I suggest that we all join up a swiftboat this presumptive First Czar of the United Socialist States of Amerika. This guy is a Gaffe-omatic second to none.
Most of us know beyond a shadow of a doubt that each term of the presidency is 4 years. We also know that if a sitting president is re-elected, his total term - barring removal via impeachment - will be 8 years. Apparently, Barack doesn't know that.
I ran across this post at STACLU and it only solidified my concerns over Obama's Civilian National Security Force. The guy speaks out of both sides of his butt cheeks and carries on as if he is an intelligent member of society. He may be a smart fellow but not only do I doubt his patriotism to THIS nation, I seriously call into question his viable intelligence. Someone is pulling his strings and he is one confused fellow - or, he is announcing to the world his ultimate intentions. Behold:
[...] Today on CBS's Face the Nation, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., in Afghanistan, told the paparazzi-pursued correspondent Lara Logan that "the objective of this trip was to have substantive discussions with people like President Karzai or Prime Minister Maliki or President Sarkozy or others who I expect to be dealing with over the next eight to 10 years." [...]
Eight to ten years, Barack? Where did that extra two years come from? One more thing, Barack. Why is it that you Democrats seem to think that you can violate the Logan Act at will? Oh. Wait. Don't answer that one. No one in DC has the cajones to enforce the law. What am I talking about? Glad you asked.
"And it's important for me to have a relationship with them early, that I start listening to them now, getting a sense of what their interests and concerns are."
AHEM! You are a United States Senator at the moment, Barack. You are not the president yet and you have no authority whatsoever to be making American Foreign Policy on a campaign/photo-op trip to anywhere, let alone the Middle East.
What if McCain or any other GOP type said such things? What would be the leading story in the lame Stream Media?
For an alleged constitutional scholar, Barack sure is an idiot.
