Obama: Ready to be President?

Obama May Not Return to D.C. for Bailout Vote

This is so typical of Barack Obama:  Uninvolved in the people's work, putting career above all:

Although Barack Obama argues that the financial meltdown is an “emergency situation”, he said today that he may remain on the campaign trail, rather than returning to the Capitol, to vote on the $700 billion plan.

“Look if we get a consensus and everybody is popping champagne – then I will probably be going back to campaign with folks who are having a tough time in places like Ohio, and Michigan and Pennsylvania,” Obama said adding, “If this ends up being a close vote or a vote where the outcome is an open question then obviously this is a top priority.”

In other words, Obama has no inclination to roll up his sleeves and try to craft a bill.  Either he has nothing to add (bad) or he considers his campaign the top priority (worse).  (Underline added.)

Bottom line:  This what we can expect from a Obama presidency.  We do not need that!

The AP is at it again

The antiAmerican Press (aka, AP) is at it again.  Here is their lead:

Laura Bush: Palin lacks foreign policy experience

And, here is part of what is in the article:

First lady Laura Bush says Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin lacks sufficient foreign policy experience but is a very quick study.

So, what is my problem here?

First of all, the lead is totally misleading.  Most people don't read the news.  They read the headline on their way to the comics page.  Anyone that read the article or followed Gov. Palin's on-air statements would perceive she is bright and well-read.

Second, Barack Obama has no more foreign policy experience, but that doesn't seem to matter to the AP.

The Associated Press is less of a reporting organization than it is a water carrier for the Left Wing of this country.

Palin should avoid anti-Iran rally

Palin blames Dems for withdrawn rally invitation [1]

"This should be an issue that unites all Americans. Iran should not be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons, period," Palin said at a rally here. "Unfortunately, some Democrat partisans put politics first and now no elected official can appear. This should not be a matter of partisan politics."

It is not partisan politics here.  As a potential representative of our elected government, Palin should avoid these types of rallies so as to not compromise her status as statesman.  She will have adequate opportunity as candidate and as vice president to voice a position on Iran.

Obama's foot and mouth disease

Coming on the heels of  Gov. Palin's convention speech in which she ad-libbed the now-famous comparison of a pit bull and a hockey mom, the motivation for Obama's use of the lipstick on a pig [1] adage is suspect.  Especially when you consider he later disparaged Palin by referring to her as the mayor of Wasilly.
