Obama is a loose cannon with his insults

10Sep08

The comment by Barack Obama yesterday about pig’s with lipstick is another example of the danger we face if he is elected President. In a previous post I commented on Obama’s lack of control over his staff (or possible intentional insulting). Here we have the man himself with a lack of control over the comments he makes. It does not matter whether the comment was in regards to McCain (or to Palin as the GOP campaign is stating). The point is that he made the insult, and intended it as such. Furthermore, he did not stop to consider the automatic connection the republicans would made with his comment and Palin’s. Is this the way that he talk about foreign leaders or other public figures? Obama’s lack of foresight in understanding how his words can be twisted (if indeed he didn’t intend them to be understood that way) is troubling. The words spoken by the president should be carefully constructed and delivered, and not carefree or careless. If his ‘off the cuff’ comments are an example of what is to come in an Obama presidency, it is indicative of his immaturity as a leader, and just how far back on the learning curve he is.

Biden’s comments are all to true…

Text of the video.

STEPHANOPOULOS: … You were asked: Is he ready? You said, “I think he can be ready, but right now I don’t believe he is. The presidency is not something that lends itself to on-the-job training.”

BIDEN: I think I stand by the statement.

I stand by his statement too.
