Obama Responds...and Education

It's about time. The Obama campaign finally takes on the lies and distortions of the McCain campaign in this ad released this morning.




Who is better prepared to be president?

Let's start with education.

Think about your president. Shouldn't he...or she...be someone who is highly and appropriately educated? OK, then let's look at the education background of the candidates. Thanks, Tom and Erica for sending me information on this.

Obama:
Occidental College - Two years.
Columbia University - B.A. political science with a specialization in international relations.
Harvard - Juris Doctor (J.D.) Magna Cum Laude

Biden:
University of Delaware - B.A. in history and B.A. in political science.
Syracuse University College of Law - Juris Doctor (J.D.)

McCain:
United States Naval Academy - Class rank 894 of 899

Palin:
Hawaii Pacific University - 1 semester
North Idaho College - 2 semesters - general study
University of Idaho - 2 semesters - journalism
Matanuska-Susitna College - 1 semester
University of Idaho - 3 semesters - B.A. in journalism

I wonder why Palin transferred so often?

To administer the law or enforce the law, which is sort of what the job of the executive branch of government is, isn't an understanding of the law important? And to uphold the constitution of the United States, wouldn't an understanding of the U. S. Constitution be helpful.

Joe Biden teaches a seminar on constitutional law at Widener University.

Barack Obama taught constitutional law at Chicago School of Law for 12 years (1992 to 2004).

Based on education and understanding of the constitution, who do you think is better prepared to be president and vice president of our country?

What??? What did that ad take on? OMG. All it said was that McCain voted with W 90% of the time.

How about this...AT LEAST HE VOTED!!!!! He didn't just say "present".

As for the education info...is that all you have? Is that it? Show us some EXPERIENCE GOVERNING Joe. You can't. He DOESN'T HAVE ANY.

LMAO.

You people (dems) kill me.

McCain / Palin in 2008.

Don't vote for a black guy just because he's black. Vote for someone based on experience.

John,
Grow up.

On this blog, I have compared Obama's energy policy to McCain's. I have compared Obama's veterans policy to McCain's. Now I have compared their education. Give me time, I will compare Obama to McCain on several other subjects and no one with any sense will vote for McCain.

By the way, McCain has no executive experience of course. but he does have adultery experience.

John from Hoover said...

OMG...you don't EVEN want to go there (-Clinton, Edwards-) do you Joe??? LOL

McCain has been a Senator for how long?

John, John, John my boy. You are talking to a wall. There is nothing you could say to change the mind of gay, liberal activists like Joe. Their anti-life, anti-gun, anti-war, pro-gay agenda is all that matters to them.
If the republican nominee had Obama's record (or lack thereof) we would NEVER hear the end of it.

Oh thats right, the Obama campaign has not aired one "nasty" ad. Every politician is guilty on airing disgusting ads. Obama is no saint in this department.

Joe Openshaw said...

John,
Clinton is not running for president, nor is John Edwards.

John in Hoover said...

Clinton was president (..which is why we had to deal with 911 and why we still have not brought in OBL even though Clinton had NUMEROUS opps to take him out) and Edwards WAS running for president.

It is typical of how the dems work.

Joe Openshaw said...

Ok than Ronald Reagan was president and he was an adulterer. Newt Gingrich was an adulterer. Giuliani was an adulterer. I could go on.

9/11 happened on Bush's watch, and he ignored the warnings. that is a fact.

ronnie said...

uh NO JOE....9/11 happened in Bush's first term but go read about it....study.....think before you speak. the men who pulled off 9/11 came to this country and were training on CLINTON'S watch. Thanks to Bush and the formation of the Dept. of H.S. we have not allowed this to take place again. 9/11 was TOTALLY on Clinton's watch and he should be held personally responsible!!!!

Joe Openshaw said...

"9/11 was TOTALLY on Clinton's watch"

Clinton left office in January 2001, Bush became president. 9/11 occured September 11, 2001. Any fool that can read a calendar can see that Bush was in office, therefore, it was on his watch.

On August 6, 2001, while Bush was president, a daily briefing titled "Bin Laden determined to attack inside the United States" included this: "FBI information... indicates patterns of suspicious activity in this country, consistent with preparations for hijackings or other types of attack." Condi testified "it wasn't something that we felt we needed to do anything about".

Clinton did not receive, and ignore, that briefing. Bush ignored it. Thousands dead. Thanks, W.

Ya'll need to do some homework and get out of this denial, shift the blame mode you are in.
