The Criticism of Barak Obama

By The Reverend Published: August 25, 2007


The main criticism I've heard against Barak Obama, thus far, is his alleged inexperience. Critics of Obama just couldn't wag their heads enough when Barak spoke of going after Bin Laden without Pakistan's approval. You know, sovereignty and all. Here are Obama's actual words....

"If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and president Musharraf won't act, we will," Obama said on Wednesday. Link

Hillary criticizes Obama for the statement, but does so in an oblique schoolmarmy manner.....

"You can think big but remember you shouldn't always say everything you think when you're running for president because it could have consequences across the world and we don't need that right now," said Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y. Link

Paraphrasing Hillary, " You may be right young man, but did you brush your teeth before you stepped onto the stage tonight? Because unbrushed teeth have consequences and Lord knows we don't need unbrushed teeth consequences on this stage right now."

Chris Dodd(D-Conn), also running for the Dem presidential candidacy,(or a spot in Hillary's cabinet, I can't tell which) was sharper in his words......

Dodd chimed in, saying, "It was a mistake in my view to suggest somehow that going in unilaterally ... into Pakistan, was somehow in our interest. That, I think, is dangerous." Link

Then the flip-flopper himself, the stereotypical "I'll say anything to get elected", Republican politician, Mitt Romney, piled on...

"I think his comments were ill-timed and ill-considered," Romney said. Link

"You look at that Democratic debate, I had to laugh at what I saw Barack Obama do," Romney said in reference to the CNN/You Tube debate last month in South Carolina. "I mean in one week he went from saying he's going to sit down, you know, for tea, with our enemies, but then he's going to bomb our allies. I mean he's gone from Jane Fonda to Dr. Strangelove in one week." Link

Yeah that Barak....dangerous talk....just a kid, really....stick your hand out Barak, I'm going to give you a frap with my ruler....too green....not dry behind the ears....he just is so inexperienced.... makes you laugh....he would go into Pakistan after Bin Laden without Musharraf's consent....can you believe a silly whippersnapper would say something like that? So silly. One minute he's Jane Fonda, the next, Dr. Strangelove.....ha, ha....I had to laugh...

Newly uncovered "rules of engagement" show the U.S. military gave elite units broad authority more than three years ago to pursue suspected terrorists into Pakistan, with no mention of telling the Pakistanis in advance.

The documents obtained by The Associated Press offer a detailed glimpse at what Army Rangers and other terrorist-hunting units were authorized to do earlier in the war on terror. And interviews with military officials suggest some of those same guidelines have remained in place, such as the right to "hot pursuit" across the border. Source

But hey....youthful Barak Obama is just not as wise and serious as all those other experienced and seasoned politicians. Just guessing wildly here....maybe that's not such a bad thing.
