@Mark B - thanks for pointing out Obama's only strength: campaigning as an
unknown, with a media corps that's either unwilling to vet him, or
supporting him with mockery and attacks on anyone who might undertake to vet
him.Time to get the professional campaigner out of the White House.
mo's question might not be sincere, but here's the short answer.
Barack Obama won his pary's nomination from its best known, best financed
candidate, then took on another senator in the general election. It happened to
take place during the last months of a notoriously bungling administration
(GWB), which the GOP did not bother to differentiate itself from. It all took
about 22 months, during which Obama exploited his opponents' weaknesses and
avoided saying things which sounded stupid. Whining about his
qualifications four years later seems a little silly. Obama, after all, is the
only candidate in this race who has BEEN president. It's like calling TR a
Pros and Cons? Obama excels in the Con dept. How else could he have ever been
elected? No experience and I mean none in any thing. He does now and that is
expeience in failed policies.
