According to the leftwing website "The Politico," Barack Obama (or, as Ted Kennedy calls him, "Osama Barama...Barama Osama...Osama Obama") is making "rookie mistakes" in his presidential run.
Mistakes? Are these mistakes? Or are they the true musings of a liar and fraud who should not be running for President after two years in the US Senate in which has done absolutely nothing of substance?
Rookie Mistakes Plague Obama
Speaking early this month at a church in Selma, Ala., Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) said: "I'm in Washington. I see what's going on. I see those powers and principalities have snuck back in there, that they're writing the energy bills and the drug laws."
It was a fine populist riff calculated to appeal to Democratic audiences as Obama seeks his party's presidential nomination. But not only did Obama vote for the Senate's big energy bill in 2005, he also put out a press release bragging about its provisions, and his Senate Web site carries a news article about the vote headlined, "Senate energy bill contains goodies for Illinois."
The press release said he voted for the bill "reluctantly" because he wanted something "bolder," and his staff says there was nothing inconsistent about the comment in Selma.
While trivial, the remark is the sort of throwaway line that can trip up a candidate in the heat of a national campaign, and it shows the challenge the young senator will face in coming days as his words are dissected and scrutinized with fresh intensity.
This story actually showed that Obama has an "Al Gore" problem - he makes shit up out of whole cloth about himself and, when questioned, feigns ignorance of the story or blames it on a bad memory. That is called diversion, an attempt to make yourself look better and call those who discover your lies as some sort of bad person.
What is plain is that Obama is a fraud and a liar. He is also involved in some shady business dealings in Illinois that make Whitewater look like a penny-ante land deal. Perhaps if the imbecilic American media would get off their collective asses and probe Obama's stories, they will find a man who is trying to put a really nice shine on a really bad piece of crap.
