Obama stresses life experience. At a private meeting with journalists and executives in Manhattan last week, he claimed he had better judgment than “any other candidate.” “And I don’t base that simply on the fact that I was right on the war in Iraq,” he said, according to a transcript provided by campaign staff. “But if you look at how I approached that problem, what I was drawing on was a set of experiences that come from a life of living overseas, having family overseas, being able to see the world through the eyes of people outside our borders. The notion that somehow from Washington you get this vast foreign-policy experience is illusory.”
That may be well phrased. But in reality, Obama lived “overseas in Indonesia” for just four years as a kid. And voters may not warm to a candidate whose judgments are shaped by overseas relatives.
UPDATE: I just knew that BHOO would come through and say/do enough things to justify my changing his acronym to BOOHOO. The above quote and this cartoon do the trick:
The name is now Barack O-bomb-a Overseas Hussein Obambi Obama — BOOHOO.
