Seriously, I thought this was a joke when I first read it. Barry O. actually said this:
"The day I'm inaugurated, not only will the country look at itself differently, but the world will look at America differently," Obama told an
audience in Audubon, Iowa, last month, "because not only do I have the experience of working at the highest levels of government on foreign policy
but also because the leaders of others counties will know that I've got family members that live in small villages in Africa that are poor so I
know what they're going through."
1. Is Obama really that wacked to think that foreign leaders like Vladimir Putin or Armadinajad give a rat's ass that he has poor relatives in
2. Since his audience was American voters, does he really think American's are so stupid that anybody would believe this idiocy and find it a reason
to vote for him?
"Yup... that does it. I'm going to vote for Barry O. now that I know he has them poor relatives living in Africa. That's going to give him so
much more street cred when he sits down to negotiate with Kim Jong II."
I wonder if this will be a main theme that Barry O. goes to in the debates when he compares his experience with McCain's.
McCain -23 years as a Navy officer, 26 years in the Senate.
Obama -"Well... um.... I have poor relatives living in African villages..."
So let's stick to the subject of this thread and not derail it with insults and diversions about why you don't think McCain would make a better
Here's the question:
Does anybody here believe that any foreign leader will care that Obama has poor relatives living in African villages?
Or was this just a way for Obama to *attempt* to relate to the poor black voters here in the U.S? Since he has no poor black friends or relatives
here, he had to mention he has poor black relatives living in villages in Africa?
