No Stamina

Time to bash Bush-

Barack Obama, caught up in the fervor of a campaign speech Tuesday, drastically overstated the Kansas tornadoes death toll, saying thousands had died.

"In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died -- an entire town destroyed," Obama said in a 27-minute speech to 500 people packed into a sweltering art studio for a fundraiser.

The death toll was 12.

Oops. And nevermind that the bones of his argument (that the National Guard has only 40% of its equipment in place because of Iraq) a complete fabrication.

"There are going to be times when I get tired. There are going to be times when I get weary. There are going to be times when I make mistakes," he said.

He's been campaigning for what, a couple of months? What's he going to be like after a year in office? I think this is evidence that Obama needs a good deal more actual experience before running for President.
