So, let me get this straight... You think that because a Hillary Clinton supporter broke the law and hacked Obama's website, that says something
about him and his ability to be the president? Interesting theory.
That's kind of like saying that if someone's identity gets stolen, they're not prepared to take the job of a bank manager.... Yeah, kind of
1. I seriously doubt that Obama himself had anything to do with website security. That's not his job and is quite a different job, in fact, than
running the country. I think we were ALL unprepared for the barrage of attacks, Internet and otherwise, that he would be under. Surely you're not
saying that a criminal attack is the fault of the victim, are you?
Further, I think it's pretty responsible for him to advertise for the job. I hope he gets the best there is. He apparently needs it.
2. I don't believe computer and website experience is required to be the president. So, the experience issue is really moot. Besides, IF computer
experience is required, John McCain is REALLY in trouble! -
3. I have no idea where you get the idea that Obama is "extremely complacent" with security. He hired someone to do a job and a criminal from his
opponent's campaign hacked his website. I suppose if you had a security system installed in your house and someone managed to break through it, it
would be your fault because of how "extremely complacent" you are about keeping your family safe?
I think the conclusions you draw are FAR OUT to say the least.
And as regards your title"Obama Weak On Security & Asking For Help", in my opinion, if you're weak on something the VERY smartest thing you can do
is ask for help from someone who can help. So, since Obama is NOT a computer security professional, I think the right thing for him to do is
ask for help from someone who is.
