Obama Lacks Self-Control

Another example of Obama's exceedingly bad judgement and inexperience- if he gets "overheated" delivering prepared lines on the campaign trail, just how is how going to fare in high-intensity talks with foreign leaders with potentially devastating consequences?

In an interview with Fortune to be featured in the magazine’s upcoming issue, the presumptive Democratic nominee backed off his harshest attacks on the free trade agreement and indicated he didn’t want to unilaterally reopen negotiations on NAFTA.

“Sometimes during campaigns the rhetoric gets overheated and amplified,” he conceded, after I reminded him that he had called NAFTA “devastating” and “a big mistake,” despite nonpartisan studies concluding that the trade zone has had a mild, positive effect on the U.S. economy.

Does that mean his rhetoric was overheated and amplified? “Politicians are always guilty of that, and I don’t exempt myself,” he answered.

Translation- I lied and got caught out but I still got the nomination- now I don't need to lie any more, those poor Dem voters don't have any other choice but me now.

And Ed Morrissey definitely deserves a quote on this-

It’s great that Obama doesn’t exempt himself from being a politician, but wasn’t that the entire point of the Obama campaign — that he wasn’t just another politician? Now the harbinger of New Politics, the man who would clean up DC, shrugs off an outright lie by calling it “overheated rhetoric”.

If we want just another politician, can we get one with some executive experience, military experience, and/or a legislative track record that exceeds what can be counted on the thumbs of one hand?

Precisely- but since the media was absent during the Primaries in regard to vetting Obama, Democrat voters are left with an inexperienced, duplicitous Chicago politician who becomes less and less deisreable with each passing day. Care to bet that we'd have a Hillary-McCain line up now if the press weren't so in the tank for Obama for the past year when they gave Americans a lot of messiah-superstar nonsense and ingored this joker's blank CV and his ability to bend like a reed in the political winds of change?
