Skip to comments.Gods Deciding Obama Is Man For Oval Office (Barf Alert)
Posted on 07/23/2008 7:16:50 PM PDT by Kaslin
It made no sense when Barack Obama left the country on his nine-day overseas tour for some of my fellow columnists to describe it as a high-risk venture.
Foreign leaders, who can read the polls as well as anyone, would go out of their way not to embarrass a man who may, six months from now, be president of the United States.
Obama prepares thoroughly for the big occasions. He is almost always well-briefed, and he was traveling in sharp company with Sens. Jack Reed and Chuck Hagel so you knew he would be thoroughly ready for these meetings. The chance of a major screw-up was minimal.
And, as millions of Americans who watched the primary campaign learned, Obama is invariably articulate and well-spoken. There would be no verbal gaffes.
So where was the risk? It existed mainly in the minds of some journalists and, perhaps, in the musings of Obama staffers who wanted to hype the journey.
Acknowledging all that, it is still the case that Obama has pulled it off in great style and thereby enhanced his credentials for the Oval Office.
What he could not have guaranteed was the role that luck played in the surrounding events and the cast of supporting players. When, on the first day of the trip, he stepped onto the basketball court at the air base in Kuwait and sent his first three-point shot cleanly through the basket, you knew the gods had decided to favor him.

It’s crap like this from the MSM that might actually push me to vote for McCain.
Who knew IBD editorialists smoke pot?
The barf alert wasn’t for IBD, but for Robert S. Broder a big liberal
“And, as millions of Americans who watched the primary campaign learned, Obama is invariably articulate and well-spoken. There would be no verbal gaffes.”
“Acknowledging all that, it is still the case that Obama has pulled it off in great style and thereby enhanced his credentials for the Oval Office.”
Has Broder found a new favorite tobacco substitute? Does he drink to excess? Has he watched Obama off the teleprompter the past few weeks? Has he watched any of the coverage off Obama’s statements and press conferences from the Middle East?
This Broder column is unbelievable.
Oh, I get it. Its David Broder, who usually has his lips pressed against the buttocks of any democrat.
No doubt the god the author of this story is referring to is speled s-a-t-a-n.
Broder is like a horse on its last legs.
Let the old coot puff up one more liberal for old time sake.
With a nod to the old proverb, allow me to suggest that whom the gods would destroy, they first give great power.
“Well briefed” in Obama’s case can only mean that the author has seen and was impressed by the candidates underwear.
There Must be video of those 5 shots Obama missed. They wouldn’t know if he was going to make the shot until it was over. Someone needs to get those tapes and Prove what a fake Obama is to the American Public.

8 minutes of ums and uhs in a 40 minute Q&A. Or roughly 1 minute of uh and um per every 5 minutes. Or 12 seconds of every minute for 40 minutes was um and uh.
Yeah, he sounds REAAAAAAAL articulate.
Socialists lie. Always.
Brak Obama is half-white. Hasn’t he heard it said from Hollywood that White Men Can’t Jump???
Spoken like a true pagan polytheist, though demons might also be possible in this context.
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh...are you sure about that, David? You typical white person.
The man is completely incapable of speaking off the cuff and not embarrassing himself. McCain needs to work tirelessly to force him out from behind the teleprompter.
