Obama's Failing

Obama is asked about his own failings and he claims that he- and Americans- are selfish.

Americans gave nearly $300 billion to charitable causes last year, setting a record and besting the 2005 total that had been boosted by a surge in aid to victims of hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma and the Asian tsunami.

It's true that Obama's own charitable donations are not anything to brag about but he slanders the USA when he brings them into the discussion.

Gaudiani said Americans give twice as much as the next most charitable country, according to a November 2006 comparison done by the Charities Aid Foundation. In philanthropic giving as a percentage of gross domestic product, the U.S. ranked first at 1.7%. No. 2 Britain gave 0.73%, while France, with a 0.14% rate, trailed such countries as South Africa, Singapore, Turkey and Germany.

He then went on to accuse Clarence Thomas of not being experienced enough to sit on the Supreme Court. Thomas has been criticised for serving only a year in the DC Court of Appeals. As opposed to Barack Obama's 143 days of experience before he thought he was experienced enough to be in the White House.
