight-down his party line; a man who claims the mantle of bipartisanship who has no bipartisan experience or votes to his credit.
As a Senator he has missed 20% of his votes – voting he was sent there to do. Can you imagine missing 20% of your duties at work and still being employed?
No one ever would have heard of this guy with his oft-rejected McGovern ideas and total lack of experience if he were white. Ask Geraldine Ferraro, or any number of honest Democrats, of which there seem to be fewer and fewer each day. Sure – his constituents can vote him out if they don’t like his work; can they pay him directly so the rest of the states don’t have to pay the salary of a shirker?
Affirmative Action is why he is where he is, pure and simple.
Unionized teachers are why people vote for him, pure and simple.
Often people joke of being operated on by a surgeon who got his education via Affirmative Action rather than through hard work. Imagine a President in wartime there because of the color of his skin? It certainly won’t be because of his experience.
Everyone knows Obama has no experience. To some that’s a good thing. This is the same crowd who votes for a war and then complains they were “lied” into it. The same crowd who believes that every single citizen in a multicultural world thinks the same as an American, desires the same things, including peace and freedom, as do Americans, when this demonstrably is NOT the case.
Again – you can thank unionized teachers for the near-complete dumbing-down of the voter franchise.
