Obama: Young and Foolish

Romney Takes Obama To the Woodshed
By Bill Sammon

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama came under fire Tuesday for saying that U.S. troops in Afghanistan are "just air-raiding villages and killing civilians." The junior senator from Illinois made the comment Monday at a campaign stop in Nashua, New Hampshire.

"We've got to get the job done there," he said of Afghanistan. "And that requires us to have enough troops so that we're not just air-raiding villages and killing civilians, which is causing enormous problems there."

The comment drew a rebuke Tuesday from the campaign of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

"That is a very troubling remark on so many levels," said Romney spokesman Kevin Madden. "Most importantly, it's emblematic of Senator Obama's lack of experience for the job of commander-in-chief. But it's also an entirely inaccurate condemnation of the efforts of the men and women of the United States military who are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan."

Barack Hussein Obama, a member of the United States Senate, a member of the following:
Senate Foreign Relations Committee
Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee
Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions Committee
Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs Committee

The amount of top secret briefings a committee member is given on 3 of these committees should enlighten even the most mentally challenged American. How Senator Obama can utter the remarks he has about our troops' combat conduct is mind-boggling. This man is not only unqualified to be President, he appears to asleep at the wheel in the Senate. For heaven's sake. What a dimwit!

He's saying it all just for political gain in the election. I don't think he has a clue in the world he'll have to live by those words...
