Let's say for the sake of arguement that this is a gaffe. But being it is from the Huffington Post, I have my doubts.....
McCain/Palin will win in 2008.....and yes there will be riots.
Like I stated in a post before, no one is perfect, and it is most certain that mistakes will occur during speaking engagements. When a candidate is
under Television Coverage and essentially "On The Record" 24 Hours a Day, 365 Days a Year, we will see and hear every last mistake they ever make.
However, Obama has made so many of these errors as opposed to any current, or previous candidate, that one must wonder how he will do during the
actual live debate sessions.
For instance, I heard Obama today speak an outright lie which was obviously an attempt to place himself in John McCain's shoes. He first stated that
he has the upmost respect for the military, and he sees it as a truly noble profession. Well, I find this highly unlikely seeing how he treated the
U.S. Marines at Bagram AFB in Afghanistan. An Individual there sent me a letter describing how they all lined up to shake Obama's hand, but he
brushed by EVERY single one of them, went into a tent to shoot a basketball for the cameras, and he then left, all while ignoring the Military
personnel lined up to meet him.
Now, as if that is not something, Obama then went on to describe how he was going to join the Military, but when he graduated from High School,
Vietnam had ended, so he no longer felt the urgency for such enlistment. He then said that he did however enroll in the Selective Service upon
graduation. He graduated in 1979, but Selective Service did not become active until Mid-Summer of 1980. When it did become active, he had NO choice
BUT to Register.
ALSO, during this VERY same interview, Obama said "My Muslim Faith", and he actually continued on with his statement until George Stephanopoulos
corrected him by saying "Christian". I am not claiming what this slip-up does or does not indicate, but these are two major mistakes within the very
same interview, by a candidate who has had the last nine months to gain speaking experience, and grow accustomed to his media attention.
Without a Teleprompter, Obama is not a quick nor clever minded individual. John McCain on the other hand lacks Obama's poise and power when speaking
before massive audiences with a Teleprompter, but he is extremely quick-witted when speaking naturally. The Debates should be VERY interesting to say
In regards to the idea of "Riots", I hate to say it but I also see this occurring to some degree if Obama loses. However, they had riots during the
last Presidential Inauguration in 2005, right alongside the Parade Route. With that considered, I know we will see Anarchist Protestor Riots, but I
sincerely hope we do not see any race based ones. We need to be civilized no matter who wins.
