The Obamamessiah is far too busy campaigning to keep track of what his responsibilities in the Senate are to the American people. Perhaps that is why we have this latest little gaffe:
Here’s the transcript:
This, this, uh, this past week we passed out of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee, which is my committee, a bill to, uh, call for divestment from Iran.
The only problem? The U.S. Senate Banking Committee isn’t Obama’s committee. He doesn’t serve on it, nor does he serve on any of its subcommittees. Yet Mr. Smooth Operator over there effortlessly lied about his involvement with the committee. Why? To boost his credentials? To try and hide his lack of experience? To make himself look more serious on the threat from Iran? Who knows?
The thing is, it doesn’t matter why he did it. Either he lied, or he was mistaken. And if he was mistaken, then he still doesn’t get a pass. Do we really want a President who has no clue whatsoever what committees he serves on and what his responsibilities are? He either doesn’t care about the job he holds now or he has no grasp on how to successfully carry out his responsibilities as a Senator. It’s one or the other, and neither of those situations inspire much confidence in the man.
Once again, Obama wants to claim credit for efforts on which he served no role. Either that, or Obama is such a dilettante that he has no idea on which committees he actually belongs. It could even be both. Neither gives any confidence that Obama has any grasp at all of his own job, let alone the one for which he’s campaigning. Maybe he needed a lot more than three years to get acclimated to national politics.
Of course, the Obamamessiah is way too important to leave us with just that. He also gives us this interesting little gem:
“Let me be absolutely clear,” Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, said today at a press conference in Amman, Jordan. “Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s. It will be a strong friend of Israel’s under a McCain…administration. It will be a strong friend of Israel’s under an Obama administration. So that policy is not going to change.”
You know, I’m glad he pointed out that Israel will always have a strong ally in Israel. Because I was having the worst suspicion that the Israelis were going to sell Israel out to the Palestinians and Hezbollah. But now that the Obamamessiah has reminded me that Israel will always have a strong friend in Israel, I feel so much better. That just makes so much sense. Whew!
Such a charismatic, intelligent man, eh? But let’s just all remember that questioning the Obamamessiah in any way, shape, or form automatically makes you a racist. So unless you want to be called a KKK racist, then you better just get in line for the Obamamessiah and not even bother fighting it. He stands for hope and change, and that’s all you need to know.
